In an interview with Charlie Rose of Clinton Broadcasting System News, “Bubba” Clinton caught himself. Asked if the wobbliness of his wife in New York after a 9/11 memorial event was reflective of something more grave, he drolly answered:
“Well, if it is, it’s a mystery to me and all of her doctors because frequently—well, not frequently, rarely—but on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing’s happened to her when she just got severely dehydrated."
The network deceptively edited out “well, not frequently” from the clip which aired on CBS This Morning for their evening news segment cutting to a reverse shot of Rose nodding to cover up the jump.
Choosing to edit out something that newsworthy brought a firestorm of criticism for the network forcing them to issue a statement:
The clip in question from former President Clinton’s interview with Charlie Rose ran in its entirety on CBS THIS MORNING, CBSNews.com and on CBSN, CBS News’ 24/7 digital streaming news service. One clip that ran on CBS Evening News was edited purely for time while on deadline for the live broadcast.
Do go on CBS. Tell me more about how two, maybe three seconds, were crucial to your deadline.
The network could have employed the magic of the “greenscreen” superimposing the office window and the little side table seen in the clip to obliterate Hillary in the background slopped up on the couch in her PJs drinking plenty of
vodka fluids to rehydrate herself.
One thing’s for certain, Bubba got a frying pan upside his noggin when he got home that night for blabbing the wrong thing.
Granny is supposed to return to the campaign trail today. With Granny out of the house Bubba can get back to “dicking bimbos at home.”
