SOME NEVER LEARN: MSNBC CAUGHT SELECTIVELY EDITING ROMNEY VIDEO TO MAKE HIM SEEM ‘OUT OF TOUCH’

After NBC was caught selectively editing the George Zimmerman police tapes to make it seem like he was volunteering racial information, MSNBC has been caught editing a clip of Mitt Romney to make him seem wildly “out of touch,” when he was really just explaining the difference between the private and public sectors.

In the MSNBC clip, Romney is shown discussing Wawa’s convenience stores like he has never been to one before (presumably because he is “too good” for such an establishment).

Introduced by Andrea Mitchell saying: “I get the feeling–take a look at this– that Mitt Romney has not been to too many Wawa’s along the roadside in Pennsylvania,” Romney says: “I was at Wawa’s, I wanted to order a sandwich. You press the little touch tone keypad, alright, you just touch that, and you know, the sandwich comes at you, touch this, touch this, touch this, go pay the cashier, there’s your sandwich. It’s amazing.” Watch Andrea Mitchell’s version here:


Momentarily speechless, Mitchell repeats, “It’s amazing,” as her guest breaks into sharp laughter.

Too bad the clip was taken wildly out of context.

In reality, Romney was illustrating the difference between private and public sector efficiency. After telling a story where his friend had to fill out a 33-page form twice to complete a change of address with the government, Romney holds up touch-tone sandwich-ordering as an example of private sector efficiency– not as a marvel of how the “common” man lives.

Watch the real clip, here:

    The American media seems to hate honest, hard working citizens. Perhaps it is because many people in the media pull down large incomes that they don't earn or deserve.

    How anyone can take anything NBC says seriously is beyond me. Time and again they are caught blatantly distorting the truth for their own purposes. Only people who actually want to be deceived, those who really don't want to know the truth, can watch such an obviously deceitful network. They don't seem to realize they only discredit themselves and their viewers.

    What's truly amazing is that people still give credibility to the Lamestream Media. Fortunately, we have the Internet so we CAN have real competition in our news choices at least.

    Andrea Mitchell, aka Mrs. Alan Greenspan, is a member of the criminal press, lead by MSNBC. The liberal media is so desperate to sell their brand of big government that they will lie, cheat and edit video tape in order for it to fit their radical agenda.

    When are the people going to realize the press is lying to us and manipulating reality to fit their definition. The MSM has become nothing more than a mouth piece for the Obama administration, and pure propaganda.
