Mitchell on mischaracterized Romney clip: ‘We didn’t get a chance to play’ full clip


Andrea Mitchell did “address” the selective editing of a Mitt Romney clip Tuesday — by saying the show “didn’t get a chance to play” the rest of the mischaracterized clip and moving on to another topic.

MSNBC told Politico’s Dylan Byers Tuesday Mitchell would “address” the editing of a clip that featured Romney speaking on WaWa convenience stores and bureaucratic inefficiency. The editing of the MSNBC clip implied Romney had never seen touchscreen technology.

“The RNC and the campaign both reached out to us saying that Romney had more to say about that visit, about federal bureaucracy and innovation in the private sector,” Mitchell said Tuesday. “We didn’t get a chance to play that, so here it is now.”
