NBC Nightly news: media critic?

This is a fitting story celebrating (?) Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. day.

NBC news promoted a story supposedly criticizing the lack of "blanket" coverage (over the top) of a missing African American young lady.

In the video you can see that the Baltimore local news covered it. CNN was on it. People in the area were involved, friends put the story out on Youtube and elseswhere, ...and


To despair that it is has been put in the 24 hour echo chamber, and to speculate that it's because she wasn't "white" is to turn reality on it's head.

The top news network doing a story about how others aren't carrying the story enough?
