TODD: There is sort of a thing about being a trustworthy person, and it kind of goes like this. Like, if you want people to think that you are not a liar, don’t lie all the time. Like, make an effort to not lie. Maybe even most of the time tell the truth. Maybe even the preponderance of the time. Now, there was a time when this was sort of a thing with journalism that was kind of a big deal.

Who, what, where, when, why — truthfully. NBC Nightly News has been caught deceptively editing the Columbus shooting video and 911 call. You will remember, I believe it was last week. I believe it was CBS News that got caught with a deceptive edit of the lead-up to the tragic killing of Daunte Wright, shooting, who had a gun. He was also called ‘Lil Homicide, which was in fact part of the story, or should have been.

So when you do this, you lose credibility. But there’s something else I want us to understand, because as we attempt to get our country back, we are also working with people traumatized. Obviously, people who witness shootings and cops who are forced to decide whether to take a life to save a life. That’s a trauma that we can pray we never go through and pray for the people who have been through that.

In the United States, people who turn to the mockingbird media members for their news are traumatized people. They’re traumatized about the covid flu, about the global warming. They’re traumatized by race relations. They’re traumatized and they’re lied to — sometimes suggestively, sometimes obviously, but always, it’s like a hurricane of this stuff.

We have this program. We have conservative media outside of this program. We have RushLimbaugh.com. We have all these tools. We have our own intelligence guided by experience. Some people don’t. They just have the mockingbirds. So they’ve been caught deceptively editing the 911 call and the video. First, let’s go here to the original 911 call.

DISPATCHER: 911, what is your emergency?

(unintelligible arguing)


WOMAN: (bleep)

(unintelligible arguing)

DISPATCHER: Do you have a department number or letter?

(unintelligible arguing)

DISPATCHER: What’s going on?

WOMAN: Come up here (bleep)!

(unintelligible arguing)

WOMAN: This —

DISPATCHER: Can you talk to me?

WOMAN: (Bleep) we got (unintelligible) —

(unintelligible arguing)


WOMAN: — over here trying to fight us, trying to stab us, trying to put their hands on our grandma! Get here now!

(unintelligible arguing)

DISPATCHER: Any weapons?

(unintelligible arguing)

WOMAN: (bleep) (bleep) Grandma! Grandma!

DISPATCHER: Ma’am, do you see any weapons?

WOMAN: We need a — We need a police officer here now!

DISPATCHER: Do you see any weapons?

WOMAN: We need a police officer here now!

(unintelligible arguing)

DISPATCHER: Ma’am, do you see any weapons?

(unintelligible arguing)

WOMAN: No! (bleep)

TODD: You can hear in the background the police car arriving. Here is what NBC played.

WOMAN: We need a police officer here now!

TODD: That’s what the victims of NBC heard. Now, they also apparently deceptively edited the video, and I remind you — we talked about this yesterday on the program — the police officer, when he arrived, he had three seconds. Three… two… one. He was trying to break up a fight to deescalate.

He had to jump up. He had to assess that one girl was about to stick a knife in the gut of another girl; then he had to aim and shoot at the girl who at that point was in a disordered emotional state, it seemed, trying to kill somebody. Three…two…one, and NBC played all of two seconds of the video. So now you know (chuckles) you are in trouble when even Fredo Cuomo and Don Lemon agree that NBC was wrong.

FREDO: I heard some people were reporting on the incident without showing the knife.

LEMON: Yeah, you gotta… You gotta show all of it.

CUOMO: That is malpractice.

LEMON: Yeah, and again —

CUOMO: That’s lookin’ for trouble.

LEMON: It’s tough.

CUOMO: — and that’s wrong.

TODD: Yeah, it’s almost like hiding — oh, I don’t know — the Hunter Biden story for — oh, I don’t know — a couple years, or pretending hydroxychloroquine will kill one, or hiding the research that woke masks don’t work and that lockdowns are ineffective, and all those sort of, you know, little details that you leave out of your story. But even now, they’re calling out NBC. Let’s go to Imagineville. Can you imagine what the mockingbird media would have been able to hide and lie about without Rush exposing them as he does right here?

RUSH: I literally am sitting here shocked and stunned. (interruption) No, this is not the first time! They blew up a truck. Remember back on one of those shows like Dateline, it was GM truck and they rigged it to blow up as though it would do so naturally. They rigged the thing to blow up. By doctoring a tape, they actually left a couple sentences out of the 911 call from George Zimmerman to make it look like the only thing on his mind was race, when it wasn’t.

We got the audio sound bites to prove it. This is typical. I expect NBC, after their investigation, to stand by this thing. You know what they’re gonna say? “Well, Zimmerman said it.” They didn’t put anything in that Zimmerman didn’t say. They just left out a bunch of stuff he did say, and they left out a question he was asked. But they’ll say, “He said it” Race is a template in the media.

Remember, this is the race business. It doesn’t matter if the percentages are 1% of black people murdered are murdered by whites, that’s enough to propel the race industry, and they’re gonna focus on it, and they’re gonna say it’s, “Race, race, race.” And so you’ve got somebody steeped in media traditions at NBC, and that template is almost branded in their brain. It’s almost embellished.

And so if they’re reading a transcript and they see that they can assemble the various elements of the conversation in a way that confirms what they believe going in, they’ll do it. And they think they’re performing a service. They don’t think they’ve doctored anything. They think they’re helping everybody understand what’s really going on here, what really happened.

And they’re cutting away all of the irrelevant fat from the story, getting right to the meat and potatoes. That’s what this guy thinks he’s doing. There may be an element of somebody knowingly falsifying this and trying to get away with it. My point to you is that this is so “indelled” in their brains that they don’t think there’s anything wrong with doctoring the tape. Remember, getting to the truth — as they see it, and as it’s been explained to them, and as they’ve been taught — is all that matters. Anyway, we’ll play the two segments of the tape to show you what happened, let you hear it.

This is a tape of George Zimmerman’s 911 call.

ZIMMERMAN: This guy looks like he’s up to no good, or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining, and he’s just walking around looking about.

DISPATCHER: Okay. This guy, is he white, black, or Hispanic?

ZIMMERMAN: He looks black.

RUSH: George Zimmerman. “This guy looks like he’s up to no good, on drugs or something. It’s raining, he’s walking around looking about.” Dispatcher: “Okay, is he white, black, or Hispanic?” Zimmerman: “He looks black.” Here’s how it aired on NBC.

ZIMMERMAN: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black!

RUSH: A 100% distortion, a 100% recreation of what happened. In order to put together that sound bite that you just heard they had to knowingly and willingly edit the question of the dispatcher and then they had to edit Zimmerman saying, “He looks black,” right after he says, “He looks like he’s up to no good.” But Zimmerman wasn’t through when he said this guy “looks like he’s up to no good.”

That’s where NBC stopped it. Zimmerman kept on. After he said, “This guy looks like he’s up to no good, or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining, and he’s walking around looking about.” NBC takes that out. They took the dispatcher question out, and they added on Zimmerman saying, “He looks black.” What is there to investigate here? Anybody with two ears and an IQ of 50 knows what happened here.

Is the investigation of who did it, or are they investigating if it’s wrong? What are they investigating at NBC? They’re investigating how they can get out of this. They are investigating how they can come up with a plausible explanation for this. That’s what NBC is doing. Listen to them again. This is what actually happened.

ZIMMERMAN: This guy looks like he’s up to no good, or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining, and he’s just walking around looking about.

DISPATCHER: Okay. This guy, is he white, black, or Hispanic?

ZIMMERMAN: He looks black.

RUSH: This is what NBC aired last Tuesday on the Today Show.

ZIMMERMAN: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black!

RUSH: Folks, this is outrageous, absolutely outrageous. This is one of the most glaring, obvious, egregious examples of racial bias and hatred. And, yes, it is hatred at NBC that led to this. There is no compassion here. There’s no open-minded here. There’s no tolerance here. Why didn’t the 911 dispatcher ask if he was a “white Hispanic”? Isn’t that a standard category now?

The dispatcher said, “Is he white, black or Hispanic?” I didn’t hear him say, “Is he white, black, or ‘white Hispanic’?” The New York Times added that for us, into the lexicon, and NBC on their Dateline show or whatever their 60 Minutes copycat show was blew up that truck. They were trying to show that if you bought and drove this particular truck, “Beware, it could blow up on you,” and they had a demonstration of how this just randomly happens, and they ran the demonstration.

It was later learned that they’d rigged explosives in the truck!

TODD: It’s just a thing. If you don’t want people to think you’re liars, don’t lie all the time — and also this. Please let’s remember this in our hearts. People are victimized by NBC and CNN and other mockingbird media outfits, and if we will remember that, we can deal with them effectively.
