Cindy Hady’s comments were in no way manipulated, just shortened, as is the case during the editing process of every news story. In fact, Mrs. Hady misquotes herself and our story in her letter. Here is the actual verbatim from the script portion in which she appeared:
Reporter: "At the polls, voters toppled the Democratic domination, with Republicans winning an estimated 28 seats in the Senate and 62 in the House. Not surprising to some."
Hady: "Understandably, I think people, especially if you're without work and all of that, are. We need to do something."
Reporter: "Disappointing for Democrats and Obama fans."
Hady: "We're very supportive of our president, but there's a huge challenge ahead."
We in no way misrepresented Hady's political affiliation or opinions. There was no agenda for this story. We spoke to Democrats, Republicans and a political scientist to put the election results in perspective.
We urge people to view the story and judge for themselves. Here is the link: http://tinyurl.com/25klatu.
