George Zimmerman May Sue NBC Over Edited 911 Tape for Defamation to Make Him Appear as a Racist in Shooting Death of Trayvon Martin
George Zimmerman, the “white” Hispanic who has been charged in the murder of Trayvon Martin may sue NBC for defamation of characterover the edited and misleading 911 audio tape that made him appear to be a racist. NBC initially released the doctored 911 tape that depicted George Zimmerman as a racist as they intentionally deleted certain words and phrases to misrepresent Zimmerman. In the NBC edited audio, Zimmerman says of Trayvon, “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.” The question will always remain why? Who has ever heard of a media outlet editing a 911 tape except for profanity? NBC has fired multiple individuals in the wake of this scandal, calling the edited tape a mistake.
