I have a solution. Why don't all the wealthy liberals who think that the government can do a better job at repairing the economy and that it is appropriate for someone to spend others hard earned dollars, move into a small 3 bedroom twin with 1 bathroom, give up their staff, drive a car that is 12 years old, and donate all their wealth to the federal government except for about $60,000 a year. Then they too can see what it is like to struggle everyday and worry constantly while their children are running up $100,000 in debt to get an education. We could solve our debt crisis and those greedy liberals could feel good about themselves for supporting the federal government. Who's out of touch Ms. Mitchel?
To Marie, who said, "What kills me is if Fox did this to Pres Obama, it'll be splashed all over the evening news, on DemocracyNow, all the websites and FAIR would be up their hineys".
Fox DID just do this to Obama with the clip about the Dream Act. They selectively edited it to make him look like he had just overruled himself and was tearing up the Constitution. They neglected to run the next 30 seconds where he said what he *could* do, selectively enforce the law due to limited resources. His predecessor, George W. Bush, also used an executive order to "rewrite immigration policy", as did two of the previous presidents, Clinton and Reagan.
So, people of the Right, be carecul about getting up in arms about "selective editing". Fox News wrote the book. There are countless examples of them doing this very same thing. Where's the outrage THERE?
must be nice to get paid in the high 6 figures like mitchell does to out and out lie to the american people. can you say "political whore."
As an average middle class citizen, I want to know the news - AS IT HAPPENS! - NOT AS HOW IT IS EDITED TO MAKE IT SEEM DIFFERENT !!!
IF WE CAN'T BELIEVE THE NEWS YOU PRESENT - WHY SHOULD WE EVEN WATCH IT ?????
I find it interesting -- perplexing, that the media would attack Romney on THIS basis -- his stand on an ISSUE, when they deliberately overlook the "real" question -- his Constitutional ELIGIBILITY to be POTUS. I have not yet been able to locate anything in my search engines that TELLS ME THE NATIONALITY, i.e., CITIZENSHIP, of Romney's paraents AT THE TIME OF HIS BIRTH.
When th question of Romney's status as a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN came up, Romney produced a "Birth Certificate" that was issued by the STATE of Michigan which ONLY shows his parents NAMES -- NOT their nationality or citizenship. WHY did Romney NOT SHOW a copy of the WAYNE COUNTY Birth Certificate that has attending doctor's name, the hospital, his vital measurements AND THE CITIZENSHIP OF HIS PARENTS?
akaObams is quoted as saying: "The only people who don't want to disclose the truth are those with something to hide."
WHAT are YOU hiding Mitt? It'r really doesn't matter for us to know, however, and HE knows that he is the designate loser -- as was McCain in '08. The Bilderberg and CFR International banking cartel control WHO gets on the ballots, and who gets elected.
May our Constitutional Republic RIP.
Andrea Mitchell is a pathetic excuse for a journalist. If it wasn't for her hubbie, Alan Greenspan, she'd be doing the news in Yoruba Linda !!
Marxist Socialist Nobama Broadcasting Channel
If you see anyone's lips moving on screen, you're being lied to!
Of course, what can we expect from the "most liberal NBC" networks. No fair and balanced reporting from them, ever. These networks should have their licenses taken away for smearing people with lies.
What makes me laugh about MSNBC is their weekend lineup. Fox and CNN focus on working class - most of which are minority - achievements while MSNBC shows them in prison.
That shows you the ultimate Democratic agenda.
Wow. I can see why MS-Obama-C edited the video: because this man makes sense! I am an Indie and I'm voting for Romney because we need private sector jobs.
After Dylan Ratigan signs off on Friday, I will never watch this channel again. All it is are bias rants for 24 hours a day. They don't even give the pretense of being a "news" channel. They and Current are horrible.
I don't understand why Andrea Mitchell has a news show when her husband was hired by Obama and is employed by him. Oh, there's no agenda.
What kills me is if Fox did this to Pres Obama, it'll be splashed all over the evening news, on DemocracyNow, all the websites and FAIR would be up their hineys.
Where's the outrage? I found this clip from hearing about it on an ask.com mashup and then googling it.
I ask the question, How many people watch MSNBC? I do not! So how many people are influenced by there news cast? We on this blog would not have seen it. I believe, they preach to the chore. I know it is a matter of principle as to how they report news and not report news, but how much longer do they have before they have to pull up stakes and leave the airwaves? My thoughts are that after this election you will see a change in personnel and news casters to slowly bring them back to left instead of far left. If this election goes as I think it is going, will shake up the left to it's roots. The set back is going to be so bad that it will take a long time for them to recover as it has done for Conservatives to get back from Reagan leaving office. I agree a Rino is not the way we should go but it is a start, for the Tea Party is gaining everyday and the old guard is slowly fading because of the efforts of the Tea Party. My belief is that we are at the beginning not the end.
andrea mitchell is not a journalist, she is like juan w. a npr bitch and soro slut. so why should we even listen or watch anything they have to say. nothing but a laying dog s@#$ who has sold themself to soro. soro is in bed with obama to destroy america.
The sad thing is, it will not get reported by the rest of the media so much of the public will not know a thing about it.
This woman really summarizes the whole intellectual output of the liberal mind. The entire Democratic, Liberal, Progressive party seems more like a group of freshman high school girls. I've got nothing against 14 and 15 year old girls, but are the progressives adding estrogen to the food in the MSNBC cafeteria?
I don't know why we have to compete against these immature worm brains in elections when they should just be slapped and sent to their rooms.
The idea that Romney is not familiar with touch screens is in no way credible. There are certainly dozens of them in every room he walks in. This is not the 'George Bush supermarket scanner' moment. The fact that MSNBC is selectively editing videos and trying to sell this story smacks of deep desperation. This story is pretty funny and comforting if you think about it. Thanks for posting scoop!
Of course they cut out the real meaning of his speech - It's antithetical to the statist narrative they're perpetuating. It's a simple choice for statists: 1) Allow Romney to speak about how great competition is (ie. the truth), or 2) Make Romney look out of touch with ordinary Americans (ie. a lie) - Statists will always choose the latter (the lie), no matter what, and they know they'll get away with it, even if individual instances (like this) are exposed.
Wake up and realise you're dealing with absolute ideologues here; they're not a bunch of boy scouts; they're after power, and they mean it.
They cut out the entire meaning of his speech. I thought at first there was going to be maybe a 10 or 20 second piece that he would have stated but it was like 6 minutes!! MSNBC cut out six minutes!! Unreal! They took the intro to the point he was making....skipped all the meat of the issue and then put in the conclusion. Although when I watched the first clip you can't buy that as what he just said. I mean obviously there was editing. If anyone buys that they are completely retarded. Seriously.
andrea you are a total FRAUD!!!!..better said in the words of one of the great radio men.......FAKE, PHONEY, FRAUD......MSNBC is a joke!!!!!
Anyone who still watches MSNBC (all 80 of them) after this, doesn't care about the truth, they just want someone who will tickle their ears.
Mitt Romney's "supermarket scanner moment"? GHWB's "supermarket scanner moment" wasn't even a "supermarket scanner moment" if you care anything about presenting the truth, Trandrea.

Okay, MSNBC chicanery aside, (disclaimer, I have been NO big Romney booster, for sure!) BUT, wow, Romney is very, very good here! He is funny, relatable, relaxed and very likable. Not stiff or awkward at all. Between that and the fact that he is clearly patterning much of his campaign after Sarah Palin's lead is giving me great HOPE!!! (the whole 'small town' theme, and hitting those small towns on a 'bus tour', C'MON, that is straight out of the Palin playbook! and that is a good thing.)
the noose is tightning even more around the libtards necks now that they don't recieve ,enough oxygen in their tiny brains to even cheat/lie, in an effective manner!
Do you want to vote for a godless commie thug, with connections to very corrupt people such as Bill Ayers, Rev White, Farrakahan, and the New Black Panthers.....to name a few and THIS is just for Starters. You Americans need to get off your ass and vet these criminals out and EXPOSE THEM.
Kudos for the great reporting. Someone below said you're just a blogger - nope - pure journalist. This is the kind of investigative reporting that keeps people honest .... or shows us who is not (MSNBC). Regardless if you're Democrat or Republican (I'm Independent), MSNBC - is just as Jon Stewart said about them over the Wisconsin recall election where they were in denial and lamenting - MSNB Sad. They only stay in business because a lot of people are not paying attention.
MSNBC did this back in April to imply Romney was dodging a question about his religion. Expect a whole lot more of this garbage between now and November.
This whole article is selectively edited, lol. The Zimmerman editing was completely unacceptable, but was done by a NBC News director in Miami (he was fired) NOT by MSNBC so you're whole premise is B.S. in connecting the two. That's like blaming FOX News for someting a local Fox affiliate did, not the same entity at all. As far as selective editing goes, pot... kettle? Mitt's very first election ad misrepresented Obama's quote about McCain as his own and didn't even try to deny it. His excuse? The whole goose/ sauce crap he was trying to throw out there. Mitt Romney is severely out of touch, no need to edit anything to see that. And if you really want to see selective editing, let's be honest, your linked "Fox Nation" is far and away the king of BS edits, but hey... enjoy your life in the bubble. :)
You are talking apples and oranges here. What a politician did with an ad doesn't even come close to intentional distortion by the media. Why are you trying to excuse this horrid behavior? It is impossible to defend MSNBC about this and turn it on Romney and McCain. Wake up!
Very patiently waiting for the day your bubble bursts this November.
That will be the day this nation can begin her journey back from the brink of destruction. :)
Here's another MSLSD editing with Sissy Matthews.
MSNBC Airs Highly-Edited 2002 Video of Bush Saying 'I'm Not That Concerned About Bin Laden'
What is the difference between prostitutes and their pimp and MSNBC talk show hosts and their producers?.......absolutely nothing.
Way to go Sooper! I thought WaWa was Bawbwa's last name...learned lots of things today... who knew there was a rolling ....well....V bike. I didn't look close enough to determine if it is medically acceptable and to scale... but just wow. Wonder if the company who made that supplied the National Proctologist Convention with a big rolling Butt Bike? Ushered in to the music and fanfare of The Rear Admirals. Warning: this could be disturbing...
Not Surprised !!
I can't believe how back in the day - when cable was not around
The LSM steered us in the direction they wanted
Breitbart Lives through Citizen reporters !!!!!
I'm going to love seeing the MSNBC headline on November 7th, after a landslide Romney victory:
Mitchell: "Obama wins, garners 95% of the black vote"
Co-host: "Psst, Andrea. That's all he got. Nobody else voted for him"
Mitchell: "But, but...I have the spliced video right here. Can't we use it? What do we do now?"
