Skip to comments.Andrea Mitchell: NBC Hasn't "Authenticated" Obama Redistribution Clip, Won't Air
Posted on 09/19/2012 10:42:07 AM PDT by nhwingut
On her MSNBC program this afternoon, NBC News' Andrea Mitchell said the network would not air the clip of then-State Senator Barack Obama endorsing redistribution in 1988 because the network could not "authenticate" the clip.
"Let's explain this redistribution issue because we have not authenticated this 14-year-old tape from Loyola College when Barack Obama was a state senator. So because we have not independently at NBC news and MSNBC authenticated it, we're not airing it," Mitchell said.
"But the basic issue is they're accusing President Obama, as John Sununu said to be yesterday, of class warfare. That is trying to change the subject," Mitchell added.

Why am I not surprised?
It’s OK Andi, the White House confirmed it yesterday.
Didn’t stop the media from going wide with the redacted tape from Jimmy Carter’s grandson.
To mention it is to affirm it, Hussein Heads.
Don’t worry Andrea. Fox will air it and millions of viewers will see it.
This is the same network who couldn’t wait to paint the nutcase Loughner as a Tea Partier, right?
What a joke. Seriously, how do they look themselves in the mirror????
I hope her salary is the first one redistributed!
[[because the network could not “authenticate” the clip.]]
Hmmm- but apaprently they have no problems airing crap they make up abotu Mitt and never ‘authenticate’ their strories abnoutr him first-
Yep- there’s ‘absolutely no bias in tmedia’ So say the media!
Andrea Mitchell’s nose is so far up Obama’s ass that she has forgotten what daylight looks like.
The left wing media should be tried as war criminals after the Second American Revolution. They are the propaganda arm of the Democrat party, and have done incalculable damage to this country.
This stupid two faced bit-h. Not authenticating a video or statement doesn’t stop her or NBC, MSNBC etc from putting on a statement/video of a Republican. Did they authenticate the video of Romney’s 47% statement before they aired it? NO. Mother Jones is even saying now that it was edited and not complete. I guess what Mitchell means is NBC hasn’t had time to edit it to make it as bad as possible for Romney. Remember the Zimmerman tape.
Obama: redistribution of wealth is economic justice
too bad it’s on tape, presstitutes
Maybe Andrea, if you got the date correct, "1998," you could "authenticate," the video.
Just trying to help you out, Andrea.
LOL LOL LOL LOL..OMG..NBC..thank you, I needed the laughs..oh come on NBC release the tape, the idiots who watch your network will stand up and applaud anyway. Its not like MSDNC viewers are not for redistribution of wealth anyway
How many times has NBC been embarrassed when they rushed to air with phony-baloney made-up nonsemse simply because it was injurious to a Republican politician, or because it hurt the interests of the United States.
The pigs at NBC/MSNBC/GE/Comcast should be the first ones up against the wall when the game begin.
But can’t they pull a Dan rather and refer to them as “fake but accurate”???
Rush just said the White House has confirmed that the tape is of Obama. So, take that, beyotch.
Of course, Andrea ‘the Red’ Mitchell, would air any tape about Romney without authenticating it, even when it was doctored.
Is that fair to those 11 people watching?
Remember, a while back it was revealed that the administration approves the quotes used by the press. Apparently this did not pass inspection with the administration.
Isn’t Andrea the one who played that blatantly doctored tape of Romney at the Wa Wa store?
and here I thought that as long as a journalist could get a search return on google that was good enough verification
To Miss Andrea Dispicible. You have NEVER Authenticated Obama's passport, SSI number, College Transcripts, reason he surrendered his Law License or history as a "Organizer".. But you damned sure have carried his water for almost 5 years now!
Here is her Twitter account...she usually posts about 7 times a day on it...so she DOES use it.
Here is the MSNBC one too...have at it ya’ll!
Redistribution is the subject. Whadda twunt.
Tell them what you think and expose them for the Media Bias that they are in front of their fans
So will the boney Mrs. Alan Greenspan tell her tiny audience that there are 1 or two minutes of the Romney tape missing, so it’s authenticity is highly questionable? (crickets>>>>)
This was 13 years ago when Mitt was a pro-choice liberal.:(
It scares me becuase there is plenty on Romney in late 90’s! :(
“Jay Carney today refused to refute statements Barack Obama made in a 1998 interview where he promoted redistribution of wealth. Jay Carney would not distance the administration from Obamas comments.”
show the clip and stfu.
But they will air a story about Mitt Romney based on a video clip with two minutes missing right after his supposed verbal infraction. For all NBC knew, Romney made extended remarks that could easily have cleared up any misconception in the video.
So Mitchel trying to act as if she has journalistic integrity, is preposterous.
Shameless. Disgusting. You name it.
Thanks for the MSNBC twitter link!

2, To confirm as to be in agreement with an extreme liberal agenda, e.g., "NBC wouldn't authenticate the video because it didn't agree with their propoganda agenda".
So because we
have not independently at NBC news and MSNBC authenticated it, are so deeply partisan, so firmly up the butt of President Barack Obama, that we would make Pravda blush, we're not airing it," Mitchell said.
Corrected for grammar and punctuation.
How did they “authenticate” the romney tape? face it — we are renegades of freedom in a corrupt country.
From the book of John:
17.For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life. Except for Andrea Mitchell, God thinks she sucks.
18. He that believeth on him is not judged: he that believeth not hath been judged already, because he hath not believed on the name of the only begotten Son of God. Andrea Mitchell is the exception, no matter what, she's screwed. That's because Jesus HATES Andrea Mitchell.
Andrea is a slut.
the GOP needs to get all the press and give a statement about this bias once and for all.
They need to mention this , last weeks attacks, the bias and ask the media why they will not cover or question or air certain topics and facts.
Get them all on live camera so there is no editing and tell them enough is enough.
We already have media matters working with the DOJ and yet nothing.
CALL THE DAMN PRESS CONFERENCE
Every republican now shoudl be told to mention their bias in every interview and ask them why they refuse to cover why obama went ot Vegas after the attacks, etc.
Hey Andrea Bitchell, remember that NBC video of the GM trucks blowing up on side impacts that had explosives in the fuel tanks? Well, this may blow up in your face.
I don’t know how to “tweet” but from what I see it looks like the only people responing are insiders”
Or, would I see something different when I register?
Her DNC tweet was comedy gold: “It will rain during your speech. Good job Obama and committee for moving indoors!”
Of course it didn’t rain at all during the speech.
