    unless you want to take "for-profit" out of journalism, nothing much will change

    this has been going on for a long time now, regardless of what msm source you look to...and don't think FOX isn't part of the MS Corporate Media who has their own agenda...they have equally used the Martin case to push their brand of white victomhood for ratings.

    as for Zimmerman, personally its hard to have sympathy for him at this point, when the only thing proven was that there wasn't enough evidence to convict him of the charges

    at best, he made some bad decisions himself, which could have been completely avoided, but was ultimately justified in shooting a kid

    looking to see how a potential civil suit plays out

    If it's on TV, forget about "journalism."

    The left media painted a completey dishonest portrait of Zimmerman. The Civil suite should be Zimmerman suing the prosecutor, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

    I am more worried that there are a plethora of "media" who are unabashedly liberal but really only one that espouses conservative ideals. And they at least give the other side a chance to make their point. If this is purely a "for profit" scheme, the numbers indicate that the country isn't going to "get religion" anytime soon.

    The media shouldn't be espousing anybody's ideal unless they want to give equal time and credence to both sides of the isle/argument/etc. Those that do are not participating in Journalism, rather Propaganda.

    And it's alive and well in print media too, though many do actually try to be objective (just hard to do in such an insular world).

    Actually, it's the worst I've ever seen it in my lifetime and I understand why people are tuning out. Honestly, it's a real pain in the arse to filter out so much crap in search of anything resembling truth or true objectivity.

    1- I will readily agree Fox has a conservative slant but it is hardly pushing white victimhood- unlike the LMSM who has pushed black victimhood for many many years

    2- Trayvon's death was tragic but his decisions to attack played a big part in his own demise- the fact that blacks still want to play the hurtful victim who cannot get justice is their issue - and helps them little

    yeah it's impossible to have sympathy for a guy who based upon the evidence at hand was doing his job as the neighborhood watchman, got out of his car to locate a suspicious individual, and got pummeled to the point where he was reasonable in fearing for his own life.

    from that point on the media distorted evidence, the government acted in an illegal manner in withholding evidence, which has made him into a national villan even when the FBI concluded that there was zero indication of racial bias.


    but yeah......no reason to have sympathy for the guy when there is good potential that all he did was take his job as neighborhood watchman too seriously....

    Yep, CBS CEO a few years ago was the highest paid CEO in America. Funny how you don't hear about that from the white liberal media. They like profit when it goes in the right pockets. Nothing will change until you have them go nonprofit.
