Mitchell Won’t Play ‘Redistribution’ Clip

UPDATE: MSNBC anchor says audio not 'authenticated,' but OFA confirmed it was real to WaPo


Update (1:57 p.m.): The Obama campaign confirmed to the Washington Post on Tuesday that the clip was Obama speaking in 1998.

MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell said she would not air a 1998 audio clip featuring Barack Obama speaking in favor of wealth redistribution because it had not been authenticated by MSNBC.

MSNBC, however, actually played the clip earlier in the day during “Daily Rundown.”
