I still can't believe that CNN found it necessary to let George Zimmerman pimp himself out to them. All the good they did by covering the Michael Dunn trial the way that they did, was overshadowed by promoting and conducting the Zimmerman interview.
Sadly, money always wins out in the end.
BTW, I hear that George Zimmerman declared that he is homeless in that interview. If he is, I would like to personally prepare a place for him right here in Philly to stay.
Speaking of the Michael Dunn trial, I guess Don Lemon might not be moving over to FOX Views after all. (And he tried so hard to be the straight shooting black man who isn't afraid to call out his own people.) Apparently he pissed off the white establishment over there and today they let him have it.
"Before the verdict in the Michael Dunn trial was announced Saturday (found guilty of four charges, including second-degree murder, but a hung jury on the question of first-degree), CNN’s Don Lemon very clearly expressed on the air how outraged he was at the whole thing, saying it should be a very clear, open-and-shut case for the jury.
Today Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett fired back with some pretty personal barbs aimed at Lemon and his knowledge of the law.
Jarrett blasted Lemon for lacking objectivity about the case and called it “pathetic” that Lemon would feel personally affected by the case. He said, “The sum total of what Lemon knows about the law and this case… could be written on the head of a pin. And there would be plenty of space left over.”
He concluded by tweeting, “What a pompous, pretentious jerk.”' [Source]
"Lacking objectivity"? That's rich. A Fox Views host attacking someone for lacking objectivity. News flash, he is a black man in America; he should be personally "affected by the case".
But the reverse race- baiters over at FOX would never see it that way, they are too busy defending the Michael Dunns of the world and their right to kill innocent teenagers.
Of course FOX and their news people had a chance to show us how to cover a story the proper way but....wait....they never touched this story.
Hmmm, I wonder why?
Still, I am glad to see that Don Lemon fired back at this clown.
Don, I might have to remove you from the house. In fact, I am calling the Drop Squad right now.
