In today's "Andrea Mitchell Reports," the NBC cover-up was in full gear. Rather than own up to or apologize for yesterday's attempt to create a Romney gaffe out of what was later discovered (by just a blogger) to be a wildly misleading edit, Ms. Mitchell only said this:

"We ran clips of Mitt Romney in Cornwall, Pennsylvania, talking about his trip to WaWa. Well, the RNC and the campaign both reached out to us saying that 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."

"We didn’t get a chance to play it" is a lie.

On its website, NBC News is even lying with this false headline: "Mitchell addresses criticism of Romney clip edit."

Uhm, no she didn't. If you weren't familiar with the controversy, you would think Mitchell was merely doping the Romney camp a favor by playing the clip.
