What corporate media got wrong about this brutal arrest caught on bodycam

While PAR conducted two separate investigations into the case, the brutal arrest and tasering of cab driver Lufti Saalim at a Toledo, Ohio, Walmart went unreported by local news for over a year after the incident. In their reporting, moreover, these local corporate media outposts did not receive comments from law enforcement or the victim of police brutality. This superficial coverage of a case involving excessive force by police highlights larger problems with corporate media’s for-profit model and its ability to interrogate or challenge the official (and well-funded) law enforcement narratives. In this installment of PAR, we look at what gets “lost in translation” when corporate media covers police brutality and overreach.
