NBC Tells Obama Campaign Not To Use Its News Footage In Ads (Andrea Mitchell in the most recent) [View all]

10/6/12 1:47 PM EDT

NBC has asked President Barack Obama’s campaign to stop using the network’s footage in a recently released re-election ad, POLITICO has learned.

In a letter sent Friday night to Obama campaign manager Jim Messina, NBC told the Obama campaign to cease using network footage in a new 30-second spot, released shortly after Wednesday’s debate, in which Andrea Mitchell is shown on air citing an independent study stating that Mitt Romney’s tax plan would cost $4.8 trillion over 10 years, a source said.

NBC News has faced issues like this throughout the campaign, including a Romney campaign ad that featured Tom Brokaw.

“NBC News has not granted any campaign permission to use our news material. As is our practice, we have requested that the Obama campaign refrain from using NBC News material in this and future advertisements,” the network said in a statement.
