We Report, You Decide

On Sean Hannity's bullshit show tonight, he introduced coverage of the Trayvon Martin murder trial by cautioning his viewers that FOX had to "bleep-out much of the testimony" of Rachel Jeantel, the 19-year-old girl who was on the phone with Martin when he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman.  

When questioned on the witness stand, the girl said Trayvon told her he was being followed by a "creepy-assed cracker."  On Sean Hannity's show however, this was translated as "creepy-assed [BLEEP]."  The girl's testimony was "bleeped" for saying "cracker" half a dozen more times, all the while with Hannity implying -- though he never actually said so -- that the word that was being bleeped was: "nigger."

Remarkably offensive misreporting. 

And people wonder why FOX News viewers are the dumbest and most misinformed in America.
