NBC Nightly News Edits Out Critical Parts of 911 Call, Video in Ma’Khia Bryant Shooting

NBC Nightly News Edits Out Critical Parts of 911 Call, Video in Ma’Khia Bryant Shooting

NBC’s report cast the officer in a bad light, making him appear trigger happy and Bryant as girl just holding a knife.

I guess NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt practices what he preaches. A few weeks ago, Holt said, “fairness is overrated,” and journalists don’t have to be objective.

Holt and his program came under fire after airing edited versions of the 911 call and video of the Ma’Khia Bryant shooting in Columbus, OH.

Kevin Tibbles provided the story for NBC Nightly News:

KEVIN TIBBLES: Police bodycam video shows Ma’khia Bryant’s final moments. When a Columbus, Ohio police officer responding to a call gets out of his car and, seconds later, fatally shoots the 16-year-old girl.

OFFICER NICHOLAS REARDON: Get down! Get down! Get down! [ Gunshots ]

TIBBLES: Authorities say Bryant was threatening two other girls with a knife.

MICHAEL WOODS (Interim Police Chief]: It’s a tragedy. There’s no other way to say it. It’s a 16-year-old girl.

TIBBLES: Officer Nicholas Reardon, who joined the force in December of 2019, was responding to a 911 call.

911 CALL: We need a police officer here now.

TIBBLES: Video shows Reardon approaching a group of young people in this driveway.

Tibbles and Holt showed the knife on the ground, but not in Bryant’s hands.

“Threatening.” “Holding.” The caller told 911, “These grown girls over here trying to fight us, trying to stab us.”

The video shows Reardon taking action because Bryant was seconds away from stabbing a girl.

Nicholas Fondacaro at NewsBusters noted ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News included the key parts in the video and 911 call:

In stark contrast, not only did ABC correspondent Trevor Ault play the important part of the 911 call in his report, he also froze the footage and highlighted the knife in Bryant’s hand just inches away from her would-be victim. “It appears Ma’khia Bryant, in the black t-shirt and jeans, swings a knife at the girl in pink, Officer Reardon then firing a burst of shots,” he described to viewers.

For CBS’s part, correspondent David Begnaud reported on the scene in the video by noting “Bryant appears to be chasing one girl, before threatening another.” Adding: “Slowed down, police say the video shows 16-year-old Bryant raising a knife.” The video then zoomed on the hand holding the knife.


AG Hamilton (you need to follow him on Twitter) retweeted a video from a different angle. Ma’Khia Bryant screamed, “I’m going to stab the f*** out of you, b****!”

Because of course they did.

The American people didn’t need that information to come to the BLM approved ‘correct’ conclusions.

Ignorance is Strength.

Q. How stupid do you have to be to charge at someone with a knife, pin them against a car, and raise the knife in preparation to stab them in the chest, while screaming you will stab the f**k out of them, with a police officer 10-20 standing away?

A. Darwin Award level stupid. Which also evidently qualifies one as a candidate for BLM Sainthood.

Follow up question… Does this qualify as ‘suicide by cop’? Or did she have to successfully stab a GOP Representative and then charge a few others for that?

Holt is an Affirmative-Action hire, the head buffoon in the coon show.

    The comments on that twitter thread are hilarious. “He shouldn’t have shot her, he had 10 seconds to de-escalate the situation”. “He had 100% chance of de-escalating the situation by non-lethal means”. Never mind that he’s busy pushing away the guy who was trying to kick the downed girl in the head.

    Wow. S*t goes down fast, don’t it?
    Security video way easier to follow than the bodycam footage.

      Ironclaw in reply to henrybowman. | April 22, 2021 at 10:42 pm

      Yeah, but the bodycam footage really illustrates what the cop had to work with to come to the correct conclusion, which he did.

        henrybowman in reply to Ironclaw. | April 23, 2021 at 7:30 pm

        The problem is that the body cam field of view is always far, far narrower than what the human eye actually has to work with, so it’s really hard to follow.

      amatuerwrangler in reply to henrybowman. | April 23, 2021 at 12:25 am

      Yeah, it happens just that fast. At least that cop had the benefit of a general idea of what he was going into. Now you know why so many of us had gray hair long before our time. It will be a long time before this cop has a normal night’s sleep.

    If the girl in pink had fled to the other side of the street she could have taken herself out of harms way. Instead she headed toward the first girl who fell over backwards avoiding the knife but ends up getting kicked in the head.
    Officer did a great job of saving the girl in pink, but if she had left the area as the tensions were rising this whole thing might have been avoided. Instead they’re all staying in the area adding to the conflict.
    Put it down to the hood mentality of not wanting to be disrespected. Stupidity all around.

Lester the news molester is worse then Brian Williams.

NBC= No Black Crimes

The fake stream media is editing audio and video and then airing it as factual and using it to advance their own agenda instead of simply telling what actually happened. Hmmmm. This surprises who?

What does anybody expect from these maggots?

And don’t forget to call everyone “doctor”:

White North Carolina official fired for refusing to use black woman’s doctoral title:

Imagine? So how they’re destroying the cache of medical degrees. Who does she think she is – Jill “Call Me Doctor” Biden, with her ‘Bill Cosby’ honorary degree?

Or Idi Amin:
“His Excellency, President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin Dada, VC, DSO, MC, CBE, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Seas and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular””

    On the other side of things, I have met quite a few people who hold doctorates in various fields. Virtually all of them have said, in effec, “Yes, I hold a doctorae, but I don’t use the title.” The common threads among them: white, male, or both.

    I gon’ consider sending her “Dear Carrie” postcards, maybe one a week.

    Do y’all think USPS deliver them? Is “Harassment by mail” a crime?

    Alternate weeks, “Dear Carrie” with the beautiful “Dear Rosie”?

You know, NBC didn’t bring their A-game to this story. In their heyday, they would have had model rocket engines hidden under that teal car, rigged to explode the gas tank when the cop shot that girl.

Will you buy anything ever again from Le Bron James’ sponsors?

Here’s the morons’ big endorsements: Nike and Pepsi.

The Nike symbol has become a symbol of oppression: the Chi Comms should put it on their flag. And then there’s Pepsi.

Boycott Pepsi and Coke: your body will thank you for it.

Wow, as if we needed more proof how stupid communist propagandists are.

I’m already boycotting Nike because of their support for the antiAmerican crapnik.

NBC edited a 911 call to make a good guy with a gun look bad?

Zimerman. Paging George Zimmerman.

How many more times will that happen before they get sued into bankruptcy for libel, slander, and/or defamation? Their continuous pattern should demonstrate actual malice nicely.

Those saying the officer should have shot at the knife- or a leg of the aggressor- have not looked closely at the video, or they are idiots. As the aggressor approached the girl in pink, the knife was in line with the girl in pink- a shot at the knife would have hit her (even if it hit the knife). And the aggressor’s legs were moving and would have been difficult to hit. Shooting at center mass was the only viable option- least movement, and greatest chance of a quick ending to the confrontation. It worked. I commend the officer for his quick and effective actions.

Lester Holt and NBC felt they needed to “help out“ the story a little, make sure to make a point that the wrong black girl survived. The girl swinging the knife was the real victim. And the girl without the knife was the real aggressor.

Can you imagine the girl whose life was saved being told that she was the wrong person who survived, that her attacker should have lived, and she should have died instead?

    henrybowman in reply to Sally MJ. | April 23, 2021 at 7:39 pm

    Sure, I can imagine it… today. After all, little white school children are being told today that they are evil because they were born white. Some of them are even male. Anyone with any membership in a class disfavored by Democrats is now socially evil.

    Welcome, black girl.

If the officer had NOT intervened, then the Joseph Goebbels media would have lamented that black lives don’t matter to the police, and they deliberately stood by while a helpless black girl was brutally murdered by a White Supremacist (TM).

this was a good shoot–in the moment, all that black/white/young/old/male/female,etc. is out the window–either you act to save an innocent(perhaps at the risk of your own life) or you don’t–he did–and he saved that girl in pink

would encourage everyone–everyone–if you haven’t already–for your own safety and those of your loved ones–take a personal, hand-to-hand self-defense course or two(if not regularly)–mma, krav maga, tk, ak, etc.–because you might find yourself in a similar situation and there won’t be an officer there to intervene–and if it happens and you’re unable to escape(like the girl in pink)you have to know exactly what to do–and(as is obvious from the video)you won’t have a lot of time to act

Lying Lester and NBC are the main purveyors of lies and propaganda on the news airways.
