The media's reporting (and framing) of the unrest in Baltimore has been frustrating for many city residents, as evidenced by heated exchanges between protesters and talking heads like Fox News' Geraldo Rivera and MSNBC's Thomas Roberts.
On Tuesday, Roberts interviewed protester Danielle Williams about whether rioting and looting were the best way to represent a community searching for justice. Williams said it wasn't before quickly putting the spotlight back on Roberts and the wider media coverage of the Freddie Gray case:
"My question to you is, when we were out here protesting all last week for six days straight peacefully, there were no news cameras, there were no helicopters, there was no riot gear, and nobody heard us. So now that we've burned down buildings and set businesses on fire and looted buildings, now all of the sudden everybody wants to hear us. Why does it take a catastrophe like this in order for America to hear our cry? I mean, enough is enough. We've had too many lives lost at the hands of police officers.
Watch the tense exchange, AFTER THE JUMP…
