One of my favorite times of the day is the early morning hour…just around 5am when the cell doors are unlocked. Cleaning time, showers, getting ready for work, and the early morning news on the common-area TVs.As a former professional journalist, I like to think of myself as a discerning viewer.
One my favorite games: Viewing the raw footage early, and then catching the edited form later. At times the differences are quite remarkable. Such as one morning during the final assault by the ATF and FBI on the Waco Compound.
The early news showed the para-military gov’t agents surrounding the compound shouting with glee, high-fiving each other as the main building burned. There were descriptions of survivors being gunned down as they tried to escape the flames. Later in the day, all that was edited out.
