In today's "Andrea Mitchell Reports," the NBC cover-up was in full gear. Rather than own up to or apologize for yesterday's attempt to create a Romney gaffe out of what was later discovered by just a blogger to be a wildly misleading edit, Ms. Mitchell only said this:
"We ran clips of Mitt Romney in Cornwall, Pennsylvania, talking about his trip to WaWa. Well, the RNC and the campaign both reached out to us saying that Romney had more to say about that visit -- about federal bureaucracy and innovation in the private sector. We didn't get a chance to play that, so here it is now."
"We didn’t get a chance to play it" is a lie.
On its website, NBC News is even lying with this false headline: "Mitchell addresses criticism of Romney clip edit"
Uhm, no she didn't. If you weren't familiar with the controversy, you would think Mitchell was merely doing the Romney camp a favor by playing the clip. ......
Not surprisingly, out-of-touch is a narrative Obama would like to create around his rival, Mitt Romney.
Not surprisingly, NBC News would love to help Obama out with that.
And not surprisingly, the same NBC News that time and again has been caught using misleading edits to aid and abet Obama's reelection campaign has been caught doing so again.
In the past, NBC News would at least own up to these fabrications.

No editing is required to make Romney look dumb. Or Obama for that matter.
