Skip to comments.New Hampshire Public Radio Edits Debate Tape to Favor the Democrat
Posted on 10/15/2012 6:59:48 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
New Hampshire Public Radio (NHPR) conducted a gubernatorial debate on 19 September 2012. One of the questions had to do with the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), an effort to limit greenhouse gases by auctioning CO2 allowances (sounds like cap and trade to me). Republican Ovide Lamontagne favors repeal of RGGI, while Democrat Maggie Hassan favors keeping it. Watch and listen to their answers at about 32 minutes into the debate. They are in a lightning round, with a ten-second limit to answers.
Ms. Hassan's answer, from the previously linked video, follows:
"I was proud to be a sponsor of that tax, eh, the energy efficiency program because it has saved businesses millions and millions of dollars and created over 400 jobs."
Subsequently, NHPR has rebroadcast the debate, and Ms. Hassan's answer has been changed to:
"I was proud to be a sponsor of the energy efficiency program because it has saved businesses millions and millions of dollars and created over 400 jobs. The missing phrase is "that tax, eh[.]"
Those three words, seven letters, go right to the heart of the RGGI issue. Opponents look on RGGI as a tax; proponents look at it as manna from green heaven. Ms. Hassan's millions of dollars and 400 jobs have not materialized. Maggie is a tax, borrow, and spend lefty liberal of the worst kind. Her answer referring to RGGI as a tax is a true gaffe -- that is, inadvertently telling the truth.
RGGI is not living up to the promises of the eco-zealots -- big surprise there. New Hampshire paid the seventh-highest electric rate in the country in 2008, fifth in 2009, and fourth in 2010. And there's no place to go but up, as another rate hike is coming.

NPR = DNC.
RE: NPR = DNC.
So, why not defund them?
Romney should bring this example and others up in the next debate when Obama brings up Big Bird again ( I know Newt would ).
NPR, doing the work honest people refuse to do!!!
In the old days New Hampshire Public Radio would have gotten away with this... and they still will with many people. But each year they’ll lose trust and credibility - a drip here - a drip there... until one day they discover they’ve become the punch line of a joke. Not a very nice one ...
