Now MSNBC is “reviewing” how that tape was edited to make Newtown residents look like
dailycaller.com ^ | 30 January, 2013 | Jim Treacher

Posted on 01/30/2013 11:26:42 AM PST by marktwain

Twitchy.com has been all over the story of NBC’s latest… I was about to say “latest ethical lapse,” but that would imply they have any ethics to begin with. Let’s just call it the latest example of NBC lying so egregiously, even a few other liberal media outlets are calling them out on it. Twitchy deserves our thanks for catching the lie and presenting the truth.

And now the cover-up begins at NBC. Erik Wemple at WaPo has the latest:

MSNBC is reviewing its portrayal of the testimony of Neil Heslin, the father of a Sandy Hook victim, at a legislative hearing in Hartford on Monday. The 33-second video clip in question… features a graphics box saying “Mocked and Loaded. Sandy Hook Victim’s Father Heckled by Gun Rights Advocates.”

“We’re reviewing the video in question,” says an MSNBC source.

Smart move, considering that Heslin wasn’t, in fact, heckled. Audience members merely answered a challenge that Heslin posed from the microphone.

Which isn’t stopping “news” outlets like BuzzFeed and HuffPo from continuing to spread the heckling story, because it confirms their biases. It’s too good to check.

So now MSNBC will “review” it, and in a few days they’ll put out a press release saying they’ve taken measures to ensure it won’t happen again, and that’ll be it. If somebody gets fired over it, they won’t tell us who. It’ll be just like their completely opaque response to the deceptively edited George Zimmerman 911 call.

And they’ll continue to do this kind of crap, because they have no incentive to stop. The left will continue to spread lies and disinformation, and it’ll be passed along by willing dupes who can’t or won’t look past their ignorance and lazy prejudices.

All we can do to fight this is tell the truth. Push back. Every day.

Every damn day.

Can MSNBC be sued by the people they accused of “heckling”?. That amounts to libel/slander, doesn’t it?

What about the portrayal of Adam Lanza's license plate? Hmmmm? Which is it?

Two different license plate numbers?

What would be a realistic incentive for news agencies to stop doing these things? No one ever knows until after the fact.

I learned a huge and valuable lesson when I was a junior in high school. The small private school I was in was closing and the Shreveport TV news came to interview some kids about it. What I said was "Its no secret the school has been having big financial problems the last couple of years so you can't say its shocking that this will be our last year here." What I saw myself say on TV that night was, "Its shocking that this will be our last year here."

Also, I found out the locally famous news guy was really a tiny tiny little jockey-sized man and he stood 3 feet closer to the camera to make him appear taller than us kids! Haha!

Pretty hard to read the numbers in that second photo, but they don’t look much different from the ones in the first photo.

They’ll falsify National Guard memos, photo shop pictures of Obama skeet shooting when he never has, they’ll edit 911 tapes, they’ll rig explosives on cars to show how they can “spontaneouly” explode, they’ll invent reprehensible condut by the Tea Party, and ignore any and every act of misfeasance, malfeasance, immorality, and incompetence by those they approve of politically. The mischief of the media is surpassing any harm our worst enemies could inflict on our country.

Last time they edited the tape to stir up “passion” there was a “spontaneous” terrorist attack planned for an airliner.

There are a lot of unanswered questions about Sandy Hook.

The media is covering up the details of Sandy Hook if not fabricating stories purely to fit Obama’s agenda. If the truth be known the gunman solely used handguns and not the evil AR-15 “assault rifle” and the school’s vaunted lock down plans utterly failed as the gunman had easy access to the school and classrooms. We may never know if the shooter’s Mother tried in vain to get her son committed or if she had secured her gun collection. Like with the Reichstag fire in 1933, which Hitler used as the pretext to end the liberty of the German people, a scapegoat has been found and the truth buried.

Years ago, my town's two liberal selectmen proposed making it unlawful for anyone owning -- not necessarily carrying, just owning -- a weapon (gun, knife, ninja star [I am not kidding], sword, mace, etc.) from stepping foot on any town property "to create an atmosphere free from fear."

The selectmen's meeting came and the entire building was filled with very angry gun and knife owners that spilled out of the meeting room and into the hall and outside. The cowardly Libs on the board looked like they had crapped their pants/dresses. They turned white as they listened to attendees and their proposal vanished without a trace.

Those two plate numbers look the same to me. I can clearly make out 872-YEO on the back of the car in the bottom picture. The only reason things may look different, is the fact that there is vegetation growing between the camera and the car in the bottom picture, and the bottom picture is just ever so slightly out of focus.

It still looks like the front to me. With vegetation across the 8 in the first segment, and pixelization of the numbers due to the slight out-of-focus nature of the original.

Do you fail to see the irony of accusing the media of fabricating stories, when you yourself are propagating an old, repudiated, inaccurate media account?

Nice try but no. How do you know 6 cars were towed? Why would they be towed?? Why wouldn’t a family member simply drive it home??? Towed for what reason??? Videos don’t show any other cars ‘taped off’. Try thinking next time!

Just setting a range of possibilities ~ little black car with different plate number is probably a different little black car ~ and there’s every reason to imagine at least 6 other cars could have been towed out of there.

Allegedly, '872 YEO' is not registered to Adam Lanza or Nancy Lanza but rather 'Christopher A. Rodia'. More here: http://usahitman.com/alcrcr/

It’s plat3 # 872-YEO in the first pic and something that looks like an 8 or 6 72-Y 7 or E O for the second pic. Occam’s Norelco tells me that the 8 or 6 is probably an 8 and that the 7 or E is probably an E.

Then there's this: Police: No Newtown conspiracy

Which refutes the usahitman site, and interviews Rodia.

Do your own search for Multiple shooters Sandy Hook.

It's pretty hard to have multiple shooters when: 1] more than one wasn't needed 2] the school was surrounded within 3 minutes 3] shooting was still going on inside while it was surrounded.

I’m not really taking any position on this, just asking the question- Seems like theres a great number of speculative info out there, as well as confused or erroneous police reporting about a shooter in custody (at first) as well as a dispatcher tape that is not really proof of much. There is a video of several people running into the woods, but if I had been around there, I might have left the scene in a hurry. Also a lot of confusion about who the shooter was (Adam or Ryan) and their mother being reported as a teacher at the school (not true). I don’t put anything beyond this administration after Fast and Furious fizzled on them. however.

Are you a freeper? or a troll? Cause it looks like the numbers are pretty similar between the two photos. As it seems so do a lot of other folks, too.

Are you perhaps one of those disinformaniacs the Obama campaign enlisted to drown out and discredit other voices...?

Southfield High School! St. Vincent's closed 3 years earlier and my class got 4 girls from there. One was kinda mean but her younger brother was a Romeo. I married him! :p

Good to know there is another Shreveport/Bossier grown Freeper out there!

WHATEVER. The vehicle which multiple media outlets show as the car which the shotgun was removed from the trunk of and parked directly in front of the school, bears the lic. plate #871 YEO.. This plate # allegedly is NOT registered in any Lanza name, including Nancy's. Why isn't the media investigating that? WHY ISN'T THE MEDIA INVESTIGATING ANY OF THIS? Don't you find that odd? Or that authorities told everyone to keep their mouths shut and even threatened to prosecute ANYONE posting information on social media websites that wasn't true?

Is anyone who questions the media propagandists a "disinformaniac"? Here's more food for thought.. http://www.genealogybank.com/gbnk/ssdi/doc/ssdi/v1:143EB37C71A1FA78 Zoom out (Ctrl -) then look at the date of death.

Did you read the link in my post 32? It has a reasonable explanation and an interview with the guy whose plates they supposedly were. All the websites claiming the plate number is not Lanza's (either his or the mom) is using the story that the other name was mentioned during the calls, and they don't say that it was confirmed not to be Lanza's. Pure errant speculation.

There is little to speculate about and the dispatch tape, among other things, proves it.

There is a video of several people running into the woods, but if I had been around there, I might have left the scene in a hurry.

You might want to leave this scene in a hurry because you sound like a confused you tube conspiracy-feeding videomaker.

What I find odd OISA is your inability to take a hint.

Anybody including you can check the personal property records of Connecticut to find out if Nancy Lanza owned a black Honda. Have you done that??? Why not??? Don't you find that odd???

Why don't you check those records and let us all know what you find. Until then cut the crap and give it a rest.
