    Yes it is absolutely true. Several NBC anchors were fired for that. You can read the wikipedia article on zimmerman martin case and it clearly states it NBC faked it and is subject of lawsuit.

    MSNBC also did the same and they too are subject of lawsuit. Unlike NBC, MSNBC never apologized. This is very bad on their credibility. If a network is caught red handed being a liar, the audience deserves apology.

    In the jury settlement, the jurors often look if the network showed remorse or apologized later. Since MSNBC didn't they will be frowned upon worse than NBC and may end up paying bigger settlement

    Yes. They deleted the part of the recorded 911 call where the dispatcher asked what race Martin was. They made it sound like Zimmerman was calling only because Martin is black. NBC did it again on another story a few weeks later. This is available on the Internet.

    Dispatcher asked Zimmerman if the person he was calling about was white, black or hispanic. Zimmerman answered "I think he's black". NBC edited out the part where the dispatcher asked about his race, so it sounded like Zimmerman blurted out "I think he's black" on his own.

    No. It's true that one editor edited the 911 call to make it sound as though Zimmerman was hostile towards black people. That editor was fired within 48 hours for his actions, and NBC issued an apology to Zimmerman and their viewers.

    That's an exaggeration but what is likely is lawyers from all over the country piling at Zimmerman's feet begging for chance at slander suit against MSNBC.
