On Thursday’s network evening newscasts, CBS and NBC did their parts in touting the supposed state of race relations in America with CBS’s Scott Pelley holding up the deadly shooting in Charleston as “com[ing] at a time of increasing mistrust between blacks and whites” while NBC’s Harry Smith proclaimed that the “virus” of racism from the 1960s “never died.”

After a segment on President Obama’s attempts to push through gun control measures, CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley shifted gears to introducing a report from correspondent Jim Axelrod by bemoaning that church shooting “of course comes at a time of increasing mistrust between blacks and whites.”
