RUSH: Grab audio sound bite number 29. Folks, you have to hear this. This is the White House press secretary, Josh Earnest, at the White House daily briefing today. And as far as I know, this is the first White House comment on the videos taken of Planned Parenthood people describing the harvesting of body parts and how to do it without damaging the body parts and then selling them. This is what Josh Earnest said.
EARNEST: I haven’t spoken to the president about the actual videos. I have read the reports and I’m confident that he has, too, raising significant concerns about the way in which those videos were selectively edited to distort the — not just the words of the individual speaking but also the position of Planned Parenthood.
RUSH: So what outrages Obama is the way the videos were edited, not what happened? But rather that somebody might be criticizing Planned Parenthood?
By the way, the full unedited video is available. It’s been posted if you want to watch it. So, the full unedited video can be seen by anybody who wants. It’s three hours. If you want to watch it, it’s three hours long.
But selectively edit? Josh, you ever heard of 60 Minutes? Have you ever heard of ABC? You ever heard of CBS? You ever heard of NBC? There isn’t a news organization around that doesn’t selectively edit. Everybody edits. Usually for time, but in the case of Drive-By Media — they’re the ones that edit, like doctor a 911 tape from George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case, NBC, remember that, Josh? You talk about selective editing in order to make Zimmerman look like something he wasn’t.
This is obscene to claim that what the president’s alarmed about is selective editing when the entire three-hour tape is viewable. The President’s offended that somebody dared embarrass Planned Parenthood. Because, I’ll tell you, you may not remember this. It was not very long ago. It was either in a TV ad or in a public appearance. President Obama actually said, “God bless Planned Parenthood.” Sick. It’s just sick.
