The news media is often a good source for "news and official information". There is also the knowledge that you can not believe everything you see on television news reports or read in the newspapers. I would like to think that generally speaking, ethical reporting and truth in journalism is the norm. After viewing the video I am placing in a link for you to watch, I no longer believe that.
This video is a local newscast from Chicago concerning a shooting in the downtown area. The anchor introducing the video says"...this is disturbing" and later "...this is scary." The reporter at the scene interviewed bystanders including a 4 year old boy. First, why they thought a 4 year old should be interviewed about this awful crime, and why this child's parents gave their permission is perplexing. But the selective editing of this interview is incendiary. This should infuriate everyone. For the video please click on the link below.
