Rush: Media Silent on Killing of Australian Student

Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh is accusing the media of being silent on the "fun" killing of Australian student Christopher Lane.

"It took them 24 hours to get to this, to discover it and to start reporting about it — and they are reporting it, and letting it go," Limbaugh said Wednesday on his radio show.

"There has been more outrage in the mainstream media, more attention paid in the mainstream media to that stupid clown story at the Missouri State Fair, than there has been to this wanton murder in Oklahoma," he said.

Australian student Christopher Lane was shot while jogging last Friday in Duncan, Okla. Two black teenagers and one white teenager were charged in connection with the incident. Police reported that one of the suspects said they were bored and shot Lane for the "fun of it."

Limbaugh compared the lack of reporting of the Oklahoma shooting to the expansive media coverage of the death of Trayvon Martin and the trial of George Zimmerman.

"They really don't want to get anywhere near this. And the reason they don't is because this is black-on-white crime. And that doesn't happen," Limbaugh said.

"There's nothing about this Oklahoma shooting that will allow the left or the Democrats to advance their political agenda. This harms their agenda. So that's why the media is not trumpeting it," he said.

"They're covering it, but just enough to let it go," Limbaugh said.

Donald Trump took to Twitter to address the lack of media coverage, tweeting: "Why isn't mainstream media all over this like Trayvon Martin story? Will there be justice for Chris Lane?"
