Why are Bloggers and Comedians informing us more than the Mainstream Media about #Ferguson and Eric Garner?
The mainstream news coverage of Ferguson has been driven by a "balanced approach" that's so balanced -- the cop said this happened, some African-American eyewitnesses disagreed and contradicted each other -- so we can never learn anything about what really happened. This is embodied by a New York Times article that looks at the doubts of a grand jury, and emphasizes ambiguities and contradictions in eyewitness accounts. We can only ponder these unfortunate and puzzling mysteries, the article contends:If you want proof people have sided with #DarrenWilson based on incomplete information look no further than the comments following this article on al.com and this article too.
"In the meantime, it's worth looking to comics, bloggers and independent news sites to keep up on what's actually happening."
