[casi] CIA Scandal: Justice Department granted White House delay inorder to preserve records - NPR deletes Totenberg report from transcript

News Flash

On October 2nd, Nina Totenberg reported on Morning Edition that the Justice
Department granted a White House request to delay a directive to preserve
its records as part of the CIA exposure scandal.  Then, NPR deletes her
report from its transcript of the show.

Hear the audio of her report, and see the sanitized transcript.

Why did the Justice Department delay its directive to not destroy phone and
email records? Does this action support call for independent investigation?
Why did NPR delete what was clearly the most interesting (as well as the
most damaging) part of Nina Totenberg's interview on Morning Edition?

Thanks to Robert E. Reynolds for transcribing the lost segment.  Thanks to for posting Reynolds' work. Traprock discovered the NPR
deletion when it followed Reynolds' advice to purchase the transcript of the
show, only to find that Totenberg's report on the cooperation between the
White House and the Justice Department had been deleted from the transcript.

Luckily, NPR had neglected to delete the report from the audio.  You can
hear the audio of the missing report at Traprock's site -
