The Media and the Trayvon Martin Murder

Piers Morgan and Toure Nesblitt

The media is having a difficult time in staying unbiased in the Trayvon Martin murder. Those media considered to be middle of the road or more conservative seem to be asking for more information and a willingness not to convict Zimmerman even before there is a trial. The more left media outlets make their spin sound more like a pre-recorded message out of the mouth of the Martin's attorney-guilty.

A good case in point is the recent CNN Piers Morgan and MSNBC's Toure Neblitt, an author of a few books about the black experience in America. Why he is the voice of Msnbc is beyond me. He came across as a biased, radical with the sole intent of taking on the white man. if Toure had been white, he would have made a great KKK member. His mind is closed on the Zimmercase and as Piers Morgan revealed, that is not the mark of a unbaised reporter. The two provided great entertainment.

In Morgan's interview with Zimmerman's brother, Toure thought he was too soft on him. As I watched it, Morgan did press the same questions over and over. I got the feeling that Morgan tended to think George Zimmerman was guilty of saying "coon" and likely possessed some racist views. Yet, unlike Toure who is more than willing to incite upheaval over this murder, Morgan held back, knowing full well the story continues to change. Toure is on a mission to make sure racism remains alive by inciting others.

CBS and ABC are more of the middle of the road. They report the facts and make no judgement about it. Fox News, depending who you listen to, is either right or left.

They had Zimmerman convicted before the news was even released. I'm not saying he is innocent, but there is no way he will ever get a "fair trial" now after what the media said and put in everyones heads right away. I'm all for free press and freedom of speech, but there are times when people DON'T have to know immediatly. It is all in who can get the story first. It doesn't matter if it is right or wrong or who is hurt, just who gets the all mighty story. And that's all that matters is the entertainment. My opinion, Greg
