Following massive media attention (including here at NewsBusters) and widespread outrage, CNN political commentator Symone Sanders backtracked on Thursday night on whether transpired with the torturing of a white Chicago man this week constituted hate crime charges as she now accepts this view following the official filing of charges. 

When pressed by AC360 host Anderson Cooper, Sanders reversed course on the disturbing crime less than 24 hours after she told CNN Tonight host Don Lemon that the beating of a disabled white man at the hands of four African-Americans didn’t appear to be a hate crime.
