Quite apart from what they first reported, ABC apparently recently released this photo of George Zimmerman. It tells one all one needs to know about the shaping and distorting of news by the mainstream media.
Prior to the photo release Alan Dershowitz publicly criticized the prosecution’s case:
The arrest affidavit did not mention the photograph, or the bleeding, gashes, and bruises on Zimmermans’ head. Professor Alan Dershowitz of Harvard Law School stated upon release of the arrest affidavit that it was “so thin that it won’t make it past a judge on a second degree murder charge … everything in the affidavit is completely consistent with a defense of self-defense.”
Dershowitz added to his comments after the photo became public:
After the release of the photo, however, Dershowitz went much further, telling Breitbart News that if the prosecutors did have the photo and didn’t mention it in the affidavit, that would constitute a “grave ethical violation,” since affidavits are supposed to contain “all relevant information.”
What is left in this country that is still ethical? What people and institutions can still be trusted?
