I can see where it was a mistake made in the interest of fitting the allotted time, rather than a deliberate effort to "spin" the story, but I've got no problem with them learning an expensive lesson about not "misquoting by editing".
Back in early April, Jeralyn discovered the deliberate misquote also appeared in text articles on NBC sites and preserved the evidence in screenshots.NBC’s Bad Edit Pre-dated Today Show And Still Appears on NBC News Siteshttp://www.talkleft.com/story/2012/4/9/43020/94141

"NBC intentionally edited George Zimmerman’s non-emergency call to make it appear he is a racist, then they repeatedly broadcast that edited tape to the nation. What NBC did is outrageous," O'Mara said. "Due in large part to NBC’s actions, George has had to live in hiding, in fear for his life. Yes, we are considering a lawsuit against NBC for defamation, and we have collaborated with outside counsel to advise Mr. Zimmerman."
