They simply have to find him guilty of something, don't they? George Zimmerman, presumes the media, is an evil man. There must be something which can be hung on him to sustain that belief.
Recently, it's been a domestic violence charge. A dispute which itself has become something of a dead end: the police say they've completed their investigation, his estranged wife is less willing to press charges, and there is apparently no clear evidence about what exactly has happened surrounding the whole episode. Yet the story is still a lead article on the Huffington Post.
But why? Merely because Zimmerman must be an animal of some sort. If a racism charge can't be held against him, then the media will go after the next best thing: domestic abuse, which is generally akin to sexism.
Let it go, liberal media. Take a breath, pump the brakes, and accept that you just aren't always right. Or at the least, that in both this incident as well as the Trayvon Martin case, the available evidence is insufficient enough for you to sustain your cause. Stop trying to create news; if the Martin incident had never occurred, you would have zero interest in the Zimmermans' imploding marriage.
That, perhaps, tells us all we need to know. The media needs causes; it lost one in a not guilty verdict. It is trying desperately to create guilt somewhere else, because it simplyu cannot be wrong about things like this. This is not objectivity. It's a witch hunt.
But we don't believe in witches anymore, do we?
