Shooting in Florida

Is it true that fox isn't covering this?

If so it's no wonder half of my country lives in a bubble.

I don't watch Fox regularly, so I can't say. I just turned it on to check, and they were talking about Tom Hanks at a school party where there was a guy in blackface and an afro wig. The topic was whether it would hurt the White House. But, it's not hard to understand why they aren't talking about it.

Ok, I'm watching FOX right now. The lead story is Obama's visit to the solar power plant outside Las Vegas. There are complaints that there aren't enough employees, that solar power isn't efficient, that the taxes are too high, that Obama isn't supporting the Keystone pipeline enough. Well, it seems as if this show is about energy. The Pres or his rep makes a statement, and then they have an expert come on to contradict it. The banner running underneath is about a possible Syrian ceasefire, home sales and that Jeb Bush has endorsed Nitt Romney. Now, there's a special report about stocks, mental health in the military after the Afghan murders. There's now a report about the murderer they have holed up in Toulouse. May they all R.I.P.

Now, the story is about which candidate has the nicest wife. The commercial is coming on, and there is no indication that they will get to the FL story. I'm not going to keep watching, anyway.

GOP News would not know how to handle the story, even if they tried. They are entertainment, hysteria, and I hope they stay around to herald the freedom this country was founded on!

People have the freedom to sniff glue too, I don't think it's anything to be proud of.

Steve's play by play of FOX is pretty good. I felt like I was there. Might be a good idea for a video weblog. :)

I watch them all. They're all covering it as a top story, and they're all doing a fairly decent job. The truth is nobody has all the facts of the situation yet.

A teen boy was shot by a neighborhood watch guy. The big question is whether it was self-defense or murder. There is a 9-11 call from a third party on which can be heard a call for help then a single shot. The dispute is as to whose voice it is calling for help. Very little factual information has yet been released.

Somehow chris left out that the kid was also black, armed with skittles and ice cream going home to watch a game.

Zimmerman chased him down and shot him even though the dispatcher told him not to follow the kid.

They also are saying there was possibly a racial slur murmured by the shootist.

That's true you could find the phone call on YouTube.

Also the police did nothing they didn't even interview witnesses.

Yes, thanks! I heard it on the radio but I thought that it was something else. They played the dispatch recording where Zimmerman is told not to pursue and from what I heard in the news it does sound like it was murder. I am also curious to know more.

so because the kid is black it must be racial? the shooter is spanish and white, the shooter also called cops 40 something times on people in the past few weeks what race were they? sounds like people are quick to pull a race issue again. Its a tragedy and the gun law their with shooting in self defense has made shootings rise, and this guy sounds like he was a paranoid nut calling cops so many times etc.

now an innocent kid is gone, sad shit, but before race is the issue lets make sure it was racially motivated,
