"The mainstream media...have all but sparked
a race war, and have almost certainly made it impossible for Zimmerman to receive a fair trial if he ends up indicted for his actions that night."
"ESPN’s Wesley Morris is not
in a position to assert everything he asserts regarding what happened that night. None of us are. There are only two people who know who sparked the fatal confrontation, and one of them is dead. We’ve now seen NBC
, ABC, the New York Times
, and talking heads across cable news from Shepard Smith at Fox to Roland Martin at CNN all distort the facts to make Zimmerman appear
to be a racist vigilante who killed a totally innocent “little boy” (Martin was 17 years old, and 6’2″). Is there a single writer anywhere in the mainstream media who is capable of covering the Zimmerman/Martin case without resorting to deceptive edits or taking leaps well beyond what the known facts tell us?...
- Update: CNN, belatedly, is walking back its initial interpretation of the “F***ing (unintelligible)” statement by Zimmerman.
CNN’s expert initially said that the unintelligible word was “coons,” a racial slur. Now the same expert has enhanced the audio, and hears “cold.” No racial slur. CNN should never ever have run with the “coons” interpretation. That interpretation fed the frenzy that has ensued.
