Media hype edited Romney tape, won’t air ‘not authenticated’ Obama tape


Andrea Mitchell is totally looking to get the position of head cheerleader on the Obama squad!

For all the press' anti-Romney chest-thumping over the past two days, that redistribution audio has Team Obama rattled.

Indeed it does. And you know how we know it’s true? The palace guards known as the lapdog media are covering for Obama. Covering like the wind!

so true! @robertcobrien @JoeNBC Whatever happens don't report on polls showing @MittRomney up or mention #Obama redistribution video.

As Twitchy reported, the second half of the Obama/MSM 2012 ticket have been relentlessly hyping The Secret Romney Tape ™.

They started swooning and falling into fits of histrionics even before a full tape was released. Double standards, much?

And the shameful double standards continue. Andrea Mitchell, a fan of false and misleading editing, now has the audacity to say that they won’t run the Obama redistribution remarks because the tape is ‘unauthenticated.’ No, for real. She said that.

Oh for crap's sake. RT @SooperMexican BWAHAH! MT @mattklewis: Mitchell won't air the Obama redistribution vid b/c NBC hasn't authenticated.

*New Video* Andrea Mitchell: MSNBC won’t air ‘alleged’ Obama redistribution tape

— Charlie Spiering (@charliespiering) September 19, 2012

Unbelievable. Yet, they had no problem airing the Romney tape. Even prior to a full tape being released. Worse, the subsequently released full Romney tape ended up being edited.

@CuffyMeh you're taking taking out of context out of context.

RT this if you enjoy watching @DavidCornDC and friends as they learn how much fun it is to be accused of "selective editing."

Plenty of conservative trolls screaming about 1-2 minutes not recorded on Romney tapes. See the explanation here:

— David Corn (@DavidCornDC) September 19, 2012

The Obama campaign authenticated it!

More from Mediaite:

UPDATE: The Washington Post reports, “The Obama campaign confirmed that is Obama’s voice on the recording and a spokesman moved to rebut Romney’s criticism of it.”

Okay, to be fair, we suppose the Washington Post isn’t really a credible source. Still, lying liar Carney tries to dodge the redistribution tape.

Carney portrays Romney campaign as having had a bad day or bad week to explain Romney citing 14 yr old video of Obama on "redistribution."

And lapdogs take their commands from him. Roll over, lapdogs, roll over!

GMA ran the Obama recording this morning but spun "redistribution" as "he wants to make the government more efficient".

Some media outlets resort to sneer quotes, even!

The @MittRomney counter 2 the #47% flap is thumping @BarackObama "redistribution" comment: #cnnelections

Is this directed at Drudge stuff on Obama? Romney at fundraiser: "We don't believe in redistribution." h/t pool

— Jim Acosta (@JimAcostaCNN) September 18, 2012

Oh, just icky, old Drudge stuff! Nothing to see here, move along.

Romney at $ event on Obama's "redistribution" audio: "Some agree that the responsibility of govt is to take from some and give to others."

— Jim Acosta (@JimAcostaCNN) September 18, 2012

More sneer quotes. Shameless and shameful, alleged journalists. This Twitter user sums it up.

"We won't show the Redistribution video, but check out this doctored video of Romney amazed by a sandwich robot!" – @mitchellreports
