Top 10 Excerpts from Zimmerman
vs. NBC News Complaint

Breitbart´s Big Journalism, by John Sexton

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/7/2012 9:53:56 PM

On Thursday, George Zimmerman filed suit against NBC News and three NBC producers he accuses of intentionally painting him as a racist. Zimmerman and his attorneys have now done what many in the new media only dream of doing, holding the major media responsible for their biased and misleading output. The language in the complaint is blunt. It calls NBC´s coverage "yellow journalism" and refers to "journalistic crimes." Most broadly, the complaint accuses NBC of trumping up a racism narrative for ratings, with a name check of the Today Show and Rev. Al Sharpton in particular.

Comments:
Is there any hope this would cause these networks to be more careful in showing their blatant bias? You really have to wonder if hitting them where it hurts could change their behavior.

This is long overdue. The "yellow journalism" crowd has been getting away with lies, manipulation, and trouble-making for many years. Time for real "Justice".

Why stop here. George should get in touch with the Duke La Crosse team (for a start) and turn this into class action suite. Let´s get the damages pay out into the billions. Everyone that has been slandered should get a piece of the pie. Progressive activists have set the legal precedance, make them live up to their own words. Have you been unjustly accused of racism? NBC should pay you reparations. Talking to you, Tea Party.

The problem, 3, is that in the Duke case, the wrongdoers were 1) the Duke administration, 2) the Duke "Gang of 88" faculty signatories, 3) the corrupt DA, Michael Nifong, who was desperate to win reelection. I don´t think the media played the same role as in the Zimmerman case.

I listed the wrongdoers in that order because, though Nifong led the charge, the people at Duke should have known better, and they should have had a sense of responsibility toward their own students.

The one I´m hoping for: The American People vs. NBC News, for the journalistic crimes of

1. lying and covering-up for the Democrat candidate for president in 2008 and 2012
2. intentionally misleading the public that NBC´s slander and libel of the Republican candidates for president and vice-president (especially VP candidate 2008) was "objective news"
3. presenting intentionally false narratives, disguised as "objective news" of the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street
4. failing to investigate any wrongdoing by any Democrat office holder, especially Barack Obama

It´s a slam dunk.

I hope George wins and wins really, really big. It´s way beyond time for the old media to be revealed for their bias and their manipulation of the news. Funny how hitting a liar where it hurts - the pocketbook - changes behavior.

They definitely ratcheted it up. Do you remember when the Trayvon´s mom started to say it was all a mistake and she just wanted closure (parphrased.) Someone got hold of Trayvon´s dad, who you hadn´t seen, and he came out completely the opposite of his wife - this is a crime, it´s racist, etc etc. The next day, the wife says her words were taken out of context. You just know the media and the "leaders" of the black community talked to them and told them what the parents role was and what they were to say. It´s all a movie being directed by the usual suspects.

I, for one, would like to see a tee shirt with the COLOR picture of Zimmerman...the one with his nose out of joint, his lip busted up, and blood all over him. No, not the black and white one that made him look like some kind of monster. I want the one that proves Sweet Little Trayvon was beating the living snot out of him when he finally said " Enough of this BS, this little bustursd´s out to kill me!"

Shameless Left Wing bias is now a badge of honor. ´Exposing´ it has relatively little value, as it divides people into two groups. Those who already knew. And those who now know and don´t care.
What will hurt is if we start getting them in their pocketbooks. A Zimmerman victory, even if minor, will give future victims and their lawyers courage.
As for the MSM, by their own shallow, stupid and short sighted attitudes they are bringing on a Newsweek like - 1 dollar - fate on themselves. We just have to outlive the vermin.

Think back when this first came to your attention - when our so-called "media" was blaring this story. What was your first thought? Mine was that, by using Zimmerman´s last name, they wanted him to be Jewish. As a Jewish friend on mine used to say. "We get stereotyped - everybody thinks that we have all the money!" Then they compounded this by showing Martin as a much younger boy. So subconsciously, NBC & other media wanted you to think, "A rich, Jewish man chased & killed a little black kid who was innocently skipping home from the candy store!" They wanted their viewers to be outraged - and keep tuning in. Simple & diabolical.

Even if the suit ended without compensatory damages, I would hope that the legal proceedings go on for a LONG time in order to rack up tens of millions of dollars in defense costs for NBC. The plaintiff´s attorneys should call Poster #17 as their expert witness to attest to the cause and effects of what was truly yellow journalism.

FTA: "Their goal was simple: keep their viewers alarmed, and thus always watching..."

This is your daily dosage of "news" from local stations through the networks. None are exempt from this broadbrush, NONE. Women particularly love health and food scares. Don´t believe it? Count the minutes devoted night after night to these subjects on your favorite station - especially to "women´s health". Other hooks are race, crime, and "personal interest stories", happy or sad. I NEVER watch television news of any sort because 99% is directed to ginning higher viewership, i.e. station revenue, not informing me.

Class action lawsuits are the answer. Hundreds join in the cost, there are some great lawyers specializing in class action.
Millions of unknown Tea Party members could join in and cause network chaos by deliniating thousands of untrue things said about them. The Tea Partiers all over America had made records of the networkk´s careless slanderings. For racism, include Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, David Letterman, Whoopie Goldberg just for starters to add power to the indictments.
DodgeBoy, above, gives us a partial list of examples:
1. misleading on Fast and Furious - Mexcio
2. obfuscaating the Benghazi killings
3. Character assassination of Romney
4. Fear mongering Iran´s nuclear buildup
5. Hiding the American drug cartel´s war against its own citizens and imprisonment.
7. So much else to bring out with the fool proof device of class action. All it takes
is one person to start it, and them sign up and publicize for more, just like any solid mmarketing plan, watching it grow. Don´t forget to sue Diane Sawyer the worst of them.

# * Speaking of the offspring of Brian Williams..
Are you aware that the daughter of Brian Williams
co stars on the same HBO show as the woman who made the virginity / voting ad for Obama ?
Allison Williams ( who is very pretty and has a beautiful singing voice ) has a lot of sex scenes.
In one scene , her character went into a bathroom
and performed a solo and very graphic sex act .
Complete with moaning and groaning.
Brian Williams told an interviewer in April that he was euphoric after watching his daughter do the
the X rated scene .

" What is it like watching Girls for you? Are you covering your eyes?
No, no. It’s kvelling, pride.
It’s incredibly great. Her co-creator and I have known always that she was going to be an actress.
So it’s fantastic. "

" You’re fine with the awkward sex scenes?
Unmitigated joy ".
Brian Williams is a pervert . No father should ever watch his daughter doing this , even " acting ".
And he expressed " unmitigated joy " and " pride " after watching it ??? Disgusting.

Go ahead and add Obama to the suit; his "...if I had a son he´d act like Trayvon..." helped rouse the rioters and the african-american panthers and negro pussies into threats and "this is for trayvon" mayhem. Too bad barry didn´t let out his inner punk for all to see back in 2007.

In 1987 Al Aharpton handled the publicity of Tawana Bawley, who falsely accused NY police of raping her. After rascist allegations thrown around by Sharpton, the Grand Jury found she made eeverything up. Sharpton has not apologized.

The day after the shooting, when I heard NBC use the term, "white hispanic," I knew a racial incident was being manufactured. A punk attacking a neighborhood watch person is not news. Shooting an innocent young black kid is if you are of another race.

But funnily enough, black kids can shoot each other in droves and it´s just another weekend statistic.

So, don´t expect that commie/fascist courts will resolve this against the totalitarian government. Especially, if boehner´s/robert´s cohones are in obozo´s vise!

I support George Zimmerman´s efforts to sue NBC, but he has a tough road to hoe. The "journalistic" cowards at NBC will hide behind the 1st Amendment, and most likely will escape without any major damage. But at least the public will know the truth of their reporting malpractice.
Good Luck, Mr. Zimmerman

Al Sharpton:everyone remembers Tawana brawley, which not only ruined the lives of many innocent people but bankrupted the civil rights division of NY State resulting in no legitimate cases of civil rights violations being investigated. But do we remember the deaths caused by Sharpton´s targeting of Freddie´s Fashion Mart, claiming that it was white owned when it was actually black owned. He caused the deaths of Angelina Marrero ,Cynthia Martinez . . . Luz Ramos ,Mayra Rentas,Olga Garcia ,Garnette Ramautar . ,Kareem Brunner. If you think these were "people of color," you´d be right. He called some of the worlds great philosophers "homos" He led a racist anti-Korean boycott. That any decent man should ever deign to shake his hand, let alone seek his counsel as our President has done, is an outrage.

"all to profit and attract attention to their television news programs."

As we all know, there was more to it than that. The media vendetta against Zimmerman also enhanced and promoted the fraudulent Democrat party ideology that Americans are racist, and guilty unless proved innocent. How smug and satisfied with themselves the media moguls and their hired hands must have been.
Godspeed to this lawsuit.

Earlier this week Bill O’Reilly called Democratic congresswoman Barbara Lee a “race hustler” and Lee shot back at O’Reilly’s “disgusting and divisive” language. On Friday night O’Reilly stood by his words and called Lee both a “pinhead” and a “liar” in response. O’Reilly mocked Lee’s insinuation on MSNBC that on the right, “we all use phrases that denigrate African-Americans.” He went through a list of examples he believes bolsters his “race hustler” charge and said, “How about pinhead, congresswoman? You like that better?” O’Reilly condemned Lee for “flat-out calling people with whom she disagrees racist” and then having “the gall, the nerve”

Having done his darndest in The Hague, Barack Obama is taking his “cast of 100s” caravan to the sands of the Saudis. Riyadh may seem a strange place to end a European tour, but Mr. Obama often does the unexpected. What he does not do when travelling, however, is deal directly with the really bad stuff. Even at The Hague, as tens of thousands of Russian troops massed on Ukraine’s border, he sought to divert attention from the calamity on Europe’s frontier. Instead, he asserted that Russia’s aggression was a sign of weakness, and Moscow would sooner or later come to

New allegations are raising additional questions about former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell´s involvement in crafting the administration´s flawed narrative on the Benghazi attack, ahead of his scheduled testimony next week on Capitol Hill. Morell is set to testify publicly for the first time on Wednesday about his role in crafting the controversial Benghazi "talking points," which initially blamed a protest for the deadly attack. The former acting director, and deputy director, was called to testify to explain potentially conflicting testimony he gave Congress about the talking points and the administration´s role.

The Kroger grocery store chain "is in the process of transitioning to unarmed security guards across the company." According to 10TV in Columbus, Ohio, "Kroger said armed guards will remain in some of its locations," but it is not saying where. U.S. Protection Service is the company that provides security for Kroger. The service recently sent a letter to its employees informing them that "effective March 29, its guards will be ´completely unarmed – no weapons, no handcuffs, no chemical repellant, no baton, etc.´" The letter adds that the company views the decision as "very disheartening." 10TV interviewed shoppers in the Columbus area who

White House takes step toward

Washington Examiner, by Zack Colman    Original Article

The White House took steps Friday toward issuing methane emissions regulations at hydraulic fracturing sites, a move that would slash greenhouse gas emissions in hopes of meeting President Obama´s climate goals but will invite backlash from industry. The news is a victory for environmental groups, which note that methane -- a short-lived, potent greenhouse gas that has a 20 times greater impact on climate change than carbon dioxide -- is the largest remaining unregulated greenhouse gas, accounting for 9 percent of U.S. emissions. The oil and gas industry, however, has warned that regulating methane emissions would stunt domestic energy production by raising

The White House on Friday touted the story of a “staunch Republican” who says he’s getting the best coverage he’s ever had under ObamaCare. “I am a staunch Republican, a self-proclaimed Fox News addict, and I didn´t vote for the President,” Mark Beard, a retired psychologist from North Carolina, wrote in a letter posted on the White House website. “And I´m here to tell you that ObamaCare works. I´m living proof.” Beard said he was paying $428 a month for chemotherapy treatment and was upset when he got a notice from his insurer saying his plan would be canceled. But he said

A widely-held notion on the left holds that Republicans and conservatives just “love” Russian President Vladimir Putin. Groups like Media Matters for America hold up conservative commentators like Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as examples of this phenomenon, but Media Matters is confusing making unfavorable comparisons between Putin and President Barack Obama for admiration for Putin. But now the left, which has been eager for weeks to claim that the GOP is deeply enamored with the revanchist president of an expansionist Russia, now has a real champion for Putin’s aggression in Europe: Rep.

Joining a long line of Democrats distancing themselves from Obamacare, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel hinted that he didn´t support the President´s original plans for the healthcare take over and advised the President to take a different approach, though he shied from saying just what that meant. In a March 27 interview on cable business network CNBC, Emanuel claimed that he offered the President a "contrary opinion" on Obamacare but his advice was not heeded. "He asked for my opinion," Emanuel said during an interview on CNBC´s Squawk Box. "I gave it to him and why I thought we should do

Following several years of "constructive dialog" with the LGBT community, the U.S. Justice Department is now training law enforcement officers on how to better understand and help the "transgender community." "It’s clear that such training is as necessary as it is overdue," Associate Attorney General Tony West told a gathering at the Justice Department on Thursday, as DOJ´s Community Relations Service kicked off its new "transgender law enforcement cultural professionalism training." The training will help law enforcement agencies "improve their understanding of the transgender communities they serve and improve their work with those communities," said Deputy Assistant Attorney General James Cole, who

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

Via America Rising and the IJR, is this the key that finally unlocks the enigma of Harry Reid, tinpot demagogue? Maybe, from moment to moment, this guy just … doesn’t realize what’s coming out of his mouth. Hard to believe he could forget saying on the Senate floor that all ObamaCare horror stories — all of them — are a GOP/Koch brothers fairy tale designed to besmirch the stellar reputation of the Affordable Care Act. Those remarks got heavy coverage in conservative media, and even got picked up at WaPo. You don’t toss a grenade that powerful without choosing your

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

In an address to the House on Wednesday, Alabama Representative Mo Brooks read aloud a letter sent to him by Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur. The letter holds nothing back while detailing the excessive costs and regulations that Dr. Gill calls Obamacare’s “war against doctors.” Here is the full text of the letter, courtesy of Rep. Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors. The medical profession has never before remotely approached today’s stress, work hours, wasted costs, decreased efficiency, and declining ability to focus on patient

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable. The reformers´ success in providing

One is a world leader who has been praised for his humility and outlook on the world. The other is an American president, once the international superstar of the political stage. So it is no surprise that President Barack Obama has travelled to the Vatican in Rome possibly to get some tips from the popular Pope Francis who now even has own weekly glossy magazine dedicated to him. As he sat down with the Pontiff at the Vatican this morning, Obama called himself a ´great admirer´ of the pope. Their historic first meeting comes as Obama´s administration and the church

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay. He got off on the wrong foot by introducing Stefano

London - England’s public health agency says two people have caught tuberculosis from a pet cat, the first time the bacterial disease has been documented to spread from cat to human. In a report published Thursday, Public Health England said it concluded TB samples taken from the cat and from two people in contact with the animal were “indistinguishable” and that the cat was considered to be “the likely source of infection.” Between December 2012 and last April, veterinarians identified TB in nine pet cats in Berkshire and Hampshire, west of London. Public Health England said the two people who caught TB were recovering and said the risk

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.
