Well, FOX just pulled an ABC/CNN editing job on the Zimmerman interview.
I think Zimmerman has been treated horribly by the media, but I’m not sure he did himself any favors last night. Overall, he was flat and made some statements that are going to haunt him. I’m wondering what’s with these attorneys allowing their clients to go on tv for interviews, as in this case and also in Sandusky.
I felt the following statements were going to be picked up for replay and they are cold:
Hannity: “Is there anything that you regret? Do you regret getting out of the car to follow Trayon that night?”
Zimmerman: No, sir.
Hannity asked. “Do you regret that you had a gun that night?”
“No, sir,” Zimmerman, 28, replied. “I feel that it was all God’s plan and not for me to second-guess it or judge it.”
(Cringe) That is a stunning statement.
FOX just played this clip, but they cut it off just before the “I feel that it was all God’s plan…..”
I don’t know what he meant by that, because how could it have been “all God’s plan?” But whatever he meant, he did say it and it should not have been edited out. Misleading. That does not accurately inform the person who did not watch the interview.
P. S.: Well, now they are doing a segment discussing the “God’s plan” quote, but still the tape was edited to exclude it earlier this morning.
