Okay all right good bye let's move on rushed there's a big dominating cable news -- -- -- Martin George Zimmerman trial it's all over the place.
Rush talked to us a little bit about is this that George Zimmerman on trial or is it race in America on trial is -- specifically.
Talk to us about the media's role in all of this.
I think the media and you all excluded of course I think the media is invested in -- guilty verdict.
And they are invested -- -- guilty verdict it's racial.
And New York Times called -- guy -- white Hispanic.
And CNN has picked up on Michael Zimmerman a white -- what is a white Hispanic I mean that's a desire.
To categorize this is entirely racial when it probably had nothing to do with the race the actual event and when it happened.
But everybody wants to make it that because there are there are just that I think races I've gotten to know liberals over the course of my career here.
