Yesterday evening, NBC News reported that the Obama Administration has known for years that millions of Americans would lose their insurance plans, contrary to President Obama’s infamous promise. The Drudge Report featured NBC’s article in a banner headline.  Late last night or early this morning, after several mendacious White House officials tried to claim that people aren’t being forced out of their health plans, NBC’s article inexplicably disappeared from its website:

NBC’s article then re-appeared with several portions missing:

At the time of this writing, those paragraphs are back up.

NBC is blaming the problems on “issues” with its “publishing tool.”

It appears this was nothing more than a technical glitch.

That said, the whole episode is odd.

  • Lloyd Snauwaert

    It’s issues with a tool alright…

    • Bruce Inminn

      That “tool” probably voted for Obama.

  • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

    They’re getting closer to that kill switch for the internet.

    • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (the true one)

      One step at a time, and right now, the only thing that matters for the admin is damage control: propaganda at its finest to ensure the party, and Obama, are never made to appear in a bad light.

        Can’t avoid it–MILLIONS WILL LOSE THEIR POLICIES AND BE STUCK WITH $100s MORE A MONTH AND $1000s MORE A YEAR PLUS $5000 DEDUCTIBLES. That is not going to be covered or forgotten in a news cycle.

      NBC – No Bolshevik Channel…

      • David Feith

        Or – Neo Bolshevik Channel?

  • RumDoooogie

    hey the WH called and told them to change it or they wouldn’t get money

  • Perplexed

    NBC has been lying and shilling for Obama so long its shocked system crashed itself trying to auto correct.

    • conservativechick

      Now the CYA for Obama lies is not that your policy is being “cancelled” it’s being “transitioned.” haha They are beyond arrogant.

  • Kristie

    Sorry NBC… Technical glitches don’t affect just those parts of an article that causes the White House to hyperventilate and go into panic mode. Nice try though, media lap dog. Guess someone is going to be in trouble for not running it by the White House for Valerie Jarrett’s edits before publishing. I’m almost tempted to watch Morning Joe to see how MSNBC spins this whopper!

  • WhoMeToo

    @NBC <== IS the "publishing TOOL"

    • Wag_a_Muffin (D)

      Whoops, sorry. (I should have read all the comments.)

  • William Race

    Pesky glitches. Like that 911 “recording” that made GZ look “racist”. Publishing tool my eye! I don’t trust NBC news to report high school football.

    NBC articles seem to leading lives as mysterious as that of the healtcare[dot]gov stock photo girl.

    • Ronald Green

      I really feel sorry for her, I’m sure she didn’t think she was signing up to become the target of a whole lot of people’s ire and they probably didn’t pay her much nor ask her did she mind them using her image like that. Lesson there is always read the fine print and never let your image go into the public domain, if you can help it.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (the true one)

    NBC news – truth no longer matters, only propaganda from our bosses.

  • vcferlita

    Somebody got a phone call.

  • LR99

    What else would you expect when the President of NBC has a private dinner with Obama!!

    Maybe the people who edited the George Zimmerman 911 tape have gone into website design…

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    I wonder what the “Dillyo” is too, NBC….Changing the narrative to hide the lies KING FINK OBAMA has been pressing (!) on us since 2007? No matter how you try to change, hide, or use 404 ERRORS to alter the TRUTH, you’ll NEVER get away with it! Jawamax 8<{D}

  • rennyangel2

    More liars liars pants of fire for ozero and ocare–can’t have too much truth loose.

  • http://lordfoggybottom.com/ BlahBlah

    All the comments I typed yesterday apply here too.

  • itsatax

    The paragraph that got stealth edited out has been replaced with WH talking points:
    http://weaselzippers.us/2013/10/29/developing-nbc-deletes-story-exposing-obama-administration/
    Stealth editing is more unethical that ditching the story in its entirety as far as I’m concerned. Would it be that hard to add a note saying “this article has been editied to comply with the demands of White House leg breakers”?

    • Republicanvet

      They want to act stealthily, but end up like a bull in a china shop.

      Hacks. All of them.

      • http://weaselzippers.us/ nickarama

        They wanted to stealthily change it/eliminate it, but they got caught, realized they were in a firestorm and changed it back. “Publishing tool” creates new paragraphs, deletes url! Hahaha

      • Marbran

        The problem today is a lack of integrity. Most of the current young generation were taught that nothing is ever their fault, the ends always justify the means, and the truth takes a back seat to party agenda. We have seen this dance before, and it never ends well, but people are easily swayed and controlled by promises of the “high life” so long as they shill for their masters.

  • Republicanvet

    What? Did their “publishing tool” get notified of an audit?

    • http://weaselzippers.us/ nickarama

      Their publishing tool forced them to cut two paragraphs and add a new one. Such an odd tool!

      • Thale Taxurfeet

        “Their publishing tool forced them to cut two paragraphs and add a new one. Such an odd tool!”

        If you were tasked with constantly revising perceptions in the ever changing BuckPassing environment of the Ministry of Truth, you too might become a bit odd.

        Sincerely,
        Winston Smith

    • audieho

      Their publishing tool had a nice chat with Valerie Jarrett.

  • Phebelyn

    NBC got spanked! Obama wasn’t having any truth getting out when he is getting so close to single payer. It’s a fight to 2014!

  • arttie

    Did they hire the obamacare programmers?

  • Norman Robart

    obviously censoring articles critical of the white house’s pet project.

  • jfitzy55

    You have to love those technical glitches that remove, and editing unflattering reporting by a complicit, but “professional” journalism entity. Amazing how the irrelevant parts weren’t affected.

  • HARP2

    When history is written it will show that everything and I mean EVERYTHING, had to be reviewed by Jarret first.

  • sjmom

    A lot of us saw and shared the article already so it’s going to be difficult to deny.

  • Invictus_Lux

    NBC got their vig out of the story in the classic way. They got off masta’s lease just long enough to wizz up their leg, frazzle their socks and demand a bone. Someone got paid to take the story down. Gov will let them get away with this 1-2 per year before it revokes their invitations to press conferences, social events and drums them out like they have Fox news.

  • AmericanMom

    Keeping in total lockstep, NBC did what a compliant suck-up would do when the president and JarJar Jarrett told them to imitate Obamacare and 404 it.

  • HARP2

    Someone should ask Jarret why THIS is in the cancellation letters.

    To meet the requirements of the new laws, most of our current plans can no longer be offered.

  • eeddggy

    MSNBC couldn’t get off the “Obama is a Blatant LIAR” story quickly enough this morning. The entire cast of Socialists on MSNBC appeared very uncomfortable.

  • JR48

    Let me translate: “S***, you posted that?? Pull that thing down, you need to edit some of that stuff or there will be hell to pay. Jesus, I can’t believe you did that. Oh wait, now people who’ve seen it are tweeting that there are changes, put it back up in it’s original form and spout something about technical glitches and apologize….”

    Twitchy is FOREVER! Long live TWITCHY!

  • Bob Young

    As Rush Limbaugh would say, NBC committed a random act of journalism, then apparently were told by whoever is in charge of the country, to knock it off.

  • Wag_a_Muffin (D)

    NBC IS a publishing tool.

  • John

  • Mama Bear

    Glitch my ass, who did they dig up dirty on to stop this article from being read any further? Herr Fuhrer 0dummeh and his NSA cronies scaring anyone and everyone.

  • QueenB ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    CRAZY all these glitches!

  • Larry Rappaport

    Is this not obviously overt people? That Obama came in as described by CNN’s
    Carroll Costello and threatened NBC for an accidental professional journalism performance? All I can say is that MSM is writing their own history at this point in our history as a nation. They allowed all lack of performance and non accountability of this President to fly away without question of which stink has completely permeated this institution. I think possibly they’re getting a bit tired of the threats as well but I defer. It’s your history MSM and with todays technology, will be the first time in our history where this will be recorded accurately, independently.

    • Marbran

      Makes me wonder what all the MSM ignored prior to the Internet. In hindsight, it’s clear that we’ve arrived here today out of ignorance, ignorance that willfully continues.

      • Marcy Cook

        Yes. Thank God for the internet or we would have been brainwashed so badly that we would have been led willingly along with rest of the sheeple.

  • ceemack

    Lou Dubois was right…in a way. They’re having problems with their publishing tools, all right. Problem is, they’re the tools.

  • kingdad

    This what happens when anyone tries to focus on the LIES and DISTORTIONS that emanate daily from the Oblacka White House. Between the in-house Media Oblacka Toadies blinding following the Deceitful one, to the WH Hackers that attack websites daring enough to print the truth about OCh-mpaCare, to the Professional Media Hacks that Oblacka’s WH employs, they do their best to restrict freedom of speech and to prosecute and punish those with the courage to stand up to the Black Reich and Der Fuhrer!

  • Jim Denney

    “That’s a nice looking FCC license ya got there, shame if anything were to happen to it.”

    “It appears this was nothing more than a technical glitch.”

    Lot of that going on with this administration.

    Obama got to them too? C’mon people, it’s NBC, they have been in obama’s pocket for 6 years. The person who wrote it was probably fired and the article nixed…..
