The media make money off race riots. They gin them up; they promote them; then they react to them. Media reactions to the riots in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray have ranged from the egregious to the ridiculous.
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges, more commonly known as the same-sex marriage case.

As rioters rushed through the streets of Baltimore, torching police vehicles, looting local stores, and attacking police officers and reporters alike, some intrepid leftists justified the activity.
On Tuesday, as the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on whether the Constitution of the United States mandates that states accept legally sponsored same-sex marriage, 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton changed her avatar on Twitter from her normal logo to a rainbow logo.

Hillary Clinton and her team seem to expect that the media world will resonate to them the same way they did in the 1990s. Matt Drudge changed the coverage of the Clintons by destroying the cozy relationship between the mainstream media, who wanted to kill the Lewinsky story, and the reader; now media are punished for failures to report. Should the media downplay this scandal, the American people will chalk it up to media bias, rather than the notion that there is no scandal to investigate.

The media Blue Fairy has descended from the heavens, declaring that Hillary’s new, fun, spontaneous campaign has shown us all the true woman who exists beneath our sexist preconceptions.
On Wednesday, Republicans declared victory over President Obama after passing a bipartisan bill designed to stifle Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran. There’s only one problem: the bill doesn’t stop Obama in any way. In fact, it does the opposite, by granting congressional Democrats an easy excuse for voting to allow Obama to end the sanctions against Iran without political consequence.
Wednesday marks Tax Day in the United States, the day when Americans are obligated to turn in their taxes to the Internal Revenue Service. Normally, you’d expect those who actually, you know, pay taxes to complain about the government robbing them of their livelihood to pay for programs and projects from which they will never benefit. But not anymore.
On Monday, German novelist, Nobel Prize winner, and former Waffen-SS Nazi Günter Grass died in Lubeck, Germany, at the age of 87. The press mourned his passing.

On Monday, the University of Virginia’s Phi Kappa Psi fraternity announced it would investigate a lawsuit against Rolling Stone.
