Heather Mac Donald: Police Believe ‘Black Lives Matter’ More Than Any Government Agency

Appearing on Steve Malzberg’s weekly Sunday commentary show Eat the Press, Manhattan Institute conservative scholar and New York Times bestselling author Heather Mac Donald scolded the media for ignoring widespread black-on-black crime while conveying a false narrative of rampant racist policing, stating, “there is no government agency more dedicated to the proposition that black lives matter than the police.”

After Malzberg declared that he could not imagine anything “more dangerous than a media which pushes the narrative that police hunt down and kill black men,” Mac Donald concurred.


“You’re absolutely right,” she said. “The perception that we are living through an epidemic of racially biased police shootings of black men is an optical illusion.”

“It is based on extraordinarily selective coverage on the part of the press; they only cover police shootings of black men,” she continued.
