Update on NBC News’ edit of Zimmerman 911 call

(CNN)– An NBC News correspondent has been let go in the wake of an investigation into the “Today” show’s editing of George Zimmerman’s original 911 call made the night he killed Trayvon Martin.

NBC News has confirmed to CNN that Miami-based correspondent Lilia Luciano no longer works for the organization.

Luciano until March 31 was filing stories for NBC News and was covering the Trayvon Martin death in Sanford, Florida. A source familiar with the investigation but who can not speak publicly says that Luciano’s departure comes as a result of the NBC News inquiry into the editing of George Zimmerman’s 911 phone call. CNN has tried to contact Luciano, but she has not responded.

As Howard Kurtz pointed out on April 1, Luciano’s March 20 report on the “Today” show edited the 911 phone call to take out a sentence which made Zimmerman’s comment appear racially charged.

Miami’s NBC6 WTVJ aired an edited clip similar to the one that appeared on “Today” and fired reporter Jeff Burnside, a 13-year veteran of the NBC owned and operated station. In an interview with Poynter.org Burnside said, “As anybody in the news business knows, something that seems very clear is often very, very complicated.”  NBC6 aired apologies and corrections on their evening broadcasts and have disciplined two other employees, according to The Miami Herald.

NBC News fired an unnamed veteran Miami-based producer on April 5. The network has yet to issue an on-air correction.

      about some survey swinohg either 61% or 80% of news reporters admitting to a liberal lean. Of course, it is also disputed.Your thought about seeing who the majority media endorses sounds reasonable too. I might add that seeing how they supported major candidates in their job once elected could help as well. The media is a very powerful entity, as we all know. Reporting the news shouldn't be used to sway public opinion, as I feel some have done, but to measure public opinion.

      Sorry, but this exercise is find out which way the mjtoriay of the media is biased, as so many claim it is.It is really a simple challenge to the left that claims the right (meaning Bush) receives a pass from mainstream media. All media is biased today. Now, which way are they biased? If biased for Bush, as has been claimed by several, especially on DemocraticUnderground, it should be relatively easy to link to articles anytime during the last 6 years that are pro-Bush.Mediamatters is, of course, decidedly left of center. I especially like the petition to stop giving airtime to "hatemongers" Ann Coulter, Melanie Morgan and Glenn Beck. Makes me wonder how they view Al Franken, Rosie O'Donnell, Randi Rhodes, Larry King, Keith Olberman and more. I failed to find any calls for them being silenced. I find to be more centered.
