    Its all part of the media narrative. Predictable as they did the same thing with Trayvon Martin, as I pointed out. Especially by MsNBC. They're usually the ring leader of the clown circus.

    No, no. Blacks can't be racist because of history and stuff.

    You are not explaining yourself. Your answer here is somewhat circular / a bunch of jibberish. Please explain how is an article about a kid and his aspirations is somehow offensive to you.

    I didn't say it was offensive.

    Offensive meaning it offended your sensibilities in some manner or you would not have posted. You still are failing to explain what your problem is with the article. You just posted it and said the beatification begins. What do you mean? The article seems rather benign.

    To be fair they have always failed. Its the nature of it. There are a million decisions made crafting media coverage and every one of them are influenced by personal bias. The same camera angle can give very different impressions simply by how wide the frame or how narrow. And nothing is published without editing so there are at least two people involved both of which add their own bias.
    The media have always been unobjective and always will.


    Excuse me, but this was all live coverage...

    Re: Do you think the press is failing to objectively cover the situation in Ferguson,

    There was a time in which we only had a couple hours of news on tv a day. Now, we got 24 hours.

    So the news station got to fill all that time. So something like Ferguson or the missing Malaysian plane are an opportunity for news crew to fill up alot of air time. Plus,,,,we are all Rubber Neckers whether we admit it or not. We all flip on the channel to see if they were rioting again in Ferguson.

    And if it is a slow news day the reporters can make up the news. We all saw that on the video a few years back of a FOX news reporter waving her arms up to encourage a rallying crowd to be noisier for the cameras.

    No news, no problem , we can just make it up.
