    ABC edits out michelle saying girl was killed by "automatic" weapon

    ABC broadcast edits out Michelle Obama claim that Chicago teen was killed by an ?automatic weapon? | WashingtonExaminer.com

    used to just be msnbc and nbc editing audio/video clips...add abc to that list i guess.

    it's also weird that people have not yet been able to understand the difference between auto and semi-auto

    I have been watching re runs of Adam-12 and they always refer to a handun as a revolver or .45 automatic.
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    And exactly what is the perceived effect of that editing? Usually the MSM gets it wrong and uses the term "automatic" indiscriminately when used to describe firearms.

    Do you see this as harmful or misleading?

    Even if she does what was her point? Even if she was right that it was an automatic weapon, is she trying to bolster the argument for more gun control? That is where the ignorance comes in because you can't ban something than is already banned (essentially) and obtain an automatic weapon even with the holy grail of a "universal background check." I think she knew exactly what she was doing by telling this whopper by saying it was an automatic weapon even though she knew it wasn't. Must be one of those AK-47s that her husband proclaimed isn't the problem in Chicago.

    Reading the story, it looks like they took out other stuff too. That said, should the news report what someone said exactly or should they report what's true? That's a hell of a choice. Editing her comment increased the odds that a viewer would be less-misinformed. It also prevented her from being 'caught' making a mistake.

    Oh, leave her alone. She just misspoke. Just semantics over guns- no big deal. They should all be banned anyway.

    She must have depleted all her poise and eloquence on her Oscar award presentation. You didn't expect her to mess THAT up, did you?!

    Thumbs down Our Media at work.. Michelle Obama misquoted.

    Our Media at work.. Michelle Obama misquoted.

    For the broadcast, ABC’s Good Morning America producers edited out the First Lady’s “automatic weapon” line.

    She was standing out in a park with her friends in a neighborhood blocks away from where my kids grow – grew – up, where our house is. She had just taken a chemistry test. And she was caught in the line of fire because some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need. I just don’t want to keep disappointing our kids in this country. I want them to know that we put them first.

    In the web edition of the story, however, Michelle Obama appears to be quoted in full:

    “She was standing out in a park with her friends in a neighborhood blocks away from where my kids…grew up, where our house is. She had just taken a chemistry test. And she was caught in the line of fire because some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need,” she said. “I just don’t want to keep disappointing our kids in this country. I want them to know that we put them first.”

    It is hard for sheeple to comprehend the difference between semi- auto and full auto UNLESS it is referencing their welfare checks or free government giveaways. Even then they think that semi is just half of their monthly take and full is what they justly deserve.

    Huh?? So you AGREE with banning all guns? Is that what I'm seeing?

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    OV...I was channeling Hillary.

    Where did it get her? Exonerated of all blame from what I can see.

    ABC was clearly covering for Michelle. The Main stream "news" has lost all credibility IMO.
