Little in the state television reports is left to conjecture, save for an addendum offered as a tip to President Obama: that the Ferguson riots may not just be local, but have already become a national problem.

I can't understand what that means.

Which part do you not understand? I see three elements that may cause confusion.

Save for is used as a synonym for Except for.
An addendum in this case is an extra comment at the end of the original piece.
A tip in this case is a suggestion.

So the sentence suggests that the reporter has added a suggestion to the end of the report.
