Quote of the Day: No Winners Edition

Ultimately, it is the job of the media to give straight, objective coverage of any story.

Whatever the final verdict on Zimmerman, the media is clearly guilty of playing on the most primitive racial divisions in our society to fuel racial animosity and boost ratings.

There are no winners here. -Juan Williams

    I don’t watch TV, but I was eating at a Burger King and could not avoid hearing the three talking heads on FoxTV. FoxTV played clips from the trial, and the trio commented on them. The woman journalist (I don’t know her name.) was as blatantly biased towards the prosecution as any super-liberal idiot at CBS. The two men seemed to be commentators and not journalists. They, at least, listened to what was said, and provided reasoned comments. It’s interesting (though not surprising) that the journalist was hyperemotional and heavily biases.
