  • Romney, MSNBC, and the McGurk Effect

    Commentary Magazine ^ | September 29, 2012 | John Steele Gordon
    It would seem that MSNBC has been caught in an act that can only be called tantamount to journalistic prostitution. Ace of Spades reports (h/t Instapundit) that the cable news network ran a clip showing an airport rally where Mitt Romney introduces Paul Ryan and the audience starts shouting, according to the chyron at the bottom of the screen, “Ryan! Ryan!” and Romney interrupts saying, “No, it’s Romney-Ryan! Romney-Ryan!” This, of course, makes Romney look both churlish and pathetic at the same time. The only trouble is that the crowd wasn’t yelling “Ryan! Ryan!” it was yelling “Romney! Romney!” when...
  • MSNBC Caught--Again--Twisting Video to Attack Romney

    Once again, the Democrat propaganda network known as MSNBC has been caught editing video to slander Mitt Romney. This morning on Morning Joe, co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough featured a video of a rally with Romney and running mate Paul Ryan in Dayton, OH. The crowd chanted "Romney! Romney!" but MSNBC added a caption to make it seem that the crowd was chanting "Ryan! Ryan!" and rejecting Romney.

    This breaking story comes straight from The Blaze. A clip from a recent Romney/Ryan rally has recently been played over and over at MSNBC highlighting what appears to be an embarrassing moment on the campaign trail for Governor Romney. Originally aired on Wednesday's "Morning Joe," the clip shows Paul Ryan introducing Romney as the MSNBC-added text appears on the screen proclaiming that the crowd is shouting "Ryan!" Romney gets the mic and asks the crowd to say "Romney/Ryan!" Joe Scarborough covers his face and grumbles out the words, "Sweet Jesus." Then the Blaze received a call from one of the...

    In an effort to downplay Romney's support at a rally in Dayton, Ohio, MSNBC used an edited video to make it appear as though the crowd was screaming "Ryan, Ryan," Joel B. Pollack reported at Breitbart.com on Friday. But a closer look at the actual unedited footage from CSPAN tells a much different story. MSNBC first aired the video on Wednesday, "prompting an embarrassed Joe Scarborough to mutter 'Oh, sweet Jesus' and a purse-lipped Mika Brzezinski to ask 'What’s wrong with those people,'” The Blaze reported on Thursday.

    Americans are fast turning to mobile devices to get their news, resulting in stunning viewership declines for CNN and existence-threatening readership drops for newspapers, according to a new Pew Research Center survey. The winners: social network sites, online news and websites like the Drudge Report and Yahoo. In Pew's latest look at trends in news consumption, Americans said that they have turned away from CNN. In just four years, the percentage of those who say they watch CNN has dropped from 24 percent to 16 percent.

    The New York Post reported Egyptian-American columnist Mona Eltahawy has been arrested for defacing an anti-Muslim ad in the New York subway system. The video shows her spraying pink paint on the ad while a supporter of the ad tries to block her. She's a journalist for censorship. Eltahawy, a former Reuters correspondent, has been a recent favorite of CNN and MSNBC’s weekend morning shows to discuss Egypt, and she often smears together the Islamist “right wing” and the American right wing, as she did on Melissa Harris-Perry just 11 days ago [video and transcript below]: Read more: http://newsbusters.org/blogs/tim-graham/2012/09/26/cnn-and-msnbc-pundit-arrested-vandalizing-anti-muslim-ad-ny-subway-syste#ixzz27cSJt84l

In particular, the release of the tax information was a pleasant surprise –released without pre-announcement or fanfare. Romney gave information that dates back to 1990 which ought to close Harry Reid’s mouth for a time .....–it would be absolutely wonderful if the “right” would get such a disclosed-documentary surprise from President Barack Obama. ...What are Americans on the “left” afraid of learning about Obama?

"Let's explain this redistribution issue because we have not authenticated this 14-year-old tape from Loyola College when Barack Obama was a state senator. So because we have not independently at NBC news and MSNBC authenticated it, we're not airing it," Mitchell said. "But the basic issue is they're accusing President Obama, as John Sununu said to be yesterday, of class warfare. That is trying to...

Hours before the killing, Romney issued a statement accusing President Obama of having sympathized with those making the attacks on the U.S. consulate. He called it disgraceful.

    MSNBC's Touré Neblett Reacts to Ryan's Speech: For Women and Minorities, 'Our Rights Do Not Come From God or Nature' Near the end of his Wednesday night speech at the Republican National Convention, vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan told his audience and the nation that "sometimes, even presidents need reminding, that our rights come from nature and God, not from government." John Hayward at Human Events noted that MSNBC's Touré Neblett did not handle Ryan's self-evident assertion very well. In fact, Thursday morning, Toure went into a bit of a tirade: “He loves this line of ‘our rights come from God...

    Fierce GOP critic Chris Matthews of MSNBC got into a confrontation with some delegates to the convention early Friday morning and showed why he is a hypersensitive lout. The Hill: Matthews told The Hill in a phone interview that after he left the restaurant, he heard a group of guys "heckling" and "hooting and hollering" at him. He headed back into the restaurant to mix it up with them. "I wanted to confront them," Matthews said, describing his exchange with the men as "towel-snapping" among guys. Matthews said he told the rowdy group, "What's this, a douchebag convention?" How classy....

    Chris Matthews is becoming the mainstream media’s premier race-baiter and hatemonger. The MSNBC host is the Joe Biden of liberal commentators — an obtuse, loudmouthed Democratic hack willing to ruthlessly play the race card. He is a national embarrassment. His brand of demagogic vitriol should be denounced for what it is: ideological fanaticism masquerading as journalism. During the GOP convention in Tampa Bay, Mr. Matthews confronted Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus. On “Morning Joe,” Mr. Matthews denounced Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for playing the “ethnic” and “race” card. Why? Because Mr. Romney had made a joke about President...

    On Wednesday, hosts at MSNBC informed America that the words "golf" and "Chicago" are racist, especially if they are used while speaking of Barack Obama. Newsbusters' Rusty Weiss reported early Thursday morning that while covering the GOP convention, Chris Matthews "came to the conclusion that reminding people of the President's roots in Chicago politics is racist." The Washington Post's Eugene Robinson set the tone of the exchange. "It's all part of this Barack Obama as 'other' sort of blanket campaign that has been waged by the Republican Party for some time now.

    Full Headline: Obama’s Failed Stimulus Funded ‘Green Jobs’ Initiative Ads on MSNBC: Labor Department Unrepentant [...] According to a Washington Times report by Jim McElhatton, the U.S. Department of Labor allegedly paid a public relations company at least half a million dollars of their allotted stimulus money to produce over 100 commercials that publicized a new “green jobs” initiative back in 2009. Coincidentally, the advertisements could only be seen on MSNBC during The Rachel Maddow Show and Countdown with Keith Olbermann, which has since been canceled of course. A House panel led by Reps. John Kline (R-Minn.) and Phil Roe...

    You can agree with everything that Rachel Maddow or Ed Schultz say on MSNBC and still oppose their right to say it. Especially when they and their hyped-up panelists shout that Republican claims are “lies,” or Chris Matthews says that Republicans view welfare recipients as “looters.” MSNBC panelists gave Mitt Romney his due on Thursday but mocked his audience. Mr. Matthews noted that when Mr. Romney called for Americans to give the poor a helping hand, Mr. Matthews said, “He got zero applause,” adding, “I think that’s so telling about tonight. -snip- The smugness is easier to copy than the...

    Chris Mathews obviously has a severe drinking problem, the alcohol has taken it's toll; when all you see is racism and nothing else, the drinking has gone too far. It is time to get Chris some help! It is sad to see his drinking problem on display on national TV, why won't the people around him do the right thing? Please get Chris some help, at this rate his liver may stop functioning and the irrational will only get worse. It's time for an intervention! Or the tingle going up his leg may disappear forever!
