And this has been news for awhile today, but it still isn't showing up on the front page of Google News. Google News does seem to push a viewpoint, from what I've seen.

Now I look at Google News again, and it was just added under U.S. News. But it has been news for at least an hour.

Good move. Bring the MSM’s despicable coverage decisions into the situation and get NBC to help pay for this mess.

The day will come when our MSM try to do - to a particular ethinic group in our country - what Radio Rwanda did in 1992 and 1993.

Excellent. Zimmerman is going to need some money to recover from this mess, and Big Media owes it to him for lying in order to benefit Big Brother.

Good for Zimmerman. It is about time he fought back and we heard his side of the story. The media have been far worse than lynch mobs.

Great! And how many other news services picked up the story and ran with it? Embellishing it on the way? Saw it on BBC in Australia and ABC (Aussie B'casting Corp) - he went world wide. This should be fun to follow.

The press did the same thing with Annie Oakly. She wound up suing 25 papers of the day and won every one of them including Hearst's papers.

Zimmerman is going to win this lawsuit. After the Duke fiasco, he will find a very sympathetic jury.

Good!!! Start with the big domino. Jay Leno will have to write his own jokes and instead of “where in the world is Matt Lauer”, it will be “where in New York City is Matt Lauer”.

Excellent! The more money he takes from NBC the less they have to give to Maddow, Matthews and Schultz.

I would not be to sure. That would depend on who is on the jury. Do not forget the OJ Simpson trial as an example.

As long as the jury doesn't come from Durham. The local folks in Durham still think the Duke boys were guilty. Crystal was never even charged - thanks to the AG.
