From Serious to Sensationalism: Zimmerman Trial Shows Where Journalism Has Gone Since O.J. | Mediaite: "Approximately 11,000 black Americans have been murdered since Trayvon Martin was killed by George Zimmerman back in February of 2012.
And almost all—about 94 percent—were taken by members of their own race.
Yet here was America on a summer Saturday night in July, all glued to the cable news networks, watching the not-so-surprising not guilty verdict for George Zimmerman being announced to the world. Unlike the other 11,000, this murder was different, you see, because the media had succeeded in turning a self-declared Hispanic like Zimmerman into a guy whiter than Tim Tebow."
