Hat tips to The Blaze and Townhall for this catch.

A clip from a recent Romney/Ryan rally has recently been played over and over at MSNBC highlighting what appears to be an embarrassing moment on the campaign trail for Governor Romney. Originally aired on Wednesday’s “Morning Joe,” the clip shows Paul Ryan introducing Romney as the MSNBC-added text appears on the screen proclaiming that the crowd is shouting “Ryan!” Romney gets the mic and asks the crowd to say “Romney/Ryan!” Joe Scarborough covers his face and grumbles out the words, “Sweet Jesus.”

Then the Blaze received a call from one of the rally attendees:

During Thursday‘s edition of TheBlaze TV’s “Pat & Stu,” one caller gives her account of the campaign rally.

“The crowd was yelling,” caller Sherry recounts, “the crowd was screaming ‘Romney! Romney!’ and Romney, being the gentleman [he is], we can‘t get in his head because he’s so stinking nice, he stopped us to add ‘Romney-Ryan.’”

Townhall’s Greg Hengler stitched the videos together so that you can see what MSNBC has done.

This hatchet job marks the second time that MSNBC has created a problem for Romney by doctoring video. The first happend in June, when Andrea Mitchell aired deceptively edited video made to depict Romney as out of touch about WaWa convenience stores.

Last week, Mitchell refused to air video of Barack Obama stating clearly that he supports “redistribution” of wealth. Mitchell and her network’s excuse was that the video had not been “verified.” The network eventually aired the video, but only after obtaining a longer version of the clip that they claimed helped put Obama’s comments into “context.”

Earlier this year, MSNBC’s parent NBC repeatedly aired deceptively edited clips of George Zimmerman’s 911 call, to make him appear to have racial motives in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

The network’s latest deception shows that there is some serious rot at NBC.
