I’m not a big George Zimmerman fan but I have to admit he may be on to something in his filing of a defamation lawsuit against network giants, NBC.
What would the world’s view be of Zimmerman had we all had the chance to hear the entire 911 tape from the get-go? NBC altered the tape to make him seem as though he voluntarily told the operator that Trayvon Martin was black. When the full tape was released, the operator asks Zimmerman to describe Martin’s race hence his answer.
Zimmerman accuses NBC of creating a “false and defamatory misimpression using the oldest form of yellow journalism: manipulating Zimmerman’s own words, splicing together disparate parts of the recording to create the illusion of statements that Zimmerman never actually made.” He Claims the network falsely made Zimmerman look like a “hostile racist.”
NBC falsely inserted the race card which did more than make a bad situation worse — all in the name of ratings — For that they should pay, both families.
