The Martin case continues to evolve, much to the chagrin of the MSM. The more that comes out, the more the opportunistic, and shall we say, creative, coverage is blowing up in the dinosaur media’s faces. Some more came to light yesterday, so let’s take a look at the new details.
After NBC was castigated for selectively editing the 911 tape to make Zimmerman look like a racist. Then, the ABC video that allegedly showed no injuries to Zimmerman actually did. And now, it seems that the CNN audio “enhancement” that indicated that Zimmerman used a racial slur has been “re-enhanced,” with some different results…
So, another piece if the puzzle is in place, in spite of the MSM’s covereage. At least I can say that CNN appeared to have taken it seriously, and didn’t apparently create the alleged slur. NBC, on the other hand, intentionally manipulated part of that same 911 call.
And this letter from the Zimmerman family to the NAACP should put an end to the “George Zimmerman is a racist” meme.
“Do you know the individual that stepped up when no one else in the black community would?” the family member wrote. “Do you know who spent tireless hours putting flyers on the cars of persons parked in the churches of the black community? Do you know who waited for the church?goers to get out of church so that he could hand them fliers in an attempt to organize the black community against this horrible miscarriage of justice? Do you know who helped organize the City Hall meeting on January 8th, 2011 at Sanford City Hall??”
“That person was GEORGE ZIMMERMAN. Ironic isn’t it?”
“The main point for this letter is to explain to you that the black community has labeled George a racist without any investigation at all,” the letter continued. “Regardless of the fact that George personally spoke to many of your constituents, not one has stepped forward and said, ‘Hey I know that face. That is the Hispanic guy that was standing up for Sherman Ware. That was the only non?black face in the meetings for justice in this case.’”
“You know as well as I do that there are many NAACP followers that recognize George from the Ware case as well as many other good things that he’s done for the black community.
So, once again, the narrative takes some serious damage. In a sense, the MSM damaged itself as well, since they went in the tank for a specific narrative, and were consequently caught either over-emphasizing bits of evidence over others, or outright fabricating it.
There needs to be an end to this that provides justice for all, and the truth is the key to that. Unfortunately for Martin’s family, and Zimmerman himself, the MSM has taken it upon themselves to create a story, rather than cover one.
