Grace Under Fire

While Toure and Piers Morgan compared sizes on CNN , Tracy Martin and Trayvon’s mother Sybrina Fulton appeared on Fox News to face Geraldo Rivera. Rivera loudly accused Trayvon’s parents of contributing to his murder by allowing him to wear a hoodie. Rivera apologized to the parents and they accepted on air. Trayvon’s Dad went on to let people know Trayvon had a hoodie on because it was raining and reinforced this was noted in the infamous 911 call Zimmerman made. The imminent arrest of Zimmerman falls on new evidence that the voice screaming in the 911 call was not Zimmerman but victim Trayvon. This account backs up the story the two witness have told in various reports that the screaming stopped when the gun fired. Florida is under more pressure to arrest Zimmerman as former President Bill Clinton and former Governor Jeb Bush both are blasting the case and calling for Zimmerman’s arrest. Slowly but surely justice is coming for Trayvon.

Unecessary Roughness

When Piers Morgan had Robert Zimmerman, Jr on his show many were critical on how Piers not being a journalist began to shine through. He didn’t ask the tough questions and it seemed more like a Fox News right-wing conversation a la Sara Palin then trying to find out how a teenage boy was murdered walking home. No one was louder than Pop Culture critic Toure and he and Piers had a spat back and forth on twitter. After taunting Piers convinced Toure to come on his show and the two acted liked to spoiled children arguing back and forth about their credentials and hurt feeling and none about the death of child. Journalism as we know it is dead, it’s unfortunate (I think about this a lot) but let’s stay focused at the task at hand. This isn’t about Toure or Piers it’s about a Florida family who will never see their child again and a man who still has not been arrested for murdering their child. Watch the pissing match below and tell us what you think in comments or @mediamyxx @akireshenri
