CNN's Cuomo Tells Protester "You Know How They Are"

So here we are again with the media clearly expressing their bias towards the protesters as opposed to just reporting. The message being that the police are the unreasonable ones ready to jump to violence with minimal provocation.

CNN's Cuomo Warns Baltimore Protester About Police: 'You Know How They Are'
CNN's Chris Cuomo warned a protester in Baltimore about a possible police overreaction on Wednesday's Anderson Cooper 360. Cuomo walked up to a line of demonstrators who were protesting the death of Freddie Gray, after his arrest by the city's police, and underlined that the police would go after them: "You got to know: walking toward the cops in the middle of the street – they're going to come at you." When one of the protesters replied that they were going home, the journalist retorted, "Just be careful, because you know how they are. If you seem like you're being provocative towards them, you know how things can go." [video at the link]~snip~
At best the media should be neutral, but if they do that then they ain't "social justice warriors!!!".
