Isn't that what the liberal media do against conservatives? I got an email today from Romney's camp saying that if I donate $5, there would be a space for me on his bus. Well, that sounds tempting. But a ride to where, might I ask?

Romney and his campaign have done some very clever editing of the president where they took something he was saying about a position that McCain held, and made it sound like it was the president's position. So I'm not surprised by that kind of stuff.

Are you claiming that Romney isn't out of touch?

However, that was a candidate for president. Not a news station. This senario has been played out many times by MSNBC. Why anyone still watches that right-wing farce news I have no idea.



Yes there is a difference between a candidate making false accusations. It's the News job to syphon out the BS and present the truth. Altering a speech on a News station to help progress any party ideology is simply wrong. Who ever edited it should be fired, like what MSNBC did the Zimmerman 911 call.

Not at all, I think Obama and Romney are out of touch.



I know that question wasn't ment for me, but I thought I'd put my 2 cents in. So MSNBC is justified in how they portrayed him during that speech?

I agree:

...and do you think that MSNBC, as inexcusable as this is, is pulling the same stunt that FOX has been doing for years?



http://thenewcivilrightsmovement.com...12/06/19/41768



...and last but not least, Romney is out of touch and he makes that painfully evident every time he opens his mouth...so why Andrea Mitchell felt the need to go there is a mystery.

Mitt Romney may very well end up being the greatest president since Ronald Reagan.

Out of touch with whom?



One thing for sure, MSNBC is out of touch with almost everybody as it struggles to get more than 800,000 viewers in a nation of 310 million.



Embarrassingly the prison documentaries MSNBC cycles at the weekend get higher ratings than any of its "star" lineup of self-confessed socialists, lesbians and former union workers!

Hey, he did great things as Governor of Massachusetts...maybe he'll do great things as President of the U.S.

Not if he does what he says he's going to do. If he does, we are going to be hurting for a long time to come. Not to mention that the teetering SCOTUS would become an arm of the far right fringe, as it almost is right now. Romney would be the worst thing that could happen to us.

There's a good chance the next President will need to replace two Supreme Court Justices in the next 4 years.



Another reason to vote for Romney

unfortunately that isnt always true any more. its the networks job to attract viewers and therefore increase the value of advertising on their broadcasts. if the news isnt doing that, well, they just need to 'improve' the news a little. its a free press. if there were laws about what networks are and are not allowed to do there would be considerable outcry about government interference.

Im shocked, shocked to find out MSNBC distorts the facts.



Especially since so many media outlets have promised to clean up their acts. NBC told us theyd quit playing games with video clips. The NY Times vowed to vet Obama this time around. CBS keeps telling us they learned their lesson. The list goes on and on.



So let me see, the media outlets have admitted they were dishonest in the past and have vowed to stop all their lies. How are we supposed to know which lies to believe?

At least Fox News is just blatantly doing those things and never even tries to pretend otherwise. I don't like anyone distorting the actual news. I don't care what their political party affiliation. It is wrong for MSNBC to do that, and I hope they decide to take the high road and simply use the real facts to get the story out, even when they are editorializing. All media should be required to state what is their opinion and what is actually facts and not opinion.

He would definitely be better than Obama, that's for sure!

Yeah, because 30 years of conservative economic policy has worked so well for us thus far!!

Nah, no president is greater than the Father of Our Country: George Washington.

This was good, and shows just how deliberately dishonest FOX is:
