This case was nothing new. There exists a bias in most of the mainstream media today and if the story doesn't fit the liberal theme they can either downplay the story, bury it, or skew it to fit the liberal worldview. Recent examples of my opinion would be the mainstream media's outright ignoring or excusing the Benghazi coverup in the days just prior to the election. Think old GW would have gotten that kind of treatment from the fourth estate if it happened under his watch? What about Fast and Furious? Try listening to a public radio roundtable "Discussion", and you'll hear three liberals and a "Moderate" tripping over each others nodding heads to agree with each other. And on the taxpayer's dime to boot.

Take anything you hear from the media with a grain of salt. They have an agenda. One other example of media bias, this one local... A few years ago a big Tea Party rally was held at the State capital in St Paul. I saw the rally on the lead in to the WCCO 6pm news and was excited to watch the news coverage. I naively thought that the Tea Party message of a return to the Constitution, fiscal sanity and limited government was finally going to be heard. Instead what I got was a three second shot of the "Angry" crowd and then the station went right in to a press conference with a government employee reminding us how "Important" government is. That was it. Not one word about what the Tea Party was about or what we wanted other than we were "Angry". Not long after of course we were all tagged as rascists as well. The mainstream media is the biggest threat to our Republic.

Zimmerman is going to be a rich man when he wins this lawsuit. They fired 3 people for crying out loud.

To purposely try to smear & ruin this guy is right out of the Democrat playbook by media completely in the bag for liberal politicians & their agenda. I hope he wins a ton.

Yes, they ruined his reputation as a FINE upstanding individual with no "illegal" actions taken with hiding money, etc, etc, etc.

"There was no intent to portray Mr. Zimmerman unfairly," she said. >>> BS. They edited the call. Despicable.
