It’s a good question. Twitchy told you earlier today about Crystal Mangum being found guilty of second-degree murder in the 2011 stabbing death of her boyfriend, Reginald Daye. Mangum, of course, is better known as the woman who falsely accused members of the Duke lacrosse team of rape in 2006.

That story, which turned out to be fabricated, made headlines for months. Will Mangum’s murder conviction get the same treatment?

    How much media attention? None. There is no way to make up a racial angle here for the media, Sharpton or Jackson to use to cause problems.

    • ObamaFail

      No profit to be made for race-baiters and no chance of inciting race riots, so Sharpton and Jackson can’t be bothered.

  • Tugger – ✓unamused

    Well, you must be a racist….wait, look a unicorn. I suppose if we tell the media that this story will distract people from the obamacare meltdown they will crucify this evil murdering woman.

      I bet Nick Searcy is thinking “Welcome to the real world, brother.” We’d also like to welcome any other Hollywood types to the sane side!

  • me

    I would say no-especially considering I didn’t even know she’d stabbed her boyfriend and I’m an avid reader of the news.

    • Moto

      You’re reading the wrong news. Make an effort to support and follow “reactionary” just-bloggers. You will be amazed at what even high-profile counter-leftist outlets miss. Still no apology from her most ardent delusional supporter Manjaw Marcotte who continued to falsely accuse the Duke Lacrosse team and use anti-white hate speech against them after the charges were proven false,though .

    I’m sure Jesse Jackson will frown upon the whole situation.

  • JamesInStowOhio

    Was she ever prosecuted for her false testimony to the police?

        Really? Are you friggin kidding me?

          There is a great book on the whole case called “Until Proven Innocent”. It could really be sold in the horror section of the bookstore. What these 3 innocent kids had to go through would make your skin crawl. Thank god they had parents that believed in them,and great lawyers that exposed all the lies and corruption.

          • The Penguin, Don’t talk shit

            Thanks AC, I’m gonna pick up a copy. Probably going to end up pissing myself off to no end, but I’m curious to see what depths these corrupt lefty’s are capable of going to. Although It’s obvious they’ll go as low as necessary.

          • ked5

            not just the three on trial, the entire team suffered to some degree. the coach was fired.

    • Agent Carmichael

      I don’t think she was ever punished for that.

  • The Penguin, Don’t talk shit

    Nothing about this. Didn’t even know anything about it until I saw it here on Twitchy. But George Zimmerman gets a f*ckin’ parking ticket and it’s everywhere.

    • WhoDat

      “George Zimmerman, killer of Trayvon Martin, sneezed today, story at 10.”

      • JamesMc

        My gosh. Any fatalities?

        • WhoDat

          “That poor booger never stood a chance.”

    • aztectrumpet

      True. But i don’t think she deserves any attention. even negative attention.

  • Bklynnygirl

    Jesse Jackson was suppose to pay for her college education. I hope he wasted his money.

    • HerodiousPeaskinner

      Well, she graduated from NCCU so he didn’t get much for his money. She can use her police sociology degree counseling fellow inmates.

  • Republicanvet

    Any comment from Duke faculty?

    • Agent Carmichael

      The way Duke treated these students was an embarrassment. Not to mention the coach that got fired for no reason.

  • HanaFiveO

    Nope, the only place Ive seen is twitter.

  • Agent Carmichael

    Special place in hell for this woman. How many lives has she ruined at this point?

  • Maxx

    The number of meteorites flaming across the night skies of the United States in the month of November exceeded the number of times Al Sharpton brought up Crystal Mangum tonight.

    • WilliamAmos

      Sharpton was talking about 50 years of gun deaths since JFK tonight.

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    New York Joe can back me up on this or correct me if I’m wrong– the whole Duke lacrosse team case was for all intents and purposes a replay of the St John’s lacrosse team case of a few years earlier. With the same ultimate result, I might add, as far as the fact of the exoneration of most of the young men at St John’s (some had pleaded to lesser charges if I recall). One suspects Mike Nifong, the corrupt DA in the Duke case, figured he’d try it on for size and see if he could succeed where the DA in New York State had failed, and that would be in railroading white college boys in order to play up to a black electorate whose votes he needed for re-election.

    • Joe W.

      JoeMyAssNYC won’t comment unless the thread is about the gays, Sarah Palin or against ANY radical liberal “right”.

      • spaceycakes

        or religion or abortion…

  • Agent Carmichael

    I am sure the despicable Nancy Grace won’t have anything to say either.

  • jcam00

    What she was lying about the rape? First I heard of it.

    • HerodiousPeaskinner

      Where have you been?

      • jcam00

        It was sarcasm

    • Joe W.

      You must have been on the International Space Station these past 10 years or so then.

  • michael s

    She deserves the same amount of press that was given to his child rape case.

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      She deserves the same amount of press as the implosion of Obamacare does, but liberals just want the same amount of press that Benghazi got. “It was all a YouTube video! Move on!”

  • DavidKramer

    @RobLowe I read one article today, it took them til the last paragraph to even mention what she was famous for, then left it ambiguous.

  • HerodiousPeaskinner

    And the Duke faculty who took out a full page ad in the Durham newspaper condemning the LaCrosse players are still employed. Duke University president Richard Brodhead, who summarily fired the LaCrosse coach, still there.

    I lived in Durham during this debacle. The vitriol this lying prostitute caused cannot be aptly described.

  • Tre

    It’ll get even less coverage than those punks who shot that Aussie man in Duncan, OK because they were “bored”.

  • roccolore

    THe media won’t talk about it because they’re still defending the lying whore.

  • John Kerry’s Forehead

    Black on black or black in white crime isn’t newsworthy. See Detroit, Chicago, et al.

  • keyboard jockey

    I haven’t viewed any coverage of her murder conviction on cable news networks.

    I do remember the non stop coverage of the Duke Lacrosse players on cable news networks.

  • WisconsinPatriot

    Has the Journ-O-List society been consulted? Ezra…..Ezra, you out there?

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    “Will there be as much press about the woman just convicted of murder as there was when she falsely accused the Duke lacrosse team of rape?”

    Yeah, just as soon as Sharpton gets around to falsely accusing the Duke lacrosse team of framing Crystal Mangum. And the liberal lemmings will run with it because otherwise they’d have to talk about Obamacare.

  • spaceycakes

    if it was my sons, I would still OWN Duke.

    • therantinggeek

      How many of the faculty/staff would be replaced? Just curious.
