NBC Fires a Producer Who Was Responsible for Gross Mis-Editing of the George Zimmerman 911 Tape

According to The New York Times (thanks to InstaPundit for the pointer),

NBC News has fired a producer who was involved in the production of a misleading segment about the Trayvon Martin case in Florida.

The Today show segment had Zimmerman saying,

This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

Here’s what appears to be the actual 911 transcript:

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.
