NBC News has completed the internal investigation into the edited tape of George Zimmermans 911 call, which was aired on Today. The network admitted an error and apologized to viewers.
The edited call was aired on Today, but was aired repeatedly including during MSNBC segments about the Trayvon Martin case. NBCs audio made it seem as though Zimmerman voluntarily offered that Martin looked suspicious because he was black. The unedited audio, The Hollywood Reporter notes, reveals that Zimmerman didnt mention Martins race until the 911 operator asked him, Is he white, black or Hispanic?
From The Hollywood Reporter:
During our investigation it became evident that there was an error made in the production process that we deeply regret, NBC News said in a statement e-mailed to The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday. We will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future and apologize to our viewers.
When asked if anyone at Today had lost their job or had been reassigned as a result of the investigation, an NBC spokeswoman said: We will not be commenting on our course of action.

Too late. They opened Pandora’s Box of Racism and flung the nasty contents everywhere.
Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, Sue, .....................
Did not apologize to GZ.
NBC apologizes on Zimmerman tape screw-up
Yes, they opened the box. But what was the last thing out of Pandora’s box?
@Reuters Craig Sonner told @ABC last week that if charged he would personally drive Zimmerman to Sanford PD. More on @ABCWorldNews
Has hell frozen over?
I want them to give four times the air time to the apology and playing the truth.
Then fire ALL those involved.
NBC is lying again. NBC has no CREDIBILITY LEFT. Anyone listening to the tape can tell this was NO ERROR. It was professionally done to PAINT ZIMMERMAN as a RACIST. Anyone watching any NBC/MSNBC channels and taking these clowns seriously has to have their head examined. They and the rest of the SOCIALIST DEMOCRAT FRAUD infested MSM should be made to financially pay a price for promoting fraudulent politically biased stories. Do what you can to accomplish this
not enough IMO. I’m hoping for a Richard Jewell style lawsuit.
The last thing (Hope) sure wasn’t the kind -0- is offering. His is false.
The ONLY kind of Hope is the Easter-kind.
We will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future ...”
Does ANYONE believe that? The public has to continue to watch what they do and how they do it and call their bluff every single time until they find there is no advantage to exposing their bias.
“During our investigation it became evident that there was an error made in the production process...”
Wowsers. This explains everything! These guys are pretty sharp. Not as sharp as politicians but pretty darn close.
I’ve noticed the new black pussies have been very quiet lately...
“A lawsuit against NBC could pay for George Zimmermans legal fees. Id sue their ass off.”
How about a class action lawsuit by the American people and a demand for the resignation of the head of NBC. And also demand the immediate arrest of the head of NBC news for defrauding the public trust.
Then you tie GE to NBC Andy Immelt to GE and Obama to Immelt.
Ever notice how apologies, explanations and retractions are in the passive voice? “If anyone was offended,” or “an error was made.” Not “I am sorry that I offended some people,” or “we made a mistake.”
It was done to inflame racial tension,
A race war would be dynamite for ratings
“Id sue their ass off.”
They are dishonest even when they “apologize” for lieing. Does anyone care what they say about anything? Liar...liar...pants on fire!
