Left-Wing Journalists Whine About Gabby Petito Coverage After Obsessing Over George Floyd For Months

Living under the new Black Lives Matter dictatorship apparently means that white women who go missing need to check their privilege.
Following some national media interest in the disappearance of 22-year-old Gabby Petito, some leftists in that same media (along with some guilty consciences) microwaved the “missing white woman syndrome” grievance, the complaint that white women and girls who inexplicably disappear are given outsize attention relative to similar cases with ethnic minorities.
…MSNBC’s Joy Reid said Monday, “Why not the same media attention when people of color go missing? Well, the answer actually has a name: Missing White Woman Syndrome.”
…It’s also true, though, that nothing was stopping the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC or any of the networks from covering missing-persons cases that involve minority victims. If it’s discriminatory not to cover them, we know who’s to blame.
