Posted on 06/07/2012 7:55:58 PM PDT by The people have spoken
Unnerved by an unspoken mix of political bias and racial queasiness, the major media have chosen to know as little about Trayvon Martin as they know about Barack Obama.
As a case in point, consider this boy vs. man fable spun by the New York Times' Charles Blow:
A boy's blood had been spilled on a rain-soaked patch of grass behind a row of mustard-colored condominiums by a man who had pursued him against the advice of 911 dispatchers. That man carried a 9-millimeter handgun. The boy carried a bag of candy.
Blow was writing seven weeks after Trayvon's death. He had no excuse for missing the actual story. Worse, since he is a writer for the Times, his reporting has helped set the media tone worldwide.
The media's willful ignorance was on display again this past week. In reporting this news of George Zimmerman's return to jail, more than a few media outlets showed the dangerously deceptive image of Trayvon as 11-year-old cherub. They did so in the assumption that the narrative was still theirs to control. It is not. The blogs, which have been doing the real detective work on this case, have long since taken control away from them.
The sites I have found must useful are the Daily Caller and theconservativetreehouse.com. What follows is largely culled from those sites and their independent contributors. By probing Trayon's background and parsing his social media chatter, they have put together a picture of a disturbed young man that begins to makes sense of the events that unfolded on that fateful rainy night of February 26.

very informative, pretty good, Why isn’t the Prosecutor in PRISON YET for this LYNCHING??
Anyone that thinks Zimmerman pursued Tray is DUMB....Zimmerman is trying to be cautious while doing a job....
Cashill is an amazing reporter and writer, and a very brave one too.
Well researched and interpreted timeline, in my opinion. This commentary is obviously conjecture, but it sure does fit well as a possible narrative.
The last known photos of this thug have been hidden. People will be shocked to their senses when they see the con that has been played.
Dershowitz really goes after this pathetic excuse for a Prosecutor in a column today - Corey apparently called Harvard Law School and demanded they do something about Dershowitz to shut him up. She is quite a piece of work. Hopefully Zimmerman can get a fair trial. Knowing what lying lengths this prosecutor is willing to go, it’s pretty frightening.
Most revealing. Did not know the meaning of ‘lean’. Does anyone know if the drug culture likes to smoke a blunt then do some lean to swing a mood?
While the Zimmerman/Martin white on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by a gang of feral blacks in Oklahoma just a few weeks ago?
The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten and his jaw broken. He was shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.
The 85 year old partially blind wife was RAPED and then BEATEN TO DEATH.
Can you just imagine the pain, the humiliation, the horror that dear old lady experienced being gang raped by that pack of feral animals?
(the autopsy states she was raped. Dont think all of these animals didnt all participate)
And can you imagine the pain, the horror of that dear old husband having to witness this?
Mr. Strait died from his injuries last week.
Theres a lot more involved here than a home invasion and robbery.
WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??
90 year old husbands jaw broken and shot in face with a BB gun numerous times?
85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??
Why does it take a foreign press to enlighten America as to this henious crime?
WHERE IS THE NATIONAL OUTRAGE?
Have they caught the rest of the gang of feral blacks who raped, tortured and murdered this elderly woman? Are they even looking? Not a word about it in the media.
Can someone please show me where he said this?
Oh you can't? Just what we need. More Zimmerman pixie dust, more lying and bullshit to cover for his sorry ass.
If that is the case I can't imagine how much worse they could be than these.
A lot more info on the drug connection in this article from the site referenced in the above article:
High doses are sometimes compared to the effects of other dissociatives such as PCP or ketamine
pingin’ myself for tomorrow.
Go here for the audio. Listen at 1:30. The officer is talking over him but Zimmerman says it right at that time and you can hear it very clearly if you listen a couple times and filter out the police person.
Any other simple research you’d like someone to do for you?
Yep, can’t mention a black boy buying a watermelon drink. Oops, did I say “boy”? Back to the re-education polish death camp with me!
I didn’t notice any “new information”, but it is an excellent summary, timeline, and analysis by Jack Cashill.
“New information” was a poor choice of words. I meant information not widely known.
