Former NBC investigative reporter Lisa Myers has confirmed that NBC edited out portions of the interview she conducted with Juanita Broaddrick about her rape allegations against Bill Clinton. In the interview 17 years ago, Broaddrick made statements about Hillary’s role in burying the rape accusations that were never aired.
The Washington Free Beacon reports that former NBC correspondent Michael Isikoff wants NBC to release the full unedited video. Especially since the network is digging up old video damaging to Hillary’s opponent.
“NBC has the full tape of the original Lisa Myers interview,” Isikoff said during an online discussion on Sidewire.com. “NBC ought to check its archive and run the full interview. (AS long as they’re now culling their archives!)”
Isikoff worked as a national correspondent for NBC from 2010 to 2014. He says that NBC reporter Lisa Myers has confirmed Broaddrick’s claim that NBC edited out references that could have been damaging to Hillary Clinton.
“Folks have made much of the fact that her claim about the conversation she had with Hillary wasn’t in the interview that run,” Isikoff said. “Broaddrick said it got cut out; Lisa Myers has since agreed Broaddrick said this then—and NBC chose to cut it out.”
Some have argued that Broaddrick’s allegations have been discredited, but apparently the American public hasn’t even heard the whole story. Isikoff also commented on the dueling double standards I wrote about yesterday appearing in political chatter.
He added that it was “amazing to watch” Democrats that he saw defend Bill Clinton against his accusers now jump to embrace women accusing Trump.
It’s also amazing to watch Republicans who jump to embrace Clinton’s accusers circle the wagons around Trump. The agendas at work make it all the more important that people get all the facts.
There is no legitimate excuse for NBC not to release the entire Broaddrick interview after releasing the old Access Hollywood tape of Donald Trump
