Following George Zimmerman’s first public video statement
regarding the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, Zimmerman’s attorney spoke with MRCTV via Skype regarding the media’s reaction to the video.
Attorney Howard Iken of the law firm Ayo and Iken
in Florida charged that some media outlets reporting on Zimmerman’s statement “twisted his words” – some using “outright lies”:
“No money changed hands as a result of this video. It was simply to put out a message that Mr. Zimmerman wanted to give.”
“And, even here, there were misconstrued statements, there were some outright lies, there were some media sources, not major ones, but there were some media sources that twisted his words and made it not only extremely negative but very sensationalist.”
