Trayvon Martin Tape Editing Prompts Internal Probe at NBC
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
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."
