NBC issues apology on Zimmerman tape screw-up


As bad as it gets

quote:

That apology addresses the “Today” show’s failure to abridge accurately the conversation between Zimmerman and the dispatcher in this high-profile case. This is how the program portrayed a segment of that conversation:


quote:


Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

And here is how it actually went down:


Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.

Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?

Zimmerman: He looks black.


It's hard to treat NBC any differently than Fox or MSNBC with this garbage.

And sorry if Germans - I've been out of pocket for a couple of days.

Notice they apologize to the public and not GZ. Pathetic.

I don't think it is. I hadn't heard they actually issued the apology, but did know about the internal investigation

Agree. That one was really awful, and NBC ought apologize much louder and better for it. That or drop to the level of Fox/MSNBC forever.

I can't see how the shite the partisan networks do is much worse for reasonable discourse than that.

Wait, you actually thought NBC was somehow a different organization than MSNBC?

They are only doing this as a result of the fact that they had eggs all over thier faces, and were called out over the obviousness of it.

Racebaiters. Hell, they gave Al Sharpton his own show. Maybe Zimmerman can sue for a couple mil to start a new life somewhere without black racist trying to collect that Black Panther bounty on his head.

Sew the wind, read the whirlwind.

GZ reputation was harmed by them editing the tape to make him sound more racist to fit the narrative that had been reported. What's confusing?

The network made a public apology and that's proper protocol. What? It would make you and Zimmerman feel better if someone would have looked into the camera and with a tearful eye had say . . . this one's for you, Zim.

Can't put the toothpaste back in the tube...how many "enraged" people will see or care about the apology?

You really suck at being a voice of reason. Slander and libel can easily be construed by thier editing involved. Now go play in the sandbox with DA and Otto.

I can't get over the fact that they're still using five year old pictures of Zimmerman and Martin.

WTF?

They screwed up and apologized. But I'm sure you believe, without a doubt, that NBC editors sat around and intentionally decided to defame Mr. Zimmerman.
