Earlier: DAILY CALLER Missing Point On "Viral" Brawls In Fast-Food Restaurants

The Daily Caller must have an ignoring-the-obvious beat. Usually, David Hookstead, who covers public brawls for the website, ignores the obvious.

This time, it's a contributor, Nicole Silverio [Shocking Video Shows Teen Setting Woman’s Hair On Fire During Bus Ride In San Francisco, June 4, 2021].

Her story includes a video of the man who set the woman's hair on fire.

Silverio called him a "male teenager," in her account, and doesn't get around to identifying him as black until she directly quotes the cops. 

Silverio observed that the "the department called on citizens to notify them if they recognize the suspect."

But Silverio missed the obvious. Citizens can't recognize the suspect from the video. His face is covered with a spot. Nowhere did Silverio mention that glaring fact.

So we've now gone from news stories with faceless victims and suspects to the police videos that block the face of suspect they need to identify.

That fact, not the month-old crime, is the story.
