Did NBC Air Edited Zimmerman 911 Audio To Incite
Big Journalism ^ | March 31, 2012 | Dan Riehl

Posted on 03/31/2012 12:40:22 PM PDT by trappedincanuckistan

Two days ago, Big Journalism reported on a published report by MSNBC staff and NBC News that contained an irresponsibly edited quote from George Zimmerman's 911 call that mislead to portray him as racist. It's now emerged that NBC actually aired an edited version of the call that matches the published report.

In the NBC segment, Zimmerman says: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.”

The full version, though, unfolds 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.”

911 operator: “Okay. And this guy, is he white black or Hispanic?”

Zimmerman: “He looks black.”

After playing both versions, Hannity said: “They forgot the dispatcher’s question! How could NBC, in good conscience, do that?”

I can’t stand Sean Hannity! They didn’t “forget” the dispatcher’s question you gutless pansy, they purposely left it out in the hopes of creating more doubt about Zimmerman’s story in order to incite the mob and continue their perverted and invented storyline! MORON!

Par for the course. NBC edited audio. ABC edited video. CNN enhanced audio.

Just to add to the farce of the Obama media, MSNBC reported a massive rally in Sanford, Florida led by mob instigators doing Obama’s bidding, Al Sharpton, Ben Jealous & jesse Jackson, etc.!!! That massive mob was in reality just a few hundred folks. The big rally was naught but a big flop!!! Not much support from the Black American community for their Black racist leaders or Obama, the community organizer!!!

I remember the guy who got accused of the atlanta bombing Richard Jewell sewed some of the media for stuff they said about him.

I wonder if that would be fitting in this as well. Seems like it.

“NBC” and “good conscience” in the same sentence?

Surely, the author jests.

They are intent on starting a race war for their chosen liberal messiah.

Riots make news.

News sells commercials.

Commercials make money.

The purpose of “newx” is to fill the space between the commercials. If it is truthful that is a lucky byproduct.

How could NBC, in good conscience, do that?

Of course, the answer is obvious: conscience is not involved. True leftists have long since lost any conscience they once had; evil is their guide.

Duh, of course they did.

While channel surfing yesterday evening, I happened upon the national NBC evening news to see the male anchor doing a segment on the incident. It was beyond disgusting. The anchor’s main idea was the continuation of Martin being the sweet little innocent angel and Zimmerman being the big mean white racist shooter including his past booking picture and sensationalizing his record of the most heinous violence against police and women. It ended with a rant that if the law had been just (hey, he’s white so he’s above the law, right?), he’d have been convicted of those past crimes and wouldn’t have been allowed to carry a weapon.

O’Reilly keeps showing the one picture on the left here. He was only 13 when that picture was taken and he is 17 and a thug now. I've asked O’Reilly in two separate letters to please show the other pictures of what he looks like now because the media is making look like a “man” killed a “little boy”. Still no results from O’Reilly. Finally I wrote him and asked why he wont do the newer pictures and asked him if he was afraid of being called a racist. Still no response. By not showing the picture, I believe, that is contributing to the violent mess we can all see coming.

same here, Hannity is a coward who never wants to piss o out he MSM much , never talks about conservative social issues and for him to say how could NBC do that is pathetic.

Why anyone even gives him air time and adds to his viewing figures is beyond me.
he’;s nothing but a fraud making a ton of money off the conservative movement and people are taken or fooled into him.

No Sean, they did it on purpose you nitwit. Hopefully Zimmerman can sue them and all the others trying to lynch him.

If this or some other leftist instigated BS gets bullets flying in the streets I do hope the good side puts these
rabid dogs down in the process.

I’d like to know who made the call to doctor the tape against Zimmerman.

This is the game that the media plays. They clearly wanted to inflame things and I believe almost that this kind of selective editing should be prosecutable by law. Zimmerman should sue. This isn’t some blog or some two bit video jockey. This is professional media selectively editing so as to defame Zimmerman and inflame racial division. This isn’t the first time but every time we see this kind of thing it reaffirms what kind of evil that we face in the media.

Not much support from the Black American community for their Black racist leaders or Obama, the community organizer!!!

I spoke to two black friends, both in their mid 20's, yesterday, and BOTH of them said that they were getting VERY TIRED of JESSE and AL and their "plantation" mentality.

Ajanet aleady has here own business and her husband to be, Gary, is going to college and working while studying to be an engineer. Neither says that they see lack of opportunity because of their race.

Whenever I see them I honestly don't relate to "color" but character.

The only reason to drop the dispatcher's question is to create the illusion of racist intent and incite the public.

It's despicable; I hope Zimmerman looks at any recourse available to him.

You know, the Obama media, even Fox News claimed there were at least a thousand folks there. There were not, no way!!! The aerial photos of the gathered throng looked about two or maybe, three hundred racists, union thugs, low life and dirt bags!!! Actually, American Black folks are being used by Obama’s thugs and racists, and...they know it, to their credit!!! , sharpton,

Some dead punk kid gangsta ain’t gonna cut the mustard!!! Time for Black folk to flush Obama, Jackson, Sharpton, Farrakhan, Wright, Jones, Winfrey, the NAACP, The CBC, etc, down the obscurity toilet!!! Time to take care of business and get free from dat economic slave plantation, run by Obama and his thugs!!!
