Critical audio gap in “complete” Romney tape released by Mother Jones (Update – Corn responds, 1-2 minutes missing)
Turns out tape cuts out part of controversial Romney answer
David Corn of Mother Jones released the “complete” audio and video of the secretly recorded Mitt Romney speech at a private fundraiser.
Yet the complete audio and video is not complete. There is a gap in the recording immediately after Romney’s now famous discussion of the 47% of voters who don’t pay taxes. The cut in the audio and video comes while Romney is in mid-sentence, so we actually do not have the full audio of what Romney said on the subject.
The next audio/video (Part 2) picks up with Romney talking about China.
I noticed this this afternoon and sent two tweets to Corn seeking an explanation.
I also sent Corn a Facebook message. I have yet to receive a response. I don’t have and can’t find Corn’s email address, or I would have done that also.
