NBC 'EDITS' ZIMMERMAN'S 9-11 TAPE

Yo'Adrienne..AFCL 2012/04/04 13:11:57

NBC News said Tuesday it has concluded an investigation into its repeated broadcast of an edited version of a 911 call placed by George Zimmerman that made it appear he was racially profiling Trayvon Martin the night he killed him.


NBC’s Today broadcast the 911 call last week, but its edited version made it appear that Zimmerman blurted out that Martin looked suspicious to him because he was black. The full audio from the phone call, though, reveals that Zimmerman didn’t mention Martin’s race until the 911 operator asked him, “Is he white, black or Hispanic?”


“During our investigation it became evident that there was an error made in the production process that we deeply regret,” NBC News said in a statement e-mailed to The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday. “We will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future and apologize to our viewers.”


When asked if anyone at Today had lost their job or had been reassigned as a result of the investigation, an NBC spokeswoman said: “We will not be commenting on our course of action."

NBC THE "AMERICAN VERSION OF PRAVDA" has, as it does on a daily basis, warp and twist the news to George Soros's liking.....From day one, they have been intent
on stirring the racial pot, aggrivating a sensitive situation. Just legitimizing Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton's activities in this along with the NEW BLACK PANTHERS
has proven to many of us, that this is an AGENDA...not a news story. What makes
this more important that all the other murders and gang related injuries that happen
on a daily basis.????? NBC knew that the picture they were running of a 12 year
old Choir-boy was totally incorrect, and yet the implication only backed their outrage
that this young innocent boy was murdered in cold blood.....I thought a person is
considered innocent until proven guilty....and I don't recall reading where
street mobs, BLACK PANTHER's, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton are on the
judging committee.
An apology is too late....too little. No wonder everyone criticizes NBC and
their progressive puppets. Matt Lauer, the original talking empty head, and Ann
Curry...her sarcastic tone .....and obvious toxic mindset.....
LAME STREAM MEDIA...and it begins with NBC.....followed closely by ABC
and the wanna-be of all times, CBS...

    NBC Apologizes for Editing George Zimmerman’s 911 Call, only because they got caught! What else have they lied about that the American people don’t know about? But I guess the “More Colorful” the lie the higher the ratings

    NBC News and its partner MSNBC haven’t been on the winning side recently. In fact, two recent incidents have been very unkind to the company. First, there was the revelation that NBC News might have doctored a clip of a 911 call made by shooter George Zimmerman before his confrontation with Trayvon Martin
    .Now NBC News has actually issued a public apology for the editing of the clip, along with an assurance that they will be conducting an investigation to find out how the version was aired. Here’s the text of their statement, as posted by the Washington Post:

    During our investigation it became evident that there was an error made in the production process that we deeply regret. We will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future and apologize to our viewers.

    BLAH BLAH BLAH.......I hope this starts a ginormous "awakening"......in the people who were so quick to point fingers,........
    Ruin a person's reputation.....pour jet fuel on a raging fire........and then say "SORRY"!!! NBC, MSLSD, you are nothing better than PRAVDA....I hope the people see you for what you are.!

    It seems like the networks comprising the MSM are in a race to see who can go the lowest. NBC is currently in the lead, but the competition is fierce and that lead may not last long.

    NBC states - “We will not be commenting on our course of action."

    I don't blame NBC for not commenting...It's hard to comment when the course of action is nothing.

    When things like this are done by propagandists and biased media such as NBC, they are rarely, if ever done in "error".

    I believe much of the public, but not enough, has come to realize this kind of editing and slanting of news is intentionally done to plant a public opinion-swaying seed, even if someone at the network does have to later become a pseudo-sacrificial lamb for the, uh --"error" (wink, wink).

    The collective benefit derived from such journalistic sleaziness far outweighs the detriment, and they know it.

    If it were not so, journalism would be getting better - not worse.

    Watch the next "error" -- regardless of the issue or subject. It will inevitably come, and it make this one look very, very trivial in comparison.

    Yes ABC picked it up and they apologized for playing it. But NBC not only played it their the ones who edited to begin with.

    I doubt it......They all have the same source...but I don't think NBC doles it out.
    It's like public information......NBC actually changed the content, and intent by
    juggling the audio on it....making it sound like Zimmerman was a raging racist.

    Trayvon Martin was on top of Zimmerman punching him when he was shot.


    Besides the fact that almost all media outlets have lied about what race George Zimmerman is (he is a Latino/Mestizo), they are also censoring major important details of the case. Some have even published wild opinions about the 911 calls as if the opinions were factual statements.

    Would you be surprised to know that the statements of the eyewitness are being censored in almost every media story about the shooting?

    1. When police officers arrived, George Zimmerman had a bloody nose and was bleeding from a wound on the back on his head.
    2. The eyewitness who called 911 said Zimmerman who screamed for help.
    3. The eyewitness also reports that Zimmerman was on the ground and Martin was on top of him beating on him.

    Trayvon Martin was NOT on top of Zimmerman punching him when he was shot.
    if Zimmerman shot Trayvon from the ground as he claims, with Trayvon on top of him, then he would have been covered in the kids blood, again requiring the cops to wear gloves. No gloves means no blood, which means he was a safe distance from the kid when he pulled the trigger.Zimmerman should be soaked in his blood.

    That calls into question the positioning of the two at the moment of the shooting. Everything Zimmerman and the police have said is unravelling.

    Also,If Zimmerman had been punched in the face repeatedly (claiming a broken nose) and had his head bashed into the pavement, then he would have marks on him. The cops that processed him would, by standard procedure, have worn gloves if there was blood present on his body. Here is a security video from the police station when he was processed: no gloves on the cops, and you can clearly see that he has no bruises or cuts on his face or the back of his head: http://abcnews.go.com/US/vide...

    Lastly, when you punch someone your knuckles take damage from that impact as well: bruising, cuts, etc. The funeral director testified that he saw no injuries whatsoever on Trayvon's hands and knuckles: http://www.hlntv.com/article/...

    Zimmerman killed this ...

    Zimmerman killed this kid in cold blood, he was never in any danger and this evidence proves that. If someone tells you different, remember this post.

    And all of the media outlets have not lied about what race George Zimmerman.
    He's white Hispanic. Looks like you're the challenged one race-bating.

    Where? police officers arrived george zimmerman bloody nose bleeding wound head

    2. "The eyewitness who called 911 said Zimmerman who screamed for help."

    One witness says the screaming they heard sounded like the young child's, not a grown man's voice. Biometric voice analysis of Trayvon Martin 911 call concluded that Trayvon's voice screaming for help. Nancy Grace recently interview Trayvon's cousin, Ronquavis Fulton, who says he's positive it's Trayvon's voice on the 911 tape.

    3. "The eyewitness also reports that Zimmerman was on the ground and Martin was on top of him beating on him"

    No, he wasn't Read above.
