Jesse Jackson to Stand Trial

MSM bias is displayed far more by what is not covered as by what is. Most everyone knows Tom Delay was indicted, despite the fact that it took at least 8 grand juries to do it. This case is receiving no attention, yet is just as important. You tell me what the difference is:

(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes corruption, today announced that on January 17, 2006, Jesse Lee Peterson, et al., v. Jesse Jackson, et al. (BC 266505) will go to trial in Los Angeles County Superior Court after a ruling last week by Judge George H. Wu. Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit against Jackson, his son Jonathan, and
others on behalf of Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, who was the victim of a physical
and verbal assault at an event hosted by Jackson’s Rainbow/PUSH Coalition and
Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. in December 2001. Rev. Peterson is an
ordained minister, who has dedicated his life to working with underprivileged
black youth and men in our society.

The Jacksons and the
Rainbow/PUSH coalition, who had sought to have the case dismissed, will now face multiple civil charges, including: Assault, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress and a California Civil Rights Claim. Jonathan Jackson also will face the additional charges of Battery and False Imprisonment.

Any surprise that this story has received almost no coverage? While the Delay story was wall to wall, and left most viewers with the impression that Mr. Delay now has two indictments against him. The truth that 'Ole Ronnie screwed up the first one, and then had to go before two grand juries before he could get the money laundering charge to stick remains limited to FoxNews and the blogosphere. Hmmmm.
