TV NEWS FAILED EVERYONE IN THE ZIMMERMAN CASE

RALEIGH, NC:  Broadcast coverage was relentless during and after the nationally televised trial of George Zimmerman for the death of Trayvon Martin.  Veteran journalist and college lecturer Doug Spero, a Dunlop Media associate, monitored the output - and couldn't believe what he saw.

"What we have had here is an acute case of agenda-style infotainment," Spero wrote in a nationally published op-ed piece.  "Pioneering TV journalists Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite would, no doubt, be horrified. "   Courtesy The Christian Science Monitor.
