Fox News has been showing video of violent and incendiary '60s riots - for
illustrative purposes only, of course.

Brian Seltzer  on CNN 's "Reliable Sources" worries that this "riot porn"
can be "misleading."

A little later, a journalist decries "bothsidesism": the belief that both
sides of any story must be presented even if, in some cases, one side is
clearly unreasonable, irrational, disingenuous, or the like.
