NBC caught editing segment about Bill Clinton rape accuser

NBC News retroactively edited one of its TV news segments, still available online, to remove a section that referred to one of Bill Clinton's sex harassment accusers as "discredited."

The segment originally aired in May and was reported by Andrea Mitchell. The edit was noticed Tuesday by the conservative Washington Free Beacon website.

During the segment, Mitchell referred to Republican nominee Donald Trump bringing up old allegations against the former president by Juanita Broaddrick, who for decades has insisted she was raped by Clinton.

"During an interview last night with Fox News' Sean Hannity, bringing up a discredited and long-denied accusation against former president Bill Clinton dating back to 1978 when he was Arkansas attorney general," Mitchell said in the original segment.

The edited portion removes the words "a discredited and long-denied."

NBC News did not respond to a request for comment from the Washington Examiner on when and why it was edited.

Clinton's sexual history has come up throughout the 2016 election, threatening to tarnish his wife Hillary's record on women's issues.

In the late 1990s, the former president famously admitted to an extramarital affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
