Breaking: NBC Fires Producer Who Created False Zimmerman Audio

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.

    I wonder if Fox News will fire Sean Hannity for his deceptive editing, probably not, they probably gave him a raise

      Trayvon Martin was shot on Feb. 27th. The very next day, his father Tracy Martin did two tinghs; gave an interview to FoxOrlando along with his girlfriend, Brandy Green. Green made the claim that Trayvon was just sitting on the porch and a man came up and shot him. The other thing Tracy Martin did was contact his sister-in-law, Patricia Jones, atty., and she contacted Benjamin Crump (bottom feeding tort lawyer). Crump spoke with Tracy Martin on Feb. 29th and Crump took Martin on as a client on March 1st.Crump quickly organized his Scheme Team which included Raul Julison of Julison PR. Julison knew the ropes well when it came to spinning a narrative as he was the lead PR firm for the Ware case and also had worked on promoting the media reports for the Pigford scandal of reparations graft. So while Julison provided talking points for the media, especially ABC, Crump contacted his friend, Al Sharpton to take the story national of a white vigilante killing an innocent (14 year old looking) black boy who was a model child.Although the case was yet two weeks old, and still under investigation by the Sanford PD, Crump via Jackson started screaming how the Sanford PD was not doing their job and justice needed to be served. The prosecuting attorney had determined that with the facts at hand, there was not enough to get a conviction on George Zimmerman. (No prosecuting attorney wants to present a case only to have it a) thrown out by a grand jury b) lost in trial or c) overturned in appeals.)But that was not good enough for Crump who was seeing dollar signs. He knew that if no charges were brought against George Zimmerman resulting in Zimmerman’s arrest, according to Florida law there could be no wrongful death civil suits. The meme was put out by Crump, and his newly acquired client, Sybrina Fulton, that all they were looking for was not a conviction of Zimmerman, but a simple arrest. Bingo! Crump knew that once Zimmerman was arrested and booked, the civil suits could procede when the proper time came. Crump knew this well as he had already gained a $5 million out-of-court settlement on another case with the State of Florida through personal negotiations with former Florida Governor, Charlie Christ.Crump had the ball rolling; the media was all atwitter with the injustice of the killing of an innocent little boy, Trayvon Martin. Foundations were set up to benefit financially the Martin/Fulton duo of Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton. The Justice for Trayvon international tour was organized and all the usual suspects, Sharpton, Jackson, et al, were on board. The We Are Trayvon website was created, (begging for money, of course) with pictures of a 14 year old, and younger, Trayvon, describing George Zimmerman as a white vigilante with a 9mm gun. But slugs cannot stand the light of day, and people started digging into the history of Trayvon. His Facebook site showed a much different kid than is pictured on the family website. The narrative of the innocent little boy began to fall apart as his web activity (now purged) was screen captured. It showed a kid who was impressed with the gansta image and discussions about Purple Drank , a drug made from Arizona Iced Tea watermelon drink, Skittles and Robitussin cough syrup.Yet, none of this is really important to the issue (except in the respect to the lies told by Team Skittles); did George Zimmerman wrongfully murder Trayvon Martin? Or did George Zimmerman do exactly what he claimed from the beginning to have done, acted in a way that would end the threat to his life or extreme physical harm by having his head bashed against concrete?Reply
