that's silly. we were all inundated with 24/7 tv coverage for an eternity. its like asking for citation that the clear daytime sky was blue this last lifetime.

msnbc showed crowds of people marching with signs, fox showed crowds of people burning and looting.
both were actually happening.
each side just had a take to sell us, and only showed one aspect.
neither left nor right are trustworthy, but this time around the left's sanitizing of destruction was worse than the right's villification of protesters.

-scheherazade

You said they ignored the looting as evidence that they glorified it?

C'mon. You don't glorify things by ignoring them

the fighting for justice rhetoric was the glorification.

burning/looting uninvolved people's property is injustice, so that had to be ignored to sell the rhetoric.

ultimately, none of it had anything to do with any case at hand. it was just acting out for the feels

if they had lynched the dirty cops, or looted/burned their houses, i would have understood that as something at least in the rough realm of justice.

-scheherazade

Yes, what you're saying is exactly what the media you complain about said - that the riots weren't connected to the case at hand.
The protests were connected. That was fighting for justice. That was separate from the riots. In NYC, they were not in the same places. It was opportunistic. This is exactly what you said.

You're "both sidesing" this while repeating what one side said, which is weird. Contrarian centrists...

Of course "the media [i] complain about" disavowed any connection between protesters and rioters - regardless of connection.

NYC is not everywhere.

Most places it was one inseparable mess. That's why it went unstopped, for fear of looking like a protest crackdown and turning into a 1st amendment case for local pd and more 'police violence' coverage that brings even more protests.
people were just left undefended from mobs, with cops just parked watching shit go down.




"You're "both sidesing" this while repeating what one side said, which is weird. Contrarian centrists... "

Because one side did worse. They played the coverup game.

Everyone here would be shouting from the rooftops about injustice if it was their property burning with no police intervention and no recourse.
And everyone here would have been holding up arms to keep looters and rioters away from them and their homes, or yelling at the cops to do it for them.
Yet one side is happy to forget about it.

Yea right, according to Fox, it's ok to open carry a fully kitted out assualt rifle with grenade launcher and god forbid the gummint tries to take it away, while carrying the same gun in a game is the root of all evil.

Let them keep thier guns, just make the mandatory punishment for any crime committed while armed be public stoning.

Something has to be done so yeah, you can say what you want, but if what you say causes people to be harmed/injured/killed, that person is then held accountable.

5 months into the new year and Buffalo was the 201st mass shooting in the US this year. At least 1 mass shooting occurs in the US every single day. It's so common now most of them don't even make the news, certainly nothing beyond local. That's insane.

Japan has violent videogames, do they have mass shootings? Hmm, it's almost as if guns do kill people. Also, the culture there is different, don't raise people to be so disrespectful and filled with hate.

The speaker is right that maybe we as a society weren't ready for online communications. Then again that points to the word communications, which start at the home environment. Sure the shooters weren't getting much love or guidance there either. They must atone and receive justice.

As for Fox News... what hasn't been said about them. Will they even be around in 30 years? I hope the Gen-Xers/Millienials tune out, or work to pull advertising from the network.

There won't be one. The far right loves saying this, but can't actually produce anyone glorifying it.

Also, they tend to do something I am happy theglaze did not, and whine about the "MSM" while ignoring that the two largest TV media companies are far, far right.
