NBC to do ‘internal investigation’ on Zimmerman segment


via NBC to do ‘internal investigation’ on Zimmerman segment – Erik Wemple – The Washington Post.

“The difference between what “Today” put on its air and the actual tape? Complete: In the “Today” version, Zimmerman volunteered that this person “looks black,” a sequence of events that would more readily paint Zimmerman as a racial profiler. In reality’s version, Zimmerman simply answered a question about the race of the person whom he was reporting to the police. Nothing prejudicial at all in responding to such an inquiry.”

Doe Media Matters know this?
