MSNBC distortions trying to start a race war, distortions on guns

I have written extensively about the media distortions over people carrying guns at various health care protests (see here).


Showing the clip of a man carrying the “assault rifle,” but editing it so that one was not able to see the man’s race, Contessa Brewer said: “But also there are questions whether this has a racial overtone. I mean here you have a man of color in the presidency and white people showing up with guns strapped to their wastes.” Another person on the same show noted the “anger about a black person being president” and about "the black man becoming president. You know we see these hate groups rising up.”

Now watch this and you will see clearly from CNN that shows the man carrying the gun is black.


UPDATE: Of course the entire event in Arizona was staged.

"Oh, it's more planned than you think," Hancock responded. He then let loose with a string of details, including how Hancock contacted the Phoenix police department days before the event and how he was partially motivated to do so because of the controversy surrounding William Kostric, the man armed with a gun outside of Obama's town hall in New Hampshire last week. . . .


UPDATE2: I posted elsewhere this response from MSNBC.

Maybe we should organize a mass boycott of their sponsors.

This is far more egregious than Beck's rant. Beck's a talking head, spouting opinions.

MSNBC pretends to be the news.

I love how the guy on CNN repeatedly referred to the Pro-Obama folk as peaceful, and the Anti-Obama folk were repeatedly characterized as shouting...

I live in AZ and was at this event, saw Chris walking around very peacefully, along with others as this is an open carry state.

What is missing from perspective of media is HOW RESPONSIBLE this organization was in contacting the police prior to explain what they were doing; who was going to be involved, the details of their intent and then working in concert with the police to assure the safety of our citizens and any political figures at this rally.

This group acted MORE responsible than any nutter who would otherwise obtain a gun illegally and start shooting - yet the media never points out this high sense of responsibility exampled to the American public.

Why is that? You can't spot what you ain't got - developed personal responsibility.
