MSNBC - The Doctors of Video

25-year MSM vet The Deacon's Bench, via Glenn, scolds MSNBC for their latest in a string of creative edits.

This time, MSNBC edited Mitt Romney's speech about a PA sandwich shop to make him look like a fool.

Someone with a video phone posted the full clip and shows that the fools are, once again, at MSNBC.

Forget it. I’m done.  You deserve what they’re saying about you.  It’s earned.  You have worked long and hard to merit the suspicion, acrimony, mistrust and revulsion that the media-buying public increasingly heaps upon you.   You have successfully eroded any confidence, dispelled any trust, and driven your audience into the arms of the Internet and the blogosphere, where biases are affirmed and like-minded people can tell each other what they hold to be true, since nobody believes in objective reality any more.  You have done a superlative job of diminishing what was once a great profession and undermining one of the vital underpinnings of democracy, a free press.

Can't stand the Obama cheerleaders at MSNBC. However, the lib blogosphere is all up in arms over what they call a doctored tape that Hannity aired on Fox the other night exposed by the Jon Stewart show regarding Obama's stance on immigration reform by executive order. Have you looked at that tape yet??
