A new ad out from Mitt Romney's campaign that uses comments made by journalists has drawn fire from one of the people used in the ad.
The ad, titled "Hope and Change?," aims to shame President Obama for running a uniquely negative campaign, in contrast to the more optimistic campaign he ran in 2008. It includes clips of Bob Schieffer, the host of CBS's Face the Nation; David Brooks, a conservative columnist at The New York Times; and and Time Magazine's Mark Halperin, all of them talking about the negative aspects of Obama's campaign strategy.
"Whatever happened to hope and change? Now it seems he's just coming right out of the box with these old fashioned negative ads," says Schieffer in a heavily-edited clip that makes it appear as though he was making a statement, when in reality he was asking Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod a question.
Schieffer sounded off on the ad on his show on Sunday, saying he was "shocked" by it and acknowledging that it puts him in a difficult spot as a journalist to appear in a political ad.
"I have no affiliation with the Romney campaign," he said on Face the Nation. "This was done without our permission."
