I think it will be tough to find a story that has been more thoroughly misrepresented by the mainstream media that the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case. The liberal media and the PC race baiters conspired to try to lynch a man who did nothing wrong. On the contrary, he was only trying to do the right thing by his community and in the end, was only defending himself.
But the media ginned up a totally fictional story about a white (actually latino) guy who stalked and murdered an innocent black teen in cold blood, because he hated his skin color. It was an out and out lie. It was a complete fabrication right from the get go. And their invention even included careful editing the audio tape that preceded the shooting in order to distort the facts and make George Zimmerman seem as guilty as they could.
But the truth has since come out and opinions are changing.
So this poll about how the public feels about the shooting is really irrelevant. It tells us nothing except that the media was caught with it's editorial hand in the cookie jar. And as the 'actual' facts have been released (of course) the public got it right. It's a shame we couldn't get the actual facts from the media in the first place. Just think of how helpful that would have been.
If I were George Zimmerman I would sue NBC news for their creative editing of the audio tape. that's at least part of the reason his life has been turned upside down.
