Good morning. I guess.

narciso

Ok, I hit my limit on Times articles, but is what Liz Alvarez saying actually true, aboutthe Neighborhood watch, OT, Treacher having some fun with Hilary Rosen and the Mole at Fox

DebinNC

In the explanded story Michael Cooper was added to the byline. Maybe he's Ms. Alvarez' new factchecker.

Cecil Turner
The case will probably hinge on what happened next.
Not likely. The case hinges on whether a judge has the cojones to dismiss the case based on a pretrial motion of immunity brought by Zimmerman . . . with the mob's howling echoing in his ears. (I'm betting on high-minded noises about how taking the case from the jury would be inappropriate.)

Then, the case will be argued in front of 12 unemployed people too stupid to find a plausible excuse to avoid a drawn-out trial. They'll spend weeks on the fawning family and earwitnesses deploring what happened to sweet young Trayvon . . . and five minutes on the self-defense claim. He's forked.

(Hey, what can I say? I'm cynical before my second cup of coffee.)

OldTimer

OT/ I could be encouraged at the Romney campaign's zippy-quick push-back against the forces of evil. My worry has been all along that they would go soft on the Axelturfers, forgetting all the strong-arm tactics they used against their own.

I'm suspecting there's something in the watercooler at SDK Knickerbocker, that encourages that much stupidity, brain slugs
are my best bet.

Clarice

Today, Trayvon's mother says she thinks it was an accident--where the hell was she when the lynch mob was marching and Sharpton and Jackson and the NBPP were doing their thang?

Captain Hate

Speaking of brain slugs:

An accident? Then it aint murder. Most that could be is manslaughter. Forgetting about provisions in the law for stand your ground etc. No malice in an accident.

centralcal

Agree, Clarice. And what about her own attorneys?

Chubby

well done, TM.

guess the days are long gone when all the legacy media did was publish stories about bloggers lacking requisite credentials

narciso

He's this close from going Captain Terrill and
disrupting himself, and to think they gave him
a third term and not Guiliani

Cecil Turner

An accident? Then it aint murder.

Best of all, it isn't self-defense, and civil immunity does not apply. [Oh, you cynic!]

Captain Hate

Treacher having some fun with Hilary Rosen

Even the DNC knows she stepped in it badly. OWN IT CLOWNS!!!

Clarice

The Democrat war on (traditional) women

narciso

Vizzini, would have counseled them, 'don't go against Sicilians when revenge is on the line'
and don't ever challenge motherhood, you twit.
although Captain could come up with a stronger
expression,

MarkO

I wish I could see a judge dismissing these charges, assuming there is a failure of evidence, but my reading of the forces at work in the wider Orlando progressive suburbs suggests it will not happen.

Captain Hate

narc, have you been posting @ AoS as Cthulu in the past few days?

fdcol63

Did anyone else who listened to Zimmerman's call ever hear the dispatcher tell him not to get out of the car?

All I heard was the dispatcher say "We don't need you to do that" when GZ said he was following TM.

Extraneus

Just more MSM dishonesty, fd, as I know you know. We learned a week ago that the dispatcher cannot give orders, never mind the fact that she didn't.

fdcol63

Ext, I know that when I was a police dispatcher and 911 operator, my "instructions" were never treated as legally binding orders.

Tom Maguire
In the explanded story Michael Cooper was added to the byline.

True.

Then, the case will be argued in front of 12 unemployed people too stupid to find a plausible excuse to avoid a drawn-out trial.

Also too out of touch to have noticed the passing coverage on television.

Did anyone else who listened to Zimmerman's call ever hear the dispatcher tell him not to get out of the car?

In context I knew what she meant and it seemed like a clear-enough summary.

jimmyk

She was right then, she is right now, and I don't know where the editors of the Paper of Record are getting their "news".

bubu should apply for a job with the Times, he seems to have the requisite inability to absorb information that is in discord with his fetid imagination. Ditto for duda and sylvia.

narciso

'It's a Floor wax, and a dessert topping' Smith always had that problem with cross referencing contradictory data at the Ministry of Truth.

Christopher Fotos

The photos I'm seeing with the linked Alvarez/Cooper story still use the outdated young-teen image of Martin.

NK

What's the NY Times?

Walter Sobchak

"[NY]Times editors don't read their own paper or follow their own links"

Why should they? They know that it is junk.

daddy

"[NY]Times editors don't read their own paper or follow their own links"

They're not in the News Business. They're in the propaganda and cultural wars business.

Cecil,

Sadly, I share your cynicism in your 9:38.

Vinny B.

What I don't get is why no one is talking about hoe the NRA and the Republican Party are bankrolling Zimmerman's defense. What makes him do special? Oh yeah, he is a white man culling the streets of the trouble-making black kid, so they want to make sure he gets away with it. It is sad that black youths in our society are targeted by whites and scapegoated. You know who I blame the most for the attitudes of hate like that shown by Zimmerman? George W. Bush. he told Americans for years that it was OK to hate those darky Ay-rabs, so why wouldn't Zimmerman think it was OK to kill a young minority who he considered a terrorist simply because he was black. Just listen how he called Martin a "coon" and couldn't wait to point out that he was black and therefore a criminal that deserved to die. I hope he gets the death penalty for what he did.

Russ

" why are we taking their reporting seriously if they don't?"

Wait. What? We are? Crap, I must have missed a memo or something...

Daniel in Brookline

Vinny:

Just about pitch perfect. Racism? Check. Blame it on Bush? Check. Completely misrepresenting the facts (e.g. "coon", which he didn't say and would have been totally incongruous) - check. Making up irrelevant facts that don't help your argument (when did GWB *ever* say "darky Ay-rabs", let alone encourage hatred of them) - check.

You forgot to call someone a Nazi, though. Add that and it'll be perfect. Half credit if you say "homophobe" instead. Extra credit if you call someone a gay Nazi homophobe.

Happy trails,
DiB
