George Zimmerman sues NBC Universal

According to a story appearing in CNN.com on December 7th, George Zimmerman, accused of killing Trayvon Martin, is suing NBC for the edited 911 phone call which they aired repeatedly, starting some six weeks after the event actually took place.

The CNN article contains a great deal of useful information on how the death was suddenly and after-the-fact given major prominence, and deliberately manipulated to grossly misrepresent Zimmerman’s actions.  This created an atmosphere of guilt that will not only make it nearly-impossible for him to get a fair jury trial, but created immense anti-White sentiment in America’s Black population some six months before the presidential election, with a Black incumbent running for re-election.

Why did it take several weeks for the sudden and massive media frenzy to commence?  Had propagandists been searching for a suitable incident to exploit to boost Obama’s campaign, and needed some time to prepare this massively unfair, racially-based blitz?  It all seems very suspicious to me.

According to CNN’s article, Zimmerman’s lawsuit states that “NBC saw the death of Trayvon Martin not as a tragedy but as an opportunity to increase ratings, and so set about to create the myth that George Zimmerman was a racist and predatory villain”, and accuses NBC of multiple deletions of dialogue, and of inserting unrelated content in such a manner as “to make it appear that Zimmerman was a racist, and that he was racially profiling Trayvon Martin.”

The suit also observes that “Due to the defendants’ journalistic crimes, Zimmerman has been transformed into one of the most hated men in America.”

It will be interesting to see where this lawsuit goes.  Quite apart from the alleged “crimes” committed against Zimmerman, NBC’s actions were dangerously inflammatory and may well have resulted in deaths and injuries throughout the United States which might otherwise have not occurred.

I really hope that Zimmerman is successful, and that the mass media in the U.S. is taught a sharp and painful lesson that acting in such a manner is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
