Quote Of The Week

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

Statement from NBC.

Read the article.

What is NBC looking into you ask?

The Today Show was running a fair and balanced story on the Trayvon Martin shooting. They were playing audio of the 911 call.

This is NBC's version of the tape:

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

Now, the real version:

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.

Hey, wasn't it MSNBC that ran this picture about racism at the Tea Party rallies:



Instead of this one?


Hmm...

I'm sorry, I worked 12 hours today. I just don't have the energy to act surprised tonight. If someone else has the energy please feel free to step in for me.

I don't get the juxtaposition of the photos with guns...but as for the other stuff, isn't that remarkable?

Hannity catches a lot of stuff like that...and Brent Bozell isn't far behind.

There's no end to the conniving and misinterpreting by the media.

There is news now that audio experts say it's definitely Trayvon yelling for help, not GZ......I wonder if we'll ever know what really happened.

Z, MSNBC took the bottom photo (a black man holding a gun) and cropped it into the bottom photo and used it for a discussion about racism and guns at Tea Party rallies. They failed to mention the man holding the gun was black.

I don't have the energy. I really don't ever, anymore.

The framing of Zimmerman has been despicable and shameful, much of the media and the rest of their liberal racist buddies ought to hand their heads in shame.

Brooke, it does wear you down doesn't it?

Mk, that's just more of our fair and balanced media

Even if Zimmerman is found not guilty in a court of law, public opinion has been ramped up so much by the mainstream media that Zimmerman will never have a life now. **sigh**

AOW, it's the age-old question in a case like this - "where do I go to get my life back?"
