CBS News Sandbags Tea Party in Madison - Their Video Gives It Away [Update at 14, 52 (Video@7.05min)
See BS ^ | April 16, 2011

Posted on 04/16/2011 5:41:20 PM PDT by comps4spice

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!

Great Catch
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.

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.

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.

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.

This photo is from today's rally, in the Journal-Sentinel.

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.

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)?

Since the sign was there today; there is only one other explanation...the person holding the sign is an idiot.

If you go to the Big Government.com website and look at the video of the Sarah Palin speech, you can see the Vote Kloppenburg sign at the 7:45 minute mark.

Actually comps, I’m watching Palin’s speech from today and that sign is indeed in the audience. Go figure why some union lunkhead would be waving it on the 16th but that picture is from today.

Good eye anyway though.

It was cold, windy and it started snowing right about when Sarah took the stage. We have horrible weather here in WI. Horrible. Just a week ago, we were getting ready for the tornadoes, yesterday was high wind warnings with gusts to 50mph and today, snow. I knew Sarah probably loved that it snowed for her today.

“They just can’t let it go.”

These people, who so wanted to be unlike their parents, are just like them. You know the type: the ones who used to creep you out as a kid, saying stuff about how when they were young, “In my day,...” or “Well, when I was about X years old, I remember the time...” and go on to lament and resent the picaune—every last one—wrongs done to them. The 60s generation is roughly in its sixties now for real, and they sound small and petty and just downright nasty, like the mean-spirited adults that they and we ran away from.

And these 60s children as adults are doing their best to institutionalize the mean-spiritedness and iron-fisted rule they rebelled against as young men and women. Talk about selling out! Wanting freedom to do as they pleased, they are enchained by their own ghosts, preaching that these same chains are ‘good.’ How strange to think that those who ran off to the open road and big city have boxed in their own worldviews with the parochial small-mindedness they sought to escape.

They probably brought the sign to both rallies.

I don’t see a white piece of paper hanging off the yellow sign. You can see the entire bottom of the yellow poster. No matter which side the white paper was attached to, you’d see it if it was attached to this yellow sign. Unless this picture of the yellow poster was taken after someone told the person with the yellow poster that the election was over, and it might be a good idea to take the white piece of paper off.

For the same reason people had Kerry bumper stickers on their cars until they scraped them off for Obama stickers?
