Not exactly a red-letter day for Ronan Farrow and MSNBC:

Tweeters were understandably disturbed as that screen grab from today’s edition of “Ronan Farrow Daily” made the rounds:

It is real. Well, sort of. You see, “WTC jumpers” refers to the BASE jumpers arrested yesterday for a parachuting stunt at 1 WTC last fall:

Let’s just say MSNBC’s graphics department could’ve made that a little clearer:

That’s good advice. And Lord knows MSNBC needs all the good advice it can get.

    Seriously: Dafuq?

  • pinupartist

    The fact that it didn’t occur to employees of msdnc that “WTC jumpers” might be an emotionally-charged phrase shows you just how far gone leftists are. They have a 9/10 world-view because they really think their training-wheel messiah has “reset” everything. Oblivious to reality, they are.

    Also, I think Frank Sinatra Jr here needs a drunk co-host ala Dean Martin. Too bad Ted Kennedy’s dead, huh?

  • CO2 Producer

    Context aside, what the hell’s heroic about base jumping off a building? Did they save someone who was falling? Is Spider-Man a real person?

    • Michael Anderson (WB)

      Hmm, must be some form of “sticking it to the man”.

  • DjWeideman

    On the positive side, it’s not like anyone was watching MSNBC.

  • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

    Looks like libs are going to be demanding another Cronkite Award for him.

  • LegalizeShemp

    Understandable, in order to be a hero of the left, you have to be a zero.

  • TJ

    The collection of fists behind him is just as disturbing but par for the course on Pravda MSNBC

  • bicentennialguy

    Will someone send this little twerp a case of Chap-Stik? His lips always look so unbelievably dry, it makes mine hurt.

  • Perry

    I wonder if Woody ever ACTUALLY believed that was his son and not Frank Sinatra’s?

    • MarcusFenix

      Well, liberals have an uncanny knack for sticking to whatever narrative feels good and doesn’t offend their delicate sensibilities (and whatever other lies happen to be ok with them), so….I’d have to bank that he likely did and always will.

    • DamnCat

      You’d think the fact that the kid has a different last name would be a clue.

  • yourmamatoo

    Typical low info Einstein’s running the asylum, known what MSDNC is famous for.
    No wonder their ratings are beyond dire.

  • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

    Ronan Farrow, award-winning journalist!

    (Said in the fashion of “Pumaman!”, for all you MSTies out there.)

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      I just watched that episode the other day, too.

      Memo to Ronan: “Maybe now would be a good time to jump around like an idiot!”

    • V the K

      This always happens. People throw me out of the window, tell me I’m Puma Man, then leave.

  • Adam Wood

    Of course, these are the same idiots who said that the guy who jumped off a weather balloon had exceed the speed of LIGHT during his descent.

      CNN’s trying dang hard… but they just can’t quite top ’em

  • TomJB

    Frank is face palming in his grave

    • http://www.nleomf.org/officers/ FlatFoot

      The best parts of lil baštard Ronan Farrow dribbled down the backseat of Frank’s cadillac.

  • lesterwink23

    Some non-paid intern is so getting fired for this…

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      And not “anonymous firings” like when MSNBC edited the Zimmerman 911 call, but a real firing.

      • Spiny Norman

        That was actually the “work” of a local NBC affiliate and the big boyz at the network in NY thought it too good not to broadcast nationwide. MSDNC was late in the game on that one.

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    Y’know, there’s plenty of room on the second line. Adding “base” should’ve been no trouble for them, but hey, four extra letters is probably against union rules or something.

  • http://lnsmitheeblog.blogspot.com LN_Smithee

    Now that any confusion about Farrow’s intent is cleared up, the answer to the question is not only #zeroes, it is #lessthanzeroes. I’d support one day in jail and a $1 fine per foot of the jump’s altitude. That would make the douches think twice beforehand.

    • Zach Smith

      I’m not sure normal deterrents work against people who get their jollies by jumping off tall buildings. The risk/reward portions of their brains are defective.

  • WhoMeToo

    World Trade Center (WTC) & ‘One’ World Trade Center are NOT the same thing.

  • http://www.nleomf.org/officers/ FlatFoot

    Reminds me of the time when longtime fugitive mobster James “Whitey” Bulger was finally captured and subsequently convicted of numerous crimes, and Touré Neblett siezed the moment like only MSNBC proglodytes/racists can…

    • Perry

      LOL!

    • LegalizeShemp

      Is that a Bulger in your pants, or are you just happy to see me?

  • YesterdayzNewz

    Lean Forward…grab your ankles.

    The difference between the Left and the Right can be summed up this way:

    The Right looks at that strap and says, as they scratch their heads, “Are you freakin’ not paying attention, or what?”

    The Left looks at a strap like that, and says, as they clutch their pearls, “Needlessly offensive– off with their heads!”

    Phrasing!!

    BOOM!

  • H50 ✓RAT

    Yea, cause the mental picture of people jumping from the tower to their death during 9-11 is not immediately brought to mind with the phrase WTC jumpers.

    • DavyCrockettIII

      Now, remember, these kids were like eleven years old when the planes hit the towers. And Rosie says George Bush did it anyway.

      • H50 ✓RAT

        I cant even come up with a pithy remark to address that kind of weapons grade stupid.

  • randallred

    I’d rather look at the graphic than Ronan Farrow.

  • randallred

    Why are you blaming the graphics team? They are not responsible for the copy. Do understand how news works? Blame the suits who hired a talentless amateur named Ronan Farrow.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHY_xOj2M_g PistolsForPandas

    Do you think the WTC jumpers were heroes or zeroes?
    O_o

    Play him off, Keyboard Cat!
