Justice gave White House time to destroy records - NPR buries story (english)
03 Oct 2003
On Oct 2nd, Nina Totenberg reported on NPR that the Justice Dept. granted a White House request to delay an order to preserve records for the criminal investigation on the CIA agent's exposure. NPR then deleted the report from the show's transcript.
CIA Exposure Scandal: Justice Granted White House Delay on Preserving Records for Investigation
Nina Totenberg Reports on NPR, which then deletes revelation from show's transcript
On October 2nd, Nina Totenberg reported on Morning Edition that
the Justice Department granted a White House request to delay a directive to
preserve its records as part of the CIA exposure scandal.  Then, NPR deletes her report from its
transcript of the show.

Why did NPR delete what was clearly the most interesting (as well
as the most damaging) part of Nina Totenberg's interview on Morning Edition?
Thanks to Robert E. Reynolds for transcribing the lost
segment.  Thanks to
for posting Reynolds' work. Traprock discovered the NPR deletion when it
followed Reynolds' advice to purchase the transcript of the show, only to find
that Totenberg's report on the cooperation between the White House and the
Justice Department had been deleted from the transcript.

Luckily, NPR had neglected to delete the report from the
audio.  You can hear the audio of
the missing report at Traprock's site -****
