Attorney General William Barr did it. This video just provided the ultimate proof, but it isn’t Barr who is in trouble. A major anti-Trump news outlet has been caught in the act lying about Barr.
“Earlier today, we inadvertently and inaccurately cut short a video clip of an interview with AG Barr before offering commentary and analysis,” admitted NBC News on Twitter this week.
“The remaining clip included important remarks from the attorney general that we missed, and we regret the error,” the statement continued. DOJ spokeswoman Kerri Kupec called out the error publicly.
In fact, that’s why NBC News was prompted to say anything in the first place. Kupec made it clear that she was “very disappointed by the deceptive editing/commentary” delivered by host Chuck Todd.
But what exactly happened? Well, reportedly Todd featured a video clip of Barr’s recent interview on CBS This Morning, but it was edited in such a way that made it appear the opposite of what he said.
The Daily Caller’s Greg Price placed Todd’s segment and Barr’s interview with CBS side-by-side and posted it to Twitter. Sure enough, Barr was taken out of a context on the subject of the rule of law. Despicable.
