NBC “Waiting to Explode” – Trayvon Martin edition [Darleen Click]

It was 1992 when Dateline NBC aired its “investigation” of General Motors pickup trucks. It was asserted that poor design of the fuel tank resulted in explosions when the trucks where impacted in accidents. Indeed, Dateline NBC aired dramatic footage of a pickup exploding into a fireball when t-boned.

NBC had rigged the whole thing, including remotely igniting the fuel tank.

It appears that NBC is again, manufacturing “evidence” in an attempt to ignite another kind of explosion

In an NBC segment featuring George Zimmerman’s 911 call on the night of the Trayvon Martin shooting, Zimmerman is heard saying: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.”

The full version, though, unfolds like this:

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.”
911 operator: “Okay. And this guy, is he white black or Hispanic?”
Zimmerman: “He looks black.”

NBC’s libel just throws fuel on a fire: Al Sharpton is calling for riots, though he euphemistically says “escalation”. A Georgia High school erupts in ugly violence in the name of Trayvon. Twitter refuses to delete the Kill Zimmerman account.

Not like NBC is alone in its making the news rather than reporting it. ABC ran grainy video of Zimmerman at the police station and declared “We don’t see blood or bruises!” Ooooo… smoking gun!

Please disregard that Zimmerman was treated by paramedics at the scene.

Sistertoldjah points out that when MSNBC’s Chris Matthews decided to run the tape on Hardball, yammering how the tape is “showing no damage to this man who claimed to have been brutally beaten,” Matthews is disappointed to find out that a closeup screencap does, indeed, show injury to the back of Zimmerman’s head.

These attempts by “News” media go beyond the usual (and inexcusable) oxymoronic advocacy journalism and into direct participation of making the news.

No one was killed over the GM truck hoax. Will apologies and shuffling of personnel be enough when dead bodies appear over the “No Justice No Peace” riots ignited by media malfeasance?

  1. Yes, the Obama media is really trying to keep this one alive. Most have seen through the bullshit for what it is.

    Because you can sling all the race baiting shit you like with your mouth, but pictures tell a thousand words and the pictures of what looks like a mexican and a black guy as perp and victim completely destroy their propaganda efforts towards a race war pitting blacks against whites.

    There’s going to be something big about the GOP hating on gays coming anytime now.

  2. This is kind of a must listen, and dovetails beautifully into Darleen’s post. The MSM/ 5th Column didn’t just lie for their agenda in this case, they straight up lynched an innocent, 18 year old, straight A Rutgers student.

    Kid got sentenced to a politically correct 15 years. Whatever happened in Florida, I hope Zimmerman’s attorneys are paying attention to the Dharun Ravi case.

    As it’s an Adam Coralla podcast, it’s also quite entertaining.*

    *Naughty language warning if you have youngsters running in and out of the room

  3. I’m reasonably sure paid trolls are hitting various web sites trying to fan the flames of the Trayvon case.

  4. I read things like this and it is bone-crushingly dissapointing. As a reporter, the violation of the rule, “You don’t make the news, you report it” is deeply dis-spiriting.

    They are looking for outcomes. An utter and surpassing travesty of what I have personally worked very hard towards in my career.

  5. Roddy, this is a result of J-schools teaching that the job of a “journalist” is not simply to find out what happened and report it, but to make the world a better place.

  6. “…but to make the world a better place.”

    McGehee, you left out for the children

  7. I had a dream. In it, the ghost of Martin Luther King Jr. sallied forth and slapped the living shit out of that creature who is so poorly endowed with what’s been termed ‘class’ and ‘character’, that racialist and LeftLibProgg activist Al Sharpton.

    Of course it was a dream. Martin Luther King Jr. wouldn’t really slap a bitch, would he?

  8. I’m reasonably sure paid trolls are hitting various web sites trying to fan the flames of the Trayvon case.

    Web sites?


    Under Mr. Holder’s rule, it’s now apparently legal to offer a $10K contract hit on any US citizen live on CNN.

  9. Class warfare didn’t work. The phony “war on on women” didn’t work. Their last gasp is to start a race war.

  10. Fortunately, various radio staions (manned by fellow Visigoths) are busy peeling the varnish off of this manufactured outrage.

    One fellow set forth five different instances of people being sent home to Jesus by hoodie wearing thugs over the last week, and threw in the British tourists in FL for good measure. One of these incidents took place in hoodie-wearin’ Bobby Rush’s own district.

  11. As hard as they can, I don’t think they will be able to make Trayvon Martin into the new Emmett Till. Not in the eyes of anyone who read the police reports and the original news stories, who have George Zimmerman for a neighbor … and are congnizant of the true stats on interracial violence.
    Which still leaves a fair number of people who will believe that Trayvon is the Emmett Till for the 2010s against any evidence to the contrary. Sigh. This is going to be a long, long summer.
    So, any guesses what next week’s manufactured crisis will be? Something happening in Arizona, New Mexico or California involving illegal immigrants from Mexico will be my bet. Something that will get La Raza all hot and bothered and out screaming and yelling under protest signs and paper mache figures.

  12. The whole idea that Trayvon Martin’s homicide was even remotely like the murder of Emmitt Till is a slap in the face to the Civil Rights Movement and to all who have and do condemn racism.

  13. Sgt. Mom, I think you are on to something about the crisis (manufactored or no) being in the SW.

    Amnesty is on the table.

  14. Slap in the face to the real and genuine civil rights movement as it was? Why certainly. But it isn’t stopping the racial pimps from pushing the comparison, as near as I can see. Not deliberately and overtly, but I am certain that is the underlying and powerful meme being expressed here by the pro-Trayvon protesters. Sweet, darling, innocent little Trayvon, brutally and deliberately murdered by a Horrid White Racist Allowed To Walk Away Because Of A Corrupt And Compromised Police Establishment; that’s the meme being pushed. I am certain that was the reason for that three or four year old picture of him being the initial image plastered all over when the story first broke. The meme and the parallel are being pushed, consciously or unconsciously. There is a reason that the images and reports of him as a 17-year old gangsta-wanna-be are resisted as they are revealed, as well as the uncomfortable information that he was something less than a stainless, spotless honor student and trainee saint.

  15. Agreed. I also believe it was purposeful on the part of the race pimps.

  16. less than a stainless, spotless honor student and trainee saint.

    It’s Come to This… Florida Marchers Compare Trayvon Martin to Jesus Christ

  17. Trayvon Martin died for your sins


  18. What’s the forecast there in Sanford? The Rev keeps this up, he’s gonna get smote.
