Zimmerman is suing NBC
Murder suspect George Zimmerman has sued media giant NBCUniversal for defamation, alleging the company and its reporters tried to create a "racial powder-keg" by manipulating a tape of Zimmerman's 911 call to authorities on the night of Trayvon Martin's death.
In the edited audio, Zimmerman is heard telling a police dispatcher that the 17-year-old Martin, who was visiting family members in Zimmerman's complex, "looks like he's up to no good. He looks black."
However, Zimmerman was responding to the dispatcher's question of whether Martin was "white, black or Hispanic."
I hope he wins. There is no defending the broadcast of that edited audio tape.
