White House press secretary Josh Earnest admitted that the administration’s response to the damning Planned Parenthood videos that have been released over the last few weeks has come from the organization’s public comments, not from any investigation on the part of the White House.
Earnest was asked by Breitbart’s Charlie Spiering where he was getting his information that the videos were fraudulent and distorted:
I’m merely repeating what I’ve seen that they [Planned Parenthood] have said, that has been reported publicly about what they’ve said.
Earnest also said he suspected that someone in the White House had watched the Planned Parenthood videos, and that they were “grossly distorted” and “selectively edited,” even though he hasn’t seen them himself.
In this case the truth apparently doesn’t matter, and Planned Parenthood’s word is good enough for them.
