“It was just so in line with the history of colonization and appropriation,” said the director of the First Nations Education and Cultural Center at Indiana University. “This youth felt he had the right to be in that space, to be taking up this man’s space, to be in the space of this song and this honor.”
MEDIA MELTDOWN: Washington Post Blames Covington Student Fiasco on… TRUMP SUPPORTERS
Days after the mainstream media went on a full-fledged meltdown surrounding a group of Catholic High School students, the Washington Post found the true culprit behind the breathless coverage: ‘The Trump Internet.’
The Post explained their lop-sided coverage this week in an article titled, “A viral story spread. The mainstream media rushed to keep up. The Trump Internet pounced.”
“It took close to 48 hours for reporters, and a divided America, to fully grasp what had occurred, and to whom. At that point, President Trump weighed in with a tweet supportive of the Covington schoolboys, kicking the dust cloud up anew,” writes the Post.
“But when new details shifted the story into more ambiguous territory, a well-oiled machine of pro-Trump personalities and sites saw an opportunity to strike,” adds the authors.

Omar’s tweet seemingly ignored revised footage that showed the full context of an exchange between the students, a group of religious activists, and the Native American Tribal Leader.
