NBC Apologizes for Misleading edit of Zimmerman’s 911 Call

NBC has come forward and apologized for running an edited version of the taped conversation of the 911 call by Zimmerman. The edited version that was aired on the Today show came out as Zimmerman saying, "This guy looks like he's up to no good ... he looks black."

However, the actual words, according in the call were, "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." And then the 911 official asks, "OK, and this guy - is he black, white or Hispanic?" To which Zimmerman replied, "He looks black."

Now, it may have been innocent editing but it didn’t come out as such at all. There was a lot of negative bounce back and it created quite a furor. NBC promised to investigate and it seems they did, because, they have come out and accepted their mistake and apologized.

Their statement says, "During our investigation, it became evident that there was an error made in the production process that we deeply regret."

"We will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future and apologize to viewers."
