I was watching Channel News 12 yesterday at a friends house. It is a local news broadcast for Optimum subscribers for the Southwestern part of Connecticut. I don’t know how many of you have ever seen this outstanding journalism before. I just finished medicating when this came across the TV and it caught my attention.
At first glance, I was confused what was being reported here. Obviously, someone was mugged, but I didn’t know why there was a picture of a marijuana leaf. Apparently, the suspect was caught and happened to have 3.5 grams of marijuana in his possession. It appears, from the graphic, they are reporting more about the marijuana than anything else. What they didn’t report was that he was busted with a bag with seven smaller bags of cocaine and the intent to sell. But apparently, marijuana is the worse thing that happened in this situation. I just hope the victims are ok!
Obviously, the media skews the news being reported, but in this case, I wonder what their agenda is here.
News 12 reported The Hour first broke the story, but apparently didn’t read the entire article.
