    NBC News is attempting to turn Mitt Romney's remarks at the opening ceremonies of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah -- the games in which Romney was widely credited for turning around -- where he praised athletes for making it to the event as his "you didn't build it" moment.

    In his remarks, Romney commended the athletes' parents and their communities for making it possible for them to participate in such a sporting event:

    "You Olympians, however, know you didn't get here solely on your own power. For most of you, loving parents, sisters or brothers, encouraged your hopes, coaches guided, communities built venues in order to organize competitions. All Olympians stand on the shoulders of those who lifted them. We’ve already cheered the Olympians, let’s also cheer the parents, coaches, and communities. All right!"

    NBC News is attempting to tie Romney giving credit to the families and communities of the Olympians to President Obama crediting government for the success of businesses.

  2. have you ever heard such blatent bias disguised as actual news on abc or nbc that you wanted to put your foot through your tv?


    i actually think abc is the worst offender.
  3. NBC News didn't attempt to turns Romneys remark into a "You Didn't Build That" Moment.Romney did that for them by making a "You Didn't Build That" statement

    LOL, yeah because saying you should thank your parents for supporting you is almost the same as implying that people dont become successful based on hard work or intelligence, but because of the government......

    Id imagine this Statement from Romney will get more coverage than Obamas initial statement.......The left wing media is a joke....
  5. =================
    Amen on ABC;
    MRC busted ABC/Brian Ross,on lie/reporting ''Colorado shooter was a member of Tea Party''

    Watch the media bias for more gun control;
    problem is Dems. Republicans, NRA, USA non want more gov gun regulation.

  6. ===========
    Here is the main media pattern, they usually lie & smear;
    TV preachers[except false prophets who preach socialsim, gun control...]
    Republicans[unless they are tax & spenders,LOL]
    prolife/conservative Democrats,
    FOX news,
    JPFO[Jews for Possession of Firearms Ownership]

    Mr Romney is not really that conservative;
    only when compared to socialists... does he seem very right wing:D

    The channel that falsely accused a man, and an entire political party of mass murder on thursday is a credible source in your opinion?

    NBC, mate. Slow down. Take a deep breath.
  10. As I said in other thread, the righties took something out of context to try to exploit anything to get the media off of Romney's tax returns and Bain Capital.

    The irony is that they pulled a major Homer Simpson with a gigantic DOH!
