News?!

4 days of Baltimore unrest. Non-stop coverage. All media. Including print. Fomenting an event. It was really a 1 day story. Meanwhile, the Baltimore Symphony gave a free concert outdoors. Community kids cleaned up the streets. 6 days of previous peaceful protests. None of those covered by the press.

Hillary gave a good speech at Columbia University about the culture of incarceration. She spoke with passion, compassion and insight. Only clips of that on any channel. The Prime Minister of Japan spoke to the Joint Session of Congress for the first time in history. Abe. No. Not Abe. Abay. He was poignant, funny, endearing. Only covered on C-Span. Not even on evening networks.

What is news?
