I knew from the moment I saw this story that ABC would claim they made this edit solely for time, and that’s just what they said:

The full story was posted to our website in advance of the interview being broadcast. The edits made to Robin’s interview with the First Lady were made solely for time.

Yeah right. And I’m the next in line to be James Bond.

Here’s the edit, originally caught by the Washington Examiner:

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.”

The mistake, as you can see, was that Michelle Obama erroneously said that the girl was killed with automatic weapons. The police believe it was with semi-automatic handguns. But hey, liberals probably don’t know the difference anyway.
