If you want to see what a buried lede looks like, look no further than the Washington Post’s story about juror B29 in the George Zimmerman case. The headline of the July 25 piece blares what the left-wing commentators have been screaming for days: "Zimmerman got away with murder.” It’s juicy. It’s eye-catching, but it paints a two-dimensional portrait of how the juror, who calls herself Maddy, feels about the case.
In fact, Maddy, a mother of eight of Puerto Rican heritage -- bursting once and for all the "all-white jury" meme in the liberal media -- said in a televised interview that she thought the trial was a “publicity stunt,” and probably shouldn’t have been convened in the first place. Additionally, she noted “You can’t put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty.” Translation: there was reasonable doubt (or some would say innocence) – and if that’s the case, you cannot send someone to prison.
