US MSM edits Zimmerman's call to 911 *gasp*

As we have all seen, the msm (and POTUS, Spike Lee, et al) are all determined to flame the fires of their outrage about the racist 'murder' of a young black boy.

However, already whispers of 'all is not as it seems' are being heard, now even from as far away as Europe. From the European Union Times come this:

US News Media edits Zimmerman’s phone call to 911

NBC appears to have edited an excerpt of a phone call made by Trayvon Martin’s killer to portray him as a racist. The edited George Zimmerman says he thinks Martin is ‘up to no good’ just because he was black – but that’s not what he really said.

On Tuesday, NBC’s Today Show hosted by Ron Allen ran a segment of a phone conversation Zimmerman had with police shortly before killing Martin, as reported by Fox’s Hannity Show. NBC’s version of the phone call allegedly had Zimmerman say the following about Martin: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.”

But in reality the two sentences were separated by a question the 911 dispatcher asked. The original phone call transcript ran like this:

Zimmerman: “We’ve had some break-ins in my neighborhood and there’s a real suspicious guy. It’s Retreat View Circle. The best address I can give you is 111 Retreat View Circle. 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.”

911 Dispatcher: “Okay. And this guy, is he white black or Hispanic?”

Zimmerman: “He looks black.”

If one compares the NBC version with the original transcript, it appears the channel jettisoned Zimmerman’s real explanation on why he thought Martin looked suspicious, and also got rid of the dispatcher’s question.

Outrage from the black community has continued to intensify each day Zimmerman is not arrested, who early on was represented as a racist white male trigger happy self-appointed community watchman. Zimmerman’s family has been quick to emphasize his Hispanic roots to quell any racial accusations (as if only whites can be racist) that may have led to the shooting.

There is other evidence to show that the media is trying to portray this case as an archetypical hero-and-villain battle. The photos of Martin and Zimmerman that the media uses are actually dated and create a wrong impression of how both men looked at the time of their encounter. Martin’s picture, in which he appears to be an innocuous-looking smiling teenager, was taken 5 years ago. At the time of his death, Martin was a 6’3″ tall, 150 to 160 lbs, tattooed and with gold teeth, who had been suspended from his school for carrying marijuana....

There is much more, with current picture of the @no_limit_nigga - of who Obama says could be his son - plus academics weighing in on the phenonenom running amok within the msm. Go read it all here, and yes, prepare to be shocked at the agenda driving the outrage. Well okay, not really...
