Flagging Racism

CourtroomCourtroom

Breitbart News reported today that the Associated Press reported that Dylan Storm Roof, the alleged murderer of nine people at Charleston’s Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church, has been found competent to stand trial and may be given the death penalty.

Breitbart explained that it had reported in 2015 that the Daily Beast reported that a manifesto had been found that was believed to be Dylan Roof’s. Rehashing much of the same material it had published in its report from over a year ago, Breitbart helped its readers understand the manifesto’s many highly anti-semitic and racist statements by directly quoting those statements word-for-word, which they also did in their similar article in 2015.

Breitbart also reported that USAToday reported that Roof faces 33 charges of mass murder, and that prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
