    I think major media has an obligation to cover what's going on in Ferguson.

    If bloggers, tweeters and livestreamers want to stay home, that's one thing. They're putting themselves on the line and don't have resources (like legal teams) behind them.

    But it's my opinion that the MSM absolutely should be there. This is major protesting (and some rioting) in America over racial inequality. We give the networks access to the airways in exchange for being the People's press as guaranteed under the First Amendment.

    They better be reporting on such a major event. If conservatives don't like it, they can change the channel, not buy that newspaper, or not load that website.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
