Tonight, CBS aired a 60 Minutes interview with President Obama. But curiously enough, the news magazine show did not air a clip of Obama admitting to interviewer Steve Kroft that some of his campaign ads contain mistakes and that some even "go overboard."
60 Minutes did, however, post the clip online:
CBS describes the clip this way: "President Obama says some of his campaign ads might 'go overboard' or contain mistakes, but most of them simply highlight the differences between him and Gov. Romney."
"Look, the fact-checkers have had problems with the ads on both sides," Kroft says to Obama in the unaired clip, "and say they've been misleading and in some cases just not true. Does that disturb you? I mean, some of them are your ads."
Obama responds: "Do we see sometimes us going overboard in our campaign, are there mistakes that are made, areas where there is no doubt somebody could dispute how we are presenting things? You know, that happens in politics."
Kroft responds: "Aren't the American entitled to the truth? Or a better version of it?"

CBS, through partisanship and avoidance of the truth, is another group complicit in the fall of the great nation of America. For what? A short term gain for themselves to live in outrageous and splendid houses on the seashore on some island when the civil unrest or war breaks out here because the entitlements cannot be met? Who on earth are these people who do the planning at this and other propagandistic networks? Are they all sequestered over in the wealthy Connecticut communities or in the Hamptons? Do they think their own safety and well being can be secured when their dishonesty comes into full maturity and this country dissolves into chaos? I suspect most of them, as children of the wealthy graduates of Harvard, Columbia or one of the other Ivy League Socialist conclaves, think they are immortally protected against what the rest of us will suffer. They are the rich who will get their eyes opened when it is too late.
