Why I hate Conor Friedersdorf, Part LXVIII

In the course of their attacks, Conor Friedersdorf and Andrew Sullivan (and Megan McArdle and Jeffrey Goldberg, for that matter) can't be bothered to link to Dudge's and Limbaugh's reporting on the beating of a white student on a Belleville West High School bus in Belleville, IL. So I guess pettiness is the order of the day.

But here is what's particularly galling. Friedersdorf and Sullivan quote Rod Dreher approvingly:

Look, I think it's important to talk about black male violence, or at least as important as it is to talk about any other important social trend. I don't think we should be squeamish about discussing it in a responsible and fair-minded way, despite what the politically correct say.

I'm pretty sure I've seen Dreher willing to discuss black violence, although I doubt it was particularly illuminating. But when have Friedersdorf and Sullivan discussed black violence?

Friedersdorf is way to deferent to the PC police. He has, for example, said some pretty dumb things about Roissy too. I keep losing respect for the guy.
