Media and the public TruthSubmitted by Seaofrhodes on Thu, 06/21/2012 - 01:01
The doctoring by NBC or MSNBC of the Zimmerman tape at the time of the aledged Zimmerman crime, is the broadest abuse of media power in the USA of which I am aware. It stands up against totalitarian thought and action. A form of law should be designed to prosecute both NBC and any similar behaviour in a media which claims to represent public 'truth'. NBC said they fired the 'director' responsible, and Andrea Mitchel cut and misrepresented the Romney tape.
This is a very serious problem. Freedom of speech must be protected. Proof of falsification through the media of freedom of speech needs definite penalties and legal guidelines.
