    This could be any one of us. When will the media, race baiters, CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, and hell the PRESIDENT be held accountable?

    Too bad we can't strap all the brainwashed sheeple into chairs with their eyelids forced open ( CLOCKWORK ORANGE style!) and make them watch this. MLK would roll over in his grave to see the first BLACK President talking about car doors clicking and being watched by store clerks. Why oh why couldn't the first Black President have been a conservative? This P.O.S. is setting race relations back to Rodney King or worse. As the video said, if T.M. wasn't treated with" P.C. understanding" BS during his earlier problems, he might be alive today.

    NBC News producer fired over editing of George*Zimmerman 911 call* - NY Daily News

    " An NBC News producer has been fired after a misleading report on the Trayvon Martin case suggested that shooter George Zimmerman was racially motivated.

    The edited audio clip from a 911 call implied that Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer in Sanford, Fla., shot Martin because he was black.

    "This guy looks like he's up to no good. He looks black," according to the clip that aired March 27 on the “Today” show.

    A transcript of the actual recording of the call between Zimmerman and the 911 dispatcher shows the version that was aired was significantly modified.

    George 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."

    911 dispatcher: "O.K., and this guy - is he white, black or Hispanic?"

    George Zimmerman: "He looks black."

    After critics blasted the segment as misleading, NBC News launched an internal investigation into how the recording was edited, and concluded on April 3 that there had been a mistake.

    "During our investigation it became evident that there was an error made in the production process that we deeply regret," NBC News said in a statement. "We will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future and apologize to our viewers."

    The unnamed producer, who has been described as experienced, was fired on Thursday. His dismissal was first reported Friday evening by The New York Times, which cited two people familiar with the matter.

    NBC News declined to comment about the firing."

    The only thing they're sorry about is getting caught. I highly doubt they've learned from this experience.

    And this guy was fired also.

    Jeff Burnside, NBC Miami WTVJ Reporter, Fired Over Edited George Zimmerman 911 Call



    "A veteran NBC Miami reporter has been fired in the ongoing probe over an edited "Today" show clip of George Zimmerman's 911 call, placed moments before Zimmerman shot unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.

    Jeff Burnside was dismissed from network-owned NBC Miami (WTVJ) over a similarly edited clip on Friday, as first reported by South Florida news blog SFLTV.

    According to the Miami Herald, two unidentified employees were also disciplined.

    NBC Miami said in an "edit explanation" posted Wednesday evening that it broadcast the edited call March 19, confirming it ran several days before the controversial "Today" clip -- which according to Poynter's MediaWire blog was not generated at NBC Miami but at NBC's Southeastern headquarters, which are also in Miami.

    “As anybody in the news business knows, something that seems very clear is often very, very complicated,” Burnside told Mediawire when reached by phone on Wednesday.

    NBC launched its internal investigation over the "Today" show segment after admitting an "error...that we deeply regret." Reports the Associated Press:

    NBC's "Today" show first aired the edited version of Zimmerman's call on March 27. The recording viewers heard was trimmed to suggest that Zimmerman volunteered to police, with no prompting, that Martin was black: "This guy looks like he's up to no good. He looks black."

    But the portion of the tape that was deleted had the 911 dispatcher asking Zimmerman if the person who had raised his suspicion was "black, white or Hispanic," to which Zimmerman responded, "He looks black."

    NBC Miami said in its statement that the Burnside segment also omitted the dispatcher's question.

    Earlier this month NBC fired a producer over the "Today" broadcast, which fanned some pundits' accusations that media outlets rushed to judgment in the case before all information was available.

    According to the SFLTV report, an insider said several employees at NBC Miami and NBC news including an editor or photographer were questioned before the network concluded Burnside was ultimately responsible for the misleading edits on NBC Miami's clip and fired him on Friday.

    Burnside filed at least 9 stories on the Martin case for NBC Miami, including an interview with activist Rev. Al Sharpton (apparently since removed) and at least one live report from Sanford where the 17-year-old Martin was shot walking through the gated neighborhood of his father's girlfriend.

    Biographies published online note Burnside, who has won several regional Emmy awards and is widely respected for his coverage of environmental issues, began working for NBC Miami in 1999."

    Angela Corey should be prosecuted for her submissions that intentionally excluded evidence which initiated the trial.

    Yep, shes a nice'un.

    State Attorney Angela Corey fires information technology director who raised concerns in Trayvon Martin case | jacksonville.com

    "...He said he had acted in good faith about “genuine concerns.” He said he had been proud to work at the State Attorney’s Office and feared the letter would cripple his chances at finding another job to support his family, including a 4-month-old son.

    “I don’t have any regrets,” he said, “but I am terrified about the future and what that will end up being.”

    His attorney Wesley White — who resigned from the State Attorney’s Office in December and is a critic of Corey — said the firing was aimed at sending a message to office employees “that if they feel like there is wrongdoing,” they should not disclose it or seek legal guidance from a private attorney.

    “If they do speak to an attorney, then they are dead,” he said. “The State Attorney’s Office will do whatever is necessary to not only terminate them, but destroy their reputations in the process.”..."

    Probably why the good cops do not stand up and hold the bad cops accountable. They would get fired if they did.

    100% typical of the left. Learning is not part of their agenda.

    I received this in an email thread this morning:
    If Zimmerman wanted to be left alone by Obama and Holder, he should have killed a US Ambassador instead.
