  • According to reports, George Zimmerman is planning to sue NBC over mishandled editing of a recording of a 911 call between Zimmerman and a 911 dispatcher.

    NBC apologized for the editing and fired three staff members over the editing, but Zimmerman is not satisfied with just that.

    The New York Post reports, Zimmerman's attorneys are planning to file a complaint against NBC and its news executives.

    The clip made it seem like Zimmerman said, “This guy looks like he's up to no good. He looks black," because NBC edited out the 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.

    NBC reportedly claims the omission was a mistake and it was not done on purpose.

    The suit has not been officially filed yet.
