Good--I hope he cleans their clocks after that crap they pulled

Well, he should.

But this is a separate issue than who I think was standing whose ground.
 
2012-12-06 06:18:27 PM
Agreed, sue these bastards.

I hear they ran an ad for Skittles.
 
2012-12-06 06:47:47 PM
"NBC saw the death of Trayvon Martin not as a tragedy, but as an opportunity to increase ratings."

Every news station sees every event with a catastrophe level below "9/11" exactly that way.

He wont win

I aint all that up on liable or defamation laws, but I do know it is insanely difficult for one to prove such.
 
2012-12-06 07:37:45 PM
"I do not know, because of my situation, how I will be able to provide for my wife and myself in the future so I expect NBC to be held responsible."

Translation: I farked up and NBC has deep pockets. I expect someone to provide for me.

cman: He wont win

Yeah...no, it's not. It's a pretty straightforward case:

1. Defendant published untrue statements
2. Defendant knew they were untrue when they published them
3. As are result of Defendant's actions, Plaintiff suffered damages.

That's basically it. And NBC had better open their checkbook before this reaches a jury.
 
2012-12-06 08:11:30 PM
NBC was only standing their ground.
 
2012-12-06 08:14:12 PM
it's cute how the conservatives in this thread are defending a racist murderer who is still set to stand trial for his crime.

violentsalvation: Well, he should.

Completely agree. And Trayvon Martin should sue George Zimmerman for bringing a handgun to a Skittles fight.

Oh, that's right, Trayvon is dead.

Poop thread!
 
2012-12-06 08:25:37 PM
No George, you portrayed yourself as a racist and predatory villain, you racist and predatory cocksucker.

In this case, it's called "false light defamation." NBC purposefully edited the 911 tape knowing that it would make it look like he told the operator Trayvon was black without reason.

Zimmerman's own actions speak louder than anything any news outlet could say. I saw the jizz on Hannity's chin, but even that interview went badly for George.

I've been stockpiling popcorn for when this goes to trial.

1. NBC played the 911 tape.
2. Without informing anyone, NBC edited the tape to make Zimmerman sound more racist.
3. Zimmerman now suffers more greatly in the media and the tape will make it less likely for him to find an impartial jury.

except.. that isn't what they're doing. they're claiming that he has a libel case against the media for saying that he's racist.

A: He does have a case.
B: I was simply saying how one can disagree with someone's actions but not condemn every single thing about them. NBC farked up big time on this and did make him look worse.

cretinbob: Zimmerman's own actions speak louder than anything any news outlet could say.


Shooting somebody that's beating your face in isn't racist.

Now, if you said something like, "He looks suspicious... he's black" right before the shooting, yeah, you'd look like a farking racist, which is what NBC aired.

What actually transpired on the 911 call was:
Z: "He looks suspicious."
O: "Is he white, black or hispanic?"
Z: "He's black."

Or something really close to that.

NBC knows they f*cked up. They already fired everybody responsible for the SNAFU. Zimmerman has a solid libel case here.

So can we just complete the circle here and have the Martin family sue Zimmerman for every penny he gets from NBC?

NBC made him shoot a kid in cold blood?

Leaving aside the racism comment, it is noteworthy that Republicans on here have almost universally lined up to defend the shooting of an unarmed black man. The historical analog cannot be completely ignored.

Sure. But that doesn't change that they gave away the racist vote to Republicans in the 60s and the GOP has run with it.

1. Zimmerman gets out of his car
2. Zimmerman follows a kid because he was black, wearing a hoodie and walking casually
3. Zimmerman shoots the kid, killing him.

Hey, I didn't bring up history or political parties. The days of lynching, fire hoses and cross burnings belong to one party.  Agreed, though that racists now vote for the other party.

There are a few... and I can't understand their position or reasoning, since Zimmerman initiated the confrontation disregarding the 911 dispatcher's directions. To me, it's pretty cut and dry that the deceased was the one standing his ground.

You edit tapes to make him look racist and retouch photos to make him look more white while hiding bruises etc?

If found guilty, he'll be murdered in prison. If found not guilty, he'll be murdered on the street - all thanks to the race-baiting media turning this into a circus.

He needs to relocate to some foreign country to avoid the murderous Jackson / Sharpton / Spike Lee generated farktards.

More of a Bull Connor argument. I didn't bring up history, but if any group is to blame for the actions of Democrats in the past, it sure as hell isn't Republicans. And "the historical analog cannot be ignored" sounds an awful lot like blaming the present [Republicans] for actions 100 years ago. Visiting the sins of the Democrat fathers on today's Republicans, regardless of their faults, is disingenuous at best. Historical analog or no, lynchings, fire hoses and cross burnings belong to the Democrats.
