journalistic integrity has been gone for years.  now theyre only concerned with a 50/50 mix of making money at any cost and following the agenda of whatever it is their benefactors decide it is to be

To be fair, popular news sources have always been rather spotty to say the least. At least we have the internet now to tell us what's BS and what's not.

Indeed it has been gone for years. Not sure if your single-article reference backs your claim though. Let me refute your argument:

"describing the shooter as a 300-pound bald, black man wearing red clothing"

http://blogs.seattletimes.com/today/2014/05/man-charged-with-1st-degree-murder-in-federal-way-shooting/

"Before police arrived, three shots were fired by a black male wearing black pants and a white shirt with writing on it."

http://m.myhorrynews.com/news/crime/article_495c594a-e3f7-11e3-8aa1-0017a43b2370.html

Headline: "Not Just a 'White Guy Killer'"

"Does it matter that he was half-Asian? It means everything and it means nothing."

http://www.newrepublic.com/article/117922/elliot-rodger-race-isla-vista-shooter-was-not-just-white-guy-killer

"The gunman, who is described as a Hispanic man in his 20s wearing a red shirt and blue jeans"

http://m.wesh.com/news/teen-woman-shot-during-orange-county-home-invasion/26339690

All recent. Need more?

you can provide a handful of examples but its pointless...ive been keeping track for years through countless articles on how they identify whites in descriptions of suspects but neglect to mention anything about the suspect when it is a non-white.  ive been banned from a local newspapers comments section so many times ive lost count for pointing out this discrepancy in their reporting practices

it has been well documented the media is censoring non-white crimes

This, information isn't that hard to manipulate in the blogosphere. They don't even have to get it right the first time, they can just post some retraction or correction later

Well, yeah. That's why you don't look at just one source.

thats why there is the saying...there are 3 sides to every story...

the idea is you need to use your own common sense and ability for deductive reasoning to see who is lying and who is merely stretching the truth
