Video: MSNBC falls for Palin/Eisenstadt hoax
Hot Air ^ | November 10, 2008 6:00 pm | Allahpundit

Specifically, this hoax. I’d love to throw stones at them and TNR, but people on our own side were taken in too.

Guys? The post at Shakespeare’s Sister revealing the hoax is linked on the first page of the Google results for “Martin Eisenstadt.” Remember these goofball viral “ads” for Giuliani? Anything look familiar?

The “Harding Institute for Freedom and Democracy”? Named after one of America’s worst presidents, whose term in office lasted two years with zero foreign policy accomplishments? Dude? Click the image to watch.

Folks, this one weapon we have against the msm....they are in such a blood lust state to get republicans that they report anything and ask questions later which creates this mud in face scenario. In football, when a defense is so aggressive and fast, they opponent is likely to run plays that make the supposed strength against them.

The msm can be had because they do not fact check or vett....shoot first, ask later, go to next news cycle, rinse-repeat.

I liked to see David Shuster read this. He was the one suspended at MSNBC for the “Pimping out” comment about Chelsea Clinton and is a real smarmy jerk!

Could this Eisenstadt’s alleged hoax be a cover for other unscrupulous/embittered aides? How do we know we can believe this liar or whoever is hiding behind him who evidently doesn’t exist?

Palin Fights Back! (They even twist this one!)

Posted by ExtraTV Staff on November 8, 2008 8:46 AM

Gov. Sarah Palin wants to clear up her recent geography mishap. The VP wannabe told CNN the McCain aides bashing her to the media are “jerks.”

McCain camp sources leaked the news that Palin didn’t know Africa was a continent. Palin informed the CNN reporter, “I consider [anonymous sources] cowardly.” Palin also clarified “it’s not true” she didn’t know the countries in the North American Free Trade Agreement.

http://extratv.warnerbros.com/2008/11/palin_fights_back.php

Do you think you are smarter than Sarah Palin? Take “Extra’s” quiz and find out!
Extra Quiz: Test your Knowledge!

Take this quiz and see if you can score higher than Governor Sarah Palin!

NOTE: The hatchet job EXTRA did on Palin Friday night was sinful. Watch the videos at the above links. There are comment sections for you to tell them what you think!

Ernest, CBS has been relentless over these Palin rumors.
First it’s a half hour of Katie Couric’s nasty innuendo, then half hour of ‘Inside Edition’, where they add some more, and then that Mario kid laughing it up for another half hour on Exta. All anti Palin. When they present her rebuttal, it’s done as joke.

I get one channel....and I can’t make myself turn it off!
Every day I’m more stunned than the day before at their propaganda.

This is a link from the article ( regarding Carl Cameron at Foxnews)and lenghty FR Thread....see first link at post #2.

The Palin Plan

*******************EXCERPT*********************

I think Gail Collins may be on to something here, even if only accidentally:

The Republicans are being way more nasty to Sarah Palin than the Democrats are to Lieberman. They’ve been portraying her as both a shopaholic and a woman who walks around in nothing but a bath towel, a hillbilly who’s also a prima donna. The leakathon climaxed this week when Fox News’s Carl Cameron announced that Palin did not know that Africa was a continent.

Agent provocateur poses as McCain advisor to slander Sarah Palin and sow divisiveness in the Republican Party.

Harmless fun.

I look forward to seeing his bony ass canned and sent to the children of North Korea.

What? No, no, that's just hoax violence.

No one could possibly take offense.

The Eisenstadt hoax is all part of Chris Matthews "job" to ensure Obama's presidency is a success..

Nothing to apologize for here..

This is MSNBC after all, it's not like it's a news organization.
