Skip to comments.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.
What are those two little girls doing in a toy car with that crazy actor Johnny Lewis?
11 people saw it all.
I knew that pic would come in handy some day.
MSNBC caught in another crafted stunt. What a shocker... not.
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.
You mean MSDNC was practicing their propaganda again?
I used to like Joe Scarborough, but that was back in the middle nintys, since he started to work for MSNBC, he changed a lot, so I stopped watching his show, clearly he sold out to be on TV, oh well, to each his own I guess
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.
“Ive always thought Joe Scarborough looks like a cartoon. Hed 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.”
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.”
Plenty more. Just put Joe dead intern into google
Scarborough is mentally ill.
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.
every time I see Obamas forward logo or msnbcs lean forward logo I laugh I wonder why they just combine the two slogans Obama and msnbc, bend over.
