I stopped watching NBC after Friends went off, but if NBC is actually stupid enough to think that anyone will buy the "mistake" excuse then they are much more ignorant than I had originally thought.

Yes, the 2-3 hours of editing was a mistake. The editor must have blacked out and had no control of his edits. :)

it's bad, and the guy lost his job. the guy at ESPN who let the jeremy lin headline go out also lost his job. definitely not making excuses, but the nature of the position and the pressures have having to deliver ratings certainly plays a part in the decision making (or lack of)

Did the guy lose his job? They won't even name who it was. Could be a straw man to appease the masses. Just saying.

hahahahaha...what a joke. In a case like this one the editors and his supervisors should all be fired. Before news get out they go through at least 4-5 people to get approval.

Agreed.

What's funny about this case is that Zimmerman's name is put out into the public, but not the NBC producer's name that was fired? So, the media believes in privacy when it is THEIR lives? Zimmerman's life is in danger because of the media releasing his name and everything about him, but they don't release their producer's name? This "error" and firing is NEWS and this producer's name should be made public.

But, the media double standard, and lack of accuracy and ethics runs wild in the MSM.

You are completely right. We see it all the time and I do not think that it is going to change. It is just a matter of time until someone that works over there releases the name.
