Trayvon Martin - How Main Stream Media Is Scamming America

It is all about the ratings, market share, page views and lately "Main Stream" media has discovered that racism sells.

According to the Washington Post NBC's "Today" show ran the edited audio of George Zimmerman's phone call to a police dispatcher, seeming to show Zimmerman saying, "This guy looks like he's up to no good … he looks black."

A transcript of the complete 911 call shows that Zimmerman said:

"This guy looks like he's up to no good. Or he's on drugs or something. It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about."

The 911 officer responded saying: "OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?"

"He looks black," Zimmerman said.

Cedar's Take:

The abridged conversation between Zimmerman and the dispatcher that NBC ran on March 27 is nothing less than a clear sign that journalistic integrity is dead.

Much like Time Magazine's darkened OJ Simpson the national media continues to air a single photo of Trayvon Martin showing a child on 13 vs a much older 17 year old.

Time was accused of racism by minority groups for its photographic alteration of the famous O.J. arrest photo. The editors defended their choice by saying that they had taken that creative license to show the shadow that had descended on his reputation that week.

Illustrator Matt Mahurin was the one to alter the image, saying later that he "wanted to make it more artful, more compelling." Enough readers, however, said that they saw the white man stacking the deck by "demonizing" the black man, that Time did something it had never done before and has never done since. They issued a second cover and pulled the first one. Essentially this meant that only mail subscribers ever saw the first cover.

The main stream media photo of Trayvon Martin at age 13.

Versus the photo Trayvon Martin himself posted to his MySpace account.

There are two Trayvon "Hoodie" photos the one the main stream media is circulating.

The above lighten and softened photo above and the original photo below.

So why all the manipulation? The truth is that racism sells.

There was a time when "Main Stream" media was the source that got the facts right. Journalists who dug deep and presented all the facts.

Gone are the days of true journalism, today it is all about the money.

The "MSM" looks for opportunities to racebait at every turn. They seek to create controversy in order to maximize their circulation or viewership. There is no desire to get things right, the desire is to line their pockets. It is disgusting.

In the Martin case, it seems that the truth is out there but no one desires to report it. That would kill the story and thus the revenue. It's going to take the stae's attorney down there to wrap this up or some other story the "MSM" can jump too.

I thought the photo of Trayvon in a hoodie looked a little odd.

The fact is the Trayvon story wouldn't work if the facts where clear.

I now think Trayvon attacked the guy not knowing he had a gun. Was the attack provoked maybe but that is not a point of law.

Was the force excessive sure, but what would you have done?

Clearly Trayvon had some issues, much like any kid white or black. Divorced parents, change is schools girlfriends, grades, peer pressure to be a thug, a drug dealer, to have money and status.

Trayvon had a chip on his shoulder.

George is he adult version of with many of the same issues. He didn't quite fit in, not white, but not latino, a wannabe cop with out the moral fiber or background to be a cop.

These two would have never crossed paths except for a long list of random events.

Amazing story if you remove all the MSM hype.

The MSM has spun this story so much that no one will ever remember the truth much less accept it.

People KNOW the truth but they refuse to accept it because it does not jive with the faux "white (Hispanic) on black crime" ....we all knwo the truth of the matter is that "black on black" crime is the leader with "black on white" crime in #2.

Obama just hosted a screening of "To Kill a Mockingbird" and invited school children to attend.

What exactly is he trying to do?

How about you all (who insist this was a race crime) get all the facts. 

1) Read the actual police report that includes several witnesses and the fact he was taken to the PD immediately afterwards: 

2) The 911 tape was doctored by MSNBC - which they have now acknowledged (they call it an error, I call it blatantly lying to mislead and re-direct the truth and facts) 

3) Zimmerman is not white, he is Hispanic....the non-white/white Hispanic label was introduced back in the 80's, but few paid attention to it until Obeyme regime began including it on ALL applications during his first year in office to "integrate" the races, just like the whites did to American Indians many decades ago.

4) Obeyme decided this would be a good time to make a case for "racial divide" and keep those who cannot think for themselves enslaved in his dictatorship. Of course what those folks do not realize is that once he has gotten their cooperation they will not longer be needed and are then just as obsolete as all other humans who do not agree with his agenda.

5) The most racist groups in America all started and continue to be a part of the Democratic party: KKK, BP, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, etc. (Personally I like neither party, they divide We The People)

6) And of course the last truth that blacks can't be racist, something that MSM and the above folks refuse to accept. Racism exists in all races....that is a fact! All you have to do is look at what is going on Sanford for proof. This is a case where logic and common sense have fallen prey to Obeyme and his great racial divide agenda. (Please note I am from Indian ancestry and married to a black American - NOT an African America)

Lastly, I would suggest everyone take a look at Kevin Jackson's latest article, this man speaks more truth than any one I know. I realize many might take offense, esp since they refuse to look at themselves and their own life....
