Networks juxtapose images of Obama with violence in Ferguson
Image: Screenshot: CNN. President Obama called for a calm response to the St. Louis Grand Jury's decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson Monday night. He appealed for the words of Mike Brown's family to be heeded. He broke new ground, in the traditionally cautious realm of presidential statements in admitting that yes, there is a problem with racially charged situations like this shooting in America. You may not have heard a lot of that, because nearly all stations carrying the message did so as a split screen with scenes of smoke or tear gas erupting in Ferguson, and a police car overturned.
