George Zimmerman is the victim of both Trayvon Martin and the American media. Zimmerman was at least able to deal with Martin and the threat he posed, the biased media is going to be a much more difficult threat to confront. This is because the media, which treated Zimmerman as guilty and even tried to influence the court to hang this innocent man, still believes that “advocacy journalism” has a place in the newsroom. This event should be seen as a warning to all journalists of the dangers of “advocacy journalism” in which their coverage was more in the nature of a lynch mob with the journalists as vigilantes.
