With the mainstream media choosing to lambast Donald Trump’s reference to the explosion in NYC as a “bombing,” CNN – for some reason – decided to edit out the opening sentence of Hillary Clinton’s drugged up statement to the press. Barely able to keep her eyes open in her drug induced stupor, Clinton also called the attacks in New York and New Jersey “bombings,” but CNN chose to omit that sentence.
“Hillary called the bombing a bombing as well, before criticizing Trump for calling it a bombing. So CNN edited Hillary calling it a bombing out of her remarks while at the same time they were blasting Trump for calling a bombing a bombing. Media and Zombie Hillary More Angry at Trump for Calling a Bombing a Bombing Than They Are About the Bombing.” Rush Limbaugh
Drugged induced Hillary’s full version before the edit…
The CNN edited version…
ABC details the full transcript:
Clinton: I’ve been briefed about bombings in New York and New Jersey, and the attacks in Minnesota. Obviously, we need to do everything we can to support our first responders, also to pray for the victims. We have to let this investigation unfold. We’ve been in touch with various officials, including the mayor’s office in New York, to learn what they are discovering as they conduct this investigation. And I’ll have more to say about it when we actually know the facts.
Reporter: Secretary Clinton, do you have any reaction to the fact that Donald Trump, immediately upon taking the stage tonight, called the explosion in New York a “bombing” … ?
* Totally ignoring the fact that Hillary just called called the explosion in New York a “bombing”.
Clinton: Well, I think it’s important to know the facts about any incident like this. That’s why it’s critical to support the first responders, the investigators who are looking into it, trying to determine what did happen.
But, as The Hill reports, in showing Clinton’s comments moments after they were made, CNN edited out the first sentence when she said, “I’ve been briefed about bombings in New York and New Jersey, and the attacks in Minnesota.” The soundbite starts with Clinton’s call to support first responders.

In a CNN.com article entitled “Trump says ‘bomb went off in New York,’ ” reporter Jeremy Diamond doesn’t mention Clinton used similar language until the seventh paragraph of the story, after contrasting statements by Trump and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
The press has since largely slammed Trump for referring to the explosion as a “bomb” too soon.
As The Hill details, CNN were not alone in this manipulation. Other major media outlets also failed to mention Clinton in focusing on Trump:
CBS News: Donald Trump: “A bomb went off in New York”
USA Today: Trump cites ‘bomb’ amid early news of NYC blast
The Washington Post: Trump says ‘bomb’ went off in New York before details of explosion
New York Daily News: Hillary Clinton criticizes Donald Trump’s rush to call New York City explosion a ‘bomb’
And even AP…
