CNN edited the opening sentence of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s response to Saturday’s explosion in New York City, removing her use of the word “bombing” to describe the attack.
When Clinton came out to address the press on her campaign plane late Saturday, she opened her brief remarks by saying “I’ve been briefed about bombings in New York and New Jersey, and the attacks in Minnesota.”
But when CNN aired Clinton’s response, and posted it on Twitter, they removed Clinton’s first sentence, and instead began on her second, which emphasized support for first responders.
t the time of Clinton’s response, some in the media, including CNN reporter Jeremy Diamond, were criticizing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for allegedly jumping the gun by calling the attack a bombing before it was explicitly confirmed by authorities. In fact, Clinton’s first question from the press was on that exact topic, with a reporter asking what she thought about Trump “immediately” calling the attacks a bombing. Perhaps because she’d just use the word herself, Clinton punted on the question and avoided attacking Trump directly.

Trump said, we just learned that A bomb has gone off in NYC. We don’t know anything else yet.
Hillary (Zombie Hillary) did call the situation “bombings” and attack.
She then waited 31 hours before making a statement beyond that zombie one.
Obama waited even longer.
Trump said ”we learned” or we are learning.”
Hillary said “I was briefed.”
6 of one, 1/2 dozen of the other.
No doubt they both have NYPD contacts that verified, before any public statement, the the explosions were IED’s. Yet the media wanted desperately to show Trump to be a reactionary fool (these, the people that help whip up racial frenzy whenever possible, ALWAYS being proved wrong) so they deleted Hillary’s identical response. Just like CBS editing Bill’s “frequently” from the discussion of Hillary’s health.
This is so third world banana republic it’s sickening. Let’s await the parade of fools denying liberal media bias.
@Bill: The liberal networks are getting into the Panic mode as all the polls are now showing Trump to be leading everywhere. They can’t handle the thought that some people may have good sense.
@Redteam (One of The Proud Deplorables): Oh, they can handle it… they know exactly what to do.
This will not be a case of, “Well, we fought the good fight but we lost, fair and square. Better luck next time.” with liberals. They will fight, tooth and nail and utilize every means to win. The Supreme Court for a generation is at at stake.
