NBC Launches Internal Investigation Over Altered Zimmerman Call

NBC News is said to have launched an internal investigation into why it posted an edited version of George Zimmerman’s call to a 911 dispatcher made prior to a shooting incident resulting in the death of 17 year-old Trayvon Martin. The altered version made it appear as though Martin’s race was an important factor that night for Zimmerman, when, in fact, he was only answering a question posed by a 911 dispatcher.
