NBC News has fired the producer it says was responsible for creating the deceptive audio recording of George Zimmerman communicating with a 9-1-1 operator, according to the New York Times.
The network is still refusing to release the name of the producer, although according to Times reporter Brian Stelter, the producer is based in Miami and has worked there for a number of years. According to Stelter's network sources, NBC is still insisting the deceptive edit was not done deliberatiely. The network has refused to say how exactly someone could accidentally have edited the tape to make Zimmerman appear to be racially motivated:
NBC News has fired a producer who was involved in the production of a misleading segment about the Trayvon Martin case in Florida.
The person was fired on Thursday, according to two people with direct knowledge of the disciplinary action who declined to be identified discussing internal company matters. They also declined to name the fired producer. A spokeswoman for NBC News declined to comment.
The action came in the wake of an internal investigation by NBC News into the production of the segment, which strung together audio clips in such a way that made George Zimmerman’s shooting of Mr. Martin sound racially motivated. Ever since the Feb. 26 shooting, there has been a continuing debate about whether race was a factor in the incident.
The segment in question was shown on the “Today” show on March 27. It included audio of Mr. Zimmerman saying, “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.”
But Mr. Zimmerman’s comments had been taken grossly out of context by NBC. [...]
The editing of the segment was initially noticed by NewsBusters, an arm of the Media Research Center, a conservative media monitoring group. On March 31, NBC told The Washington Post that it would investigate. [...]
The people with direct knowledge of the firing characterized the misleading edit as a mistake, not a purposeful act.

Why isn't the name of the producer being released? The left had/has no problem identifying Zimmerman as a "racist", why not out a true racist if that's what the left claims to care about so much.
Oh, that's right... Sorry..musta bumped my head for a second..there I go, thinking logically again.Yes..this camera is heavy.
No...you can't be on TV.
Look kid, go bother the reporter...I'm busy!!!

Without a name, this is just NBC's word, and we know that that is worth.

This is not the first time NBC has stepped in it, intentionally, and attempted to ruin a company or a persons life. Remember back in 1992 they blew up a GM truck but blamed GM. GM discovered that NBC rigged it and sued. So NBC settled the same week. Or how about back to the Atlanta Olympics pipe bomb explosion? Then recall what these clowns did to Richard Jewell (Richard Jewell v. NBC).
Or how about the edited Rodney King video which was played over and over which ultimately led to the L.A. Riots. The Simi Valley jury saw the unedited video of the ''beating'' and acquitted the police. Why? Because the unedited version showed King being very combative and uncooperative. And the behavior justified the increased police force. On the other hand the edited ''beating'' showed him to be some kind of senseless victim and the cops seemingly out of control for no good reason.
Come on folks, you know how this works. Remember Brian Williams talking with his old pals Dan Blather, Peter Lemmings, and Tom Brokejaw about "shaping the news" business? How can you fire a "good" employ who was simply diligent about promoting the NBC agenda? Hate and race baiting all in one edited tape? This guy was good. This is a resume enhancer. He will be quietly rehired, probably with a raise and a bonus. I understand Current TV has an opening. Or perhaps he could teach "media communications" at an Ivy League school somewhere.
Meanwhile Zimmerman hides for his very life until the time of trial. This is the lefts real Amerika. Look to the leader of this country for a clue.

This is the perfect scape goat----a nonexistent scape goat. I'll bet it took a while for one of those geniuses to thin of this scam.
Do you think they'd withhold the name of a conservative to protect him or her? Don't think so.
