The media has shown even great disgust for the democratic process as they blur the shirt of a police officer who saved a baby from a hot car. The man was proudly wearing a Trump shirt and HLN felt they had to censor that message during the interview.
According to The Blaze:
The retired New Jersey police officer who saved a baby locked in a hot car has been making the media rounds, including on HLN.
But it wasn’t just the heroic rescue itself that made headlines after he appeared on CNN’s sister channel.
During a live interview that aired Wednesday, the retired officer, Steven Eckel, wore a “Trump for President” T-shirt.
However, when the story re-aired later in the day, Eckel’s shirt was blurred out.
Here’s the uncensored interview:
And here’s the censored segment:
HLN said in a statement Thursday afternoon that the image was blurred “in error.”
HLN spokeswoman's response: "We blurred the logo and shouldn’t have; it was done in error." https://t.co/a3tn26RwKv

As the Daily Caller noted, the move came just days after HLN announced it was canceling Dr. Drew Pinsky’s show. Pinsky recently questioned the quality of Hillary Clinton’s health care, saying he was “gravely concerned” about the “1950s level” care the candidate was receiving.
It’s fascinating to see how panicky the media is becoming toward the Trump phenomenon. Mr. Trump has clearly struck a nerve and has started a strong sense of rebellion and awareness among the voters.
So, it comes as no surprise that they are trying to squash support for him at every turn. And with the recent firing of Dr. Drew for daring to question Hillary’s health. It’s clear to see that the fix is in.
Time will tell whether Mr. Trump can defy the odds, but he’s certainly fighting a vast army of opposition in the media.
