State v. George Zimmerman (Pre-Trial) > Media Coverage and Bias

Jack Cahill Working on Book About the Case

(1/14) > >>

RickyJim:
The title is set to be: “If I Had A Son: Race, Guns, and the Railroading of George Zimmerman.”

From his website and previous books, I think his point of view is very similar to that of the CTH.

Coincidentally, I just read a recent post by Cashill.

Then he cheerfully disregards any facts inconvenient for Zimmerman, such as W-6 recanting his 'MMA' statement. 

Cashill is a hack, not worth attention in my opinion.

RickyJim:
I agree about Cahill.  An objective author would also discuss how Zimmerman's statements to investigators and TV hosts complicate his defense.

From W-6's follow-up interview:
"in my first statement that I made, I did say that he was hitting him from on top, um, because that's what it looked like. I mean he could have still been hitting him, or he could have been trying to hold him down, you know."

I think it's a bit stretch to throw the loaded word "recanted" at his testimony.  John changed from saying TM was punching GZ to saying it looked like TM was hitting GZ.  To me, that's a clarification/reduction in confidence, not a denial.

It's not a loaded word. It's an accurate description.
