Zimmerman calls Barbara Walters for impromptu live interview
MIAMI — George Zimmerman called ABC newswoman Barbara Walters Thursday during her live TV show, hoping to grant an interview a day after their negotiations for a sit-down broke down.
Walters told viewers watching Thursday morning’s “The View” that she flew to Florida Wednesday in the hope of scoring an interview with Zimmerman, who is charged with second-degree murder in the killing of Miami Gardens teen Trayvon Martin. She said he showed up dressed in a T-shirt and made demands the network could not meet.
The New York Post reported, and the Miami Herald confirmed, that Zimmerman asked for a month’s stay in a hotel.
