A third person involved with a misleadingly edited recording of George Zimmerman’s 911 call to police in the Trayvon Martin case is no longer employed by NBC News. TV Newser reported today that Luciano was dismissed after an investigation that also led to the firing of a still-unidentified Miami-based NBC News producer. In a segment for the Today show on March 22, the New York Times reported today, Lilia Luciano used the misleadingly edited version of Zimmerman’s 911 call that had been broadcast previously on Miami NBC affiliate WTVJ. In a cascading repetition, yet another correspondent, Ron Allen, used the misleading audio in another story a few days later. Luciano is the third journalist to have lost their job over this story. WJTV reporter Jeff Burnside was also fired for his role in broadcasting the misleading audio. WTVJ said when Burnside was fired last week that its edited audio was a separate incident from the Today report on the NBC network.
