<p>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.&nbsp;</p>

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