Media’s Favorite Black Lives Matter Activist Running for Mayor in Baltimore

Posted on 04 February 2016

Just before the filing deadline, BLM activist Deray Mckesson joined the mayoral race in Baltimore on Wednesday evening and the national media took note. Maybe that’s because Mckesson was already the media’s appointed spokesman for the Black Lives Matter movement, being featured everywhere from MSNBC to CNN  to C-Span. What should’ve been a local news story was highlighted by all the major national media outlets, from the Washington Post, to the New York Times, even NBCNews.com, proving that his run has more to do with the media’s fascination with Black Lives Matter than an interest in local politics.
