    TV Station Takes Four-Year-Old Child

    A Chicago television station is being blasted by civil rights leaders and news media professionals for airing edited video of a 4-year-old boy that took his statements out of context, violating the basics of journalism ethics.

    The following is a transcript of what the station aired June 30th.

    Boy: “I’m not scared of nothing.”

    Reporter: “When you get older are you going to stay away from all these guns?”

    Boy: “No.”

    Reporter: “No? What are you going to do when you get older?”

    Boy: “I’m going to have me a gun!”

    Anchor Steve Bartelstein ended the story saying, “that was scary indeed.” Co-anchor Susan Carlson exclaimed, “hearing that little boy there, wow!”




    After the story ran July 21, the Maynard Institute received another video that contained the rest of the boy’s interview. The sender said he was blurring the video and reduced its quality to try and protect the youth. Here is that transcript.

    Reporter: “Boy, you ain’t scared of nothing! Damn! When you get older are you going to stay away from all these guns?”

    Boy: “No.”

    Reporter: “No? What are you going to do when you get older?”

    Boy: “I’m going to have me a gun!”

    Reporter” “You are! Why do you want to do that?”

    Boy: “I'm going to be the police!”

    Reporter: “Okay than you can have one."

    *shaking my head*

    All of us need to keep this in mind whenever reading anything from the so-called 'journalists'.

    They also left out the little song he performed:

    "I'm gonna' buy me a shotgun and kill every Honkie I see!
    I'm gonna' buy me a shotgun and kill every Honkie I see!
    Cause if I kill every Honkie I see, then they won't bother me.
    I'm gonna' buy me a shotgun and kill every Honkie I see!"

    Yes, they did. And that makes them not journalists.

    I wonder what happened to this once-honorable profession.

    And here is the part that's edited out (at the end).

    Thanks to the University of Maryland's school of journalism for finding this.

    If the reporter kept his job I'd like to hear station management's rationale.
