Once again I opened my morning Herald expecting to see extensive coverage of the murders of the Dallas police officers. Once again I was disappointed and disgusted.
One day, Dwyane Wade was the headline, another day it was something about yard sales in Venezuela, and on Tuesday’s newspaper the front page carried information about a silly, trivial Pokemon game!
I am appalled at the coverage the Miami Herald has not had regarding this horrendous act in Dallas! The newspaper has shocked and disappointed me before, but this is an all-time low.

Where is all of the information about the men in uniform who were killed? Those who were wounded? The civilians who were hurt? Background on the killer? An article about the hero in all of this, Police Chief David Brown?
I cannot help but think that the coverage is much greater when the shoe is on the other foot, when an officer kills a black man. In fact, I know it is. I have seen and read the pages and long articles with every single detail layed out.
The Miami Herald should be ashamed, and everyone who has anything to do with what is covered and printed in this newspaper should hang their head.
