Poynter, the head of the International Fact-Checking Network which operates Politifact, is calling on local news outlets to stop covering local crime stories to avoid connecting "Black and brown communities" to crime.
From Poynter, "It's time for journalism to break the cycle of crime reporting":
Arrests for misdemeanors disproportionately affect people of color. Systemic racism compounds the injustice as reviews have shown that prosecutors are more likely to exclude Black jurors from trials.Poynter president Neil Brown hates the fact people can still see what's really happening in our streets despite their massive censorship regime and their blacklists.
Last year, the Nieman Journalism Lab also called for ending the local crime beat because, in their words, "it's racist."
The Nieman Journalism Lab exists solely to shut down honest journalism and the Poynter International Fact-Checking Network exists solely to shut down factual reporting.
