You asked if the media inflamed the situation in Baltimore, of course they did, just as it was the police that inflamed it. It is everybody's fault other than the protesters. It is because of poor schools, no jobs and the blue sky. When you have a large group of blamers including the liberal commentators, you can expect blaming to occur.
I can understand aggressive reporting; it's all about the ratings, but this ambush style reporting is more suited to the paparazzi than professional journos. Even the most respected reporters tarnish their image when they engage in it. Your thoughts?
