Why Americans Distrust the Media

When Americans first heard the story of the death of Trayvon Martin, we were told that George Zimmerman, a “white-Hispanic.” What is a "white-Hispanic"? That term has rarely been used before now. But the NY Times and the rest of the media chose that term so as to turn this tragic shooting into a racial matter. It wouldn't play as well if it were just a Hispanic who killed a young black teen. I suppose we should now start classifying President Obama as the first white-African president. 

The narrative was written by the media before the facts were even known. This was a manufactured controversy from the very beginning. Consider the following:
Race pimps, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, to the rescue

  • Media, Hollyweird and Dems rush to judge a man before he is charged with a crime, much less given a fair trial.
  • Lying Media show a 13 year old Treyvon, when the victim? was age 17, 6' 3" and already had a criminal record.
  • (Added note) On 4/9/12, I caught CNN interviewing George Zimmerman's lawyer. The CNN news anchor made a point of saying that George Zimmerman was 5'9" and weighed about 165 lbs. Then she said, Treyvon Martin was taller and may have weighed more. How much taller? How much more did he weigh? How come you have the numbers on George Zimmerman, but not for Treyvon Martin? Is it because you don't won't your viewing audience to know that Treyvon was 6'3" and weighed considerably more?
  • New Black Panthers Call for Vigilante Justice in Trayvon Martin Case, offering a $10,000 bounty for George Zimmerman. Where is the outrage and investigation from the President and the Justice Department? If the KKK had done something similar, putting a bounty for the capture of a black man, do you think the President or Eric Holder would sit back and say nothing? No way, they along with the media would make this front-page headlines. But when a black racist group does the same thing, it's met with a wink and a nod from the White House and the liberal media.
  • Obama is using the tragic shooting death of Trayvon Martin as a political diversion from his failures as president. He even said Trayvon looks like the son he never had. This is shameless exploitation and most disgusting. Now we learn the police have a report from the night of the shooting that says Martin jumped on Zimmerman. 
  • Trayvon Martin was on a suspension from school when he was tragically shot last February 26th. His school, Dr. Micheal M. Krop Senoir High School has not given any details. His family has also evaded the issue. Why isn't the media interested in getting the reason why Trayvon was suspended from school? What are they hiding? It has been suggested by Trayvon's brother that he was suspended for assaulting a school bus driver.
  • Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, the two "race pimps" are exploiting this whole affair and trying turn this into a racially-motivated hate crime. Why would they do this? Because their entire livelihood is furthered by stirring up racial tensions. At no time has the press reported that George Zimmerman tutored black children on weekends for the past several years.
  • NBC News has fired a producer for editing a recording of George Zimmerman's call to police the night he shot. NBC originally doctored the audio to make Zimmerman sound like a racist.
  • ABC News has admitted to doctoring a police video.
This is the same media that rushed to judgment and condemned the Duke Lacrosse players as guilty before the facts were even known. Mike Pressler, coach of the lacrosse team received threatening emails and hate calls. The politically-correct Duke administration forced him to resign. On the same day, the Duke president, Richard Brodhead (a real piece of work if ever there was one--he'd throw his own mother under the bus to save his skin) suspended the lacrosse team for the remainder of the season. Fox News was the only news outlet on record as revealing all the facts concerning this case while the remainder of the media hid some of the salient facts.

This is the same Al Sharpton who came to the defense of Tawana Brawley, a 15-yr old from Wappangers Falls, NY who in 1987 accused six white men of raping her. All of this was inflamed by Al Sharpton who suddenly appeared on the scene as her defender. A grand jury investigation concluded that Tawana Brawley made up this story.

After reading this, you may conclude that I think George Zimmerman is innocent. Well, you'd be wrong. I don't think either Zimmerman or Trayvon Martin are innocent. What I would like is for the media to give us all the facts instead of once again, rushing to judgment and turning this into a racial incident when it wasn't. 

Jared Loughner,  registered Democrat
This is the same media that rushes to judgment time and time again. When Gabrielle Giffords and 18 others were shot outside a Tucson supermarket, the media immediately tried to tell us that the shooter, Jared Loughner, had been influenced by the hate speech coming from talk radio and Rush Limbaugh. Turns out that Jared Loughner NEVER listened to talk radio and he was a Democrat. It turns out that lack of civility had nothing to do with the shooting of Gabby Giffords, but we were told by our President, by the Democrats, and the media that it was because of a lack of civility that led to her shooting. The LEFT and the drive-by media attempted to use this shooting to SILENCE talk radio and Rush Limbaugh.

When it comes to a lack of civility, talk to the number one target, Sarah Palin,  who has been called every vile, despicable name under the sun; yet you'll never hear the President or the media rush to her defense.

If there is any moral to this rant, it's this: Don't be so quick to believe everything you read or hear. Don't rush to judgment. Examine your template. Those with a liberal template are quick to blame Republicans, Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, Talk Radio, Conservatives. Those with a conservative template are quick to blame Pres. Obama, Eric Holder, CNN, the Democrats, the Media, the Liberal Press--And according to past history cited in this post, those who are conservative right-wingers are usually seeking the truth and the facts rather than a race riot or a good ol' fashioned lynching of the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Geo. W. Bush, Glenn Beck or Sarah Palin.
