    …yeah, NBC’s only a TV network, from which a huge population of news consumers expected truth…

    On a related, although trival, note: NBC should also know that the people of Lexington, KY did not “riot in the streets” after the NCAA basketball championship game, as reported on the Today show Tuesday morning. There was no riot at all. I live here I should know. Some few of the thousands of people celebrating were destructive idiots, but there was no rioting.

    After the ridiculous editing of the Zimmerman 911 call, I have to say I wasn’t surprised to hear them misreporting what happened in Lexington. It made me mad, however.
