ABC News edited out First Lady Michelle Obama saying that a Chicago teenager was killed with an automatic weapon. Hadiya Pendleton was allegedly shot by a gang member on probation for a weapons charge with a handgun, not a rifle, which would be semi-automatic (unless it was a revolver.)
Robin Roberts got the first interview with Mrs. Obama since the inauguration in January, which she used to ask about gun-control efforts by President Obama.
A spokesman for ABC News, Heather Riley, emailed me that, The full story was posted to our website in advance of the interview being broadcast. The edits made to Robins interview with the First Lady were made solely for time.

Right, several seconds. Just like they remove the (D) to conserve media space.
Heather Riley is a shameless, brazen liar.
Our media is completely biased.
This is nothing more and nothing less than a Coupe by Media.
They will lie and edit the truth to give cover for their politics.
These people need to be dealt with, I just have no idea how to do anything about it.
Its hard to fight against people who want to be enslaved by their Government Betters, especially when they are supposed to be this county’s Free Press.
Maybe it was a Glock 18...
“These people need to be dealt with, I just have no idea how to do anything about it.”
They are losing market share, influence and credibility. We must continue to build and develope the new media.
They got away with it last time, and called it "Watergate".
We will tell you what you should know. Trust us.
Sure michelle, whatever you say michelle. Yeeessssss....drinking the Koolaid.
BLOCK ABC TOTALLY AND NEVER TUNE THEM IN...WE NEVER DO AND IF EVERYONE WOULD TURN THEM OFF..JUST MAYBE THEY WILL....WAKE UP...
It might be a sedan.
