The Media Are Like Deer, VolkanOlmez Sad

The media are like deer: they love the bright, shiny lights of fire and are mesmerized, intoxicated by its glow. They won’t cover the 10,000 peaceful marching, or even the objects thrown at them by the residents of the neighboring community. They’ll look at the 100 or so setting fires and looting. Also, the fires will prevent them from seeing that the community’s pastors are the ones who break up the violence, not the police. In this case, it was the community leaders, including pastors and members of city council who brought the tensions down and secured the neighborhood.Drew Downs
