PART 1 Identifying The “Specific” Litigants For Civil Action – Who Is Jeff Burnside?

Part 1 in a New Ongoing Series 

On the night of Feb. 26, 2012 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was fatally shot by George Zimmerman.   Mr. Zimmerman was driving to Target when he spotted Trayvon Martin acting suspiciously while walking through the gated community.   George Zimmerman called the police and then continued to keep an eye on Trayvon Martin.  Watching his actions and informing a police dispatcher of  Martin’s whereabouts.

According to George Zimmerman, as he told police, he fired a personal firearm in self-defense, after Martin attacked him, breaking his nose, and continuing the assault by slamming his head multiple times into the sidewalk.

The media sought to spread a very specific and intentional narrative of racism, and framed their storylines as a white Mr. Zimmerman racially profiling a black teen; a theory the Sanford Police, the FBI, the FDLE eventually the Federal Department of Justice investigated and dismissed as non-factual.

But that did not stop the media from continuing to invest in the false narrative they initially sowed into the mainstream public perception of the case.  Site readers know the detail of these manipulations, we are just going to connect a few visible dots in an effort to streamline the lawsuits upon the media. 

Who is Jeff Burnside?

(Via Huff-Po) A veteran NBC Miami reporter has been fired in the ongoing probe over an edited “Today” show clip of George Zimmerman’s 911 call, placed moments before Zimmerman shot unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.

Jeff Burnside was dismissed from network-owned NBC Miami (WTVJ) over a similarly edited clip on Friday, as first reported by South Florida news blog SFLTV.

According to the Miami Herald, two unidentified employees were also disciplined.

NBC Miami said in an “edit explanation” posted Wednesday evening that it broadcast the edited call March 19, confirming it ran several days before the controversial “Today” clip — which according to Poynter’s MediaWire blog was not generated at NBC Miami but at NBC’s Southeastern headquarters, which are also in Miami.

As anybody in the news business knows, something that seems very clear is often very, very complicated,” Burnside told Mediawire when reached by phone on Wednesday.

NBC launched its internal investigation over the “Today” show segment after admitting an “error…that we deeply regret.” Reports the Associated Press:

NBC’s [New York] “Today” show first aired the edited version of Zimmerman’s call on March 27. The recording viewers heard was trimmed to suggest that Zimmerman volunteered to police, with no prompting, that Martin was black: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.”But the portion of the tape that was deleted had the 911 dispatcher asking Zimmerman if the person who had raised his suspicion was “black, white or Hispanic,” to which Zimmerman responded, “He looks black.”

NBC Miami said in its statement that the Burnside segment also omitted the dispatcher’s question.

Earlier this month NBC fired a producer over the “Today” broadcast, which fanned some pundits’ accusations that media outlets rushed to judgment in the case before all information was available.

According to the SFLTV report, an insider said several employees at NBC Miami and NBC news including an editor or photographer were questioned before the network concluded Burnside was ultimately responsible for the misleading edits on NBC Miami’s clip and fired him on Friday.

Burnside filed at least 9 stories on the Martin case for NBC Miami, including an interview with activist Rev. Al Sharpton (apparently since removed) and at least one live report from Sanford where the 17-year-old Martin was shot walking through the gated neighborhood of his father’s girlfriend.  (Huffington Post attribution)

NOW WE NEED TO FOCUS ON THAT LAST PARAGRAPH AGAIN:  (emphasis mine)

…”Burnside filed at least 9 stories on the Martin case for NBC Miami, including an interview with activist Rev. Al Sharpton (apparently since removed) and at least one live report from Sanford where the 17-year-old Martin was shot walking through the gated neighborhood of his father’s girlfriend”….

Hmmm, an interview with Reverend Al Sharpton “apparently since removed” ?   Whoopsie — Bing, Bing, Bing…. Spidey Sense Alert …..   Three words:  “interview”, “Sharpton”, “removed” all in one sentence equals  COVERUP !    Hmmmm….  Lets dig….

Lots of good linky stories here:  All archived by date

HatTip Anonymous Mr. Green:     Well Here is one non-scrubbed *interview* involving Jeff Burnside.   But would Jeff Burnside, the man who specifically and intentionally produced a “doctored” video tape for NBC Miami broadcast have a vested interest in continuing a series of known lies?    Pay ATTENTION to DATES:

The initial notification that Mr. Burnside sent to his followers of his meeting with Rev Al. was on Thursday March 22nd. (see below)

He conducted the broadcast interview of which he speaks on Thursday March 22nd and brags about it on Saturday March 24th.

NBC’s [New York] “Today” show first aired the edited version of Zimmerman’s call on March 27. The recording viewers heard was trimmed to suggest that Zimmerman volunteered to police, with no prompting, that Martin was black: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.”But the portion of the tape that was deleted had the 911 dispatcher asking Zimmerman if the person who had raised his suspicion was “black, white or Hispanic,” to which Zimmerman responded, “He looks black.”

More than one person took the fall at NBC Miami, but for now, lets just absorb this part.   Jeff Burnside met with Reverend Al Sharpton on Thursday March 22nd, then sometime after the weekend (sat 24, sun 25) transmitted the edited audio to NYC for use on the Nationally Broadcast NBC “Today Show” which aired on Tuesday March 27th.

        SD and everyone here have done a great job in exposing specific media lies. What is really good here is documentation to support most allegations.

        However, I really do not know anyone who trusts the media today. I think most folks know that you cannot believe what is said on TV or in print media or on the internet.

        Sometimes I believe that is why Google was created. LOL.

        I am still wondering what this guy’s ulterior motive was to risk his career. No experienced reporter would ever believe that he could get away with editing a tape like this unless he was high on drugs. I am left to consider that there might be even more to this story.

        One lie often begets another one.

          I agree that many realize the media isn’t trustworthy, but do think that too many never follow up on what they hear on television or read in print to know the truth.

          Considering this guy’s conversation w/witness #9 it could be that he truly believed George is a racist and his editing would have no reason to be questioned. But as mentioned earlier, the industrial media complex (stole that from sundance) isn’t used to having their “work” scrutinized to this degree. They didn’t know it was coming.

        If this reporter was willing to risk his career with an edited tape that he had to know would be discovered, then I would think that there is also a reporter out there.. somewhere.. who would do an expose on this case.

        A documentary series exposing the corruption, even if it does not come from a mainstream source, could work. If it’s “sensational” but also factual, then maybe the mainstream would pick it up.

        I have noticed that a few newspapers outside of Florida have been much more honest in their reporting. The Enterprise in Brockton, Massachusetts comes to mind so it might be worth trying to find an ambitious “whistle blower” investigative reporter. It does not have to be Bob Woodward.

        I am a bit surprised that the National Enquirer has not chimed in.

        Most of my former newspaper contacts have either died or are retired. Otherwise, I would be on the phone.

    I was thinking about different lawsuits that he might could later file and was wondering if the outcome would make a difference. In my way of thinking, he would be damaged more if found guilty of a crime but I also know that my logic does not apply so I suspect that he has a better chance, legally, if he were found to be immune.

    Any legal opinions about this?

    Wouldn’t it be nice if NBC did the honorable thing and made a settlement offer to George before this thing ends? Dream on..

    • Dunno…. The actual links to Christina Johnson on Jeff Burnside’s FB page are now dead ends and take you to a deleted facebook page(s). His page is active and all other links work, but the CJ one is a dead end (so..???) Also the picture of her is similar but not big enough for a definitive, and yes the name is common. Might be her, might be someone else coincidently with the same name, who coincidently deleted their FB page recently, and coincidently looks like W9 and coincidently is communicating with the same circle of peeps.

      However, not really relevent though…. she had nothing to do with the decision to edit the news audio.

      But she most certainly was in contact with various media sorts prior to, and in conjunction with, her calls to SPD. If that is your issue:

    I am more offended for Crystal (the monkey) , because they showed an Obama Campaign commercial following her ad, and as we’ve all see the last 3 1/2 years, Barry hasn’t accomplished as much as her.

    I was most offended when they showed a Budweiser commercial after an Irishman metaled – followed by a ” potato”  chip ad!!

    Why did they show a Ford’s Driver Assist commercial after a Chinese woman won gold in swimming?

    When the British won gold, NBC had an oral hygiene product advertised – disgusting practices!!!

    Guess if Korea metals, an ASPCA ad wouldn’t go over well?

    No “Starkist” ads after Japanese victories!

    I would have been more offended if it was an ad for Home Depot!

    If everyone that is so “sensitive” and we are all “equal”, why do they separate the sexes for events? Best athlete – male or female should compete ( together ) against each other, in each event! Aren’t we all EQUAL??? This is a sexist dividing Games and I will no longer participate!!! Good Day!
