    Zimmerman's friend says there is not enough info out there. That is why the MSM is not running with new info. It will all come out. People who put out info now, may later say they led the way, but MSM needs multiple and credible sources backed up and verified.

    It is time to let the case takes it's course. To hell with social media and the wisdom of crowds/mobs

    MSM Media San Francisco Paper:

    Police: Trayvon Martin beat man before being shot


    With a single punch, Trayvon Martin decked George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who eventually shot to death the unarmed 17-year-old, then climbed on top of Zimmerman and slammed his head into the sidewalk several times, leaving him bloody and battered, according to an account released Monday by authorities.

    That is the account Zimmerman gave police, and much of it has been corroborated by witnesses, authorities say.

    Trayvon Martin Shooter Says Teenager Went for His Gun - ABC News

    ABC News:

    Zimmerman had claimed he had called police about Martin, whom he found suspicious, then went back to his car when Martin attacked him, punching him.

    The new information is the most complete version yet of what Zimmerman claims happened on the night of Feb. 26 when he shot and killed the teenager.

    Did Hannity say he saw a rush to judgement by or in the Media? Seems the media is getting things straight before leading with -- news.

    It's always the same issue when this kind of shit goes down... the media print half truths, and fill in with some fictional 'facts'... and, hey presto, the real facts get lost in the bullshit. Wise people do not rush to judgment. Simple as that.

    The straight news media cannot report just anything. Opinion pieces can. My point is the media is not rushing to judgement and people are criticizing them for it.

    The media is not perfect and anyone who cannot read between the lines and use good judgement with news, most likely lacks the critical skill set needed to be an informed citizen capable of making intelligent assumptions and judgements. Democracy is messy. It's a circus.

    That's why i didn't use the word 'news', just media. Many people appear to struggle to differentiate between 'news' and 'comment' or 'opinion'. The media is - currently - opining about this case without balance.

    What fascinates me is how happy people seem to be with trial by media... that concerns me. Have we, as a nation, become that stupid that we think it's ok for the media to decide who's guilty?

    The longer he hides, the more speculation there will be. If it wasn't for the media, this case would have been swept under the rug. I appreciate the media for getting this out.
