NBC Responds To White House Accusations: We Make Our "Own Editorial Decisions"

NBC has issued a statement responding to the Bush administration's accusations of "selective editing" in its coverage of the "appeasement" issue:


Richard Engel's interview with President Bush has been available, unedited, in its entirety, for the past day, on our website. Our reporting accurately reflects the interview. Just as the White House does not participate in the editorial process at the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal or USA Today, NBC News, as part of a free press in a free society, makes its own editorial decisions.
