3/4 Of Local Residents Agree Media Made Ferguson Situation Worse


Three-fourths of St. Louis County, Mo., residents agreed after last month’s fatal police killing of Michael Brown that the news media “contributed to making the situation in Ferguson worse,” says the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Of those criticizing the media coverage in Ferguson, 50 percent were African American and 81 percent were white.

The survey was conducted by the Remington Research Group on two days this month of 604 residents. Ferguson is a city within St. Louis County.
