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. http://traprockpeace.org/npr_totenberg_oct_02_2003.html 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 buzzflash.com 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 - http://traprockpeace.org/npr_totenberg_oct_02_2003.html **** Also at http://www.traprockpeace.org **Updates to national 'depleted' uranium tour.
