    Sad day for NBC but at least it's a baby step toward media accountability.

    It's a CYA move. Funny how these "mistakes" never happen to liberals or their cadre of groups.

    NBC is still calling it a mistake begging the question: then why did you fire the guy?

    Oddly enough the New York Times and MSNBC also made the same "mistake" as NBC. What a crazy random happenstance. Ooo baby baby it's a wild world.

    It's not enough. NBC should be fined by the FCC and then sued by the Zimmerman family.

    It was Fox News' Hannity, among others, who goofed that story, not Breitbart. It was also a deeply political move somewhere up the latter in the government. You would otherwise have to be a world class fuck up to get fired from a government job.

    And not for nothing but Zimmerman should sue the NYT as well.

    Well...........if FAUX Nooze fired everyone who made false reports, they'd have nobody to report their version of the news.

    Okay then, that means that O'reilly, Hannity and all the other idiots at FAUX would be removed anyway.

    Remember when they showed different clips of a Beck rally and tried to say that it was all one tape when it clearly wasn't? That was willful manipulation as well.
