We know Mother Jones is lying because they never mentioned the missing footage when they claimed to release the “full,“ ”raw and uncut” version of the tape. They only admitted it after being called out by The Blaze.
The videos of Mitt Romney’s remarks at a May fundraiser, released in full by Mother Jones yesterday, omit “one to two minutes” of the candidates remarks, the journalist who obtained the video told POLITICO.
The omission comes between parts one and two of the video, following Romney’s now famous remark that ““there are 47 percent who are with [President Barack Obama], who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims” and who would never vote for him. Part one ends with Romney discussing the “47 percent,” part two picks up with him talking about China.
Mother Jones published Romney’s remarks in two parts yesterday, which is how journalist David Corn says he received it from his source.
“When we put up the full video, the source said — and I have no reason not to believe him — that the device that was being used inadvertently shut down or timed-out,” Corn told POLITICO. “As soon as he knew that, he turned the camera back on and, at most, one to two minutes were missed. The video came to me as two separate files, and that is how we posted it on the website.”
