Oakland Riots: Media Roundup

Looks like Oakland didn’t need the new HBO pimp series to flush its public image down the toilet. Major stories on last week’s riots flashed around the country, in the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, Fox News, CNet, you name it. And the question apparently on everyone’s mind is, why hasn’t Oakland ever taken to the streets over the scores of black-on-black murders that happen every day? Bill O’Reilly pushed that line with his usual fatuousness, so we’ll skip him to go directly to Stanley Crouch, the jazz critic and Daily News columnist who wrote a long, angry screed about the riot in the Daily Beast.
