NBC and ABC's race baiting Journalism EXPOSED Part 1
Over the past few weeks, the blog has experienced a very sharp increase in visits and page views. I expect it has mostly to do with the media created sensation over the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman shooting. I wanted to talk about how ABC and NBC News are now under intense scrutiny over their broadcasting of heavily edited footage regarding George Zimmerman. Since some of you may be new to this blog, I am going to make this story a two part er. The first part is to bring you up to speed in demonstrating how the media is racially obsessed with trying to paint conservatives and Republicans as racists. In the second part I will focus more on the antics of NBC News in their selective editing of the George Zimmerman 911 tape along with ABC News showing the non High Definition video of George Zimmerman and claiming that Zimmerman didn't have any injuries to the back of his head nor to his nose.
Back in April of 2006, the broadcast news magazine Dateline decided to try and create a news story about anti Muslim Nascar fans. Since Nascar fans tend to be more aligned with Republicans and consider themselves conservatives, Dateline wanted to try and expose these fans as being "bigots, racists and anti Muslim. Dateline sent Muslim-looking men to a Martinsville Virgina race, along with a camera crew to film fans " reactions". Dateline claimed that they were going to go to different locations around the country to gauge anti Muslim behavior and that they weren't specifically targeting Nascar fans. Of course they were lying. This is an illustration of when the media doesn't have a story to fit their narrative of conservatives and race, they just try to "create the story". The next example is one of my favorites, because the evidence against MSNBC was so obvious in their race baiting and manipulation disgusied as journalism. During the health care debates in 2009, Obama visted Arizona to try and boost support for the passing of Obamacare. MSNBC reported that white people showed up at the rally with guns and that the reason they did so was, because Obama was the first black president. Watch the video of how the camera films the man with the AK55 rifle and the pistol, then listen to how Contessa Brewer and her colleagues discribe him and "people like him".
There was only just one tiny, microscopic problem in their reporting of the "white guy". I'll let you all discover what that was.
Oh, I forgot to mention. MSNBC is the sister network of NBC. Continuing the stroll down the road of racial editing journalism, the next stop is at Ed Schultz also of MSNBC. Back in August of last year, Ed Schultz purposely edited the comments of a speech Rick Perry gave in Iowa. Rick Perry mad a reference to the "big black cloud of debt" the nation is under. Ed didn't see it that way or should I say he didn't let the full clip play in order for him to have to have commented on what Perry really said. It was nice watching Ed Schultz have to eat crow, because he got caught dead to rights. He knew full well that he edited Perry's speech to purposely leave off the debt part in order to try and brand Governor Perry as a racist. Do you all see a pattern forming with all of this? There is a reason why I harp on and on and on about not trusting the national media. I remember watching Andrea Mitchell of NBC and MSBNC reporting at a Sarah Palin Going Rouge book signing saying that the people standing in line "were mostly white" like what that have to do with anything I'm not sure. With all that said, it doesn't surprise me at all that NBC News edited the Zimmerman 911 call and took out what the 911 dispatcher said with the intent to try and paint George Zimmerman as a racist. It's just another example in a long line of shameful race manipulating tactics passed off as "journalism" by NBC News and the national media in general.
