Unbelievable: ‘Wash. Post’ Uses Photo of Sarah Palin to Illustrate Texas Bike Gang Shooting Story

In a perfect story of media bias, one that shows the hate the media has for conservatives, with the story of the massive melee of the Texas biker gangs still filling the news, The Washington Post thought it had the perfect photo to use to illustrate the story: a photo of Sarah Palin riding a motorcycle.

The Post story is titled “White bikers, black thugs: Why Texas looked to relax gun laws after biker shootout” and meant to discuss the Texas legislature’s move to ease its gun laws.

So, why this photo to illustrate the story…

Note that the Post conflates people who ride motorcycles with “biker gangs.” As if anyone who rides a bike must be a criminal biker.

In fact, the photo of Palin was taken when she visited the patriotic motorcycle rider event called Rolling Thunder back in 2012. This event had nothing at all to do with “biker gangs.”
