After commenting on Issac Bailey's column in your Sunday edition, there is yet another article in The Sun News written by Kathleen Parker (Washington Post) about maternal instinct. As a mother, she probably does know about maternal instinct.
However, why would one compare the maternal instincts of Sybrina Fulton to testimony from George Zimmerman's father or uncle, neither of whom had his first name mentioned. Did Mrs. Parker miss the fact that Mrs. Zimmerman testified or did she hear all she wanted to hear?
I watched both Mrs. Fulton and Mrs. Zimmerman testify and each had the same maternal instinct that recognized the voice on the audio recording as her son. However, Mrs. Parker and the Washington Post would have you believe that only Mrs. Fulton’s maternal instinct is worthy of reporting.
Is it not journalist malpractice to withhold the fact that Mrs. Zimmerman testified in the same manner as Mrs. Fulton? The Washington Post prides itself on informing people through education and media. However, informing people with a biased article robs a fine paper of trust and respect.
Never miss a local story.
I would hope The Sun News editors would carefully choose non-biased columnists to insert in the local newspaper.
