CNN's Don Lemon: Don't Call Me 'Racist' For Covering Trayvon Martin (VIDEO)
CNN’s Don Lemon directed viewers not to send him any more incendiary tweets over his coverage of Trayvon Martin’s death on Sunday. Martin was unarmed when he was shot by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in late February. His death and the local police department’s failure to arrest Zimmerman took the country by storm weeks later. Speaking to analyst Goldie Taylor, Lemon said he and Taylor were among some of the first journalists covering the tragedy. They agreed that they were obligated to handle the story carefully and “encourage responsibility” from viewers.
