My thinking was that only important political news was "possibly" scripted since many of the same words were used. However, in this montage, even the humdrum news has a "nation-wide" script to overly manage the message... Really???!!!??? is that necessary?
Not uncommon for the news media to cut segments to the bare minimum. However, the meaningful content should remain. Professional standards of News gathering and reporting must be upheld. CBS has done neither in this case. They took out a Freudian slip, not because it was meaningless, but because it raised more questions.
