The media has a narrative to follow because they are under orders from BLM and also #OrangeManBad.
The current narrative focuses on race. In particular, crimes committed against oppressed black people. That’s why you may not have heard of five-year-old Cannon Hinnant. When I did a Yahoo search for his name this is how many stories showed up under the “News” tab:
TWO. That’s IT.
The reason? Because Cannon was a white five-year-old boy who was EXECUTED by a black man. It doesn’t fit their current race narrative.
Here’s some of the details from Yahoo:
“A North Carolina man has been charged with the murder of a five-year-old boy after shooting him at point-blank range Sunday.
Darius Sessoms, 25, was arrested by the Wilson Police Department Monday after allegedly walking up to Cannon Hinnant, 5, and shooting him in the head.
The boy was standing outside his father’s house when Mr Sessoms allegedly shot him. According to local news broadcaster WRAL, Cannon’s seven and eight-year-old sisters saw his murder.
Cannon had just learned how to write his name and would have begun Kindergarten this year.
“[Mr Sessoms and I] used to play together and I never thought he’d kill someone,” Rachel Pipkin, one of Cannon’s mother’s cousins, told CBS News. “A mother now has to lay her son to rest at 5-years-old which she should never have to do. He’ll never be forgotten.”
According to a GoFundMe set up for the family, Mr. Sessoms shot Cannon for riding his bike into Mr Sessoms’ yard. Police have not released information regarding a motive at this time.“

Of COURSE there’s no known motive at this time. Yet I bet you would know the EXACT motive (and right away, at that) if Cannon had been a black boy and his executioner a white man.
PS: There are a number of black people celebrating the death of this child. See examples here on Mark Dice’s Twitter timeline.
