Is NBC Lying? “No Name” Producer Fired for Editing George Zimmerman Tapes.



How does America KNOW that NBC actually fired the producer that is guilty of editing tape to make George Zimmerman look like a racist?

A “No Name” producer was fired for Editgate.

The NBC producer responsible for the misleading edit of the George Zimmerman’s 911 call has been fired. The producer was reportedly fired Thursday, but the firing did not hit the press until this Friday evening, just before a holiday weekend. NBC News had no comment on the firing.

There was speculation earlier today that Today show producer Jim Bell might have been the person responsible for the edit, which portrayed Zimmerman as a racist, or having a racial motive in shooting Trayvon Martin. Bell did not respond to a question directed at his Twitter account earlier today.

Brian Stelter of The New York Times credits 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 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 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.

The questions are only just beginning on Editgate. The release of the news of the firing just before the holiday weekend smacks of a cover-up; more than that, we know that the edit itself was not restricted to the Today show. Brian Williams and the brass at NBC News must provide answers.

To NBC:  Put a NAME and a FACE on the ACT of tape editing; otherwise this SMELLS of a cover-up and conspiracy to defraud/smear a man’s name (Zimmerman).

  1. Somehow, this does not surprise me. The media has gone mad. They obviously don’t care what they have done to George Zimmerman and his family. And Al Sharpton and the New Black Panthers are having a large holiday, spewing their venom. God help, if a conservative tried to edit a tape, or put a price on (an innocent until proven guilty) mans head. It just proves, you can’t listen to anything the media says!! We need serious changes everywhenre.

  2. Congress is normally a waist of time, but, this would be a time to show
    the American public they care about truth in reporting, What NBC did
    amounts to trying to insight a race riot, our Congress should bring NBC’s executives before Congress and answer these questions in a public forum, and if this edit is proved deliberate, the people involved
    should be prosecuted, and NBC or any media outlet should be fair warned, that this type of behavior can result in their broadcasting license being revoked.
