  • George Zimmerman’s Lawyer: 'Facts Have Been Spun by the Media'

    When George Zimmerman’s lawyer, Orlando-based criminal defense attorney Craig Sonner, defended his client to TIME on Sunday night, he would not say whether he is gathering evidence for a trial. But he hints he is thinking ahead to a criminal case. “I err on the side of preparedness,” he says. “Every time I take a case I prepare as though I am going to trial.” Sonner continues to remain mum on the specifics of the incident, like why police surveillance cameras showed Zimmerman with no apparent blood and grass stains soon after the shooting, or whether or not he has...

    This is what we see time and again at the hands of the same Left that manufactured a month's long non-troversy over a word Rush Limbaugh spoke. While, on one hand, the left and their media allies feign outrage over Limbaugh, on the other hand, they either willfully ignore or launch vile, sexist attacks against conservative women that go well beyond anything that can in any way be called satire or humor. Wisconsin Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch is a wife, mother, and a cancer survivor. She's currently being targeted for recall and by some of the ugliest personal attacks you'll...
  • NBC to do ‘internal investigation’ on Zimmerman segment [NBC edited tape to make him look racist]

    NBC told this blog today that it would investigate its handling of a piece on the “Today” show that ham-handedly abridged the conversation between George Zimmerman and a dispatcher in the moments before the death of Trayvon Martin. A statement from NBC: “We have launched an internal investigation into the editorial process surrounding this particular story.” Great news right there. As exposed by Fox News and media watchdog site NewsBusters, the “Today” segment took this approach to a key part of the dispatcher call: Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black. Here’s how the...

    Everybody wants to see justice done in the Trayvon Martin case, and almost everybody acts as if they already know what that is. Never mind the Rev. Al Sharpton, activist and crusading journalist all in one. Nor his MSNBC colleague Lawrence O'Donnell, who recently announced he'd decided to forgo wearing a hoodie on TV to look more like a prosecutor. Here's GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum on "Face the Nation," assessing shooter George Zimmerman's mental health. "Someone has a very sick mind who would pursue someone like this, Santorum said. "This is clearly a heinous act. You know, there are...

    (CBS News) Vice President Joe Biden said Florida's "Stand Your Ground" gun laws will be a topic of debate in light of the controversy surrounding the shooting of Trayvon Martin. "It's important that people be put in a position where their Second Amendment rights are protected, but that they also don't, as a consequence of the laws, unintendedly put themselves in harm's way," Biden told anchor Bob Schieffer in an interview to air on "Face the Nation" on Sunday.

  • NBC Investigating Edited 911 Call From Night Trayvon Martin Died

    The "Today" show version made shooter George Zimmerman appear to be engaged in racial profiling. NBC News said Saturday it is investigating why its Today show broadcast an edited version of the 911 call placed by George Zimmerman the night he shot and killed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin. Both Today and MSNBC have broadcast an edited version of the call, which makes Zimmerman sound as if he were engaged in racial profiling. "We have launched an internal investigation into the editorial process surrounding this particular story," a spokeswoman for Today told THR Saturday. Last week, Today aired a segment that...

    Two days ago, Big Journalism reported on a published report by MSNBC staff and NBC News that contained an irresponsibly edited quote from George Zimmerman's 911 call that mislead to portray him as racist. It's now emerged that NBC actually aired an edited version of the call that matches the published report. In the NBC segment, Zimmerman says: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.” The full version, though, unfolds like this: Zimmerman: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good, or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around,...

    On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough delivered a devastating critique of conservative sites that have engaged in a coordinated effort to tarnish the reputation of Trayvon Martin in death. “Why is it that some on the right are actually taking this up as a cause,” asked an incredulous Scarborough. “As National Review said almost immediately after it happened, ‘this has nothing to do with gun rights, this has nothing to do with the second amendment, this has nothing to do with stand your ground laws, this has nothing to do with the NRA. This has everything to do with...

    APPLETON, Wis. (AP) — Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney on Friday defended his personal wealth amid intensifying criticism from his main GOP rival and President Barack Obama's re-election campaign, unlikely allies working to portray the former businessman as out of touch with most Americans. Romney, who is worth up to $250 million, would be among the nation's richest presidents if elected. His Democratic and Republican opponents have thrust Romney's success to the forefront of the presidential contest as he tightens his grasp on the GOP nomination. "If we become one of those societies that attacks success, one outcome is certain...

  • Former Tea Party Spokesman Cleared of Kidnapping, Rape Charges After Alleged Victim Recants

    Prosecutors have dropped kidnapping and rape charges against a former San Diego Tea Party spokesman after the alleged victim recanted her story. Michael Kobulnicky, 54, was arrested earlier this month and accused of sexually assaulting a 56-year-old woman he allegedly picked up in his car. According to San Diego Fox affiliate KSWB-TV, the alleged victim appeared at a bail hearing Monday and told the judge Kobulnicky was not the man who assaulted her. On Wednesday, she recanted her story to prosecutors and said she was never kidnapped or raped.

    The lottery drawing tonight might make someone very rich and – for the first time ever for a lottery – richer than Mitt Romney. Sure, a few jackpot totals have been greater than Romney’s estimated worth of $250 million, but after various taxes, no cash payout has ever topped his wealth. Tonight’s cash option of an estimated $398.8 million would place some lucky person far above the Romneys on the list of Very Rich Americans. There’s lots of advice being given today on what to do with all that money if you win, but Mitt Romney might have a few...

    Daily Kos: 'Movement Conservatism' More Deadly in America Than al-Qaeda By Tim Graham Created 03/29/2012 - 8:41am Here’s a sentence you don’t read every day: “Movement Conservatism will kill more innocent Americans than Al-Qaida ever will.” That is, of course, a Daily Kos sentence from Wednesday. Several hours later, another Kosmonaut insisted the conservative brain has no sense of time, place or direction. Conservatives can barely walk, it seems, let alone talk. The blogger “LeftHandedMan” was so upset by liberal Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe gave Obama a near "F" for failure when it came to bipartisan outreach. “President Obama. Only...

    Surveillance video of George Zimmerman arriving at a Sanford, Fla. police station indicates what may be an injury to the back of his head, a Daily Caller analysis shows. ABC News published the video Wednesday evening. Zimmerman is the man who shot and killed 17-year-old black teen Trayvon Martin a month ago. “A police surveillance video taken the night that Trayvon Martin was shot dead shows no blood or bruises on George Zimmerman,” ABC News reporter Matt Gutman wrote, noting that Zimmerman told police “he shot Martin after he was punched in the nose, knocked down and had his head...

    If you were handed a can of bug spray, you might start killing a lot of insects around the house. And if you had reason to believe that the bugs were poisonous — maybe because your neighbor told you there was an infestation, or you had seen a show about creepy crawly things on the Discovery Channel — you might even become convinced that the little piece of lint under your bed was a nasty spider, curled up just waiting to bite you. Americans tend to overestimate both their risk of exposure to violent crime and their ability to judge...

    Former NAACP leader C.L. Bryant went head to head Tuesday with CNN’s Roland Martin over how black leaders have responded to the Feb. 26 Trayvon Martin killing. In an interview with The Daily Caller Monday, Bryant, once the chapter president of the Garland, Texas NAACP, criticized Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton of “exploiting” the Martin tragedy in order to “racially divide this country.” But the CNN contributor took issue with Bryant, tweeting his disapproval multiple times. On Tuesday’s “Outfront with Erin Burnett” on CNN, Martin had an opportunity to push back against Bryant on live TV. ...more (w/video)...

    SAN FRANCISCO -- The suspect in last week's slayings of five people in San Francisco was ordered deported in 2006 after he served a prison term for robbery and assault, but because his native Vietnam would not issue travel documents for him, immigration officials had to let him go free, officials said Monday. Binh Thai Luc, 35, of San Francisco was released under the terms of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that said undocumented immigrants must be released after six months if their country of origin won't take them back, according to officials with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement...
