The media shows no hesitation in publishing unflattering content about GOP nominee Donald Trump, regardless of how old it may be, but seems to lack that same willingness when it comes to rival Hillary Clinton.
Investigative journalist Michael Isikoff said this week that NBC is in possession of a tape of its initial interview with Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who accused Bill Clinton of rape, and should release it before the election, The Washington Free Beacon reported.
Isikoff missed out on breaking the Monica Lewinsky affair with the former president when his then-employer Newsweek sat on the story.
“NBC has the full tape of the original Lisa Myers interview,” Isikoff said during an online discussion on Sidewire.com. “NBC ought to check its archive and run the full interview.”
The network certainly doesn’t mind empty its archive when it comes to Trump.
Isikoff, who worked at NBC from 2010 to 2014, said NBC reporter Lisa Myers confirmed claims made by Broaddrick that the network edited out references that could be damaging to Clinton’s presidential run.
“Folks have made much of the fact that her claim about the conversation she had with Hillary wasn’t in the interview that run,” he said. “Broaddrick said it got cut out; Lisa Myers has since agreed Broaddrick said this then — and NBC chose to cut it out.”
Free Beacon noted that NBC has never released an unedited version of the interview.
The journalist expressed his astonishment over seeing Democrats who defended Bill Clinton when he was accused of sexual misconduct supporting the women who are accusing Trump of similar behavior.
“It’s amazing to watch how [Democrats] who attacked those women are now embracing the Trump accusers, while the [Republicans] who believed them attack them,” Isikoff said.
