ABC covered up Clinton gaffe
I tuned in to WJR in Detroit today to hear the Rush Limbaugh show and found that they were covering the Rosa Parks funeral. At that time, I heard Bill Clinton making some remarks and he referred to her as Rosa Park - dropping the "s". I thought at the time that had George Bush said it, the media would make a fuss about it saying that Bush was so insensitive that he didn't bother to get her name right.
At the top of the next hour, I heard the ABC newscast and they had a short item on the Rosa Parks coverage and included some remarks by Bill Clinton. It happened to be the same remark I had heard earlier, but something had changed. This time, there was a momentary pause and he clearly said "Parks" with an "s". I think that someone at ABC altered the tape to spare Clinton the embarassment of mispronouncing Rosa Parks' name.
