    Default Breaking: NBC Fires Producer Who Created False Zimmerman Audio

    http://newsbusters.org/blogs/matthew...immerman-audio


    NBC News has fired the producer it says was responsible for creating the deceptive audio recording of George Zimmerman communicating with a 9-1-1 operator, according to the New York Times.

    The network is still refusing to release the name of the producer, although according to Times reporter Brian Stelter, the producer is based in Miami and has worked there for a number of years. According to Stelter's network sources, NBC is still insisting the deceptive edit was not done deliberatiely. The network has refused to say how exactly someone could accidentally have edited the tape to make Zimmerman appear to be racially motivated:


    NBC News has fired a producer who was involved in the production of a misleading segment about the Trayvon Martin case in Florida.

    The person was fired on Thursday, according to two people with direct knowledge of the disciplinary action who declined to be identified discussing internal company matters. They also declined to name the fired producer. A spokeswoman for NBC News declined to comment.

    The action came in the wake of an internal investigation by NBC News into the production of the segment, which strung together audio clips in such a way that made George Zimmerman’s shooting of Mr. Martin sound racially motivated. Ever since the Feb. 26 shooting, there has been a continuing debate about whether race was a factor in the incident.

    The segment in question was shown on the “Today” show on March 27. It included audio of Mr. Zimmerman saying, “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.”

    But Mr. Zimmerman’s comments had been taken grossly out of context by NBC. [...]

    The editing of the segment was initially noticed by NewsBusters, an arm of the Media Research Center, a conservative media monitoring group. On March 31, NBC told The Washington Post that it would investigate. [...]

    The people with direct knowledge of the firing characterized the misleading edit as a mistake, not a purposeful act.

    While NBC has taken a good first step toward rectifying the situation, until the network releases the name of the person and explains its theory that the edit was not deliberate, its credibility is still under question.

    They aren't going to explain how the edit was not deliberate. There isn't any way to explain it that does not condemn them. The more they talk about it, the more they'll provide evidence against themselves to be used in potential lawsuits by Zimmerman, his family, and any other people with the last name of Zimmerman who get persecuted over this.

    I've prepared some audio and video for use in the courtroom before and I am *extremely* careful not to cut out anything that is relevant to forming a judgement in the case.

    NBC did the exact opposite. They wanted a hot story, and damn it, they got one. I hope it bites 'em in the ***.

    This is very good for Zimmerman, and hopefully it will assist him in raising cash or his defense.

    He can shake down NBC just like Al and Jesse would do it!

    Really, these things still amaze you? Its par for the course and has been for decades (really pathetic lately due to the complexity of the bs being represented these days). The only disillusionment I have these days is with the amount of people that can't seem to/want to wake up.......... or are sucked into these stories. Don't worry, you'll get over it with the help of the GIM2 support team.

    I agree. One could characterize it as covert attempt to incite a riot or other civil unrest. The fact that NBC took so long to come clean and still refuses to name the producer means they still agree with the tactic to incite but were caught red handed. I hope NBC realizes that this will not go away by itself at this point. If there is any bloodshed people will point back to NBC as one of the root causes. I hope they are lawyering up by the bus load.

    Three possible scenarios.

    1. It was a mistake. Ok, for brevity of discussion and so we don't waste our time, lets just conclude that no one on God's green earth could possibly believe this load of dirty diaper. Lets move on.

    2. It was not a mistake BUT, it was only known and edited and broadcast by one person. The infamous Mr. X who cannot be named. I simply cannot fathom ONE PERSON being able to do this. They would have to do this without anyone in the organization having any knowledge of the taped 911 conversation. What kind of news organization would not have any quality assurance, no vetting, nothing? Simply not a believable tale.

    3. NBC wanted to incite opinion and civil unrest.

    Sadly, number three is the most likely.

    4. The dirty edit was conducted by an embedded team from fed.gov whose clearance(s) precludes them from any responsibility, or admission of said PSYOP.

    Well, it paid off for NBC.

    Here in Floriduh, two white guys just got arrested for offing three (very possibly innocent!!) black folks.

    Kewl eh?

    But there is a footnote: One of the white guys just had his father murdered by a...

    ...wait for it...


    Yup.

    This can escalate. The NBC's utter joy.

    Whether this will have an immediate escalation or not any white on black crime will be splashed across the press. In other words, the press will get the reaction they want one way or the other.
