MSNBC Accused of Omitting Religious Message From Ben Breedlove's Viral Video
MSNBC might have skipped one of key points from Ben Breedlove's viral video. During a televised news broadcast, the network reported on the late 18-year-old boy whose final clip gained attention following his death on Christmas Day.
The cable channel played some parts from Ben's clip in which he shared his experience in cheating death. Towards the end of it, the teen showed a message card read, "Do you believe in Angels or God?" The MSNBC segment, however, faded it out just as Ben was about to show another card read, "I do."
Noting that the MSNBC segment seemed to edit out Ben's admission of faith in God, Daily Rushbo downloaded video of the live broadcast from the network's website, before it posted a revised version to show the "I do" card. It is unclear, however, whether the fade out was accidental or intentional.
