New York Post: George Zimmerman to sue NBC over deceptively edited 911 call

NBC called its misleading edit of George Zimmerman’s 911 call a “mistake.” The New York Post reports that mistake may cost the network:

Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman is suing NBC over the network’s botched editing of his 911 tape, Page Six can exclusively reveal. We hear Zimmerman’s attorneys are about to file a complaint against NBC and its top executives, naming news president Steve Capus and correspondent Ron Allen, who was the reporter on the scene for the broadcast on “Today” on March 27.

Newsbusters reminds us of the media malpractice that falsely painted Zimmerman as a racist.

Today played an audiotape with Zimmerman saying on a 911 call, “This guy looks like he’s up to no good…he looks black.”

Visit Newsbusters for the full context, sans NBC’s revoltingly irresponsible edits.

How long until the Twitter lynch mob renews its calls for Zimmerman’s rape and murder?

Twitchy will monitor this story and update you with any developments.

    Good! I honestly think he was wrong and should probably go to prison. But I’m sick of the way the media can’t just tell us the truth. They have to tell us the story they *want* us to believe.

    They give us an edited tape of Zimmerman’s call. They show us a picture of Martin two years younger than he really was.

    “We know you’re too stupid to understand all of this, so this is how you should feel. Now run along and watch some TV shows telling you how backward anyone who believes in a consistent moral code is.”

    They think a code of ethics is a way to encrypt messages in wartime.

      What did he do that would deserve incarceration?

  • SameJerkDifferentName

    Who DIDN’T see this one coming? ooops, nbc, that’s who. hahahahaha

  • Truth1991

    how can you conservatives support this racist pr_ck? he harrassed a kid for being “scary looking” and when the kid told him to go away shot him, the witnesses said that the zimmerman physically instigated the “fight” and then when martin shoved him in self defense shot him

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Oh shut up, liar. And stuff the race card up your cracker arse.

      • Truth1991

        what race card? a hate crime is still a hate crime, zimmerman killed martin because he was black and was walking around at night, there is no other reason he would have shot him

        • michael s

          Remember its the race card when its someone a conservative doesn’t like. I support your statement. Just as its only a hate crime when it happens at FRC.

          • Truth1991

            what happened at the FRC was no hate crime, everyone in there deserved what was going to happen to them and i hope it happens again

          • Johnny Banco

            You’re wrong – Trayvon, a chooming, burglarizing, hoodie-wearing, hateful racist thug with AWFUL, criminal-enabling parents, is the one who deserved what he got, for threatening Zimmerman’s life when he was on top of him, evilly & mercilessly beating him.

          • Neverbeenpriveleged

            Justice for all people, even if zman appears white, he still deserves to get a just sentence by a coutt of law, not the court of corrupt media jerkwads.
            .
            justice for trayvon? how about justice for all people, not just the racist black people?

          • Johnny Banco

            And I hope you get EXACTLY what you wish upon others – that’s only fair, right? :)

          • Truth1991

            the FRC has done more than enough to deserve what was planned to happen to them, floyd corkins is the american claus von stauffenberg

          • Johnny Banco

            You are comically hysterical, akin to the crazed PETA weirdos who scream, “Meat is murder!”

          • Shawn Smith

            Thanks for displaying the loving tolerance of the modern day liberal. We await further enlightenment, Gandhi.

          • Neverbeenpriveleged

            they are consistent, they hate whites, males and straights…….

          Utter twaddle. You are either an outright liar or dangerously ignorant; either way you merit no further response.

        • http://www.facebook.com/corey.dennison Corey Dennison

          You mean, no other reason than to stop Traythug from pounding his head into the concrete and then trying to go for Zimmerman’s gun, right? I’m sure that’s what you meant, right?

          And what the hell kind of sense does “zimmerman killed martin because he was black and was walking around at night” make when you lead off the SAME post with “what race card?

          Do you know what cognitive dissonance means?

          • Truth1991

            really? because all the witnesses but ONE said that zimmerman had followed and harassed trayvon, and that trayvon, fearing for his safety shoved zimmerman ONCE in self defense, and zimmerman hit the ground then shot trayvon

          • Neverbeenpriveleged

            The onyl way Zman could have shown he was NOT a racist in the eyes of the trayvonites, he would have had to willingly sacrifice his life so trayvon could get his proper initiation into the local gang known as the “GOONS” who wore hooides in winter and the news media knew all about them (the news media combiend with trayvon parents have leid this whole way through, that is why this case is unraveling like a sweater full of worms).

        • Neverbeenpriveleged

          LIAR, the FBI exonerated zimmerman of racial attitudes (the trayvonites have shown their racism though

    • michael s

      However all of these people have a totally different standard whenTrevor Dooley asserted his self defense and SYG claim.

      • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

        Oh I dunno. Sounds reasonable to me. But then, the story I read didn’t mention anyone’s color so of course I don’t know WHAT to think (rolls eyes).

        But please — direct me to any statements made here about the Dooley case which will demonstrate your assertion.

        Hey wait — “these people”? “THESE PEOPLE”? That sounds kinda racist to me!!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/corey.dennison Corey Dennison

      Wow…that’s a whole new telling of the story…and petty much counter to what every eye witness said.

    • Shawn Smith

      Regardless of his guilt or innocence (and I think he’s probably guilty), he shouldn’t have to put up with the major news stations repeatedly lying to make him look more guilty. We should be able to turn on the news and learn about what actually happened, not whatever half-true story they’d like to feed us this week.

      • Neverbeenpriveleged

        i guess you DONT recall the duke lacrosse rape lie (that al charlatan and jesse just me jackson got so involved in years ago)…..those scum bag racist ran around telling the world that a few boys raped this black lady just cuz she was black (the news media loved the story, they didnt care in the least that it was a fabricated story, it was too juicy to ignore)……….so, these new black pansies ran around the town making threats and encouraging vigilante violence (even though the witness was totally UNBELIEVEABLE andc at least oen of those accused could prove he was elsewhere).
        .
        the news media dont care how false the accusation if those accused can be taken down a peg or two…..those accused were white and male (and this the news media thought they were fair target to attack) and the accuser was black and female (and we all know women NEVER tell lies, right?)……
        .
        well, this woman did tell a lie (and racial epithets were throw, they were begun by the racist black lady who called one of the boys a small dicked white boy who couldnt get any with paying for it)…..
        .
        btw, eventhough the fake rape accusers were paid $400 each to perfrom, they didnt perform for more than five minutes (these white boys in their infitine white boy power could have told these girl to just leave and refuse to pay them a dime, but instead, they helepd them into the car and made sure they got all their belongings and paid them for work not perfromed)……
        .
        and crystal gale magnum, mrs misunderstood, she was so upset at having been paid for not working, made up a fake rape claim to get them back (the cops and the news media lapped up the leis….they didnt need any real proof, just the lying words of a stripper)…….

  • michael s

    I hope he loses because he shouldn’t profit off killing someone who wasn’t doing anything wrong or bothering him, yet this habitual law breaker chose to leave the safety of his vehicle to game stalk and kill someone. Its only selectively deceptive editing when its someone you like.

    • Grandma HeadInjury

      Let’s see…who has profited the most off Traythug’s murder…oh, yeah, Mom and Dad!

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

      And that give the Collaborationist Media the right to patch up an edit of something to make it sound like he was saying and thinking things he never did? Absolutely vile. BTW, there’s nothing disputed about statements made by the FRC murderer. No-one HAD to do an audio photoshop with that.

      • michael s

        First of all the FRC shooter didn’t kill anyone so how is he a murderer? Also his statements weren’t mentioned at anytime on my previous post. Saying no -one had to do an audio photoshop is as incorrect as a Bristol Palin abstinence ad. No money for zman

        • http://www.facebook.com/corey.dennison Corey Dennison

          Wow…you drag Bristol Palin into this when you’re getting your punk ass handed to you? What kind of a man are you?

        • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

          Pardon me, ATTEMPTED murderer.
          “Don’t shoot me, it was not about you, it was what this place stands for.” No you didn’t mention his statement, wonder why? The point was that he clearly stated the reason he was shooting up the place — we did not need a deceptively edited tape or transcript to make it seem as if he was saying something other than what he did — as we got with Zimmerman. And yes, I used the phrase “audio photoshop” deliberately, as Photoshop is often associated with deception and making things to appear other than what they are. That’s what NBC did with the 911 tapes — they concocted a misleading and deceptive sound bite intentionally to do those things.

          • michael s

            I knew all about the statement that racist pig squealer made when he shot Leo Johnson. Again selective and edited Audio video is done all the time
            Fight it all the time not just when its someone you support.

    • http://www.facebook.com/corey.dennison Corey Dennison

      Which is your worst trait? Your utter stupidity or your outright mendacity?

      • michael s

        the point was audio photoshop sounds as incorrect as a bristol palin abstinence ad. no money for zman.

        • Neverbeenpriveleged

          Justice is for all people, not just the racist blacks who run around threatening vigilante justice (I actually live here in the state of florida and while you may think its fun for black racists to run to your state and threaten violence, but i dont)……
          .
          As soon as you demanded justice for trayvon, you showed your racist colors……JUSTICE IS FOR ALL, not just blacks or whites or hispanics.
          .
          if you think justice is just for trayvon, you are the problem

          • michael s

            Where did I say justice was only for black not whites or Hispanics? Justice should be for all. History has proven otherwise. By the way since you live in Florida, what’s your view on the Trevor Dooley case? No money for zman.

    • Neverbeenpriveleged

      its only vigilantism when you are threatening black people……When blacks are marching in the streets threatening vigilantism, that is the good kind of hate (the kind blacks and the lame stream media harbor in their hearts for whites)

      • michael s

        Once again since you live in florida, what’s your view on the Trevor Dooley case? NO MONEY BUT PRISON FOR ZMAN.

      • michael s

        i ask you again since you live in florida,what’s your view on the Trevor Dooley case?

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Gee Twitchy, you’re going awfully light here,calling it a “misleading edit”? How about “distorted lying slander”?

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    But yeah, good for him. I hope this is the first crack in the whole crooked foundation that the Collaborationist Media has built itself on.

    What a bunch of idiots, NBC is and has been for a very long time nothing more than propaganda puppets for the communist democratic party.
    It is sickening to me how they will outright lie and create lies ( editing ) for the communists in America!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/corey.dennison Corey Dennison

    “Botched” editing? Hard to say it was botched when they did it on purpose!

  • Neverbeenpriveleged

    This case has been VERY useful to show the world who the racists are, they go by the name NEW BLACK PANSIES, they work for the news media, they work in the highest offices of government. NOT all of them are black who hate white people, they consist of many white people that have been taught to hate white people, their accomplishments and their aspirations.
    .
    America is the MOST diverse nation in the world with more ethnic, linguistic and cultural diversity than any nation in the entire world and yet these haters want you to believe that we are in fact the most xenophobic, most racist country in the world when the turth is the exact opposite.
    .
    This case has exposed many racists, alright. This case has exposed many many many people who are full of hate and contempt for white people. If you think blacks are fully justified in their hate for whites, like the majority of the lamestream media (LSM), then YOU are the haters.
    .
    The USA (along with Fraance and Britain) were the first nations ever to outlaw slavery in the history of human civilization, but you can ignroe that fact if it makes it easier to hate whites.
    .
    Just dont foget the Irish and the Scotts were held in various types of bondage for well over 1,500 years. blacks dont have a monopoly on oppression, but they are just full of contempt or hate and/or ignorance enough to think they are

  • Neverbeenpriveleged

    JUSTICE is for all people, not just the black racists!
    .
    If you think justice is just for Trayvon, you are the hater, YOU are the racist.
    .
    If our president thinks that only his son should get justice (or only people who would like like his son would), then he is not competent to rule our nation since he appears to be racist.
    .
    When you come to my state to demand justice for only one ethnic group, EXPECT to be called the racists (dont be surprised)!
