    Are you saying that the reporters thought it was awesome that they got arrested?

    Yes, the media ate it up. They practically stumbled over each other to portray themselves as victims of police aggression and paint themselves as courageous heroes. I bet they ran TOWARD the tear gas and made sure their cameraman were following.

I used to watch MSNBC in the morning and CNN most of rest of the day when I watched the news. I rarely, if ever, watched Fox. My view after watching both MSNBC and FNC pretty equally for the last two days???? Fox has covered both sides almost equally and MSNBC is out to get the cop hung from the nearest tree. So... I have, for the first time, started watching Fox. I still turn to CNN for international news, but for domestic news, Fox is the only one that in my opinion covers it objectively... so far. I may throw them under the bus and stop watching cable news all together if they go all far right on me.

    Now, for clarity, I am talking about the news shows, not the talking head pundits on FNC.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    How could they not objectively report on this as most of them were smack dab in the middle of it and they were reporting on what you could see with your own eyes. A stupid partisan thread.

    I think the major press is probably failing to objectively cover almost everything it reports on.

    We're now in a partisan news media era. It actually is kind of Fox's fault. Before Fox, liberal media had a monopoly on information. With Fox, people can see the bias in the msm. This resulted in a ratings war and the current environment we now have. Fox is the ratings king in cable news and the other outlets are fighting a war with them forcing them to be more partisan. It's Fox vs not-fox and CNN, MsNBC and the networks bend over backwards to be not Fox.

    If you are going to ask other people for their thoughts it is only fair game you answer your OWN question as well. Don't like being asked, tough ****. Nice dodge though but that is what you are good at.

    CNN is obsessed with this story, and the big, bad, evil, racist cops who run around the country.

    Fox has been multi-dimensional about the story, bringing in both sides, and also reporting on the hideous behavior of the looters.

    MSNBC has been a little in the middle, mostly tipping to the "bad cop" angle but with less obsession than CNN.

    At least you can turn on Fox or MSNBC and get news that doesn't involve this story.
