No … I’m not talking about whether George Zimmerman will get a fair trial in light of all the publicity surrounding him shooting Trayvon Martin. Rather, I’m wondering if Central Florida will ever get over the image we get from these high-profile trials. From Casey Anthony to Zimmerman, to viewers from around the world we must look like a strange planet.
This New York Times feature paints a scary picture of what we could be facing as media outlets begin jockeying for position to capture the public fascination with such trials. Perhaps we could avoid all this by letting readers and viewers cast “guilty” or “innocent” votes on message boards after reading their favorite tabloid.
