THOSE WHO WERE YAMMERING AT BREITBART ABOUT THE SHERROD VIDEO ARE NOTABLY SILENT NOW: “Complete” video of Romney missing 1-2 minutes of remarks on the 47%. “The last 48 hours of media commentary has evinced an interesting, and entirely unsurprising, double standard, or perhaps triple standard. When undercover videos of ACORN and NPR by James O’Keefe or of Planned Parenthood by Lila Rose get published, the media immediately insinuates that they contain deceptive editing and demand that the full videos get released — even though media organizations like the broadcast networks rarely if ever operate by that same standard. Mother Jones ripped O’Keefe at the time for not providing all of the video from his undercover exposé of NPR . . . . Actually, O’Keefe eventually released all of the video of the ACORN and NPR stings, which didn’t change their stories at all. But the video of Mitt Romney at a May fundraiser from David Corn and Mother Jones brings us a new innovation — the triple standard. William Jacobson, Moe Lane, and The Blaze discovered that, contrary to claims made by Corn and MJ, the video wasn’t complete at all — and had a significant gap at a critical time in Romney’s remarks.”
