CBS Edits Out Bill Clinton's Revealing Verbal Slip on Hillary's Health

During Monday night's CBS Evening News broadcast, a clip of Charlie Rose interviewing Bill Clinton omitted what some would call a Freudian-like slip from Clinton on the status of his wife's health. Though Clinton corrected himself mid-statement, it was not a message the Clinton campaign, or apparently CBS, wanted out in the public, so they edited it out.

The network backpedaled Tuesday and included the full quote on their morning show but the damage had already been done. Tuesday morning's cable shows on CNN, MSNBC and Fox all used the edited clip from CBS instead.

As you can see in the video below, the edit in the second clip from CBS Evening News is so seamless without any visible transition that it's clear CBS was trying to make it appear that this was the full response from Clinton.

The Daily Caller's Chuck Ross first noted the discrepancy between what was played on TV and what CBS' website read. Here is the full quote posted on CBS' website:

BILL CLINTON: Well if it is, it's a mystery to me and all of her doctors, because frequently—well not frequently, rarely—but on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing happened to her when she got severely dehydrated.

This isn't the first time this election we've seen some aggressive editing from the networks. The liberal media has a habit of trying to make people say things they didn't say to fit an agenda.
