Skip to comments.As George Zimmerman Prosecution Implodes, A Media Invested In His Guilt Grows More Shrill

Its dangerous for America the way were doing this as a trial in the media with the whole nation as jury. This observation about the trial of George Zimmerman for the murder of Florida teen Trayvon Martin in 2012 by MSNBC host Touré was as true when he made it, in March of last year, as it is today. Too few, it seems, have taken his advice to heart.
Since the Zimmerman trial began, the instant analysis of the nationally televised case meriting near wall-to-wall coverage on the cable news outlets has not been favorable to the prosecution. State witness after state witness has had their credibility impugned or introduced reasonable doubt that Zimmermans actions may not meet the threshold necessary to convict him for second degree murder. And as the states case against Zimmerman grows thinner, the tone of those in the media who have invested a significant portion of the last 16 months in an effort to indict him in the court of public opinion has grown more caustic.
This phenomenon began on June 28 after the prosecutions star witness and Martins friend, Rachel Jeantel, took the stand to testify that she was on the phone with the deceased teen when fatal fight with Zimmerman began.
Her testimony was nothing short of a disaster for the prosecution. She was combative, she was reprimanded for being contemptuous of the proceedings, she admitted to reversing assertions made in deposition, and she introduced the fact that Martin had racially profiled Zimmerman (disclosing that Martin had used the slur cracker to describe him).
It was then that the media commentators invested in Zimmermans guilt went on the defense. MSNBC contributor Goldie Taylor one of the first media commentators to don a hooded sweatshirt to protest Martins unnecessary murder....

What do we need with the jury system when we have the media to determine the outcome.
The detective who, while hostile to Zimmerman, corroborated his version of events?
I think the MSM and the Admin have been spoiling for a nationawide race riot from the start on this....
Given the low information anture of the populace, they may get it....
Prosecution is now trying base their case on conjecture and speculation. Really hoping for idiocy.
How many crackers could a crackerjack crack if a crackerjack could jack crackers?
Yeah, it’s creepy.
I haven’t forgotten that it was the media who creatively edited the 911 call from Zimmerman to make it appear that his only concern was that Martin was black.
Same thing is happening to Paula Deen.
Who voted the media judge and jury?
Those who are prone to believe Zimmerman is guilty base their opinion totally on the idea that Zimmerman was the ‘aggressor’. Facts to the contrary are moot.
Bingo, these talking heads have been ginning up the brothers for 2 weeks now. I fully expect that when the not guilty verdict comes down all holy heckoly is going to break loose in all the the big cities.
And incite riot for ratings for pure debased self-interests.
Why does the media always preface Martin with the Honorific “teen?” Wasn’t he a man, legally?
When will Obama issue an Executive Order declaring Zimmerman guilty.
He’s a Hispanic, if Obama is Black. That’s the cold hard truth here.
Just heard a female substitute host on KFI in Los Angeles... only caught the end of her comments and she asked, “Is Zimmerman a pathological liar?”
The guest said, “Well, the best way I have heard him described is timid.” Of they went on that rant...
Why is Zimmerman thought to be lying? He gave a police interview the very next day before he had an attorney. The police believed his story.
This is such B. S.
Your very wording here indicates that you have yourself prejudged his innocence. You may very well be right, but don't get all self-righteous about someone doing the same on the other side.
I believe that the jury will be so afraid of riots and great bodily harm done to them if they find Zimmerman Not Guilty ,as the evidence proves, that they will find him guilty and get out of town quickly.

Supporters of Trayvon Martin are threatening to stage riots and looting if George Zimmerman escapes a conviction,
Was it the Left and black people buying those 80 million firearms and all that ammunition since November 2008?
