CNN Pressures Zimmerman Jury
to ´Answer Questions Publicly´

Breitbart´s Big Journalism, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 7/15/2013 10:59:48 AM

For reasons no one with an IQ above room temperature needs spelled out, both federal and state laws protect the anonymity of jurors. Monday morning on CNN, though, anchor Carol Costello said, "I understand [the jury´s desire to remain anonymous] during trial, but after the trial when everything is over -- we live in a transparent society, should jurors remain anonymous?" This, as the chyron screamed (see above) about the "countless questions" that remain unanswered.

Comments:
I swore to myself I wouldn´t post any Zimmerman stuff ... but I couldn´t pass this one up! The gall of CNN!

Costello should read the trial transcript and all her questions will be answered.

Idiot!

Perhaps CNN should run a crawl of all the death threats directed at the jury. These people would be targeted by murderous mobs whipped up by our own Federal government, race hustlers and the current President of the United States.

The stupid is strong with the MSM. Real strong.

And the prosecutors were on ABC, shamelessly saying they are still convinced Zimmerman hunted down Trayvon and shot him, meaning that the jurors were idiots for not buying their phony and emotional narrative.

In any other case, prosecutors have the good sense to simply thank the jury for their verdict and then shut up. It is highly unethical for them to try to continue to prosecute the case in the media.

The ´legal analyst´ on CNN Sunny Hosting said yesterday that we are still waiting to hear from the jury on these issues. Mark Geragos promptly informed her that we have heard from the jury. Two words - Not Guilty! That´s all we needed to hear.

I was once on a Grand Jury for 3 months. At one point we heard a case about a Mafia mob boss who was very, very famous in his day. His daughter was being called in to testify against a family member. She was an extremely hostile witness who bold-faced lied the entire time. Imagine our concern as we had our name-cards in front of us as she looked around the room making direct eye contact? It´s a creepy feeling and very intimidating.

These people in the news business are beyond sickening, they´re evil.

Trayvon´s illegal lifestyle continues to be scrubbed by the media and the majority of their biased "analysts "-Sonny Hostin being the black Nancy Grace.
They continue to purposefully lie about the evidence presented and to promote the fallacy that an evil white man gunned down a black toddler.
The black CNN analysts continue to stoke racial hatred
by saying all innocent black children are now at risk of being killed by whites.
It´s unconscionable..but, it´s CNN.
They don´t care about the lives of the children of the white jurors.
Did these same people demand the names and addresses of the OJ jurors ?
This is a tactic to scare future jurors when a defendant is black.

CNN and other liberal media are just trying to excuse their own behavior by challenging others.

The jury saw/heard all that was before them and came to the only judgment available to any normal citizen who listens to the facts and is able to make judgment with the brain God gave them.

The media is ever on attack to anything/anyone that disagrees with them or that they don´t approve of.

I pray that we as a nation are learning a valuable lesson during the Obama administration. We have never been subjected to such disdain for authority. We are able to evaluate whatever is before US!

Obama is primarily responsible for all this chaos we are witnessing. He is a rabble rouser often defined as Community Organizer.

Each day we are being subjected to more of Obamacare, his way of defining who he is - one who wants to rule/reign, to be in total authority with no one challenging his decisions.

We need to prepare for the next presidential election, to fully be involved and willing to actively support those who are willing to stand up for the rights we once took for granted!

Continue in prayer for America. God honors those who live in His Presence and seek His will to be done, not what political correctness demands!

Unaware of the witch hunt carried out by McCarthy’s rainbow-brandishing gay great-grandsons in Silicon Valley, a middle-aged man came forward and cried out in Italian, “Is it just me, or is the gay lobby imposing a dictatorship on us with their so-called scientific experts?” The science to which he referred wasn’t JavaScript, but rather psychology and pediatrics.

The people at Mozilla may yet live to regret their decision in cooperating with the forcing out of Brendan Eich. Apparently the internet giant has been getting a lot of negative reaction to its jettisoning of Eich for his contribution in support of California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008. Whether or not this will actually end up hurting Mozilla, one wonders whether Mozilla even anticipated the possibility. The folks at Mozilla travel in a world in which PC thought dominates, and if you don’t believe me, take Nate Silver’s word for it (and after the 2012 election, I’m inclined to

Just two days later, the group reversed the decision under pressure from evangelical leaders. “The board acknowledged it made a mistake and chose to revert to our longstanding policy requiring sexual abstinence for all single employees and

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning.

These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."
