Were a little bit closer to knowing. Reuters:
An internal NBC News probe has determined a seasoned producer was to blame for a misleading clip of a 911 call that the network broadcast during its coverage of the Trayvon Martin shooting, according to two sources at the network.
NBC News brass interviewed more than half a dozen staffers during its investigation of the misleadingly edited 911 call placed by George Zimmerman just before he shot the unarmed Florida teenager, said the sources, one of whom is an executive at the network.
The clip aired on the networks flagship Today morning show last week.
The edit made it appear that Zimmerman immediately told police that Martin was black, when, in fact, the full tape reveals that the neighborhood watch captain only did so when responding to a question posed by a dispatcher.
There was no clear indication on Thursday of what, if any, disciplinary actions would be taken against the producer or other staff involved in the incident.
The sources at the network, who declined to identify the producer, said NBC News executives did not know the 911 call was misleadingly edited until news reports surfaced days later on right-leaning blogs including Newsbusters.org and Breitbart.com.

Remember, NBC is not the only network that did this. ABC also did this and they punished no one. (Possibly others) Does this indicate inter-Media Coordination? Like inter-Agency Coordination was used in Fast & Furious. Is this being directed by the Obozo administration?
It doesn’t matter who the producer was.
This is Brian Williams’ baby. He needs to be fired.
Shame on him.
Was the person of interest ever revealed????
We need to target EVERY media source that created these race riots using this type of propaganda.
Maybe Spike Lee can tell us the producer’s name and address.
ABCNNBCBS = GGTV = Ganster Govt TV = American Pravda
This was a blood libel, this edited tape case. A lynch lie. Lies this wicked led to lynchings in small towns. That was word of mouth among the locals, whispered lies and rumors that led to the noose. Some true, some false.
But ABCNNBCBS have the broadcast megawattage to blanket the country in a wiched and evil lynch lie, a modern blood libel calibrated to lead to something like a race war. Gasoline poured on a fire, with intent.
American Pravda, ABCNNBCBS.

The discovery process in a nice lawsuit should tell us. Bear in mind, Zimmerman’s father was a judge. They’ll know when and how to proceed.

NBC News Fires Editgate Producer
Several months ago Ed Schultz let the cat out of the bag they were looking for a R King type incident when he tried to compare the OWS getting pepper sprayed to R King.
This nonsense of trying to recreate a R King type incident has been in the works for over a year.
This isn't the work of some podunk producer.
This is coming from the very top.
My money is on Mary Mapes.
Was just going to ask if we, the public, could file a class action lawsuit for being lead away from the truth.
OoOooooOOOooooo.....Pain and suffering here ;~)
