If you guys want to know how one powerful guy can influence multiple Academy voters, look up the antics of Harvey Weinstein.
Or just use some imagination and figure you do it the same ways you do anything of that order: cajole, bribe, trick, threaten, etc.
commented on The Morning News Brace Yourself for the Washington State/White House Collision, Brown Man Shot by Alleged White Racist Not a National Story
@4: What is also kind of funny about Mudede's bullshit point based off of an incorrect assumption, is that he is basically claiming that no one reports white on black murders because no one cares, yet (according to the FBI) in 2015, there were 500 killings of white people by an individual black person, yet I do not recall multiple national breaking news reports multiple times a day.
If anything the trend is likely the opposite due to the racial angle you can add to the reporting. Typical street violence is passé, and does not even get reported by anyone. The fact that the murder in Kansas is a national story is because of the race angle.
