Media Watch: "White Guy" Zimmerman vs. "Six Bored Cincinnati Teens"

I'm still trying to process why Trayvon Martin's regrettable death was magnified and "Americanized" into some kind of national event.

Why, for example, was this crime not elevated to a national event?

Authorities say the Cincinnati-area man who was badly beaten by six teens almost a year ago in a Cincinnati suburb has died. 
Pat Mahaney, 46, died yesterday in the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, said Julie Wilson, spokeswoman for the Hamilton County prosecutor’s office. 
The six teens, all 13 or 14, injured Mahaney in August and told police they did it because they were bored and looking for something to do.  
Mahoney, a white guy, was returning home with a six-pack of beer. The six teens were black. You won't hear this from the media.

Why? On what criteria does the media magnify one event, stressing race at every opportunity (to the point of misrepresenting Zimmerman's race and fabricating false audios of Zimmerman), while religiously avoiding the mention of race in other instances?

Does this not make the left-wing media de facto racist and engaged in something other than disinterested reporting?

Please keep comments civil.

read the bear on this site. the whole Zimmerman thing was elevated to the level it was because people are stupid and become more so everyday. we do not have to worry about overpopulation because soon the brain power required to breathe will have been bread out of the terminally stupid. old white guy says so.

The Martin tragedy got rolling after President Obama's remarks. His "my son" comments" turned the nation on.
Certainly moved the Nations attention away from his screw ups now didn't it?
