1. I don't believe Joe Oliver and Zimmerman were ever friends.

Joe Oliver is a plant....a paid bi- racial actor pretending to be a friend to spew misinformation. That's my feeling ...my gut instincts.

23. According to the article his wife is friends with Zimmerman's mother in law

"I mean, he took a man's life and he has no idea what to do about it. He's extremely remorseful about it," Oliver said, relating stories told to him by Zimmerman's mother-in-law, a close friend of Oliver's wife.


I wondered how this new Zimmerman apologist had gotten access to so many national news outlets. Why did Oliver leave CNN, anyway?

Zimmerman's mother-in-law.

AIDS Disclosure Brings Lawsuit
LATimes
December 27, 1989

<snip>

SACRAMENTO A young mother is suing a Sacramento television station because it allegedly disclosed she had AIDS after promising not to air any information about her personal life.

The suit filed recently in Sacramento Superior Court also claims that KCRA-TV reported the woman's son had tested positive for AIDS at birth, which was not true.

The complaint alleges libel, fraud and invasion of privacy, and seeks an unspecified amount in damages. In addition to the station, the suit names reporter Joe Oliver. KCRA-TV is an NBC affiliate owned by Kelly Broadcasting. The station's attorney, Rick Robinson, said, "We're not in a position to comment until such time as we have reviewed the complaint."

15. This is

more of the attempt to cast doubt on what transpired.

<...>

"He couldn't stop crying. He's a caring human being," Joe Oliver, 53, a former television news reporter and anchor in Orlando who has known Zimmerman for several years, told Reuters in a telephone interview.

"I mean, he took a man's life and he has no idea what to do about it. He's extremely remorseful about it," Oliver said, relating stories told to him by Zimmerman's mother-in-law, a close friend of Oliver's wife.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/25/joe-oliver-george-zimmerman-trayvon-martin_n_1378390.html

His wife is a friend of Zimmerman's mother-in-law?

The information he's relating isn't even first hand.

17. Yep.

He knows Zimmerman's mother in law...so his retired judge father and his wife likely hired the guy.

For the obviously-auditioning-for-a-job "former news anchor".

Possibly a Juan Williams wanna-be?
