Joe Scarborough attempted to dig himself out of a hole this morning, only dug himself deeper.

In a dishonest and misleading attempt to defend yet another one of his unrelenting, arrogant, smug, anti-Romney attacks -- but one that blew up in his face over the weekend -- Scarborough claimed this morning that MSNBC did not doctor audio to make it sound as though a crowd chanting "Romney" was chanting "Ryan." And what Scarborough committed in doing so was a lie of omission.

What Scarborough was referencing was a clip MSNBC broadcast all of last week that made it look as though an arrogant, hapless, and insecure Mitt Romney attempted to change a "Ryan" chant at a campaign rally into a chant that that included his name.

Because the media loves to use willing Republicans to undermine Romney, Scarborough's reaction to the clip got the most media attention. You can watch it here.

Note: To emphasize the crowd was chanting "Ryan," MSNBC added a subtitle that read: "Crowd: Ryan!"

A day or two after the clip aired and MSNBC had re-broadcast it endlessly, it was discovered that the crowd was not chanting "Ryan;" that in fact the crowd was chanting "Romney." Numerous on-the-scene reports filed in real-time reported the crowd chanting "Romney," including the New York Times.

This means two things...

1. MSNBC's subtitle was incorrect.

2. The impression that an arrogant, insecure Romney wanted his name added to the crowd's chant is exactly wrong. The truth is that a gracious Romney wanted Ryan's name added to the chant.

Now that you know the facts, watch Scarborough's misleading defense of his and his network's behavior last week:

I’m glad the weasel Scarborough has been exposed again, but in the end it matters little since it’s only the rat channel, MSNBC.

Too bad he didn’t dig a hole big enough for the dead intern found in his office.

I’ve always thought Joe Scarborough looks like a cartoon. He’d be easy to draw; just sketch a human thumb with its features all clumped up together in the middle of its face and add eyeglasses.

Scarborough lied and he did it on purpose.

Pat Caddell slams the media: They have become an “enemy of the people” (video 26:00)

The media as it is has to be destroyed. No other political fights can be won until the press is completely exposed, discredited and humiliated for being just what Pat has called them out to be. Enemies of the people. It has to be the number one fight or all else is lost.

Joe Scarborough looks exactly like a penguin.

Rush talked about this last week, and had a caller who was at the event that day. They were indeed shouting, “Romney.”

He sold out to keep from being indicted, but isn’t that what happens to all Republicans who make a principled stand? He was a great voice when he was a Congressman from Pensacola. The notoriety of the public eye opened his defenses to the dark side.
