Just by getting involved in it. He brings a laser like focus to a local case and brings it into national focus. Thereby creating a national reaction instead of a local one when the verdict comes down.
And once again ABC news is guilty of editing to further their agenda.
From Slate.com : "ABC News hasn’t posted a full unedited video or transcript of the interview. The video that has been broadcast—on World News Tonight, Nightline, and Good Morning America—has been cut and spliced in different ways, often so artfully that the transitions appear continuous. So beware what you’re seeing. But the video that’s available already shows, on closer inspection, that Maddy has been manipulated and misrepresented."

Yep. You would think by now the media might back down but I guess not. Sad many so called reporters have no problem being shills and don't know or care they should be keeping the government in check. Too busy not only being a dnc mouthpiece but keep getting caught doing this. And the people on the left here? They say nothing.

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears--
Since most of us here really are friends, I'm letting you know that my husband lost his job today. We AND his employer ctually knew it was coming, since he was diagnosed with Type II diabetes several years ago and like most Type IIs it was only a matter of time before he'd have to go on insulin.
As of today, he's starting on insulin. Since no trucking company can insure an INSULIN-DEPENDENT truck driver, he is now unemployed. I am not bitter toward his employer and I don't think he is, either, because as I said, we knew it was coming.
We do have a couple of options. His employer has already completed the appropriate paperwork to allow him to apply for Social Security and/or Workman's Compensation, and there is still a possibility he'll be able to find a job locally. Nevertheless, obviously the next few weeks are going to be difficult, so please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
Thanks.
Roberta, I don't know if your hubby is a heavy man (I know that many diabetics are thin as a rail) but bariatric surgery cures type 2 diabetics almost instantly. Just an FYI and no need to reply due to this being a personal, private, and sensitive nature.

I will pray that the best choices for you and your hubby are made during this time. I am so sorry to hear of this change coming to you both.

I'm sorry, but if you don't understand why I made that post to bobin, you didn't read HIS post.

Then again ... maybe you did. You've got different standards for people you agree with and people you don't, as you showed the other day when you were all over me for responding to a cheap stereotype trotted out by somebody else.

I do not think the "if I had a son" remarks made by the President can be construed as interfering in a local criminal matter. The case had already become a national story by the time the President made them, and he spoke of nothing more than wanting to ensure there was a thorough investigation.

Did the President's comments add to the national prominence of the story? Probably - but so what?

The rest of the rubbish bobin included in his pitch is not worth commenting on.

Nobody's shown anything that comes REMOTELY close to proving that Obama bears anything like responsibility for the azzhat who yelled Trayvon's name during an assault.

That's just wishful thinking, Chris.

20 grand what? 20 grand pianos? 20 grand looking gentlemen? 20 grand kids? There is a far better chance of me having any of those things lying around than $20,000 in cash; unfortunately for us both!

Statins, handed out like candy, have also been tied to diabetes. That crap has been the biggest con ever pulled off by big pharma, and they've pulled off many.

Listen, LIT, between $10 and a Schnauzer, I'd rather have the Schnauzer :)

Willie's "obama blinders" TM work very well... and he's the proof. We all described, in detail, how barry was directly responsible for negatively amplifying the problem, and he still pretends not to understand.

Your posts frequently remind me why I use the DVR to watch shows on certain networks, because they are prone to repeating the same lame commercials 4 or more times over the course of an hour. Some of those commercials were mildly amusing the first time you see 'em, but it goes downhill fast.

Here's a hint - my reference to the script had nothing to do with the opinions expressed about Obama et al.

Willie, I am not positive where you are going with this but I know what bugs me. It is a universal problem. Very few people have the time or take the time to dig deeper into the news of the day or the history of the past. We are guilty of arguing from soundbites and surface articles. America and the world have gotten lazy when it comes to taking in information and being able to absorb it for nuances. We no longer ask ourselves "what did this author leave out and why" or "What is the purpose of this story coming out now". It is a dying art and even when more of us did it, it was not common. Group think and group speak have become the norm. All the news talking heads regurgitate each other's talking points. You hear the same catch words and phrases from the President, his advisers, and the talking heads on a daily basis. Turn to Fox news and conservative radio and you get the same thing from the Right. The polarization of today seems to mean that we must be in lockstep either on the Left or the Right. No room for individual variations or fine tuning of beliefs. So, in taking a guess at your script remark, this is the stab I have made. I hope I have not slashed too blindly.

You and obama have so much in common. You both ignore facts that are evident to almost everyone else. You both refuse to accept the obvious, and continue to deny what is so easily apparent to everyone else seeing those same facts.

the obama administration has done little to improve race relations in the USA, but they've done a lot to worsen them.

The administration's position in opposition to a Hispanic citizen, both before and after the trial, and who was found "not guilty" based on factual evidence, was just one more example of why race relations are deteriorating, and racial tensions are increasing... in some cases leading to violence.

A walk down "Memory Lane"...

You sir, are guilty of the crime of "willful ignorance".
