Sean Hannity & George Zimmerman Conversation Shouldn't Be Kept a Secret (VIDEO)

What a long, strange week it's been for Trayvon Martin's (alleged) killer, George Zimmerman. And it's only Wednesday. First, we learned that he was fired by his legal team, then we hear that he's been talking with Fox News' Sean Hannity -- off the record. And now we've just learned that, according to a Senior Law Enforcement source, Zimmerman will be charged

Tuesday, Zimmerman's ex-legal team held a news conference, announcing that they'd no longer be representing him, and during the conference, they made mention of Zimmerman and Hannity's conversation, stating: "We learned that he had contacted Sean Hannity of Fox News directly ... and we believe ... that he spoke directly with Sean, off the record, and he's not even willing to tell us what our client told him."

No need to "believe" Zimmerman spoke to Hannity -- he 100 percent did. Hannity admitted it on his show this week. But the real question is: What did the two talk about?

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but no one knows. Hannity's not spilling. He said on his show:

I want to set the record straight. For a few weeks we have been pursuing an interview with Mr. Zimmerman to give him a chance to tell his side of the story. Now yesterday I was contacted by an individual that we in fact believe was George Zimmerman. He reached out to me, we spoke on the phone about his case, and I agreed not to report on the contents of that conversation. That's it.

So ... Sean Hannity, a journalist and professional windbag pundit, spoke to one of the most talked-about people currently in the news ... but he's not revealing what they spoke about? Okay ... what kind of journalism is that? Shouldn't informing the public be in his best interest?

Despite the fact that I'm sure Zimmerman felt perfectly safe and comfortable talking to Sean Hannity, a truly "understanding" guy, one can only assume that the conversation strictly pertained to business. They probably spoke of a deal for when Zimmerman does want to talk -- you know, on the record.

Still, though, the whole thing is incredibly odd. Why is George Zimmerman out talking to the media right now? Even if the media isn't talking to the public? Shouldn't he steer clear of any and all news sources (no matter how biased they are), and strictly stick to speaking with lawyers? Something seems fishy. But I'm guessing we'll find out soon enough -- on The Sean Hannity Show.
