For over a year now the National news media (CNN, HLN, FOX, to name a few) have given more coverage to the Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman case than to anything else that has been happening in the world.
From the minute that this began, through the investigation, through the trial and even now, EVEN NOW, MORE THAN A WEEKS AFTER THE VERDICT WAS RENDERED AND IT SHOULD ALL HAVE BEEN OVER, we have not missed a single word, a single march or a single demonstration. The news media broadcast the trial live from the courtroom. EVERY WORD AND EVERY GESTURE. And then they spent the rest of the day and night rehashing every word and every gesture and analyzing them until most people where sick to death of listening.
When it comes to a WHITE PERSON doing harm to a BLACK PERSON there is no end to the media coverage. The news media has given Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and the NAACP, the platform they want and need to promote their own brand of racial unrest.
BUT WHERE IS THE NEWS MEDIA WHEN IT COMES TO A BLACK PERSON DOING HARM TO A WHITE PERSON.
There are a number of these cases, and the only media that is reporting them is the local media where the news happens. And then they are forgotten. Why are we not getting national coverage. why are we not getting minute by minute reports of every word spoken right down to close-ups of every eye blink.
4 black men beat a white man and chased him into the street to be struck by a passing car and killed.
2 black men shot and killed a white 13 month old BABY just for the fun of it.
black man shoots 3 white women, killing 1 and paralyzing another
Roderick Scott found not guilty of manslaughter
Black man kills a white child and serves just 5 months. Al Sharpton and the NAACP approve.
WHY IS THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA IGNORING THESE STORIES. WHY ARE THEY NOT GETTING THE SAME COVERAGE THAT THE TRAYVON MARTIN STORY GOT.
IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE MEDIA IS HELPING TO PROMOTE RACISM FOR THEIR OWN AGENDA.
If this is not the news media’s agenda, then whose agenda is it. Is this being promoted by Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and the NAACP so that they will not have to get real jobs. For the minute that we no longer have racism in this country, these people will be unemployed.
Or is the agenda of the federal government. If so, then we need to ask, what do they gain and why.
