CNN Examines Media Coverage of 2013′s Biggest Stories

On “CNN Newsroom” this morning, Carol Costello hosted a panel discussion about media coverage of two of the year’s biggest stories: the George Zimmerman trial and the Boston Marathon bombing.

The panel was made up of CNN senior media correspondent Brian Stelter, Steve Malzberg from the conservative Newsmax and Eric Boehlert from the liberal Media Matters. Although Boehlert mentioned Fox News’ coverage of the Zimmerman trial, the three mostly steered clear of mentioning CNN’s competitors by name. The panel also didn’t address CNN’s coverage of the two stories. Watch:
