How sad we can't rely on anything in the media anymore. We don't know the facts. We weren't there. We aren't the jury, judge, or executioner. We don't know what really happened. The amount of pure speculation and outright fabrication related to this whole thing is just disgusting. It was a sad thing that happened. It's even more sad that there is no way Zimmerman will get a fair trial.
I don't get it, what does NBC have to gain from this? Although I think he's a retard and he's going to prison, I hope he or his family sue and win for this type of bullshit.

WTF am I supposed to watch before work in the mornings now?

That's pretty much why I believe nothing in the news.
I do what I can. : ) Yeah. That's just dishonest even by NBC's standards..... which are similar to the standards of your average identity thief as far as honesty goes. I don't believe anything I read or watch. It's impossible to stay informed without doing your own fact checking. You listen to MSNBC you'd think all white people hate black people and all Republicans are heartless rich people. You listen to Fox and you'd think all democrats are liberal environmental extremists. I do think Fox at least makes a half-hearted attempt to be honest and somewhat balanced. When discussing an issue, Fox usually brings in a Dem to talk about the other side of it. On Msnbc it's only one side or Chris Mathews brings on someone who doesn't know what they're doing so he can spend a whole segment interrupting that person and trying to act like he won an argument. I do watch Fox if I want to hear about what's going on and I do agree with most of what Fox says.

I guess they gain a "better" story.

Sleep in a bit or show up early and leave early.

NBC does have an agenda. They want to stir up racial tension in order to stop blacks voting Republican in November. It's not a coincidence that it's an election year. If they can feed the narative of white racism against blacks, blacks will be less likely to vote for the obviously racist white Republican nominee. They'll also point back to this when Republicans stood against this kind of unfair treatment and say that Republicans don't care about Trayvon, they're just trying to stick up for their white friends. Zimmerman is not white, he's a registered hispanic voter.

Did you know 49 people were shot, 10 killed, in Chicago alone on the same weekend Zimmerman was ethnically cleansing his neighborhood?

Including a 6-year-old girl who was caught in the crossfire of a gang shooting...

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/l...,3600888.story



oh wait, she was white hispanic and a black person killed her, not news worthy; just justice. You won't hear Obama speaking out about her. If he had a daughter, she would not look like Aliyah.

Once you organize people, they’ll keep advancing from issue to issue toward the ultimate objective: people power. We’ll not only give them a cause, we’ll make life goddamn exciting for them again — life instead of existence. We’ll turn them on...”
– Saul Alinsky, mentor to Obama.

btw blaen:



ABC News has re-digitized video of George Zimmerman taken shortly after Trayvon Martin's shooting.

The video was unveiled as an exclusive this morning on "Good Morning America." ABC was the first news organization to show the original tape.

Reporter Matt Gutman said the clearer video shows "what appear to be a pair of gashes or welts on George Zimmerman's head."

So I read through the initial 911 transcript (transcribed by MotherJones.com) and Trayvon's tweets (@NO_LIMIT_NIGGA).

I am unpersuaded from my initial impressions of this case.

Are those gashes, welts, or just a really bad hairstyle Brainy?
