Coulter: Media Using Zimmerman Coverage to Show 'Racist America Trying to Rape, Murder Black People'
Outspoken author and political pundit Ann Coulter sat down with Sean Hannity last night to blast what she called biased media coverage of the George Zimmerman trial, alleging that it's 'an unbelievable illustration' of racial demagoguery in the U.S.
"This case would never - never - have been brought if the races were reversed, and they go around saying it's the reverse of that," Coulter claimed.
The author compared the Zimmerman case to the Duke Lacrosse rape case, contending that liberal media is using trial coverage to claim "racist America is out trying to rape and murder black people.”
Furthermore, Coulter added, "it's as if even the lawyers on the other networks [think] that what has to be shown in this trial is that George Zimmerman has to prove beyond reasonable doubt that he did not engage in racial profiling. [...] It's not illegal for a private citizen to racially profile; it's not illegal to follow someone [...] and by the way, the burden of the proof is 100 percent on the prosecution."
