Catching Mitt

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was being interviewed on NBC's "Today" show this morning, and the network had the audacity to put the words "NBC Exclusive" in the upper left-hand corner of the screen.

"Exclusive"? As if to suggest this was something no other network could get? Don't make me laugh. Political candidates, especially those running for president, will talk to any TV news organization that shows up with a camera and a microphone.

"Today" might have been the only show on which Romney was appearing at that particular moment, but given that he was spending the morning trying to build momentum after last night's GOP debate, I'm sure he appeared on numerous other news broadcasts.

Sorry, NBC, but simply calling something an "exclusive" doesn't make it so.
