You're a freak, and this is wrong

That's what Shepard Smith of Fox News shouted angrily while actually pounding on his desk after the Michael Jackson acquittal was announced.

It was not only childish, but revealing. The fact that Smith felt compelled to insert the petty insult, "You're a freak", into his rant indicated to me that part of his absolute certainty of Jackson's guilt was his revulsion at Jackson's appearance and manner. What really gets under Smith's skin is Jackson's culture, not his alleged crime.
