We hear Zimmerman’s attorneys are about to file a complaint against NBC and its top executives, naming news president Steve Capus and correspondent Ron Allen, who was the reporter on the scene for the broadcast on “Today” on March 27.

Newsbusters reminds us of the media malpractice that falsely painted Zimmerman as a racist.

Wow. This reads like a how to guide on yellow journalism: http://t.co/p4jHg9mt Shame on NBC.
