Equal application?

In response to George Zimmerman being found not guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, there have been some raucous protests which have taken place over the past few days. While there hasn't been nearly the violence and looting that some predicted would dwarf the L.A. riots in response to LAPD officers being acquitted of beating Rodney King, there nevertheless have been reports of innocent civilians being injured.

Here's something to ponder. Since NBC went out of its way to portray Zimmerman as a racist, thus stoking the fire of unarmed African American teen Martin being gunned down by an alleged racist, does NBC bare any responsibility for any of the injuries suffered in mass protests of this "racial crime?" Lest we forget, in the eyes of many leftists, a group of citizens who dared object to their children being saddled with $50,000+ debt and having their healthcare infringed upon somehow inflamed a madman to go on a shooting spree that critically wounded an Arizona congresswoman.

So, leftists. Are you willing to assign the same standards of rhetorical discipline to a media outlet that has been the top mouthpiece for the current President you worked so hard to elect twice? Yeah, didn't think so.
