Zimmerman's wife not sure if it was self-defense; milking the talk shows
The George Zimmerman case is one that the Left just keeps milking. As I told some friends a few w weeks ago after the divorce announcement and confrontation news, that it was only a matter of time till she gets on some talk show and drops hints that it may not have been self-defense. This has now happened. What you have to realize here is that many people have figured out that the way to make $ on talk shows and interviews is to say what the interviewer/network want to say. And, it always feeds weak egos to get on TV and be treated like a celebrity. Trayvon Martin's family and friends milked the opportunity and Mrs. Zimmerman perhaps decided that it was here turn for the limelight and perhaps revenge. Fox wants to interview people who say what the conservative viewers want to hear. ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC want to interview people who say what their conservative viewers want to hear. The interviewees are smart enough to figure out what they need to say/hint/imply. It 's good for the interviewees, but bad for balance coverage and often bad for the truth. Also bad because non-newsworthy items drown out the truly newsworthy. When are the American people going to realize that the media are trying to manipulate them?
