NBC and ABC's race baiting Journalism EXPOSED Part 2
NBC's intent was to clearly tar and feather George Zimmerman as being a racist who seen all blacks as suspicious and up to no good. For them to brand Zimmerman as a racist, they couldn't have the audio in the clip of the 911 dispatcher ASKING ZIMMERMAN what race was the person he spotted. As I said in part one, race and selective media editing seems to go hand and hand with the national media. Since they've been caught red handed, NBC has issued an "apology" . They claim they have launched an internal investigation in to the matter. That's damage control talk for they hope they can stall long enough in hoping people just forget about what they did. There was no reason for them to edit the 911 tape. I can see if the 911 audio tape was several minutes in length, and they needed to cut it down for the sake of airing it in the Today Show's segment, but that wasn't the case. The original unedited version was no more then 15 seconds long. NBC's credibility is now starting to come into question. As for ABC News, they originally broadcasted the surveillance video from the Sanford Police station, and they claimed that George Zimmerman had no apparent gashes on the back of his head nor showed any evidence of having a broken or bloody nose. The video at the time was seen as being some sort of a gamer changer in favor of Zimmerman possibly being guilty. The video has since been cleared up and significantly enhanced for ABC by Forensic Protection Inc,
Well, the new quality enhanced video that ABC aired shows that Zimmerman did have a gash on the back of his head, when he arrived at the Sanford Police Station. I will have to cut ABC a little slack but not much in this case. They aired the non enhanced video and by them making the claim stating that Zimmerman didn't have any apparent injuries to the back of head, it only ginned up the supporters of Trayvon Martin into believing that Zimmerman lied and that there was some sort of Sanford Police cover up. ABC News did to their credit aired the enhanced version of the surveillance video, and they made the correction on air. In ABC's case, it's hard to tell whether this was a case of activist journalism or just ABC wanting to be first in breaking what they thought was a game changing piece of evidence. In their case, ABC didn't tamper with or edit footage unlike with what NBC did with the Zimmerman 911 call. Either way, Americans are becoming more and more fed up with the media's bias. Much of the public's negative opinion of George Zimmerman is based off of how the media has portrayed him. I simply want all the facts to come out in this. The media simply needs to report the facts, re verify the facts. The public only wants what Joe Friday use to say in Dragnet, just the facts.
