The media are playing games with the minds of millions of people all over the world. While it may seem an innocuous thing, They are depicting images that came out when the case first broke.

That they are showing images of a much younger Trayvon Martin, perhaps as much as 5 years before the tragic incident took place.

Yet they show Zimmerman as he is now, so is that fair?

Well in a word no it is not fair. There are images of an older Trayvon Martin one that shows his interest in street fighting, shows his interest in Gang politics, (allegedly) Images that show a much different looking Trayvon Martin, images that depict a perhaps and allegedly violent Martin a side of the man that no one has seen but yet the media show only those images that tend to depict the man as if he were an innocent.

The problem is that Trayvon Martin was a man, were the situation reversed Trayvon Martin would have been charged as an adult, everyone knows that, yet they are still showing images that show him as he WAS, when he was much younger.

So why are the media not showing the images of Martin closer to his actual age?

Why are they playing games here because this is serious business.

 We know the media have sought to bend fold mutilate this case from the beginning, yet the media can get away with doing just about anything they want to do.

 

source,

The state says Zimmerman chased and confronted Martin, and then fired at Martin only after he realized he was losing the ensuing fight. Zimmerman says he fired in self-defense after Martin doubled back and attacked him, breaking his nose and bashing his head on the sidewalk.

The killing became a national story after Sanford police refused to charge Zimmerman with any crime, saying they had no evidence to counter his self-defense claim. Forty-four days later a Seminole County grand jury indicted Zimmerman on second degree murder charges.

If convicted, Zimmerman, an aspiring police officer who served as a neighborhood watch captain, could spend the rest of his life in Florida state prison.

Fox news not real news?

Is fox news failing to meet the expectation of the consumer of hard news?

The idea that the 24 hour news cycle and its expected influence on voting habits of adult voters, is highly unlikely.

Today we noticed that during a fox news segment, that one of the bobble heads that do the news, either with a short short skirt, or a sort of strange grin on their faces, they try to make the news instead of reporting on it, it is really interesting to watch these people try to influence the tone and the treble of how the news is reported.

The topic they were trying to influence was that a certain candidate was polling higher than others.

What they failed to state was the source of the poll, the likely intent of the voter, the area where the voters were living, (ie voters who lived in a certain district in new york state) this is a problem when new personal present news that has allegedly been polluted by bias.

When you fail to provide a basis of hard news fact checking you produce substandard news, (if you can call it that at all)

So is fox news, really about the news or is it about what the bobble heads think the news should be about.

When you consider it, you have to think about how the reality of the news should be presented not the way you personally feel about the news but the way that the facts dictate.

Facts are real not opinions, the problem is that in many situations fox news allows the opinon of the reporter to color the news story.
