Why Did CNN Edit Hillary’s Bombing Comments?


HILLARY CLINTON WAS
INTERVIEWED ON A PLANE, YOU WILL SEE, ABOUT THE EXPLOSIONS
— [BUFFERING] OBVIOUSLY WE NEED TO DO
EVERYTHING WE CAN TO SUPPORT OUR FIRST RESPONDERS, ALSO TO PRAY
FOR THE VICTIMS. WE HAVE TO LET THIS INVESTIGATION UNFOLD, WE’VE
BEEN IN TOUCH WITH VARIOUS OFFICIALS, INCLUDING THE MAYOR’S
OFFICE IN NEW YORK, TO LEARN WHAT THEY ARE DISCOVERING AS
THEY CONDUCT THIS INVESTIGATION, AND I’LL HAVE MORE TO SAY ABOUT
IT WHEN WE ACTUALLY KNOW SOME FACTS. FOLKS JUMPED ON THIS BECAUSE
THOSE WHO HAD SEEN THE FULL FEED, THE UNEDITED FEED, SAW
THAT BEFORE SHE TALKED ABOUT WAITING FOR THE FACTS TO COME IN
SHE SAID — AND THEN WHAT YOU SAW, WE
NEED TO SUPPORT THE FIRST RESPONDERS AND PRAY FOR THE
VICTIMS. SO PEOPLE JUMPED ON HER FOR TALKING ABOUT HOW WE NEEDED
TO WAIT, BUT SHE DID USE THE WORD LINKS. WHAT ARE YOUR
THOUGHTS ON THAT? WELL — CNN SHOULDN’T HAVE
EDITED IT, ESPECIALLY IF IT WAS PART OF PRESENTING THAT DONALD
TRUMP SAID ONE THING AND HILLARY SAID ANOTHER. BUT THE FACT OF
THE MATTER IS, HILLARY, ON AN ODDLY EMPTY PLANE AT A TIME WHEN
THEY ARE REALLY TRYING TO SELL EVERY SEAT — STRONGER TOGETHER AIRLINES IS
CLEARLY GOING THROUGH A TOUGH TIME. BUT HER RESPONSE — FIRST OF
ALL, I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M GOING TO SAY THIS, I THINK SHE MEANS
BOMBINGS LIKE THE WAY SOMEONE WOULD SAY EXPLOSIONS. BUT OKAY,
SHE SAID BOMBINGS. IT’S OKAY THAT HE SAID BOMB TOO, IT SEEMED
LIKE A BOMB, IT’S OKAY TO SAY THAT. DONALD TRUMP THEN DECIDED
TO SAY WE WILL GET TOUGHER WITH THEM OVER THERE, WE’VE GOT TO
LET THEM HAVE IT. SHOWING TWO THINGS, ONE AN IGNORANT RESPONSE
TO HOW WE SHOULD RESPOND TO IT, AND TWO A COMPLETE LACK OF
RECOGNITION OF WHAT WE HAVE BEEN DOING ALREADY OVER THERE. DISQUALIFIES HIM ON BOTH COUNTS. SHE SAID I BEEN BRIEFED ON THE
BOMBINGS AND ATTACKS, WE HAVE TO STAND BY OUR FIRST RESPONDERS,
WE WILL KNOW MORE LATER. I DON’T WANT TO GIVE HER A HIGH-FIVE FOR
THAT RESPONSE BUT IT WAS FINE. IT WAS TOTALLY ACCEPTABLE, IN
FACT, MAYBE YOU WANT TO GIVE HER A LITTLE HIGH-FIVE BECAUSE SHE
DIDN’T WANT TO MAKE NEWS OUT OF IT. NOTHING ABOUT HER DEMEANOR
OR THE WAY SHE SAID THAT SUGGESTED, I’M GOING TO MAKE
NEWS. I CAN’T WAIT TO GET THIS ON TV. SHE GAVE A MEASURED
RESPONSE TO A SITUATION SHE HAD LITTLE INFORMATION ABOUT,
EVERYONE HAD LITTLE INFORMATION ABOUT. HE WENT TO A WILD EXTREME
AS HE ALWAYS DOES. THAT SAID, I SUPPOSE CNN SHOULD NOT HAVE
EDITED IT OUT. ALTHOUGH I DON’T KNOW IT’S A SIGN OF ANYTHING. IF THEY DID EDIT IT OUT, IT
MIGHT JUST HAVE BEEN — THIS TO ME IS CLASSIC SHE MISSPOKE. BECAUSE THE REST OF HER STATEMENT IS ABOUT HOW WE
SHOULD WAIT AND SEE BEFORE WE SHOULD JUMP TO ANY CONCLUSION. BUT IT DOESN’T MATTER, AND THE
WORST THING ABOUT THIS — THE STORY ITSELF DOESN’T
MATTER. THE WORST THING IS CNN EDITING
IT OUT TO MAKE IT MATTER. BUT NEITHER OF WHAT THEY SAID
MATTERS, AND WE CAN BE SURE CLINTON’S CAMPAIGN IS JUST AS
RESPONSIBLE AS TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN TO BRING THIS UP, BECAUSE THEY
ARE LIKE, AH-HA, THERE IS THE PROOF THAT WILL CONVINCE PEOPLE
HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT HE’S TALKING ABOUT. [BUFFERING] HE SAID IT WAS ATTRIBUTED TO
THE RISING POLLS, THAT’S WHAT IT WAS EDITED OUT, BECAUSE HE’S
HIGHER IN THE POLLS AND THAT’S WHY CNN IS GOING AFTER
HIM. IT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE
BECAUSE THEORETICALLY THEIR ARGUMENT AGAINST HER IS SHE’S
NOT TOUGH ENOUGH, SHE SHOULD CALL IT A BOMBING. THEN SHE DID
CALL THE BOMBING, I HAPPEN TO THINK SHE MEANT TO SAY
EXPLOSIONS, BUT WHO COULD POSSIBLY CARE ABOUT THIS? AND CNN WASN’T LIKE — RISING IN THE POLLS, EDIT OUT
THE PART ABOUT THE BOMBINGS. BUT THE EDITOR WAS LIKE, FREE
DINNER AT A FIVE-STAR RESTAURANT TONIGHT COURTESY OF THE HILLARY
CAMPAIGN IF I JUST TAKE THIS WORD OUT. I THINK IT IS AN EDITOR GOING,
EVERYTHING SHE SAYS IS SO BORING. I JUST WANT TO SHOW THE WORDS I
NEED TO SELL. YOU ARE KIDDING, BUT THAT
STATEMENT LOOK LIKE — NOW I WILL SOUND LIKE DONALD TRUMP —
A VERY LONG SOUNDBITE THAT SAID NOTHING. AND THERE MIGHT HAVE
BEEN A DESIRE THAT THIS NEEDS TO BE 18 SECONDS, NOT 25. THAT’S
HOW THIS WORKS. BUT IF THE PUNISHMENT FOR HER
UNDERSTANDING THE THING TO SAY, AND THAT’S THE THING TO SAY
BECAUSE IT’S THE SMART, RIGHT THING TO SAY IS PRESIDENT. I
REFUSE TO LET HER GET PENALIZED FOR GETTING THE RIGHT ANSWER
BECAUSE IT’S THE RIGHT ANSWER.

  1. CBS edited out Bill Clinton saying that Hillary had had many episodes like she had getting into the limo last week. They took out those few words because of "time" constraints.

  2. WOW! Way to willfully miss the issue Ben.
    What Hillary said does not matter AT ALL. The POINT IS CNN cut it out. Just like they cut 1.9 seconds out of Bill Clintons interview, when he said Hillary had "frequent" issues with her health.

    This is not something CNN just thinks to do, its Huma Abedin, micro managing the message, and CNN cutting exactly what she tells them to cut. And its disgusting.

  3. Hmmm weird for some reason I unsubbed. Idk if it's happening on someone else's account but I don't see how I could unsub if I never go to your main page. Usually just click on the latest video in my sub tab.

  4. The reality is CNN went after trump for calling it a bombing and insinuating it was an act of terror. Hillary said they were bombs which was true obviously however the fact that cnn which is owned by time warner one of her biggest donors removed it seemed t show something rather wrong.

  5. Why calling it bombing is wrong?
    "As nouns the difference between bomb and explosive is that bomb is an explosive device used or intended as a weapon while explosive is substance. "
    And these explosions were intentional- so they were bomb.

  6. This was 2 hours after the bombing when it had already been officially declared a bombing. Trump said it was a bombing 30 minutes after before it had been officially declared a bombing. You know how I know? Cause I was actually watching it, and the anchors SAID that she called it a bombing. Quit getting your news off of Donald Trump Jr's Twitter page u hacks.

  7. She looks like she is about to die! Honestly, I will vote for her over Trump, but the Democrats should convince her to drop out and run a candidate who isn't terminally ill!

  8. TYT wants to be CNN. "It doesn't matter" "she misspoke" " she said bombing like people say explosions" Down voting another TYT videos, I used to like you guys.

  9. It's frustrating to see TYT revamp their formats, and try new things in the face of losing so many people, but it never occurs to them to stick to what worked to begin with… stop regressing. Everything they do is digging deeper into the fox-bubble equilibrium.

  10. The clips that have the most logical and adult approaches to the topic usually get the most irrelevant vitriol.
    Hint: the answer to the question in the title is purely speculative. Why would anyone expect TYT to have the inside scoop on this? I think people get mad because Ben is so much smarter and level-headed than they could ever be.

  11. Fire that psychopath pro-Shillary Ben Dicknose Mankiewicz already. He's ruining your channel, your subscriptions have been going down the last few weeks. Also Michael is a freaking empty suit.

  12. Seriously guys, aren't you noticing how biased your channel is? You support one devil while bashing the other.
    If you haven't noticed, both candidates are crap so build your stories around that.
    You claim not to belong to the mainstream but in reality it makes no difference if one watches CNN or your channel. It would be so refreshing to see a channel, newpaper or news site objectively reporting about the world without any of this biased shit. (like in The Newsroom)
    I can't believe that you support Hillary no matter what and portray her as an angel, while Trump is always the bad guy. Don't get me wrong, he is but that doesn't mean that Hillary isn't. All you guys did in the past was cover her shit up and point out Trump's mistakes. You wan't to be a news channel? Get out of here!!

  13. It didn't take a genius to figure out an explosion in a crowded place where no dangerous substances are normally handled was a BOMB.

  14. Hillary's tone of voice is just terrible. She has absolutely no remorse or care in the world to do anything about this or future events. She will just let events and people with mindsets like this to continue to happen

  15. Wow… surprised you turds even brought this up. You failed completely at trying to spin it in your favor, and only brought more attention to the fact that you all lie. The only people that watch your crap are Trump supporters who want to see what lies the establishment is pushing today. Your welcome for all the views, once Trump wins your ratings will drop to almost nothing since we all know that you have been paid off to report fake stories in support a traitorous regime.

  16. so many trump trolls… her statement was fine, a reasonable response, maybe she, like most people I imagine, suspected a terrorist attack which accounts for the wording, tyt have like a thousand videos criticising Clinton I don't understand why people continue to try and argue that they're biased, both candidates are awful at least one of them isn't going to blow up the world because someone sent them a mean tweet

  17. Alright so I am from South Africa and just tryna understand why TYT gets so much hate and down votes on all their videos? Can someone please explain this to me??

  18. Might just be because I'm not American or I just missed something, but why is using the word 'bombing' a talking point? Genuinely confused and wanna know…

  19. is the problem the fact that she called the incident a bombing before it was confirmed to be a bombing? how trivial and petty is this? lmao

  20. This is not about how bad she is, it s about how bad she looks and is getting worse every day. You US liberals are in complete denial.

  21. Wow TYT, the story here is not whether Clinton should have used the word "bombing". The story is how CNN edited material they received to support an agenda. They fabricated an entire story here about how bad Trump was for using "bombing" in his initial statement and how Hillary had not used that word. You're correct, who cares if Clinton used the word or not, her response seemed fine. Now do a piece on the actual story; the journalistic integrity of CNN, exactly how biased they are and whether they can be trusted as a news source. You gleefully blast FOX news regularly for their sorry excuse for "reporting" the "news". This piece should have been about CNN, not Clinton.

  22. Can you guys cover the story regarding Hillary Clinton's IT/email operator asking Reddit how to delete emails? Kind of surprising you guys haven't yet

  23. β–€β–ˆβ–€β–’β–ˆβ–€β–ˆβ–’β–ˆβ–’β–ˆβ–’β–ˆβ–’β–’β–’β–ˆβ–’β–ˆβ–€β–ˆβ–’β–’β–ˆβ–€β–ˆβ–’β–ˆβ–€β–ˆβ–’β–ˆβ–’β–ˆβ–€β–ˆβ–’β–ˆ

  24. They didn't edit shit. They played the part where she said bombings multiple times. The difference is Clinton was briefed long after Trump opened his mouth with no briefing. TYT are certified morons that do hit pieces on Clinton and then cry and whine about the polls tightening and the prospect of a fascist maniac being elected.

  25. YOU IDIOTS AT TYT HAVE NO IDEA WHY THIS WAS SUCH A BIG DEAL! YOU DID NOT EVEN DISCUSS IT! This was made into an issue because CNN did a Complete Story ALL DAY How Trump JUMPED to a conclusion and said it was a BOMB vs Hillary's measured, Calm Approach making her look steady when he looked Off-the-Cuff and Manic! Ben said Trump said bomb vs Hillary's Bombings but NO ONE MENTIONED CNN MADE THIS A STORY! Do You Get It? Do You See How Dirty That Is Making a HEADLINE STORY how She is so great when she said THE SAME F'ING THING? JEEZ! So Infuriating! It wasn't a blurb-it was done to differentiate the candidates so they edited out SHE SAID THE SAME THING! That is FILTHY JOURNALISM! Disgusting work by Jake Tapper & others same day. It's Why Majority HATE CNN and are disgusting. To Myself, this takes CNN out as even being a serious network-so Bias and so Dirty!

  26. "It doesn't matter." Sound like anyone else? Anyone in politics? Running for president? Anyone? "What difference does it make?"

  27. Do all theese fucks on this show just read CNN and MSBNC because if you do that you are not in reality, reality is America is in the worst state ever, 16 terror attacks in the last 2 and half years. GO TRUMP he WANTS to make american Safe again and The GREAT nation it is supposed to be. Clinton crook, lier, lier, lier, lier i am not sure if her name is even Hillary that is how much she lies.

  28. The "problem" is that Hiliary, and the mainstream media, is critizing Trump for calling the bombings a bomb, which was accurate, when she herself called it a bomb!

  29. We have to save you from yourselves. The left will slowly but surely go insane with Hillary in office destroying things, obfuscating with the media and dividing the left against itself in defense of her doing what we simply wouldn't tolerate otherwise. With Trump in office, embarrassing or not, we will all be on the same side facing the same way in opposition against him as we pay very close attention to avoid catastrophe.

  30. Why is Ben ALWAYS making excuses for Hillary Clinton? Whether it's media supporting her, the DNC working in her favor or her bad political decisions. He ALWAYS has an excuse for her.

  31. Ben, I'm sorry but you're the reason why I don't watch as much TCM as I did when Robert Osborne was alive. You have a very hard time keeping your politics out of your hosting. THEY DON'T BELONG THERE. Clearly, both candidates had been briefed identically, which is why they both identified what happened in Chelsea as one in a cluster of "bombings." And incidentally, "PhillipS Holmes," not "PhilliP," starred in 1931's An American Tragedy. Geez. Practice reading what's going to be on your teleprompter and know your screen history prior to a screening, why doncha?

  32. Just to get publicity for people like me to watch ! Bashing my President is not what I want to hear or see your blocked. Bad news

  33. It means they are lying to you! What is the point of news if its not true?. Its why its pointless watching TYT. The don't even get it lying is bad nk
