I did not state that the article from CNN is inaccurate, but that it was biased. I don't doubt that parents were interested in closing down schools out of fears for their children. What upsets me is that there is no fair representation of the protests. The CNN article portrays the protestors in a negative light, insinuating that all of them are violent, instead of actually going to investigate the true story. Unbiased media resources should provide the entire picture: both the fears of the parents AND the overwhelming majority of protestors who are protesting non-violently. Instead of provoking fear of the upcoming protests, they should get the inside scoop and find out what the protests are all about.
