Poll: nearly two-thirds say Ferguson-type incidents are overreported

Despite the firestorm of publicity over incidents in which police have shot supposedly innocent African-Americans, a new Rasmussen poll says that most Americans aren't buying it.

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.
