Amusing: NBC Tells Obama Campaign to Stop Using Their Footage

Posted by on Oct 06, 2012 at 9:56 pm

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:

    Hey Andrea,
    Romney only exposed what you and the rest of the media failed to do and that was EXPOSE Obama for who he really is:inexperienced,weak,timid,incompetent,and unfit to lead this nation.Romney showed he has the skills, experience and toughness to be a leader of a nation.Look at the state of our nation.This is what happens when you elect an inexperienced community organizing Marxist radical to lead the free world.Total failure!

    The Obama campaign also claims to have a nearly $1 BILLION dollar war chest as of Sept.

    I find this Obama campaign total to be highly dubious in light of the fact that in 2008 – during the fever pitch of ‘hope n change’ – the COMBINED amount raised by McCain AND Obama camps was $1.1 billion, which made 2008 the most expensive purchase of the W.H. EVUH.

    And here it is, 4 years later, in the aftermath of the Great Recession, during the WORST recovery since WWII, with Obama approval numbers below 50, swing states still in contention, polls even, within error margin, and the Obama camp is claiming a war chest of almost $1 billion.

    I find this Obama campaign total to be highly dubious. Time will tell.
