In an emotional message during her husband’s funeral at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Friday, Dominique Luzuriaga, the widow of slain 22-year-old NYPD Detective Jason Rivera, blasted Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg for his weak-on-crime policies getting her husband killed. But despite how powerful a moment it was, ABC’s World News Tonight completely omitted her scathing rebuke of the radical-leftist DA who lets criminals walk the streets even with weapons charges.
“The pictures today, a mile-long sea of blue filling the streets for 22-year-old Jason Rivera. And the emotional moment when we heard from the rookie officer's young wife,” announced ABC anchor David Muir.
In the report submitted by Phil Lipof, it was clear they only wanted to use her emotion to sensationalize their report.
