CNN airs courtroom image of George Zimmerman’s address, social security number

posted at 4:01 pm on July 1, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via Twitchy and Mediaite, the excuse will be that it was an accident, that they were caught by surprise when unredacted personal information was shown in court. Maybe. They know not to air images of the jurors, they know not to air grisly photos of the crime scene, but apparently they don’t know that sometimes police reports with people’s vital info are shown onscreen in court during trials.

Here’s the thing: Even if this shot is accidental, the only reason the proceedings are on TV to begin with is because the media’s obsessed with the idea that Zimmerman committed a racial atrocity and must be punished for it. Trials typically don’t get saturation coverage because the facts are interesting and tragic and there’s a legit dispute as to whether the prosecution’s or defense’s story of what happened is true. They get saturation coverage because there’s an obvious innocent victim/diabolical defendant dynamic that the media’s interested in. From the beginning, with the Times pushing its “white Hispanic” description of Zimmerman, the press has strained hard to make the Trayvon Martin shooting a passion play about whites treating black life cheaply in modern, post-civil rights America. As terrible as the prosecution’s witnesses have been thus far, there is no scenario — zero — in which most of the press concludes that acquittal on the murder charge is just rather than unjust. Zimmerman must be guilty, morally if not legally. Progress demands it. Against that backdrop, why be surprised that CNN would show his social security number onscreen? The cameras are there because the press has issued its verdict. Intentional or not, this is part of the sentencing phase.

This is so sad. It’s frightening to see that in America, if you are unfortunate enough to come to the attention of the left for whatever reason, they will destroy your life. It’s not just Zimmerman, it’s innocent college and high school students who dare to go against the leftist orthodoxy, or small business owners who want to live by their faith, or even large corporations. It’s anyone who gets their attention, and must be made an example of.

This is what America has come to.

His credit and identity security is screwed now. The same type who gets a pass when he tweets “kill whitey” will feel justified in using his personal info to commit financial fraud. Then there are others who are just opportunists.

I see the prosecution’s strategy. Overcharge with 2nd degree murder, and aim for a compromise verdict of manslaughter. I don’t think a jury of 6 women is going to be sympathetic to a claim of self-defense in the use of deadly force with a gun. I see a manslaughter verdict, or a hung jury.

a capella on July 1, 2013 at 4:16 PM

I thought some interesting new (at least to me) information came out today. Everyone has been reporting that Zimmerman left his truck to follow Martin, but according to Zimmerman’s version of events, he got out of the truck looking for a street sign or a house number to give to the 911 operator. At that point, it sounded like Martin was stalking Zimmerman, not the other way around.

I missed most of this, but at one point during the video (or audio?) of Zimmerman’s statement, he mentioned something about Martin circling his truck? Does anyone have an idea when in the timeline this occurred?

HarryBackside on July 1, 2013 at 4:17 PM

The Zimmerman case is nothing other than a modern-day lynching. Trayvon Martin had been suspended from school, was known for getting into fights at school, had marijuana in his system, and was known for getting high by mixing watermelon fruit juice, skittles, and cough syrup. The prosecution’s star witness has admitted to lying to the court. And we have photos of a bloodied-up Zimmerman, which corroborates Zimmerman’s version of events that he was being assailed. Had Zimmerman wanted to initiate a conflict, it would have made the most sense to shoot Martin immediately rather than wait until he was pounded to a pulp to shoot.

The prosecution has nothing here. Zimmerman should be acquitted of all charges.

The Court Reporter’s Creed

My profession stems from man’s desire and his
necessity to preserve the happenings of
yesterday and today for tomorrow.

My profession was born with the rise
of civilization in ancient Greece.

I was known as a scribe in Judea, Persia
and the Roman Empire.

I preserved the Ten Commandments for posterity and
was with King Solomon while building the temple.

I was with the founding fathers of the
United States when they drafted the
Declaration of Independence. My hand labored
upon the scroll that set forth the Bill of Rights.

The immortal Abraham Lincoln entrusted me
to record the Emancipation Proclamation.

I was commissioned to be with Roosevelt at
Yalta. I was with Eisenhower on D-Day
and with MacArthur at Tokyo.

I have kept confidence reposed with me by those
in high places, as well as those in lowly positions.

My profession protects the truthful witness,
and I am a nemesis of the perjurer. I am a
party to the administration of justice under
the law and the court I serve.

I discharge my duties with devotion and honor.
Perhaps I haven’t made history, but I have
preserved it through the ages.

In the past I was called a scribe. Today I am the court
reporter who sits in the courts of our country. I am the
voice writer who sits in the United States Congress.

I am the Verbatim Court Reporter!

Unfortunately, he will then have to defend himself from the inevitable civil lawsuit for “wrongful death” that Trayvon’s family will likely file. Don’t forgot OJ won the criminal court battle, but lost the civil suit that followed.
Zimmerman will need to sue NBC and CNN to make sure he’s got enough to defend himself from the civil suit.

The Journalist’s Creed

The Journalist’s Creed was written by the first dean of the Missouri School of Journalism, Walter Williams. One century later, his declaration remains one of the clearest statements of the principles, values and standards of journalists throughout the world. The plaque bearing the creed is located on the main stairway to the second floor of Neff Hall.

I believe in the profession of journalism.

I believe that the public journal is a public trust; that all connected with it are, to the full measure of their responsibility, trustees for the public; that acceptance of a lesser service than the public service is betrayal of this trust.

I believe that clear thinking and clear statement, accuracy and fairness are fundamental to good journalism.

I believe that a journalist should write only what he holds in his heart to be true.

I believe that suppression of the news, for any consideration other than the welfare of society, is indefensible.

I believe that no one should write as a journalist what he would not say as a gentleman; that bribery by one’s own pocketbook is as much to be avoided as bribery by the pocketbook of another; that individual responsibility may not be escaped by pleading another’s instructions or another’s dividends.

I believe that advertising, news and editorial columns should alike serve the best interests of readers; that a single standard of helpful truth and cleanness should prevail for all; that the supreme test of good journalism is the measure of its public service.

I believe that the journalism which succeeds best — and best deserves success — fears God and honors Man; is stoutly independent, unmoved by pride of opinion or greed of power, constructive, tolerant but never careless, self-controlled, patient, always respectful of its readers but always unafraid, is quickly indignant at injustice; is unswayed by the appeal of privilege or the clamor of the mob; seeks to give every man a chance and, as far as law and honest wage and recognition of human brotherhood can make it so, an equal chance; is profoundly patriotic while sincerely promoting international good will and cementing world-comradeship; is a journalism of humanity, of and for today’s world.

I think it is clear to anyone watching this trial that this is all a farce. Even the media knows it is a joke, which is why they are already stirring the “riots if Zimmerman is acquitted” stories.

I hope that when this guy is acquitted, he has enough money to move to another country so he can live in peace. It is obvious that no matter how this trial turns out, his life is over here in the US.

This is a horrible, horrible incident that has happened. It is a tragedy that a kid died. But I don’t think Zimmerman intended to kill him and I do believe he thought he was defending himself. Apparently so did the police, since they originally didn’t charge him. But two wrongs don’t make a right. And the press continues to attach itself to cases and portray it as racist, when it is clear race played no part. This is the reason why the general public has become less and less interested in “racist” incidents. They simply don’t believe it anymore. The press is the little boy who cried wolf one too many times.

This is the reason why you see such support behind Paula Dean….and the Chick-fil-A guy. It’s not that people agree with Dean, they just think they mob mentality and politics of personal destruction has gone overboard. Same thing with Chick-fil-A….most people I know who sat in line for 2 hours to get their chicken sandwich did so, not because they don’t support gay marriage (in fact, in my social group it is 3-1 in support of gay marriage), but because of the intensity of the reaction to some guy saying he supports traditional marriage and the extreme desire to see the man destroyed.

I expect to see more and more support for people like Dean and the Chick-fil-A guy and the PC crowd is starting to illicit the opposite of their goal.

And they call themselves liberals.

They’re calculating and heartless destroyers of people. George Zimmerman is not even a human being to them. He’s a prop, an object, a despised “thing” or representation. His free existence offends them to their cores and moreover his destruction and their power to command it is their sustenance.

Liberalism, the way it has been practices for a half century, thrives on enemies. The KKK, the polluting industries, The Corporation, “Society”, “Theocracy”, “Fascists”,…

That’s why they all dress themselves as “fighter”s in their campaign ads.

I caught that. GZ was NOT following TM. Another Big Lie propagated by LSM to influence the court and incite the people.

Like they did with the Journal News. Those editors and reporters were quaking in their boots when the tables were turned on them.

Meanwhile in libtard stronghold Obama-voting Baltimore, Maryland which now has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country – 40 shootings in 10 days, 16 fatal.
Can any of you libtards name any of those victims?
And as the WSJ is asking – How’s that gun control working out for ya Maryland?

Well, look where a former CNN anchor/host has landed. I’m not surprised.

I live in South Orlando, about 20 miles from Sanford. My friends from out of state keep asking me if I’m afraid of riots that might ensue if Zimmerman is found innocent. My response to them is always “Nah, if anything does happen it won’t get this far. But if it DOES, well let’s just say that I’m prepared to defend myself”.

No explanation for either the POS or Foxx having such overwhelming hatred for whites.

Zero reason except for the advantages proffered by race hustling.

It’s a lucrative practice. Just ask Al and Jesse.

“If Obama, the white African American president. . .”

Instant classic!

I saw a t-shirt at the gun show in Denver yesterday that I really liked: “My biggest problem with the zombie apocalypse is not letting on that I’m really excited about it.”
For some people, just a slight modification……

dentarthurdent on July 1, 2013 at 5:17 PM

a passion play about whites treating black life cheaply in modern, post-civil rights America

Really? Perhaps the MSM should drop in on Chicago, Newark or Oakland on any weekend if they want to see a LARGE body count of Black people….caused by Black people.

But then that would be exposing “The people’s Worker’s Paradise” for the Democratic sham that it is.

We don’t have particularly strong gun laws here. In Cincinnati, so far this year, murders are up 60%. AFAIK, all black on black. Not a single white Hispanic perp I know of. If I may suggest a theory … Obama has been President for nearly 5 years now. Is it possible the Obama theory of life in the US has fostered (festered) this increase?

By the way .. 16 fatal shootings in 10 days, that’s a horrible loss of life. And the maybe 40 dead in Cincinnati so far this year, I don’t know any of their names either. Maybe due to the lack of white Hispanic or police involvement.
