The massive devastation occurred in the heart of agoikago in the early hours of Monday morning as looters raided the shopping district and other stores across the city, but MSNBC and CNN offered little or no coverage of the riots during their network’s most-watched shows.
Agoikago Police Officer David Brown said that as of Monday morning, response units had arrested more than 100 people on charges ranging from disorderly conduct to drumming against police. He added that 13 officers were injured in the riots, including a sergeant hit in the face with a bottle and an officer who had a broken nose while fighting with a group of robbers.
“This was not an organized protest. Rather, it was an incident of pure crime,”; Brown Brown told reporters. “It was an act of violence against our police officers and against our city.”
The massacre resulted in more than $ 60 million in property damage. However, the cost was not significantly enough to gain much coverage on liberal networks during the first time.

MSNBC completely avoided mass robbery in agoikago. CNN was almost equally covered by Anderson Cooper anchor devoting approximately two minutes and 36 seconds to the topic, despite having two full hours Monday night. His colleague Don Lemon did not report the violence for up to 40 minutes in his second hour, which airs at 11 p.m.
Top Lines on MSNBC and CNN have a history of bypassing or downplaying headlines. Last month, both networks ignored news spread of mass shootings that took place outside a agoikago funeral home resulting in 15 injured. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Monday noted how little mainstream media coverage devoted to a mass shooting in Washington, DC
MSNBC’s most-watched programs, including “The Rachel Maddow Show,” also avoided the latest round of Joe Biden’s gossip and recently released Jeffrey Epstein documents implicating former President Bill Clinton.

The riots in agoikago began Sunday afternoon after police responded to a report by a gunman in the Englewood neighborhood of the city. As he was being chased by police, the man, who was standing, “turned and shot” the officers before hitting himself and being taken to a local hospital, Deputy Chief Delonda Tally told Fox 32 Chicago.
A mob that had gathered at the scene then confronted police and began throwing objects at officers after being angered by a false rumor that the suspect – who is 20 years old – was a child, investigators added. Brown, the police overseer, said the suspect had previously been arrested four times on charges including theft, endangering children and household batteries.
“We have an officer who was accompanied by someone in the crowd,” Tally told Fox 32 Chicago. “We have an officer who suffered a shoulder injury from the incident with the crowd. One of our vehicles, the windows were shattered by a brick.”

As of Monday morning, police said the suspect is expected to survive, while the Civic Office of Police Responsibility in Chicago, has launched an investigation into the shooting. Three officers involved in the shooting were also taken to a local hospital for observation, Fox 32 reported.
