"Audience members merely answered a challenge that Heslin posed from the microphone."

For some reason DC neglects to mention Heslin's "challenge" which was:

"I ask if there's anybody in this room that can give me one reason or challenge this question: Why anybody in this room needs to have an, one of these assault-style weapons or military weapons or high-capacity clips.....Not one person can answer that question."

And the audience's "answer" which was:

"Second Amendment shall not be infringed."

Now watch as we substitute a generic discussion (and/or rant)  about gun control for a discussion of how MSNBC falsified the news. Let's see if anyone notices.

The Daily Caller chiding MSNBC over journalistic integrity.

Twitchy.com has been all over the story of NBC's latest... I was about to say "latest ethical lapse," but that would imply they have any ethics to begin with.

What a terrific opening sentence! I'm sure that what's to follow will be a level-headed discussion of the matter.

If anyone noticed, there is no correlation between assault rifles and the number of dead school children. In fact, back before the discovery of penicillin, more school kids died in a day than here in 2013.

Fox News and 1000 right wing radio programs edit tape 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for years on end with the sole purpose of twisting the facts to make Democrats and liberals look bad.

MSNBC might have been caught doing it once.

Translation- both sides are bad so stop criticizing us for doing it.

The real funny thing is that they're implying that Twitchy and Daily Caller actually had ethics at all.

Even if it was 100% true, this sentence hurts his point as it gives people the impression that his personal bias will be frequent in the article.

Twitchy.com has been all over the story of NBC's latest... I was about to say "latest ethical lapse," but that would imply they have any ethics to begin with. Let's just call it the latest example of NBC lying so egregiously, even a few other liberal media outlets are calling them out on it. Twitchy deserves our thanks for catching the lie and presenting the truth.

Smart move, considering that Heslin wasn't, in fact, heckled. Audience members merely answered a challenge that Heslin posed from the microphone.

So, if a comedian says "No guy can say ______." and a guy 'responds,' that's not heckling?

I love the "this outrageous offense against the honest, sacred, pious citizens of Newtown SHALL NOT STAND, sir, no, it SHALL NOT STAND.  We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight in the fields, etc." outrage of the blogger.  Yes, only you, patriotic citizen, stand between us and black helicopter tyranny.

That's impossible. TFA assures us:

So now MSNBC will "review" it, and in a few days they'll put out a press release saying they've taken measures to ensure it won't happen again, and that'll be it.

If they corrected the problem that quickly, they're obviously just trying to make Twitchy and Daily Caller look bad.

It's not broad at all. it just refers to "arms," not "all arms."
Fully automatic weapons are banned, and that somehow isn't seen as a violation of the 2nd Amendment.

Or pass a law that takes it to the Supreme Court and possibly get new and different interpretation.

If you're lucky, they'll broaden it to include machine guns, sawed-off shotguns and F-16s!

Best link I could find that wasn't to an actual Twitchy page.

Cliff Notes: Jason Biggs emerges from nowhere and writes some mean and vulgar tweets about Republican women. Twitchy notes he has a show (really!) debuting on Nickelodeon, and makes it their mission to get him fired, posting a new article every time he says anything. I kid you not: for a while on the Twitchy homepage they had categories "POLITICS | NEWS | ENTERTAINMENT | JASON BIGGS" or something like that.

Actually, they've been caught numerous times lately. In addition to this, they've also:

1. Edited the Zimmerman 911 call to make him appear racist.
2. Edited video showing an armed black man at a Tea Party rally so you couldn't tell he was black, with the implication that the armed person was white and racist.
3. Said that Steve Perry was talking about President Obama when he mentioned a "big, black cloud that hangs over America", when in fact Perry was talking about the national debt.

No "need." The original assault weapons ban was not deemed unconstitutional.


The original ban never showed up in front of SCOTUS. In fact, there was little organized legal opposition. The legal environment is much different today.

Wooly Bully: It's Tucker f*cking Carlson, for Christ's sake. Who gives a flying f*ck?


I never thought I'd say someone lost credibility after giving up a bow tie, but here we are.

Hell, he was a primetime MSNBC host from 2005-08 and kept being paid as a contributor for one more year. Didn't he follow Olbermann?

Even better, this is from 2 days ago:

Mediaite Interview: Tucker Carlson Slams Ed Schultz And CNN, Feels Bad For Keith Olbermann, Praises MSNBC

In fact, Carlson warned MSNBC against toning down their pro-Democratic editorial voice down in President Barack Obama's second term as some have suggested. Carlson lauded the network for being honest about its mission, and said that their success in recent years is testament to the goodwill honesty yields.

I'm not saying it was the father's motivation, but if someone is asking a question of an audience who isn't willing to respond for whatever reason and then the question asker attempts to make the point that "no one can answer my question", I can understand people wanting that point not to be made. If MSNBC thought that the way things happened for real was still heckling, they wouldn't have edited the video. It was sleezy and if those of us who consider ourselves liberal want to believe that the media we listen to is better than the right-wing media, then we should expect better of them then shiat like this. Way to go to undermine your credibility MSNBC.

The word "reasonable" in any matter of law makes my head want to explode. There is no objective, definitive definition of what makes a restriction "reasonable".

I'm not looking for private ownership of machine guns or F16s or nuclear bombs, just an end to the ceaseless interpretation of the 2nd that is preventing us from doing anything about gun violence.
