    It's the biggest, hottest news story in media.

    Are they not a media company interesting in keeping the populate updated on the latest and greatest and hottest news?

    Any of you wager to guess why such little coverage for the biggest, most powerful media organization on the world?

    It's not a big story. It's only a big story to racist liberals. After all, the two black boys who poured gasoline and set a 13 year old white boy on fire wasn't exactly news to CNN or MSNBC. Black mobs beating up white fair goers at the Wisconsin State Fair never even got a mention. If Fox News doesn't go in for race baiting (and it's not even race since Zimmerman is hispanic), good for them.

    I agree. If the dead teen had been white this story wouldn't be a blip on anyones radar.

    Typical race baiting.

    I did see a good segment on O'Reilly yesterday on it though. So it is getting coverage. Hell the local news down here in Florida was full of it the other day.

    A black teen is killed, some white guy has to pay. A white teen is killed, we're better off with one less racist.

    When the black people of the US care as much about black kids killing other black kids, I'll pay attention. But they don't. They really don't. It's like its to be expected. It only matters if someone can make political hay off the issue.

    It's frankly disgusting.

    How the fuck do you know??

    Do you have such a boring life that you sit around counting how many times Fox runs your race baiting stupid stories?

    A kid got killed.... perhaps it was negligent homicide, perhaps it was a racist murder.... PERHAPS it was self defense.

    We dont now yet, but you are ready to fry a hispanic guy. Why? Are you a racist too???

    Jeez Marc, get a fukin life man!

    Big news in Florida; the mass of differing reports adds to the confusion. There WAS a primary Tuesday, and other competing news.

    I'm curious Claudette, can you define this "typical race baiting" thing for me please?

    I don't quite understand exactly what you mean or are referring to by it.

    Thanks.

    The killer may not have identified himself as "Hispanic". His name gives no identification of ethnic affiliation.
