Finally! NBC fires one Zimmerman-gate producer
George Zimmerman is still in hiding, thanks in part to a deliberately misleading "edit" of his 911 call to police. The good news is that the person responsible for misleading NBC's viewers has been fired. Better late than never. Hope his name comes out soon so he can get all the "recognition" he deserves for his deliberately misleading "work." There's more good news. It wasn't the lazy liberals working for the MSM that caught the smear and held NBC accountable. It was Breibart.com and Newsbusters.com doing the job the MSM used to do.
FTA: "Brian Stelter of The New York Times credits NewsBusters.org for being the first to catch NBC's edit. He provides a link to this NewsBusters post dated March 30. However, the NewsBusters story is actually based on, and links back to, a story published here at Breitbart.com two days earlier. In that story, author Dan Riehl highlighted the edit to the Zimmerman 911 tape as it appeared in print at MSNBC. The MSNBC story was originally published March 21st, six days before the same edit was used in the Today show broadcast.
Yesterday, a Reuters story credited both Breitbart.com and NewsBusters for bringing the problem to the attention of NBC executives.
It is likely that, if not for conservative new media, the misleading edit, which inflamed racial tensions in the Martin case, and which was repeated by Stetler's own New York Times, would have gone unnoticed and uncorrected. As it is, the producer responsible for the edit at Today has been fired, but the individual who made the same edit to the earlier MSNBC story (since corrected) has not been identified or disciplined. Nor has anyone at any other outlet or network -- many of which made similar selective editing choices -- been punished."
A second producer still has some explaining to do.
