Good Riddance!
Hopefully this means an eye toward returning to a decent journalistic approach to news. Of course we just have to take their word for it since his identity is being protected, which is more consideration he gave Zimmerman.

Brian Stelter of the New York Times is reporting
that NBC has fired a producer "involved" in the shameful abridgement of
the George Zimmerman conversation with an emergency dispatcher just
prior to the killing of Trayvon Martin. Here's the meat of Stelter's
The person was fired on Thursday, according to two people
with direct knowledge of the disciplinary action who declined to be
identified discussing internal company matters. They also declined to
name the fired producer. A spokeswoman for NBC News declined to comment.

So it was deliberate then.

I take my reservations in that other thread back, and glad to see he has gone.

Media reporting must be truthful and honest. This shows that 'that' report wasn't.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
