CofCC in the news over Trayvon Martin shooting.
MAJOR UPDATE: The sister station of Fox Orlando has broken their silence. Earlier this evening, Fox Tampa Bay aired the interview with the witness who called 911. Even though the interview is now twenty-five days old, they pretend like it is brand new. The anchorwoman even describes the witness as someone “we have not heard from yet.”
On March 21st, CofCC National Board member Kyle Rogers wrote a bombshell expose on the way the media was intentionally mishandling the Trayvon Martin shooting. The article would go on to become an internet sensation and wreck the media’s propaganda train.
This AP article was syndicated in at least 33 different newspaper including the Washington Post, Denver Post, San Fransisco Chronicle, Bloomington, IN Pantograph, the Ocala, Florida Star Banner, the Sarasota, FL Herald-Tribune, the LA Daily Breeze, LA Daily News, Contra Costa Times, Brandon, Manitoba Sun, and a few news sites like MyFox Philadelphia, KATU Protland, OR, and more.
The Examiner.com article by Kyle Rogers went on to get nearly 200,000 facebook shares! It has been viewed over 500,000 times. It ranks among the most popular articles on Examiner.com of all time. A few days after this AP article came out, Kyle Rogers was told by a producer at CNN that his article changed the national discourse on the Trayvon Martin shooting.
Kyle Rogers blogs at Examiner.com and is also a national board member of the Council of Conservative Citizens. He wrote a post for Examiner asking questions about the facts that have been reported in mainstream media to this point.
The post has gotten more than 12,000 Facebook shares.
“Almost all news items are written solely from the point of view of the grieving family,” Rogers wrote. “The media also fills their articles with outdated baby-faced pictures of Trayvon. Very few include that he was a towering 6’2″ football player. Is the media really reporting the news, or is this classic agitation/propaganda to advance a political agenda?”
Contacted by The Associated Press, Rogers defended his position further.
“It is much more than a rush to judgment,” he wrote in an e-mail to the AP. “The media has intentionally hammered a grossly distorted version of what happened to advance a political agenda.”
