Feds shut down Ferguson airspace to prevent media oversight of police

Audio recordings obtained by the Associated Press prove that the no-fly zone imposed over Ferguson, MO during the August unrest was designed to prevent the media from getting a birds-eye view of police activities. The Federal Aviation Administration closed more than 37 square miles of airspace surrounding the St. Louis suburb for 12 days, supposedly for safety reasons after police claimed shots were fired at a helicopter. The recordings, however, prove other motives were involved. Georgetown University Professor Christopher Chambers joins RT’s Manila Chan to discuss the efforts to shut down the press.
