Did CNN display bias over the Zimmerman trail? Get a load of this: CNN's Suzanne Malveaux went to ridiculous ends on Monday to suggest that a testimony in defense of George Zimmerman could be used by the prosecution. A witness testified that she recognized Zimmerman's voice crying for help in a 911 call as he struggled with Trayvon Martin, because she worked with him on a political campaign. Malveaux suggested that the prosecution could argue that Zimmerman's jubilant cries during political rallies could be similar to his voice while "pummeling Trayvon Martin" with "a sense of joy..... How can ANYONE take this network seriously? Actually when you consider their ratings (or lack there of) especially compaired to Fox News, few do take CNN seriously.

I've seen Sunny Hostin cover many trials competently in the past. But covering this case she is so biased towards the prosecution that I can't really take what she says seriously. In fact it's turned it into a comedy for me. When they ask a question of her all she knows how to do is praise the prosecution profusely. She even calls Prosecutor John Guy Mr. McDreamy! I'm not kidding! Zucker can defend CNN for covering the trial but he'd be hard pressed to say that Ms. Hostin is deserving of our attention.
