McKay Coppins of BuzzFeed suggested Wednesday that conservative media outlets were obsessed with allegedly anti-white crimes.

“It is everywhere,” he told The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur. “If you just spend a few days reading the conservative blogospere, watching Fox News or listening to Rush Limbaugh you will hear this idea of an slow burning race war going on in America, and the idea — which is an important part of the narrative — the mainstream media just won’t cover it.”

Coppins recently analyzed how conservative media reported on black-on-white violence in an article published on BuzzFeed.

“They think the liberal media is so biased that they have to over-report the opposite trend, almost regardless of whether it’s totally true, just to balance things out,” he said.
