MSNBC tragically making stuff up for sensationalism and ratings!

Well, it didn’t take long for the cable news station that asks its viewers to LEAN FORWARD (into the idiot box) got caught outright fabricating news in its sensationalist graphics to try to make themselves oh so cutting edge in the Tucson affair:

Here’s a graphic MSNBC was using yesterday in its coverage of the Tucson shootings:

It’s a powerful image. I saw it at the gym on a number of muted televisions, and it stuck with me.

It’s also complete bullshit. There is zero evidence that political rhetoric had any influence on Jared Loughner. In fact, there’s increasing evidence that he had no interest in politics at all. So does the truth simply not matter at MSNBC

Of course, Loughner’s circle of acquaintances have stated it loudly and often that he didn’t watch television or care for politics at all (it’s hardly something that’s easy to escape, even on the internet). So I’m anxiously awaiting to see how the executives at NBC will end up trying to paint people who don’t watch TV or root for a team in politics with that freshly dipped brush of “crazy” they’re holding.

    Hurray for the Hammer of Truth! Finaly some one who tells it like it is! MSNBC is the propaganda wing of the left-wing liberal democratic machine. They don,t know the meaning of unbiased news reporting. They cater to the left-wing fringe of snobs who are ignorant enough to believe everything MSNBC makes up. One of the worst-Olberman-is gone now. One miss-informing Snob down, with a few more to go. Truth always triumphs over lies in the long run!
