    Your opinion on media coverage of the Trayvon Martin case

    This is mine...



    Considering that we live in a world where thousands of people die every day due to war, famine, drought, and disease, why the incessant uproar over the (possible) murder of one teenager?

    Thoughts?

    Extremely biased on both sides.

    When it appeared it was being ignored by the authorities, it deserved the media attention. But now that it is being acted on, it is just another criminal case. Let me know when there is a verdict, but other than that I don't care.

    I agree. I think the only issue I take with the case is the almost immediate division between the right and left over this case. How could this possibly break down those lines? How is it almost every issue seems to? It makes no sense to me.

    I purposefully ignore media coverage of the case.... mainly because I don't care about the case whatsoever, and secondarily, the media coverage of most things is ****.

    I don't follow news coverage of this case. That's what I have DP for.

    So, since it appeared that it was being ignored by the authorities, that gave the media the responsibility to distort the facts?

    Honestly, the only media coverage I get is that which others post here.

    After Nancy Grace and her idiotic coverage of the Casey Anthony trial I gave up on media accounts of criminal controversies.
