It’s impossible to have paid any attention to the news over the past couple of weeks and not know about the Zimmerman/Martin case. I wrote about it myself back on March 26th, with specific reference to how the news media and many of the usual leftist groups were leaping to unsupported conclusions and, frankly, asserting things that weren’t facts in evidence. At the time, I didn’t know just how right I was that that’s what they were doing. I also didn’t know some of them were outright manufacturing things.
NBC is one of the most egregious offenders, deliberately editing the audio of the 911 call Zimmerman made reporting the presence of a suspicious person in the neighborhood. They cropped out entire questions asked of Zimmerman by the dispatcher so as to make Zimmerman appear to be offering up a judgement that Martin was suspicious solely because he was black. Having been caught in the attempt, NBC supposedly did an investigation and found that some production person “made a mistake” and edited the audio. I didn’t buy it then and I sure don’t buy it now, now that NBC is engaged in an all-out effort to quietly remove all evidence of their attempted frame-up:
NBC is busy taking down the evidence of its repeated usage of its bogus edit of the George Zimmerman 911 call. This follows the firing of a producer for the use of the same bad edit on the March 27 Today Show. Left unanswered – what about the March 22 use on the Today Show? [LATE ADD: a third usage of “He looks black” has been found and edited out of existence (but not Google Cache!) at NBC 6 Miami, as described below. When will the Elite Media sniff a cover-up?]
NBC must have a very low opinion of the intelligence of their consumers to be trying to pull this kind of crap in this day and age. They aren’t the gatekeepers to information any more and what they’re doing is being done in the full light of day, their blindness to that fact notwithstanding. Their product – the “news” they broadcast – cannot be trusted to be in any way accurate. They are no longer a news agency, they’re a propaganda arm of the left. It’s a shame they’ve come to this, but it was their decision.
