Looks like the flood…
Looks like the floodgates are starting to open. First it was Peter Collins, and now Bob Zelnick, who spent 21 years at ABC News. What he terms the “Peter Factor” caused scripts to be rewritten for either stylistic or editorial reasons. The former’s no big deal. The latter is bias.

Zelnick isn’t as critical of Jennings as Collins was (he suggests that other reports had successfully resisted the changing of their scripts), but any sort of attempt by someone to change the story of a reporter on the scene which changes the editorial or factual content is guilty of bias. It can go both ways, to be sure, but if you listen to liberals who defend the mainstream media, you’d think that something like this would be nigh unto impossible. It ain’t impossible, and I think we’re just catching the tip of the iceberg.
