But apparently it backfired when somebody noticed what they were trying to do (h/t Bill Quick):
The segment in question was shown on the “Today” show on March 27. It included audio of Mr. Zimmerman saying, “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.”
Except, that wasn’t what Zimmerman said. At least not before the race baiting, violence-inciting, defaming ass-wagons at NBC started creatively editing the audio.
But Mr. Zimmerman’s comments had been taken grossly out of context by NBC. On the phone with a 911 dispatcher, he actually said of Mr. Martin, “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.” Then the dispatcher asked, “O.K., and this guy — is he white, black or Hispanic?” Only then did Mr. Zimmerman say, “He looks black.”
Oopsie. Of course, the original audio would only have portrayed Zimmerman as a guy answering a dispatcher’s question, and that wouldn’t help Der Fubar Ogabe rustle up the race war he needs before the election, so the ProgNazi Goebbelses at NBC swiftly edited it to be more “helpful to the cause.”
Inside NBC, there was shock that the segment had been broadcast.
“Shock” that somehow didn’t materialize until somebody noticed what Der Volkischer NBC Beobachter was up to. Yeah right. Pull the other one.
On April 4, the network news division said in a statement that it deeply regretted the “error made in the production process.”
“We will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future and apologize to our viewers,” the network said.
Translation: “We’ll be careful and try to hide our propaganda efforts on behalf of Der Fubar better in the future.”
Somebody has allegedly been fired as a result but, oddly, neither he/she, nor anybody else within NBC claiming to have knowledge of anything are identified, so you can take that as you will.
Our hope is that Zimmerman’s lawyers have big, fat, shit-eating grins on their faces right now as they type out page after page of suits against NBC and all of the other NSDWP Enemy Media outlets with a hand in this concentrated defamation campaign.
And as we’ve said before to any and all trying to build a race war-inciting mountain out of this mole hill: Any damages to anybody’s person(s) or property are entirely your fault and you will be held accountable, one way or another.
All over this country there are trees missing their strange fruits.
