george_zimmerman_7.jpegORLANDO, Fla. (AP) _ George Zimmerman is considering a defamation lawsuit against NBC over its reports about a phone call he made to dispatchers moments before he fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman's attorney said Thursday that the former neighborhood watch captain has contacted another lawyer about possibly filing a lawsuit.

Each of the reports on either ``Today'' or NBC's Miami station involve editing of Zimmerman's phone call to a dispatcher that emphasizes his identification of Martin as a black male.

Three employees of NBC or the NBC-owned station lost their jobs because of the editing changes.

NBC spokeswoman Megan Kopf says the network isn't commenting

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder but has pleaded not guilty, claiming self-defense.

A delay in Zimmerman's arrest led to protests nationwide.
