This should be a criminal investigation not an internal investigation. NBC to do ‘internal investigation’ on Zimmerman segment - Erik Wemple - The Washington Post As exposed by Fox News and media watchdog site NewsBusters, the Today segment took this approach to a key part of the dispatcher call: Zimmerman: This guy looks like hes up to no good. He looks black. Heres how the actual conversation went down: Zimmerman: This guy looks like hes up to no good. Or hes on drugs or something. Its raining and hes just walking around, looking about. Dispatcher: OK, and this guy is he black, white or Hispanic? Zimmerman: He looks black. And its a falsehood with repercussions. Much of the public discussion over the past week has settled on how conflicting facts and interpretations call into question whether Zimmerman acted justifiably or criminally. Thats a process thatll continue. But one set of facts in the is ironclad, and thats the back-and-forth between Zimmerman and the dispatcher. To portray that exchange in a way that wrongs Zimmerman is high editorial malpractice well worthy of the investigation that NBC is now mounting.
