The crime problem that interests me and the media are issues regarding our presidency. The recent Charlottesville rally sparked great interest from both the media and people everywhere. This event was reported on various media outlets including newspapers, television, radio, and sites such as Facebook. More specifically, it was featured on both CNN and Fox news.
The reason this event has attracted so much interest from viewers and the media is because of the emotion it evokes. When white supremacists are being broadcasted on television, it often incites anger and emotion from the audience. Secondly, this rally also gave the public more insight to how Mr.Trump will respond when faced with racist, violent, and controversial incidents.
There is no better way to show this than by simply looking at the violent outbreaks and deaths of innocent individuals. With the coverage of the riots those on the outside see the importance to resist the hatred and violence of those who believe in White supremacy.
In my opinion, I find it very interesting that President Trump has such a social media presence, especially on Twitter, that it actually ended up hurting instead of helping his image. When he did not post all day during the Charlottesville rallies people were outraged. He tries to use social media to connect with the public and his supporters and people turned it around on him.
I agree, that when an event causes so much emotion, the media is there too pick up on it because that is what viewers want. With such emotion I think it is important that the media does report on it because it is important to the viewers to understand what is happening.
A crime issue that interests me was the peaceful protest turning into several fights in Berkeley. The rally in Berkeley had caught attention to people and some social media outlets due to the several fights and arrests. The riots was shown all over the news and social medias such as Twitter, Facebook, Los Angeles Times, and CNN.
The event had caught people and the media's attention because of the anger and hatred towards the white supremacists. Based on videos posted on social media, some groups in the rally were shown to be out of control and more aggressive which lead to some several arrests. By seeing these videos, it gives the public an inside of what happened in this event and the emotions the protestor feelings towards what they are protesting.
It just goes to show that peaceful protests are unlikely to remain that way for long when white supremacists are involved.
I think without the help of media and social media, the public would have a hard time understanding how serious and intense this situation really is.
I agree with this comment due to the fact that today everything is evolved around social media, and that is where everyone is getting their news from in today's society.
Social media and media help us understand what is going on in the society. Without them we would not see videos, pictures and much more for rally and other events
The counters protesters really had a lot of energy that went against white supremacy. The peaceful protest turned into an outrageous riot which conflicted with Berkeley law enforcement. Social media plays a big part in the way society views crime.
If I hadn't seen this on snapchat or twitter I feel as if I may not have even heard of what was going on. It’s sad to see how easy it is for protests to turn violent in this day and age. Our society isn’t what is used to be and people are finding it harder and harder to accept other people’s view points.
I find this interesting as well, because i have walked on peaceful protest for example the women's protest this year in Napa and then some people were angry. There was a man driving in his truck yelling women suck, trump signs all over. I realized it takes one person to get these people angry. he kept driving back and forth and then people started throwing things at his car and it became violent.
A crime that interests me would have to the be protests that happened recently in Berkley. The protests started out peaceful but quickly turned violent. Because of the mass amounts of violence that occurred, the protest caught alot of media attention. The riots can be found on vast amounts of social media such as snapchat, CNN, Facebook, and ABC news.
This event caught my attention because of the violent pictures and aggressive videos that were show on the news. By providing visual evidence of the event, I was able to see how intense and serious the riot was.
The media does a great job in showing us the ugly truth behind the scenes. The pictures and videos provoke our emotions to spike in a negative way as well as in a positive way. In one hand they show us that we must stand against racism, yet fighting fire with fire is never good. On the other hand these powerful images as well show us what we all desire to stray away from.
By having social media showing live videos of the protest, it gives the audience enough information of what is happening during this event. The videos gives us a better understanding of how a rally can turn from a peaceful to violent protesting for a short amount of time.
I agree and thought that event was interesting as well. Berkeley is known to be very liberal, especially near the university. I first found out about this protest through social media, then saw it being covered on local news stations on television.
One ongoing issue/crime that peaks my interest is the problem regarding racism and hatred that are seen in what now seems to be every aspect of our lives. The racism, hatred and violence that was lived in Charlottesville, shed light on a topic that many try to turn away from. The unsettling violence and even death against others who do not resemble or appear to be what others desire should never be accepted. Yet this was seen in the riots that took place in Charlottesville. Many who stepped into the event went with a set and clear mind...to make their voice heard even if it was not positive. Something which should of resulted in righteous protest regardless of the message turned into a commotion of death and despair. This was covered by many media outlets such as CNN, FOX NEWS, The Press Democrat, Univision, Snapchat and the list goes on.
What truly brought me to dive into this topic was the amount of coverage and outrage everyone around the incident had. Not only was Charlottesville seen as a devastating loss, it as well was seen as a cry for a change by those who lost their lives. The powerful images and videos presented by the media tugged on your emotions as it drove many to the extreme. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and U.S. Attorney Rick Mountcastle stated, "The violence and deaths in Charlottesville strike at the heart of American law and justice. When such actions arise from racial bigotry and hatred, they betray our core values and cannot be tolerated," Sessions said in a statement. "Justice will prevail". With such words and powerful images the public and those involved will be able to remember the importance of unity and the damage hatred can have on us.
I thought it was interesting how tolerant the police were of these "righteous protests" when other groups whole righteously protest are arrested and killed by police.
A crime problem that has mine and the media’s attention is the “peaceful” protest that happened in Berkeley this past weekend. On August 14th it was announced on the news and social media that there was going to be a white supremacy rally in Berkeley,CA on August 26th. Many people in Berkeley and around the rest of the Bay Area were not to thrilled to hear of this. On August 26th the “peaceful” protest became a violent riot among Trump supports and non Trump supports. Many social media groups like Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube had posted many violent videos during the riot. In the video's you see many non Trump supports pushing out the people who support Trump. All while doing this they were chanting, “No Trump, No KKK, NO Fascist USA”. Many of the protesters were trying to get there point across stating that they will not tolerate hatred in this country. Unfortunately, Many of the protesters took to violence to get their point across similar to what happened in Charlottesville. A reason why there was media attention during this event is because of the anger and violent behavior that was going on during the rally which lead to multiple arrest. Another reason why it got media attention is because many people feared for their safety when it was announced that a White Supremacy rally would take place in Berkeley. The people of Berkeley did not want another Charlottesville incident to happen in their home town.
It is always interesting to me to see how the different kinds of media report on these events. The conservative news outlets focus on the violence, while the liberal news outlets might mention the violence but focus mainly on the peaceful, celebratory participants.
One type of crime I have been keeping an eye on is Hate Crimes. It is always interesting to me to see how police determine if the crime that occurred is a Hate Crime. There have been times when it seemed obvious to me that the offense should be considered a Hate Crime but the police decide that it does not meet the requirements. However, some police departments can't even tell you what the requirements are for an offense to be considered a Hate Crime. The requirements always seem subjective and labeling an offense a Hate Crime seems to be something that nobody really wants to do. We cannot fool ourselves into thinking that Hate Crimes are not occurring. If the rallies in Charlottesville, Boston, San Francisco, Berkeley, and the many rallies being planned are any indication, than hate is alive and well in America and we cannot ignore it any longer.
I agree with you completely on this. I think that with the protests that have that has been happening recently it brought up our attention of racism and hate. It shouldn't be ignored.as I said with it being the news it will bring a lot of attention to it and hopefully we can get this problem resolved because it is a problem. There's people dying because of what's going on and I think violence is going to continue unless we somehow get the problem resolved. We don't have such a big problem from where we used to be with slavery but obviously it's still an issue that should be addressed.
I agree with you Jamie it's interesting how police determine whether or not a crime might be a hate crime. The fact that there is no set definition for what a hate crime is makes it difficult for law enforcement to determine whether or not a crime is in fact a hate crime, so maybe in the future there will be a set definition for what a hate crime is because right now it tends to vary from one agency of law enforcement to another.
One issue that is present in the media that has caught my attention is the Charlottesville protests and white supremacy rallies. It also ties in with how our President uses media to address such issues, and it goes to show how media coverage can affect people everywhere. I have been hearing about white supremacy rallies all across the country that have been breaking out.
This is something that catches the medias attention because of the emotional response that so many people feel towards this topic. So many people have ties to what happened in Germany during World War II that a topic like Nazis and white supremacists is bound to catch the attention of the media.
A crime issue that has caught my attention as well the media's is the recent pardon of Joe Arpaio. The former law enforcement officer was found guilty of racial profiling practices and illegally detaining people of Latino descent without probable cause. When asked to stop these practices Arpaio refused and was found guilty of criminal contempt as of last month for disregarding a court order in a case involving racial-profiling.
Amidst the growing tensions between protestors its not reassuring to see that the President has pardoned someone who is widely known by his community and peers as someone who openly targets the Latino community. A reason why this got media attention is because the whole country is watching the Mr. Trump since the beginning of his presidency and as of late the only way to be updated is through media sources like CNN, Fox, Univision, Snapchat, Facebook, and other media outlets. Another reason why this got media attention is due to the recent events and tragedies that have occurred during the last couple of weeks. The people of Charlottesville and Berkeley have witnessed the horrific side of racism, hatred, and how divided this country really is. The presidents actions go against his words of unity and does not reassure the people of a better future.
It is easy to see that President Trump had an agenda when he pardoned former Sheriff Arpaio, though it was not surprising. The issue I have is that someone who is elected to uphold the law shows a blatant disregard for peoples rights. More importantly, the people he is supposed to be serving.
A crime issue that has mine and the media attention is the protest that happened in Charlottesville. The protest in Charlottesville had caught so many attention because of fights, arrest and the death of Heather Heyer. This event was shown all over the news, social media, blogs and newspaper. The reason why this event got so much attention because the anger and hate towards the white supremacists groups. The white supremacists were being shown on television, and the audience were frustrated and angry that they were being broadcasted. Also, the death of Heather Heyer was brought to attention to the world because she was killed by a man who was against Heather Heyer and the people values and beliefs. This event in Charlottesville gave the public more information about how we can faced with racist, violent, and hate groups.
The crime problem that grabs my attention is murder. It's also a topic of interest for the media as well because for one reason it makes for a good story that will bring up the news outlet's ratings. I would have to say that this crime problem is displayed on all outlets, for example, CNN, KRON 4, and FOX. Another reason why murder has the media's attention would be because since the media is so consolidated into very few corporations these corporations might want to draw the viewers attention way from corporate crimes by displaying that there is "more street crime" such as murder occurring.
You bring up a good point about using murder to draw away attention from corporate crimes. I never really thought about it, but it makes a lot of sense. If you draw attention elsewhere, it's a lot easier to get away with other things. I also agree when you say it makes for a good story; it's one of those things that people will want to know about and draws attention.
You bring good points about the Corporations that own the media. Theyare interested in rating that translates in money. Sometimes Corporations have a way to miss informed the public about the real street crimes.
The crime problem that has media attention, in my opinion, would have to do with hate crimes. This would include the riots that have been happening in Charlottesville or even here in California. It has been seen on television as well as on the Internet sites like facebook. There are also other stores that have occurred because of riots that have been happening.
The reason why I believe that this has the media's attention is because of how sensitive the topic is. Racism is an issue that some may have believed to have not existed so much. This shows that there are some who still believe that one race is better than the other. Since we may not have had such an outburst of racism in a while it may be shocking. To even know that this is happening is shocking and a way to make the problem known so it doesn't continue is to get more people informed. If it's on the news or on Facebook more people will hopefully step up to say that it should not continue.
I agree, there are some people who may not have experienced racism first hand but it does exist and still very present. Talking about it and being open about the reality of racism may perhaps provide a step forward towards mending the division it has created.
The protests at UC Berkley this week is something that caught my attention. I watched a news video on CNN and I believe it was an infotainment type of media reporting. It was meant for entertaining but also had news worthy information but the information that was given was in somewhat of a biased manner, and not giving all the information. I believe this has grabbed the medias attention because of the recent election and the conflicts between the conservatives and liberals. Media can be a great tool to get information out but the media is also very powerful in skewing or not giving all the information it should to the public. By watching the video it seemed as though it was disgracing the liberal party for the damages they caused and their reaction to Milo, the speaker. My sister went to the protests and a lot of what was reported in the CNN video was not all true. The speaker was not canceled to begin with but they decided to move the time and place he was speaking at to reduce the amount of backlash. I believe the news is too biased and the media needs to be neutral, giving all the facts and let the people decide. I believe that is what the media was intended for but has throughout time drifted away from that idea.
It is very unsettling to know that any news source that you may try to receive information from may not be telling the full truth or may be skewing things that have happened, because their main purpose is to make the viewers view the events in the way that they want you to.
A crime issue that interests me is the “peaceful” protest that took place in Berkeley a few days ago. This peaceful protest turned violent very quickly. This incident has my attention for two reasons, the first being because my hometown is right outside of Berkeley. It also has my attention because of how violent it got. I have seen videos of people stomping on other people’s faces during the protest.
I believe that this caught the media’s attention so quickly because all of the other protests/riots going on turned violent so quickly, so I’m sure the media knew that something violent was bound to happen in Berkeley as well. There were a lot of arrests made prior to the protest, which caught the media’s attention as well.
It seems as if all news stations and social media platforms broadcasted this protest/riot, but I initially saw reactions to the protest on media outlets such as Twitter, CNN, and Fox News.
A crime issue that interests me and the media would be mass shootings. They are a really tragic and heartbreaking event, but personally I'm always intrigued as to why someone decided to to follow through with it, where they did it, etc. More of the finer details as to how and why someone felt like this was an option. I think the media finds interest because it is a tragic event that affects a lot of people and evokes a lot of emotion.
It's also interesting on how the media covers them. Sometimes it's all over, being covered by everyone, but like the one in Clovis yesterday, a classmate said the news covered it for a very brief amount of time today, and some outlets aren't talking about it much.
Mass shootings, especially those taking place at school instantly grabs media's attention. These tragic shootings bring in viewers and have an emotional outpour. Although it is tragic to hear these news stories, as a nation we lean on our neighbors, family and friends to get through these tragedies together.
A crime problem that has recently been recurring and reported by media platforms is hate crime. The hate crime that has been reported by Huffington Post and televison programs such as MTV is the transgender ban in military branches.
The first reason why it has media's attention is because our Commander-in-Chief is discriminating against a group pf people. In the Equal Protection Clause under our Fourteenth Amendment in the Constitution states that , " no state shall enforce any law that shall abridge the privileges and immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty and property." President Trump believes that banning transgender individuals from military branches will relieve burden on financial medical costs. But if people are willingly able to risk their lives to protect and serve our country and our rights, why should we stop them?Another reason why it has media attention is because we are suppose to be in a progressive era where individuals should not be fighting for their guaranteed rights. Instead of moving forward towards the future, we are going backwards.
I agree with Noaneli's view on the ban of Transgender individuals who are in service. Our president should think twice about his decisions before he carries then out. LQBTQ people have been discriminated in our country long enough, it is time that we accept people for who they are and let them serve in the armed forces regardless of their sexual preferences.
The protest that have been happening at UC Berkley and the way it is being covered has drawn my interest. I have seen how Fox news and CNN have represented the events. I believe both are biased and are infotainment. They both can be seen as objective and both provide entertainment along with news. I believe the media needs to create some sort of show/news network that provides information on current events in a non biased way. Allowing americans to form there own ideas about current events.
I chose to evaluate Jimmy Kimmel's late night show, where he talks about the protests that happened in Charlotte, North Carolina. He also talked about what President Trump had to say about the protests. This is representing a form of infotainment because he gave news about what was happening around the world but he was entertaining the audience with jokes. My concerns are that he is bias on what he was saying and he only showed clips of what he wanted the audience to see. There is objective and realistic reporting because he is not making this up and has videos and facts to back up his reporting.
I agree with Juan's evaluation regarding this television show because although Jimmy Kimmel is providing information about the incidents, they are given in an entertaining way. My concerns would be the same as to if he is bias because he is on a comedic talk show.
A specific type of crime that has recently peaked my interest is crime regarding professional athletes, as well as the punishment that specific athletes receive vs. others, and the media's perception of such. In general, professional athletes are often put on a pedestal, and crimes that may not gain large media attention for common-folk, like battery or DUI's are covered extensively in media outlets like ESPN, Washington Post Fox Sports, and Business Insider.
For example, in recent news, Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot was suspended 6 games by the NFL for an alleged domestic violence, in which, no criminal charges were filled against him. This story has been all over sports and general media the past couple weeks. In comparison to Elliot's NFL counterpart, Tom Brady, who, in federal court was found guilty of cheating to win championship game, and was still allowed to finish his NFL season, I wonder the motives and politics involved in the leaders behind the scenes of sports. This interests me because I feel that public perception plays a large role in the way professional athletes are disciplined.
I never really thought about sports and crime before. You make a great point about how athletes are seen as these heroes and that their actions have no consequences. This is something that we as a society need to look at as well. Why do we feel like they are on this pedestal? And why do we tend to defend them?
An issue that has high interest in my opinion, are hate crimes including the influence on riots or protests. A couple of the reasons why these riots have my attention are strongly because they are so close to where we live/get our education, talking about the Berkley incidents that have recently occurred. These type of protests have a lot of interests, especially as one in college becomes more educated on the topics of the protests, as they develop there strong beliefs/opinions on them, which therefore leads to mass discussion on social media sites. Such protests also catch my attention because you see how people come together for what they believe in, although it is sad when these situations result in violence.
I believe most of 'entertainment' news, are based off of the violence that occurs with hate crimes. A major outlet that shows this type of news is Snapchat. I saw several videos on this social media outlet which were posted from people my age of others getting violent/yelling, and simply because its interesting to watch, where objectivity is not important. So many people will watch videos that are unrealistic or bias, and I believe that is why media will always have their attention on these situations.
The crime issue that interests the media and me is the case Commonwealth v. Carter. This specific case has blown up the media for the last couple of months because a teenage girl , Michelle Carter, sent her boyfriend text messages encouraging him to commit suicide. One reason this case has interested me and so many media outlets like CNN, Daily Mail, CBS, ABC News, and even social media like Snapchat is because this was not any typical manslaughter case. This case was based on whether or not someone could be convicted of manslaughter with the use of words alone. The second reason is because suicide is a growing epidemic in the US. Hearing about any suicide is very saddening, but it is even worse when you hear about someone encouraging this act. Usually, a person’s loved ones are the people who can stop them from committing suicide if they are aware of this thought going through someone’s head. I have never heard of any other story on the news or in my community of anyone encouraging this act. It is not only devastating to me and the country, but all all those family members who have lost someone to suicide. We all know about suicide, but a case like this being shown on the media really puts into perspective what people are capable of and how someone can step in and help someone in need.
A topic that peaks my interest is illegal drug use in the US, more specifically the use of methamphetamine and heroin. The media tends to present the topic in an "Infotainment" fashion, though we get the occasional documentary around the dangers and side effects of drug use.
The reason this topic catches my attention would be due to the prevalence in our community, whether we are aware of it or not. Also, due to the fact that a majority of people dabble with opiates as a result of prescription drug addiction.
An issue I have with the way that the media presents this topic is the subjectivity. This is a topic that usually has a lot of political factors weighing in on the way that it is reported. The war on drugs is a major factor on the public’s view regarding illegal drug use, and I believe it is difficult to find this topic on the news without media sources adding their own views/opinions. I would like to see media sources present this topic in more of an educational format, rather than aiming at entertainment.
I agree with your writing. Politicians always tend to include their opinion on drugs and state what they want to do to stop them but there is never a true result to the fight on drugs.
An issue within the borders of crime that has gained my interest has been all the various rallies countrywide that have been going on. What is most concerning to me is the news and entertainment that these various rallies have created. My lifestyle requires a lot of commuting so I am constantly on the road and after Charlottesville took place, I was amazed at what various Bay Area radio station morning crews were saying. Their information was slanted and their broadcasts were knocking down a whole political party and the president instead of acknowledging that not everybody on the right hand took part of a horrific event.
As a follow up, when it was announced that there was going to be rallies in Berkeley and San Fransisco, it had been reported by 99.7Now that the dog owners weren’t picking up after their dogs used the bathroom in the place were the protest was going to take place. The radio host even said on air “if you have a dog, go to there and let your dog do its business and don't pick it up”. It seemed to me that what he was saying was pure infotainment. When you live in the Bay, this kind of talk is anticipated and although it was entertaining, it was personally too early for me to listen to a guy on air with such low ideas.
The type of crime problem that interests me has been the rallies that have taken place in a different parts of the US. Things have taken a turn where activists and their followers have decided the violence between races and those that are meant to protect us needs to come to an end. When I was younger I grew up with a babysitter who had attended many rallies and riots to stop the violence that was happening in her time. She has made many friends through the years and till this day can still tell me stories about what it was like to stand up for the rights of others. Now as I see it happening on the TV I worry about how violence may break out extensively and all the terrible acts that were once committed may happen again. It is in the political time that we live in that has caused much of this violence. People do not march through the streets just to do it, they do it to prove a point and prove to others they will not stop until the wrongs are made into rights.
I don't thing the television news channels have shared enough new with its viewers, but I do see that social media has taken it upon itself to show the viewers what is missing and what parts of the story were cut out. Although social media was made for our entertainment it has become a place where we can receive unfiltered news.
The crime problem that interests me and the media is the Presidential pardon of former Maricopa County Joe Arpagio. This pardon attracts the interest of the media and the people, especially the Latino community nationwide. This event was reported by different media outles: CNN, NBC, Telemundo, Univision, radio, newspapers, and Facebook.
The reason this event has attracted the attention from viewers and the media is because of the continuous attacks (profiling and incarcerating) of Mr. Arpagio against the Latino community during his career as a Sheriff. This former Sheriff incites anger and distruss in the Latino community towards the law enforcement. In addition, the President Trump bring more division than unity to this already divided nation by pardoning Mr. Arpagio.
I learned about this yesterday in one of my other classes and we talked about it yet again today. i was confused about the whole concept of pardoning but to come to find out its a wiping away of the case that was brought against the person going to trial. i believe their will be nothing on his record for this crime. I think that the Latino community should be outraged of this decision and i couldn't believe it myself. That because Arpagio and the president share the same ideas and views of Latinos, that it was a business transaction to keep him out of jail/prison. i bet the thought of being in prison with the people he had been profiling and incarcerating for the past years had really started to sink in.
The crimes that are of interest to me are the ones that deal with racism. I cannot believe this is still a problem in today’s society, it feels as if we are going back in time to the 60’s. It is also of interest to me what other people are thinking and if they have the same views as I do. There have been many incidents like the one recently in Charlottesville where there is racism and hatred. Charleston is another example of hate crime and the media was printing, showing and posting all about what happened. Crimes that deal with racism is of interest to the media, because it is news that gets people’s attention and they want to know more. They would rather report on this crime then a car being stolen because it is not as entertaining for their viewers. They can exaggerate the story and be biased towards the side that they think the people who are watching are on.
Crime in the media that interests me is assaults or crimes harming other people.It seems that every time i turn on the tv someone has been a victim of some kind of assault. Whether it be random muggings or fights at protests. Violence against another person is becoming more and more present in our media. It interests me because it shows that society is becoming more physical and that in situations people allow others to get the best of them and act upon their feelings of rage that has been invoked. It also brings an ever present thought to my mind that i may be a victim of assault because of being in a crowd at a rally or alone running at night. Either one is quite possible and happens. It also shows the generations growing up that being physical with another person is ok, sure their are consequences that come of it but from a child's point of view they don't understand that.
The crime that interest me is the riots that have been going on in charlottesville because its crazy how people are treating eachother, i get it but i think we could be more mature about this. Those statues are gross yes but they are history and thats why we need to keep them around so that we dont go back to what we once were.
The News source that I used was www.cnn.com. When I look up news, I usually tend to do it online because of how easily accessible it is. The article I read about was how Donald Trump granted former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio pardon on his case for racial profiling and arresting individuals for the reason that they may be undocumented.
When choosing to see if this report was news, infotainment, or entertainment, I evaluated the writing style and technique as News. The writer was very straightforward in their reporting, giving only facts that they had found in their research. The author also did not state any personal thoughts or commentary about the subject matter. If this were so, the article would be classified as infotainment. The journalist was objective and realistic, illustrating through their writing, that their main goal was to provide information for the public. The only entertainment available was a video clip option presented for visual affect.
A crime problem that interests me is recently what has been happening in the media when it comes to race. All over the states, there has been images, videos, and articles written about white supremacy groups protesting, which later on turn violent. Something that I have noticed when it comes to these groups, is that they are protesting in places where they are not wanted in order to receive a reaction, ending in violence. I find it most interesting when looking these up through social media such as twitter. On twitter, individuals post about their thoughts and feelings. What is also really great is that not only is one person able to express their thoughts, but others can respond as well with their commentary. People also have the opportunity to like or retweet others to show their support.
There were 57 posts, most about protests and Charolettsville, VA, and Berkeley and violence that had media attention. Some discussed media biased reporting on athletes, problems with the Apaio Presidential pardon, and the way law enforcement interacts with "the public."
I am impressed that each post showed awareness of the kinds of events getting media attention--i.e. crowds (mobs), aggressive and violent acts. Clearly corporate profit-motive is an influence on the media. Thank you all for posting!
