"Don't worry, we may not have bread, but we do have racial circuses,"

brought to you live with occasional commercial interruptions by every network and news site in America.
Forget the bread, we've got a new OJ Simpson trial, except with the races reversed and a defendant without a whole lot of money who's already being lynched by a corrupt prosecutor looking to build a political career over his body. The Trayvon-Zimmerman trial may not be the trial of the century, but it can strive to be the trial of the election. One of those things that reminds black voters to vote along racial solidarity lines, reminds white voters to feel guilty about how racist our white hispanic country is and distracts everyone from the economy. The losers in this are everyone not named Barack Obama or Angela Corey, who will suddenly be the country's most famous prosecutor since Marcia Clark and the subject of adoring profiles from the media that fall just short of a tongue bath.-- Sultan Knish / Daniel Greenfield

Your Say

For all I can read, the case looks weak. But think strategically. GZ has to be punished, as a warning to any others. They can't just let this go. They will drag it out as long as possible until the case is tossed. The punishment has been inflicted, his life is in ruins, and everyone else is on notice.

You can't let the people take charge of their own security, and you have to punish them when they make the inevitable mistakes. The cops may be doing a crappy job, and their political masters are p***ing away the money on stupid stuff: it's a ****ty deal, buddy, but it's the best you're gonna get, you try it yourself and we'll burn you.

If you are letting TV and radio peopel decide what you learn you are already on a sinking ship. I've been listening to podcasts exclusively for about 10 years. In my case, for convenience, they happen to be delayed one week. That delay means when I hear some expert making predictions I usually already know how things turned out, so I get an "immediate" credibility check on the experts. When some topic fills the news and every outlet is busy flogging the dead horse faster than their competition, I simply skip to the next program. I eventually hear podcasts with deeper depth and that depth helps me better understand the context of numerous subjects.

There is nothing on the news today that you need to hear today, other than tornado warnings. In fact, the less current the info you get the more understandable it is.

If you are consuming Lame Stream Media you deserve to be confused, angry, and misled. Just don't do it. With info it's better to go deep and wide than current. Do you really need to hear the 45th replay of the same story? No, you don't.
