George Zimmerman Sues NBC Over Racist Portrayal

December 7, 2012 at 8:20 am


Good! Take the race baiting bastards to the cleaners.

(Washington Post) –Lawyers for George Zimmerman filed suit today against NBC Universal Media over a well-publicized editing error that portrayed their client in racist terms in his pursuit of Trayvon Martin on a drizzly evening in February.

“NBC saw the death of Trayvon Martin not as a tragedy but as an opportunity to increase ratings, and so to set about the myth that George Zimmerman was a racist and predatory villain,” states the civil complaint in its opening salvo against NBC.

NBC’s editing of the 911 audiotape in the Martin case became a public fixation after the media-monitoring Web site NewsBusters.org noted editing oddities on a “Today” show broadcast March 27.

Here’s how NBC News portrayed the audiotape:

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

The full tape went like this:

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.

Zimmerman thus didn’t volunteer a racial profile of Martin; he was asked to provide it, a point that the lawsuit makes in colorful fashion: “NBC created this false and defamatory misimpression using the oldest form of yellow journalism: manipulating Zimmerman’s own words, splicing together disparate parts of the recording to create illusions of statements that Zimmerman never actually made.”

The suit against NBC alleges four other instances in which NBC-produced shows aired false and defamatory versions of the same events.

Brian Williams Eat Your ‘POTUS Finger Pointing’ Crow And Like It

February 5, 2012 at 11:35 pm

Juxtaposition fun and games at NBC’s Brian Williams expense.

Remember this?
NBC’s Brian Williams was outraged, at the very thought that Gov. Brewer would dare point her finger at the Anointed One.

7:00PM ET TEASE:
BRIAN WILLIAMS: Also, finger pointing. That photo everybody was talking about today. Who have you ever seen talking to the president like this and what was this all about?

7:06PM ET SEGMENT:
WILLIAMS: All of this takes us to the photo everybody’s been talking about today. The governor of Arizona with her finger in the face of the President of the United States. You don’t see that often or maybe ever.

Whoops! Guess who Bri? You.

Altogether now…

That’s a good lapdog.
Update: Governor Brewer tweets: “See, I’m an equal-opportunity pointer! Great seeing Sheriff Babeu today!! ”
See, I'm an equal-opportunity pointer! Great seeing Sher... on Twitpic

Pro-American and a sense of humor too. Obama could take a few lessons from Jan Brewer. Sheriff Babeu rocks too.
