A Florida judge has thrown out George Zimmerman's libel suit against NBC Universal.
Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson ruled that Zimmerman, a former Sanford, Fla., Neighborhood Watch volunteer, is not entitled to money from NBC following his defamation lawsuit against the media organization.
Nelson said that Zimmerman failed to show the network acted with malice, according to The Associated Press.
She said the malice standard was appropriate because Zimmerman became a public figure after he shot and killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black 17-year-old, inside a gated community in Sanford, Fla., in 2012
Zimmerman "voluntarily injected his views into the public controversy surrounding race relations and public safety in Sanford and pursued a course of conduct that ultimately led to the death of Martin and the specific controversy surrounding it," said Nelson, who presided over Zimmerman's criminal trial last summer.
Zimmerman had filed the suit two years ago, accusing the media giant of falsely depicting him as a racist in a series of broadcasts NBC ran shortly after Zimmerman shot and killed Martin. In the lawsuit, Zimmerman accused NBC of defaming him by airing edited clips of a 911 call he made on the night of the shooting -- claiming NBC practices "yellow journalism."
His suit is finished unless the ruling is reversed by an appeals court, according to the newspaper.

so despite what FOX News says; if you talk like a racist, you are a racist.
are you capable of reading with any comprehension whatsoever.....obviously not....

the judge did not say that NBC's reporting was accurate, just that they acted without malice (in her opinion).....

five reasons why Hillary won’t run
(1) she’s just not very good at politics;
(2) there’s no “fire in the tummy”;
(3) who wants to clean up after Barack Obama, any way;
(4) the country wants real change; and
(5) another round of “Clinton, Bush, Clinton” with children of both families waiting in the wings, is thrilling nobody.
Forget about it, it's a done deal, she's running. This is all just wishful thinking on your part.

The Judge did not say NBC's reporting was inaccurate, which meant she believed it was accurate.

If not, she would have been required to state that it was inaccurate, you doofus.

The funding went to the Palestinian Authority. You BS does not change that.
If Hamas ordered those kidnappings (doubtful) then Hamas would be held accountable. But if it was some offshoot group, then Hamas itself is not responsible.
A key will be if Hamas helps locate those responsible.
Israel will locate those responsible, as well as those who give them cover....and will deliver swift and final justice.....

Dave, I have tried
1. Vox Explaining it to you. Using silly number lists highlighting each point to avoid any claims of confusion.
2. Unlike Vox Explain I used real data with links to show that the poverty rate has gone up since 2009 and still remains at 15%
3. Your claim that a 15% poverty rate is good is totally absurd
If after all this you choose to deny--your problem/not mine.
First, you lie as I never said that a 15% poverty rate was good.

Second, I never said the poverty rate has not gone up and, in fact, I said it did when I connected poverty rate to job loses.

Third, you are still running from your statement where you compared the poverty rate from June of 2008 with today's poverty rate to say there was no recovery.

The ACA would have demanded that Hobby Lobby followed the guidelines as set forth in the ACA.

The ACA is a law.

Hobby Lobby was looking for away to violate that law.

There are unalienable rights written into the US Constitution meaning no one can violate including a democratic Congress and a Dem/Lib/Marxist president.
If it were absolute the decision would have been 9-0 instead of 5-4

This isn't complicated or difficult to understand so why do you refuse to accept what is so obvious even to a lay person in the street? Lois Lerner tried to get a sitting Senator from the opposition political party to be audited on his taxes BEFORE he filed his taxes for that year. furthermore, Senator Grassley is sqeaky clean nerd who is meticulous in his financial affairs and is notorious for being a goody good shoes geek. Senator Grassley did not attend nor did his wife attend the function he received the invitation from anyway, so the whole b.s. is nothing but harassment from a out of control IRS.

Grassley sits on a committee that oversees ethics and accountability in government....ooops is that why Lerner tried to targeted him?

Do you even remember what Lois Lerner is guilty of concerning targeting opposition party conservatives? She's guilty she apologized for inappropriate targeting in the hearings and Federal Court found the IRS guilty of damages in the amount of $50,000 to another person who was unfairly and unjustly targeted.

Wake up and smell the reek of corruption it's everywhere in Washington D.C.

The idea liberals have of anyone "banning" birth control is Birth control is and always has been a personal choice to prevent pregnancy paid for out of one's own pocket. It's being forced on everyone now as part of a "collective" mentality and has communism written all over it.
Guess it never dawned on all these liberal women 20 years ago their "right" to free birth control was being denied them under the Constitution.
It's because it wasn't, never has been and isn't today.
It's a tactic of coercion to test if Americans can easily be coerced...tomorrow it will be some other freedom of choice taken away in the guise of collectivism in the place of individualism using bullying tactics by progressive liberalism.
Hopefully, it's not working anymore.

So if Hobby Lobby is such a good Christian Company, why do they import most of their crap from China??

China has more abortions than any nation on earth.

----------

"" Chinese data show that 13 million abortions are performed each year, for an average rate of 35,000 abortions per day.

One field researcher has concluded that he is fairly certain that most of the 13 million annual abortions are forced.

According to Steven Mosher, most of the millions of abortions carried out in China have the character of a rape; that is, they were performed on women who were ordered, or even physically forced, to submit to the knife.

Since 1971, doctors have performed 336 million abortions, have performed 196 million sterilizations, and have inserted 403 million intrauterine devices.(For comparison, in the US, where the population is about one-quarter the size of China’s, an estimated 50 million abortions have been performed since 1973.)

----------

They did this for economic reasons. If they were observant Christians, they would not do business with China, the abortion capital of the World.
