One thing seems for certain, the potential jurors in the George Zimmerman trial are not big fans of the media.
Yesterday the potential jurors toom a number of swipes while giving their impressions of news outlets.
A woman known as E-73 was asked if she watched Fox News Channel. "Not if I can help it," she said. But she didn't watch MSNBC, either.
A woman known as M-75 said she watched Fox News in the morning, but she couldn't remember anchor names. (So much for making a connection.) She didn't watch Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity, the biggest Fox News stars. She didn't read newspapers, either.
A man known as B-72 watched Central Florida News 13 and CNN, but said he doesn't pay attention to the news because it drags him down. And he didn't care about the Zimmerman case because it didn't involve anyone he knows. "After a while, I got sick of hearing it," he said. He added that he tries to avoid the media because he doesn't want to be brainwashed.
