Guilty Until Proven Innocent In the Media

Very telling, how the media has shown its bias against George Zimmerman all along. Beitbart lists it by date.

I think the most offensive was that they started from the beginning, wrongly and continually calling Zimmerman "white" and "white hispanic" (say WHAT??), and reporting false stories. I wish the media would be honest with itself and admit to being liberal minded with an agenda and that most often their reporting isn't really reporting, but really giving an opinion. Not always, but very often (another example is how they treat Christians in their reporting, and also regarding "global warming").

For example:

March 21, 2012 - CNN Falsely Accuses Zimmerman of Saying "F**king Coon"
Knowing full well the phony racial storm brewing around the Zimmerman case was about to have gasoline thrown on it the next day, CNN went to extraordinary lengths to claim Zimmerman had uttered the racial slur "coon" when he had not.
This has to be watched to be believed.
CNN wouldn't officially retract their defamation until April 5th, long after it was too late.

March 27, 2012 - NBC News Edits 911 Audio to Make Zimmerman Look Racist
On the storied Today Show, NBC News told America Zimmerman said this on the 911 call:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.
When the truth is that the unedited audio actually went like this:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.
Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.
After the fraudulent editing was discovered by the New Media (first by Breitbart News), former NBC News president Steve Capus would claim that the edit was "a mistake and not a deliberate act to misrepresent the phone call."
Eventually, several NBC producers would be fired (without being named), and Zimmerman would file a lawsuit against NBC; it remains unresolved.

March 28, 2012 - ABC News Falsely Claims Zimmerman Wasn't Injured Night of Shooting
The day after NBC News released its falsified 911 bombshell, ABC News released a phony, hyped-up story of its own. Using grainy surveillance video of Zimmerman at the police station on the night of the shooting, ABC News claimed, "A police surveillance video taken the night that Trayvon Martin was shot dead shows no blood or bruises on George Zimmerman."
Obviously, if true, this would go a long way towards proving Zimmerman was not in fear of his life the night of the shooting and had lied about being beaten up.
The only problem is that the ABC News story was not true -- not even close. The network didn't bother to enhance the video before breaking the news. Had they, Zimmerman'sbloody head would have been quite apparent.
It would take four days for ABC to retract its falsehood.

Here's another example. Sometimes questions are merely veiled insults or accusations. This one by an AP "journalist" is such an example. Her bias came shining through:

"After George Zimmerman was found not guilty of all charges on Saturday evening, an Associated Press reporter, Cristina Silva, tweeted this out from her verified twitter account: "So we can all kill teenagers now? Just checking.""


Mark O'Mara, the defense attorney, told the media they were part of the problem in their bias.

One "journalist" asked if Zimmerman cried, as if normally he's inhuman, to which his lawyer responded in part:

“He was like a patient in an operating table where a mad scientist [was] committing experiments on him and he he had no anasthesia,” an agitated O’Mara said after a reporter asked if Zimmerman ever showed emotion. “He didn’t know why he was turned into this monster, but quite frankly you guys had a lot to do with it.”
