Up In Smoke!!!
UP IN SMOKE!!! (The travesty-OOPS- I mean TRIAL of George Zimmerman)
WHO WAS ON TOP?? THE MEDIA!!!!
I wasn’t there. I didn’t see what happened. I haven’t seen all the evidence.
And evidently, neither will the rest of the world.
But it doesn’t matter.
Because regardless of what the Law of the United States says about being innocent until proven guilty, the fact is: the media decides it for us.
Welcome to the court of public opinion.
Of course the defendant has had his day in court with a handpicked jury of his (peers?). Really?
Closing arguments are being or have already been presented.
The judge has gone off on Mr Zimmerman in an unprecedented outburst that made me believe she just doesn’t LIKE the guy.
I don’t know. But MAN! It all leaves me with more questions about the TRIAL than I have about the murder of Trayvon Martin.
Wait! See that? I just did it too! Without a conviction yet of George Zimmerman by a jury, I just called him a murderer!
Why? Because I have had it pounded into my skull by the Mainstream Media and Talking Heads that George Zimmerman MURDERED Trayvon Martin in COLD BLOOD!
If we believe what the MSM tells us, and I am sure a LOT of us do, then what’s the point of a trial anyway? Just watch CNN, MSN, etc, and they’ll tell you what think, what to believe, and then by the time the spectacle has played out on our tv screens it’ll be just another scripted reality tv show conversation over a cup of coffee and a bagel!
I am not saying George Zimmerman is guilty or innocent. I’m not on the jury.
I have no opinion either way on the matter.
But you can rest assured that the media does!
Is this what our country’s legal system has become?
A public spectacle?
And if that’s the case, then how are we any different now as a nation than we were during the Salem Witch trials?
I’ll tell you how we’re different:
NOW EVERYBODY can watch as the Mainstream Media and News outlets pile the wood up around the stake, tie the defendant to the stake, pour oil on the wood and torch it! From the comfort of our own living rooms we can watch the defendant and all pretenses of a fair and impartial trial GO UP IN SMOKE!
