One of the sins of the mainstream media is omission. Fortunately CBS did post this segment of the Steve Kroft interview with President Obama, but millions of viewers who saw last night's interview will probably never see this bit.
When asked about deceptive advertising--that's being kind--because some Obama ads contain lies, such as a Super PAC ad that accused Mitt Romney of allowing a woman to dies of cancer, Obama responded, "Do we see sometimes us going overboard in our campaign, are there mistakes that are made, areas where there is no doubt somebody could dispute how we are presenting things? You know, that happens in politics."
Kroft replied, "Aren't American entitled to the truth? Or a better version of it?"
Of course we are. But Obama and his Super PAC chose to run a Chicago thug campaign.
