    Really pathetic to see some liberals up in arms due to coverage Gabby Petito has received. A young girl, seemed a bit troubled, gets killed and instead of showing some sort of empathy, flooding twitter claiming this is white priviledge, racism. Twitter is probably struggling to the manage the traffic of the white people haters... fueled by hatred. Some re even claiming her boyfriend has received special treatment whilst George Floyd arrested for a '$20 bill.'

    But why do i feel need to post this thread? due to the hypocrisy and ignorance i'm witnessing.

    Let's review the facts and expose those frauds out there spewing hatred.

    1. Many white people go missing and never even covered in media, yeah, even very pretty white girls

    2. Since the Michael Brown incident (years ago) twice as many white people have been killed by cops vs blacks. Are these liberals up in arms about this too? That lifelong criminals like George Floyd (who once robbed a pregnant woman at gun point) and thugs like Mike Brown received all this coverage, hailed as 'heros' whilst many more white people gunned by cops (many of them better human beings than these two) never received a second of TV coverage?

    3. So Brian Laundrie receiving special treatment but George Floyd not? facts are facts, let's actually go over facts. George Floyd was actually caught breaking the law, being disorderly, resisting arrest. There still isn't any evidence that Brian Laundrie actually committed the murder. The body has just been found, so maybe FBI now has evidence and maybe why they declared it a crime scene and hunting Brian down but before, they had no evidence. Whilst there were suspicious circumstances, 0 evidence to charge Brian with a crime. So, no matter what the suspicions were, no reason to arrest him, maybe there is now


    So facts are facts but many liberals don't care about facts. The hypocrisy here is sickening. Liberals are perfectly ok when only blacks killed at hands of police are on TV all the time, they don't care about white lives. Then, they ignore facts as to why George Floyd was arrested vs Brian laundrie not being arrested before body was found.

    Lastly, they ignore the real reasons - media ratings. The media doesn't care when a white person is killed by a white cop, it's not media ratings worthy. Nor do they care when it's a white girl who goes missing without any 'ratings worthy' drama surrounding it. Here, they saw an opportunity - girl vlogger goes on trip with 'controlling, jealous BF, BF returns alone to Florida' So the story is sensationalized given circumstances - love, romance, vlogger, jealously, controlling BF, fatal attraction, mysterious/strange/inexplicable behavior. DING!DING!DING

    I find it so disgusting when so many fueled by white hate can't pause to show any empathy, just want to go on their white hating spree... this is the real reason, not social justice.

    Media ratings are just a factor of public interest.

    People are shaming the public over not caring about the other missing people. Whether or not I agree with people doing it, seems to me that they are attacking the source of the issue.

    i agree it's the media, but these same people weren't up in arms when media was ignoring the whites getting killed by cops (twice as many as blacks) yet giving all these black people 24/7 coverage..... many of them were not good human beings.

    it's hypocrisy and thus i conclude it's more than just attacking media, it's also white hate.

    It's not the media, it's the people who consume the media.

    The hypocrisy is irrelevant. Is their point valid?

    It is definitely not white hate. They are pointing out how casual racism (in favor of white people) is pervasive in our society. They are trying to get more attention on the non white missing people, they aren't trying to inspire hatred towards white people.

    not when it comes to victims at hands of cops, only black lives matter here, white lives don't matter, even though twice as many whites are killed by cops vs blacks killed by cops. So you agree there is racism (in favor of blacks) when it comes to covering police shootings? these people complaining about this too?

    where is the evidence on this? show me evidence. There are more missing white people in the US than any other race. Where is your evidence to support that they get more attention? Many are just ignored..

    I think the reason Gabby Petito is getting this attention is the circumstances.. vlogger, on trip with BF, BF returns alone, in her van.... etc.. etc.. I guarantee you that if both of them would've just disappeared together, may not have received any attention. There are many whites who go missing and nothing is covered..

    It's the same old 'cry racism before anything else and be hypocritical (only when whites get attention, not when only blacks get it)'


    missing people by race.

    Maybe more people should get mad about white people getting killed by the police. it doesn't invalidate the point of BLM really. In fact, use of force by police should be a national issue not related to race, but there doesn't seem to be much interest by many white people.

    I can't recall the last time that the nation paid attention to a missing black child.

    I can remember Kaylee Anthony, Elizabeth Smart, Abby and Libby, and quite a few others whose names i can't recall at the moment that all had multiple days of national attention. I think they do have a valid point.

    Either way, there isn't any reason for us white people to get our panties in a bunch every time someone points out racial disparity in the country.

    I wonder why the local liberal news channels will splatter this story all over the airways. They have reporters from Detroit down in Florida and Wyoming doing local news here in Detroit.
    Yet……yet…. When a young black woman from Detroit goes missing………………………silence. Nothing. Not a peep. I guess the liberals are just trying to say that Black Lives don’t matter, especially black females. but this white girl, she’s worth plastering all over the airwaves? Liberals, just to easy to figure out.

    They put things on TV because people watch it.

    Their ratings would go down if they spent this much time looking for a missing black girl.

    Mike Brown (thug who attacked a cop), George Floyd (lifelong criminal who once assaulted a pregnant woman), Rashard brooks (who assaulted police officers), keith Lamont Scott (had a gun and refused to put it down)..

    All these black people, got 24/7 coverage, hailed as 'heros'.. yet, many more whites were killed by cops during same period, not given 1 minute of TV coverage given yo them. Remember the the unarmed Trump supporter who was shot and killed by a cop at capitol riot? has received no attention from media.

    All these people complaining about coverage Gabby has received also complain about the bias in favor of blacks when it comes to police shootings? NAH

    and, many whites go missing and never covered by media, the list is very long (320k whites missing as of 2020). This case is unusual and media covering it for ratings, not because they care about this person being white.

    I have seen it about missing black children and teenagers but the fact is if this was just a local missing person/murder it wouldn't have gotten this much coverage. It's the circumstances just as with the others you listed that is getting coverage. I've never seen anything like this, the guy shows up back home without her, it's a week before they tell her parents he's back without her, he goes back out there and drives HER van back, they finally tell the police days later she is missing and the guy shuts up, they find the body and he's disappeared. Just WEIRD.

    I don't think race is driving it I mean this is the stuff movies are made of. And the fact the murders of black children is a common place occurrence every weekend, it is almost expected to read on a Monday morning how many people were shot in black urban areas and how many were kids. After a while there is a dulling factor you can only give so much empathy I guess.

    Look at all the crime shows on TV the real ones and the fictional ones, how my of those OIC or CIO or whatever they are. People are interested in crime especially when the circumstances are so STRANGE as in this case.

    Racial disparity is right. I can name a bunch of blacks who had a rough time of it, blacks like Michael brown, Freddie gray, Floyd, and others who received National attention, but I can’t name a single white guy who got anywhere near the amount of coverage when he had a bad time with the police. I can’t think of a single white guy who was killed by the police and received 3 televised funerals and a moment of kneeling at the Capital.

    there were over 50 shootings in Chicago this weekend. Do you think the likes of CNN or mSNBC will have panel discussions about them?

    The difference is implied and presumed racism. Floyd wouldn't be a top news item without the racism narrative to try to spin it around. Racism (even just false claims of it) sells better than mere police brutality.

    Seems to me the gabby Petito case is being underreported, sloppily reported, and strangely reported. I see where they have apparently found her body, but no context is given as to how she died or what condition her remains were in when they found her, or if for certain it really was her body they found. Something just doesn't seem to add up in this case.

    Anyone explain to me why lifelong criminals and cop attackers like george floyd, rayshard brooks, mike brown deserved 24/7 tv coverage, statutes, publicly televised funerals but ashli babbit deserved no coverage by liberal media? Same for all the whites who were killed by cops, twice as many as blacks killed by cops.

    Gabby petito, by all accounts, was a better human being than these violent criminals... i say she deserves much more coverage than they received.

    Missing White Woman Syndrome: An Empirical Analysis of Race and Gender Disparities in Online News Coverage of Missing Persons

    Sophisticated document. The bit that counts:

    CONCLUSION This study takes a major step toward filling four major holes in the relevant literatures. First, it uses both national and local data to establish grounds for the claim that Missing White Woman Syndrome is an empirical fact for abductees of all ages.

    So facts are facts but many liberals don't care about facts.

    Three months earlier, in August, California native Hannah Anderson disappeared, triggering a massive manhunt for her and her alleged kidnapper.(7) The incident sparked a media firestorm, with news agencies across the country covering the sixteen-year-old’s disappearance.(8 ) Local and national media outlets tracked the investigation,(9) with CNN.com alone publishing more than twenty print stories and over thirty video segments on the developments.(10)

    Looks like the liberals are the worst offenders.

    Floyd got so much coverage because there was a video of his murder by the police released by citizen journalists right after it occurred. On my direct TV lineup there are about 10 episodes of 48 hours, 2020 and Dateline on every day which are almost all lengthy reports of missing or murdered pretty white women. Most were ditched or killed by their white husbands, boyfriends or creepy neighbors. I love true crime shows so I tape all three of those shows on several networks every day.
