Yep, nothing to see here, move on to the Trayvon 911 audio we spliced up so it sounds like Zimmerman was a racist pig...

Media reporting at it's Liberal Finest. (Just like they learn in school from their Socialist Professors, and from their hero's at the NewYork Times...)

The sad result are the people that heard the altered video and not the retraction. Do you know how to tell if an NBC anouncer is lying? Their lips are moving...

Bad MSNBC, bad.

Well it's a good thing Fox would never run anything like that.

And yes Fox (ahem, see the OP) is very hypocritical because they're much worse about that sort of thing.

You loved when Andrea Mitchell said Iowa was to white in the voter primaries this year, but why would racist hypocrite like you care?

It's how they maintain ignorance. It's the same reason why almost 70% of those asked believe it was SP who said "I can see Russia from my house." when in fact it was Tina Fey.

"Mitt Romney had more to say about that...but we didn't get a chance to air that."

No? But she did get the chance to interject her own commentary (re: this is Romney's "supermarket moment"), didn't she?

Either she had never seen the footage in its entirety (irresponsible and highly doubtful), or (and this is much more likely) the footage was intentionally and deceptively edited in an attempt to smear Romney in the same way they did George H.W.

I wish I could say that this was a retraction. Or that it was an apology to Mitt Romney and the unfortunate viewers of MSNBC. It was neither.

You are right, the excuse is highly implausible and only makes it worse.

MSNBC should have just issued a correction.

This was just a few days ago. Fox routinely does the exact same thing they criticized MSNBC for.

Dang, free......I'm embarrassed for you, man. Not only did you stoop to using some crap from the left wing extremist, who's only job is to paint the right in a bad light, but the example of Fox, that they used was a very poor one. Yes, it showed that the piece had been edited, but the meaning was not changed by that editing.

It's sad that you have become that desperate.

(Shaking head)...Friggin' Medi Matters. LOL

LOL....So, you're going to fall back on the "two wrongs makes a right" argument?

Nice. That's about the same as just throwing in the towel and admitting that you have nothing.

Nope. Two wrongs make two wrongs.

And in Fox's case, this is only one of many wrongs. Media Matters has documented scores if not hundreds of examples.
