Follow the associations, look into their background, understand the impetus of why they attached themselves to the narrative advancement, bring forth the sunlight, and understand the depth of the opposition against George Zimmerman. This is NOT, in the larger sense, about George Zimmerman. He was the tool – to advance a cause.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Story Outlined ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As you may remember, on March 29th we were reviewing another “exclusive” ABC release of George Zimmerman at Sanford Police Dept. when we noticed something odd, the video was/is actually a recording of a monitor. Initially we thought that meant it was not an official release. We were wrong. ABC was given a digital Hi-def copy from the outset.
We now know that ABC was the first to posess a digital copy of the actual CCTV recording. But they chose instead to use a lesser quality, and far lower definition, video. (This is what they aired)
On March 28th ABC’s Candace Smith (seen left) was the first to gain posession of the video.
On 3/28 she asked SPD for the video, the police department was initially not going to release it since the area covered by the camera view was considered a secured area and not subject to release without a judge’s order.
However, an attorney working for the city, Lonnie Groot, who was tasked with reviewing all the requests for information, agreed to release it since it was actually on the city’s servers.
Ms. Smith was provided a direct hi-def copy DVD; But for some reason she was unable to get it to load through their equipment (or so the story is told). Sources indicate she was quite agitated, and so, trying to meet a deadline, she went angrily to City Hall. Once there she raised quite a stink about SPD, not giving her and ABC suitable material, nor actually fulfilling the request.
The city played her copy on their equipment and showed her it worked.
Apparently, she was pushing to make a deadline to go on air and asked if she could just video the material from the city’s monitor. The request was granted. The video was filmed with a small minicam similar to the one held in this picture (above).
So yes, even though ABC had actual physical custody of a direct copy in High Def, the first airing to hit the public airwaves on March 28th was video of a video. Again, Ms. Candace Smith was the first to gain access to this video. Subsequently, more media copies were made for all the requests that followed.
If you recall, all the commentary about that video were framed to a narrative ”showing no injuries, no blood etc,” this mantra was repeated several times throughout the initial showing and then picked up by other media outlets using the EXACT same footage.
Here is where the agenda shows, and it appears that ABC may have intentionallly played this video using a ridiculous low resolution on purpose so that no identifying injuries could be noticed. After all, this was the main point of their reporting on the “exclusive”.
If they, as journalists, had actually used the HD digital copy provided by SPD when you play it frame by frame and zoom in on GZ’s head, the injuries clearly come into view several times. While the bleeding had subsided, the gashes are visible.
They had this capacity from Day One when they were provided the footage. They could have gone back to the affiliate studio of ABC and played the HD video for their story assembling the “accurate” narrative. They did not. Why?
(Orlando Sentinel) ABC News has re-digitized video of George Zimmerman taken shortly after Trayvon Martin’s shooting.
The video was unveiled as an exclusive this morning on “Good Morning America.” ABC was the first news organization to show the original tape.
Reporter Matt Gutman said the clearer video shows “what appear to be a pair of gashes or welts on George Zimmerman’s head.”
Neighborhood Watch volunteer Zimmerman has said he shot 17-year-old Trayvon in self-defense. The video shows Zimmerman arriving at the Sanford Police Department within an hour after the shooting.
Gutman said the video had been “clarified” by Forensic Protection Inc. Former FBI Special Agent Brad Garrett told ABC that the clearer video shows “marks on the back of Mr. Zimmerman’s head.” (link)
Why did they (Candace Smith, Matt Gutman) witness, with their eyes, a High-Def version provided by police. Yet they reported on, and presented, a poor quality low resolution version?
Even if you accept Ms. Smith’s claim of inability to load on her equipment (see picture below), she still witnessed the digital copy in person.
And Why did ABC wait from 3/28 until 4/2 to correct their initial reporting when they held posession of the correct version the entire time?
“clarified” by Forensics Protection Inc.
Really - Matt and Candace, really?
Again, the TRUTH is within the associations that form the agenda. Look. The TRUTH screams to be heard.
Here is the standard portable propaganda equipment as photographed by Ms. Smith herself and shared on her Twitter Feed:
