    You’ve got to hand it to the good folks at Mediaite. These guys are on top of everything in the media world. This time Mediaite has uncovered the fact that Media Matters, the left-biased media slanderers paid for by George Soros, have been caught doing precisely what they claimed that New Media maven Andrew Breitbart did to Shirely Sherrod a few weeks ago. Namely foisted an edited tape on the world in order to slander someone in the public eye. This time, instead of revealing a race worried USDA official, Media Matters is attempting to put false words in the mouths of a pair of side kicks of radio and TV talker Glenn Beck.

    Media Matters touted what they felt was a big, big story. They claimed that two of Beck’s sidekicks were falsely claiming that MSNBC host Keith Olbermann was “responsible” for the Manchester shooting. To prove it, Media Matters presented a tape of the two hosts actually saying that Olbermann is responsible for the murders.

    Seems like a slam dunk, right? These ignorant right-wing radio guys were blaming Olbermann for murder. Throw the book at them!

    Only, Media Matters somehow, accidentally, merely by complete innocent absent-mindedness, forgot to add the rest of the tape to their “proof” of the righty talker’s apostasy.

    It turns out that the two hosts were only talking sarcastically and in the next seconds of the tape admitted that Olbermann had nothing to do with the murders and that they were just trying to use sarcasm to make a point.

    Host Burguiere went on to say:

    Oopsie. But we are sure that Media Matters just made a simple mistake…. right?

    Media Matters has updated their post to reflect the truth, of course, but doesn’t this all make you wonder just how reliable Media Matters is? And isn’t there just a bit of hypocrisy in a so-called media watchdog that uses exactly the same illicit tactics that they castigate everyone else for using??

    Pop on over to Mediaite to hear the tape and get all the details.
  2. Based on some of the ETers who get their info from them, it doesn't surprise me. Lying, blaming Bush and playing the race card are all the libtards have left.

  3. When you have an agenda, "the end justifies the means".. truth/facts not really a consideration..
  4. this is standard practice by Media Matters and other so -called fact sites run by the left. They take statements that are obviosuly meant as satire or hyperbole and ake them literally. then they calim...surprise, that Rush lied! or Sarah Palin lied!

    The lairs are Media Matters, but that is what Soros is paying them to do. You have to wonder where they find people to do this sort of work however.
