EVERYBODY.

THANK YOU, JON.

I'LL SEE YOU LATER.

IT'S BEEN LESS THAN TWO MONTHS SINCE THE START OF MASSIVE

PROTESTS AGAINST RACISM AND POLICE BRUTALITY, FOLLOWING THE

MURDER OF GEORGE FLOYD, AND THE MOVEMENT HAS NOT STOPPED.

THERE ARE NEW PROTESTS HAPPENING EVERY DAY.

AND THE FACT THAT, DURING A PANDEMIC, SO MANY PEOPLE ARE

WILLING TO GO OUT AND ADVOCATE FOR CHANGE IS INSPIRING TO SEE.

THE ONLY PROBLEM IS WE'RE NOT SEEING IT AS OFTEN AS WE USED

TO.

APPARENTLY, THE MEDIA ISN'T FOCUSING ON THE PROTESTS AS MUCH

AS THEY DID WHEN THERE WAS MORE CLASHING WITH AUTHORITY AND

DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY.

BUT IT TURNS OUT, THERE'S A NEW PRODUCT THAT MIGHT SOLVE THE

PROBLEM OF GETTING THE MEDIA TO COVER PEACEFUL PROTESTS.

TAK A LOOK.

>> EVERY DAY ACROSS THE COUNTRY, THOUSANDS OF PROTESTERS

CONTINUES TO TAKE TO THE STREETS, BUT FOR SOME REASON

THESE CRIES FOR JUSTICE DON'T GET THE SAME AIR TIME AS THESE!

( SIREN ) WELL, NOT ANYMORE.
