And then they apologize about it like it is no big deal. The civil lawsuit that will follow this case may change how the large media networks cover cases like this in the future. I believe in freedom of speech but there are boundries, especially when it comes to reporting the news. Funny that the big story now is how different networks selectively presented the facts to make Zimmerman appear guilty and Martin appear innocent (literally and metaphorically).

There is no doubt that certain media outlets and several talking heads went way over the line with this and NBC's apology was pathetic. Its really nothing new though. The liberal media has been distorting the facts for a long time. Whether it was this case or something else. Im not saying they are the only ones but they are the worst ones.

Never let the truth get in the way of a good story, right?

Thats funny as hell, but truth be told, I still expect the media to alter photos of Zimmerman to make him look more white and less Hispanic! All they have to do is brighten the photos a bit, and you know its probably already happened somewhere by media liberals, or it will happen.

Maybe they will also darken the photos of Trayvon to make him look even more black!

At first most media outlets didnt even show pictures of Zimmerman, but they did call him a white guy, while repeatedly showing pictures of Trayvon.

They are sooooooooooo predictable!!!

The good news is so few people are watching NBC, that nobody noticed. (Nobody that matters anyway.)

The intelligent folks are all watching FOX News.

And the 20% of the nation that is behind Obama no matter what is spread out between MSLSD, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN and Current TV amoung other options.

20% dont' pay any mind to the news at all.

And the 60% left all watch FOX News for it's fair and balanced reporting for the most part. (However, I'm not happy they keep using that 13 year old pic of Trayvon in his Hollister shirt... As if that's the kid that was shot? NOT.)

At least Zimmerman is now being shown closer to who he really was at the time of the shooting, and not a 5 year old mug shot from at totally unrelated event.

Personally, I'd be happy if we just used Trayvon's own Twitter and Facebook photos.

They show who this kid was at the time of his attack on Zimmerman, and the resulting act by Zimmerman to defend his life, and the death of yet another punk kid who should have known better, had he been raised by parents who were worth the clothes they wear and air they breath.

I'm really supprised more folks don't point out that this kid, Trayvon, was on this THIRD suspension from school, and still had his cell phone? Still had freedom to go out for skittles and tea?

WTF is up with the parents? My kid gets suspended from school, she is in bed at 9pm, after doing her homework, cleaning the house, and doing the dishes. She has NO cell phone rights. She loses her car unless she goes to work. No chatting on the phone with a boyfriend while wondering around in the dark of night, that's for sure.

The reality that Trayvon's dad is a cocaine drug dealer/addict/pusher is daunting, what's next? His mom's a prostitute?

At this point, nothing about this case would suprise me.

From my experience, many Liberals dont believe in punishing their kids, because thats not fun and doesnt feel good. What your talking about is personal responsibility, and many libs dont believe in that either. They also dont believe in value judgements or behavior judgements. They dont seem to want African Americans to learn personal responsibilty, because then they wouldnt be victims anymore.......

My wife had MSNBC on over the weekend and I had to resist the urge to throw something at the TV. They had comprised a panel of "experts" to review to facts in this case thus far and it just angered me. One of the experts was the leader of another neighborhood watch program, so what exactly is he an expert on? He trashed Zimmerman and how he reacted, but neither he nor any of the other experts were in his shoes getting their heads smashed against the ground. Nobody has pointed out that Zimmerman only took one shot, and at close range, during a struggle. Instead they are all calling it a cold blooded murder, they should be calling it an accident at worst.

The only person of interest that they had on was a defense lawyer familiar with the stand your ground law defense, and he admitted that it would be a difficult conviction on the air. I asked my wife why hasn't the media been interviewing the real experts in the law, people who can shed some light on this case? Instead CNN invites Lionel Richie to talk about being black in america. What does he know about what this case, and what does he offer in the form of insight? Nothing. The fact that the media has shied away from having lawyers or legal experts appear as guests is an indication that they don't want their viewers to know what the odds are in court. They are more focused on presenting people who will speculate, add bias opinion, and who will ultimately only throw more gas on the fire.

Why other american's can't see this for what it is, is laughable. And yes this isn't the only time they have done this. I think it is fine for a network or anchor to have a political bias as long as they present the facts responsibly and not only opinion and commentary. If the media can't depict this case (or any other case) accurately then don't report on it. They want to obtain the ratings and push their agenda at the same time, they can't have their cake and eat it too.

I swear it's like you're reading my mind at times.
This is exactly what I just posted on another forum.

"Trayvon was out for a stroll that night after dark, buying himself a treat, talking to a friend on the phone, possibly under the influence, acting like he didn't have a care in the world. After a third suspension from school, WTF are the parents thinking? I asked my Mother yesterday if I had done that would have been grounded for a month? She said "No...a year"."

His Dad has done more than just drugs. There are 8 cases here dating back to '95 including indecent exposure/prostitution, reckless driving, driving with suspended license, trespassing, and multiple drug offenses.
Miami-Dade County Clerk Criminal Justice and Civil Infraction Cases

I'd predict Trayvon had a whole lifetime of poor decisions yet to make.

Was George a Racist or was he Colorblind when it came to Justice?

The only way "Trayvon was hunted down like a dog" as claimed by some Biotch DC leader, is if Zimmerman had used a sniper rifle, ATK night vision optic, and shot him from his home window.

Or even more comical, had had his AR (Assuming he has one) 250 rounds of ammo in magazines, a pistol strapped to his outer thigh, combat carry, and was off to the grocery store in that full combat setup...

Then he decided, "Hey, who's that "blankety-blank" in a hoodie? I'd better get out and hunt him down like a dawg...

No, wait, I'll call 911, and then hunt him down like a dawg... Surely that will improve my dawg hunting chances of having the LEO's show up, so I'll get to shoot that dude, since I'm out hunting...

Dawg hunting.

Laughable is what the Liberals and Black Racists are purporting us all to believe at this moment in history.

We have a guy who was driving out of his neighborhood for groceries.
Saw a 6'3" tall person in a hoodie lurking around.
He called 911 and said that there have been lots of break-ins, and this guy looks like he's up to no good, just wondering around, and looks like he might be on something.
The 911 operator asked for a discription, and ONLY then you mention that the guy looks black.
You try for a better view, but the guy is evading you.
The 911 operator says "we don't need you to do that"
You say "okay."
You are on a side walk and out of your vehicle at this point, but have to get a location/address for the PD, so you walk to the street, get that, and then are walking back on the sidewalk to your vehicle..
When the guy in the hoodie approaches you, says "You got a problem?"
You say "no."
Guy in the hoodie says "Now you do." and punches you in the nose, then jumps on you as you fall down, and pounds your head on the ground....


What you going to do hot shot? (Pop quiz.)

Hell, Lionel Richey would have shot this punk kid to defend his life too. (As would anyone here with a pistol on them, as George Zimmerman was able to do, as provided by the Second Amendment, and the Concealed Carry laws in his State.)

What part of this don't the Liberals/Black Racists get?

It's a justified defense shooting, and it's why Zimmerman was not arrested, but he was taken in, in hand cuffs, questioned, and then released.

The wittness who states that he saw the guy in the red being beat up by the guy in the hoodie confirms Zimmermans claim he was attacked.

The question that NOBODY in the media has asked, is why Trayvon felt he was justified to attack, hit and then beat on Zimmerman?

What a dumb punk kid in my opinion. (Clearly learned poor life choices from his family/father/mother etc.)

Want to change this?

It's EASY.

Start teaching these kids that being a punk is not cool. It's not a good life choice. It's not smart to attack others, and it's dang stupid to do drugs, skip school, throw out gang signs, wear clothes that look like gang bangers etc.

Want to live a nice life?

Don't act, dress or be a punk.
