Accuracy in Media exposes BLATANT media bullying from MSNBC over Romney prank story

This you’ve just gotta see. It’s a MSNBC mashup from AIM of how they covered the Washington Post’s story on Romney’s 1965 prank yesterday. It’s almost unbelievable, and that’s saying a lot considering it’s MSNBC.

And don’t bail on it early or you will miss the worst part at the end:

    Trying to gin up some hate for Romney.

    Sorry, I already committed mine.. lol

  • So I guess this is the caliber of “news” to expect at least until 2016…

    Ugggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…it’s painful to think about.


      • I’ll be right there with ya buddy! LOL! I pray things turn around soon…but I doubt it.

        • Sorry about the all caps, didn’t notice till your reply. caps-lock key was stuck. Not looking forward to that day, maybe, just maybe we can dodge the bullet… just in case I’ll re-read Solzhenitsyn’s “The Gulag Archipelago”.

  • 4Hoppes2

    This is analogous to the false witness against Sarah Palin and the claims of infidelity and promiscuity. Bearing false witness against our candidates is the embodiment of an attitude of lost hope in Mr. Hope and Change.

    • Trust1TG

      The TRUTH about Romney is worse than any lie could be.

      He’s a crook, liar and liberal.

  • Sober_Thinking

    I can’t watch it. I can’t do anything to stop these idiots from being… well, idiots. And frankly, nonsense like this only makes me madder.

    I already know they are going to be unfair and illegally biased… I avoid them like the plague.

    • badbadlibs

      I’m with ya! I just can’t bring myself to watch these vile people destroy our nation with lies on lies on lies.

    • kateorjane

      I tried but just couldn’t watch either. The faces I saw as I scrolled thru it were all ones I expect to utter vile drivel so even if the end was good I had to pass on it.

  • Martin Bashir is a lying sleazy hack. MSNBC is pathetic; not only are they dishonest, biased, and unethical, they don’t even have anything remotely resembling journalistic or professional standards. They are an embarrassment to everything journalism has every stood for.

    • Trust1TG

      Bashir is a Christian.

      Romney is the lying sleazy liberal political hack…who has tried to buy and deal his way to the presidency.

      • Bashir’s no Christian. No Christian would ever associate with an organization as dishonest as NBC News.

      • Who’s got your vote Trust1TG?

        If Romney is a “sleazy liberal hack,” what is Obama?

  • your link to this video will have more hits than NAZINBC has total viewers in a week

  • Jim Gilman

    I guess I missed the unbelievable par. Did anybody else catch it?

    • Jack B. Erhart

      It was the guy at the end who recorded the segment, and thought she did a number on the conservative guy. There are a whole bunch of people out there folks that hang on every word coming out of the MSM.

      I say that every conservative should refuse to go one any of those other news shows. Let them die a slow death and be done with them. And then fix Fox…..they need help also.

  • IMO this is the stupidest thing this disconnected administration can do. People don’t like what he’s [Obama] is doing, and the more he [they] attack the candidate, the worse they will do because people no longer trust what’s going on, and the leftists are only going to leave Americans with a bad taste. Case in point, Romney did not have the conservatives, and still really doesn’t, but this kind of treatment will force even disaffected conservatives to vote against Obama only to metaphorically push his face into the mud as they kick his butt out of office. They are creating the voter base for Romney, that had they stood by and just stayed under the radar, would have never existed for the plastic-man.

    • WordsFailMe

      Typical behavior of an emperor- “Kill the messenger.”

      Of course this emperor is more like an emperor penguin.

  • HARP2

    On Nov 6 I will be voting as much against the media as against Obama. If Romney wins the media will be shaken to it`s core because they will realize they have lost their power.

    • Joe

      That’s good!!!

      • Joe

        duplicate post -sorry

  • conservative58

    Journalism at it’s best — at least ‘MSNBC best’. This was so pathetic it made me want to laugh. All that digging and this is the worst they can come up with against Romney?

    This makes me think I’m watching a dumb skit on SNL instead of news. Then again, I guess there isn’t much difference between SNL skits and MSNBC news.

  • yhxqqsn

    Bashir is just shocked that he considers his wife like his savior. I guess it must be because everyone knows that the one and only savior is BO.

  • OK if this crap keeps up, I’m goin back to the evil, bloodshot duck eyes. just sayin.

    • FreeManWalking

      LOL… I had to Zoom in on those eyes to tell what they were.

  • PFFV

    Mark Levin doesn’t call them MSLSD for nothing. Anyone watching that hack network is a damn fool anyways. I find it fascinating how no national news networks (except Fox) looked into Obama’s past at all because they were in love with their Marxist Messiah Candidate before he was elected. They create fabrications about Conservatives and run with it as if it were 100% fact and then act like spoiled rotten brats when they are told the truth. Liberals are Liars and Hypocrites… all of them!

    • WordsFailMe

      I think we may be the only ones watching and that’s why they keep it going. They keep using the same trick, over and over, “Attack the messenger, not the message!” and we keep biting. I know I do.

      These are pathetic commie operatives (stooges) and should be ignored and we are wasting our time paying any attention or expending any effort on them whatsoever.

  • yhxqqsn

    LOL. Sharpton giving us a lesson on character.

    • he much.

    • 20Chitowndemrevenuestream12

      rev al has a character issue with Romney?thats hilarious,,,,,,,, resist we much and to that we much be committed……… the platoon soundtrack in the background,,,,,,sharpton,character ,,,,bwahaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaa…..msnbc reminds me of those newscasters on monty python

  • Sometimes I wonder how MSNBC stays on the air pushing this kind of tripe. With all the immense issues facing this nation today, from our obscene national debt to the problem with Iran, which could possibly start a nuclear war, an entire network is obsessed with what a guy did in high school 50 years ago. No wonder so few people want to run for office these days. If this is what the Obama supporters have to stoop to, then I think think they should just be embarrassed. It also makes me feel pretty good about Romney winning in November, because it just means the Democrats have nothing to run on.

    • Joe

      They have a big audience on the Planet Bizarro

      The show is beamed up there!

  • I smell desperation. Of course, if Romney had run as on as a Democrat on his Liberal record, then all these jokers would love him.

  • NoToTyrants

    Hyperbolic lunacy!

    Will Florida prosecute him for 2nd degree murder?

    These were the acts of a teenage boy over 30 years ago. Hopefully, he has matured since then.

    Let’s talk about today, and the behavior of supposed adults! Today, Obama and his minions regularly uses the power of the federal government to bully productive Americans. Ask Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Ask Gibson guitars. Ask ex-EPA administrator Al Armendariz about crucifying Oil Companies. Ask coal powered electricity producers. Ask Arizona gun dealers forced to sell weapons to Mexican drug cartels. Ask the Catholic Church and other religious institutions, forced to violate their consciences when Obama mandated they provide free abortion pills and birth control to their female employees. I could continue the list until I melt the server.

  • CalCoolidge

    Here’s a story that’s going nowhere.

    • FreeManWalking

      A dog chasing its tale.

  • This is why this Conservative Mormon has no use for Romney. He’s a pandering weasel with no core.

    • KM

      Oh no…. Romney is evolving – just like your boy obama…
      Sad days for you are coming…

      • FYI, I’m a Constitutional Pro-Life Conservative who’s candidate was Palin, then Santorum. Now I’m a disgusted voter who regrettably has to drag himself to the local elementary school and vote for the guy who bought the nomination by pounding his opponents with dishonest negative advertising and who incidentally lost to the guy who lost to Marxist Obama.

        Romney is no Conservative and a lousy candidate.

  • Joe

    These dopes are freakin’ idiots

    The family of Mr. Lauber said they have no recollection of this incident

    These dopes are freakin’ idiots

    Hey –

    “Don’t let the facts get in the way of a good story”

  • HarrietHT2

    This is too funny. The state-run media makes a big whoop-de-doo about Romney possibly having engaged in what today’s college pranksters/hazers would consider tame and silly. And this is the “baggage” they wish to attach to Romney? when dear leader has trashed our economy, put Putin on notice that better days are ahead (for Russia), and hasn’t proved his qualifications for office? On a scale from one to ten, dear leader is elephant-sized dictator. Romney, maybe a 2.

  • kclightguy

    “Last Word Larry” was sure right on one thing. This contrived clip, cut and allege piece does show favoritism. Just not not the type THEY were trying to show! It’s amazing to me how suddenly the left wing media all break out in Andrews Sisters Harmony about the affronts of whichever person is the target of the hour. It’s so obviously phony that even the inbred lefty dolts that voted for the Big O have got to have a hard time keeping a straight face! Very little need to comment on Larry’s crocodile tears over the death of the supposed victim.

  • 12grace

    We the people must keep track of the liberal fools in the media or with celebrity status and stop financially supporting them.


    Did oprah’s popularity decline because many Americans feel she betrayed America by helping Obama raise millions of dollars so that he could get into office?

    How sweet it is: How much did Oprah’s star power help Obama?
    Surprise, surprise: A new study by two leading academics says Oprah Winfrey’s star power helped presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama win the primary race.
    That’s no surprise, given Winfrey’s following and the fact she’s never put her backing behind a candidate before. But, the new study pinpoints just how many people — 1,015,519 — were swayed by the Oprah/Obama team-up.
    Craig Garthwaite and Tim Moore developed numerical formulas to calibrate the total, based on Oprah’s book sales, ratings and voter turnout, reports the New York Post.

    Oprah loses millions in ad sales for ‘O’ magazine

    Report: Oprah’s Struggling Network May be in The Hole For as Much as $330M

    Personally, I will watch her new program or financially support anything that involves oprah. I wonder if other conservatives feel the same way?
    Oprah Winfrey Network Announces Reality Series!

    • I stopped watching oprah years ago when she kept peddling fake Christianity and her gurus. But it’s good to see her pride get knocked down a few notches.

    • You do know I post an open thread nearly every day now, and yet you still refuse to post these links there? Why?

      • 12grace

        RS, I am very supportive of right scoop, there is no need to be rude to me, my technical skills are lacking, I don’t know how to post on an open thread.

  • steve talley

    Its no wonder these guys only have 5000 viewers …. Their lies are knee deep.

  • FreeManWalking

    The Gaul of these White House Press Sectaries questioning Romney’s character, while giving their boss a pass on shoving a girl in school.

  • FreeManWalking

    The Rathering of Rommey, by WHNBC… White House National Bull Crap

  • FreeManWalking

    WHNBC’s next bomb to drop on Romney, we have it from good sources that Romney crapped his dipper when he was 16 months old, that just goes to shows his lack of control.

  • Luker410

    This country is being destroyed by Obama and his regime. The media especially the NBC group of acolytes for Obama, are deflecting the truth of our downfall by proposing that an event 48 years ago by a high school student, (which has been denied by several family members and key players), is important?? Are you kidding me?

  • Trust1TG

    Just because the story was false does not make Romney a decent candidate for POTUS.

    Who would want him running the country after he lied his way through the debates and took billions of taxpayer dollars to subsidize his deals, even the Olympics and left the taxpayer holding the bag for his profiteering business pranks while draining worker pension funds???

    Then there is Romneycare, gay promotion in public schools, gay marriage and adoption and public funding of abortion???

    Romney’s governorship was the experimental laboratory for Obama’s entire administration.

    Tell the RNC to forget about it.

    • I’ve been re reading some of Scoops older stories during the debates…. it’s amazing how pathetic mittens is, but because he’s anybody but obama, he’s all of a sudden gotta win. It depresses me.

  • Truth2Freedom

    incredible! no wonder the ratings of the libs are just tanking.

    Can’t wait till the expose of him not flossing in the 3rd grade which was some how inexcusable and showed his insensitivity to global warming.

  • greatj


  • FreeManWalking

    16 trillion in debt, 11+% unemployment, a sitting president telling an adversary they need to give him “space”, because he would have “more flexibility” to deal with controversial issues such as missile defense after the election; and the media wants to discuss a haircut Romney supposedly gave some kid in high school.

  • Is_Sense_Common

    I’m kinda thinkin that the only people who watch this crap are those of us who need a good laugh or a moment to get our ire up. I mean really – the accents, the sets, the ridiculous appearance of the hosts & guests – this network really just has to be a joke, right? Fresh meat for the thinking among us?

  • socialist white trash

  • that would be, trash media from communist trash


    You could do this type of video on hundreds of topics the last 3 years with O as Prez
    He has set some horrible standard we have to WASH away. Only GOD can save us at this point, I don’t care that people don’t believe this is happening. FOLKS, it happens to every government AT SOME POINT.

    WE either stand up and defend our constitution with courage against O-BLAME-O and his “followers”, or we give in and let our country rot from within.

    Yes this is 1930s stuff, happening right in front of our eyes.
    I think the man is insane myself, to think he can say and do what he does, but that may be just me.

    In my memory, Glenn Beck started getting on the bad side of MSNBC/libs/progs along with Sean and RUSH.
    I think GB “touch” was he went off the rails with 1 hour monologs and the progs in the WH went to WAR.

    KO fought back, lied his butt off with his PROG guests, and things have spiraled out of control ever since to get things posted on the internet.

    The are all fighting FOX because FOX pushed back, and now things are spiraling out of control with MSNBC and CNN basically sanctioned by O-BLAME-O to protect and defend him at ALL cost.

    If they (MSM) did not, I think by now he would have been taken down by the LAW.

    He subverted the constitutution because he owns the law. and he gets his judges appointed by deeming it so now days.

    Has anyone ever seen a President lie so much, about almost everything???

    Now he is trying to go legit as he panders to the left, and try to look moderate as he campains. HE IS EVEN NOT GOING TO MARTHA’S VINYARD THIS YEAR HE IS SO FOCUSED. What a bunch of suckers we must look like to HIM.

    I still think the plan is to push the conservatives PAST a breaking point, and we are now there, along with the financial TIPPING point, which I think was fall of 2009.

    I felt it in my gut, that fall, as Sean, Beck, Mark, and RUSH, noticed he just wanted to do what he wanted, and was LAWLESS, because he was PRESIDENT, and he was BLACK, and how dare us try to disagree with his ideas.

    You know (riots) it is his TRUMP card now. AL SHarpton is already giving you the playbook. have you noticed?

    That (3 years ago) was when the racism issue and making him the “other” came up.

    Chris Matthews lost his mind at this point (3 years ago), and that seemed to give everyone the courage to say anything to attack conservatives, and we fight back, and they attack that!.

    Our country has gone haywire NOW, and it was all planned, and Nov elections will be a horror and the media will be beyond repair IMHO.

    We may have to make the Presidency more restricted if Romney makes it.

    The list of things O has done to harm his people is so long, and wil go down in history as maybe our darkest moments.

    Sounds like a book, no?

    I have always wanted to write it, but it is plaing out in front front of me worse than anything I can write about.

    I think PROGS are COMMIES.
    They are not tinkering around the edges here folks.
    This is collaspe and revolution from within by creating unrest.
    As RUSH would say, don’t doubt me, but is it not obvious?
    They don’t want to grow the pie, they want to take the pie for themselves.

    Just a thought, we have kids in colleges, learning to protest, from highly paid ELITE professors, running up 200k debt for jobs that WILL NOT BE THERE under O-BLAME-O?

    Lets just call him President INSTIGATOR, and MAN, he is good.

    I pray we can self correct here, as long as the constitution can hold us together.

  • Romney is awesome now…..I really wasn’t liking Romney but after this….He is ready to lead

  • KM

    MSNBC tends to only stimulate only the most leftist of the lefties.

    Notice that the obama doesn’t refer to “hope” and “change” anymore. Time for the GOP to run this country for a few years to fix the obama/bided/reid/pelosi catastrophe.

  • texasgirl46

    The video is almost unbearable..They are absolutely pathetic….and apparently getting desperate…

    Lets see, high school prank VS smoking crack…..tuff choice, right?

  • Thank you for stiffening the support for the conservative candidate MSNBC… God what fools.

  • Bucketheadbaptist

    I wish I could say that I’m amazed that sleaze journalism could exist in this day and age…

    I wish I could…

  • brendawatkins

    What a PATHETIC bunch! All this DRAMA over a PRANK that may have, or may NOT have happened. And for them to bring Obama up over anti-bullying is a JOKE! He IS the BIGGEST BULLY in this country, and he uses his power to get away with it. I swear only stupid people listen to this garbage and actually believe it!

  • hbnolikeee

    Some prank alright. This is a lot worse then doing a little blow and some weed I guess. Someone needs to grow a pair and scream this when the subject is brought up.

    It is nonsense and more importantly misdirection from real issues.

  • That hair probably grew back thicker and a lot faster than the economy under this bully STILL in the WH.

  • dontdrinkthecoolaid

    Do you think they’ll cover what Lauber’s family had to say about the entire incident? It never happend. How about some retractions?

  • DebbyX

    What’s left to say…………….they’re all pathetic.

  • Good ole commie boy Larry O at the end of that clip, “This man will never get an apology for this event because HE IS DEAD, he died in 2004.” So basically he is supposedly to have lived in shame for 39 more years of a prank. How do you know Larry that Romney didnt apologize previously? Oh thats right you dont cuz the guy is dead so you cant ask him.

  • MrMicawber

    Oh man, that ending had me laughing on the floor. What a clown!!! LOL! And Matthews: “how do we know? There may have been many other people’s hair that he cut…” LOL!!
