    It seems to me that we keep repeating the same conversations over the same erroneous transcripts over and over again, and I think we need a general erratum thread so that we have a place where we can refer back to whenever the same issue pops up again.

    I'm thinking any controversy about similar things could also go in this thread.

    --------

    What Teresa really said about the bus stop:

    Snippet from transcript of Nancy Grace show 2/17/09
    http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0902/17/ng.01.html


    It's hard to hear because Nancy speaks on top of her but TN says "my son picked her up". It's at the very end of this video.

    ------

    And another: Did Ronald say his cousin was there or not?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIdhmJ_uxtg&feature=player_embedded#!

    He's hard to hear again but a lot of people thought that Ronald actually says, "cousin wasn't there", or wuddn't (southern) (at about 7:18)

    The "my cousin wuddn't there" makes more sense than "... went in there."
    I've heard that fractured contraction all my life, too. I sometimes slip and say it myself.
    gasp!

    Sometimes southerners will say "my cousin weren't in there" too.

    IMO

    The dispute is what TN says: She says "the cousin"......the question should be why did Ron personalize it and make it about MY cousin? Whether that cousin "went" or "wuddn't" there......Teresa first said "the cousin."

    For whatever it's worth, I don't hear Ron saying "my cousin", I'd have said he says "cousin wasn't there", or "the cousin".

    --------

    Here's another one that got wings:

    Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community - View Single Post - Hypnosis transcription

    This is from Misty's hypnosis transcript here on WS which I often refer back to.
    http://www.wftv.com/video/20605182/index.html

    However, bessie pointed out that if you watch the video
    http://www.wftv.com/video/20605182/index.html
    she doesn't actually say Haleigh was doing great, she says "Haleigh was doing her...", checks herself and starts to talk about the wheelies.
    At 26:05.

    I know of two: Hope Sykes, who was caught up in the drug sting and is serving 15 years, and Jason S. the son of Uncle Donald and Aunt Lisa/Elisa-- Teresa's brother and SIL. mo
