Geroge Zimmerman was a private citizen , involved in an incident where a homicide occurred .
Police investigated , and didn’t charge him any criminal charges ; he was covered by existing Florida ‘Stand your Ground’ law .
A week later , the indicdent was deemed a racial bias by the media , especially by NBC media . They showed youthful outdated photos of Travon Martin , and current jailhouse photos of adult Geroge Zimmerman .
Enter the NBC ‘doctored ‘ statement, selectively and intentionally misquoted from the 911 tapes , and the rest of the liberal media followed like sheeple . Each of the other media proceeded to make increasingly more outragious racial bias claims ,which were initially prompted by the NBC ‘doctored ‘ statement.

The fact of the matter is that George Zimmerman was a private citizen before NBC created a media circus .
Should Zimmerman made any public statement on Hannity , in hind sight , probably not ; but up until that time he was vilified and crucified by the media , and never given an opportunity to explain his actions .

Don’t forget that Zimmerman and his extended family were recieveing ‘death threats’ not just from his community , but also from arround the Country , and even a political commentary by the President , himself.
Zimmerman was a private citizen before the NBC media turned him into a public figure.
Prior to the rekindled legal attack on Zimmerman , the discussion in that community was about the ‘Stand your Ground ‘ law ; NBC jingo journalism changed all that .

Not only was NBC responsible for making him a pubic figure if they had reported the story honestly and without intentional bias that would not have been enough to make him a public figure. It was only because of their lies and distortions that he became well known.

I suggest that an additional lawsuit be filed against NBC for having their lawyer cynically attempt to libel and slander him again by using their own malfeasance against him. Ask for another $10 million dollars on top of whatever they're asking in the first suit.
