Mainstream Media Fuels The Zimmerman / Trayvon Controversy
The mainstream media continues to sensationalize stories to maintain readership / viewership. Instead of providing a balanced view of news stories they instead have created a firestorm of hate. Facebook pages like “Justice for Trayvon” are filled with misinformed / under-informed albeit well meaning and understandably outraged people. This outrage is perpetrated and fueled by the media because they feed sound bites of news and “create” portrayals of those involved to appear exceptionally one-sided. Who can look at the child-like photos of a younger Trayvon side by side with a mugshot photo of Zimmerman and not immediately be swayed. Do they place the bloodied photo of Zimmerman next to the self portrait of Trayvon giving “double bird fingers”? Of course not, that wouldn’t create the emotional reaction of the viewer that these so called news organizations need to get better ratings. The more sensational the better. In fact these news organizations would love nothing more than to incite riots so that they can report on those as well.
When will Americans learn that mainstream media has an agenda? That agenda may just be to create social discord, so there is something more interesting to report on tomorrow….
Now watch the following video – Decide for yourself. Do you have all the information?
Don’t get me wrong, this video is one-sided too (in a different direction). But blend this information with what you already know and open your eyes to the whole truth.
