CAUGHT: NBC Deletes Report Proving Trump’s Gun Violence Claims

M D Anderson | Regated

During the live broadcast of the NBC Nightly News, the network aired a report from Morgan Radford that detailed the shooting death of Nykea Aldridge, first cousin of NBA superstar Dwyane Wade, in Chicago. Radford’s report painted a grim picture of the gun violence epidemic in the windy city.

Aldridge was shot in the head while walking her baby in a stroller after registering her children at school. Radford described the event as one that “is all too common,” adding another child to the “hundreds of children, who [have] become casualties of Chicago’s violence.” Radford also explained that nearly half of the 449 shooting victims this year in Chicago have been children, many of them “struck while doing everyday kid stuff like riding with dad on father’s day, or even drawing on the sidewalk, or holding their mother’s hand.”

Georgetown Sociology Professor Michael Eric Dyson appeared in the report explaining the reality and extent of gun violence in the Black community:

It’s a stunning, astonishing, tragic number. The fact is, this is genocide before our very eyes, and we are turning a deaf ear and a blind eye to that.

Rosemary Scheckles, an eyewitness to the shooting, also appeared on camera, and said, “It’s like it’s no end to it. It just keeps going on and on and on and on.”

This eye opening report that appeared during the live broadcast of the NBC Nightly News, somehow did not make it to the online broadcast uploaded later on NBC News’ website. Indeed, on NBC News’ website, the video titled“Nightly News Full Broadcast (August 27th)”is, in fact, not the “full broadcast.”

I realized NBC had deleted this report from the broadcast when I went to go find the report to write a story about gun violence. I franticly watched and rewatched the broadcast on NBC News’ website wondering whether I had imagined the report.

Thankfully, I remembered the website Archive.org existed, a San Francisco nonprofit that has sought to digitize “all the books, music and video that has ever been produced by humans,”according to the Archive’s founder, Brewster Khale. This includes every major television news broadcast since 2009. It was here that I found a true and correct version of the live broadcast to confirm my sneaking suspicions: NBC News deleted the report.

  1. That pisses me off. NBC, care to elaborate on WHY you deleted the report. We the viewing audience deserve, want an explanation, so long as it’s real and the truth. Don’t want to about any chocolates being passed out.
