Andrea Mitchell Addresses Her (Unapproved) Inclusion In Obama Ad

On Monday, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell took a moment to address her rather involuntary inclusion in a recent Obama campaign ad.

“I want to move on to a point of personal privilege,” she said. “Some viewers might be understandably confused by the fact that the Obama campaign is airing a commercial right now including a video clip of me fact-checking Governor Romney after last week’s debate.”

“You should know,” she continued, “that NBC has not granted either campaign permission to use our news material and immediately requested that the campaign refrain from using its material in this and future advertisements.”

The clip used, she explained, actually came from a segment in which she fact-checked both candidates.
