Bob Costas Sounds Off on Zimmerman Case, Ignoring Suit Against Sportscaster’s Network


NBC Sports talker Bob Costas caught plenty of heat for launching into an anti-gun rant in the wake of the murder/suicide committed by Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher.

Last night, Costas waded into the subject once more, but this time he brought up the George Zimmerman case to buttress his points.

“What does common sense tell you about the likelihood of that confrontation ever taking place in the first place if George Zimmerman was not carrying a gun?”

Not so fast. Costas’ own network is being sued for shoddy journalism involving Zimmerman’s case. That didn’t prevent the sportscaster from weighing in with more curious quasi-predictions like how he said with certainty that both Belcher and his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, would still be alive if the football player didn’t possess a gun.
