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?”

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.

Talk about agenda!

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.

It’s a HUGE business & industry. It’s what they do best; in fact, it’s all they do. God will deal with them in His own way.

NBC has jumped the shark...

You’re right JLAGRAYFOX - the black community did NOT show up for this .... Good for them.
