Cameraman’s HOT MIC audio leaked after Reuters is accused of cutting live feed for Trump blessing

Now the truth comes out! and it’s “incredible, outrageous, sad, dangerous, unacceptable (but not a surprise).”

We already know that the live feed to Donald Trump’s speech at a Detroit black congregation was mysteriously cut just as an African-American bishop was blessing the Republican presidential nominee, but there is more to the story.

It was reported on Twitter that a Reuters staffer was caught on a hot microphone ordering the camera man to shut down the live feed.

As Detroit Bishop Wayne Jackson was giving Trump a Jewish prayer shawl and Bible at the Great Faith Ministries, you can hear a cameraman’s initial reluctance to shut down.

“I’m shooting this, I don’t care what they say,” the voice can faintly be heard saying in the background at about the one-minute mark, according to the person who posted the video. “I’ll take a demotion for this…. you?”

Finally, at about the 1:20 mark. you can just barely hear the order, “Shut it, yeah,” then, “Yes Michael, do it!”

Is this Reuters’ idea of “fair and balanced?”

It didn’t take long for word to spread on social media. Although few were surprised, none were happy.

A few claimed it was Trump’s campaign people who ordered the shut-down — not Reuters.
