Which NBC producers defamed George Zimmerman?

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?

The fact that NBC have not informed their listener, but only issued a news release to other media is in fact negligent. They have not take full responsibility for their action or made any attempt to amend their “error”.

It doesn’t matter who the producer was.
This is Brian Williams’ baby. He needs to be fired.
Shame on him.

NBC may determine who did it or authorized it...but they will certainly not name said individual(s) nor will they be punished appropriately.

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.

Full partners in Gangster Govt, Inc.

We need to target EVERY media source that created these race riots using this type of propaganda.

Don't news shows usually roll the names of the segment producers during the end-credits? Seems the producer in question could probably be identified from that. Or at least could get it down to 3 or 4 names ... all of which could be targeted (ala Spike Lee) until the actual name is given up.

For too long news organizations have been playing by their own rules, making the "facts" fit whatever their ideological narrative is going to be. To my recollection, the only major national news organization that has never been burned by a segment that contains gross distortion (if not outright manufacture) of facts is FOXNews. To wit:

ABC: Food Lion story.

CBS: Bush ANG/"Fake but Accurate" story

CNN: Tailwind/US used nerve gas in 'Nam story

NBC (and by extension MSNBC): Exploding pickup trucks and the Zimmerman 911 call.

I tried telling everybody when MSNBC hired Al Sharpton they were going to try and recreate a “Rodney King” type incident.

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.

malice, n. Law. The intent, without just cause or reason, to commit a wrongful act that will result in harm to another.

The cases described at at http://www.oyez.org/cases/1960-1969/1966/1966_37 are not based upon causing a threat of physical injury by news organizations; and in the cases described at http://www.oyez.org/cases/1960-1969/1966/1966_37 there was no malicious intent nevertheless..

it seems to me that any lawyer could easily sue the hell out of ABCNNBCBS, et al.

When we get the name, will we tweet the address too?
If there is any violence in Sanford FL, in which any person, or organization (Police dept, municipal offices, taxpayers etc) are harmed physically or financially, they must hold NBC, and other networks civilly responsible. Perhaps a class action suit would be possible. FL, Sanford, and its citizens are being directly harmed by this malicious action by an NBC employee that sought to ‘juice’ this story for personal gain and that of his employer.

EXCERPTS

In Trayvon’s case, (Parks & Crump) alerted the news media more quickly. They phoned the Rev. Al Sharpton almost instantly, and organized marches with local civil rights activists. They also started pressing for federal involvement and alleging a cover-up from the get-go.

(snip)

“In court, you have the jury,” Crump says. “Our job is to get the case to a jury. We need to fight first in the court of public opinion. The jury is the American people.”

Someone Must Be Punished for Killing Trayvon Martin, Says Mom Sybrina Fulton
by Allison Samuels Mar 22, 2012 2:04 AM EDT

EXCERPT

The now controversial killing of Trayvon garnered virtually no mainstream media attention in the days immediately after he was fatally shot, but that all changed when the teenager’s parents decided to hire civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump and his law firm to get more answers on exactly how and why their son died.

“They called me the same day they were notified that their son was dead,’’ Crump told The Daily Beast. “When I heard their unarmed teenage son was shot to death, I just knew there’d be an arrest shortly. There wasn’t an arrest 48 hours later, and then I knew we’d have to take this outside of Sanford if we wanted justice.’’

Trayvon’s parents were told by the Sanford police that Zimmerman wasn’t arrested in their son’s death because the facts of the case did not dispute his claim of self-defense.

For Crump, taking the Trayvon Martin story outside of Sanford simply entailed dialing up a few well-placed friends such as the Rev. Al Sharpton. Crump worked closely with the civil rights leader in 2006 on another racially charged case—the controversial death of a 14-year-old, African-American inmate of a Florida boot camp.

“I had to call people like Sharpton and a few other black civil rights leaders and the black media to tell them about this story,’’ said Crump. “I had to get them to understand what happened to this young man and what hadn’t happened in his case so they could spread the word.’’

Historically, cases of murder and violence against blacks in the United States rarely have been given the same amount of attention as cases in which the victims of crime are white—and often go unnoticed and unprosecuted.

Just days after hearing the details of Trayvon’s death, Sharpton arranged to have Crump and the teenager’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, on his syndicated radio show and his popular MSNBC show, Politics Nation, to tell their story.

(snip)

In the wake of non-stop media attention from the likes of Sharpton and CNN’s Don Lemon concerning the Trayvon Martin case, black media blogs such as MediaTakeOut.com and Huffington Post Black Voices also began publishing accounts and editorials about the Florida case—daily. Almost instantly, readers of all races, ages, and backgrounds began tweeting and posting on Facebook their outrage over how the police have handled the case, and the lack of an arrest in the shooting. To date, almost 1 million people have signed a Change.Org petition to have Zimmerman arrested. In response to the widespread outrage, the Justice Department has opened an investigation into the shooting.

Thanks for the background.

It reinforces the question I asked, Who is directing this. And it is not coming from Sharpton, he is not “sharp”.

This is coming from the direction at 1600 Penn Ave. Now lets look for the blood trail back to the source.

They are NOT going to tell.

This was no “mistake”. No one with a brain believes that. NBC thinks this is a good idea, after all, it helps Obama, to upset blacks and get the racism meme going. His poll numbers ARE up aren’t they? There was huge back thumping going on at NBC over this, wasn’t there.

So they got caught. They are doing just like Political thugs do, in chicago, in arkansas. Find a fall guy, come out mouthing apologies, and then later reward the guy for his faithfulness by a better job or a payoff.

Believe me, as soon as this all cools down, this guy is going to get some handsome compensation somewhere, if not at NBC, somewhere else. Perhaps even in some nice political position with the Dems. After all, he’s experienced, and the Dems own the MSM.

18 USC § 1959 - Violent crimes in aid of racketeering activity

This preliminary release may be subject to further revision before it is released again as a final version. Nevertheless, the preliminary release should be useful to those seeking a more current version of the law. As with other online versions of the Code, the U.S. Code Classification Tables should be consulted for the latest laws affecting the Code.

Those using the USCPrelim should verify the text against the printed slip laws available from GPO (Government Printing Office), the laws as shown on THOMAS (a legislative service of the Library of Congress), and the final version of the Code when it becomes available.

Current as of Tuesday, February 21, 2012 - up to Pub L 112-90

(a)Whoever, as consideration for the receipt of, or as consideration for a promise or agreement to pay, anything of pecuniary value from an enterprise engaged in racketeering activity, or for the purpose of gaining entrance to or maintaining or increasing position in an enterprise engaged in racketeering activity, murders, kidnaps, maims, assaults with a dangerous weapon, commits assault resulting in serious bodily injury upon, or threatens to commit a crime of violence against any individual in violation of the laws of any State or the United States, or attempts or conspires so to do, shall be punished—
(1)for murder, by death or life imprisonment, or a fine under this title, or both; and for kidnapping, by imprisonment for any term of years or for life, or a fine under this title, or both;

(2)for maiming, by imprisonment for not more than thirty years or a fine under this title, or both;

(3)for assault with a dangerous weapon or assault resulting in serious bodily injury, by imprisonment for not more than twenty years or a fine under this title, or both;

(4)for threatening to commit a crime of violence, by imprisonment for not more than five years or a fine under this title, or both;

(5)for attempting or conspiring to commit murder or kidnapping, by imprisonment for not more than ten years or a fine under this title, or both; and

(6)for attempting or conspiring to commit a crime involving maiming, assault with a dangerous weapon, or assault resulting in serious bodily injury, by imprisonment for not more than three years or a fine of [1] under this title, or both.

(b)As used in this section—
(1)“racketeering activity” has the meaning set forth in section 1961 of this title; and

(2)“enterprise” includes any partnership, corporation, association, or other legal entity, and any union or group of individuals associated in fact although not a legal entity, which is engaged in, or the activities of which affect, interstate or foreign commerce.


Seems to me we have RICO possible as class action suits against any and all involved, from news stations to Sparpton, the NBBP, et al. To be joined by the people that fled their house, the people attacked ‘for Trayvon,’ etc. Both criminal and civil. Zimmerman also has a case against falsely reporting/malice aforethought.
