    Very sleazy of them. But also a pattern of their's. Here is what Mitt had to say in repsonse, after it was edited.

    At the beginning of the clip, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell wonders hopefully whether this is Romney’s “supermarket scanner moment.”

    But within hours, Mitchell’s network ended up with egg on its face after other news outlets who picked up the story were forced to issue corrections.

    It turned out Romney wasn’t “amazed” by WaWa’s touch-screen sandwich maker, but by the contrast between private sector innovation and public sector bureaucracy — a point that is perfectly clear in context. Here is the full video, via Sooper Mexican:

    this is why no one gets their news from Networks or most cable stations. Hell the paper is just as bad if not worse.

    MSNBC has a long history of this kind of crap:

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvBQDHqdCck]MSNBC Crops Video to Incite Racial Tension over AR-15 at Obama Rally - YouTube[/ame]

    Of course, we can expect "Fox does it too" in 3...2...1...

    Did Mrs. Greenspan tell a fib? Did she misrepresent a news story to favor her ideology? I think maybe the job of delivering the "news" to the American people is beneath her. She should find some 3rd world despot that need a media consultant to spin the news in his or her favor. Oh wait she has already found that 3rd world despot, his name is Obama.

    Wasn't that unbelievable?! What gall! What dishonor to the very serious profession of journalism, the one we ranked #1 in the Bill of Rights!

    It's only gotten worse since...and they wonder why their ratings suck.

    So then yesterday Mitchell begins her show by saying the day before they couldn't play the full video of Romney's comments due to time constraints. So they played the whole thing that go-round. And that was it. No statement though about her supermarket scanner comment being totally out of line given the entire context of Mitt's comments. Way to go there, pizza face Andrea.
