SANFORD -- Between 6 and 7 o'clock this morning, more than 400 media outlets had filed stories on the George Zimmerman murder trial with the focus squarely on jury selection expected to get under way today at the Seminole County Courthouse.

The stories range from the issue of race to security to the psyche of Sanford itself, with media outlets ranging from CNN to the Los Angeles Times and the smallest media outlet of them all, Headline Surfer, which as of 7:15 a.m. was at top of the food chain, though with far greater readership by the giant news outlets, the internet newspaper will likely fall far back into the pack soon.

Below are snapshots of the top-ranked stories just after 7 a.m.:
