On NBC’s in-house “investigation” into its own doctoring of a 911 tape that made George Zimmerman look like a bigot in the shooting of Trayvon Martin…
A 100% distortion. A 100% recreation of what happened. In order to put together that sound bite that you just heard, they had to knowingly and willingly edit the question of the dispatcher, and then they had to edit Zimmerman saying “he looks black” right after he says “he looks like he’s up to no good.” But Zimmerman wasn’t through when he said, “This guy looks like he’s up to no good.” That’s where NBC stopped it. Zimmerman kept on. After he said “This guy looks like he’s up to no good” he said “Or he’s on drugs or something – it’s raining.” He’s walking around looking about. NBC takes that out, they took the dispatcher question out, and they added on Zimmerman saying “He looks black.” What is there to investigate here? Anybody with two ears and an IQ of 50 knows what happens here. Is the investigation of who did it? Or are they investigating if it’s wrong? What are they investigating at NBC? They are investigating how they can get out of this. They’re investigating how they can come up with a plausible explanation for this. That’s what NBC is doing.
