Krauthammer: “Special Report” Crushes Sharpton; “Americans Do Not Like Racial Hustlers”

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: If you want me to give you my opinion I will tell you that Americans do not like the racial hustlers, they don't like the exploitation of this situation. Yes, there is a lot of it in the media, but that doesn't mean the majority of Americans aren't appalled. Here is the central fact of this event: we do not know what happened on that day. We simply don't know. We don't know -- we haven't heard from the officer, we haven't seen witnesses on the stand who can be cross-examined. Everybody is jumping to conclusions and I would include, in that, the governor of the state of Missouri. Jay Nixon who said in a statement that he should be prosecuted. A vigorous prosecution must now be pursued. What is he implying here? That a prosecution has to be pursued? He must be saying a vigorous investigation must be pursued. To talk about a prosecution assumes without knowing the facts and assumes in a land where you have a presumption of innocence that there is a crime that has already been committed. This is not the way a governor ought to be speaking. BILL O'REILLY: But Carville and Beckel will tell you that African-Americans, maybe perhaps other minorities, because they have been treated shabbily by history and currently it's much harder as I have said to be a black American than a white American, they have a right to deny presumption of innocence. They have a a right to demand that the officer be convicted in the streets. I don't believe that and I don't think you believe it. KRAUTHAMMER: Look, we've got to make a distinction between that they can think what they want, anybody can in this country, and on the other hand whether they should impose that thinking on the officer or anybody else who they think is guilty here. Of course not. That's the reason we have a grand jury. The problem is that we have not only in that community, but you have in the media, a presumption of guilt on the part of this officer, long before the evidence has come in and that's what I think is deplorable. And there are people and I think you are absolutely right whose careers are founded on and flourish in the stoking of these prejudices, these presumptions, and these antagonisms and antithesis and that's how they thrive. But Ido not think the majority of Americans like that or appreciate it. O'REILLY: I hope you are right. I think you are right and I hope you are right. We just showed Jesse Jackson there. Now, Jackson has pulled back from this a little bit. I just want to point this out to everybody. Now, one of the bad things about this story is the reporting on it which has been one-sided and pandering reporting. And that's because the national media is terrified to go up against the grievance industry for the fear of being branded a racist by a charlatan or the other zealots. Okay? So, they are terrified. They have intimidated the media. KRAUTHAMMER: Well, how many in the media will remind you that Al Sharpton was the man in the Tawana Brawley story? O'REILLY: A lot of people will say that on the right. KRAUTHAMMER: Yeah, of course, but do you hear it in the media when he is portrayed as the great peacemaker here or the great orator or the man who gives the eulogy? Here is a man who participated in a blatant hoax, framed a white man for the the alleged rape of a young girl. Everybody knew, surely Sharpton knew this was a hoax from the beginning. He played it out for weeks. He went, he said sue me. He went to court. He was found guilty of this case. O'REILLY: And he had to pay. KRAUTHAMMER: He had to pay. He never did. O'REILLY: But what does it say when the National Broadcasting Corporation's news division gives that man his own program and pays him while he goes to Ferguson to incite whatever happens there? What does it say, Charles? KRAUTHAMMER: Well, it says that they have no idea how much Special Report crushes him. everyday at 6PM. The audience for that kind of demagoguery is rather of small. I don't know how smart of an economic decision it is but I will say it is rather appalling that a man -- and it isn't even NBC. This man was a presidential candidate. This man was treated as if he was at the level of other major Democratic leaders in presidential debates after the history he has had in the Brawley affair and in several others, one of which ended in the death of somebody in the fire in a store in Harlem.
