    Now that he has successfully defended himself from criminal charges brought against him by the state of Florida for the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman is going to resume a lawsuit he filed several months earlier against NBC News. Launched in the midst of the state prosecution against him by a separate civil team, the lawsuit is a defamation claim alleging that NBC deliberately altered an audio recording so as to make Zimmerman appear to be racist.

    Ending a tenure marked by the costly decline of the 'Today' show, the failure of the newsmagazine 'Rock Center' and an erosion of journalistic values, Steve Capus Friday resigned as president of NBC News after almost eight years on the job. While NBC once had the number one morning and evening news shows on his watch, the last two years have been a story of failure for Capus and the network's news division. SNIP Capus also spent millions on one of the sorriest excuses of a newsmagazine in TV history, Brian Williams' "Rock Center," which has been a rock solid...

    Steve Capus, President of NBC News, continues to tolerate MSNBC’s unprofessional, insensitive, and now unpatriotic ways. This weekend MSNBC host Chris Hayes insulted parents and families of American soldiers whose sons gave their lives in service to their country by saying their military service and death at the hands of an enemy does not automatically qualify them to be a hero. Hayes said calling these soldiers who gave their lives for our county “heroes” almost provides “justification for more war.” The conservative blogosphere exploded this weekend and last night Chris Hayes issued a weak apology. Not only was this insulting...

  • The George Zimmerman 911 scandal is now being called Editgate, and NBC News is acting accordingly

    Which is to say: sneaky. If you need to catch up on this story, click here. And then check out the latest from Tom Maguire, who has been all over this: NBC is busy taking down the evidence of its repeated usage of its bogus edit of the George Zimmerman 911 call… Yesterday the discovery by Les Jones of two similar bad edits at NBC 6 Miami for stories from March 19 and March 20 were widely broadcast by the InstaPundit. As of this writing, those stories have been “fixed” by the web editors to eliminate the troublesome passages (and...
  • Trayvon Martin call was "mistake, not deliberate": NBC (Refuses to name supposedly "fired producer")

    NBC News' decision to air an edited call from George Zimmerman to police in the moments before he shot Trayvon Martin was "a mistake and not a deliberate act to misrepresent the phone call," according the president of network's news division. The edit in question, which aired on the network's flagship "Today" morning show last week, made it appear that Zimmerman told police that Martin was black without being prompted, when, in fact, the full tape reveals that the neighborhood watch captain only did so when responding to a question posed by a dispatcher. Under growing public pressure to explain...

    As circus great P. T. Barnum said, "There's a sucker born every minute." The latest sucker appears to be the #1 clown at NBC News, President Steve Capus, who keeps tripping on his over-sized clown shoes. Steve keeps falling in the sticky stuff left by the rogue circus elephants at MSNBC who force him to “Lean Forward” so far that he keeps doing face plants in front of millions of TV viewers. What a clown! Capus is the clown that hired Chelsea Clinton to work as a journalist because of her "vast experiences." That got the audience laughing for sure....

    NEW YORK -- News executives Thursday tried to shake off the excoriations of the media emanating from the Republican National Convention, defending their coverage of GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin as responsible and evenhanded. ______ "I really do take exception to it," NBC News President Steve Capus said. "These terms get thrown around in an awfully cavalier way, and they're incredibly damaging. We're in the business where words matter, and those are awfully, awfully strong accusations."
