This is justified. There is absolutely no excuse for what they did to that man with that edited tape. The obsession to cast everyone as racist and the craven willingness to destroy lives in the process has got to stop.

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. He also remained the reporter for the story on “NBC Nightly News.”

A source tells us, “The suit will be filed imminently against NBC and its news executives. The network’s legal department has put everybody in the news department involved with this incident on notice, telling them not to comment.”

NBC launched an internal probe after producers misleadingly edited the 911 call placed by Zimmerman just before he shot the unarmed Florida teenager. The edit made it appear that Zimmerman had immediately told police that Martin was black, when the full tape reveals the neighborhood watch captain only did so when responding to a question posed by a dispatcher. Combined sections from two different parts of the tape gave the false impression that Zimmerman had said: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good or on drugs or something. He’s got his hand in his waistband. And he’s a black male.”

NBC News brass reportedly interviewed more than half a dozen staffers during its internal investigation, and at least three employees were let go. They determined that a “seasoned” producer was to blame for the clip and news executives did not know the 911 call had been misleadingly edited until reports about it surfaced days later.

    Bravo. A big lawsuit or two is the only way to rein in the MSM.

    Go! George, go! Kick their @ss so hard, NBC will need a bailout from dear leader to stay in business. Is there any way to provide financial assistance to be sure
    George Zimmerman has the best legal team available for this endeavor?

    Several weeks ago, I heard one of the legal beagles on FOX speak about the possibility of Zimmerman suing NBC because of the editing job they did on that tape and she said that because he is a public figure, if he sues he probably won’t win. That irritated me because the man did not ask to become a public figure. His being involved in a situation that ended in a death cast him into the legal system; the propagandists disguising as media cast him into the public sphere. I am glad to hear that he is suing. I hope he cleans the bastards out!!

      Unfortunately, another condition of a successful suit for damages, is proving you were indeed damaged. In his case, that would probably have to be in the form of a conviction. The suit won’t be possible until that sad eventuality, if it occurs.
