Melber said nothing on the air about the fact that it initially aired an edited portion of the video.

Last spring, NBC’s “Today” show and its Miami station WTVJ aired versions of a police emergency call made by Florida neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman that emphasized his identification of Trayvon Martin as a black man, before Zimmerman shot Martin. Zimmerman had given his description of Martin after a dispatcher asked about his race but that portion of the tape wasn’t initially aired. NBC later apologized.
