The Trayvon Martin Case and the MSM

Sphere: Related Content

The death of Trayvon Martin is a tragedy no matter how one looks at it. Regardless of how the facts may turn out, one man is dead, ones life is ruined and two families have been irreparably changed.

The last thing I wanted to see was Trayvon's life spelled out in the media. He was a 17-year old boy who said things teenagers say and write things teenagers write. My own son puts lyrics on his Facebook page that could be construed in a million different ways if the media was interested.

That said, if Sharpton and the racial zealots hadn't convicted Mr. Zimmerman in the court of public opinion without the facts being known, we'd not be where we are today. The media lynched Zimmerman and gave him no chance to speak his peace. The police had yet to finish their investigation before the NAACP, NBP and Jesse Jackson screamed racism and thus forced Zimmerman and his lawyer to launch their own media barrage.

Add to that the fact that going off half cocked as Sharpton did probably hurt Martin's case because their was a witness who said he saw Martin attacking Zimmerman and it may lend credence to Zimmerman's side.

Aside form that part of the case, the media has shown themselves to be insanely liberal at every step. When they realized they didn't have the classic white man kills black man story, they concocted a new race in America...the White Hispanic to fit their meme. Zimmerman's dad is white and his mother is Peruvian. Interesting, Obama's mom was white and his dad was Kenyan, is he a White African-American?

Anyway, the media's playbook was blown out of the water today when it was revealed that the Hispanic Zimmerman was not the gun-toting, evangelical, cracker clinger they wanted but was, in fact, a registered Democrat. I swear I heard a million liberal heads explode at that news.

This is definitely not over but as I wrote previously, this may hurt Obama is more ways then he knows.
