Lapdog collusion: MSNBC’s Scarborough runs deceptively edited Romney/Ryan chant video; Tweets confirm; Update: Scarborough whines

Listen to the whole thing? That would not suit. How could the lapdogs then deceptively edit video in order to attempt to shame Mitt Romney and boost up The One? First it was Andrea Mitchell over at MSNBC. Remember, she ran a deceptively edited video trying to paint Mitt Romney as confused by Wawa. That “real journalist” was exposed by “just a blogger.”

And it has happened again.

What video? Oh, just one that Joe Scarborough ran on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and other media outlets breathlessly ran with it.

Turns out, he should be double facepalming himself.

That’s right. MSNBC ran a clip that tried to paint a false narrative. They claimed that a crowd at a rally was chanting the name Ryan. And that Mitt Romney jumped in and tried to get them to chant Romney instead. What really happened? The Blaze uncovered the deception.

Indeed, the MSNBC closed captions claims the was crowd chanting “Ryan!“ when attendees say they were actually chanting ”Romney!” Obviously, this changes a lot about the situation. Instead of awkwardly inserting his name into what sounds like a failed chant, Gov. Romney was actually including his running mate in a crowd chant of his own name.

“Mitt said, ‘Let’s try this, Romney/Ryan, Romney/Ryan, I like that better!‘ Jewett’s email continues. “I thought to myself ‘what a humble guy to include Ryan in our chant.’”

And, as we discovered, live tweets from a couple of journalists covering the rally prove it as well.

Journalists for Obama aren’t just shamelessly cheerleading now. They are trying to fix the game. Twitter users are disgusted, and rightfully so.

Some are still falling for the deception. Perez Hilton just posted and tweeted about it this afternoon, even after the video was proven to be false.

At the end, he writes:

Based on the priceless reaction from Joe Scarborough, the Republican host of Morning Joe, the moment was a far cry from “great.”

You know what else is a far cry from great? Lying liar who lies, Joe Scarborough.

These lapdogs need exposed every time.

Enough. The Fourth Estate is completely insolvent. Time to pack it in, lapdogs.

Update: Aww, call the waahmbulance!

Really? That’s all you can come up with? You double face palmed. Why would you do that if that is what you referring to originally? What on earth would be face palm-y about that? Why would you say “sweet Jesus” for that? You can’t even lie well, dude.

He continues stomping his little feet.

Oh noes! He’s taking note! We are quaking in our super cute shoes. Of course, it’s quaking from giggle-snorts, but still.

Why? Will you be “editing” some more?

Update:

According to “Morning Joe” spokeswoman Lauren Skowronski, you guys just don’t get the program’s playful brand of “humor.” Really:

This story is an attempt to generate a false controversy. The tape clip was untouched and was played as it was recorded. The panel was responding to Romney’s playful response and having fun with it. Joe and the gang apologize for making people laugh in the morning
