So why was -- so -- her on Twitter.
Well on Wednesday I am Don Cheadle or collect -- and Don Cheadle slammed NBC for playing the race card this after the network apologized area and I hit an.
For arrogant edited version of George Zimmermann is 911 call he's of course a Florida man who shot and killed unarmed black team claiming he was being attacked.
The Today -- chopped up the tape to make it sound like Zimmerman said -- on Morton looks suspicious because he's black.
But the full tape shows that -- -- and it was just responding to a direct question about -- appearance.
I pray this kind of BS doesn't affect the investigation or sway the facts in any way.
And dangerous subject matter to be -- with -- responsible incendiary and completely counter to the furtherance of justice for either side.
Children spent several minutes -- conservative columnist Michelle Malkin over Twitter before signing off with oh and right these I don't hate you but I -- new recruit.
Clearly we must discuss in like.
Lightning round -- America for -- right now.
No problem with the story that bothers me is that the media has -- in many cases enormously irresponsible off covering it.
From the police have a job to do the grand jury that will be -- no matter does it job to do do and you know readings.
And ratings and the emotion that is involved in all this gets everybody fired up.
And I would be really Smart for all of us just chill out and see what comes of it.
And I think for those who who -- are bought and sold on Zimmerman whose conviction which may come at some point or may not.
They're not going to be satisfied at this point when she that you definitely -- like from prison so at what point resident can and I.
I think we all just -- -- -- more cautious side on this I think it's better for America frankly.
Lauren if it's -- and -- -- Cheadle and Michelle Malkin were able to have a civil conversation is that that's not usually what you see him where.
As you know.
-- -- -- -- -- -- But yes now I -- I mean almost -- -- confused why this is a news story because there's so many people speaking out about this topic it.
He reasoned discussion level all across America so -- like that they could discuss that in a public -- everyone you know he kind of talk about and that way -- and -- -- mentioning there was so much.
Discussion about this that would not civil -- and you know was was violent in some cases and you know.
I think it's good on any level to -- just not -- -- Don Cheadle Ellen we're covering it because he had an opinion on there honey you have an opinion on.
But they're not -- on sale now -- and then on Tuesday.
Other analysts Twitter handle is I am darn you don't know what amounts to Iran's threats and he is to pretend -- -- hotel for dogs so that he had it not true -- yeah I know that how does that give not a dog sometimes that Italian neighbors don't need we need more liberals and more.
Conservatives calling BS on their own side when BS exist and we yes I I think it's great -- Don Cheadle as a celebrity is putting his you know his celebrity status on the line in a way.
And and making a point.
On an emotional subject I think.
The NBC was wrong.
And I -- dot Diageo for that editing and I want to call there's no director's cut.
Necessary right when you're dealing with hardcore news and somebody made an -- and he's pointed out and -- -- -- the ramifications for that.
Talking about possible trials and justice.
However with all due respect to Don Cheadle I would appreciate -- if they added about forty minutes out of ocean's thirteen time.
We said lightning round yeah.
But bill now that -- call BS on NBC's editing isn't -- -- for -- to -- the far more serious issue of why he had a cockney accent and not tough enough for sure.
For sure I I here's -- here's my theory on that.
They were -- need for that role.
The doctor -- comes in and they go can -- -- anything special to that ruling goes.
Commuting the -- that and -- like they look over the really.
And it made him so much cooler and a little British acts.
He wasn't just a robbery was -- PGA -- They got a drop of some cockney rhyming slabs -- Lou let me pass.
