Flaws of riot media coverage

“The mid-May violence in Jakarta and several other cities could best be described as racialized state-terrorism, rather than racially motivated mass riots. Failure to recognize the difference has been alarmingly endemic in media coverage. This is especially rampant in the foreign media, otherwise sympathetic toward the victims and the future of Indonesia. Not only can such misleading coverage boost racial antagonism, more seriously it implicitly exonerates the real culprits.”
