Obama: “If I had a son he’d look like Steve Capus”

Oops, that was a mistake.

Easter Surprise or Good Friday Dump:

NBC News president, Steve Capus, says it was a mistake – the altering and splicing of the 911 tape that left out pertinent words (just a few words so it took quite a small little snip) to make it appear Zimmerman made a spontaneous statement when he was only answering a question of the 911 operator.

No, sorry, that was no “mistake.”  A mistake might be termed as saying  words you don’t mean to say, but altering a tape? Nope, that is intentional.  And I heard, also, that this same misrepresentation was repeated about 5 times.  (Which I believe mainly because that’s their MO when the corrupt media wants to drive something into the minds of the people.  Repeat.  Repeat.  Repeat.)

This is nothing unusual, they just got caught.  And bear in mind this is not talk radio or some comedy show, but what is supposed to be news you can trust.  Far, far from it.

It is reported by NBC/MSNBC that the producer that did this was fired.  And we are supposed to believe them?  Sure.  Right.  We don’t even know who it was.

But what more can they do but fired him?  Not much, I guess.

But I wonder if they made him return the bonus as well.

As exposed by Fox News and media watchdog site NewsBusters, the “Today” segment took this approach to a key part of the dispatcher call:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

Here’s how the actual conversation went down:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.

Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?

Zimmerman: He looks black.

MSNBC Says The Viewers Just Don’t Mind the Bias (Revised)

August 30, 2008

MSNBC is in a meltdown.  Just out: TMZ poll.  Don’t miss this chance to vote for your LEAST FAVORITE MSNBC pundit.  Least favorite — that’s putting it mildly.  They have it worded something like the most whiny and self-absorbed.  Keith Olbermann is leading the way with Chris Matthew coming in a close second.

LOS ANGELES – A mildly exasperated NBC News team Monday dismissed complaints about overcovering Barack Obama‘s Middle East trip this week as a lot of “hot air” – and also declared that MSNBC viewers don’t mind a bit if opinionated analysts like Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann anchor straight news coverage.

Neither NBC News President Steve Capus nor MSNBC commentator/anchor Keith Olbermann fully rose to the bait dangled earlier in the Television Critics Association convention by Chris Wallace of Fox News, who suggested among other things that MSNBC undercuts its own credibility by having opinion commentators anchor election night coverage.

“I don’t need to dignify” those comments with a response, said Capus. “Our audience gets it. They understand that on one night they may be playing a different role than on other nights.”

Yes, Mr. Capus, we get it all right.  We get that your coverage is just a hair short of being a campaign ad for Barack Obama.  You are not fooling anyone with your biased coverage.  But then again maybe you are.  it is not clear as to who the opinion commentators are and when they are expressing opinion or when they are acting as “serious” newscasters.  At the beginning of every single program, there should be a statement declaring to the viewers that the following presentation is by an anchor who is expressing his or her opinion, and, as a matter of fact, the entire program is close to nothing but opinion.

It is almost a joke to watch as the networks crown the presumptive nominee of the democratic party as king of America before our eyes.  I can’t wait until we all get a chance to vote.  Thank God we do get a chance to vote and I believe with all my heart that the “Chosen One” will not be elected president.
