Legacy Media SILENT After Black Man’s Execution of White 5-Year-Old

'The deception in selective reporting is their most potent weapon because it drives availability bias which, in turn, distorts reality...'

The left-wing media is maintaining it silence after a 5-year-old, white North Carolina boy was killed in cold blood by a black neighbor.

Conservatives on social media are now responding in full force, demanding that the same standards of outrage apply as did in recent killings where the races were reversed, the Daily Wire reported.

Darius Sessoms, 25, of Wilson has been charged with first-degree murder in the killing, which occurred late Sunday afternoon. He was apprehended on Monday by US Marshals after fleeing the scene.

It has been reported that the boy’s family had dined on Friday with the “alleged” killer, who publicly executed Cannon Hinnant after the boy rode a bike in his yard.

“[You] can’t imagine what it’s like to hold your son in your arms with a gunshot wound to the head, and his blood is running down your arms,” said the boy’s father, Austin Hinnant, on Thursday prior to Cannon’s funeral, WRAL reported.

There is no evidence that the killing was racially motivated, and there is limited indication, thus far, as to what the motives were.

“I just don’t understand why he did it,” one neighbor told ABC11. “How can you walk up to a little boy point-blank and put a gun to his head, and just shoot him? How can anyone do that?”

Some reports suggest that Sessoms already was facing multiple felony charges prior to the killing.

But in the wake of recent race riots to protest social injustice under the banner of the Black Lives Matter movement, the level of rhetoric, paired with the partisan neglect of most media outlets, has turned the tragic case into another hyper-politicized tinder-box.

A tweet from social-media influencer Jason Howerton starkly laid out the media blackout at four of the leading broadcast news outlets.

Meanwhile, Cannon supporters sought to make the hashtag #SayHisName trend on social media, appropriating a similar call in cases like the police killing of 26-year-old black Kentucky resident Breonna Taylor.

The cause was embraced by conservative celebrities like James Woods and Antonio Sabáto Jr., both of whom retweeted the hashtag.

Black conservatives such as Twitter user Leonydus Johnson, host of the recently launched “Informed Dissent” podcast, also were among those who noted the double-standard.
