CNN intentionally removed critical audio from the footage of Keith Scott’s death, according to a law enforcement media company. On October 3, TruthPR reported that Blue Lives Matter, “a media company made up entirely of active and retired law enforcement officers,” had issued a statement challenging CNN’s video editing practices. The group announced that the “victims of the Charlotte riots,” which occurred following the fatal police shooting of Scott, “should be able to sue CNN for intentionally editing their video to spread a false narrative.”

As Libertarian vice presidential nominee Bill Weld appeared as a guest on Monday's New Day, co-host Chris Cuomo repeatedly pressed him over whether his candidacy with Gary Johnson as presidential nominee was hurting Hillary Clinton to the benefit of Donald Trump. Even after Weld argued that he believes that mostly moderate Republicans are planning to vote for the Libertarian ticket, Cuomo pressed him twice more on the issue.

While Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network reporters and anchors were quick to pounce on Donald Trump’s private tax returns being released they didn’t seem to express the same concern when candidate Barack Obama was having his personal information looked into. Back in 2008 when it was revealed that Obama’s personal passport information was being looked into by Bush administration State Department officials the terms “skullduggery,” “political dirty tricks” and “bombshell” were being thrown around.

Don't be surprised to see former counterrorism czar Richard Clarke working for Hillary Clinton if she wins the election. Based on what he said on yesterday's This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Clarke seems to be signaling that he's receptive to yet another high-profile government gig.
This became apparent when one considers the striking contrast in how Clarke perceives current threats to our country, specifically cyberattacks, and his well-publicized allegations of failure on the part of George W. Bush and co., to keep Americans safe on and after 9/11.
‘MTP’ Panelists Take Veiled Shots Blaming at Conservative Media, FNC for Decline in American CivilityBy Curtis Houck | | October 3, 2016 | 1:20 PM EDT

The journalists at CBS This Morning on Monday leapt to cover illegally leaked tax documents, declaring they show Donald Trump to be a “flop of a businessman.” Guest co-host Josh Elliott played dumb and pretended he didn’t know why a mystery individual would have sent them to the New York Times.

Monday’s long New York Times front-page story by Megan Twohey, “Her Husband Accused of Affairs, a Defiant Clinton Fought Back,” is all too soft on Hillary Clinton, with the beginning especially tracking closely with Hillary’s preferred image as a long suffering victim of husband Bill’s infidelity. The names of two of Clinton's assault accusers, Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick, were totally omitted, making Bill's sexual history look more benign. But there are damning bits worth fishing out of the long piece, including her support of siccing attack-dog detective Jack Palladino on her husband's accusers.

If you wondered why Sunday evening television seemed so fun, and non-vomit inducing, it’s because CBS’s Madam Secretary was between seasons. But fear not, “Madam Hillary” is back, and they’re here to let you know that global warming will destroy the United States Navy. While President Dalton (Keith Carradine) struggles through his reelection bid, a naval base in Bahrain is hit with a tropical cyclone of epic proportions. Causing billions of dollars in damage, and at least one death.
