    Good point.
    Limbaugh calls it "the drive by" media.
    I wish this was true.
    But instead of reporting the story and then driving to the next story, they get out of their news vans
    and loiter around, interviewing any and all yayhoos and sending pundits to the scene.
    This may continue for weeks.
    At least CNN has something bright and shiny to focus on.
    I got pretty tired of their wall-to-wall coverage of the missing airliner.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    The press fails to objectively cover ANYTHING. The press is all about agenda, not about telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. You can't trust anything you see in the media.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Do I think the press is failing to cover this situation objectively?

    How could it be failing, considering all the various aspects of it people here know no matter their opinion on the subject?

    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.
    I'm very disappointed in CNN. It's like they are some kid wandering around the halls in school looking for someone to be their friend and every person they walk up to they act like they are so concerned about their problems and then change diametrically when they talk to the next kid.

    It's sad.
    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.

Lynch mobs aren't justice. The police officer that shot brown is innocent until PROVEN guilty. Don't these idiots realize it could be their neck in the noose?

    I voted yes because you didn't include an option for HELL yes!
    Amen... and Amen. Very good post (as usual).

    That's funny because you're right - there was a time that all we heard about was the airliner. Now they've moved on to this. I wonder what's next...and I wonder when they ever plan to go back to decent journalism & reporting?

    That isn't quite fair. Not all black people side with brown. My first partner (from work) and I were talking about it. Just like there are some white people that are racist some black people, Asian people and everybody else are racist.
    It's okay to be white
