Take more than 30 seconds
This is exactly what happened with the Covington Catholic video on Friday and the way the media covered it. I said from the beginning only 30 seconds of video was being judged and there was more to consider.
With this CovCath story, you’ve seen how anyone can tell a story, how it can be slanted one way or another, how it breeds hate and divides people. You can also see the lack of substance and research most media entities put into bringing you the whole story. In the coming days and weeks you will see how hard it is to untangle, as if that is even possible. The worst damage is already done.
This isn’t new. Dave Rubin addresses this issue in the first two and half minutes of the video.
