Media malpractice: Andrea Mitchell sweeps falsely edited Romney Wawa video under rug

As Twitchy reported last night, the media’s breathless Wawa-gate story was completely invented. MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell had aired a deceptively edited video in order to create the utterly false narrative. SooperMexican, “just a blogger,” caught her in the act.

Ms. Mitchell was shamed into acknowledging it, barely, today. But did she apologize or denounce deceptive editing? Nope. She gave passing reference to it and then aired some footage that was missing from her original deceptive report.

And she only did that much because she was caught.

Real journalists?

Ha. Real sycophants and shameless liars is more like it.

Twitchy will monitor the rest of her program and will update accordingly. In the meantime, here is video (courtesy of The Right Scoop) of her non-accountability and continued shameful lies.


Update: “Andrea Mitchell” is trending as Twitter users attempt to teach Ms. Mitchell a little something about integrity and truth.

Oh, dear! David Shuster gets a shred of integrity?

Dude, Andrea. When you’ve lost David Shuster …

    We must start calling MSNBC – Micro Soft NBC.

    • QuadGMoto

      Believe it or not, that’s exactly where the MS came from. MSNBC was a joint project between NBC and Microsoft.

      • BwBarrnone

        You are correct sir, Oh how we take things/words for granted. I think that Micro Soft would not want their name attached to such pathetic unprofessional journalism.

    Our so-called media is a disgrace.

    This woman is looking as old, tired and fake as her lame excuses.

    Its official: the worst “reporter” in the mainstream media is the completely despicable fake news fabricator Andrea Mitchell.
    Previous winners included Dan Rather and Keith Olbermann, now banished to well deserved obscurity.

  • Rick Stones

    Gee, remember the good old days when #RealMedia hacks got fired when they fabricated, and then reported, lies to attack a political candidate that didn’t support their looney, cartoon-world ideology (do you feel me Dan Rather?). Now, not so much.

    Andrea who? I believe Andrea may have been invented too! The video tells all.
