CNN, MSNBC, NPR, Fox News, the Washington Post, and ABC are among the media outlets that cut out crucial parts of the transcript of the call between President Donald Trump and Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky. See the full transcript of the call here.
CNN twice on Sept. 25 following the release of the transcript cut out 540 words between one sentence in the transcript and another without noting that anything was between the two sentences.
The deceptive edit started with a line from Trump: “I would like you to do us a favor.” CNN then immediately placed another line—”There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great.
There were no ellipses or any commentary noting the two sentences were not even in the same paragraph in the transcript.
Much more in the link. I encourage you to share it with people who still believe the media is trustworthy, along with a link to the official transcript here
The NPR edit should open the eyes of even the most blind
At NPR, which is publicly funded, ellipses were placed between the sentence “I would like you to find out about what happened with this whole situation in Ukraine” and “there’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son” and the rest of the aforementioned sentence.
The ellipses represented 526 words.
