Mitt Romney Cut From Bin Laden Documentary

Documentary Starts 2 Days Before the Election

On November 4th, which is 2 days before the election of the American President, the US channel National Geographic shows the documentary Seal Team 6: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden (earlier title: Code Name Geronimo) that deals with the hunt for the terrorist leader.

As the New York Times reports, a scene was cut out of the documentary in which the presidential candidate Mitt Romney is seen making a statement back in 2008 where he makes it clear that the search for Osama Bin Laden should be stopped. The president of the channel defends the cut because they don't want to influence the election so shortly before it takes place and don't want to make propaganda for either side. Therefore, he insisted that the Romney scene should be cut out.

However, the NYT also reports that the film was changed in order to make Obama appear in a better light. The doc's director disagrees: Obama was of course always a part of the film but has less scenes than in earlier versions of the film.

It may never be proven if those allegations are correct or whether the Weinstein Company influenced the final product. Harvey Weinstein, who bought the doc's rights in Cannes, is a supporter of Obama and known for his use of publicity (e.g. the controversy surrounding The Bully Project).
