Of Interest 2013-07-22 (Mendacity for Power III)

Bill Whittle has an excellent video on the media's mendacious behavior surrounding the Trayvon Martin case. It will take ten minutes. Watch it. It's quite good. What power did this mendacity buy the media? The power to shape the narrative in order to "change the world".  Guys, that's editorial, not news, and you are not supposed to distort the facts (by carefully editing audio to make Zimmerman sound racist, for example). But hey, it's good to be King, right?
