Here’s the full story from Newsbusters.
Frank Lombard is an associate director at Duke University’s Global Health Institute and a homosexual who was charged last week with the molestation of his adopted 5-year-old black son and actively trying to sell him for sex on the internet.
The 40 words above are 40 more than the Main Stream Media has said on this horrible story.
In nearly a week since Lombard was arrested, not one national broadcast or cable television news show has picked up the story. Compare this to the weeks on end of sensational coverage of the white male lacrosse players of the same university charged with rape several years ago.
At the time of this post not one television show has reported the story and only 17 newspapers in the United States featured it – a majority of which are only small local newspapers.
And most of these articles cited the American Press’ report on the events, which was as follows:
AP) WASHINGTON – A Duke University official has been arrested and charged with offering his adopted 5-year-old son for sex.
Frank Lombard, the school’s associate director of the Center for Health Policy, was arrested after an Internet sting, according to the FBI’s Washington field office and the city’s police department.
According to an affidavit by District of Columbia Police Det. Timothy Palchak, an unnamed informant facing charges in his own child sex case led authorities to Lombard.
Authorities said that Lombard tried to persuade a person -who he did not know was a police officer -to travel to North Carolina to have sex with Lombard’s child.
The detective’s affidavit charges Lombard identified himself online as “perv dad for fun,” and says that in an online chat with the detective, Lombard said he had sexually molested his son, whom he adopted as an infant.
The court papers say Lombard also invited the undercover detective to North Carolina to have sex with the young boy, and even suggested which hotel he should use.”
In response to the AP report, which most of the newspapers used almost verbatim, Mike Adams of Townhall made the observation that “The Associate Press (AP) did not mention the fact that the five-year old offered up for molestation was black. Bringing that fact to light might be damaging to the political coalition that exists between blacks and gays. Nor did the AP mention that the adopted child is being raised by a homosexual couple. Bringing that fact to light might harm the gay adoption movement.”
With this shocking lack of coverage of an even more shocking story, many are asking why this did not make the front pages and top headlines like the Duke lacrosse team scandal did. Thomas Lifson of American Thinker posited that “identity politics … apparently trumps all sense of outrage.”
Thanks to ECM to alerting me to this story. Notice how this story is not covered as well as the Matthew Sheppard story or the George Tiller story was. I wonder why. I guess some victims of violence are more equal than others.

Yeah, if the guy was a minister or Catholic priest, this would be the top story for the next 3 weeks, and multiple laws would be passed to see that it doesn’t happen again, but since it’s a gay university prof, well, nothing to see here.
In j-school, they taught us that the power of the media is not how they slant the news but what they tell you IS news.
Case in point.
I’m kind of surprised conservative media hasn’t hit on this very much. All I’ve seen is one Townhall column and a small mention from Malkin linking to two other blogs. Hotair didn’t even have anything on it. LaShawn Barber hasn’t said anything on it. You’d figure these outlets would be all over it, given the “you won’t hear this in the MSM” meme that’s seeping out of the story.
Disgusting!! That’s one reason India, which was so keen on repealing the law which deals with homosexuality last week, are retracting their stand. That particular law criminalizes all unnatural sexual acts including homosexuality, paedophilia, sex with animals. Now they say they have to protect men and children.
And the best thing is this:
“A decision on repealing the controversial section of the Penal Law which criminalizes homosexuality would be taken only after
considering concerns of all sections of society, including religious groups like the church, law minister Veerappa Moily said on Sunday.”
So only when you are a minority in a country, your religious sentiments are appreciated. Of course, if the country is a secular democracy.

I saw the news stories about the gay pride rally in Madras/Chennai.
