A recent news story featured the firing of an NBC producer for “selective” editing of the now famous George Zimmerman phone call to Sanford Florida police despatch. The tape was edited to have Zimmerman saying, without prompting that Trayvon Martin looks “black.” In actuality, he was asked for the race of the victim and did not initially volunteer it. The producer is never named.
Check out the video and article HERE.
Then go to my article, How CBS Screwed Orville Nix and you’ll see that selective editing is nothing new and has been done for years by the mainstream media to manipulate the news and hence, the public’s perception of events. In the case of Orville Nix, he is a witness to shots being fired from the grassy knoll and CBS edited his response to have him saying the shots came from the School Book Depository Building.
I also document in that piece the same thing was done to Jim Garrison when interviewed for the Speak Up America TV program in the 1980’s. Here the tape is edited so Garrison is saying there are 32 shooters in Dealey plaza. He didn’t originally. He sated he believed there were 32 conspirators involved but only six shooters. The Executive Producer for that show, George Schlatter should have been fired as well but unfortunately was not.
Thanks Mr. Schlatter for giving the word your version of journalist ethics. Did you get your education in the Reich Propaganda Ministry? If so, you were taught well.
