Great, NBC just might get Penn State pedophile Jerry Sandusky a new trial.
From Reuters: Lawyers
for Jerry Sandusky sought a mistrial before his conviction for child
sex abuse on the grounds that prosecutors showed jurors an inaccurate
version of a bombshell NBC News interview with the former football
coach, and the mistake may now form part of the basis for an appeal.
In response to a subpoena, NBC
News turned over three versions of Bob Costas' NBC News interview with
Sandusky, which aired last November on different NBC shows.
of those versions, which was broadcast on the 'Today' show, contained
an erroneous repetition of a key question and answer - about whether
Sandusky was sexually attracted to young boys, Nils Frederiksen, a
spokesman for the Pennsylvania attorney general said on Sunday.
The repetition, Sandusky's lawyers contend, made it appear to jurors that he was stonewalling.
wasn't noticed by (NBC News), it wasn't noticed by us, but it became
obvious when it played in court," Frederiksen told Reuters.
Is NBC capable of reporting a news story accurately?
First, NBC totally distorts George Zimmerman's 911 call to the police in the Trayvon Martin case, distorted a quote from Rick Perry to make it look like he was racist and just recently distorted a quote from Mitt Romney about finding a cash register amazing even though he was talking about something else.
I really think it is time to boycott NBC, MSNBC and CNBC news and perhaps it's sponsors, especially if Sandusky is given a new trial for NBC's fraud.
NBC is no longer a credible news agency and any story they run should be treated as not true until proved otherwise.
