For the latest example why much of the US population has lost trust in the mainstream media, consider today’s snafu in which CBS News was caught editing a video clip and transcript to remove a Bill Clinton comment that Hillary Clinton “frequently” fainted in the past.
Bill Clinton sat down with CBS’s Charlie Rose on Monday to try to clear the air around questions regarding his wife’s health after she collapsed while getting into a van at a 9/11 memorial ceremony on Sunday. It didn’t quite work out as desired.
As the Daily Caller reported first, when asked if there was any chance her faintness on Sunday could be a sign of some more “serious” illness, Clinton said he did not believe that was the case.
“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 happened to her when she got severely dehydrated, and she’s worked like a demon, as you know, as secretary of State, as a senator and in the year since.”
However, the final edit of the “CBS Evening News” version cut Clinton’s use of “frequently” out. Furthermore, according to a review by The Hill of the official transcript released by the network shows that Clinton saying “Frequently – well, not frequently,” is omitted as well.
