Regardless of whether or not it changes anyone's perception, why edit it in the first place. The reporting on this matter has been abysmal. <sigh>
oh wow that is really pathetic by NBC.

There should be some sort of FCC regulations that prevent agencies from doing this. Doctoring/editing footage to incite racial issues is about the scummiest thing you could do. You understand now why I have such a disdain for corporate media?

I thought that had been post prior to now what they did. CBS did the same thing to Bush using fake documents about his service.

Police Car Shot Up in Trayvon Martin's Neighborhood - Yahoo!

I absolutely detest the public media and how they've covered this case. They continue to make Trayvon's appearance as it was years ago, and not the Trayvon that was current. It's obvious to what they are doing and it's a shame a man could be convicted just off of public cries due to the influence they get from the media.

If the DA has enough evidence to counter Zimmerman's story, then by all means they need to proceed with a trial and arrest. From the sounds of it, this seems like a DA bending to public cries much like the Duke Lacrosse rape scandal. We all saw how that turned out.

Does it really matter how he looked? Is the life of someone who dresses like a hood rat worth more than someone who dresses like a tender naive shelter child?

A life lost is a life lost.

I'm far more concerned about what actually happened than how this kid looked at the time of death.

Re: Trayvon Martin Case

Ultimately it doesn't matter how anyone "looked". At the same time, if you can't see the media spin and how they came out full bore on the race issue in this matter, I think you're denying some other realities. The photos chosen were clearly done with the intent of maximizing sympathy for Martin and for demonizing Zimmerman.

From the initial characterization of Zimmerman as white (modified to White Hispanic - a term I have never seen before and doubt I will ever see again), the choice of photographs, the editing of the 911 tape, it is clear the media had an agenda. It was an agenda that served no one well - but it sure sold a lot of papers and air time.

Seems like the story has pretty much fizzled except in Sanford where it sounds like they're one crime away from a race riot.

Feels almost like Troy Davis v.2.0

I think you misinterpreted what I said. I'm saying the media is painting this image of



when in reality it was most likely closer to this....






See, had that first guy walked through the same neighborhood, I can assure you Zimmerman doesn't profile him nor would he follow him. The second guy definitely would send flags up to any neighborhood where the tenants aren't dressed as such. They are wanting to paint this image of a kid who had no reason to be profiled (which is probably not the true) and was merely shot because he was black.

That isn't the case. The truth of it is Trayvon was profiled because of his attire, and was shot because the guy following him was a overzealous asshole that took the law into his own hands even though he was told to back off.

Just report the news and stop with the agendas. Especially ones that could send a community into a race riot.

Some good points made here.

I couldn't agree more. It is sad a person died, either way. But this is what I have been saying all along. They show a picture of a 12 year old kid to drub up sympathy and tug at your heartstrings. If they would have showed the real Trayvon as he looked today and as many people have already seen, i doubt there would be much sympathy, if any...
