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

<p>After a segment on President Obama&rsquo;s attempts to push through gun control measures, <em>CBS Evening News </em>anchor Scott Pelley shifted gears to introducing a report from correspondent Jim Axelrod by bemoaning that church shooting<strong> &ldquo;of course comes at a time of increasing mistrust between blacks and whites.&rdquo;</strong></p>
