Correspondent at NBC Affiliate Created Fake Zimmerman Recording

Even though NBC didn't want to furnish any information on their in-house "investigation", they should know by now that with alternative media available to the masses that the truth will eventually be made known.

According to a Southern Florida television news blog, the creator of at least one of the false audio clips was a correspondent with NBC's Miami affiliate WTVJ named Jeff Burnside. According to SFLTV, Burnside was the person responsible for editing Zimmerman's call to 9-1-1 which made him appear to be racially motivated in his pursuit of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin. That manufactured audio was then taken by NBC News and run on the air:
