Over the past several weeks now, demonstrations have broken out across the United States of America.
A Quick Review of Protests and Riots in America
Previously, these demonstrations occurred peacefully and pertained to shutdowns which killed tens of millions of jobs, livelihoods, and businesses. As most Americans know, the mainstream media covered these peaceful protests in a very critical manner, claiming that anyone going out was inherently spreading COVID-19.
However, the tune of the mainstream media has drastically changed in the wake of the George Floyd riots. Individuals who call themselves taking a stance against Floyd’s murder have set cars and buildings ablaze, looted businesses, beat up people in the streets, and otherwise prompted carnage in America.
In spite of this, however, the mainstream media has covered violent riots in a very different manner than peaceful protests regarding shutdowns. Furthermore, significant factions of the press have declined to claim that rioters are inherently spreading COVID-19.
