NBC Calls Its Deliberate, Frame-Up Editing of George Zimmerman an "Error;" Washington Post Then Calls It A "Screw-Up"

Let's compare this to the O'Keefe Acorn tapes.

It has been routinely stated by the media, as if a fact, that the Acorn tapes were "deceptively edited." This is despite the fact that there was no deception, and no intent to deceive. (They are referring to the opening credits and interstitial shots of a ludicrously pimp-garbed O'Keefe, walking with a pimp-cane and stuff -- this is plainly comedy shot afterwards like a skit, not the Acorn tapes revelations.)

Now we have the media deliberately editing George Zimmerman to fit their "racist" narrative.

When NBC’s “Today” show aired George Zimmerman’s 911 call to police, here is what the audience heard:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

Wow. “Looks up to no good” followed by “He looks black” sounds like Zimmerman made a conclusion of “no good” based upon an observation of being “black.” That would lend credence to the racism angle.

The problem is the conversation was edited by NBC to look that way. Here is the unedited version:

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 the assertion “He looks black” was in direct response to a question about what color Treyvon appears to be. Zimmerman was right – he looks black. Zimmerman was not making any connection between skin color and being good or bad.

NBC's accounting of the facts, in its correction, is itself false. It was not an "error" to do this. It was done deliberately. NBC's "error" claim conjures images of a sound editor accidentally brushing a dial with his wrist as he reached for his coffee.

No, this was deliberately cooked, as so much of this story is.

The Washington Post, however, wisely refrains from following NBC in its "error" dishonesty.

They go so far as to brand it a "screw-up."

Oh: And NBC won't name the "error" prone editor, nor will it say if any punishment has attached to this error. And they do not apologize to George Zimmerman for defaming him.
