NBC tells Obama not to use footage
By DYLAN BYERS | 10/6/12 1:47 PM EDT
In a letter sent Friday night to Obama campaign manager Jim Messina, NBC told the Obama campaign to cease using network footage in a new 30-second spot, released shortly after Wednesdays debate, in which Andrea Mitchell is shown on air citing an independent, stating that Mitt Romneys tax plan would cost $4.8 trillion over 10 years, a source said.
NBC News has not granted any campaign permission to use our news material. As is our practice, we have requested that the Obama campaign refrain from using NBC News material in this and future advertisements, the network said in a statement.

The tide is turning ? or are they trying to find more under handed ways to cheat and look unbiased ?
They’re scrambling like the Rats they are, folks. I think we’ll see much more of this CYA action, as the Omedia tries
to look “unbiased”. Their ship is sinking. What a joke!
They want to prevent RR from using their materials, and one way to do so is to tell both campaigns not using anything from them.
They want access to he new admin.
” They want access to he new admin. “ ..... Illegals Amnesty ?
Bottom line....Obama has no message and the last 3.5 years have been hell....
Their “news footage” is one big campaign commercial for the Dems, regardless of whether the Dems use them in their own commercials. They are pretending to appear neutral.
Wouldn’t such use be covered by the fair use doctrine? They don’t have a legal right to stop the O. campaign from using it do they?
“They want access to the new admin.”
Too late. They’re officially the O-media.
The tide isn’t turning. The National Barack Channel needs to keep up the ruse of being an objective news source for a month. You can bet that Andrea Mitchell was thrilled. Basically, all they’re doing is stringing together sound bytes for Obama ads.
NBC growing an ethics bone? Bull cookies. They are the pretentious, slobbering propaganda arm of the DNC and a tax write-off for GE. Just another tale told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
Could be used as evidence in the upcoming Zimmerman case?
Andrea looks pissed. “WHY are you wearing MY top?”
GE sold NBC Universal to Comcast.
NBC et al are the tool of the liberal comcast management doing th ebidding of the DNC
Comcast is the enemy.
This follows the hardcore leftists at AARP objecting to the Obama campaign using their name in ads!
Rats... sinking ship...
The NY Times cable TV ad currently running shows a copy of the paper with a picture of Obama and the headline "Economy Improves".
The MSM is evil, not only because of what they do but because they claim a profession and history that is counter to what they do.
They are still using it. I saw it on Saturday Night here in Atlanta on ESPN watchin the FL state game..
