As Charlotte, North Carolina was being torn apart on Wednesday night, cable networks CNN, the Fox News Channel (FNC), and MSNBC offered wall-to-wall coverage of the carnage and tense scenes that, during the 9:00 p.m. Eastern hour, resulted in the one civilian being shot by another civilian and injuries to roughly a dozen police officers but MSNBC saw no reason in that hour to inform their viewers of the rampant looting by the Black Lives Matter protesters. 

In addition, host Rachel Maddow and correspondents Gabe Guiterrez and Tammy Leitner made sure to blast police officers for carrying out “violent arrests” of agitators who hurled bottles, fireworks, and gas canisters at officers and continually spun the scene as involving “a mostly peaceful group of people” but only “some agitators.”
