Rewriting the News
i am not a fan of the mainstream media news (MSM). While they try to be thought-provoking, they are deeply invested in the status quo, including the militaristic tendencies of the US and endlessly talking about China’s nuclear program, while basically ignoring its larger renewables effort. But while i get agitated about the MSM twisted focus on the news, i have a special enmity for Fox News and its penchant for creating news that fits its bias.
Fox mis-covered the longstanding non-violent protest in Baltimore demanding information and justice in the case of an unarmed local man who the police killed in this way:
Fox clipped the chant and misreported it as “We can’t stop! We won’t stop! So kill a cop!” and then used it as an indication of a change in sentiment that lead to police being murdered in NYC. See:
If you can’t view these videos, you should know the actual chant was “We can’t stop! We won’t stop! Till killer cops are in cell blocks!”
Fox would go on to apologize for it’s “honest mistake,” bringing Tyrone West, who is leading the chant and the sister of the man killed by police, on the News show and allowing her to speak. Something makes me think Fox has not learned it’s lesson.
