CNN is going to hurt themselves with all of these assumptions with the Michael Brown case. When did reporting become guessing, seeming, and reporting on rumors?  If this was journalism when I was in the business I would have been ashamed to call myself a reporter. The goal of CNN, Fox News, MSNBC or any other media company should be to cover any event, not feed the story. Truth should be what matters. At least that was what I was taught and my goal on every story I ever covered.

Mike brown seemed like a turd. But he at least dreamed of getting an education.

Pretty much every American news network sucks. No point in watching any of them.

Best way of going about it is watching BBCA News or just use the internet and just try to read the same news story on different websites and get as many facts as you can.

One does not simply throw towards Cameron Sutton.

I heard they may have to use a different prosecution because the guys uncle, brother, and dad were cops. The kicker his dad was killed on a call by a black man....  I guess we missed a good chance to loot some Posted Image.

Pretty sure it's mainly about ratings, and I have a feeling this type of "journalism" is only gonna get worse. With social media they can instantly see what gets people talking and which coverage causes the stories to trend.

Which facts or opinions are you referring to? The killing? Violation of freedom of speech and a initial peaceful assembly? Granted this young man was no saint and possibly should have handled the situation better. But let's not negate the fact that his killer was/is ill-equipped in every facet for a job of authority.

This whole thing will be as ugly as the last one like it. Right or wrong I'm just tired of the entire mess. I wish they would colonize mars a lot sooner. I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

Listening to the radio  all i could hear was  white this and black that  TONS of race bating.    Maybe you deserve to be shot when you steal and assault an officer.

Al Jazeera is better than all the others IMO
