NBC weasels on their liability for libel vs Zimmerman

by James Denison / February 26, 2013 1:20 PM PST

Looks like NBC wants to weasel out of what they've already admitted publicly, which is they deliberately (and I believe with malice) lied about Zimmerman, especially where they did selective editing of tapes to make something appear what it wasn't. Shades of Connie Chung and Dan Rather!!!!

this incident on it's anniversary when they didn't even bother to report it on the day it originally happened.

NBC was clearly in the wrong

And did a great injury publicly to Zimmerman. Hopefully Zimmerman will prevail against them. Even the press should not be above the same laws we all face concerning defamation, libel, slander, and so forth.
