NBC launches internal probe over edited 911 call Trayvon shooting [GM Trucks, Rich Jewel what else?
Fox News ^ | April 2 2012 | Fox News

Posted on 04/02/2012 12:20:56 PM PDT by NoLibZone

NBC has launched an internal probe after running an edited version of the 911 call from George Zimmerman -- the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin -- that made Zimmerman sound racist.

"We have launched an internal investigation into the editorial process surrounding this particular story," the network said in a statement to the Washington Post on Monday.

NBC's "Today" show ran the edited audio of George Zimmerman's phone call to a police dispatcher in which Zimmerman says: "'This guy looks like he's up to no good … he looks black."

What else has NBC lied about?

Richard Jewel won 500K
NBC did the fake GM Trucks blow up story

Now NBC faked the 911 tapes in the Trayvon shooting.

Anyone know of other stuff they have done?

Thank you.

The fact it was edited now makes it a clear defamatin case in favor of Zimmerman. Defendant please open your checkbook.

It should be called “The Zimmerman Network” after this.

Something else it does, and Limbaugh pointed it out, is reveal the hatred that NBC has toward Zimmerman, and whatever it is that NBC thinks Zimmerman represents.

They will not discover anything that goes against their motive. It would be like Sharpton admitting that Tawana Brawley was a farce . . . he'd be sued off this planet.

Ergo, NBC won't find a thing. Coupla' lawsuits from the Zimmerman family would be awesome!

I wouldn’t settle for 500k. It would be tens of millions, and a huge show showing what really happened on NBC. I would include how the race batters used him to get money and how the justice department refused to go after the new black panthers to prosecute. It would have to run on NBC. But that will never happen because they would appeal appeal appeal till he is killed by some nut job leftist.

What they need over at NBC is to stop sharing staff between units.

This edited version was obviously supposed to run on MSNBC.

Notice the picture they used with the article. Making the kid look as though he was just a sweet, innocent little boy Naw, the media, even FOX, would never use Trayvon’s Facebook picture, showing a grown teen, with tattoos and body piercings. Printing a picture of him as a sweet little boy garnishes Liberal hysteria.

As Limbaugh questioned, what is there to investigate? NBC lied and deceived. Not only should the network be sued into oblivion, their license should be revoked and Zimmerman should sue the exact person(s) who did the editing PERSONALLY!

Do not settle or cut any deals! Take NBC's smarmy asses to court and bring them down!

Substitute “Fox News” for “NBC” and the lefties will tell us exactly what kind of punishment should be doled out.

Left wing agitators masquerading as reporters.

Things are really ugly right now.

Each of the alphabet media do the same selective editing, either for tv, web, or print. Are we really surprised at this? I think not as they do it openly and without repercussions.

Rush is Right.

“Investigation” means “We are focus-grouping which of the available excuses will hurt us the least”.

I unplugged my cable from the TV in 1998 after Seinfeld’s last episode. I’ve never seen a reality TV show!

Nice to see Mary Mapes found work, after all. I think Lucy Ramirez editted a tape she got from Bill Burkett.

pretty pathetic that we are determining guilt or innocence by how light or dark somebody’s skin appears to be in press photos

There should be way more serious charges than defamation, but they will always fall on that part of the 1st Amendment that they agree with - freedom of the Press

Why does anyone watch these horrible NoNews Networks???

Stop, I say, just stop!

>>>Anyone know of other stuff they have done?

How ‘bout everything anything reported as NEWS by any organization associated with NBC is automatically a LIE until it is determined otherwise?

Kind of like Reagan & the Ruskies: Trust, but verify — but start with DON’T Trust...

Yep. Punitive damages, to deter them from future conduct of similar nature. The amount MUST be chosen to be financially painful.

The threshold is callous and wanton disregard. Know the act is harmful, and do it anyway.

Trayvon dies, NBC lies

That would make a good bumper sticker...

Yeah right, sort of like the Holder Justice Department launching an internal investigation into "Fast & Furious"!

I haven't either. And from what I hear, we've missed exactly zip.

The tape editing was done by an intern. He was actually an RNC plant trying to discredit NBC. He has since disappeared, and probably was using a false identity.

What else has NBC lied about?


I just assume they all (leftists) lie all the time about everything that comes out of their cakeholes. If I’m interested in something I hear (rarely), I check an independent source (starting right here on F.R.).

Works pretty well...
