CYA at CNN over Zimmerman 911 tape?

If there's one thing we've learned, it's that the mainstream media entities rarely do the right thing simply because it's right. Making things right often only happens after one of those entities has been busted or senses such an outcome is imminent. The latter appears to be what has just happened at CNN.

Last week, it was learned - and incredibly obvious - that NBC news edited a portion of George Zimmerman's 911 call to make him appear racist. It was so bad that it was likened to a Dan Rather moment.

Before NBC was caught red-handed, CNN was pushing the notion that Zimmerman could be heard on the tape referring to Trayvon as a "F***ing coon." Since NBC has been busted manipulating the 911 tape, CNN has apparently decided to prevent being placed in a similar situation by enhancing the audio of the Zimmerman tape and reaching the conclusion that Zimmerman likely said, "(it's) F***ing cold."

Ah, so it was the fault of the audio not being intelligible? That still doesn't fly because if the audio was so unintelligible, why even hint at the suggestion that Zimmerman could have said something so racially charged?

It's good that CNN did this but would they have done it if not for watching NBC News writhing in the agony of journalistic malpractice?
