CNN Airs Zimmerman’s Address, Phone Number, Social Security Number

Via Politico:

CNN appears to have broadcast the social security number and telephone number for George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman who is suspected of having killed Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla., last February.

On Monday at 12:16 p.m. ET, CNN broadcast a photocopy of a document that included Zimmerman’s address, date of birth, social security number and phone number. The image appeared above a chyron that read, “Detective: Zimmerman Seemed Sober.” The document aired on screen as it was presented in court to the jury.

CNN spokespeople did not immediately respond to a request for comment regarding the public disclosure of Zimmerman’s information. We will update here if and when they do.
