    I found it pretty easy to find those articles.

    They are both posted by major international news services (even if we stretch the definition to include FN)

    Why were they so difficult for you to find, so much so that you had to make a new thread about it?

    :confused:

    You aren't going to find them posted here for sure. You certainly aren't going to find the media making a big deal out them either.

    I am not going to find them here? You just posted them...:confused:...I just did.

    They were published by one of the largest news wire services on teh planet (which means it gets reprinted in hundreds and hundreds of newspapers and other outlets). If that's not "the media" then nothing is.

    So, it appears you are demonstrably wrong on both counts.

    Excellent work by Jesse Jackson freeing American servicemen and hostages when Government wasn't able to.

    How typical of you to focus on the something else besides the point of the article.

    More detail than most other articles rehashing the same five points.. Still not sure why this deserves it's own thread.

    See what? A wire service article? No, they generally don't hold up print articles for viewers to read in most newscasts. That's for sure. Or is there some other point you're trying to make?




    ??? I think we established the point of this thread was that we couldn't find these articles, which is why you put it in the title - or else you would have put them in the other thread - correct? :confused:

    I believe both of these articles have been posted in the Trayvon thread.

    Yeah. All those damned liberals defending Trayvon just because he's black. How dare they oppose the (half)master race?

    What's actually troubling is the attacks on people who are standing up for Zimmerman. Even worse is the people who are undecided and would like to hear factual evidence that hasn't been made available to the public nor THE DEFENDENT, are being attacked as well.

    I left that thread a long time ago as well because it came down to 2 guys standing up for Zimmerman and everyone else bashing them and calling them racists. Say what you will about those posters and your opinion of them, but not everyone is a racist just because they don't agree with the media's portrayal of the suspect.

    While this thread may seem unnecessary to you, the contents are actually quite valuable. You may have been able to find them by searching, but this information was not reported on the major news networks or newspapers. They put it on the front page when it fit their race-tensions agenda, but when there is evidence that could disprove that theory it's way in the back behind a story of a cat who can juggle.

    Then pay closer attention. There are several who disagree with the Zimmerman defenders, but haven't called them racists.

    I will say that gwayneco posts as much if not more about the race than anyone else in this thread. It's crazy. He's all up in arms because some people dared to think race might be an issue. What is it with some folks that go crazy when race is brought up?

    Like I said, I got out a long time ago. Once I (so I thought) had made my point clear that no one knew either way what happened that night, and until the police or the prosecutors decided to release all the information (which they didn't put in the affidavit) everything argued was all based on hearsay, misinformation by the media, and assumptions.

    You're right, there are people who didn't acuse people of racism. There were many who got very personal with those who disagreed with them.

    What is it with people going crazy when the race card is unjustly played? Played so hard in fact that the chances of a fair trial are questioned?

    They are links to major News Networks. How about the fact that this was on MSNBC?

    Edit: I'm not sure how people can defend someone that followed and killed an unarmed teenager who was walking home from the store.
