Another Misleading MSM George Zimmerman 9-11 Call Edit Costs a NBC News Employee Her Job Reporting on the Trayvon Martin Death


EDITGATE … Lilia Luciano, a Miami-based NBC News correspondent is the latest to lose her job in the NBC MSM George Zimmerman 911 call editing scandal in the covering of the death of Trayvon Martin. Yet more selective editing to shape the story for their own narrative.

Lilia Luciano, a Miami-based NBC News correspondent, is no longer working for the network, TVNewser has learned.

Luciano last reported for NBC News March 31. Until that point, she had been reporting mainly on the Trayvon Martin story. Sources tell TVNewser Luciano’s dismissal came after an investigation which also led to the firing of a seasoned NBC News producer over a similar, misleading edit. In a story for the “Today” show on March 20, Luciano used part of the George Zimmerman 911 call in which an entire phrase (italicized below) was taken from a later part of the conversation:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good or on drugs or something. He’s got his hand in his waistband. And he’s a black male.
Dispatcher: Are you following him?
Zimmerman: Yeah.
Dispatcher: Okay, we don’t need you to do that.

As stated by Brent Bozell does any one think that the three low level firings by NBC are an acceptable answer to what NBC did in out right falsely reporting on this case and purposely editing to misrepresent the facts?

NBC has now fired three people from two different offices over at least two different edits of George Zimmerman’s now infamous 9-1-1 call prior to the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Both edits were clearly designed to portray Zimmerman as a racist while raising tensions in an already volatile situation.  This latest firing from NBC once again goes unexplained.  NBC’s actions vindicate the Media Research Center’s original point that NBC’s two-sentence (non)apology was an insult, and that this is a network out of control.

The truth has been withheld from NBC’s own viewers now for more than one month.  Do the network executives at NBC think that this is acceptable? What about the board and shareholders of Comcast?  Is it acceptable for a news organization to consciously and constantly lie to its viewers?

      It’s a common thing these days, all these computerized “edits” and altering done in the Control Rooms to audio/visual tapes so that the Network can sensationalize and produce more interesting ratings.

      Does anyone truly even report the real News anymore? …Been asking this for awhile.

      Regardless of what your belief is in the Martin/Zimmmerman Case- at some point it is assumed a Jury will be viewing and listening to some of this evidence. The fact that it was manipulated and then released to the general public in this day and age of instant electronic communication, makes for further fodder for Zimmerman’s Defense Attorneys.

      Can Zimmerman really get a fair trial? The “Stand Your Ground” Law in Florida needs to be looked at closely, and this stuff, along with the divisive Race Baiters fanning the flames will not help prove or disprove the theory that Zimmerman shot and killed another human in self-defense. These things will only help to further distort the facts and hide the truth, of which currently-only 2 people were aware of. One of those is dead and not able to defend himself.

      Deliberate incorrect reporting of the news is not something new. It has been happening since the mid 1950′s. Beginning with the newspapers and then spilling over to radio and Television.

      Video and audio “editing” can completely change the meaning of a story. Propaganda is easy to produce in todays media.

      Thank GOD for the internet and its development as a more reliable source of news.

      Internet as a more reliable news source?????
      SM: You would be surprised where the real investigative journalism is coming from these days. Of course using the Internet as a reliable news sources means using reliable internet sources as a news source.

      The MSM has become far too liberal and in the tank for their pet ideologies.
