Very Few in Country are Following George Zimmerman Trial Based on Pew Poll-TV Ratings: Updated

Opposite of what MSM would have you believe, virtually no one is tuning into cable news these days to follow the George Zimmerman Trial.

Look at the ratings numbers, they're pitiful;

Being a news hound like me and wanting to see more coverage of the Edward Snowden story, knowing I wouldn't get much of that, I made sure I was watching something else the past three weeks, usually the USA channel. And thankfully the Zimmerman threads on Daily Paul have been few and far between.

Modest Public Interest in Close of Zimmerman Trial


What little I did see of the George Zimmerman Trial mainly in news highlights while surfing, I did get the clear cut facts of the case. I also believe this trial will be used in Harvard case law study and is a perfect example of modern video of justifiable self defense law for public re-education purposes on the matter.

My summation for what it's worth;

Trayvon Martin initiated violence after tracking away from his home toward Zimmerman's location, by then throwing the first punch and continuing the attack on George Zimmerman who was faithfully doing his volunteer community watchman job. George used lawful justifiable force to defend himself.

The moral of the story; Don't initiate a fight one on one with someone because they can pull out a gun and kill you with it. Especially with shorter smaller people because they too might have an equalizer in the battle and win. Better to think twice about what you're going to do.

Most hopeful headline I've read all day.


Defeat the panda-industrial complex

I am dusk icon. anagram me.

Stories like this are meant to hypnotize the sheeple

Who really gives a rat's ass. Let the jury of their peers do the job they are supposed to do.

good point. it is up to us to educate the people...

on their rights and responsibilities.

Everyone is waiting for the post verdict riots

Maybe they start tomorrow?


What the difference between this time and LA?

Florida has concealed carry, and far less gun lawas, as well as SYG law.

There will be a lot of dead people if there are any riots.

But looking at the TV ratings, no one will be stupid enough to do that

Educate the masses, and win in the end.

Americans have a fundamental

Americans have a fundamental right to defend themselves with a firearm. Floridians know this. This trial is basically about gun grabbing and race baiting.

Yea...most people

all more concerned with...

-IRS targeting political groups and why no one has been held accountable.

-The gun running op in Benghazi that got American's killed and violated a boat load of U.S. and International laws.

-Who blew up Michael Hastings Mercedes and why?

-Where Edward Snowden is and where he might end up?

-What criminal act the Guardian and Greenwald will report on next.


Indeed--we are more concerned with all that !

Which is why this case is so important.

The State, like in all your examples, has taken control. Right down to the bottom of our existence, as in The State of Florida vs Zimmerman.
