Have you noticed that Fox News is extremely biased for Zimmerman?

With every sentence Fox News speaks bias for George Zimmerman, and for all credible witnesses for prosecution they try to discredit them, including a medical examiner. Fox mentions witnesses for defense like John Good, but don't speak of witnesses for prosecution llike Selma Mora who said Zimmerman was on top of Trayvon martin and then she saw him get up and walk after gunshot. She said Zimmerman "was wearing patterned jacket between blacks and reds". Three others testified that they saw someone who appeared to be Zimmerman on top of Martin during incident. Several were close enough to hear struggle, but none of them heard profanity death threat that Zimmerman says Martin made moments before he shot him. SOURCE: Reuters June 27, 2013


I'm a white conservative but can't stand the lies in this case, it was murder, it's obvious why hot head Zimmerman with past violence/arrests did not leave a mark on Martin. His self defense. Martin got away once by punching Zimmerman but was tackled again and pinned down.


JONATHAN, all conservatives have is Fox which is thinly disguised liberal. I dont think most conservatives are racist, but think they are so for 2nd amendment and their guns they want to believe it's Zimmerman, there are racists in both parties. Martin DNA not found on gun put away George!

Update 2:

JOTACAR, Rupert Murdoch is more left than right, he like Obama is a corporate globalist, there are only three conservative hosts on Fox News: Neil Cavuta, Shawn hannity and Greg Gutfield.

Update 3:

BRETT, yes other stations are even more liberal. If Zimmerman knocked trayvon down and held him like he told police he did, he could be careful not to leave marks, not to strike him, just rolling over to hold him except for when Trayvon punched him and got free to run away.

Update 4:

SAM, it's not just Fox. Try doing a search on Zimmerman and Martin, you will come up mostly with info on defense witnesses and John Good, not much on witnesses for prosecution unless they discredit them.

    I like Fox news. I'm not a conservative. I don't belong to any political party. I'm a white woman. Fox news has disappointed me on this case. They do seem biased on this case..not all of them, but many on Fox news do. They are 90% all for Zimmerman. I think they are wrong. Zimmerman stalked Trayvon Martin, armed with a gun. ''He'' is the reason this teen is dead. Zimmerman is to blame, he instigated all of this. CNN, MSNBC etc, are more biased than Fox on most everything else though.

    Yes, i notice the fox news appears to be a zimmerman supporter, while cnn (especially nancy grace and others) are martin supporters. I usually dont like fox news, but i do think they got it right supporting zimmerman this time. See fox's interview with alan dershowitz at youtube, and he thought one year back that zimmerman was overcharged for 2nd degree, and he is a famous havard law proessor who had argued many many court case in front of US supreme court. In his view, the florida DA was criminal overcharging zimmerman.

    John Good is a very credible witness, because the crime took place immediately outside his backyard, and he could clearly see the red clothing of zimmerman at bottom the first time he open his patio door, and zimmerman's yelling directly towards john good and the voice wasnt away from john good if trayon was yelling because the guy with black clothing had his back towards john good, while the other witnesses's condos are too far away to clearly see the color of clothing in the dark and therefore not credible. Mora saw zimmerman on top of martin only AFTER the shooting, when zimmerman got up and bent over martin to spread his hands, and there was no evidence that martin's head had scratched the concrete pavement. This is confirmed by john good when he looked down from his bathroom window upstairs after hearing the shot seeing zimmerman (with red clothing) above martin after the shot, but zimmerman (red clothing) was yelling at the botoom towards john good for help, while martin was having the MMA style ground and pound when earlier when john good opened his partio door downstairs. Beside, zimmernan had his bleeding back head to prove it, while martin hadnt any back injury other than a bullet shot and bruised knuckle for pounding zimmerman.

    So, the issue is whether a person or YOU would or should shoot if being beaten up (broken nose & heading hitting a concrete pavement) in a dark alley.

    It's kinda like how ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, etc. are all biased towards Martin. There is no one impartial to this.

    It's not murder though. You call Zimmerman a hot head, yet you have no way to prove that Zimmerman followed Martin with the ill will, spite, or depraved mind to kill him. Up until then, it's self-defense. BTW, if Martin was tackled and pinned, why didn't the autopsy find anything showing that? Certainly it would have left a mark on him.

    That is free speech. They are not under some sort of charter to provide balanced and informed reporting like the BBC, they are a commercial enterprise and their viewers want to see the white guy get away with shooting the black guy.

    Its not actually racism. Just a business decision.

    Fox news is biased towards Zimmerman and CNN is biased towards Martin. All that matters is what the jury thinks. I, myself, believe Zimmerman is innocent. He shot because of self-defense.

    Have you noticed how biased the liberal media is towards trayvon Martin

  • 8 years ago

    The Fox News Network is a disgrace.

    If you know anything about its senile, evil, right-wing extremist, Australian

    owner, Rupert Murdoch, you won't be surprised at the way it ignores the

    truth in order to present his twisted view of the world.

    This is a very dangerous man.

    I suggest watching Communist News Network if you have that opinion.

    It's about time a network took Zimmerman's side.
