• VIDEO: Exploiting Ferguson: Behold the Mainstream Media’s Worst Michael Brown Analogies

    Martin Luther King, Jr!

    Emmett Till!

    Apartheid!

    Genocide!

    Just a few of the unfortunate analogies that the shameless mainstream media has been using to describe the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. And that’s not even to mention Michael’s own uncle, Pastor Charles Ewing, comparing the teen to Jesus Christ himself.

    For a media machine that so desperately wants to have the appearance of helping calm down tensions in Ferguson, they’ve sure done a piss-poor job of proving it.

    I’ve compiled the above video with cooperation from the good folks at Grabien. There truly has been a low bar set in the landscape of modern media in an age where I feel compelled to assemble a video like this at all.

    Hyperbole much? You bet.
