One journalist calls for another’s ouster

“Anyone that encourages rioting should not be given air time. @cnn should remove Marc Lamont Hill.”– ABC News analyst Matthew Dowd. Hill, a CNN commentator, reportedly remarked that it is okay “to assert our right to have righteous rage in the face of state violence.” Marc Lamont Hill stressed that “we shouldn’t be killing people,” but said there should not be calm tonight. He said the people have a right to be mad because of “police terrorism.” He continued, “I think we should be strategic in how we riot.”
