George Zimmerman lightly injured in murder attempt
George Zimmerman was nearly killed while driving his car in Florida. An attacker fired through the passenger side window of his car. The bullet narrowly missed Zimmerman’s head. He was sprayed in the face with glass and taken away in an ambulance.
Major media outlets are already downplaying the attack and calling it “road rage.” This euphemism is often used to downplay crimes that do not fit the media’s desired narrative. Some media outlets appear to be blaming George Zimmerman for the attack, without having any of the details.
Other media outlets combining news of the attack with anti-Zimmerman hit pieces. Some recycling the same old debunked falsehoods. Many black power activists are condemning the shooter on twitter for not fatally killing Zimmerman.
