ABC News Openly Admits It Censored Its Interview With RFK Jr.

In his very lengthy speech announcing his run for president as a Democrat, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. spoke about issues few in the political world will touch. 

"This is what happens when you censor somebody for 18 years," he said. "I got a lot to talk about, and they shut me up that long ... now I'm going to really let loose on them. So, the next 18 months, they're going to hear a lot from me." 

The only problem, he's realizing, is that the media isn't happy to go along with that plan. 

After airing a pre-taped interview with Kennedy Jr., "ABC News Live" anchor Linsey Davis told viewers that it had censored some of what he said.

"We should note that during our conversation, Kennedy made false claims about the COVID-19 vaccines," she explained. "Data shows that the COVID-19 vaccine has prevented millions of hospitalizations and deaths from the disease," the anchor continued. "He also made misleading claims about the relationship between vaccination and autism. Research shows that vaccines and the ingredients used in the vaccines do not cause autism, including multiple studies involving more than a million children and major medical associations like the American Academy of Pediatrics and the advocacy group Autism Speaks.

"We've used our editorial judgment in not including extended portions of that exchange in our interview. We thank Mr. Kennedy for the conversation." 

But as critics pointed out, viewers were unable to assess his claims because ABC News censored them.

Others noted how government officials were guilty of spreading COVID misinformation.
