Zimmerman Describes Events That Led to Trayvon Martin Shooting

The video of George Zimmerman describing the circumstances surrounding the shooting of Trayvon Martin during a computer voice stress analysis test administered by police. Watch the video and decide for yourself whether or not Zimmerman is sincere and honest in his recounting of the events that led upto the shooting. It seems to me that he truly acted in self-defense…not that the minds of those who to see him lynched will be changed. The link to this video released by his attorney and posted at the Miami Herald website is:

MSNBC Fixes False Report That Made Zimmerman Look Racist, Doesn’t Acknowledge Error

NBC told The Washington Post Opinion blog that it would investigate its handling of a piece on the “Today” show that ham-handedly abridged the conversation between George Zimmerman and a dispatcher in the moments before the death of Trayvon Martin. A statement from NBC:

“We have launched an internal investigation into the editorial process surrounding this particular story.”

Great news right there. As exposed by Fox News and media watchdog site NewsBusters, the “Today” segment took this approach to a key part of the dispatcher call:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

Here’s how the actual conversation went down:

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 difference between what “Today” put on its air and the actual tape? Complete: In the “Today” version, Zimmerman volunteered that this person “looks black,” a sequence of events that would more readily paint Zimmerman as a racial profiler. In reality’s version, Zimmerman simply answered a question about the race of the person whom he was reporting to the police. Nothing prejudicial at all in responding to such an inquiry.

A racist t-shirt featuring the photo of the man who shot Trayvon Martin is now available for purchase.

The shirt’s “pussy ass cracker” line is apparently a reference to lyrics from the rapper Plies’s song “100 Years,” which bemoans stiff sentences handed out by racist judges.

Does This Reflect Media Bias?

My friend Michael Levine posted this on Facebook.  Why do you think the various media have used the old photos instead of the more recent ones?
