    seems aBC edited the Juror interview

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/07/26/did-abc-news-deceptively-edit-zimmerman-jurors-controversial-interview-an-unlikely-source-is-calling-them-out/

    and before the left starts besmirching this because it is from the Blaze-here is where they got their info


    http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/frame_game/2013/07/did_george_zimmerman_get_away_with_murder_no_juror_b29_is_being_framed.html

    from the article:
    ABC News hasn’t posted a full unedited video or transcript of the interview. The video that has been broadcast—on World News Tonight, Nightline, and Good Morning America—has been cut and spliced in different ways, often so artfully that the transitions appear continuous. So beware what you’re seeing. But the video that’s available already shows, on closer inspection, that Maddy has been manipulated and misrepresented. Here are the key points.
    Advertisement

    1. The phrase “got away with murder” was put in her mouth. Nightline shows ABC interviewer Robin Roberts asking Maddy: “Some people have said, ‘George Zimmerman got away with murder. How do you respond to those people who say that?’ ” Maddy appears to reply promptly and confidently: “George Zimmerman got away with murder. But you can’t get away from God.” But that’s not quite how the exchange happened. In the unedited video, Roberts’ question is longer, with words that have been trimmed from the Nightline version, and Maddy pauses twice, for several seconds, as she struggles to answer it. “… George Zimmerman … That’s—George Zimmerman got away with murder. But you can’t get away from God.”

    Was just reading something on this myself. The media is downright disgusting.

    Forget biased left or biased right. Just don't be fooled into thinking there exists an "objective" major media outlet that bases its operation on "truth" rather than sales/marketing.

    Go GATORS!

    The Left is fundamentally dishonest, by definition. They come from a perspective of arrogance, entitlement, pompousness, self-righteousness and superiority that creates a core belief that their ends justify their means and that they are doing it for "our own good".

    It is truly disgusting to see what the media has become.

    Not only is the left fundamentally dishonest, but they promote policies that "preserve the right to cheat". For example battling with voter ID laws. Stop and think about how stupid battling against this is when IDs are required for about everything. But....if you are a lefty libbie...requiring voters to have a picture ID may mean organizing a few thousand more bus trips, buying a few million more meals and making even more promises to your dependent on the government base.

    They pander to those that are lazy and uninformed. How many people will search out the transcript of the interview to see what was asked and how it was answered?

    On the other hand, how many will repeat this as if it was what the juror said verbatim? Using it to prove that which has been proven to be untrue.

    Just for clarity, Zimmerman got away with nothing, it was a justifiable homicide. Which I have heard are on the rise since legally protecting yourself with deadly force was made an option. For those that disagree with this policy, don't agonize too much, running away and hoping your attacker doesn't catch you before the police come and save you is still an option. That is still legal also!

    It's Great to be a Florida Gator!

    Disgusting.

    We live in a world of sound bites and ratings wars, from the way we report our news to the way we elect our public officials.

    Not sure how to hold media accountable other than by changing channels, unless they break laws like News Corp did in the UK.

    I don't think they care if they got exposed. 99% of those on the left want to believe the version & perception of what they heard on ABC.

    Not only are many of the right fundamentalists fundamentally dishonest, but they promote policies that "preserve the right to cheat". For example loading voter ID laws to impede voting by some ethnic groups.


    If cons are so concerned about making sure that only American citizens vote and doing it fairly without discrimination-----how about mandating an ID form that is by law universally accepted throughout America/

    Thing is, there is certainly such a law. Yet some red states are trying to over-ride fed ID from being used in registering for voting and as voter ID for elections for federal office. And instead go for voter ID requirements that are selectively biased.

    seems like the GOP governors are Governor Tarkin's
    The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more voters will slip through your fingers.
    Tarkin: Not after we demonstrate the capabilities of these new GOP voting laws.

    as much to do with the thread topic as the con whose words I altered to present a mirror for him to look at...


    just like the con who posted
    and which I modify to the following
    both my adaptations(satire) and the original comments by the cons I quoted are in line with your point of view---- us vs them mentality that by its very nature is arrogant, not healthy for the country, and not true when you (and others) claim or insinuate that all others of opposite point of view are the same way AND that you yourself(or your side) is clean as new fallen snow(you and your side as well as I and libs---aren't pure in terms of virtues, nor totally evil in terms of vices)

    your claim of LMSM certain may have merit....but don't con yourself that RMSM doesn't lie, deceive , etc
