What the Media Choose Not to Know about Trayvon
American Thinker ^ | June 7, 2012 | Jack Cashill

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.

Sadly, Big Media doesn't let the truth get in the way of their agenda. I pray that George Zimmerman gets a fair trial. I fear the public pressure will convict him before the trial begins.

First time I remember hearing....."Please, get an officer over here"...at 7:10 That is a "scared" plea....

Anyone that thinks Zimmerman pursued Tray is DUMB....Zimmerman is trying to be cautious while doing a job....

Well researched and interpreted timeline, in my opinion. This commentary is obviously conjecture, but it sure does fit well as a possible narrative.

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?

What America choses not to know about the Straits...and hundreds of other heinous cases of black on white crime

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. Don’t think all of these animals didn’t 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.

There’s a lot more involved here than a home invasion and robbery.

WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??

90 year old husband’s 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.

Zimmerman sounds a little anxious: "Please, get an officer over here."

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.

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.

Appreciate the link. The autopsy report was interesting, especially the liver condition. I failed to notice the concentration level of THC in the urine. But if it was in the urine then this sad kid had been using within hours of his death.

The more that comes out on this case, the more likely a corrupt unJustice system will likely murder George to avoid the embarrassment of losing grossly at trial, esepcially with the Holder Just Us department putting pressur eon them for 'his peaople'. I'm very pleased that Derschowitz has injected himself int his case obliquely because the unprofessional prosecutor has exposed her inadequacies so quickly. I fear we are witnessing a modern lynching of an Hispanic man for the purposes as yet divulged of a corrupt and evil administration.

Yes, he is - he’s been very outspoken on BHO as well and the secrecy surrounding him, his background and even his origin.

He’s a brave journalist and one with integrity.

THC can be detected in the urine for 2-4 weeks.

That’s because it’s continuously filtered from the much larger blood volume and concentrated in the urine.

The fact that THC was detected in his blood is more important for the time line.

Current technology can only detect THC in the blood for 1-2 days.

Sounds like a good trade, if the Urban Feral population goes with the burned real estate.

As for the loss of Enemedia” credibility, thanks for the laugh.

Yeah. Perhaps someone can view the actual transcripts online and then figure how or why a question from Zimmerman to dispatch, was tiurned by the author into an anxious "Please, get an officer over here."

Never mind. We already know why. This is just more 'research' from those who sprinkle GZ's pixie dust for him.

The answer is simple.

The American “press” are criminally behind
the coup d’etat against Americans and are
in league with the criminals attacking white
Americans.

The American “press” began CW2 by demanding
heads get “cracked”.

Read the article. “Please, get an officer over here.” was at 7:10pm.

The full article compiles all the known evidence in order. When this comes out in court, the whole prosecution case collapses.

Most blacks are totally racist themselves, so they are unlikely to change their minds. Facts mean nothing compared to myth.

If you’re too lazy to listen to the tape, then you will believe the transcript contains every word registered on the audio tape. If on the other hand you listen to the actual tape you will hear Zimmerman saying those words as the dispatcher talks over him. The talk over is what ened up in the transcript, with the words of Zimmerman not transcripted. Go racebait somewhere else. You’re obviously not familiar enough with Freerepublic or freepers to realize what an utter fool you’re making of yourself.

First off, THX to MHGinTN for that bit of insight regarding transcripts, which up until now I had assumed were prepared by completely unbiased and thorough methods. Now, once again I’m educated about the manipulation of that sort of information like the libs do with everything they touch.

There couldn’t possibly be any bias by the transcriber could there (oh, right another simple oversight like the rest of the oversights in this specious case against GZ, one of which resulted in someone getting fired)?

As to Anglian, I respectfully suggest that you either start backing up your statements with some facts or drift off to a site where the members appreciate YOUR pixie dust.

At 1 minute 30 seconds and following into the audio Auntie linked in post #16 above the clear enough plea is heard as the dispatcher talks over George. so going to the 1:30 mark on the transcript will reveal the omission.

BTW, if you want to really get a feel for the demonic manipulation of this case, the ‘Daily Kos’ and ‘Mother Jones’ have posted outright lies, framing the case as Zimmerman ran down Treyvon, then truned and Treyvon ran him down so Zimmerman shot the kid. There is a blatant lie imbedded int heir rendetion,that supposedly Treyvon’s phone gal was on the phone with him a minute before he was shot, but the evidence at the scene shows the ear buds Treyvon used for his hoodie hidden phone calling wear tucked securely in his pockets when he was on the ground with Zimmerman, and that struggle is said to have lasted for approximately two minutes. It’s hard not to shout conspiracy to incite race rioting when such blatant lies are exposed.

What’s really hilarious, or would be if this whole situation wasn’t such a tragedy, is their transcript of Z’s phone call to police. Besides everything they left out, there is one part of the transcript where they actually have these words: “Redacted by Mother Jones.” I don’t care enough to try to find out what they’ve redacted, they’re not worth one second of my time, but it’s right there in black and white.

I appreciate your insight on the transcript.

Regarding the headphones, I believe page 2 of Investigator Chris Serino's report says that the headphones were initially found near Martin's body: "… a bag of Skittles candy, a red 7-11 red lighter in his pockets, headphones next to him, and a photo pin on his sweatshirt."

There are some inconsistencies, but we know the pin was removed during CPR and placed in Martin's pocket during transport to the morgue. The earbuds may have been placed in his pocket in the same manner. Or Serino's report may not have been correct.

Good analysis.but one problem - Matin’s THC wasn’t high enough to have smoked within an hour of his death, from what I can read. He probably did smoke that night.

The BullStalin media uses the word “alleged” in every other crime story even when a shooter on a rampage is killed at the scene (e.g., the alleged gunman was killed at the scene...).

Event the Fort Hood shooter’s killing are treated more cautiously by the Pravda press.

It’s an electronic lynch mob partnering the “anti-gun” advocates with the Black Panther MMM lynch mob’s “wanted dead or alive” bounty.
