ABC News is being accused of selective editing following the release of an interview with former President Barack Obama. The recently aired interview on Good Morning America shows Obama scolding Republicans over immigration reform.

However, analysts quickly pointed out the news network excluded Obama’s warning about open borders. ABC ultimately conceded and included the clip online, eventually airing it, but not until late in the night.

Media analyst warned exclusion of this soundbite is the mainstream media’s use of “blatant editing and omission.”
