…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
Whether it is “our” ABC, or their NBC, they all seem to be credit to their profession and to their Goebbels/KGB training.
NBC has issued a statement:
During our investigation it became evident that there was an error made in the production process that we deeply regret. We will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future and apologize to our viewers.
That apology addresses the “Today” show’s failure to abridge accurately the conversation between Zimmerman and the dispatcher in this high-profile case. This is how the program portrayed a segment of that conversation:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.
And here is how it actually went down:
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.
Plenty for Finkelsteins of America to enquire and pontificate about – oops, only joking. The Left is always right. And “our” Australian Broadcasting Commission would not bother with apology, even that feeble. For them, this kind of deceptive reporting is de riguer.
