In Case You Missed It: George Zimmerman’s “Friend” Joe Oliver exposed as a fraud (videos)

We now know that the man who quit his job in order defend George Zimmerman to the national news media barely knows him.

Joe Oliver, a former CNN anchor, has been making the rounds of cable news and TV talk programs defending Zimmerman, the man who gunned down unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, Feb. 26.

it is not uncommon for former or current professional talking heads to offer their “services” to victim’s families as “family friends” whenever a major news story explodes into the national conscience the way Trayvon’s shooting has.

You would think that the media would be more forthcoming about the fact that they are interviewing one of their own. But they often don’t because they don’t want to jeopardize their access to the victim’s family.

On Tuesday night, ‘Last Word,’ with host Lawrence O’Donell and his guests The New York Times‘ Charles Blow and The Washington Post‘s Jonathan Capehart, ripped the lid off of Oliver’s claims that he was a “close friend” of Zimmerman’s.

Oliver, pictured above with his wife and kids, couldn't answer basic questions about Zimmerman that a true friend would know.

Lawrence and Blow challenged Oliver's assertions that Oliver knew Zimmerman well enough to be confident that he would not shoot Trayvon in cold blood.

The grilling of Oliver was so Epic that he was trending on Twitter.com before the hourlong segment was even over.

Watch the videos of the Epic grilling of Joe Oliver below.

Also, below, watch a video of Joe Oliver as a young CNN news anchor 2 decades ago.

    Crazy thing is Zimmerman can confess that he was wrong and made a terrible mistake and some people would still try to justify the murder of trayvon, thats how sick of a world we live in american land of the free home of the brave… Blacks always have to go to court for freedom and the whites are born free (let the system tell it)… IM BLACK AND IM PROUD (say it loud)

    Excellent interview as it brought out some fraudulent activity that Joe is being paid by the Zimmerman family. FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL. Cause who could afford to quit their job and do interviews with no income coming in. PLEASSSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

He knew that this guy was exactly the type to be in an interracial marriage, not that there’s anything wrong with that, but you can see when people that are to eager to throw other black folks down the drain are usually the ones that try and erase some parts of themselves. Like they think somehow they have transcended being black if they disassociate from black issues, and identity.
