Fox News Sean Hannity Gets George Zimmerman’s Exclusive Interview … Discusses Night He Shot Trayvone Martin, “I Looked up and He Punched Me and Broke my Nose.” … He Prays for Trayvon’s Family Daily (VIDEO)
Tonight Fox News Sean Hannity scored the exclusive interview with George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch man in Sanford, FL who shot and killed Trayvon Martin. Did you think that Al Sharpton and MSNBC would get the interview? The case has become a polarizing news story of racism, media bias and anti-gun law agenda. Sadly, once the bias liberal media attached themselves to the case, the facts became irrelevant.
However, as the prosecution has released information in the case under Florida Sunshine laws, some of which should never have been released and was only done so to sway public opinion and inflame prejudice against Zimmerman. Tonight George Zimmerman flanked by his attorney Mark O’ Mara went on their own PR offensive. Amazingly Zimmerman went through the events of the evening where he followed Trayvon Martin, got into a scuffle with Martin while getting his nose broken and eventually shooting Martin dead. Some will call it a crazy legal move for a man facing second degree murder charges, others will say that the case is being tried in the court of public opinion, why not present your side to the public. During the interview George Zimmerman said, “I am sorry that they buried their child. I can’t imagine what it must feel like. I pray for them daily.”
Martin soon turned to confront Zimmerman and “asked me what my problem was” before the exchange escalated into violence, Zimmerman told Hannity in his first TV interview, conducted in an undisclosed location in Florida. The 28-year-old, with his attorney sitting by his side, said he reached into his pocket to find his phone to call 911 for a second time, and “I looked up and he punched me and broke my nose.” At one point Zimmerman said he heard Martin “telling me he’s going to kill me.”
The case drew intense national attention as speculation grew about the motives for the shooting, especially given that Martin was black. Zimmerman has white and Hispanic heritage. He dismissed suggestions by some that he acted out of racism. “I don’t think it’s fair that they rushed to judgment to assume that,” he told Fox News.
“I do want to tell everyone, my wife, my family, my parents, my grandmother, the Martins, the city of Sanford and America that I’m sorry that this happened,” he said. “I hate to think that because of this incident, because my actions, it’s polarized and divided American. And I’m truly sorry.”

Has the LEFT no Shame … Bob does it again …
Lefty Bob Beckel lost his mind last night on the ‘Hannity’ show as he dropped the “F” bomb live on TV. Making matters worse, he refused to apologize. After coming back from a commercial, Beckel screamed at Jennifer Stefano of AFP Pennsylvania, “You don’t know what the f*ck you’re talking about!”
From Mediaite …
Bob Beckel didn’t realize when the commercial break ended during tonight’s final segment of Hannity, caught in a heated off-camera argument with fellow panelist Jennifer Stefano. Off-air debates, we thus learned, are granted a much more colorful range of vocabulary than on-air debates, and as the cameras started rolling, the first words on national television were, “You don’t know what the f*ck you’re talking about.”
UPDATE I: The Other McCain has an interesting follow up and take on the apologies not for what Beckel said, but for Beckel. It would seem that the “establishment” boys club are circling of the wagons. I would agree, interesting how the so-called seasoned pro Democrat consultant could not take the prodding during the commercial break from a little girl. Really Bob? My apologies to my favorite “Rabid Shrew” … Jennifer Stefano for the little girl comment, done for effect to show what an oaf Beckel truly is. Follow Jennifer on Twitter, HERE.
Hmmmm. Is there some kind of “boys club” thing going on here? Grant that going after an antagonist during the commercial break is probably considered “unprofessional” among TV commentators. But the protective circle-the-wagons defense of Beckel would seem to be rather — what’s that fancy word the feminists use? — gendered.
We’ll let the feminists decide whether the token Democrat on Fox News is guilty of being a MISOGYNISTIC PATRIARCHAL OPPRESSOR, and just give props to our favorite “rabid shrew.”
BTW, sorry but the excuses for Beckel don’t cut it. This is not the first time by any stretch that he has had a potty mouth on Fox. Beckel refused to say he was sorry last night. Take a good look at the VIDEO below of other Beckel apology moments for ignorant comments. Its all fun and games until you use the “F” word.
Just curious … who is tired of Beckel’s BS … this act is old and lame. Watch Bob swear, see Bob apologize, watch Bob swear again. LAME!
