MSNBC caught using edited clip from rally to attack Mitt Romney
Examiner ^ | September 28, 2012 | Joe Newby

Posted on 09/28/2012 2:05:49 PM PDT by Red Steel

In an effort to downplay Romney's support at a rally in Dayton, Ohio, MSNBC used an edited video to make it appear as though the crowd was screaming "Ryan, Ryan," Joel B. Pollack reported at Breitbart.com on Friday. But a closer look at the actual unedited footage from CSPAN tells a much different story.

MSNBC first aired the video on Wednesday, "prompting an embarrassed Joe Scarborough to mutter 'Oh, sweet Jesus' and a purse-lipped Mika Brzezinski to ask 'What’s wrong with those people,'” The Blaze reported on Thursday.

Beckett Adams wrote that MSNBC's Martin Bashir also used the clip, claiming that Ryan "overshadows" Romney.

According to Adams, if one listens closely to the video, "it’s obvious the audio in the clip has been adjusted," which Adams says is not unusual.

"However, where the controversy comes in is in the caption on the screen quoting the audience as chanting 'Ryan!' Why is that controversial? Because people who attended the event say that’s not what happened, and that the MSNBC video grossly misrepresents what actually occurred," he added.

On Thursday, a caller to Glenn Beck's program confirmed that the version put out by MSNBC was incorrect.

“The crowd was yelling,” a caller identified as Sherry recounted. “The crowd was screaming ‘Romney! Romney!’

...caller to Rush Limbaugh's program said the same thing, and The Blaze reported that several others have confirmed the story.

At some point, does not an infomercial jump from being “the press” (and the freedom thereof) to being an in-kind contribution? Somewhere there is a line that has been crossed.

Let's see if I have this straight. An NBC division aired a fake story?

Impossible!

at least they didn’t blow up any GMC pickups and show a guy who looks like Romney running from the scene.

At the Dem Convention they chanted “Obama! Obama!”
At the GOP Convention they chanted “USA! USA!”

Nuff said.

As the Food Stamp President sinks, the MSM pimps shout louder and longer and try every dirty trick they can. Progressives can never admit that they were wrong about anything, even the smallest inconsequential thing .... it’s their nature.

Heard about this from a caller (who was there) on Rush today.

Wonder if that phony, LIBERAL, pretend, Republitard, Morning Joe will apologize for the face palm and fess up by admitting their "error?"

Let's see: Are there any flying pigs around?

Then I suggest he will not. The Lame Stream Enamedia is getting more despicable and downright disgusting by the day.

This clip has been making the rounds. I saw it somewhere else.

What the MSM is doing is despicable beyond words. I wish there were some kind of legal consequences for this.

Conservatives need to somehow put MSNBC out of business.

In the real world if your competitor was caught doctoring clips to mislead the public you would use this to attack their credibility and honesty hoping you would gain more viewers. Unfortunately the media is not a competitive enterprize but a multi-headed monster with one goal. Destroy republicans and protect Obama. Tag line says it all.

Joe Scarborough is such a tool, Mr. Bones in the MSNBC minstrel show.

Romney’s FCC should yank the license from MSLSD and send a clear message that the media will no longer be allowed to be a propaganda arm of either side. Actions must have consequences.

There is another story here, much bigger, and far beyond mere MSNBC.

The Marxist/Dem/liberal media has clearly proven that they have no compunction for deception in order to prop up Mister Obama.

And, one suspects that Mister Obama is clandestinely pulling many or most of the "news" media strings (assigning blames, spiking true stories, and more.)

Thus, (again, one suspects) that the all debate questions have been thoroughly compromised, and Mister Obama is already rehearsing answers to questions that he secretly posed to himself.

Wow, this sort of manipulation has never happened there before...must have been a mistake...not deliberate...etc. etc.

It’s not even newsworthy anymore; I now assume that every single thing on the news, including the order of presentation, is politically manipulated.

Agreed. I can't believe that the First Amendment was intended to permit outright falsehoods and propaganda by media that are acting as house organs for one particular political party. I would love to see them challenged.

They tout themselves as fair and unbiased in their news reporting.

If I had money, I would sue for false advertising.

Of that I am certain.

I might not win because of it, but I would tell the MSM that they can KMA before I would attend one of their corrupt debates.

What else would you expect when your audience is the same people who received the FREE PHONES from the FOREIGNER.

At least they didn’t get an Ambassador killed and then lie about it.

One way Conservatives could help is to cease and desist from ever appearing on any of the MSNBC shows and STOP watching ever ever. Why give these traitors any ammo - they are beneath contempt. From Bill Gates on down.

No doubt this is true - If Romney & Ryan are smart, and they are, they will learn from the Dems’ playbook: Answer the question you want to handle and if they try to stop you, just look into the cameras and Tell America that you are sick and tired of these cretins deceiving We the People with their shilling for Barry Soetoro.

When Romney is elected he should ban MSNBC from the white house press briefings and be blunt and open in his reasoning.

They have showed they are no longer a news agency but a propaganda arm of the liberal democrats.
