It just keeps getting worse for the media-generated false narrative that George Zimmerman was a hulking 220+ white bruiser and racist that stalked and murdered an angelic kid guilty of nothing more than walking home from the store.
ABC and NBC have both been stunned to find their false narratives portraying Zimmerman as a white man with a hatred of blacks undermined. Their fictions have been gutted by the reality of Zimmerman being a multiracial man from an even more multiracial family with a cast of friends and family that looks like a Benettoncasting call.
The lynching was further undermined by the annoying bloggers that kept bringing up annoying facts, like police reports and video evidence that suggest Zimmerman’s account of being attacked is indeed plausible, if not certain.
And now, the fiction of Zimmerman being a massive man stalking a smaller kid takes a fatal blow. Zimmerman is 5’9″ and 170 lbs, just 10-20 lbs heavier and 4″ shorter than the 6’1″ football player in the prime of his life that he says assaulted him.
None of this, of course, changes the facts that the grand jury and district attorney investigating this case will have to mull over objectively in the pursuit of justice. What it does, like the Duke lacrosse case, the the Tawanna Brawley incident (another Al Sharpton creation), and other similar cases, is that the actual evidence shows that the media is far more interested in creating news to drive rating and generate advertising dollars than it is in merely reporting the facts.
All the facts of the Trayvon Martin case have not come out yet, but what we have seen beyond the shadow of a doubt is that the mainstream media is so desperate for rating that they will say or do anything to get the public’s attention, even if they have to talk their way out of their lies and misdirections later. It is a disgusting reveal of the corruption at the heart of our news media, and perhaps justification for harsher slander and libel laws to reign in a lawless and blood-thirsty press.
