NBC Investigating Its Deceptive Editing of Zimmerman 911 Tape

Clipped:

As exposed by Fox News and media watchdog site NewsBusters, the “Today” segment took this approach to a key part of the dispatcher call:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

Here’s how the actual conversation 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.

So, they've made a public statement that they're trying to find out how this happened.

They could just ask me. Or you. But those are bad options as we'd tell them what actually happened. And they don't want that. They just want it noted that, Gee Willickers, they're doing their level best to solve this mystery.

Remember all the stories claiming George Zimmerman was 220 pounds? Or "at least 240 pounds?" Among the many narratives being pushed here was that the 6'2" Trayvon Martin was an Emo Waif and the 5'7" Zimmerman was a brutish hulk.

Well, Just One Minute has caught the NYT in a rare slip-up, caught red-handed committing actual journalism. According to their newest report, Zimmerman is not 220 or 240 pounds, but... 170.
