No Apology from Andrea Mitchell or MSNBC

Via Politico:

On her show today, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell responded to criticism of the network’s decision to run an edited tape of Mitt Romney’s remarks about the WaWa convenience store chain, but the network has not clarified why it ran the edited version of the tape.

“We ran clips of Mitt Romney in Cornwall, Pennsylvania, talking about his trip to a WaWa,” Mitchell said. “Well, 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. We didn’t get a chance to play that, so here it is now.”

Mitchell’s response did not satisfy many critics, especially those on the right, who saw it as a non-apology.

And they thought this would make it go away? So stupid of Mitchell and MSNBC.
