VERDICT: Media bias evident in Zimmerman case

The bias in the media concerning the Zimmerman trial was pretty bad. It’s was amazing how different networks slanted the story with their particular biases.

For example, if one were to watch Fox News’s coverage, George Zimmerman was clearly innocent and well on his way to a book deal about his trial, or maybe even a movie or two. On the other hand, MSNBC reported as if Zimmerman were guilty from the get-go, and he should be wearing an orange jump suit while awaiting a date with “Old Sparky,” Florida’s electric chair.

The point is, the media need to stop with the bias and just tell us what happened and keep their opinions to themselves.
