I had no intention of blogging the smallest squeak about the Trayvon Martin story. I mostly avoid political posts these days because I'm weary of writing variations on subjects I've already examined many times. But today I take time out from my time out, because this -- while it has been posted elsewhere -- must be given the widest possible circulation.
Lawrence Auster outlines the facts:
When NBC News played the audio of the 911 call George Zimmerman made prior to the confrontation that resulted in the death Travyon Martin, this is what they played:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he's up to no good. He looks black. ...
But the audio played by NBC, though it seemed like "fact" (because it was an audio, and isn't audio true?) was false. Here is the transcript of the actual audio of the 911 call:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he's up to no good. Or he's on drugs or something. It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about.
Dispatcher: OK, and this guy--is he black, white or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.
Got it? If this is true -- nobody seems to have denied it -- NBC deliberately edited the recording to make it sound as though Zimmerman believed Martin was up to no good solely because of his race.
The Left-controlled news media have still further debased themselves. This outrage goes leagues beyond their typical slanted news, selective reporting, and lack of fact checking:
A major network has falsified evidence to accord with its anti-white agenda. That's right, NBC forged a recording.
Stalinist-type mainstream media are now a fact of American life.
Any further comment is superfluous.
