There are a few things in life you can always count on happening: taxes, rain, death, the sun rising and setting. Those are all normal. It’s also normal and pretty much a given to see CNN edit and censor certain parts of stories to make someone look better or to further their own agenda. That’s happened yet again, proving my point even further.
When the terrorist attacks in NY and NJ happened this weekend, Hillary Clinton was briefed and spoke for a short amount of time on the matter. During this short media questioning, Clinton responded to the bombings, but if you listened to CNN, the word “bombings” was taken out entirely. Here’s the report directly from Breitbart.
Tapper: There is a contrast, I would say, between how you’re speaking about it and how Mr. Trump spoke about it yesterday. He’s being criticized for talking about the New York bomb before local officials or local law enforcement had a chance to do so. He told the Colorado Springs crowd that “a bomb went off in New York, and nobody knows exactly what’s going on” — that’s really just a few minutes after the incident. And his opponent tried to draw a contrast. She waited hours later, until local officials spoke, and then she said this:
Clinton (clip): I think it’s important to know the facts about any incident like this. I think it’s always wiser to wait until you have information before making conclusions.
Tapper: As a general note, do you think politicians should wait until more information comes in, and should they defer to local official and investigators? Isn’t that what you do as the governor of New Jersey?
Tapper made no mention of Clinton’s similar remark.
Here is the full, relevant exchange between Clinton and reporters on Saturday night, via Liz Kreutz of ABC News and other sources:
Clinton: I’ve breen briefed about the bombings in New York and New Jersey, and the attack in Minnesota. Obviously, we need to do everything we can to support our first responders, also to pray for the victims. We have to let this investigation unfold. We’ve been in touch with various officials, including the mayor’s office in New York, to learn what they are discovering as they conduct this investigation. And I’ll have more to say about it when we actually know the facts?
Reporter: Secretary Clinton, Do you have any reaction to the fact that Donald Trump, immediately upon taking the stage tonight, called the explosion in New York a “bomb” … ?
Clinton: Well, I think it’s important to know the facts about any incident like this. That’s why it’s critical to support the first responders, the investigators who are looking into it, trying to determine what did happen. I think it’s always wiser to wait until you have information before making conclusions because we are just in the beginning stages of trying to determine what happened.
In fact, there video evidence to the fact that she DID say bombing. And here it is.
So why when Tapper was speaking to Christie censor the Clinton remark, but later in the evening when he spoke to Tim Kaine, Clinton’s running mate, he let the clip run as it was originally? Trump caught yet MORE flak from the liberal media for saying bombings, yet when Hillary does it, they edit it out and don’t say a damn thing about it?
Look, when you watch the news, there is no such thing as fair and balanced reporting, especially when it comes to Clinton. Fox News is probably the best you’ll get on TV. We’re here online to expose the frauds they all are. If you think CNN is deliberately manipulating news to make Hillary look better, share this and help us expose them.
