    Sunday's “Justice-For-Trayvon” march held by the New Black Panther Party was attended by a woman holding a sign reading: “Racist and Proud.” Several media outlets incorrectly identified the woman as a "George Zimmerman supporter," and the story took off, providing the left with supposed evidence of racism among those who believe Zimmerman was not guilty. However, an interview with Breitbart News at the Houston rally itself proved that she was an anti-Zimmerman demonstrator attempting to use sarcasm to prove her point.
    The Houston Chronicle’s Jayme Fraser wrote of the woman pictured above: “At one point, Renee Vaughan of Austin mocked protesters by chanting, "We're racist. We're proud. We're better 'cause we're white." The language of the article was somewhat clumsy, allowing other media outlets to jump to the wrong conclusion.
    The New York Daily News’ Philip Caulfield used the following caption for the above photo, from the Associated Press: “A George Zimmerman supporter holds a sign during a counter-demonstration of activist Quanell X's group march in the River Oaks community in Houston on Sunday.” He also wrote: "One woman in the Zimmerman group held a sign that said, 'We're racist & proud,'" distorting the Chronicle story significantly.

    just shows that some of these journalism college graduates probably submitted a written thesis with no actual research done, and the board did not review the thesis.
    lol.
    in short, most "media" are brain-dead.
