News 12 NJ reporter Sean Bergin unjustifiably suspended by station cowards for telling the truth about ‘young black men’ growing up without fathers
There’s absolutely no reason for this man to be suspended for telling the truth of what’s real in the ‘hood. If the truth hurts, then that’s too damn bad because sweeping it under the rug serves no purpose other than prolonging the problem!
A TV news reporter who blamed “anti-cop mentality” on “young black men growing up without fathers” in a shocking on-air report has reportedly been suspended according to the NY Daily News.
The comments made by News 12 reporter Sean Bergin followed Sunday’s tragic shooting death of New Jersey police officer, Melvin Santiago. The suspected cop killer was described as boasting that he was “going to be famous” moments after the killing.
“We were besieged, flooded with calls from police officers furious that we would give coverage to the life of a cop killer,” said Bergin at the start of his surprise editorial.
His retort to the outrage, however, was to blame it on the suspect’s race.
“The underlying cause for all of this, of course: young black men growing up without fathers. Unfortunately, no one in the news media has the courage to touch that subject,” he said.
The Blaze reported that Bergin has since been suspended over his comments. The station, which serves various areas mostly in New York and New Jersey, is now reportedly mulling whether or not he’ll be asked to come back.
