Family Furious News Reporter "Edits" Complete Story

Ritch Cassidy


Quick Backstory:

 A couple and their young son were at a Des Moines park over the weekend when a tv reporter stopped and asked him to share his thoughts on the Memorial Day weekend.  You can watch either clip first, but neither of them tell the same story. 

 (Top Video): His wife is filming him and the reporter asks him about Memorial Day, and if the meaning of it has been lost. The guy says not to him, and then goes into a minute or so about his love for... the military and family members who have served. The reporter then asks him if he is going to grill out and drink beer on the weekend.


(Below): The actual "News" piece that ran on TV.

The audio is VERY low...but you'll get the point.


So instead of airing his love for the military, which he talked about in-depth, the news reporter aired that he likes beer and chillin' on Memorial Day.

Great job at your editing KCCI and Adam Brower KCCI. Although you would have loved to interview someone who believed Memorial Day was about bbq's and beers-inst...ead you got someone who loves America and is proud of what today stands for. So you chopped and screwed it to for your narrative. #Fakenews at its best. Please share this and expose the news channels for what they are. Fake and disappointing.

 The family, as you can imagine, isn't too pleased with the station or reporter. Their story has already gone viral with nearly 3,000 shares and counting.

What do you think? Would you be upset?
