I have been rightfully chastised for being critical of the press. The Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman trial is one of the reasons that I am so harsh. The press has portrayed Trayvon Martin as an altar boy and George Zimmerman as a neo-Nazi. In all probability neither is true. This has turned simple shooting into a national racial incident. Even the president has fanned the flames by proclaiming “if I had a son he would look like Trayvon Martin.” As the case draws to a close the nation braces for riots. Is this honest reporting?
