"George Zimmerman sues NBC for defamation"
The one inconvenient fact that DUmmies and other liberals are reluctant to confront about the Zimmerman case is that NBC News FRAUDULENTLY edited Zimmerman's 911 tape to make him sound like a racist. As a result, Zimmerman is now suing them for defamation. There is no doubt that he will win but the only question is how much will he get. $10 million? $20 million? More? I just hope any settlement (and NBC News will be anxious to settle OUT of court) includes a stipulation that Brian Williams MUST issue an apology to Zimmerman at the top of his news show. Even better, the hosts of all NBC and MSNBC news and commentary shows issue an on-air apology to Zimmerman. That would include in addition to Williams, Chris Matthews, David Gregory, Rachel Madcow, Big Ed, and Al "Tawana Brawley" Sharpton. Right now the DUmmies are having difficulty digesting the lawsuit as you can see in their THREAD, "George Zimmerman sues NBC for defamation." Since there are way too many rational posts on that thread, I suspect an invasion by LOUSY FREEPER TROLLS so no Kewpie Doll giveaways on this one. So let us now watch the DUmmies ponder millions in NBC bucks flowing George Zimmerman's way in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, hoping that Brian Williams will be forced to eat crow on the air, is in the [brackets]:
George Zimmerman sued NBC Thursday, alleging the network defamed him when it edited the recording of his 911 call to police about Trayvon Martin, in order to make him sound like a “racist and predatory villain” for the sake of ratings.
“NBC News saw the death of Trayvon Martin not as a tragedy but as an opportunity to increase ratings, and so set about to create the myth that George Zimmerman was a racist and predatory villain,” Zimmerman alleged in the complaint, filed Thursday in Seminole County, near Orlando.
[That suit was filed last December but now that Zimmerman has been found NOT GUILTY, it is open season on the NBC News treasury. We now watch the DUmmie reaction...]
He's got a solid case.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
He should get no money from it.
[Yes, he should meekly allow NBC News to portray him as a racist and go straight to jail based on the "facts" of that editied 911 tape.]
The tape was edited to elicit maximum outrage and draw ratings. What part of that is not legitimate?
[Your logic is too obvious so no Kewpie Doll for you, LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
Zimmerman is an evil racist and must be loudly proclaimed so. The fact that he could make money off of murder is sickening.
Absolutely. NBC News has the right to fraudulently edit Zimmerman's 911 tape in order to falsely crucify him as a racist.]
We can always hope they get him on a federal charge.
[WOO HOO! Nail him on double jeopardy!]
The FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) already conducted an investigation last year and found no racial motivations or civil rights "violations."
[Enough already with these inconvenient facts!!!]
Federal hate crime laws should apply And Monday morning, an indictment will be done for GZ on hate crimes. That is the one with the needle.
[It's already Tuesday afternoon. Oops! Back to square one.]
They are going to re-investigate the entire thing from A-Z and then have more than adequate evidence to charge Mr. Zimmerman for capital murder with enhancement of hate crimes. Guilty verdict means death sentence. Murder is murder, and the idiots of the jury needs to realize that.
[If at first you don't succeed then try him again, i.e. double jeopardy him.]
you can't retry him for murder
[Thank you for that input, Captain Obvious.]
He deserves to be put down. Everywhere. Make him a red-headed stepchild that no-one wants to deal with. F*ck Zimmerman, and he ought to be in prison, rotting for the next 30 years. GZ got away with it because of prosecutorial misconduct.
[Their misconduct started with bringing Zimmerman to trial in the first place.]
Probably a good case against CNN for broadcasting his SSN.
[More $$Bucks for Zimmerman.]
They edited the phone call. "Doctoring" means they added to or otherwise altered the content.
[Sigh! Would one of you LFTs mind enlightening this DUmmie?]
Editing is altering. NBC has already admitted fault, apologized and terminated the employees responsible, he's got a good civil case here.
I don't know where the trial will be.
[Probably no trial. NBC will want to settle out of court to spare themselves yet more embarrassment.]
They edited out the part where the dispatcher asked him what race the person looked but left in his response. That's a pretty slanted thing, even if I think he's guilty.
is there a link to the edited audio?
[A DUmmie still living in ignorance of what is already widely known.]
Just because the dumb jury didn't find him guilty, doesn't mean he's not. Besides, he might not be around long enough to collect.
[Is that a death thread, DUmmie Politicalboi? I repeat, DUmmie Polticalboi.]
FBI will be ordered to reinvestigate thoroughly. And then George Zimmerman will have to be indicted again, arraigned in a federal court and ordered to stand trial. Then this time, the 12 members of the jury will definetely find him guilty and sentence him to death.
[Double Jeopardy him to death!]
This action will never see a courtroom. NBC will settle, as will CNN when Zimmerman sues them.
[It will cost both news organizations big bucks to keep this from going to court.]
