Jason Riley joined host Ben Domenech to discuss the recent changes in the Black Lives Matter movement and its demand to defund the police. Riley, a columnist at the Wall Street Journal, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, and a contributor at Fox News, delves into how the media has influenced such ideas.

Riley argued the recent protests as well as events prior were in part caused by the media for failing to provide realistic data on police force, particularly regarding race. The media, he said, has scared people into believing a false narrative about police brutality by giving special attention to isolated incidents.

    Excellent interview. Unfortunately non-blacks holding blacks accountable is this last thing most non-blacks feel they can do at this moment.
