Reuters – 7 hrs ago

(Reuters) - NBC News apologized on Tuesday for the way it edited a broadcast of a conversation between George Zimmerman and a police dispatcher before teenager Trayvon Martin was killed by Zimmerman.

Last week Fox News did a report in which it presented "before" and "after" versions of the call. NBC had broadcast the edited exchange on its flagship "Today" morning show.

NBC News launched an investigation after the Fox report.

"During our investigation it became evident that there was an error made in the production process that we deeply regret," NBC News

representative Lauren Kapp said in a statement on Tuesday, in response to a query by Reuters. "We will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future and apologize to our viewers."

The February 26 shooting death of 17-year-old Martin by Zimmerman, 28, a neighborhood watch captain who said he acted in self-defense, has drawn international attention. The incident occurred in Sanford, Florida.

The Fox News report can be viewed on the website of the News Corp unit.

The "Today" show's segment ran as:

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

The full conversation ran as:

"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."

NBC News is owned by NBC Universal, a unit of Comcast Corp.

"I want to take this opportunity to mention how thankful I am for an Obama re-election. The choice was clear. We cannot live in a country that treats homosexuals and women as second class citizens. Homosexuals deserve all of the rights and benefits of marriage that heterosexuals receive. Women deserve to be treated with respect and their salaries should not depend on their gender, but their quality of work. I am also thankful that the great, progressive state of California once again voted for the correct President. America is moving forward, and the direction is a positive one."

I heard the full conversation, honestly I had not heard the edited version. Zimmerman sounds like he's high.

This was not an error, this was a planned, coordinated attempt to mislead. What is to "regret"?

What fools would do such a thing given todays meida sources? You KNOW someone is going to thave the original, you KNOW someone is going to play it for the public.

While the internet does allow a bunch of meaningless hacks to draw conclusions and make statements with no evidence, it also provides a "check and balance" and any of them that get out of hand and try to report thier biased trash as "news"

Given what happened to Dan Rather in 2008, I would think they would have learned. But these agenda driven morons are so easy to "feed". I would not be surprised to learn, eventually that this was a set-up to embarrass the hoodies. It worked perfectly. No more vigils, no more news, no more congressional testimony, it just dropped off the face of the earth. What a bunch of baffoons
