    There have been a few game attempts to ignore the obvious and claim the special edit doesn’t change the nature of what transpired. That’s ludicrous. The segment removed from the video circulated by MSNBC, among other sources, was carefully and deliberately excised to wipe out the inconvenient moment when Heslin specifically asked for a response… and then proved it wasn’t rhetorical by using the resulting silence as “proof” that his argument was correct.
    On more than one occasion BSNBC has been proven to doctor video or tapes to fit their agenda.

    Exclamation NBC edits away...

    NBC tries to enlist outrage at a father during a testimony by some fancy editing.

    This NRA video is over 17 minutes long but if you want to cut to the quick, the clip of what happened is at the 4 minute mark, and how NBC showed it is at the 12 min 30 second mark.

    This is how we will loose unless you get politically active and contact your Representatives, call them often, and let them know no new gun laws!!

    Wow, it really was edited. The version I saw had the people yelling that right after he asked the question.

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Yeah they made it look like the pro gunners just interrupted the father as he was speaking.. Thats what we are dealing with today. We have a Media that is so one sided that it is scary and dangerous. The television and radio industries are trying to change this country as obama leads the way. Promoting this so called "New Normal" I say boycott cable news or all cable.. Would love to see that happen. Why watch the news if its all a bunch of lies?

    BSNBC has a long history of deceptive reporting and outright lies.

    If people are watching, and have been watching, msnbc as a reliable news source, I'm afraid its far too late for them. They have been spoon fed far too much biased edited garbage, that there is no way to correct the damage.

    You are right. They have become Ogoebels propaganda machine.

    Maybe it's time we took a hard look at the First Amendment and made it a crime to alter a news clip or story to twist what really happened punishable by hefty fines and jail time,then see how quick journalists cry out about their FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS.

    I saw this video elsewhere. Where is the accountability or consequences for these actions? Is there no person in these media organizations who holds a position of authority that can be objective enough to say this is wrong, we cannot manufacture the news, even if it advances our agenda? Too many people are losing their grip on right vs wrong and they wonder why violence is a problem? Geez...

    I think you are exactly right!! When did the First Amendment begin to mean freedom from the truth. I keep asking why some smart lawyer has figured out how to bring a class action lawsuit over their selective editing. When it starts costing them something to spread lies maybe it'll stop.

    Are they the same folks who edited George Zimmerman's recorded 911 call regarding the shooting of Trayvon Martin to make Zimmerman sound more "racist"? And wasn't an Associate Producer fired as a sacrificial lamb when the sensationalist editing was made public?

    Uhhh, folks...if you don't understand by now that the media is less of an information source & more of a propaganda machine, then you may need to WAKE UP!

    The very ones and several years ago they added explosives to Chevy pickups when they did not explode due to side impacts the way they reported.
