Poll: nearly two-thirds say Ferguson-type incidents are overreported
62% of the American people believe that other blacks shooting innocent blacks is a bigger problem than policemen shooting blacks. And 61% believe that incidents such as the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Mo, are overhyped by the media.
63% say that the jobs of police are made more dangerous as a result.
Yet another example of the social and political agenda of those who report the news distorting their coverage of it.
