My favorite part of the article I've linked here:
...a television reporter who showed up to portray the dogs in a negative light asked the veterinarian why there were so many media reports about these dogs going bad. The African American vet countered, “Why do you think there is still racism in America?” The reporter was dumbfounded.
Good answer...and it is the solid truth. Media is one of the worst offenders of sensationalizing bad news and most of the time they get it wrong.
