Media Bias on 2012 "political flubs"
Posted by Staff
Newsbusters:

Strangely missing from NBC's look back on the 2012 campaign were gaffes and controversial statements from the Obama-Biden campaign. Friday's Today featured a mini-blooper reel of GOP mishaps on the campaign trail, but made no mention of Democratic controversies.

In its lengthy string of highlights from the 2012 campaign, Today included Mitt Romney's infamous "47 percent" remarks along with Rep. Todd Akin's "legitimate rape" meltdown. Today said nothing, though, of Biden's controversial "chains" comments or Obama's "you didn't build that" remark.

The mini-blooper reel began with a clip of NBC's Lester Holt hyping "High-profile distractions for the Republican Party." Today co-anchor Matt Lauer was shown lecturing Rep. Akin, "That's just not true," before NBC highlighted Romney's "47 percent" remarks. "Romney defending comments secretly recorded at a private fund raiser," reported co-anchor Savannah Guthrie.

What else could NBC have included? Biden told a crowd in Danville, Virginia, a city with a high African-American population, "Romney wants to, he said in the first 100 days, he's going to let the big banks once again write their own rules. Unchain Wall Street. They're going to put y’all back in chains."
