I thought this was kind of funny in how blatantly obvious it is the media is in it for hillary.

A good samaritan gave an interview on HLN (a CNN affiliate) and they blurred his Trump 2016 shirt.


Trump supporter Steve Eckel, a retired New Jersey police officer, learned of a 4-month-old baby locked in a car alone in a Kohl's parking lot, according to the New York Daily News.

Eckel called 911 and proceeded to use a sledgehammer to break a window and rescue the baby. 

HLN — a cable news channel owned by Turner Broadcasting, a division of Time Warner — spoke to Eckel on the air. He wore a shirt supporting the GOP presidential nominee during that live interview.

But in a replay of the interview an hour later, HLN blurred the shirt.

"We blurred the logo and shouldn’t have; it was done in error,” an HLN spokesperson tells The Hill.



In error, oh ok.

Regardless, it's a good story and kudos to the man for saving the helpless child.

No real fan of CNN and by extension HLN...but they did the right thing in luring out the trump supporter t shirt....Yes?
Should be the same if someone had HRC t shirt...or you trying to say that CNN/HLN is in HRC's pocket?
Cheers

We know the man is a Trump supporter and a good guy. I do not know why it was blurred out in the second showing, maybe there is a thing about 'logos' and someone pushed the wrong button?

Regardless, we know, Steve Eckol is a hero and also a Trump supporter.

How big of an audience does HLN have, that blurring it out in the second showing, that it would cause a problem?

That is what he is saying, LOL. That it is a MASSIVE conspiracy against Trump. And THIS is PROOF.

Unless it was obscene..My next best guess would not be error, but advertising revenue. HLn and everyone else is looking for Ad revenues from the campaigns right now...No Free advertising!!

I`d probably buy that if they didn't admit it was done in error.

Yep some people that participate in forum chat feel obligated to attempt to demean people to strengthen their own persona.

To your post...I think its laughable as well.

Isn't it fairly normal for a copyrighted slogan or design to be blurred out in interviews? I always assumed it was done to avoid any possibility of a lawsuit for unlawful use of a copyrighted slogan or emblem. I've seen it done lots of times when someone was wearing a band T or slogan in an interview and it was blurred out. I'm guessing someone in the editing room decided to play it safe.

Thank you for sharing this. I just shared the link to the video on social media because this is a great example of the censorship and bias we are seeing from the mainstream media. Kudos to you!!

They're saying the media supports Hillary. They're saying this was a political move rather than an editorial one.
Never mind that trump takes up 35 minutes out of every news hour around the clock.

HLN admitted they made an error, so it would appear thete is no such issue.

What happened to the "the media is in it for Hillary" part? You opened with it. They said it was an error now what?

Guess they're not in it for her.

The DNC admitted to media influence when they got exposed.
