White House: Video Edit Wouldn’t Happen Here

Dang, talk about shade/throwing the State Department [1] under the bus!

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said a decision at the State Department to selectively edit out a portion of the press briefing dealing with the Iran nuclear deal would never happen on his watch.

“I feel quite confident in saying that no one would make a decision like that about a briefing that I was involved in without telling me,” Earnest said to a group of reporters traveling with the president back from Colorado Thursday evening. He also noted that the White House press shop benefits from having a smaller press operation than the State Department.
