BLACK LIVES MATTER: How the corporate media chooses to frame issues:

“Black Lives Matter” has done nothing other than peacefully protest the killing of African-Americans at the hands of the police. Instead of quoting Rudolph Giuliani and his ilk who blame Black Lives Matter for the killing of the 5 Dallas police officers, why doesn’t the media look carefully into the background of the assassin Micah Johnson, a veteran of the Afghanistan-Iraq War? Could it be that the Afghanistan-Iraq War is more to blame for the death of those Dallas policemen than the non-violent Black Lives Matter movement?  

How would have the U.S. corporate media reported on the killing of the two African-Americans men in cold blood last week in Minnesota and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, as well as the hundreds of arrests since then, had those events occurred in Venezuela? CNN’s reporting of the killing of 5 police officers in Dallas is the exact antithesis of its reporting on urban violence during the 2014 “guarimba” in Venezuela in which 6 national guardsmen were killed.
