ABC News retracts statement that Zimmerman wasn't injured


Video LINK Article LINK
quote:

ABC News has re-digitized video of George Zimmerman taken shortly after Trayvon Martin's shooting.

The video was unveiled as an exclusive this morning on "Good Morning America." ABC was the first news organization to show the original tape.


Reporter Matt Gutman said the clearer video shows "what appear to be a pair of gashes or welts on George Zimmerman's head."


Well interesting. ABC swore to me that Zimmerman wasn't injured at all even though you could pretty clearly see a gash on the back of his head.

I guess with NBC getting caught editing the 911 tape, all the other decided to go back and cross their T's and dot their I's.

You mean the cop in the video wasn't examining his head for the hell of it? Imagine that.

This incident has been politicized into irrelevancy as far as I am concerned. I'm tired of both sides. It's a shame that a young man's death has turned into such an embarrassing circus.

Matt Gutman has been fanning the flames daily in this Zimmerman-Martin debacle. Glad to see he may be reigned in a bit after this.

So do we think that ABC PURPOSELY doctored the original video?

It wouldn't surprise me if they did, but this entire story is a constant reminder to not jump to any conclusions.

No one thinks they doctored it but they covered up a major portion of the video with their chyron. A portion that just so happened to cover Zimmerman's face and head.

This is getting fricking sad... Im not pro-zimmerman, I am pro-truth. I think the courts will figure it all out.


But either way, I think Zimmermann should sue the frick out of both ABC and NBC (I think they were the 911 call group) for slander.

Who could have seen this coming?

quote:

The letter also described how Zimmerman was one of “very few” in Sanford, Fla., who spoke out publicly to condemn the “beating of the black homeless man Sherman Ware on December 4, 2010 by the son of a Sanford police officer.” “Do you know the individual that stepped up when no one else in the black community would?” the family member wrote. “Do you know who spent tireless hours putting flyers on the cars of persons parked in the churches of the black community? Do you know who waited for the church-goers to get out of church so that he could hand them fliers in an attempt to organize the black community against this horrible miscarriage of justice? Do you know who helped organize the City Hall meeting on January 8th, 2011 at Sanford City Hall??” “That person was GEORGE ZIMMERMAN. Ironic isn’t it?”


Jeez...

Why do the media have an agenda in this story?

Whay aren't they content to just report the facts?

Facts aren't that sexy!
