Bullying, Bias And CNN

Friday, July 19, 2013
As I have watched different news channels there seems to be a pattern on some. The coin never has two sides but only the one they put forth. Since the verdict what CNN, HLN, MSNBC and others have been so one sided than ever before. If what they have engaged in had been done by some teens the story would be about cyber bullying. They seem unable to give a fair assement of the trial and have started trashing Zimmerman every hour since the trial. They seem to have a goal of crucfying and trashing Zimmerman. Listen for the words such as could be, might be, maybe and then followed by asking each other what they think.
 
They keep injecting race into the situtation and there has been no facts or evidence offered to back up this position. Remember, listen for the words could be, might be and maybe. This is done to protect themselves from being accused of false statements. Remember the ABC doctored tapes? Have you heard much about this? I believe those who were fired was because they got caught not for what they did. Of course our great media has ignored acts like this.
 

Oh how I wish for the days when we could trust the media to put forth the facts and let us make up our own minds. Today they want to be the judge, jury and executioner.
