LETTER: Media creates controversy unnecessarily
To the Editor:
The George Zimmerman case was just something that happens every day, and there was a trial based on the evidence. Zimmerman was found not guilty, and that should have been the end of it.
But because the man killed was a black man, the media couldn't leave it alone. They have gotten a lot of people with various opinions on the air, till they made it into a national civil rights case that could lead to a lot of trouble for a lot of people.
Of course controversy is news, and I think in a lot of cases, the way the media handles the news creates a lot of controversy over agreements that could be settled reasonably by some reasonable people without help from the media bringing in a lot of people with controversial opinions.
