(CNN) – Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign said Friday that movie clips on the Internet which show former administration official and current supporter Mickey Kantor allegedly using a racial slur, and an expletive to refer to Indiana residents, are a “total fabrication.”
The footage was drawn from the 1992 documentary ‘The War Room’ - but the actual language used by Kantor is inaudible in both cases.
In one clip circulating on the Web, Kantor appears to say to James Carville, “Look at Indiana, wait, wait – look at Indiana. 42-40. It doesn’t matter if we win. Those people are s-. Excuse me."
Kantor today told the Huffington Post that he "was talking about the polling and not the people." The film’s director, D.A. Pennebaker, said in an interview with the Politico that, "he says they must be s-ing in the White House."
Another clip drawn from the film features racially derogatory language which was not heard in the original footage, and which Kantor and the filmmaker both said was added later.
The Clinton campaign also said Friday that the clip had been “doctored.”
The "Vast Right Wing Conspiracy" is at it again, right :)
Looked real to me.
No doubt he misspoke.
THis should be on the front page. Just cause they say is not true let the voters know and by adding it to CNN it legitamizes the tape and then people will research for them selves. Just like you did with rev. wright and the bitter comments do it now. Its only just CNN!!!
It's funny how people keep saying we need to talk about the Paul vs Clinton. You've talked about it and no one cares!
This is petty, buuuuut....its not fake.
The only thing that is fake is the pelt on that guys head.
That is not true...complete denial...but what else is true...typical of the people she surrounds herself with.
BS put is up and let us see the CORRECT ONE not the one that came up after in place of it...there were two!!
Doctored? No, we should say "changed." It is written in a "new" political playbook. It is change we can believe in. Yes we can! Yes we can! Yes we can!
If this is how they feel about Indianans, that explains a lot about why there was no federal relief for Maganquench.
Surprise surprise, the Clintons disrespect voters once again and no one even flinches. Did anybody see Hillary on O'Reilly? She said "Rich people, God bless us" and no one is talking about it? I mean, c'mon. If Obama said that everyone would be jumping on his back. Wake up people, the media wants to keep this race as close as possible for ratings ratings ratings.
Today I saw the original "War Room" VHS, taken from my basement. Mickey Kantor said everything claimed. Shame on you, Mickey Kantor, and shame on you for lying about.
Right. and if you believe that I've got some land in the desert to sell.
We're supposed to believe them? What's next, they'll tell us the footage of the welcoming ceremony in Bosnia was doctored too?
there we go again! i saw the clip and he said it clearly!
Now let's see if CNN will keep it fair and put this under the microscope. I'll be watchin'.
Great job CNN,
Obama , please if you want my vote,go AWAY from CARL ROVE...game...
i think that this need to be reported because every little thing about senator obama is. come on cnn be fair.
CNN, YOU HAVE TO TALK ABOUT THIS ON THE AIR ......THIS NEEDS TO BE THE TOP NEWS STORY (FOR THE NEXT 6-8 WEEKS) ALONG WITH THE PAUL VERSUS CLINTON STORY !!!
LET'S BE FAIR AND BALANCED !!!
