Why are TV talk shows still blatantly favoring Trayvon Martin?

The case is finished George Zimmerman is not found guilty, but TV shows like the View and Daily Show still blatantly side with Travyon Martin and continue bringing up the topic that Zimmerman should be found guilty. They also only give one side of the story and they continue to show pictures of Trayvon Martin when he was a kid. I can't believe how biased TV media shows are.

I'm standing back and looking at this case and I'm going alright it's both of their fault. George because he followed Trayvon and probably didn't make it clear that he's the neighborhood watchman, but it's also Trayvon's fault because he attacked Zimmerman when he could have hung up the phone and call 911 himself.

Because common sense, and evidence points to this being manslaughter at the very least

No one believes George didn't cause the confrontation. The state didnt prove it, but no one beleives George chased Trayvon Martin, changed his mind, then Trayvon laid a trap for George(which seems strange cause Trayvon would have to have sixth sense that George would continue following him)

Everyone knows that George started the confrontation, despite what the verdict was, that isnt even arguable.

George because he followed Trayvon and probably didn't make it clear that he's the neighborhood watchman, but it's also Trayvon's fault because he attacked Zimmerman when he could have hung up the phone and call 911 himself.

George is the ONLY one at fault. Saying Martin attacked him without any hint of the evidence is purely speculation

We KNOW George followed Trayvon, pursued him, and had a gun.

Trayvon we have no idea if he attacked George, thats merely you saying that cause you WANT to believe George wasn't entirely at fault, leave that elsewhere.

Secondly, Trayvon RAN from George. George clearly chased him and caught up to him, thats the only explanation.

The injuries on Georges face could have come from anytime, particularly when they were wrestling and George was liklely acting like a cop and trying to Restrain trayvon rather than outright fight him, and Trayvon was fighting for his life.

Either favor some kid who acted out of fear, or favor some weird dude with a hero complex

Guess which gets you better ratings

For starters, if they want to show pics of Trayvon as an adult, they'd had to travel to a future, parallel universe in which he didn't died, and come back with them.

Secondly, anyone with common sense and a little bit of heart would agree that Zimmerman should be found guilty, so it's no surprise that's what everyone's side is.

Zimmerman was acquitted because of the SYG law. They don't like the law, so of course they are also not going to agree with the acquittal.

If the SYG law wasn't there, he would have been found guilty.

Or they could show Trayvons more recent pics as a teenager and not as an innocent little boy.

Because of reasons like this article: http://bit.ly/112BLCA bring up.

Zimmerman was clearly a racist, and that was the prime motivator for him choosing to approach Martin to begin with. Why shouldn't they talk about it? It doesn't matter if the trial ended. It was a major injustice and revealed a massive flaw in the legal system; when riots all over the US erupt due to the death of a black teen, then something needs to be reevaluated.

They can talk about it, but how about this Zimmerman was acquitted, so let's look at this from both sides rather than stating how wrong the jury was in letting Zimmerman go. How about bringing up the facts that Trayvon may also be to blame for the incident when he decided to attack Zimmerman.

Also Trayvon made some racist comments when he called Zimmerman a "cracka" can we talk about that? Or do we only bring up one side to this story?
