Did News & Observer edit video to protect a candidate?
UPSTAGED: The News & Observer inexplicably cut this still photo into its video of demonstrators at a U.S. senate candidate Kay Hagan speech.

Raleigh, N.C. – Advocates of more liberal immigration policies took the stage with U.S. senate candidate Kay Hagan at an Oct. 26 campaign stop.
Two problems here: they weren’t invited speakers, and the Charlotte News & Observer apparently handled the problem by deleting the interruption.
Go to this blog post and look at the unedited video and and you’ll see so-called DREAMers holding up protest signs and then walking on stage while Hagan tries to speak. Hagan’s handlers make weak attempts to stop them, but in the end Hagan just ends her talk.
