Fox Blames President Obama for Zimmerman Verdict

Well that didn't take long. I think I threw up in my mouth watching Geraldo going on and on about poor Zimmy and how it was a political prosecution. The whole crew is delighted Zimmy got off.

If anyone thought that Geraldo Rivera wasn't done saying offensive things about the murder of Trayvon Martin now that the jury has found George Zimmerman not guilty, they would be sadly mistaken.

Rivera has already gone on record blaming Martin for his own death by "dressing like a wannabe gangster" and wearing a hoodie. And as we discussed here, he was blaming the Rev. Al Sharpton for using "race politics" to force the prosecution to bring a weak case against Zimmerman. Whether the case was weak, or Florida's laws are just really horrible, or whether the prosecution just did a bad job or not will be a point of contention and debate for some time to come, I'm sure.

What's utterly ridiculous is where Fox's Geraldo and his fellow host Jeanine Pirro went next, which is to of course blame President Obama for this mess as well, because he dared to weigh in on the case when he said that if he had a son, he'd look like Trayvon. He politicized the case! He forced them to take it up when it was obvious that Zimmerman wasn't guilty! Sorry, but no, President Obama did not force them to take up this case. Public pressure did along with the media attention the case received. And no one demanded that Zimmerman be found guilty. Just that he had his day in court.

1. Can't look to their own involvement

And support of the Tea Bag and Bircher elements which caused this travesty in the first place.

Typical for Faux.

3. I wouldn't self-reflection from FAUX anymore then from DICK Cheney.

 

Nary a decent bone in any of them.

2. Foxnews hates the POTUS.

 

I've never seen any other news station so dedicated to spreading RWing propaganda and still farcically calling itself a 'news station' like Foxnews.

They should be forced to show a disclaimer at the beginning of every hour; WE HATE OBAMA AND WE DON'T HIDE IT.

4. Only on FAUX would Obama be responsible for this. They are obsessed with blaming Obama

 

Nutcases. (And Geraldo's an ass. Always has been.)

5. I'll save you the trouble of watching Fox or Fox News.

Every story goes like this:

Shit happens.
Blah, blah, blah.
It's Obama's fault.

Geraldo's bucking for a raise.

6. So the jury let zimmerman walk even though he killed an unarmed

teenager because Pres Obama said in March 2012 that if he "had a son he would look like him"?

Well, then the jury was tainted and there should be a mistrial.

9. Must be time for a Special Prosecutor

Or avoid the delay and go right to impeachment. Fox would salivate.
