Ken @ Popehat sticks the Media in the eye

And does their job for them.

"I, an obese fuzzy-slippered blogger, was able to identify the prosecutor in ten minutes using PACER. Eight of those minutes were because I accidentally selected the Western District of Tennessee rather than the Western District of Texas the first time I searched. On PACER, I found the case, found the docket, found the trial transcript, found the list of prosecutors on the case, found the transcript of the day in question, and found the exchange in question:

Q (By Ausa Ponder) I didn't — you're telling
this to this jury.
A I understand.
Q You've got African-Americans, you've got Hispanics, you've
got a bag full of money. Does that tell you — a light bulb
doesn't go off in your head and say, This is a drug deal?
A No, sir.

That's Assistant United States Attorney Sam L. Ponder of the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of Texas in San Antonio suggesting that African-Americans plus Hispanics plus money means drugs."

After Ken posted the name of the Offensive and Offending Prosecutor, the media played catch up and ammended their coverage.
