CBS says it cut the ONE damning word out of Bill’s quote about Hillary’s heath ‘purely for time,’ of course

CBS News announced that Bill Clinton’s verbal slip up about his wife’s health was cut out of an interview for the sake of time.

The former president spoke to Charlie Rose in an interview aired by CBS and commented on Hillary Clinton’s collapse at a 9/11 commemoration event.

“Rarely, on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing’s happened to her,” he said in the video clip. Later, it was revealed that the clip was edited and Clinton had begun by saying “frequently.”

“Because frequently,” he said, according to the CBS website, before he caught himself, “well not frequently, rarely…”

CBS News said the edit, which was covered by a shot of Rose during the interview, was done “purely for time.”

In a statement, CBS said:

The clip in question from former President Clinton’s interview with Charlie Rose ran in its entirety on CBS THIS MORNING,[] and on CBSN, CBS News’ 24/7 digital streaming news service. One clip that ran on CBS Evening News was edited purely for time while on deadline for the live broadcast.


Though editing for broadcast deadlines is not unusual, the choice to cut the interview at the particular point and not elsewhere is still questionable.

It appeared, on social media, that people were not buying what CBS was selling.
