Straw Dogs
On so-called “Media Bias”

Twitchy.com posted this demotivational pic on its website along with the following:

Recognize these two people? If you don’t, we’ll help you out. The man on the left is George Zimmerman, the man accused of murdering the boy on the right, Trayvon Martin. The mainstream media won’t show you these two photos because they convey a message that no one else wants to take into consideration.[emphasis mine]

OR… it’s because the media can verify that the people in those photos are in fact the correct George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin; the mugshot coming from the Sanford Police Dept. and the photos of Trayvon coming from Martin’s family.

The media don’t go trolling on Facebook looking for juicy photos of murder victims/suspects; they stick with what they can quickly verify. And there’s always the chance that the Trayvon Martin whose profile you got your pic from is not the same Trayvon Martin who was shot and killed in the altercation by Zimmerman.

Ironically, the post on twitchy.com displays a different kind of bias: confirmation bias.
