NEW YORK ó NBC News has fired a producer for editing a recording of George Zimmermanís call to police the night he shot Trayvon Martin, a person with direct knowledge of the matter said Saturday.

The person was not authorized to talk about the situation publicly and spoke on the condition of anonymity. The identity of the producer was not disclosed.

Did a search and didn't see it posted yet.

I was betting that nothing would come of this investigation. I guess I was wrong.

I can't wait to find out who it was.

I’m sure the person’s name will come out during discovery when Zimmerman’s attorneys are done.

That would be a resume enhancement over on Algore’s TV channel. I understand they have an opening.

Color me shocked.

It is standard procedure for the lame stream media to cook the facts any way they want to.

So they got caught. Big deal (for them)

My guess is this is some poor low level staffer two weeks away from full retirement. The found a good reason to fire him.

So if NBC is firing people because of their alleged intentional “mistakes”, someone there needs to explain Brian Williams continued employment.

They made it up. That's why the can't give a name.

Same reason there was no body when Ubama "killed" Usama.

What this pustule did was to perpetrate a violation of our 1st amendment rights.

This is HORSESHIT! What person that has been fired would agree to a condition of not speaking and anonimity?

There is more than meets the eye here, folks. The REASON this lying enemy agent for liberals and elites isn't talking is that he/she has either been given a fat parachute, OR a cush high-paying job at another enemy location.

Enemies, pure and simple. That's what we need to start thinking of them as.

Fired, but under condition of anonymity? Huh?

There was a payoff involved. Otherwise this makes no sense at all.

It certainly looks as if someone actively wants a race war. Why? Is he so sure "his side" will win it? Or is this just more quadrennial demagoguery designed to marshal votes for the Democrats?

Somewhere out there is a graveyard for liberals thrown under the bus for making their chiefs look bad, aka ‘exposed’...

and that graveyard uses buses for headstones...

Sorry, NBC.

Hide behind the fig leaf of employment confidentiality all you want but the Public has a right to know who this person is and, most certainly, Zimmerman's lawyers do.

Maybe we, the discerning Public, need a media offenders registration database so we know who in the "free press" has falsified records, perpetuated a fraud on the Public and eroded the Public Trust by shaping a story.

I think under every "reporter," particularly of political news coverage, it should be known what political connection they have, who they clerked for, who they were on staff with, what White House they worked in.

Can you really separate Chris Mathews from Jimmy Carter (D-GA) and House Speaker Tip O'Neill (D-MA)? George Stephanopoulos from Bill Clinton (D-AR)? Cokie Roberts from her father, House Majority Leader Hale Boggs (D-LA) or her mother who succeeded him in congress?

Indeed. They didn't waste any time publishing lies about Zimmerman but they will protect the liar who helped put his life in jeopardy.

“There is more than meets the eye here, folks. The REASON this lying enemy agent for liberals and elites isn’t talking is that he/she has either been given a fat parachute, OR a cush high-paying job at another enemy location.”

Precisely my first thought when I read the headline.

If this actually occurred, I’m sure the ‘producer’ involved has been well-paid for taking one for the team.

They did their damage to the reputation of George Zimmerman, and their real intended target, stand your ground laws.

Now they are attempting to wash their hands of it.

Actually, I think jail time is called for. This is fraud that destroyed Zimmerman’s life.

And when you fire up racist Black America and the racist Neo-Black Panthers, the NBC culprits are guilty of assault with a deadly weapon.

I think Spike Lee has backed off after his address was publicly published on the Internet.

Stirring up riots might not be wise. Best to leave that up to the Shit Stirrer at Pennsylvania Ave who has round the clock protection.

You know, a lot of people misunderstand Jesus when he said 'turn the other cheek'. If someone slaps you on your right cheek, you are supposed to turn and offer your left. But, this act of turning to that direction frees up your right hand for the sword at your waste.

Turn the other cheek actually means, get ready to lay down some steel on the mofo.

The MSM all went out of their way to portray Zimmerman as a white racist and even went so far as to corruptly modify the audio even though the audio sequence has been in print for weeks so it is so easy to uncover and verify this hoax. They are at the point now that they don’t even care now who knows that they are all a bunch of dishonest, lying, liberal Obama suckups, who hate white men, republicans, and conservatives. It used to be that they at least tried to hide it and deny it. They don’t even care anymore.

They’re desperate. Like zombies, the small part of their brain that still functions realizes their dream of a enviro-fascist, cradle-to-grave government controlled America is in danger. They’ve NEVER been this close to achieving their dream of destroying the country they live in (why they would WANT to do that is anyone’s guess, except that they’re suffering under some kind of mass insanity), and now that they can TASTE it, the degree to which they’re willing to go to accomplish their goals is off-the-charts.

From USA Today:

Update at 4:18 p.m. ET: The law enforcement official who spoke to AP said that Zimmerman is not in Florida but that authorities know where he is. They are planning to arrest him soon rather than let him surrender.

Sounds like the charges will be something stronger than violating city noise ordinances.
