The Mystery of the Missing Question

So, on an NBC transcript of an interview by Andrea Mitchell of James Risen we had this exchange:

Mitchell: Do you have any information about reporters being swept up in this net?

Risen: No, I don't. It's not clear to me. That's one of the questions we'll have to look into the future. Were there abuses of this program or not? I don't know the answer to that

Mitchell: You don't have any information, for instance, that a very prominent journalist, Christiane Amanpour, might have been eavesdropped upon?

Risen: No, no I hadn't heard that.

The first Q&A is there, the second has been disappeared. Why?
