Social: Ultra-Right Sean Hannity of Fox News Gets Zimmerman Interivew

Source:  mediabistro.

I don't know why George Zimmerman's defense attorneys are allowing this but Sean Hannity of Fox News will get an hour to grill Zimmerman.  By grill, I mean lob softballs, probably with questions that have already been agreed to.

And the thing is I'm not sure if this is a great idea.  By appearing on Fox News, you end up prejudicing the public against the defendant and getting ripped by the blogs and other national media.

On second thought, this might be a stroke of genius.  Already, the social elements of the Internet already assumed that by associating with Hannity and Fox News, Zimmerman is attempt to appeal to the public for support - the "right" kind.  It could be an attempt to poison the public view and, thereby, influencing a potential jury pool.

It's a calculated risk.  Otherwise, there really is no reason for Zimmerman to appear on any media, television or otherwise.  All-in-all, it's not something that is advisable under any circumstances.  After all, it didn't appear Zimmerman was a racist.

A dumb ass to be sure but probably not a racist.
