There is a growing trend of newspapers across the country that are refusing to publish mugshot galleries because the pictures of minority criminals are supposedly reinforcing negative stereotypes.
The Tampa Bay Times announced on Monday that they would stop publishing mugshot galleries due to concerns that they “disproportionately show black and brown faces.”
“The galleries lack context and further negative stereotypes,” Tampa Bay Times executive editor Mark Katches said in a statement.
“We think the data is an important resource that our newsroom will continue to analyze and watch carefully, but the galleries alone serve little journalistic purpose,” he added.
They followed suit shortly after the Orlando Sentinel announced that they were making a similar decision.
“We’ve come to realize that without context, the galleries have little journalistic value and may have reinforced negative stereotypes,” the Sentinel wrote about the paper’s decision to censor their mugshot database.
In addition, all Gannett-owned papers have announced that they will no longer publish “mugshot galleries, or mugshot photos that are not associated with a story or other editorial content,” according to a Poynter report.
This is part of a broader campaign to suppress facts about crime from being known by the greater public. Big League Politics has reported about how tech corporations are censoring crime statistics from being shared on their platforms:
Instagram is banning federal crime statistics, which drive a stake through the heart of Black Lives Matter’s narrative regarding supposed racial disparities, from being shared on their platform…
The murder rate is incredibly skewed with whites being killed by blacks at a extremely disproportional rate.
In a survey conducted by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, they found that there were a stunning 593,598 instances of documented interracial violent incidents last year, counting black-on-white instances as well as white-on-black instances. The findings are absolutely stunning.
Blacks committed an incredible 537,204 instances of interracial violent attacks against white people, accounting for 90 percent of the violence. White people only committed 56,394 attacks against black people over the same time period. Considering how many more white people there are in the country than blacks, these numbers are staggering.
In addition, data from the Justice Department recorded from 2017 indicates that black people are over-represented when it comes to hate crimes as well while white people are under-represented by 24 percent…
The Silicon Valley titans are at war against the truth. They want the left-wing mob to loot, riot and destroy without the public ever understanding what’s really going on.
CNN’s Jeff Zucker Is Heard Spiking Hunter Biden Laptop Story in Latest Project Veritas #CNNTapes
The Hunter Biden story was off limits at CNN.
CNN President Jeff Zucker can be heard instructing the network’s personnel not to cover the bombshell Hunter Biden laptop story in leaked conference calls in October, ensuring that the network’s audience wouldn’t hear of the evidence documenting the corrupt foreign business dealings of Joe Biden’s son in Ukraine.
Wednesday’s release is the latest of Project Veritas’s #CNNTapes. James O’Keefe of the whistleblower organization confronted Zucker on CNN’s daily conference call on Tuesday, revealing to the corporate media operative that the medium had been compromised.
Zucker explains that the Hunter Biden laptop story belonged exclusively to the “rabbit hole” of Fox News, Breitbart, and the New York Post in leaked conference call audio from October 23rd.

CNN Vice President and political director David Chalian more openly places a lid on the bombshell story in the leaked conference call, glossing over the reports of Biden family corruption and stating it was “obvious” that CNN wouldn’t cover it.
“Obviously we’re not going with the New York Post story right now on Hunter Biden, which seems to be giving its marching orders to Fox News and the right wing echo chamber and what to talk about today…”
Another CNN Vice President, David Vigilante, questions why any corporate media reporters are retweeting the story at all, suggesting it should be completely and totally ignored.
“What in the world are Maggie Haberman and Jake Sherman doing retweeting that story?”
The Hunter Biden laptop story may be the most censored news report in American history, with Big Tech platforms such as Twitter and Facebook going to unprecedented lengths in order to purge mention of it from their platforms.
