VIDEO: TV Journalists Defend, Excuse Five Nights of Riots
From the start, TV news media have done their darnedest to paint the riots happening across the country in a positive light.

Last Friday MSNBC’s Ali Velshi stood in front of a burning building and absurdly refused to describe the scene as “unruly.” That’s a descriptor more appropriately reserved for a hyper kindergarten class than for felonious arson — but evidently even that soft language was a bridge too far for Velshi: “I want to be clear in how I characterize this. This was, uh, mostly a protest. It is not, generally speaking, unruly. But fires have been started.”
The following evening, CNN’s Don Lemon deemed the riots a “mechanism” for “some sort of change.” The CNN Tonight host fumblingly argued that the kind of rioting unfolding on-screen was “how this country was started,” likening the destruction and looting to the Boston Tea Party…
This video shows multiple instances of people at CNN and MSNBC making excuses:
In this same fashion, CNN’s Chris Cuomo recently asked why protests need to be peaceful. Take a look:
