This is odd considering NBS News is basically an arm of the Obama campaign.
NBC has asked President Barack Obama’s campaign to stop using the network’s footage in a recently released reelection ad, POLITICO has learned.
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 Wednesday’s debate, in which Andrea Mitchell is shown on air citing an independent, stating that Mitt Romney’s tax plan would cost $4.8 trillion over 10 years, a source said.
It could be they don’t want any further embarrassment having people see Mitchell’s falsehoods being promoted. In the meantime, the hack is still lamenting Obama’s humiliating defeat Wednesday night. Remember, this supposedly is a journalist:
How many voters will see Obama ads and speeches attacking Romney facts? Not the 70m who’d have seen if POTUS had done it in the debate
