Of course there is

Of course major media outlets are censoring news about Ferguson.

These are capitalist organizations we are talking about. As such, they rely on advertisers to function.

Advertisers do not like controversy and do not like alienating racists, since open racists are 30-50% of their market.

All ya’ll were the ones who decided to embrace the corporate and closed platforms of Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, et. al.

Now you have nothing to complain about save your own actions. This was expected behavior. Anything else would be surprising. Corporate censorship is the default state, not some anomaly.

Use and build open platforms and this doesn’t happen.

As much as people love to hate on Richard Stallman, he was right all along.
