CNN Censors Footage of Bill Maher Outing Ken Mehlman

As noted by some of Towleroad’s readers in the comments section, CNN edited the west coast feed of Larry King Live and cut out Bill Maher’s comments outing RNC Chair Ken Mehlman. Thanks to John at AmericaBlog for the clips… First clip is the original, second is the edited version.

Who is CNN trying to protect?

UPDATE: As you’ll see the above video on the left is gone from YouTube. CNN sent out a cease and desist letter to YouTube, ordering them to take the uncensored version down. The uncensored version is still up at the Huffington Post.

Shame on CNN.
