Watch: Talib Kweli Argues With CNN’s Don Lemon Over Ferguson Coverage
During an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon in Ferguson, Mo. on Thursday (Aug. 21), Brooklyn native Talib Kweli called the anchor out on inaccurate reporting and the media’s overall portrayal of the Michael Brown shooting and the protests that soon followed.
Part of Talib’s trip to the St. Louis suburb was to “control the narrative,” he said, stating that the media has been doing a “horrible job of making sure the stories get out.” Lemon then defended his employer and its around-the-clock coverage but fails to let Talib make his point before everything hits the fan.
