Breaking this morning, according to reports:
“Hillary Clinton called the New York and New Jersey attacks “bombings” before responding to criticism of Donald Trump’s own use of the term “bomb,” according to an ABC news transcript; yet, CNN edited out Clinton’s opening sentence referencing “bombings” in its breaking news coverage Saturday night, as reported by The Hill.
“I’ve been briefed about bombings in New York and New Jersey, and the attacks in Minnesota,” Clinton said before CNN’s coverage picked up her statement with the following remarks:
“Obviously, we need to do everything we can to support our first responders, also to pray for the victims,” Clinton said. “We have to let this investigation unfold. We’ve been in touch with various officials, including the mayor’s office in New York, to learn what they are discovering as they conduct this investigation.”
