Reporter Bergin blames fatherless blacks for cop killing, TV boss takes fire
Written by 

political-correctIt is not every day in our country that a reporter has the guts to tell the truth about what is happening in our inner cities. 


It happened on Sunday night when New Jersey reporter Sean Bergin of News 12 reported on the death of Jersey City police officer Melvin Santiago, who was killed responding to a call about an ongoing robbery. As he was sitting in a police car with another office, Santiago was shot in the head by Lawrence Campbell, an African American.   

Bergin was outraged at the outpouring of support for the cop killer and the lack of remorse from his widow, who incredibly wished for even more cops to be killed. There was even a makeshift street memorial established for Campbell which was supported by a number of Jersey City residents.   

Bergin stated that the news room was “besieged, flooded with calls from police officers furious that we would give media coverage to the wife of a cop killer. We decided to air it because it is important to shine a light on the anti-cop mentality that has so contaminated America’s inner cities.”   

At that point, Bergin opined that “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.” 

For this comment, Bergin was suspended and demoted to a once a week reporter making only $300. He was also told that he could only report on non controversial light topics in the Long Island area. 

While Bergin officially quit, he was effectively fired for expressing a controversial, politically incorrect opinion. However, similar comments have been made by actor Bill Cosby, activist Jesse Jackson and even President Obama. When those African American leaders made such comments, they were praised for having courage. In contrast, Bergin was practically fired. 

My expressing these hard truths, Bergin exposed the political correctness running through news rooms across the country. News Directors are willing to report on cop killings, but do not want to address underlying causes for it might upset too many people. 

As Bergin noted, there is a crisis in the African American community with 73% of children growing up in fatherless homes. He blames “stark raving liberals who masquerade as journalists” for their disinterest in exploring what happens to African American children who have no fatherly advice, no male role models at home and no discipline. 

It is clear that these are the type of children who get involved in street gangs, the drug culture and exhibit criminal behavior. This country desperately needs an honest discussion of this problem and the impact of a 50 year war on poverty that has been an utter failure and has helped to destroy the African American family unit. 

Congratulations to Sean Bergin for having the courage to engage in a politically incorrect discussion. Hopefully, some reputable news organization will be interested in a reporter who tells the truth and will offer this now unemployed man a job. Clearly, News 12 is a media outlet that only wants sanitized, politically correct news. On that station, the truth is not welcome.
