How MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell distorts a Romney story
IBD Editorials ^ | June 19, 2012 | ANDREW MALCOM

Posted on 06/19/2012 9:40:53 AM PDT by Kaslin

Remember the fun the MSM had with Republican VP Dan Quayle in a school room holding up a mis-spelled word, without mentioning that the class teacher was the one who'd written out the word incorrectly?

Or how they made Republican President George H.W. Bush look stupid at a grocery store photo op making conversation with a checkout clerk about how the scanner worked? The repetitive media meme for Republicans is 'out of touch.'

Well, this may be the best/worst one yet: Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC making fun of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney at a rally describing the purchase of a hoagie at a local store. Watch this video and see the impression you get from MSNBC's Romney film clip.

Then scroll down for what Romney really said.

Rush is doing his normal excellent job of eviscorating MSNBC as I type.

Rush correctly states that this is institutional corruption on the part of NBC.

Expect NBC to win a Pulitzer however.

Dan Quayle in a school room holding up a mis-spelled word, without mentioning that the class teacher was the one who'd written out the word incorrectly?

What is that about?

Here is a video of Dan Quayle coaching a student to add the extra "e": Dan Quayle Misspells 'potato'

That's not the teacher, that's Quayle himself.

It's not a terrible mistake, but let's not make up stories about it.

Just another example of how parochial and insulated the New York Media is. In this case, the extra "context" isn't even needed. It is amazing. In fact, the small chains on the East Coast are the only places I've seen this technology. I'll bet Andrea Mitchell a thousand dollars that she can't find this order system on her own (no internet help, etc.) in use in any sandwich place in Silicon Valley.

I’m eating a Wawa hoagie right now (smoked turkey and bacon, mmmmm....). What Romney said (even in the edited crap) is exactly how you order a sandwich at Wawa.

...sounds to me that Andrea has never been to a Wawa herself.

Rush needs to take Andrea Mitchell’s explanation and edit it to make it sound like she’s the dummy she really is. “Illustrating the absurd with the absurd”, as he’s fond of saying.

So Andrea Mitchell, Alan Greenspan’s wife, is trying to do what MSNBC is now notorious at doing — lie about the news. This is not an isolated problem with MSNBC, it is part of the Mainstream Media culture. Anything that interferes with the MSM world view is distorted or not reported. Short form: They LIE!

Nobody would do it that way any more. They'd put out an ap for your I-Phone for you to order before you got to the store.

The look on Andrea Mitchell’s face as she is looking at Palin is one of loathing. Anyone who feels the way she does about people she is covering shouldn’t be a “reporter”.

Just think, they could rig the same software with a network of roach coaches so that you could look them up, order, and your GPS would direct you to the coach drive-up window.

That way, not only are you not paying an order taker, you aren't even buying land. You could move the restaurants to wherever the people are at a particular time of day and they could still find you. No signs, no parking lots. I'll bet there's even plenty of parking space these days at various strip malls to rig a deal for quasi permanent spots.

Some enterprising lawyer, senator or house member needs to sue MSNBC and NBC for making an unreported in-kind campaign contribution to the 0bama campaign. Since the report was a lie and not news, it has to be a campaign commercial.

Heh...

Why would anyone care about what romney said about a sandwich?

Im more interested in the fact that hes a socialist.

The media is always gonna go after someone with an “R” after his name. Well, maybe not too hard this time being that romney is, after all, a fellow acolyte of socialism.

Ill not support the GOP’s socialist nominee (almost nominee), even if the media trashes (sort of) him.

I dont do knee jerk, I do carefully thought out.

If the media wants to trash their best chance at beating limited government conservatives then I say more power to em...

I think its kinda ironic that the “team mentality” that drives some conservatives to support their own undoing also drives a lot of socialists to instinctively work against their best chance of finally defeating organized opposition to socialism in this country.

So IF romney actually makes it out of the convention as the nominee, It will be because so many in the GOP are blinded by D -vs- R and cannot see that they are now supporting their own demise. A president romney will still be a socialist and the gop will offer no opposition to his agenda. And any opposition the GOP conservatives do muster will be shutdown by dem socialists coming over to work with their ideological brothers and sisters in the gop. The limited government anti-socialist/statist conservatives will be homeless after this. You cant fight a war, much less win one, without a place to launch your attacks from. This is ALL right there to see. You dont even need a crystal ball. If the dem socialists support romney they will ultimatum win.

The ONLY hope we have is that the idiots on the democrat side are just as blinded by the same “team” mentality that they cannot see romney as their greatest weapon against us. This time around I will take great pleasure in the predictable media attacks on the GOP candidate. I will also take advantage of the fact that folks like me will make a HUGE impact on this election because we can swing (in my case, Wisconsin) away from romney fairly easily. The GOP better not underestimate this, and they better take this seriously. Our fight is NOT against the democrats its against socialism/statism so there will be NO hesitation in working against the GOP candidate should they nominate a socialist.

How do we avoid this? Brokered convention and choose a candidate that’s not a socialist. Take this as a plea for sanity rather than a threat, but know that if the GOP chooses the unthinkable and nominates a socialist there will be no going back. We will part ways for this election. The GOP will be fighting not only the dems to stupid to realize romney and the GOPe are on their side, but folks like me as well, and there are enough of us who are determined enough to make sure some needed states dont go his way.

Not to condone the MSNBC/Andrea Mitchell distortion, but I think it’s safe to say that Mitt Romney does not frequent WAWAs. that said, I’m sure he’s familiar with touch screens.
