Man that's a tinfoil hat phraseology bingo in one thread title.
Well, I was trying to get your attention. But, honestly, what they're putting on-air IS
agitprop. CNN and Fox are presenting both sides, MSLSD, to put it mildly, is not.
But does it matter?

MSNBC crushed in Zimmerman ratings race
By DYLAN BYERS | 7/15/13 12:12 PM EDT
MSNBC's ratings woes came into sharp relief on Monday with the release of the preliminary numbers for the Zimmerman verdict.
In the 10-11 p.m. hour on Saturday night, when the verdict in, Fox News had 3,682,000 total viewers; CNN had 3,407,000 total viewers and won the coveted demo with 1,716,000 viewers aged 25-to-54.
In the same hour, MSNBC had 1,298,000 total viewers -- about one-third of Fox's total -- and a mere 510,000 viewers in the demo. (These are preliminary numbers; finals are in tomorrow.)
Despite branding itself as "the place for politics," MSNBC went wall-to-wall on the Zimmerman trial after watching its ratings tank in recent months. It doesn't seemed to have helped.
