What is it you 'know' I'm trying to do?<quoted text>
Sooo.....saying that the media is stoking the flames isn't the same----at all---- as you saying city officials are stoking the flames because....uhh....well.... because you say so. Got it.
Whoops, ya did it again! I know what you're trying to do, but I think you ought to stick with why did a cop shoot a civilian. Once that is answered we might get a better read on what followed.
This isn't an either-or. It's not 'the media did it' or 'city officials did it'.
All I'm trying to do - well, this is what I think I'm tyrying to do, but maybe you know better - is point out the role that Ferguson officials played in increasing the tension. They did that before the media had a chance to do their thing.
