Trayvon Martin Tape Editing Prompts Internal Probe at NBC?

~ The Rebel ~ 2012/04/03 04:31:09
NBC News reportedly has begun an internal investigation after
it appears to have aired a misleadingly edited 911 call tape involving George
Zimmerman, the Florida man who fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

The internal investigation was reported by The Washington Post.


The edited call, which aired on NBC's "Today Show" on March 27, featured
Zimmerman talking to a 911 dispatcher.


"This guy looks like he's up to no good ... he looks black," Zimmerman said
in the edited segment.


That, it turns out, appears to be only part of the exchange that took place
on the night of February 26. The complete exchange went like this:


Zimmerman: "This guy looks like he's up to no good. Or he's on drugs or
something. It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about."


Dispatcher: "OK, and this guy -- is he black, white or Hispanic?"


Zimmerman: "He looks black."


Brent Bozell, president of the conservative Media Research Center, called
this mistake worse than a distortion or a misrepresentation and "an all-out
falsehood."

    Only reason NBC is doing an 'internal investigation' is because they got caught!

    so nbc is the only one conducting an internal investigation when all news channels including fox played the same parts of the tape. that kinda scares me.

    but now what does that really have to do with anything that happened that evening or since then?

    Looks like the attempt for race war was well advanced by NBC. 'Bout time to revoke their licenses.

    This is criminal!! Edit for time, sure...but, this editing changed the tone of the tape, making Zimmerman look and sound like a stocker on the prowl

    This shows the power of the leftist mass media and their desire and ability to control the population.

    The only internal probe that would be effective at NBC would be a massive colonoscopy involving a radioactive probe with a cyanide based lubricant!

    It should warrant an investigation at the White House or at least at the FBI or GE..
