I caught the CBS News evening report tonight for the first time in about 2 decades. They led off with a report of Sarah Palin's speech in Wisconsin, and they of course provided liberal spin.
They claim there were far more liberals (i.e. union thugs) than Tea Partiers (claiming the thugs surrounded the smaller Tea Party crowd).
But something caught my eye during the report, specifically when they did a pan of the "liberal crowd"...but they pulled a Dan Rather by using video footage from some liberal rally prior to the April 5th Wisconsin Supreme Court election.
How do I know this? Well, if you go have a look at the video in the link above, pay close attention at the 18 second mark. There is a campaign sign being held by a liberal saying to "Vote Klappenburg on April 5th".
Here's a screen capture of the 18 second mark in the video (note that I included the entire title of the CBSNews.com video:
Why would someone come to a rally on April 16th with a sign for an election that has already been held (and lost by the libs)? Because the footage isn't from today...it's from earlier this year.
Why would See BS do this? No other reason than they didn't have the visuals to prove their were more union thugs than Tea Partiers...so they did a tried and true See BS method: they made it up!
SeeBS Nooooooze: When the facts don’t fit, we make up sh*t.
I hope you send it to NBC ABC and Fox, even CNN. I bet they’d show it just to make cbs look like the liars they are
Good eye! CBS has always been in the tank for their messiah Obama..they will NEVER EVER do anything to put him in a negative light, they’d rather slit their own wrists then do so..because they made him, they don’t want to see him fail no matter what, it would make them look bad. But LOL they can’t even come up with better footage then using something from last week, WOW epic fail CBS, epic fail. Dan Rather would be proud
Nice catch. Not surprising but it’s good that it was caught. Media did the same thing with the rallies in D.C.
Just give them a call and ask them what happened to union turnout on April 5 because on that day despite the unions and Obama throwing everything they had at defeating Prosser they LOST.
watch the tape of Sarahs speech.
That sign WAS at todays rally.
The GOP has done much better than the MSM at putting out the Tea Party Fire. I am really not all excited about it at this point. The Good Old Pussycats can KMA.
so you’re not excited
what does that have to do with CBS clearly lying about protestors at this rally?
LOL What a doofus!!
I saw that shot on the live internet feed from the CBS station in Madistan that I was watching. Some one could easily be carrying that sign to show their lib street creds. I suppose they could have inserted it in real time, but I doubt it.
I saw that when I was watching earlier today and they panned the camera over to the protesters and I thought what the heck, don’t they know that election is already over and Klopper LOST. The lefties are such dummies.
This needs to go the Drudge. It’s GOLD. Good work..!
CBS didn’t lie. This time.
That sign was at todays event. Breitbart has the video her entire speech and whomever was filming it panned to the union crowd and sure enough, that sign was there.
That sign was at today’s rally.
Terrific catch. Send it to Trump
That may not be entirely accurate. Chances are the confused liberal just needed a sign supporting Kloppy--unless the libs brought their "death panels" banner to both protests. More likely, it's an idiot lib who still has Kloppenburg signs in his front yard as well.
Well, if it was there, it shows just how idiotic liberals are in two ways: 1) That the guy came with the sign and 2) the liberals at See BS ran the footage with that sign.
Since the sign was there today; there is only one other explanation...the person holding the sign is an idiot.
