Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has had it with American media — but coverage of Sunday night’s violence in Ferguson, Missouri, really set him off.
News accounts surrounding the incident generally agreed that a man shot by police officers Sunday had fired on the cops and was wounded in the return fire. As CNN reported Monday, a gunman “unleashed a ‘remarkable amount of gunfire’ against the officers using a stolen handgun, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said.”
The Washington-based online news site Politico twisted this around, however, and tweeted:
Police shoot man who allegedly fired at officers near Ferguson protests http://t.co/gxleFC7TJR

And Clarke noticed. He fired back on Twitter.
http://t.co/MPPJH8QYMs Wrong headline by lib media as usual. Early report is that SUSPECT FIRES SHOTS AT POLICE, POLICE RETURN FIRE.

And other Twitter users replied to both Clarke and Politico. Here are a few examples:
@politico <- why do you word things to try and produce hate? The media is America’s enemy #2 behind ISIS.
