CBS news was caught red-handed selectively editing a Bill Clinton interview to smooth over his comments about Hillary’s “frequent” fainting spells.
The network’s explanation? They cut the word out “for time.”
An edit to a CBS “Evening News” broadcast that cut out Bill Clinton saying that his wife “frequently” suffers bouts of extreme dehydration was done for timing reasons, a spokesman for the network told the Washington Examiner.
“The clip in question from former President Clinton’s interview with Charlie Rose ran in its entirety on CBS ‘This Morning,’ CBSNews.com and on CBSN, CBS News’ 24/7 digital streaming news service,” said Richard Huff, the network’s communications executive director. “One clip that ran on CBS ‘Evening News’ was edited purely for time while on deadline for the live broadcast.”
Really? How much time can a word possibly take up, a second or two?
This excuse is pathetic. The mainstream media is truly shameless when it comes to doing damage control for the Clinton campaign.
