Ferguson: Media Has A New Obsession

Most credible news organizations have just about exhausted all avenues of the Clinton e-mail scandal……..they have been pushing the bounds of good reporting to stay on the trail of the story……but now they can let out a sigh of relief and fixate once again…..

Two officers were shot in front of the Ferguson Police Department shortly after midnight as protesters gathered following the resignation of the city’s embattled police chief, a spokesman for the county police department says. Their conditions are unknown and no further details are immediately available, the spokesman says. The shots were fired as what had earlier been a crowd of about 150 people had begun to dwindle, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Some protesters fell to the ground and others ran. A huge police presence, including officers in riot gear, later surrounded the department.

I could turn this into a 2000 word diatribe but……why?

This is all the info that is available at this time……

Today will be a very lean day…I have a family member going under the knife and I will be at the hospital most of the day……sorry to cut it short today….I will be back tomorrow if all goes well….

With the decisions in Ferguson and NYC and the death of a 12 year old in Cleveland…..people are taking to the street…..they are protesting the deaths but few have offered up any solution.

This is another piece I wrote for Ace News Room 2014…..I appreciate my friend for using some of my op-eds for his service….stop by and visit the site…..become better informed….

Talk of a third Intifada: Where to from here, Palestine? | Middle East Eye

The tit for tat violence in the area around East Jerusalem has prompted some to call for a 3rd intifada….a popular uprising of Palestinians against the occupation, destruction and theft that Israel is perpetrating against the population of the territories.

Personally, I think it is a good idea…..but more on the lines of the 1st Intifada and not the mindless violence of the 2nd…………
