NBC PURPOSELY edited the 911 tape to make Zimmerman out to be a racist, which intun caused wide spread violence. Zimmerman does have a case. Whether he pursues it or not is up to him and his lawyers
You can bet your buried stash... the media will SCREAM first amendment rights of free speech until the clouds shake if they are dragged into court... folks who have carved out the kind of power the press has (by lieing) will not give it up easily.
What worries me: The Supreme court is a lot more political than we realize (rather than upholding the Constitution as they are charged to do). SCOTUS tends to rule based on their interpretation of public opinion. Now if this case goes to SCOTUS... the ruling may very well be subtly designed to cripple free press... Oh yeah, they will wrap it in the most carefully tailored spin you have ever heard... only folks who TRULY UNDERSTAND the Constitution will be able to unwrap the spin. The result will be the govt gaining the power to squelch the press... something that will destroy freedom as we know it. Do we really want that? If not... it is time to make a LOUD noise concerning what we believe the Constitution demands from polecats... and make them accountable. We had a chance to do so a month ago... however we did not (the reason is not important) we did NOT vote out the idiots... (that is all that matters). Now we will pay the price... quite possibly for the REST of our lives.
Yes... I guess they can go thru the motions of a lawsuit... but precedent has been set by another case that the news orgs dont have to air the truth.... they can air anything they want.
I dont think anyone said anything that wasnt the truth.... they just presented it in an interesting manner.
By altering the 911 tape, NBC portrayed George Zimmerman as a racist AND his family had to go into hiding, this is WILLFUL AND INTENTIONAL INFLICTION OF DISTRESS to Zimmerman and his family, which in turn lead to nation wide violence against white people, EVEN THOUGH Zimmerman is Hispanic. regardless of guilt or innocence
Yea thats for sure . So often you have to take the good with the bad .
Funny how soon everyone forgets about Richard Juel and the settlement he got from several different news groups and the FBI well over a million for harming him in the Atlanta Olympic bombing. Thank you very much
Zimmerman doesnt have a case....... I know some of you think of lawsuits as like the lottery..... but it isnt as easy as you guys hope it is.
Not gonna get zilch...... nada....nothing.....
"They" settled out of court because "they" realized "they" were going to get creamed by any jury. People settle out of court to mitigate court costs and legal fees.
I suspect the same thing will happen with the Zimmerman case. I also suspect the settlement will include language that doesn't permit Zimmerman or his family to publicize the settlement and forbids them from EVER talking about it, to anyone
