MSNBC edits a Mitt Romney speech to make him appear out of touch with the people
You may remember when MSNBC purposely edited George Zimmerman’s 911 call to make it appear as if his shooting of Trayvon Martin was racially motivated to push their political agenda, and you may remember that some nameless and faceless person at NBC was supposedly fired for this mistake. Well, apparently either MSNBC didn’t learn from this mistake or they think that people have forgotten about it, but one thing is certain, MSNBC will do whatever they feel is needed in order to get Barack Obama reelected and they have been caught once engaging in the art of selective editing.
This story comes from both SooperMexican and The Right Scoop and it involves a speech given by Mitt Romney which MSNBC edited to make him appear to be out of touch with ordinary Americans. Here is the clip as run by MSNBC:
Andrea Mitchell and her guest are laughing at Mitt Romney because he was amazed he could walk into a store, push a few buttons, and receive his order as he left the store. This shows that Mitt Romney doesn’t frequent too many convenience stores and because of this he is out of touch with modern technology and the American people according to MSNBC.
But there is one problem with this conclusion as is evidenced when you watch the unedited version of the speech:
Mitt Romney was clearly comparing the public sector to the private sector and using this as an example to show the difference between the inefficiencies in the federal government compared to the advances made in the private sector due to competition.
MSNBC had to have access to the entire speech when the network decided what to include and what to exclude in its broadcast, but unlike the Zimmerman 911 call where a few seconds were edited out, this should be much harder to explain away as a simple editing mistake and it is quite obvious that this was intentional.
Is it any wonder why the mainstream media is hemorrhaging viewers?
