    The comments contain an assertion from the author of the review. 15 days for discovery?

    Re: Judge throws out George Zimmerman's libel suit against NBC

    I always felt that the unedited tape was more incriminating than the Today show edited tape was.
    It seemed to me more like NBC was trying to protect Zimmerman from what he actually said.
    maybe the judge heard it the same way.

Just like the rest of the media that sided with Trayvon tried to use all the 911 calls that Z had made since he lived in that area as only calling on black people, despite the fact that he had also called on other races also. The media, includeing NBC or whatever it is tried time and again to portray Zimmerman as racist. So much so that it riled the Black Panthers up enough to offer a reward for Zimmermans capture, dead or alive.

    I well and truely believe that the Media should be utterly ashamed of itself for how they handled this whole thing.
    Ashamed sure. I'd agree with that. However, making that into "libel" or "putting his life in danger?" C'mon....they're not responsible for the actions of the Black Panthers.


    Has anyone else noticed how often this guy fears that his life is in danger?

    You're right, they're not responsible for the Black Panthers actions. But they are responsible for the words and or actions that they use that may spur people into action.

    I wonder what's in it for the judge to make this bull**** decision.

    Yes, they are. Everyone is responsible for their own words and actions. Doesn't matter if its Zimmerman, Obama, Bush, or King Tut. EVERYONE is responsible for their own words and actions. There's a reason that the Pen is Mightier than the Sword. Words can bring about peace or war far quicker than a single gun shot.

    I point to a jury's decision.
