    It has everything for people to rail about. Guns, media bias...So obviously the right is going to line up for guns and against the media, and the left is going to look with skepticism on anybody who feels that they need a gun when they go to Target.

    Of course not. The media has done a horrible job and has been doing so for a long time. The days of true investigative journalism have been replaced by news “commentary” in today’s 24 hour news cycle.

    IMO, "not caring" is the worst possible thing....even worse than the so-called "media coverage".
    I agree (media coverage) , our media is largely based on profit and sensationalism and has little to be proud of......nor can many of us hold our heads high.

    To be fair and balanced about this, IMO, Mr Martin was killed, rather than murdered....At the trial, muder/kill can be determined - hopefully.
    And, I feel that this need not have occured if we had gun control in our nation...
    That Mr Zimmermann was able to pack heat tells me that we have no gun control.... at least in Florida...

    it's a real tragedy with no winners regardless of how it turns out.

    as for media coverage, some are obviously biased towards convicting Zimmerman in the court of public opinion, and Fox news has never spent this much time and effort trying to exonerate a Hispanic man. CNN coverage has been so-so.
