Iowa NBC-affiliate KWWL was subpoeaned for its “raw, unedited” footage of an interview with the mother of a missing child, Media Bistro’s TV Spy reported.

The mother, Misty Cook Morrissey, “stopped cooperating with the authorities investigating the case.”

According to TV Spy, all KWWL’s footage is online “because it is station policy to get rid of outtakes.”

The Des Moines Register reported that the station “turned over all raw and unedited footage.”  The station’s director, Dan Schillinger, is quoted as saying:  “Like everybody else, we want to do whatever we can to help find these girls. You don’t want to do anything that will compromise your objectivity, but that wasn’t a problem because we’d published everything.”
