ANTI-POLICE MEDIA BIAS TWISTS WORDS TO FAVOR MAN WHO SHOT RHOME PD OFFICER
Royce Wood is accused of shooting a City of Rhome Texas police officer during a traffic stop, Wood escaped and a week-long manhunt was undertaken until Wood was captured. Wood was clearly identified by the officer as the shooter. So why did WFAA word their story to say Wood “… shot at …” the officer, and later state Wood “… injured the officer…”. Why did WFAA not say “ … Wood shot the officer…”? All part of the media bias in the war on cops. Be aware of this when writing press releases about incidents and dealing with follow-up reporter questions. Look for reporters to ask leading questions to better help them shape the story to their agenda. Also monitor what the reporter writes about the incident and if there are untrue statements, or statements you did not make, call-out the reporter. You can also issue a follow-up statement with the correct information and challenge the what the reporter wrote if it is incorrect, or mis-leading. To view the whole story click HERE.
