NBC Producer Edits Zimmerman 911 Tape To Fit His/Her Own Worldview?

In Yoda voice: “Strange this George Zimmerman case is.”

How so, Master Yoda?

Well, there’s the whole NBC thing—the doctored tape which misleadingly changed the crux of the Zimmerman 911 call. NBC has apologized and insiders offer this take of the “seasoned producer” who was involved:

The sources described the producer’s actions as a very bad mistake, but not deliberate.

How is it possible to change this, the actual part of the conversation in question

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.

Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?

Zimmerman: He looks black.

to this

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

without doing it with malice and forethought?

Short answer: you can’t. Still, this journalistic malfeasance has yet to approach the effect of the 2005 Newsweek ‘Koran desecration’ mis-story which resulted in at least 17 dead and over 100 injured.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
