Early on already several live shots of peaceful protests overhead in Downtown Oakland and San Francisco following the Decision in Ferguson...
*KGO-TV: Chopper shots and live reports in Oakland. No issues.
*KPIX: Phil Matier live from Frank Ogawa Plaza. Peaceful protests. Overhead shots show protesters marching up and down Broadway with lots of noise, no violence. Ken Bastida is slightly shouting. Veronica De La Cruz seems sort of excited. They keep going back to DT Oakland but there's NO thing to report.
KRON: Live reports. Standard faire.
KNTV: First with helicopter shots over Downtown Oakland. Nothing out of the ordinary except the usual visuals: there's nothing there, guys.
KTVU: They love this team coverage approach although nothing is happening for them to warrant the News Chopper 2 over Oakland and San Francisco. Gasia Mikaelian is SCREAMING and breathless.
