No correction for deceptive editing of the video. No apology for wrongly stating that Neil Heslin was heckled. No retraction.

The updated article still falsely asserts that Heslin was heckled. Here is the headline: “Emotional father of Sandy Hook victim heckled at gun hearing.”

Here is the caption in the updated video: “Mocked and Loaded: Sandy Hook Victim’s father heckled by gun rights’ advocates.”

Here’s the paragraph that describes the so-called “hecklers”:

Heslin asked why anyone needs assault weapons and high capacity magazines. Gun rights activists replied, “Our rights will not be infringed!” and “Second Amendment!” Local news sources reported that there were nearly a dozen hecklers, who were quickly silenced.

And here’s the editor’s note at the bottom of the article:

Editor’s note: This story has been amended from the original version to clarify the context of the remarks; the original video has been replaced with a fuller version.

Utterly shameless.

Update, 1/30/13:

A source tells the Washington Post that MSNBC is “reviewing” the video. The network has yet to issue a correction or an apology.

    MSNBC will do anything to promote their socialist agenda.

  • Pam E.

    why do we allow the media to put out lies? even after they are proven to be lies the American people don’t stand up and say ENOUGH!! We deserve better and we deserve the truth. I just don’t know how to get that message out there to people.

    • dontreadonme

      Pam , you’ll never get that meassage across to the Obama voter. As you’ve seen that was the majority of those who voted and that is the MSM target. We , the American’s who still believe in our constitution , should use all forms of media to keep informed of whats really going on in our country. So, pass it on.

    • Dan Haney

      Can you say FOX NEWS.. They are the worse.. FOX claims to be Fair and Balanced. So both side do it, but Fox is way Over the top.

      • Joe W.

        Name a single lie that FOX News has told. I’ll wait….

      • Rudemeister

        This article was about the journalistic malpractice perpetrated by an MSNBC article. Then an excuse is proposed because FOX does it too. First of all, I do not believe FOX does do that. But even if it did, this excuse is illegitimate. When I was a kid my parents told me that 2 wrongs don’t make a right. I don’t think that concept has changed.

        sorry, but Leaning Forward means just that – MSNBC leaves Fox in the dust (except in ratings)
        LMAO

  • Michelle

    The image on their Twitter page includes the words, “Lean Foward” and I’ve got a pretty good idea why they want us to do that…

    • James Edwards

      What they really mean is “Bend Over”.

      • Michelle

        Well, I would have asked what you all thought they meant by “Lean Forward” but I wasn’t in the mood to be…heckled.

        • http://www.facebook.com/todd.fenlason1 Todd Fenlason

          Forward = Obama’s campaign slogan, Lean = crappy economic times ahead due to Keynesian policies of BHO. Put them together & you get BOHICA

          • jeff spence

            Obama’s. idea is to move Forward. I like that idea. But then why do “HIS” people live in the “PAST”???

      • Michelle

    Nothing is too extreme in the effort to move forward your agenda. If lying and then lying about lying is what it takes then that’s just what it means to justify the means to an end.

    Liberals, They will lie till they die and all we can hope is that they die before we do.

    But don’t dismay, there’s plenty to be hopeful about, there’s cirrhosis of liver, colon cancer, syphilis, hepatitis c, and of course Aids and the super bugs it spawns.

    Wow, I watched the video, The man wasn’t heckled, he asked a question and invited and waited for an answer, which he got. As soon as the chairman indicated that there could be no comments while the man was speaking, everyone shut up. If these are hecklers, they are the most respectful ones I have ever seen.

They are the biggest hypocrites on the face of this earth!!

    To them the end justifies the means, no matter how shameless they have to be. The thing is, no one takes them any more serious than Big Time Wrestling, no offense wrestling fans.

    Not being snide. I honestly don’t know. Has MSNBC ever been anything other than last in ratings of the cable news networks?

  • Dave Barton

    Pretty much like this

  • Steve_J

    He didn’t asK the legislators why the Bushmaster was legal. He actually asked the people in tne audience why they needed an AR15 and high capacity magazines and a few people answered.

    I do feel badly about what has happened to all these people & the tragedy & evil that has entered their lives. Yet, once again, the government is playing on the emmotions of the heartbroken, injured & death of others to get their agenda passed. The fact still remains that the guns were not the perpetrators of the crimes. The fact still remains that PEOPLE commited these horendous crimes. Whether it was a hand gun, a rifle, or a pee shooter doesn’t matter. Evil people with evil minds are the problem. These people are directing their frustrations & energy in the wrong direction. Enforcing the current laws is the answer. If you take away the so called “evil guns” from the good, law abiding citizens, only the evil people will have fire arms. Then the good, law abiding citizens will not have any way to protect themselves from this evil. The MSM should be fined each & every time they modify a video that detracts from the intent of the orator. For them to mislead the American public should be a crime.

    They’ll get around to changing it.
    On Friday.
    At 5PM.
    During the “news dump” period when nobody is watching.
    Lean Forward . . . and retch.

    Heslin “asked” why anyone needs assault weapons and high capacity magazines.

    They will not change until a massive product boycott occurs to shock their stockholders. MSNBC is a propaganda organ of Marxism and you shouldn’t be supporting their advertisers at all.

    Don’t worry, they’ll broadcast a correction at midnight, when most people are asleep.
