Did Ed Schultz Edit Megyn Kelly to Make It Look Like She Called Harry Reid a ‘Terrorist’?
Mediaite ^ | April 21, 2014 | Matt Wilstein

Posted on 04/21/2014 1:57:04 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The story of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s 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 Bundy’s right to raise cattle on federally-protected land, liberal ones like MSNBC have taken the government’s side, best personified by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), who has now twice referred to Bundy’s supporters as “domestic terrorists.”

But with Fox doing so much actual defending of Bundy, did MSNBC’s Ed Schultz go too far last week when his show edited a montage of Fox’s talking heads to make it look like Fox’s 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 Fox’s 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 it’s “disrespectful” for Reid to call other people terrorists and in fact, “he is the terrorist, as far as I’m concerned, in this situation.”

Immediately after that statement, Schultz’s show cut to Kelly saying, “Mr. Reid is the one who’s 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 don’t 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. Kelly’s 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 don’t want to call Harry Reid a terrorist.”

Her comment caused Lynch to back off a bit: “I apologize,” he replied, “but I’m not going to be afraid of Harry Reid. He’s no greater than anybody else in this country.”

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.

The Chinese deal fell through, the focus s/b on Solar First that Harry Reid just broke ground with.

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.

MARCH 21, 2014

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.

* The EPA assigns one million acres to previous owners in Wyoming.

* The BLM Rustles cattle in Nevada.

* Now the USFS Rustles Cattle in New Mexico.

What will doormat Republican Speaker Boehner do now to punish these lawless Federal Bureaus?

BTW, have y’all 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 Reid’s 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 !

FORWARD!

Harry Reid is a mob-connected tool. Ed Schultz is just a tool.

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".

"But with Fox doing so much actual defending of Bundy"

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.

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.

"...as a means of capitalizing on Sarah Palin's stupidity..."

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.
