NBC Airs Manipulated Romney Video, Refuses Apology
Three days after one of its highest-profile news anchors played manipulated video that made Mitt Romney appear out of touch with everyday voters, NBC officials seem content to let the controversy die down without an apology or explanation.
Other than issuing a terse, one-sentence statement late Tuesday afternoon, NBC has virtually ignored what the blogosphere dubbed “Wawagate.” The carefully-edited segment, aired on Monday’s edition of “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” spliced together a Romney speech, making it appear that he was expressing genuine amazement at a convenience store’s use of technology to take sandwich orders. In reality, he was facetiously comparing the tech-savvy private sector to the clumsy government bureaucracy.
