Mitt Romney Considers Withdrawing NBC Attack Ad Mitt Romney told NBC’s “Today” show on Monday that he would consider removing an attack ad featuring a clip from the network’s nightly newscast 15 years ago.

The ad in question, which the Romney campaign calls “History Lesson” features former-“NBC Nightly News” anchor Tom Brokaw, in a 1997 newscast, discussing ethics penalties handed down by a Congressional panel to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who is now Romney’s rival for the 2012 presidential nomination.

“We’ll sit down with the lawyers, talk to the folks at NBC, and make a decision on that front,” Romney said on “Today.” Romney’s campaign said over the weekend it believes use of the clip falls does not violate copyright laws.

NBC has requested that Romney take down the ad. Watch the ad below:
