“He does look like a different guy,” Jarrett remarked. “It looks like he’s put on a hundred pounds. Look, he has been in hiding and he fears for his life, and there have been all kinds of death threats. And, you know, he can’t go anywhere, can’t get out and get exercise.”
“Probably suffering from stress and anxiety,” Guilfoyle added.
“You eat when you’re under stress and pressure and stuff like that,” Jarrett agreed. “So, you know, he’s already been punished to some extent. We’ll wait and see whether a Jury punishes him further.”
What’s going on here is that these TV hairdos, who live their whole lives thinking what they do is on par with walking point in Fallujah because they have to think that to avoid shooting themselves, imagine that being called an asshole on TV is the worst thing that can happen to anyone ever. Therefore, George Zimmerman has been punished to the fullest extent of the only laws they believe themselves to be subject to.
Whatever we may say about the court of public opinion, though, it’s STILL NOT A REAL COURT. And people do still really suffer, and really die, and if Zimmerman is found guilty he will really have to go to real jail. Whether reality exists on TV anymroe is still, thank God, beside the point. Trayvon Martin is really dead, and a real jury will have to figure that out. That’s not some kind of additional burden on a man who’s already been punished. It’s the way the world turns.
