NBC News Caught in Yet Another Deceptive Edit

NBC News Caught in Yet Another Deceptive Edit

What is it about the folks at NBC News who seem to think that they can routinely selectively and deceptively edit what people say in order to misconstrue their words and meaning? A few weeks ago, a web-only Rock Center video was published at NBCNews.com that deceptively edited an Hasidic Rabbi to give the appearance that he was trying to cover up or hide sexual abuse within his community (video follows

Andrew Sullivan ‘Very Concerned’ Gays ‘May Become Intolerant of People Who Believe Homosexuality is Still Sinful’

Andrew Sullivan ‘Very Concerned’ Gays ‘May Become Intolerant of People Who Believe Homosexuality is Still Sinful’

Andrew Sullivan had a very interesting discussion with CNN's Fareed Zakaria Sunday about last week's Supreme Court decisions involving same-sex marriage. In light of the media's almost universal support for the rulings and the way opponents have been routinely eviscerated, the most compelling thing Sullivan said was, “I'm very concerned, actually, that we may become intolerant of people who believe homosexuality is still sinful” (video follows with transcript and commentary): read

Overnight Star Wendy Davis Condemns Politicians Using Abortion Issue ‘To Boost Their Own Political Aspirations’

Latest dispatch from the Department of Pot-Meet-Kettle. On today's Face the Nation , Texas state senator Wendy Davis, who overnight went from being a national unknown to a rising star who today appeared on count-em three Sunday talk shows, has accused politicians of using the abortion issue “to boost their own political aspirations.” Davis also accused Texas Governor Rick Perry and Lt. Governor David Dewhurst of

U.S. Park Police Lost Thousands of Guns; Will the Media Report?

U.S. Park Police Lost Thousands of Guns; Will the Media Report?

Ever since the Newtown mass shooting, the liberal media have pushed for a fresh round of federal gun control, insisting that such measures are needed to keep guns from falling into the wrong hands, even though the efficacy of such measures is doubtful. But what about guns potentially falling into the wrong hands thanks to the malfeasance or incompetence of government officials? Shouldn't the media highlight those instances and call the government to account for them? Well, …

Jimmy Carter’s Craven Critiques, Part 2: Lambasting America’s War Record and the Death Penalty

Jimmy Carter’s Craven Critiques, Part 2: Lambasting America’s War Record and the Death Penalty

In Part 1 (at NewsBusters ; at BizzyBlog ), I covered how the Bill Barrow at the Associated Press covered the religion-based aspects of former President Jimmy Carter's speech at Carter's Mobilizing Faith for Women conference yesterday in Atlanta. Carter characterized certain religions' failure to allow women to be priests as examples of “oppression,” and seemed to consider them as worthy of mention as far more serious and oppressive problems, among them female mutilation, child…

Andrew Sullivan: ‘Alec Baldwin’s a Pro-Gay Liberal, So He May Get a Pass’ For Gay Slurs – ‘He Shouldn’t’

Andrew Sullivan: ‘Alec Baldwin’s a Pro-Gay Liberal, So He May Get a Pass’ For Gay Slurs – ‘He Shouldn’t’

As NewsBusters previously reported, CNN's Anderson Cooper commented about Alec Baldwin's Thursday Twitter meltdown – which included a homophobic attack on a British reporter – asking why the actor gets a pass when he uses gay slurs. Andrew Sullivan joined this discussion Friday writing , “He’s a pro-gay liberal, so he may get a pass for this. He shouldn&rsquo

AP’s Wiseman Indirectly Reveals That Top Half of Households Is Over $4 Trillion Richer, While Bottom Half Is 40%-60% Poorer

AP’s Wiseman Indirectly Reveals That Top Half of Households Is Over $4 Trillion Richer, While Bottom Half Is 40%-60% Poorer

On Sunday, in a report which I contend would surely have been published on a weekday — and more importantly, published with far greater clarity — if a Republican or conservative were in the White House, the Associated Press's Paul Wiseman essentially explored the following question: “Why aren't people spending more if they're so much richer?” The answer he found, which should surprise no one in touch with reality, is that quite a…

Imagine That: ‘U.S. Warns on Egypt Travel, Moves to Reduce Presence’; Protest Sign: ‘Obama Supports Terrorism’

Imagine That: ‘U.S. Warns on Egypt Travel, Moves to Reduce Presence’; Protest Sign: ‘Obama Supports Terrorism’

(UPDATE: “Obama Supports Terrorism” sign obtained at Twitchy.com ) This “Arab Spring” update comes from the Associated Press : “The Obama administration on Friday warned Americans against all but essential travel to Egypt and moved to reduce the official U.S. presence in the country amid fears of widespread unrest.” No one could possibly have predicted this type of crisis would be a likely outcome of Hosni Mubarak's overthrow — ahem, except former U.S. ambassador John Bolton and other people …

Letterman: ‘Rush Limbaugh’s Head Exploded’ Over DOMA Decision

Letterman: ‘Rush Limbaugh’s Head Exploded’ Over DOMA Decision

Although CBS Late Show host David Letterman admitted that he had no idea what the Supreme Court’s ruling regarding the Defense of Marriage Act meant, he still felt the need Wednesday to use the decision to bash conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh. “Earlier today, Rush Limbaugh's head exploded. It's crazy!” (video follows with transcript and commentary): read more

Chris Matthews Compares Gavin Newsom to Executed Civil War-Era Abolitionist, America Is Now ‘Half Slave’

Chris Matthews Compares Gavin Newsom to Executed Civil War-Era Abolitionist, America Is Now ‘Half Slave’

Though Chris Matthews was happy with Wednesday's Supreme Court rulings in support of gay marriage, the liberal host still used hyperbolic rhetoric to describe the state of the country and the Democratic Lieutenant Governor of California. Talking to Gavin Newsom, Matthews praised the politician, comparing him to an executed Civil War abolitionist: ” In effect, you were sort of like John Brown or something back in the Civil War days- pre- Civil War days .” [See video below.
