A St. Louis attorney approached CNN with audio that the attorney said contains the moments when Michael Brown was shot to death by a police officer on the street in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9.
CNN was not able to verify whether the audio was in fact real, or even whether it is the actual moment of Brown's shooting. They trusted the attorney who brought them the audio.
Would you trust the attorney?
Apparently, CBS News was also approached with the audio but declined to air it because they could not verify what they heard on the clip.
Would you broadcast the audio?
If you do broadcast it, is it acceptable to put the disclaimer on it saying that you could not verify whether the audio was real?
