MSNBC Audience Cheers Judge Denying Zimmerman Motion for Acquittal

As NewsBusters has been reporting for months, the folks at MSNBC have all but convicted George Zimmerman for the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

On Friday, viewers got to see more of MSNBC’s biases regarding this trial when a live audience watching the Ed Show at the Essence Festival in New Orleans broke out in applause as host Ed Schultz announced the judge in the case had denied defense’s motion for Zimmerman’s acquittal (video follows with commentary):

So MSNBC executives actually feel comfortable with their commentators reporting on this trial in front of an obviously biased live audience hoping for a conviction.

That this station is allowed to call itself a news network is a disgrace to journalism.
