We'll Furnish The Pictures, You Furnish The Riot

The Opinionated Bastard notes that Big Media’s mindset has changed not one iota over the last 15 years:

Let me tell you a story.

I grew up in Simi Valley.

My wife grew up in LA.

My wife has been beat up by the LAPD. Simi Valley was where the Rodney King trial was held (though none of the jurors were from there, FYI).

Remember that.

I was in LA the day of the Rodney King verdict.

All day, I saw the media run retrospectives of the Watts riots.
