"Make no mistake, this is about coddling Fox’s white viewers; otherwise, someone, somewhere within the network might’ve pointed out the slight discrepancy between their commentators’ unquestioning trust of the Ferguson police and their coverage of the Cliven Bundy clusterfuck."

I feel like the fact that Jon Stewart, a political satire comedian, felt it necessary to devote his entire first show after a 2 week hiatus to talking about every point of the Ferguson issue, while the rest of the media (specifically Fox news) is still struggling to decide whether or not its an issue of race, shows a systematic failure in the way that people see and are educated on these kinds of issues.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

Jon Stewart on (Fox) News Coverage of Ferguson
158
"The war is on us, we are screaming peace while they are killing our children."
"You see, you being ignorant of [the media response to violence in Chicago] doesn’t mean the issue itself is being ignored, in the same way that when it snows where you live doesn’t mean the world isn’t getting hotter."

John Stewart, on Fox News’ outrage that the situation in Ferguson is being overblown while “journalists are not covering” violence in Chicago.

From The Daily Show:

Yes, what could explain the lack of outrage about Al Sharpton and his ilk not doing anything about black-on-black violence in Chicago?

…Because African American leaders did hold a summit about that in November. And have met at least three times in the city just in the last 13 months. Which is not to say it’s effective, but taken along with the President’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative, which attempts to address this violence, and the countless vigils and marches within these violence torn communities means they are trying actually to do something. 

You see, you being ignorant of those attempts doesn’t mean the issue itself is being ignored, in the same way that when it snows where you live doesn’t mean the world isn’t getting hotter.
