The Today show is under “Investigation” by NBC after…”the morning show aired an edited conversation between George Zimmerman and a 911 dispatcher recorded moments before the shooting. The investigation came after Fox News and others pointed out that the network spliced two parts of the call together, making it appear as if Zimmerman had said, “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.” In reality, Zimmerman was answering a dispatcher’s question:”
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.
Democrat Governor turned pundit for ALGore’s Current TV blaming Republicans for what she herself did.
Interestingly enough, one of the states to pass a “stand your ground” law was Michigan, where Democrat Gov. Jennifer Granholm signed the legislation into law in 2006. Yet amid the anti-gun rhetoric that has proliferated since the Martin shooting—rhetoric which has included innuendo aimed at tarnishing stand your ground laws and then pinning the blame for their existence on Republicans—Granholm has been talking as if she had nothing to do with the passage of the Michigan law.
As a matter of fact, on March 29, Granholm, who now hosts a show on Current TV, “broadcast three separate segments blaming Republicans for ‘the type of [gun] laws that permit George Zimmerman to walk free today.’” (The last time I saw duplicity at such levels, I was watching a video of Barack Obama telling voters that Hillary Clinton was a dangerous candidate because she wanted to implement a healthcare system which Obama himself is now trying to implement as president.)
