Michelle Malkin on the “Jena Six” yesterday:
I’ve had a few irate liberal readers asking why I haven’t written about the Jena Six. For one thing, the MSM is covering it wall to wall. I like to cover stories that aren’t getting coverage. The Jena Six case is everywhere. CNN has special reports up the wazoo. MTV is all over it. Just Google it.
“I like to cover stories that aren’t getting coverage.”
Yeah, like the Duke lacrosse players case. Because we all know that story got absolutely NO coverage in the evil Em-Ess-Em. She’s so full of crap.
UPDATE: White Supremacist Web site allegedly publishes addresses and phone numbers of Jena Six and “essentially calls for their lynching”.

FBI Probes Anti-Jena 6 Web Page
By BECKY BOHRER – 1 hour ago
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The FBI is reviewing a white supremacist Web site that purports to list the addresses of five of the six black teenagers accused of beating a white student in Jena and “essentially called for their lynching,” an agency spokeswoman said Saturday.
Sheila Thorne, an agent in the FBI’s New Orleans office, said authorities were reviewing whether the site breaks any federal laws. She said the FBI had “gathered intelligence on the matter,” but declined to further explain how the agency got involved.
CNN first reported Friday about the Web site, which features a swastika, frequent use of racial slurs, a mailing address in Roanoke, Va., and phone numbers purportedly for some of the teens’ families “in case anyone wants to deliver justice.” That page is dated Thursday.
The Rev. Al Sharpton said in a statement Saturday that some of the families have received “almost around the clock calls of threats and harassment,” and called on Gov. Kathleen Blanco to intervene.
A Blanco spokeswoman said the governor had asked law enforcement — primarily state police — to investigate.
“These people need more than an investigation. They need protection,” the Rev. Jesse Jackson said. He said his organization would be in touch with President Bush’s nominee for attorney general, Michael Mukasey.
“This is a test for the disposition of the Department of Justice to serve as an intervenor and a deterrent” to hate crimes and discrimination, Jackson said. He said federal marshals should protect the families.
