Here is what NBC aired and represented as the 911 recording: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.”
Here is what the recorded 911 call actually said:
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.Quite a difference. Why would they do this? Sensationalism? This was broadcast on the Today Show, not on MSNBC, by purported journalists.
Shame on NBC. The results of this investigation should prove of interest.
