Mass protests ‘ripped the mask off’ liberal media’s politicized coronavirus coverage, critics say
The coronavirus pandemic received wall-to-wall coverage by the mainstream media until it was overtaken by the mass protests of the in-custody death of George Floyd that have sparked chaos across America. But critics say that by largely dismissing social distancing concerns when it comes to the mass demonstrations, after highlighting those concerns when it came to demonstrations against the restrictions associated with the nationwide economic shutdown, the mainstream media are exhibiting a double-standard in their coverage.

The Floyd family confronted the Minneapolis police chief on air 
Minneapolis Police Department’s chief responds to a question from George Floyd’s brother, Philonise. | CNN In an interview, Philonise Floyd demanded the arrest of all the former police officers involved in George Floyd’s death. The brother of George Floyd spoke to the Minneapolis Police Department chief for the first time on Sunday and broke down in tears as he questioned whether the former police officers involved in his brother’s death would be arrested. All four officers involved in the death of George Floyd were “complicit," including the three who haven't been arrested, says Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo, responding to a question asked by @sarasidnerCNN on behalf of Floyd’s brother. https://t.co/JiE3Mx8xF2 pic.twitter.com/yalvaWfpDV— CNN (@CNN) June 1, 2020 The death of Floyd, whose neck was pinned to the ground by former officer Derek Chauvin last Monday, sparked protests across the nation. Chauvin and the three other former officers involved in the incident were swiftly fired, just a day after the death. However, only Chauvin was arrested on a charge of second-degree manslaughter and third-degree murder on Friday, while the other three former officers remain uncharged. Dressed in a T-shirt that read “I can’t breathe” — the dying words of his brother — Philonise Floyd demanded their arrest during an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon. “They’re at home right now sleeping in their bed, relaxing,” he said. “[Chauvin’s] in jail, he’s only one. The other three need to be in there. My brother — he’s in the morgue. That’s not right. I want justice now. He deserves that.” Then, as Philonise watched, CNN broadcasted a live interview with Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo, who was present at a protest near the intersection where George Floyd died. On behalf of Philonise, CNN’s Sara Sidner’s asked Arradondo whether the other three former officers would be arrested for George Floyd’s death. Arradondo removed his hat as he addressed the family: “Being silent or not intervening — to me, you’re complicit. So I don’t see a level of distinction any different,” Arradondo said. “So obviously the charging and those decisions will have to come through our county attorney’s office. Certainly, the FBI is investigating that. But to the Floyd family, I want you to know that my decision to fire all four officers was not based on some sort of hierarchy. Mr. Floyd died in our hands.” Arradondo added, “Silence and inaction, you’re complicit. You’re complicit. If there were one solitary voice, it would have intervened and acted — that’s what I would have hoped. Unfortunately, that did not occur.” He, however, failed to deliver a straightforward answer on whether or not the other three former officers would be arrested. Following his answer, Philonise challenged Arradondo on the inaction, his voice strained with frustration. “They had enough evidence to fire them, so they have enough evidence to arrest them,” he said. “I don’t know who he’s talking to, but I need him to do it because we all are listening. Black lives matter.” And although Philonise managed to keep a stone face throughout the interview, he eventually broke down into tears and buried his face into his hand as Sidner also grew emotional when she learned that this was Philonise’s first interaction with the police chief. Even though she went on to command Arradondo’s response, she also acknowledged, “I know it doesn’t cure the ills that the Floyd family is dealing with and that all the people in this neighborhood are dealing with right now.” Support Vox’s explanatory journalism Every day at Vox, we aim to answer your most important questions and provide you, and our audience around the world, with information that has the power to save lives.
