The NY Times lifts their embargo on coverage of the New Black Panther $10,000 bounty on Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman.
A shift to "fair and balanced"? Well, circumstances made it possible to present the story in a light that is favorable to the Martin family:
Slain Teenager’s Parents Appear on Capitol Hill
The parents of Trayvon Martin called on the public on Tuesday to refrain from violence and from trying to apprehend the man who fatally shot their son last month.
...A lawyer for the family, Benjamin Crump, said relatives “don’t want anyone making an arrest of George Zimmerman,” the man who shot the teenager on Feb. 26, “other than the authorities.” A group called the New Black Panthers has said it will give a $10,000 reward to anyone who captures Mr. Zimmerman, who has been in hiding.
It would have been hard to report on the parents comments without providing a bit more context. Hence, baby steps! However, that call for restraint was not quite enough to end their embargo of Spike Lee's retweeting of the wrong address for Zimmerman's home.
