Cheadle then went back to pointing out how awful NBC’s editing of the 911 tapes were and how important the slight is. He even seemed to agree that NBC was trying to forward a specific narrative at the cost of the facts.

He also didn’t buy any defenses of NBC put up by some of his followers.

Cheadle even suggested NBC demote the person responsible for the edit.

He expressed his concern that what NBC did might damage the chances that justice is done in the case.
