Many details about what’s happening in the US have been shocking but not entirely surprising. But this corporate response made me realise just how stark the situation is: ViacomCBS, a multi-billion dollar US media corporation, is shutting down programming across 11 channels and running an 8 min 46 sec video — this being the time it took for Floyd to die. I find this an incredible indication of what’s happening there.
