In case you haven't heard, Ice Cube was cast in an unfair light by WBBM-TV, aka CBS in Chicago, when they reported that an area rapist looked like him. They then played one of his videos to drive the point home. Here's the story. My question is: How come this shit never happens to Stephen Hawking?

Probably because he's white, can't move very well, and doesn't make violent rap songs. But at any rate, this story is so wrong. I hope they end up apologizing all around. Disgraceful. I had no idea CBS was sinking so low.
