Regarding the Alabama "60 Minutes" Civil Rights Footage Cut

I almost don't want to draw more attention to this article (y'know, in case it really was an equipment malfunction), but the circumstancial evidence that Alabama television station WHNT (or some combination of employees therein) cut civil rights footage and tape depicting their former governor out of a Feb. 24 broadcast seems incontrovertible.

Still, the circumstances of the event point toward a single culprit, not toward station culpability. Consider: following public outcry the station re-broadcast the segment twice over the following days. This is whatcha call a "self-correcting problem."
