I’m not discounting, I’m reserving judgment.
Would you ignore news about Global Warning from sites that are especially concerned about this topic?
As a matter of fact I would indeed be highly skeptical of news that seems to only be corroborated by agenda driven outlets, especially so when it’s a he-said-she-said and we’re only given the he-said. Time and time again groups of people so beholden to their ideology get worked up over some “news” that turns out in the end to have largely been puffed up.
The fact that most of the news media did not cover this story simply reflects that they don’t consider this “news”; nothing out of the ordinary - or nothing out of their ordinary. 100 years ago, would the mainstream media in a white supremacist area of the US have considered racist acts as “news”?
Or it could alternatively reflect the fact that all we have so far is a guy who was fired from his job claiming that it happened due to persecution and media that don’t have a dog in the “We’re the persecuted majority” race aren’t interested in this (yet). Let’s wait and see what the school says, shall we?
