CLIFF KINCAID After the not-guilty verdict was handed down, George Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara strongly criticized the media's role in getting his client charged in the case.

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY Barack Obama has never been clear on the distinction between sovereign and servant, between the American people and those, including himself, elected to do the people's business.
