1 or 2 minutes are missing from the leaked Romney video, according the journalist who obtained it. Mother Jones’ David Corn says his source told him that the recording device “inadvertently shut down or timed-out” during Romney’s speech, and had to be turned back on. “[A]t most, one to two minutes were missed,” Corn told Politico. In response, the conservative activists at Breitbart.com denounced the video’s legitimacy, saying that “there is new reason to suspect manipulation” on the part of Mother Jones when “a large portion of video” is missing. Mother Jones released a total of 67 minutes of video from the event, so the missing footage would amount to roughly 3% of the complete product.
