Obama "No Doubt Somebody Could Dispute How We Are Presenting Things"

After a major admission from Obama, in an interview on 60 minutes, in which Obama admitted his negative campaign ads against Romney have been "overboard", contained "mistakes", and are "disputable", CBS omitted said portion of the interview before publishing it. After immense pressure from other news sources, CBS finally released and edited clip on their website. Still thing mainstream media isn't bias? Watch edited clip posted by CBS below:


For clarity, below is the transcript:

Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes:
"Look, the fact-checkers have had problems with the ads on both sides," Kroft says to Obama in the unaired clip, "and say they've been misleading and in some cases just not true. Does that disturb you? I mean, some of them are your ads."
Obama:
"Do we see, sometimes, us going overboard in our campaign, or mistakes that are made... or that, you know... or areas where there's no doubt somebody could dispute how we are presenting things? Eh... you know, that happens in politics."
Steve Kroft:
"Aren't the American people entitled to the truth... or a better version of it?"
Obama:
"Absolutely - (jump edit to different portion of interview)"
So, Obama is on record admitting his campaign ads have been "overboard", contained "mistakes", and have left "no doubt somebody could dispute how (the Obama Campaign is) presenting things." What does CBS do? They edit it out; we would expect nothing less. Mainstream media is a circus act. They have lost all credibility with anyone interested in truth.

I repeat Kroft's question, "Aren't the American people entitled to the truth?" I answer: YES. This November, we will hold Obama accountable for lying to us all.
