No, there's a better, more immediate and lasting way.

Unfortunately it requires most people to become savvy, demanding, and discriminating news media consumers and expand their attention span beyond the 1-page or 2.5 minute format.

Don't click the sensational link. Turn off the TV if they sensationalize the story. Don't buy the paper if they slant their coverage. Consume based on quality content instead of pretty pictures and sound bites. Do business with the advertisers that sponsor quality news sources, vocally avoid doing business with sponsors of crappy news sources.

No he wont. After he is found not guilty, the libs will huff and puff, and within a few months, people will forget all about him. He is also no Mario Lopez. He looks very generic. Shave the beard, grow the hair out a bit, and no one is the wiser. Change your name to George Mizzerman, and all is well.

Do you now understand why I roll my eyes when people talk about how dangerous Fox News is? No one is watching! The left has all the major broadcast news networks, all the remaining cable news networks, academia and hollywood.

Fair fight, or to liberals just hate not having a monopoly on biased information?

Zimmerman doesn't need to worry about liberals.

Zangara: sought to "make even with capitalists"
Oswald: Communist, openly
Sirhan: Angry over support for Israel
Bremer: obsessed with bigotry, down with black panthers
Fromme: Concerned with redwoods
Moore: Thought "government had declared war on the left"

I don't see it happening, I think everything is too far gone. Nothing short of hitting the reset button can even start to fix things.

Opinions are protected, but it is not an opinion when you are essentially doctoring evidence to suggest that you are a murderer.

And then broadcasting it on national tv to tens of millions in the country
endangering your life.

Precisely, which is why I believe he will prevail if the case goes to trial. He is most definitely not a celebrity/public figure. Even if he was, however, I still think their conduct is egregious enough to amount to hardcore defamation.
