NBC reports Obozo shook hands with Mugabe--woops! story changed to omit Mugabe

Lots of folks on the conservative side constantly catch the Lying Media covering for Obozo, to include rewriting history and editing his comments to make them make sense (after a fashion).  Here's yet another one:

Obie went to South Africa to attend Mandela's funeral.  While he was there he shook hands with lots of heads of state.  Here's the original NBC News version, from their website:
On his way to the rostrum, Obama also shook the hand of Robert Mugabe, the strongman ruler of Zimbabwe, and hugged Dilma Rousseff, the president of Brazil...
This was also noted by the UK "Telegraph:"
In today’s ceremony in South Africa, Mr Obama also shook the hand of Robert Mugabe, the president of Zimbabwe, and greeted Dilma Rousseff, the president of Brazil...
But just an hour or two later, the NBC version had somehow been changed to this:
On his way to the rostrum, Obama also hugged Dilma Rousseff, the president of Brazil...
Uh...what happened to shaking hands with the bloody thug Mugabe?  Remember, NBC didn't just make a mistake here, as the also Telegraph reported it.  So what happened?

Now, the usual rule of journalism is if you get something wrong and have to change a story, you admit the error and make a point of noting why it was wrong.  NBC didn't do that.  Why did they yank the part about Mugabe without a word of explanation? 

Maybe NBC's news division will comment--probably just after the FBI interviews the Benghazi survivors.  Or just after that lying bitch at the IRS decides to come clean.  But until NBC tells us, I'm going with the theory that showing Ogabe shaking hands with another black African dictator would be too distressing an association for Democrats.
