Yesterday, LA’s venerable Channel Five ran a report on the sighting of a 20 foot Great White Shark by a group of boaters off Venice Beach. While their report hosted by the venerable Ogla Ospina sounded the alarm to all foolish enough to enter waters not encased in concrete in their own backyard or rec center, the report hid the full truth from KTLA News’ viewers.
The report shows viewers a very selectively edited audio-free snippet of the shark gliding by the boat. We were curious why viewers were allowed such a small taste of what must have been a longer video, so we turned to YouTube and in a Native Angeleno exclusive investigation, tracked down the raw footage, which we share with you for the first time on this site, after the jump.
