ABC hides Michelle Obama’s Gaffe

Michelle Obama weighed in on the death of Hadiya Pendleton in a Chicago gangland shooting, during a Good Morning America interview.   The televised version was edited to remove Michelle’s false claim that automatic weapons were involved, while the web version retains the gaffe.   In fact,  the shooter used a handgun, which was not an automatic weapon,  to fire on people who were not involved in his gang war.

ABC claims that the editing was done for time constraints.

The ABC broadcast edition

“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. And she was caught in the line of fire. I just don’t want to keep disappointing our kids in this country. I want them to know that we put them first.”

The ABC web edition with gaffe included.

“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.”
