NBC falsely edited the 911 call to make Zimmerman appear guilty. Two NBC News employees have been fired. Then ABC News claimed that there were no injuries on the back of Zimmerman’s head which ran contrary to his statement that he was physically assaulted by Martin during their altercation which resulted in Martin’s death.
Footage clearly reveals injuries to Zimmerman’s head right where he said they were.
Photos of Martin were used from when he was slightly younger (and childish looking) while an older booking photo of Zimmerman was used. Martin’s menacing snarl photo from Twitter was ignored by the media because he looked “gangster.”
Then there is the infamous CNN “enhanced audio” which supposedly reveals Zimmerman said “nigger” when referring to Trayvon Martin, who was black.
Now CNN says they listened to the audio in “a different room” and have come to the conclusion that there was no racial slur used.
Finally, there was the New York Times which called Zimmerman a “white Hispanic.” According to Rush Limbaugh, only five examples of this term can be found in the New York Times’ archives which go back to the 19th Century.
President Obama’s mother was white but, surprisingly, the New York Times never referred to him as a “white black” or “half-white black.”
Before (and since) the Zimmerman-Martin shooting there have been numerous examples of blacks deliberately targeting whites and either savagely beating them up or murdering them. And since the shooting there have been several examples where blacks have said they did it because of Trayvon’s death.
And yet, these shootings go largely unreported in the media.
Part of this is sensationalism and the selling of papers or the boosting of ratings. There is little doubt that over the past two decades “news” has become more sensational, celebrity-driven, and more openly agenda driven.
Ironically, as news organizations have become less reliable in their reporting, blogs have become more accountable to the truth, offering a contrast to what used to be the “big boys” of media.
But in our analysis we cannot ignore the racial aspect of story coverage. On Capitol Commentary we have shown multiple examples, from numerous journalists, of how important it was for a non-white to win the presidency. Any objectivity held by most of the media was put aside so as to help Obama beat a white man (John McCain) and a white woman (Hillary Clinton).
From the Washington Post’s Deborah Howell:
The Post provided a lot of good campaign coverage, but readers have been consistently critical of the lack of probing issues coverage and what they saw as a tilt toward Democrat Barack Obama. My surveys, which ended on Election Day, show that they are right on both counts.
Why would journalists tilt so heavily towards picking a subjects’ race over facts? Mostly because ideology trumps reality. Liberals largely believe that whites have oppressed the opportunities of minorities with the Original Sin being Colonial slavery. They view American society as a big chest of drawers with whites at the top and blacks in the bottom drawers. Latinos are somewhere above blacks and Asians are somewhere below whites.
Liberals want to re-shuffle the drawers and they (misguidedly) think that if they downplay black-on-white violence and play up white-on-black violence that this will somehow tear the top down and build the bottom up.
This mentality continues into all things. Thus the “rich” are demonized while the “poor” are lionized.
These story lines are fed to the public. When there is a backlash like a baby unwilling to consume another spoon of food or the facts show differently, suddenly the “truth” emerges (as with the Zimmerman-Martin shooting).
Because the media never really presents the facts (such as Gallup finding more Americans are anti-abortion than pro-abortion) when you confront a Liberal with things they literally cannot believe it because everything in their entire world has told them differently.
This is how mind control programming works.
Thus, in the end, it was a type of reverse racism which appears to have driven what used to be respectable news gathering organizations to attempt to conceal – to be very kind – the realities behind the Zimmerman-Martin altercation.
Ultimately, these organizations have blood on their hands not only for stoking the fires of civil unrest, keeping race hustlers like Al Sharpton employed, but also of providing excuses for thugs to beat and murder people “for Trayvon.”
