“I am George Zimmerman”
I’m white, male, and I voted for Obama twice. So this is not about race or even politics. This is about right and wrong, justice, the American legal process, journalistic integrity, fairness, honesty.
George Zimmerman is an innocent man, and by all accounts was just trying to protect his neighbors and their property. He was doing what we would all want our neighbors to do — looking out for us. And he’s no racist. In fact, the evidence says quite the opposite.
But this blog is mainly about holding the media accountable for their reckless and shameful coverage of the legal case, and their year and a half long character assassination of Mr. Zimmerman.
Because of their selective, pandering, and unabashedly one-sided coverage, certain members of the media not only forced an innocent man and his family into exile, they corrupted the American legal process and helped set race relations in this country back thirty years.
Don’t let them get away with it. You may be the next George Zimmerman.
