A good primer for TV and audio cuts currently employed by the media.

There's a pretty thorough breakdown of a few different examples:

60 minutes interview with Julian Assange
60 minutes interview with Mark Zuckerberg
Ventura "Conspiracy" show interview with IPCC member, Santer
Documentary of Yonaguni structure - Lost civilization or underwater land formation?

TV tricks of the trade -- Quotes and cutaways - YouTube

It's pretty clear by looking at these examples, that there is not enough accountability to ensure TV cuts are made simply for time reasons and not to actually change the message of those interviewed.
