Lilia Luciano, a Miami-based NBC News correspondent, is no longer working for the network, TVNewser has learned.
Luciano last reported for NBC News March 31. Until that point, she had been reporting mainly on the Trayvon Martin story.
Sources tell TVNewser Lucianos dismissal came after an investigation which also led to the firing of a seasoned NBC News producer over a similar, misleading edit.
In a story for the Today show on March 20, Luciano used part of the George Zimmerman 911 call in which an entire phrase (italicized below) was taken from a later part of the conversation:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like hes up to no good or on drugs or something. Hes got his hand in his waistband. And hes a black male. Dispatcher: Are you following him? Zimmerman: Yeah. Dispatcher: Okay, we dont need you to do that.

They can’t even agree how to “enhance” the audio.
If this keeps up, expect NBC to throw it’s remaining editorial weight behind tort reform. Either that, or change the network name to ZBC. (Zimmerman Broadcasting Corp.)
Odd how the butt kissers in the MSM NEVER make a ‘mistake’ that makes dems look bad.
She ain't Lucky, Luciano, is she?!
I saw her photo......I don’t think she probably has that smirky look on her face now.
She’s just another Miami idiot
They need to stay out of the Sun and off South Beach.
She has learned at a young age the lesson that you can do your bosses bidding and he will hang you out to dry, if needed.
You need to learn at a young age that you can be fired for doing the right thing or be fired for being a dumbass tool. It is better to go for the “right thing” category.
NBC News liked to pride itself on how “Fair” it was and several CEOs and VP’s have stated that even if NBC did own MSNBC, which they acknowledge leans Left, they had set up a wall between MSNBC’s opinions and commentaries and NBCs factual reporting.
Worst network in the USA.
She’d come 18 months ago from Univision, the White Hispanic network, to NBC, the Unithink network.
Zimmerman needs to sue.
When it’s over, NBC should become ZBC.
It appears most if not all the firings are of regional or local staff not the folks in NYC
It's a winner.
“Zimmerman needs to sue.”
As Mark Levin might say “I WILL SUE THEIR ASSES!”
