Not sure we'll ever know what happened...
Now it's a 60 yo friend who called police, no mention of manager or broken rib, V at home when first contact with police, not hospital. Media to blame for incorrect initial reports?

"Harrowing details emerged in the Jussie Smollett case on Monday, nearly a week after"


There don't seem to be any new details. Everything in there is just a re-hash of the general outline. Certainly nothing "chilling" or "harrowing" to the extent anything is "new" here.


My knee-jerk reaction was to just label this faux "new" "chilling" and "harrowing" report as typical YaHuffPo clickbait (seems HuffPo has almost entirely taken over Yahoo News), but it's actually from NBC News.

The issue seems to reflect racial divisions
Some black radio stations are talking about how it's dangerous to walk at night alone
While white people seem to be suspicious of the story and think the police wasted their time.

I think you're both correct, but it also reflects the sorry state of journalism. So the WaPo spends what-$5 million-to pat itself on the back with a super bowl ad, but nobody in journalism seems to care whether the facts were reported in this case. And that's a problem, as the initial reports hit all the hot buttons: Trump/race in America/gay rights/white supremacy etc etc etc-and that's how it was reported, with nobody bothering to even remain vaguely impartial. Right now, it's entirely unclear what happened, and this was last week's biggest story(until the gov of VA took the headlines), and it was reported by all the broadcast/cable news outlets, and even Trump was asked about it. There were Hollywood stars weeping on national television, and there were the usual suspects solemnly declaring what it symbolized in today's America.
The major news organizations-and the minor ones, too-owe it to everybody to report, good or bad, what the facts as known are and what the status of the investigation is. That's probably not going to happen. For some news organizations, it will be an editorial decision because it doesn't fit the narrative that was published last week(and further supported, unquestioningly, by the above article), and for others it will simply be too much effort.

Yeah, I heard a commercial on a black radio station that said, “If you see racism, report it.”

The media was really starting to run with this MAGA late night attacker racist hate. Never mind that it has been unspoken for decades why it is really dangerous to be alone at night in a city.

Blacks see this as white policing and a smear job.
Whites see it as someone lying here.
Either way watch for Jussie to be portrayed as the next O.J., out looking for the "real attackers".

He did the right thing and hired a criminal defense attorney (Michael Cohen’s defense attorney). Now let’s see if he is smart enough to do the next things (1) Stop making public statements; and (2) Don’t talk to the Chicago PD/FBI.
