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?
