zimmerman address

The trial of George Zimmerman has suffered a few hiccups, but an especially alarming instance occurred when the former night watchman’s personal information was briefly made public on live television.

On Monday, CNN mistakenly broadcast Zimmerman’s phone number, mailing address, date of birth and social security information. The document was shown as part of the cable network’s broadcast and above a graphic ticker that read, “Detective: Zimmerman Seemed Sober.”

The information was aired live while it was presented to the jury during the court trial.

CNN initially denied commenting on the snafu, but a late afternoon statement was aimed to clear up how the document made it to the broadcast portion of the program.

“Routinely the evidence is first given to the Court Clerk for redaction, and that didn’t happen in this instance.  The Court is circling back to attorneys on both sides to make sure they give the Clerk’s office the opportunity to redact the necessary information,” said CNN’s communications SVP Allison Gollust in an email to Politico.
