The story of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundys armed standoff with federal authorities has become one of those seemingly local stories that ends up exploding across national media because of its convenient partisan narrative. While conservative-friendly outlets like Fox News have taken to defending Bundys right to raise cattle on federally-protected land, liberal ones like MSNBC have taken the governments side, best personified by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), who has now twice referred to Bundys supporters as domestic terrorists.
But with Fox doing so much actual defending of Bundy, did MSNBCs Ed Schultz go too far last week when his show edited a montage of Foxs talking heads to make it look like Foxs primetime star Megyn Kelly thought the domestic terrorist comment was better suited to Sen. Reid?
On Friday afternoon, Schultz presented his thesis that Fox News was rushing to defend Bundy and his associates from the admittedly inflammatory language put forth by Senator Reid. As a prime example, the host pointed to Dennis Michael Lynch, a filmmaker present at the recent standoff with authorities, who had appeared on Foxs The Kelly File the night before.
In the montage that Schultz aired, Lynch claimed that if there was any domestic terrorism happening that the Bundy ranch, it was perpetuated by the government, not by the people. Shortly after, Lynch can be seen saying its disrespectful for Reid to call other people terrorists and in fact, he is the terrorist, as far as Im concerned, in this situation.
Immediately after that statement, Schultzs show cut to Kelly saying, Mr. Reid is the one whos calling more attention to this. It was over, people were moving on. He is the one who keeps stoking this fire. Taken back-to-back, especially if you dont notice the quick flash-cut between clips, it appeared that Kelly agreed with her guest that Sen. Reid acts like a terrorist.
But if you watch the actual Kelly File segment in context, without cuts, one finds a very different story. Kellys statement about Reid stoking this fire actually came before Lynch referred to him as a terrorist. In the original segment on Fox, as soon as Lynch called Reid a terrorist, Kelly jumped in and said, point-blank: You dont want to call Harry Reid a terrorist.
Her comment caused Lynch to back off a bit: I apologize, he replied, but Im not going to be afraid of Harry Reid. Hes no greater than anybody else in this country.
Watch the MSNBC video below:
Reid is a terrorist, and a scum bag..only after that land to hand it right over to the Chinese..that’s what this is all about..oh and libs would be rushing to Bundy’s defense if he were a liberal, and the Occupy Bowl Movement were defending him
Ed Schulz is a reverted form of Anthropoid, and Megyn Kelly is usually very sharp... He is jealous of Megyn, because most people think Schulzy is a few cards short of a deck, and can never finish his game of Free Cell...
Reid is no terrorist. He is a federal government bully and is simply furious that he isn’t getting his way.
US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid joins Moapa Band of Paiutes Chairwoman Aletha Tom, First Solar CEO James Hughes, LADWP director of power system planning and development Randy Howard, and the Moapa Band of Paiutes Tribal Council to break ground on the 250 MW Moapa Southern Paiute Solar Project.

The Bundy grazing property was never part of any actual solar complex, but rather the environmental offest required as part of the permitting process for the First Solar project in a different part of the state.

What will doormat Republican Speaker Boehner do now to punish these lawless Federal Bureaus?
BTW, have yall noticed that Obama is very effectively using these lawless events by his Bureaus to distract from the NSA, Benghazi, IRS and Obamacare Scandals?
Is the modern day equivalent of the KKK the Bureau of Feudal Land Management, (BFLM) ?
If so, then Feudal Lord Reid would then be The Grand Dragon of the BFLM.
Feudal Lord Reids Rustlers are hired guns, who are furious but not fast, which also applies to their multimillionaire Leader: Feudal Lord Reid.
With the past Democrat-based KKK, and now the present Democrat-controlled BFLM, ethics be damned, as abject fear is the main goal of both of these Medieval Outlaw Gangs, past and present.
Ethics will be justified later by Liberals who will write the revised PC History of these times, past and present; of powerful men with outlaw hatred toward free people in America, Black or White, poor or rich.
The Jackboot Heel of Democat Tyranny is now upon us, AGAIN !
Harry Reid is a mob-connected tool. Ed Schultz is just a tool.
so now we edit ed to make him say odd things?
Notice the similarity in the way democrats react when they don't get their own way or when they are challenged.
Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Boxer, both of the Clintons, etc., etc....
They throw tantrums like the spoiled brats that they are.
Then they revert to name calling, attacking their opposition, attacking their families - even the children (think of what they did to Sarah Palin's children).
Then, as soon as anyone responds to their filth and diatribes, they start lecturing us about being more civil and abandoning "the politics of personal destruction".
I don't know if it was intentional or not but that statement is hilarious.
Matt Wilstein, you are a liar!
Matt Wilstein started Gotcha Media immediately following the 2008 Presidential Election, initially as a means of capitalizing on Sarah Palin's stupidity.
Originally from Arlington, Massachusetts, Matt came to New York City to attend Columbia University and hasn't left since.
He worked for Obama for America! And we are going to listen to anything this *ss has to say about anyone else?!

IOWs he’s a card carrying commie.
Dingy is a domestic enemy that we were warned about..
Reid is treasonous and a tyrant.
Who is Ed Schultz?
Well all I know about him is that he beat his wife and that he is a total douche bag whack job
Even a blind squirrel finds the occasional acorn.
We don't need to edit anything. I will stand up and yell from the roof top, that dingy Harry is a domestic terrorist, and if he is not, he certainly is a slime sucking scum bag POS MoFo. I don't mean to insult scum bags who suck slime, by equating them with him.
Meanwhile, six years later, Governor Sarah Palin commands a six figure speaking fee, has two well-paid television jobs, is a three-time New York Times best-selling author, is polling right behind Secretary Hillary Clinton for 2016, is being asked to run for the United States Senate in two separate states, has been acknowledged as prescient about the Obamacare death panels and the Ukraine situation, is a congressional and statehouse kingmaker par excellence and has an apparently happy marriage and family. Let us guess how much Matt Wilstein has progressed since 2008...
Good post. I am a fan of Sarah. She learned really fast once she was exposed to the tactics of the Progressives. She did not expect to be blind sided by McCain’s team.
But they were more concerned about destroying a conservative than with winning the presidency.
She is incredibly smart.
