Oops, that was a mistake.
Easter Surprise or Good Friday Dump:
NBC News president, Steve Capus, says it was a mistake – the altering and splicing of the 911 tape that left out pertinent words (just a few words so it took quite a small little snip) to make it appear Zimmerman made a spontaneous statement when he was only answering a question of the 911 operator.
No, sorry, that was no “mistake.” A mistake might be termed as saying words you don’t mean to say, but altering a tape? Nope, that is intentional. And I heard, also, that this same misrepresentation was repeated about 5 times. (Which I believe mainly because that’s their MO when the corrupt media wants to drive something into the minds of the people. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.)
This is nothing unusual, they just got caught. And bear in mind this is not talk radio or some comedy show, but what is supposed to be news you can trust. Far, far from it.
It is reported by NBC/MSNBC that the producer that did this was fired. And we are supposed to believe them? Sure. Right. We don’t even know who it was.
But what more can they do but fired him? Not much, I guess.
But I wonder if they made him return the bonus as well.
As exposed by Fox News and media watchdog site NewsBusters, the “Today” segment took this approach to a key part of the dispatcher call:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.
Here’s how the actual conversation went down:
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.
