If there's anything the news networks love, it's a good riot. Well - some
riots (sports fans trashing a city after a game get a "tsk-tsk" and shoulder shrug). But for the last several days, it's been non-stop 24/7 coverage of the meltdown in Baltimore. There have been a lot of questions asked and assumptions made by the talking heads on the news outlets, but they never seem to ask the right questions, nor make astute assumptions. Everything is dumbed down, as if it could all be summed up in a simple sound bite.
But it's not a simple situation.
