Long time charter, first time submitter!
I saw this chart on HuffPo, detailing the late response of the national media to the Trayvon Martin death. You often cite encouraging dialogue as motive for your charts, and the case is rife with dialogue about racial profiling, vigilantism, and gun laws.

If you are unfamiliar with the case, part of me is envious, because it has been eating away at the part of my brain that holds out hope for humanity and the ability to be empathetic to those with differing world views for weeks. However, please do risk your bliss by reading up and consider signing this petition. 

For more on Fox News’ coverage (or lack there of) of the case, check out our story.

Ailes is angry about an Associated Press report that 29 worshipers were killed by a suicide bomber in Baghdad’s largest Sunni mosque during prayers. “How do we know they were worshiping?” he demands. “I think the AP is so far over the hill, they’ve become left wing, antiwar.

In this week’s Newsweek, Roger Ailes talks about Fox’s quite “course correction” following Glenn Beck’s rants over Obama being racist and Sarah Palin being touted as the GOP’s savior. Ailes even directed his people to tone things down following the Gabrielle Giffords shooting. But don’t mistake him for a political operative—fostering friction is good for business.
