ABC defends editing Michelle Obama’s ‘automatic weapon’ claim
Washington Examiner ^ | 2/26/13 | Michal Conger

Posted on 02/26/2013 6:11:23 PM PST by Nachum

ABC is defending its decision to edit out an apparently erroneous claim by Michelle Obama in its broadcast of the first lady’s interview on Good Morning America today, saying it made the changes “solely” for the sake of time.

As The Washington Examiner reported this morning, the first lady claimed during an interview with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts that 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton, who was killed in Chicago shortly after performing during the President’s Inauguration, was shot because “some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need.”

In fact, Chicago Police reported Pendleton was shot by a man who “opened fire with a handgun before fleeing in a waiting car,” according to the Associated Press.

This is how stupid these elites think the folks really are.

They think that their audience prefers to be kept in the dark about any facts that might deflate the liberal bubble.

I wish I thought they were wrong.

Just reverse the tables and you can see the clear bias.

Imagine Laura Bush, being first lady at the time, appearing at the Oscars and ABC ommitted the phase "End Abortion" from her speech.

Not a snowballs chance in H$##.

Do you mean that a News Network that Rigged a Pickup truck with EXPLOSIVES in an effort to “create” news and Destroy an American Car Company might have Lied?? Why exactly do they have a License to broadcast over the “Public Airwaves”??
