Ugh. MSNBC has been caught red handed misleading people before by selectively editing George Zimmerman’s 911 call, but apparently they didn’t learn. Now they are selectively editing Mitt Romney, completely taking him out of context to make him seem out of touch with the common man.
Soopermexican is the one who discovered the smear. Kudos to him for exposing it.
First watch this video of Andrea Mitchell at MSNBC playing the selectively edited portion of Romney’s speech:
With that editing it does look like he’s never even been to a hoagie store. But that’s not it at all. He was making a comparison of the government vs private sector, how difficult it was for a optometrist to change his address via the post office vs ordering a Hoagie at Wawa. Watch the video below:
Romney isn’t out of touch here at all. Whether you like his comparison or not, it was absolutely not what was represented by MSNBC.
New media rules.
