THE ZIMMERMAN TELEGRAM: “NBC sued over Trayvon tape,” according to the New York Post:
We hear Zimmerman’s attorneys are about to file a complaint against NBC and its top executives, naming news president Steve Capus and correspondent Ron Allen, who was the reporter on the scene for the broadcast on “Today” on March 27. He also remained the reporter for the story on “NBC Nightly News.”
A source tells us, “The suit will be filed imminently against NBC and its news executives. The network’s legal department has put everybody in the news department involved with this incident on notice, telling them not to comment.”
Here’s PJTV’s take on how the edit was likely made, from back in April:
“And don’t accuse our staff of doctoring tape….they’re not doctoring tapes.”
