ABC Does Good:"Cops, Witnesses Back Up George Zimmerman's Version of Trayvon Martin Shooting"

The teaser for the ABC story had this picture, a much more balanced view than the MSM has been taking—they've been featureng out-of-date photographs of Trayvon as a harmless child:

Trayvon Zimmerman

Inside, there's this picture:

Zimmerman Injuries

And an excellent headline. (By contrast, the headline of the story that revealed that Trayvon's body had "injuries to the knuckles" was  Trayvon Martin case: Details on Zimmerman injuries, but no answers. For the rest of us "injuries to the knuckles" is an answer.)
