LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Liberal media’s new lows

Story Topics
Question of the Day

What has been the biggest debacle on Obama's watch?

View results

The liberal press and the usual, well-known race baiters have given top attention and headlines to the unfortunate fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and the recent acquittal of the accused, George Zimmerman ("Trayvon Martin's family has little chance for recourse in court," Web, July 15). As usual they have taken it way out of proper context.

There has been no mention, of course, of the enormous number of black-on-black killings that take place in many of the nation's inner cities on a weekly basis. Apparently the liberal press doesn't want poorly informed citizens ever to forget that there is dissension among blacks and whites.

You know that there are no longer any journalistic standards in place when audio recordings critical to this case are doctored or deleted so that one gets the "correct" view of the situation, when childhood pictures of the victim are used in court and when The New York Times describes the accused as being a "white Hispanic." What?

It seems the leftist press has sunk to new lows, even for it.
