CNN Sitting On 'Obama Erection' Video ... Since 2008?

UPDATE (1:30p.m. EDT):

Seems we may have uncovered a few more details about CNN's behavior in possibly covering up this video.

Back in 2008, at least a portion of the below video of Obama flaunting himself did appear on CNN's website.

However, no media coverage made any reference to lewdness. There was just reference to the unremarkable news that Obama was ... wearing jeans.

CNN captioned the clip with only what follows, which Michelle Malkin and Allahpundit took note of at the time:

“Obama in jeans: Sen. Barack Obama surprises the press corps by wearing jeans.”

It appears that the portion of the video that would have created a firestorm had been circumsized by CNN editors.

This link to the video, as it appeared on CNN's site at the time, was included in Allahpundit's post:

That link is no longer active.

Neither is this one, which purportedly linked to the CNN video that had been uploaded to YouTube:

Next Page: The original report and video. Trump only talked about being lewd. It looks like perhaps Obama may have actually done it.

A newly emerged video from the 2008 presidential campaign appears to show that the current president of the United States might be even lewder than Donald Trump.

And Trump only talked about being lewd. Looks like Obama may have actually done it.

Further, liberal media bias is at the center of this controversy, too.

NBC sat on the video of Trump and Billy Bush until such a time that it could aid a Democratic opponent of Trump -- NBC refused to release the video when it could have helped Republican Ted Cruz.

Well, this new video -- of Senator Obama, running for president in 2008, apparently flaunting his ERECTION in front of a plane full of FEMALE reporters -- was shot by a CNN camera.

CNN has kept this video private all these years -- a video that might have changed U.S. history to favor Republicans.

Via Grabien:

Aboard a campaign flight, then-Senator Obama is talking on a cellphone as he arises from his seat; nearby a female reporter catches a glance of something that makes her uncomfortable, sending her skirmishing to the back of the plane.

Obama, rather than downplay the awkward display, instead plays it up, positioning himself so the gathered reporters have little choice but to take in his chauvinistic display.

Meanwhile, a female voice can be heard ordering everyone to sit down, ostensibly so they can get a better look. The gathered female reporters laugh at the scene, further encouraging Obama's bawdy behavior.

If there is a more perfect example of a male narcissist playing to his adoring fans -- in this case, 2008 rock star candidate Barack Obama playing to his liberal female fans in the mainstream media -- I've not seen it.

It's stunning that they held this video for all these years.

Recall, this isn't the only example of the liberal media hiding a video that might have tanked Obama's candidacy.

The L.A. Times -- to this day -- is hiding the video of Obama bashing Jews and Israel as he gives a speech toasting former PLO operative Rashid Khalidi, who became a professor, at a dinner held in Khalidi's honor.

The L.A. Times at least admitted that their video actually exists.

CNN?

Until today, CNN gave not even the slightest hint that a history-changing "Obama Sexually Harasses Female Reporters With His ERECTION?" video was in their vault.
