ABC Still Corrupting Zimmerman case
American Thinker, by Jack Cashill

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 7/28/2013 6:58:41 AM

In a perverse bit of post-trial agitprop, ABC News somehow recruited the one woman of color on George Zimmerman´s "all white" jury and twisted her words to reflect the presumed editorial position of ABC News. In this clip from an exclusive Robin Roberts interview which has played just about everywhere including CBS News, Roberts says to the juror, "Some people have said, point blank, ´George Zimmerman got away with murder.´ How do you respond to those people who say that?" In the edited video ABC floated about, "Maddy" answers unhesitatingly, "George Zimmerman got away with murder.

FTA: On March 13, ABC´s Matt Gutman violated just about every known rule of journalism...

I hope George Zimmerman sues Guttman for all the lies he reported as truth.

The corruption is in the fact that these "news" agencies want to stir up racial unrest. They would like nothing better than wall to wall coverage of riots and angry mobs. They thought they had the mother lode with this case but it didn´t go as far as they wanted. They wanted violent chaos in the streets for days and they are not going to stop until they get it.

I strongly agree with #1 - sue this, and other, lying bastids (as are old friend, T-Bubba would have called them) into oblivion. Perhaps THEN the State Controlled Media will stop their more blatant lying.

But facts don´t matter. Zippy needed a distraction, a reason to fly about the country encouraging reason, in order to deflate his disgusting and criminal tenure as POTUS. The media gave him exactly what he needed.

Now, the LoFo voting block has had their mind scrubbed of the IRS, Benghazi, and Fast & Furious criminality of this administration. So now we can all be racists not only because we believe the verdict in the GZ trial was correct, but also because Obama Boo Boo is being persecuted by evil conservatives over his "policies" whatever they are.

Many or most folks still get their news from the likes of ABC. Network deception should be used against them. They should be continually discredited. Shouting from the rooftops isn´t a good way, just calm and continual corrections for so long as they continue with this practice will be more effective.

My hope was that many people are now aware that the MSM is manipulating the ´facts´ of this story. After a family party yesterday, I no longer believe that. Someone brought up the Zimmerman case and the first opinion expressed was that Zimmerman had a screw loose. Another person remarked that it was all because of that ´terrible law´. That´s when I lost it and explained that the ´terrible law´ didn´t have a thing to do with this case; Zimmerman didn´t make the choice to stand his ground. He had no choice given the fact that Martin was on top of him, pounding his head on the concrete. I explained to them that the media was lying to manipulate them and gave examples of the lies. These people are ordinary, middle-class Americans from the Midwest. They had absolutely no knowledge of what I was telling them. The media is winning the war and our side is still searching for a general.

Jay Carny´s Benghazi response should be giving to ABC(with Zimmerman being substituted for Benghazi):"That´s Old News, lets just move on!" Or Hillary´s "What difference does it matter or make!"
It´d be fun watching the ABC Talking Heads choking over these responses.

It´s kind of fun speculating on how far the democrats, ABC, etc will go in being so stupid, whether it´s how long they´ll harp on this Zim case or if Anthony Weiner will see the light and drop out of the New York mayor´s race. Good stuff to make bets on.

On that talk ABC Sunday morning talk show today, hosted by that guy who has no journalism degree or background, ABC flashed newspaper images in a kinda collage on the wallpaper that said things like "Obama punches back, Obama coming back", further praise, etc as the pundits argued over Obama´s status. So ABC´s bias is quite obvious. So being a statement on the front of a newspaper is evidence of Obama´s comeback? ha ha ha ha.

I don´t think Zimmerman has any money with which to sue. Have his present lawyers indicated willingness to continue to represent him? If a competent law firm would sue on contingency or pro bono a suit would be possible. Just having grounds to sue is not enough. You also need money. This would be a long, drawn out affair. And, he has already been through a lot.

Great documentation by Cashill-as always-of the blatant lies and misrepresentations
presented about this case by those who claim to be journalists.
Matt Guttman´s reports have been so grotesquely false that he should have been fired by ABC.
" Disinformation of this caliber has fed black paranoia for more than a year and continues unabated."
The actual facts and testimony apparently do not matter to most blacks
and many uninformed whites.
A week or so ago, after the trial concluded , Savannah Guthrie of NBC was on the Tonight Show.
Leno said that GZ was a " rent a cop " and who
had " stalked TM " and " they " should have only given him a " toy gun".
Guthrie did not correct all his mistakes.
Sunny Hostin, the black female on Anderson Cooper´s nightly legal panel has been canonizing Trayvon from the start.
The other night, she stated that she just learned from Sabrina, that Trayvon was
" an excellent student in math and science " and that
he " had been studying
to be a pilot with the first African American to fly solo around the world ".
Trayvon attended a summer day camp -Experience Aviation- run by Barrington Irving,
when he was 13.
No doubt his stepmother Alicia Stanley was responsible for that.
It was just after that period , when he left Alicia´s care and was returned to Sabrina ,
that his uninvolved biological parents let him go feral and allowed his life to become drugs and thugs.
Let ABC and NBC report that.

This article is one of the best. If someone finds it difficult to follow, they need to slow down or print it off. Or know enough about the case to understand the references.

Cashill hits on a number of key points. The "Zimmerman should have stayed in the truck" and the "police told him to stay in the truck" has been blown out of the water. But how many heard the nonemergency dispatcher´s testimony in the trial that he had no authority to give orders to GZ and further that he didn´t know GZ was in or out of his truck.

There are many other important bids distilled into understandable language. Trust me.

Gutman has been a weasel since he was first recruited by the Scheme Team´s PR guru Ryan Julison, who also did dirty work PR for the Pigford case. It is disgusting to see him still leading ABC´s coverage of the trial and the case on TV and in print.

I do not understand why anyone comes on a thread to say that they are confused by an article. I would try again or keep quiet rather than disclose my reading and comprehension deficits. Cashill could write third grade readers, he is that clear.

This is a "saver" in your Distorting Media File. Ldotters know TV actors lie for big bucks. Lucianne and others on the internet expose these lies thoroughly. The GOOD NEWS
thanks to the net, there is MORE BAD NEWS1
BUT, O´Reilly, Stossel, Greta, Rush, Glenn, most all radio/TV good guys, will not touch their co news conspirators! No daily criticism of these mafia protectors. Imagine, daily, if each of these important TV and talk radio hosts would give us mal quotes, MSM distortions of the day. ATTACK the news actors for their daily ongoing lies. How can Congress be attacked without attacking their protective mafia, the press and TV news actors? Time to attack the censoring Diane Sawyers relentlessly.

The Poverty Hoax

A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran.

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood.

In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs.

Nothing better depicted Obama´s illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez´ brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning. Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes: But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It´s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

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. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

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.

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.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco.

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."

She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this
