MSNBC and Andrea Mitchell distorts Romney's Wawa speech

Discussion in 'Political Issues' started by sbhaven, Jun 19, 2012.

  1. Andrea Mitchell starts off by referencing the previously discredited "supermarket scanner" meme about President George H.W. Bush. Then runs an MSNBC edited video which seems to suggest that Mitt Romney was unfamiliar with touch-screens used in convenience stores. Romney using the ordering system at Wawa's as an example, was contrasting the private sector to the government sector. The MSNBC edited video removes that portion of his comments.

    MSNBC was the network that portrayed an anti-Obamacare rally as "racist" and "violent," and showed footage of a man with a slung rifle to prove their "point" -- carefully cropping out the man's head and hands, because he was African-American!

    That's all that needs to be said about this joke of a "news" outlet. Honestly, Goebbels would have been embarrassed by the relative lack of subtlety of this clown gathering.

    msnbc is a complete joke, state run propaganda machine
     
  4. MSNBC being a joke or not it, this is another illustrative example of how far a major news outlet will go between now and November to distort and trash the Republican candidate.
     
  5. .....while ignoring the High Crimes and Misdemeanors of the Incumbent ******.

    That's what newspapers do now. They don't report the news, they make up their own news and lie a lot about people and incidents that don't fit their scheme of things.
     
  10. MSNBC and Mitchell's response...
    MSNBC spokesperson emailed [Politico] the following at 4:30 on Tuesday afternoon:
    “MSNBC did not edit anything out of order or out of sequence and at no time did we intend to deceive our viewers.” :upeyes:

    MSNBC and Andrea Mitchell cause me to look back fondly at the integrity of Baghdad Bob.

    Liberals don't have that kind of conviction although they certainly expect others to carry their moral and political deficit for them. Much like monetary policy.
