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 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.

CNN Report of Racial Slur in Trayvon Martin Case Under Scrutiny (Video)
The cable news network twice enhanced audio of a 911 call placed by George Zimmerman and came up with two different results.
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.
I’m surprised they didn’t scapegoat some intern production assistant claiming (s)he was some evil republican infiltrator.
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.
NYT article this morning said NBC Fired the Producer responsible for the editing.
If you play the 911 tape backwards at that questionable point it is clear for everyone to hear:
Zimmerman said “PAUL IS DEAD”.
I kid you not..
He must have practiced that for months to get it right...
I predict Zimmerman will be happy this happened because NBC will end up funding his defense team.
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.

Doesn’t matter. The shareholders should be demanding the immediate resignation of the CEO.
