Trayvon Martin Tape Editing Prompts Internal Probe at NBC

JT For Political Reform 2012/04/03 11:36:50
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."

    An internal investigation?

    If NBC can't be trusted to report news accurately, then it can't be trusted to investigate itself on the issue of reporting news accurately.

    The FCC would fine NBC if one of its news anchors accidentally dropped an F-bomb while on the air. Why shouldn't the government punish it for deliberately twisting the truth, which to me is a far worse offense?

    I agree with part of what you say.

    As far as the government getting involved, we have way too much of that already. The people can make NBC change by not watching them, it's a popularity contest in news today. Don't watch them and write into their headquarters and tell them how disatisfied you are with their broadcasting and you will no longer watch their pititful biased news shows. I did that, I wish more people would. We can make a difference.

    Sounds like you are all for slander, misrepresentation and lies if the left does it!

    Are you insane?

    ABC investigating itself is like a serial killer being in the jury at his own trial. ABC is so corrupt and bias. They produce the "News" to fit their predetermined agenda. ABC hasn't reported an honest story since WWII

    This needs to be posted everywhere constantly until they fire the heads of NBC for distorting the news and for trying to start a race riot. This isn't fair and balanced news, this is re-manufactured news for sensationalism.

    You know that's never going to happen; they've done it before and NBC will do it again in a decade or so.

    I know. I'm just thinking if enough people see what NBC has done here, that either they will not trust NBC and stop watching or contact NBC and demand the truth in broadcasting to the point heads will roll.

    The viewership is the same as MSNBC and they wouldn't know a lie if it came up and hit them in the face. Maybe they should be hit where it hurts them the most - their pocketbook

    When people stop watching, that usually hits them in the pocketbook. ;-)
