After setting this up as a racial gaffe and playing the clip two times, Cooper finally introduces the candidates own explanation. Of course by this point he’s made it clear what he believes through his dubious tone. He’s also unfairly characterized Santorum’s initial response which was that he wasn’t sure where or when he said this. Yes he offered one possible explanation but it was clear he wasn’t sure about this:
Cooper might have mentioned that people on the right and left have listened to the clip and come to the conclusion that Santorum did not say “black”, but I guess he isn’t feeling motivated to defend Santorum’s reputation. It’s not hard to figure out why. This is a hit job masquerading as fair treatment.
