White House rewriting history

E&P has the story. For some reason the WH is trying to get people to change what Scotty actually said.

They want the transcripts to read: "I don’t think that’s accurate." It audio sounds a little odd, but I watched the video and Scotty does cut in on Gregory and said "that's accurate."

What's that saying: Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face.

Wonkette has more about the story.

Think Progress follows up too.
