All major media is controlled by shareholders. Complete disclosure of facts rarely keeps people subscribing or tuning in. Posting partial info keeps people on their feet and paying for more. In this case, I'm sure that advertisers are paying more because people are waiting for a news headline about the police being charged criminally or paying out on a civil suit.

True journalism is very hard to find anymore. True journalism is about presenting facts, no matter how unpleasant they might be. Most news outlets are basically gossip lines. The goal of modern media isn't necessarily about about demonizing the police, but using what leverage they can to draw a profit and maintain enough gray space to avoid profit-losing repercussions in the process.
