Skip to comments.Andrea Mitchell: NBC Hasn't "Authenticated" Obama Redistribution Clip, Won't Air
Posted on 09/19/2012 11:08:05 AM PDT by justlittleoleme
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.

anyone else notice how white Obama sounds in the tape?
How do you suppose they “authenticated” the Romney tape about 47% victims/dependent on welfare?
Gee, I thought she was a reporter, not a pundit.
What a surprise. :)
So are they going to authenticate it on, what, Nov. 7th?
It’s got to be more and more difficult to get up off your knees as you continue to age, Andrea...
That explains why they won’t air Obama’s records.
So, while our embassies are burning around the world, an edited, out-of-context, private comment by Romney is all the networks talk about 24/7, but a communistic policy statement by Obama is “changing the subject.” Meanwhile, if the failure to authenticate the tape was really the issue, wouldn’t she have added, “yet?”
Hey Andrea, you biased dumbass He said directly to Joe The Plumber “Redistribution of wealth is a good thing”
Well, the Romney tape was unearthed by a “respected” source, Jimmuh Carter’s own kin.
Seriously, I was thinking the EXACT same thing when I read the headline about “knee-pad” Mitchell’s comment.
There’s virtually no difference between NBC and MSNBC. Both are journalistic latrine pits.
What’s with all the old white people on the Nothing But Crap network?
You mean, Mrs. Greenspan, don’t you?
F’ing creepy how cozy it all is back there.
Ha! Did they authenticate and hold the Romney tape to the same standard?? We all just found out that the Romney tape is missing 2 minutes. Unbelievable.
