    I may be wrong, but I think it's the latter because of how you avoided answering my question.
    Really, you sticking up for Rush Limbaugh and Z are "misrepresenting?" You said it was different, mostly because you think conservative commentators are exempt from the same rules as liberals.

    No, I don't think NBC should be held responsible, because they didn't say "Go kill George Zimmerman." They are not responsible for the actions of another group.

    Generally, those would be the people with no respect for the justice system and who's moral compass and judgments are tethered politics, ideology and self interest.

    The fact that he had a gun doesn't make him automatically right or wrong. I know we want to see the eeeeeevil libruls crucified....but just let it go.
    You have stock in NBC or something?

    Rush Limbaugh? I have said nothing about Limbaugh because he has nothing to do with this topic....

    I didn't realize you only trying to derail this thread... I thought you might actually want to have a discussion about it.

    No, I don't think NBC should be held responsible, because they didn't say "Go kill George Zimmerman." They are not responsible for the actions of another group.
    Well that's just FANTASTIC...

    So you believe the media has the right to edit what a private citizen says on an audio tape, make the public believe something that is not true, put them and their family in danger, without any repercussions.

    And people wonder what I have against liberals... pffff

    Guess that is libel too right?
    The law is different with public figures and private citizens... Putting that aside, if such editing put a persons life in danger, then you they should be held liable.

    A Sanford judge today put an end to George Zimmerman's libel suit against NBC Universal.

    Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson ruled that the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer is entitled to no money from the media giant.

    She issued a summary judgment in the network's favor, meaning that unless an appeals court reverses her, the case is now dead.

    [...]

    "Zimmerman and his family had received death threats and had gone into hiding long before any of the challenged broadcasts," she wrote.

    Zimmerman had made himself more difficult to defame, the judge wrote, because he had voluntarily made himself a public figure long before the shooting. In 2010, when the Sanford Police Department refused for weeks to arrest the son of a white police officer who had punched and broken the nose of a homeless black man, Zimmerman publicly protested.

    That was an example, Nelson wrote, of Zimmerman "voluntarily injecting his views into the public controversy surrounding race relations and public safety in Sanford."

    Judge Nelson has proved she should not be on the bench over and over again.

    Just to be clear on how I stand, I watched the trial every day and believe the decision was the correct one, I believe that NBC should be held liable for their irresponsible and reckless behavior, but I do not hold any personal opinions about Zimmerman or believe he some kind of hero who should be revered.

    I don't think he should get rich off of this, just be fairly compensated for the harm NBC's actions caused him and his family.

    So it's bad when liberals do it, but not when James O'Keefe does it? Interesting.....
