Skip to comments.NBC News Accused of Editing 911 Call in Trayvon Martin Controversy
Posted on 03/30/2012 5:59:09 PM PDT by NoLibZone
Critics say the "Today" show attempted to incite racial anger when it cut crucial seconds from audio of a phone call placed by George Zimmerman just before he killed the teenager.
In Interview With Piers Morgan, George Zimmerman's NBC News is being excoriated in some circles with competitor Fox News Channel leading the charge for selectively editing audio of the 911 call placed by George Zimmerman just before he killed Trayvon Martin.
The NBC segment in question featured anchor Ron Allen and ran on the Today show on Tuesday. On Thursday, Sean Hannity and guest Brent Bozell played the NBC version of the 911 call and compared it with the unedited version.
In the NBC segment, Zimmerman says: This guy looks like hes up to no good. He looks black.
The full version, though, unfolds like this:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like hes up to no good, or hes on drugs or something. Its raining and hes just walking around, looking about.
911 operator: Okay. And this guy, is he white black or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.
After playing both versions, Hannity said: They forgot the dispatchers question! How could NBC, in good conscience, do that?
This isnt bias, this isnt distortion, this is an all-out falsehood by NBC News, answers Bozell, who runs a conservative watchdog group called the Media Research Center.

There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs-partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays.
Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.

It’s a gotcha...b*******.....
There, fixed it for 'em.
You mean NBC lies and misleads ?
Disgusting. Purely disgusting.
Sure seems to meet the “knowing or reckless disregard for truth” standard...
This isnt bias, this isnt distortion, this is an all-out falsehood by NBC News, answers Bozell.
No, between this and the ABC attempt in hiding Zimmerman’s head injury with their icon, this is propoganda that has not been seen since Nazi Germany.
Another example of the Corrupt Liberal Media(CLM) in action.
Although there are some that say it should be accurately described as the “Corrupt Leftist Media”.
No matter. “Corrupt” is the operative word.
There is nothing “mainstream” about its values or ethics so please dont flatter it by calling it the “Mainstream Media”
Any person who in any way is harmed because of this propaganda needs to sue NBC for a trazillion dollars to teach them a lesson- thou shall not incite violence.
And let's not forget that the same company published stories on "cop-killer bullets" before the fact that cops wore body armor was general knowledge. Even though police associations and known anti-gunners BEGGED them not to run the story. The result, criminals began shooting cops in the head, and the number of dead cops increased.
Why would anybody be surprised that an organization with this pedigree, now an official part of the Obama regime, would do all they could to further their agenda, including exacerbating racial tensions in order to further polarize the nation, to try to ensure as much racial tension as possible before the election.
Find out who is responsible for the edit, who agreed to air it, and see if charges can be filed for causing to incite a riot.
So with the immediate appearance of Ass Sharpton and Jesse ‘Baby Daddy’ Jackass and then with ABC appearing to hide Zimmerman’s head injuries with their logo and now NBC appearing to doctor the tapes so as to appear racist, does ANYBODY think that someone from high up is trying to incite an all out race war?
What would be the one thing needed to declare martial law?
Accused???? Hell, they downright chopped the hell out of it, making the defender appear to be a racist. NBC is about as worthless as a news organization can get.
You know it, and I know it, but is there an ombudsman at NBC or is there anyone who can force retraction/apology?
Otherwise this just sits in the echo chamber and goes nowhere.
This guy looks like hes up to no good. (LAARGE CUT) He looks black.
Wow. That’s blood slander.
Tens of millions in lawsuit for that alone.

I take care of her as she only has one leg and can not get around on her own.
They’re not even making much of an effort to hide their bias. It’s as if the Liberal Media want George Zimmerman dead. This is going to get much uglier before it gets any better.
It was so obvious from the beginning that the MSM was given their marching orders to perform a lynching from the beginning.
Amazing, even for NBC.
Anyone that thinks these people can be embarrassed is delusional.
Good for you taking care of her. Just let her know that the media she watches attempts to steer her assumptions away from her own good judgment.
I’ve made this point before -
Expert more and worse.
The Leftist media is 100% behind Obama. They have realized - they can’t lose any more credibility with rational people - who already know they are biased pond scum - so will ust go balls out for Obama for the next 8 months.
The irrational viewers - don’t penalize the media for idiocy - they just don’t. So - with no penalty - and nothing to lose- media going full speed ahead.
This is nothing. by August, they will be falsifying data.
Here is another one of the most disgraceful examples of an NBC smear job ever aired.
Absolutely beyond belief:
The Liberal Media has already gone as low as anyone thought it could. Now it’s brought out a shovel.
NBC - the network that once had the dignity of Tim Russert - now a lying racebaiting rabble rousering ....
NBC - the network that once had the dignity of Tim Russert - now a lying racebaiting rabble rousers ....
Have you seen this? It backs you up.
Nothing like riots, burning cities and bodies in the streets to bring a little excitement to the news room and a boost to the ratings.
I analyze, and conclude. Sometimes I take a long time to understand - but then I do.
When I conclude, I don’t say “maybe” or “this makes me feel ...”.
Watch - it is going to make you sick. 2008 was nothing compared to what you are going to see.
I don’t know when I concluded - maybe thinking about the possibility that Obama will serve an entire term as president without ever passing a budget - and the media - for the most part - is silent. And this - during a financial crisis - (not just continueing balanced budgets). Just think about that -
“Video Killed the Radio Star” - the song in the video - was the first video played on MTV.
I can empathize with your mom’s connection to NBC. I trusted NBC for years. Started out as a college student watching Brokaw and Pauley on Today; then went on to believe everything they told me over 30 years of evening newscasts.
Never again. Never, ever, ever, ever again.
I’d forgot that one thanks for posting.
“incite to riot”
NBC: Nothing But Communism.
NBC’s editing was pure race baiting propaganda, looking to start a race war.
Zimmerman should sue NBC for all its worth.
The same network that put incendiary devices on GM pickup Trucks to show them exploding on impact.
This is simply par for the course, to my mind.
NLZ, within 5 years, probably sooner, expect the Gangster Government Media to simply hire actors and make up ‘911 calls’ outright.
One of my biggest fears... On this, I hope you're wrong.
The Hoodie Tea-and-Skittles crowd are going to get what they ask for........people will no longer call the cops first.....then it’ll be just dead bodies layin around....
and plenty of folks have been waiting a long time to give em what they ask for. Oh well.
