We have been assured that there is nothing but sweetness and light coming from the Mainstream Media and the Left blogosphere (forgive the redundancy).
Yes, we are being taken to task for jumping to conclusions and not letting the process play itself out.
After all, it is the Right who is screaming “If there is no arrest, shoot him in the chest.” (Oops, scratch that.)
Monomakkhos is duly chastened. What was I thinking that the MSM could in anyway at all be biased?
Could it be items like this falsified transcript put out by NBC?
A transcript of the complete 911 call shows that Zimmerman said, “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.”
The 911 officer responded saying, “OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?”
“He looks black,” Zimmerman said.
The relevant portion of the transcript of the call is as follows:
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.
The abridged conversation between Zimmerman and the dispatcher that NBC ran on March 27 has been blasted by media watchdog groups as misleading. Critics have said the edited version was made to suggest that Zimmerman targeted Martin because he was black — an accusation by many that is still under investigation.
Or how about this video from ABC which they were forced to show (having earlier said that the video did not support Zimmerman’s account of that night)?
More examples like this will appear. In the meantime, let us meditate on the fact that these were put out by two of the three major news networks and not some feverish internet blogger living in his mother’s basement. If this isn’t an example of blatant media bias, nothing is.
Mark my words: this walkback by the Left will soon turn into a stampede. And the mayhem perpetrated by those who seek moral justification for their criminality will further sunder this nation.
