George Zimmerman sues NBC for Defamation

George Zimmerman

George Zimmerman has sued NBC for defamation, going back to the story they did where they selectively edited the recording of the 911 call.  NBC cut out when the dispatcher asked what race was the young man who Mr. Zimmerman was subscribing.  In doing so, it made it look like he volunteered the race himself, right after saying the individual was up to no good.  It gave a clear impression of racism that played into one of the major issues of the case.  NBC previously published a correction and apology, saying the edit was an error.  I am skeptical of their claim of an error. #standyourground
