Bill Clinton’s days as a womanizer go far back even before his days as Governor of Arkansas. THIS should change everything, but knowing the Clinton’s and the liberal MSM, it won’t. The Clintons have too much power and influence and anyone that goes against them, it doesn’t end well.
After receiving the legal letter, penned by Broaddrick’s attorney and son, Kevin L. Hickey, NBC removed the word “discredited” from the network’s Internet version of Mitchell’s video report, Broaddrick and Hickey told this reporter. However, NBC did not make any indication of the edit in the video or on the webpage that hosts it.
Nor did NBC fulfill Broaddrick’s request, which she says was communicated in the letter, for an apology from Mitchell on the “Today Show” as well as an acknowledgement on the show and on NBC’s website that there is no information that Broaddrick’s story has been discredited. Instead, a staffer from NBC informed Hickey that the “discredited” statement had been removed, Broaddrick and Hickey said.
“It is incredibly disappointing that NBC and Andrea Mitchell will not publicly apologize for this egregious error, especially considering that NBC has retroactively edited the online version of the story and taken out the word ‘discredited,’” Hickey told Breitbart News.
“Why not now go the extra step, the morally right step, and publicly acknowledge the mistake and publicly apologize?” he said.
“My mom’s credibility was just fine for Lisa Myers and NBC when the story was initially aired. Nothing has changed. Yet NBC apparently thinks it is okay to disparage a victim like this and then do nothing to rectify the situation.”
A spokesperson for NBC News did not return a Breitbart News request for comment.
In the initial segment, which can be seen below, Mitchell stated: “Donald Trump using that word unprompted, during an interview last night with Fox News’ Sean Hannity. Bringing up a discredited and long-denied accusation against former president Bill Clinton, dating back to 1978 when he was Arkansas Attorney General.”
Here’s the initial segment:
The scrubbed segment on NBC’s website, seen below, has Mitchell omitting the word “discredited” She now says: “Donald Trump using that word unprompted, during an interview last night with Fox News’ Sean Hannity. Bringing up (sic) long-denied accusation against former president Bill Clinton, dating back to 1978 when he was Arkansas Attorney General.”
Here’s the scrubbed video.
After filming the 1999 interview, NBC waited 35 days until finally airing the exclusive. The timeline is critical. The Senate voted to acquit Clinton in the impeachment case on Feb. 12. NBC’s interview, conducted January 20, 1999, did not run until Feb. 24, and the network placed it opposite the highly-rated Grammy Awards.
Speaking in 1999, NBC News vice president Bill Wheatley vehemently denied the network deliberately held the interview until after the Senate vote. He said NBC took the normal period of time for properly vetting stories. “There was no pressure from the White House, period. Nor as some were claiming was there any pressure from NBC or G.E. corporate higher-ups to kill the story,” said Wheatley.
Right! (wink! wink!) We get it!
If you follow the money you will find dozens of media organizations like NBC Universal and Turner Broadcasting, among others that have donated thousands to the Clinton Foundation. Don’t tell me it’s just a coincidence either. It’s all part of the game of politics – “pay to play”. The mainstream media is largely controlled by Soros and the gang and many just suck it up and pay the price. Bill and Hillary may come off like they support the “middle class” and fight for “fair share” – but the bottomline is they are filthy rich and really can’t relate to common folks like you and me. I mean come on – we’re talking about a net worth of over $111 million. Nothing really matters to them. They still think they can buy everything and pretty much have – including elections.
