The national media only picked up 9 percent of stories where a black police officer shot a black suspect but covered 38 percent of stories where a white police officer shot a black suspect according to a study analyzing media coverage from 2013 to 2015, Real Clear Politics reports.
From John R. Lott Jr., Real Clear Politics, July 08, 2020, "Selective Media Reporting Further Fuels Our Racial Divide":
On Saturday, a man drove his car onto a Seattle freeway that had been closed by a Black Lives Matter crowd. The driver killed one person and seriously injured another after going the wrong way up a ramp and then around a barricade. Reports noted that police “don’t believe impairment was a factor.” Over the weekend, news outlets replayed the brutal hit, but there’s one thing you won’t learn from their coverage: The driver was black and his victims were white.I guarantee the shooting coverage stats today would be even worse.
The media is not only puffing up every story of a white cop interacting with black suspects but they're hyping the hell out of private citizens interactions with black people in racially charged situations to cynically inflame racial tensions.
In many cases, the media will even fraudulently edit footage of white cops interacting with black suspects to make the situation seem worse than it actually was, as we saw recently with The Guardian's deceptive and dishonest coverage of the Ahmaub Arbery arrest in 2017.
The media's false narratives are getting innocent white people killed every day but they just ignore it and focus on microaggressions.
