Skip to comments.Zimmerman Will Move ĎASAPí on Lawsuit Against NBC for Fraudulent Audio Editing
Posted on 07/14/2013 6:34:32 PM PDT by Kolath
Now that he has successfully defended himself from criminal charges brought against him by the state of Florida for the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman is going to resume a lawsuit he filed several months earlier against NBC News.
Launched in the midst of the state prosecution against him by a separate civil team, the lawsuit is a defamation claim alleging that NBC deliberately altered an audio recording so as to make Zimmerman appear to be racist.

What NBC did was criminal.
CNN too who has been lying the whole time
Justice for George...
Hopefully they will pay dearly for this.
Now it is time to fight for what these media whores did to him. They never learned starting with Richard Jewell.
NBC -—> Naturally Biased Crackers.
I was struck by the lack of expression on Z's face when the verdict was announced.
This man is SERIOUS.
Ask for a billion and make them compromise from there
GZ deserves a windfall - as much as he can possibly get!
This would be a moral victory for GZ (and a much needed monetary one) but I think he’ll have to prove intent -which may be hard. Hope he pulls it off. ‘
Mr. Zimmerman, might I suggest that you go for the jugular?
Go Z go! sue Nothing But Crap network
I love that picture with Grace in the background staring straight ahead expressionless at every witness.
Hope he cleans their clock.
“This would be a moral victory for GZ “
This would be a moral victory for America if these Marxist media thugs could be slapped hard in the face, and loose millions.
It would be especially sweet to see the Commie News Network and PMSNBC get the blunt of it.
I think so...Humble, too. You can tell by his friends and family.
Intent hard to prove?? Me thinks not. There was no reason to edit it.
I hope he destroys NBC completely.
The standard of proof is "the preponderance of the evidence," not reasonable doubt. What possible reason could NBC have had for that edit if not to create a narrative of racism?
Besides, it will never get to trial, because NBC will settle.
Guilty Until Proven Innocent: How the Press Prosecuted Zimmerman While Stoking Racial Tensions
They edited it to provide “context” as they like to say...
The “intent” was profit and TV ratings, so I am not sure NBC can do much on that front anyway.
Proving “Malice” is only required for public officials or public figures in libel and slander cases. Zimmerman was NOT a “public figure” until the dishonest media, and Obama, made him “public”.
So they unintentionally edited out the dispatcher asking him the race of the subject?
They had the support of the White House.
Hell, Go after ALL the MEDIA, and the MARTIN family, who provided/posted the picture of what the six year old son of the president would look like as part of the race baiting.
Then go after the race baiters Sharpton and Jackson who knew the facts and ignored them to make Zim the evil shooter!
Hope he gets rid of his lead attorney (Mark O’Mara), though. The guy was not a fierce advocate.
A lible case- has to show intent. He was a ‘public figure’ at the time too I believe.
But you’re right they’ll settle for a mil or so.
One could say that they turned him in to a “public figure” through their misconduct.
He has a different attorney for his NBC suit. A guy named James Beasley.
Be nice if he ripped them so bad it became ZBC.
It’s well past time to declare war on the media, because they’re warring against us, 24/7.
NBC will probably want to settle out of court and with each party having to remain silent as part of the agreement. We shall see which way it goes.
Not just the networks.. the prosecution lied every minute of every day knowing that the evidence they fought to exclude directly contradicted their statements.
IDs of these folks would be nice.
I hope he sues them enough to put the out of business
I don't think it will be hard to show intent. What other possible excuse could there have been for that edit, except to make Zimmerman sound racist? Whoever made the edit would get on the witness stand and be ripped to shreds, or will have to say he was told to do it. And then whoever gave the order would be made to squirm.
Remember, the standard is lower than beyond a reasonable doubt.
I would expect that the settlement would be much higher than $1mm.
They will settle out of court. No way they are going to chance discovery.
Venue will be Seminole County, too. Comcast is going to have to pay up.
Absent a judge's order, it takes two parties to agree to settle. Were I George Zimmerman, I wouldn't be in a settling mood.
I hope George wins the keys to the front doors of NBC and ABC. Then he can remove anything worth while in the building, chain the doors and burn it to the ground.
I would like to announce the newest media mogul in the country, George
Zimmerman. He recently acquired CNN, NBC, MSNBC through a massive
settlement in a civil case he filed. His first directive as Chairman of Zimmerman Media was to FIRE EVERY single employee!
