NY Post: George Zimmerman To Sue NBC News Over Misleading Edit

The man charged with shooting teenager Trayvon Martin earlier this year is planning to sue NBC News over a misleading edit on “Today,” according to the NY Post.

George Zimmerman‘s attorney’s plan to file charges soon, naming NBC News president Steve Capus and correspondent Ron Allen as defendants in addition to the organization as a whole.

The edit in question made national news, and seemed to suggest that Zimmerman was following Martin because he was black, when in fact a police dispatcher asked what race he was. NBC launched an internal investigation into the matter, and eventually fired a number of employees over the incident.

The Post adds:

A source tells us, “The suit will be filed imminently against NBC and its news executives. The network’s legal department has put everybody in the news department involved with this incident on notice, telling them not to comment.”
