MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell clinging bitterly to Newtown ‘heckling’ story

So, who will be the last “real journalist” to admit that grieving Newtown parent Neil Heslin wasn’t “heckled” or “shouted down” at a public hearing? Slate and Anderson Cooper have admitted that an edited version of events that’s been widely disseminated via social media is misleading. Even Piers Morgan “apologized” in a way, though he immediately repeated the “shouted down” lie during his broadcast.

It looks like MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell is holding out despite all evidence to the contrary. Why not double down and call anyone who spoke up a “gun nut”?

Serious question: does Lawrence O’Donnell really want to be known as the journalist who is less credible than Piers Morgan?

    O’Donnell speaks in only one direction . . . Forward. Unfortunately, he only thinks in one direction . . . reverse.

    • bluewaternavy

      Reverse? Hell, he isn’t capable of thinking!

  • Lord Foggybottom

    This guy could use a good swift kick in the balls.

      Alas, as a progressive, he has none.

        This is correct. Would have to settle for kicking that Maddow fella in the balls instead.

    Memo to Mr. O’Donnell:

    Scream all you want. Fewer and fewer are listening. Let alone paying attention in all those empty airline terminals from whence your pitiful ratings come.

  • dr44

    No doubt Mr. O’Donnell and Politifact are sticking to the “undeniable truth” of the story. No matter what.

  • SanDiegoMerchantServices

    Poor Lawrence has to troll twitter for ratings. How embarrassing for him.

  • Nitsedy

    Ah yes, the last bastion of liberals, looking in a dictionary to find out what the meaning of is is and then arguing is means isn’t except when it means was or might be, but never if it is is might could be was doubleplus maybe.

    It depends on what the definition of “is” is.
