THE BOLDED & UNDERLINED PARTS WERE EDITED OUT OF THE INTERVIEW

I have a dual purpose with this post: I am very curious to see the FULL UNEDITED transcripts of the other parts of the interview (shown today), as I'm betting it would put Palin in an even better light (and I thought she did very well today).
Thx in advance FReepers, college_kid
We have a live one, ladies and gents: transcript exclusion of interview material by ABC! Whole segments!
actually im quite shock how much was edited out
They played the whole thing on Nightline
They really hacked it up for World News Tonight
They butchered the hell out of it
Thank you for that clarification; that’s not what I had heard. Any idea where I can find the ‘full’ transcripts of the other parts of the interviews?
That Palin challenged them on their half quote of her and they editted that out is outrageous. They were too cocky to check after an original source after the person who said the words challenged them or they are just liars.
Is the entire 20/20 interview out on video yet? All I can get on the ABC site are snippits of, I think, the Nightline interview. I didn’t get to watch it and can’t seem to find the full interview.
It is clear from the transcripts that the meaning and intent of the Governor was materially altered through creative editing.
Sorry, but the first thing I saw on this was “Hot Air” explaining that Gibson had misquoted Palin to Palin and would not backdown when she called him on it. That was enough for me not to waste any time watching any of it.
He slammed her saying “Exact quote” and he was dead wrong on that. Now that is Hubris.
I just watched her interview on 20/20. I think she was fantastic!
I think Charlie Gibson realized he made an ass out of himself yesterday and was on much better behavior for today’s interview. Gov. Palin looked great, sounded great. I think tonight’s interview (the one in primetime that will be viewed by the most people) was a solid triple.
You missed out. That was the first night. In tonight’s interview, Gibson was on better behavior and Gov. Palin really shined - for a PRIME TIME audience. I am very pleased.
They did not butcher it. They edited to purposely distort it.
Any mention of a conservative's success gets automatically cut? "We cannot repeat the Cold War. We are thankful that, under Reagan, we won the Cold War, without a shot fired, also."
It's too obvious why all these comments were cut out: her comments would have re-ignited the same response she got during, and the week following, the convention. Another example of the elitist media trying to shape an election, disgusting.
Butchers can be very skilled.
There it is, Charlie Gibson, that liberal POS, altered her quotation (or some punk within ABC didn’t bother to really look up the quotation), and so they admitted the crucial introductory “Pray that.....”
Gibson insists he is quoting her exact words when he is not, in fact ABC has drastically altered the meaning of her sentence. ABC should be pressured to issue a public apology.
They won’t of course, because they are biased partisan hacks for the Demagogues, but an apology is in order.
OOOPs, that should have said "omitted"..... typing too fast, but weird how the brain can substitute a different word when I knew exactly what I "meant" to say.....
Sometimes butchers cut themselves.
Giv’em time. They’ll bleed out.
