The Washington Post has appointed a “social change reporter,” Sandhya Somashekar, and her front-page story on Wednesday promoted black protesters surrounding the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri. The subhead was “Protesters aim to keep pricking the consciousness of whites and the political establishment.”

Somashekar made absolutely zero reference to the Post’s earlier reporting that seven or eight African American eyewitnesses are backing up the account of police officer Darren Wilson that Michael Brown was fighting for the policeman’s gun, causing Wilson to fire in self-defense.
