So it was disappointing, but not surprising, to see the featured story (to your left) on their website.
Quick math will show you how systemic racism works - even at a network that concurrently was 'printing' stories about how Asian hate is a thing.
Mathematically, let's break this down for CNN:
8 - Deaths
6 - of those were Asian
2 - the number of victims featured in their story
0 - the number of them who were Asian
I think the scary thing is - probably few even noticed. Certainly not their editors.
This behaviour is so engrained and even tolerated that this comes across as acceptable. It is no wonder that police and the judicial system have (and probably will) let the the murderer get off with nary a slap.
News has to be better than this - but we know they're not. Beholden to ratings and advertising dollars leaves little room for facts, integrity and the complete lack of investigational journalism. I think the last five years have confirmed that - though it was certainly a problem before BLOTUS.
Let's hope things change. Because sure as hell, I sent that photo capture I snagged and sent it to CNN.
