George Zimmerman to Sue NBC for Misleading Tape Edit
George Zimmerman intends to sue NBC for their misleading editing of audio tape of his 911 call the night Florida teen Trayvon Martin was shot and killed.
NBC fired a "seasoned" producer and two other employees after an internal investigation. It's being reported that "Zimmerman’s attorneys are ... naming news president Steve Capus and correspondent Ron Allen, who was the reporter on the scene for the broadcast on “Today” on March 27." Indications are that the NBC has informed employees involved of the suit, instructing them to not comment to the media.
The misleading edit made it appear as though the fact that Martin was black was somehow significant to Zimmerman, when in fact, he only mentioned it in response to a question from the 911 dispatcher.
NBC is not commenting on the suit at this time.
