MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell with a Superiority Complex? Update: No apology

Andrea Mitchell was certainly the talk of the town today.  With her edited comments that she played on her MSNBC show with regards to Romney and the Wawa sandwich making machine.  It just seemed like one big joke to her. Today she attempted to put it all in context with an extended clip BUT, no apology. In fact as you will see, she looks positively pained.

Here’s the video from yesterday’s segment. First the MSNBC selective editing.


Here is the video in context. Clearly Romney is using Wawa to draw a distinction between the public and private sector. Courtesy The Right Scoop.

On today’s show she addressed the issue, and even noted that she was the talk of the town.

“There has been a lot of discussion overnight about a conversation you and I had yesterday,” Mitchell said to contributor Chris Cillizza. “We ran clips of Mitt Romney in Cornwall, Pennsylvania, talking about his trip to a Wawa. The RNC and the Campaign both reached out to us, saying Romney had more to say about that visit, about federal bureaucracy and innovation in the private sector.”

“We didn’t get a chance to play that, so here it is now,” she concluded.

That was it, no apology, and from the sounds of it, neither the RNC nor the Romney campaign even asked for one.

Here is the video for yourself to see


Yeah, let’s move on here … nothing to see except my prejudice showing. Do I look fat in these Obama jeans?

    Mitchell is a hack of the first order.? Maybe she wants to be Olbermann’s replacement and this is her tryout.
    It clearly demonstrates the desperation/panic on the left when they have to make up stories to cover for the fact that their guy can’t run on his record of failure (or maybe because he has to!).
    I am sure we can expect more of this journalistic “professionalism” as we approach November.? Right, Juan?? 😉

    both reporters look very uptight in the last clip??

    Not only didn’t the hack apologize, the clip STILL didn’t put Mitt’s comments in context.? The sad part is, there are still people who get ALL their news from the NBCs of the world…scary!

    More reason to kill your television- as if there wasn’t enough already.

      We have been without cable/satelitte/antenna bringing the media circus into our home since 2008. It is much more peaceful. NO low intellect commercials (I hate commercials), NO half-truth “news reports” and No managed and manipulated programming from the lefties. No political ads. No recycled, rehashed crap.
      Red Box, Net Flicks, or DVDs free from the library are available if we want to watch a movie or a series. There are plenty of good books to read. It’s just more peaceful.

      My TV has been in storage for over a year… there are innumerable things to do instead of staring at what is quite literally an idiot box.? Even local news carries enough measure of spin to disqualify it as objective.

    Oh, just stop it, people.? Andrea Mitchell is a “real journalist” — certainly not a blogger out in the blogosphere.? We should respect her journalistic integrity.? bwaaaaaaa!

  6. JBS on June 20, 2012 at 7:04 am

    Andrea Mitchell is guilty of journalistic malpractice.
    In a fair and balanced media she would be fired.

  7. Dimsdale on June 20, 2012 at 8:15 am

    Actually, when you think about it, with the typical PMSNBC audience, she would lose what little viewership she had if she apologized.??
    Thank goodness nobody watches PMSNBC other than the KoolAid drinkers and the people that like to observe them like zoo animals!

    messnbc is unfair and unbalanced.

  9. Jeff S on June 20, 2012 at 9:42 am

    The news organization of Chet Huntley, David Brinkley should be real proud of themselves.? When Tim Russert passed we lost the last real journalist in America.? David Gregory, Andrea Mitchell, Brian Williams and all, are nothing but idealogues wanting to put forward their message not the facts.? Network news is dead, they have?no credibility left.

    Tom–You mentioned a pained look. It has been my observation over the years that liberal women always seem to look like they’re about to cry even when they’re smiling. The more liberal, the more pained the expression. Think of people like” Katrina vanden Huevel, Garofalo, Sawyer (the gold standard), Jim’s pal Mika, etc.

    Mitchell didn’t apologize because she MEANT to run things that way.?

    • Dimsdale on June 22, 2012 at 12:59 pm

      I think that is the look of prolonged constipation…?? 😉

    This aired at 12:03 central time. The stats for the 18th (whole day as they are not broken down as a mid-day slice)(in thousands):
    FNC??????? 1,186
    CNN????????? 306
    MSNBC??? 399
    CNBC??????? 184
    FBN????????? 78
    Yes, that’s 399,000 watches of MSNBC FOR THE WHOLE DAY yesterday. Neilsen’s estimate is that MSNBC has 95.7 million households.?

    Sorry to say this, but Andrea Mitchell’s only claim to fame is she is married to Allen Greenspan. ?My nasty twin part says, she slept her way to the top.?

      Usually, gnarly little guys with power and money can do much better, but that might only be in Hollyweird….

    The Left will do and say anything to stay in power. The minions of the left (Andrea Mitchell) will anything to help further the continuance of Liberal tyranny.
