Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman is suing NBC over the network’s botched editing of his 911 tape, Page Six can exclusively reveal. We hear Zimmerman’s attorneys are about to file a complaint against NBC and its top executives, naming news president Steve Capus and correspondent Ron Allen, who was the reporter on the scene for the broadcast on “Today” on March 27.

Zimmerman should never have to work another day of his life after what these MSM SCUMBAGS did!

NBC couldn't have a vault big enough to hold the recompense which should be awarded to Zimmerman!

News prejudices a jury??

No. 2 is releasing Zimmerman's school records.

I'd say all charges will be dropped...and very soon....

I am reminded of

NBC still doing what it always does, make news.

Thank you, George Zimmerman. This is the only way to keep the news media half honest.

I hope he wins so big that he owns NBC, then he can turn it into a white Hispanic channel!

That poor man, they made his life a living hell, I have no doubt that the stress contributed to his early death. He was only 44 years old when he died.

I agree. Strange isn't it that we Americans have almost become indoctrinated to expect the status quo from the media. When I first heard about this case, on that crazy jane Velez-Mitchell show, I fully expected to see a very blonde blue eyed white giant. (I had to go to HLN website to find her name) I can't describe my surprise when I saw the first tv picture of Zimmerman. He did not fit the verbal profile made by her and her guests.

It is unusual to file such a lawsuit before the SYG case is resolved but this is a smart move. This puts NBC on notice that the longer that the Zimmerman SYG case takes to be resolved, the more zeros they will have to add to the check.

Obviously the defense found something in the little thug's school records and its other discoveries.

Let's see if any of the news media change their tunes about this case after this notification. To date they have not. They have mostly just ignored all the evidence coming out that has been exhonerating Zimmerman.

Remember what ABC (IIFC) did to Richard Jewel?

The Kenyan must go.
