Another Misleading Edit Costs Another NBC News Employee Her Job
TV Newser ^ | May 2, 2012

Posted on 05/02/2012 4:27:33 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

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 Luciano’s 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 he’s up to no good or on drugs or something. He’s got his hand in his waistband. And he’s a black male. Dispatcher: Are you following him? Zimmerman: Yeah. Dispatcher: Okay, we don’t 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 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.

They lied.

NBC=MSNBC

MSNBC=NBC

Worst network in the USA.

She’d come 18 months ago from Univision, the White Hispanic network, to NBC, the Unithink network.

I hope Zimmerman sues - every 'mistake' NBC makes supports one side and only one side. They've never made a mistake that made conservatives look good - or demcorats look bad. Same with the rest of the objective press. Almost like it's intentional... like a pattern of discrimination ...

Zimmerman needs to sue.

When it’s over, NBC should become ZBC.

“Zimmerman needs to sue.”

As Mark Levin might say “I WILL SUE THEIR ASSES!”

Ha! She did what NBC bosses always want - she slanted the story left. The only problem with this case is that she tarred and feathered Zimmerman as a “white racist” during the Klan with the Tan rally via creative editing. NBC is responsible for a lot of white people getting beat up and for the Klan putting a price on Zimmerman’s head. She/NBC got caught in this particular propaganda venture because a lot of the public had available the original tape and found out they manipulated for liberal race hate.

They only fired her to cut their losses for when Zimmerman or another victim of the whitey witch hunt they orchestrated comes to collect on their little racist “mistake.”

WHITE hispanic... the MSM played him as some conservative who identified with the cops - neighborhood watch and all... The ‘press’ seems to be reassessing now that they know Zims democrat and a ‘not so white’ Hispanic... but I take your point.
