How the Press Prosecuted Zimmerman While Stoking Racial Tensions

by John Nolte
13 Jul 2013

As we await the verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman, the Florida man who claims to have shot and killed teenager Trayvon Martin in self-defense, this seems the perfect time to reflect on the media's cynical and dishonest role in turning a local crime into a national obsession.

As you will see below, by hook and crook, the mainstream media did everything in its still-potent power to not only push for the prosecution of Mr. Zimmerman (the police originally chose not to charge him) but also to gin up racial tensions where none needed to exist.

I always thought that the press was on the side of truth. I personally have found out that is not the case. Between the completely biased DOJ/CRS, and the constant rants of bid talking heads of the MSM, it's a wonder that Zimmerman was not hung from the nearest tree rather than have the summations by the defense.

Where did I claim that 'racial tensions need to exist'?

I find that you've mentally blocked out what the MSM did in this case. You know editing photos to reduce the cut and abrasions on Zimmerman's head. Then the editing of audio tapes making it appear that Zimmerman said something he DIDN'T. But that's okay with you if the MSM showed their bias by lying. Rather than tell the truth in the media, the MSM stirred and increased the racial tensions and people of the Socialist left like Pavlov's dogs salivated and shook their heads in agreement

Contrary to the slogan, the entire criminal justice system operates on the presumption of guilty until proven innocent and punishes a person as guilty until found not guilty.

And while we are here writing people like Al Sharpton are insisting that this was all about racial hate. As a representative of one of the MSM Sharpton is attempting to reignite racism into America. Then there's people on these boards that ignore the truth and how the MSM incites racism in America.
