You can tell it's totally objective reporting . . . seeing as how they've decided before the fact (by their own description of the project) that guns are the complete and total problem behind African-American homicide. It would be heresy to investigate whether, just possibly, there are any cultural/social issues at play.

Noooo . . . don't look behind that curtain. Such would be racist.

All I want to know, is if paper's banner will be changed to "Google City Star."

^^^ Exactly.

Fuel the "Narrative".

GOOGLE is a monopoly that should be broken up. If we can break up Standard Oil, a company that NEVAR had anywhere close to as much power as GOOGLE, then we sure as hell, should break up this Fascist, Totalitarian company that loves China a hell of a lot more than it EVAR loved America.

Destroy GOOGLE now.

Wow. I wonder if they'll report facts about crimes, or whether they'll just be shaping a narrative.

Hmmm.

Does the grant demand they tell the truth?

Journalism for sale, no ethics will be applied as long the money keeps flowing. This turns the "news" pages into paid political advertisements to promote the leftist socialist authoritarian government agenda. Despicable back slide for a once respectable news organization. That ship sailed a long time ago. Sad not weird.
