Sure, why not? NBC set a new industry standard with at least eight documented incidents of selective video editing.
Former network producer Greg Kandra, who last worked at NBC for Katie Couric, said he was done defending the so-called mainstream media from charges of liberal bias.
"Forget it. I’m done," he wrote, adding:
"You deserve what they’re saying about you. It’s earned. You have worked long and hard to merit the suspicion, acrimony, mistrust and revulsion that the media-buying public increasingly heaps upon you. You have successfully eroded any confidence, dispelled any trust, and driven your audience into the arms of the Internet and the blogosphere, where biases are affirmed and like-minded people can tell each other what they hold to be true, since nobody believes in objective reality any more. You have done a superlative job of diminishing what was once a great profession and undermining one of the vital underpinnings of democracy, a free press."
He concluded by asking NBC: "What the hell is wrong with you guys?"

I say there's nothing ¨wrong¨ with NBC (et al) because they're well aware of the millions of fools who are manipulated easier than silly putty.
Shep Smith laid into his own network Wednesday, calling out Fox News for its role in hyping the Shirley Sherrod story based on an edited videotape (h/t Mediaite).

Smith's critique began when he cut into Wednesday's briefing by White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. He opened by naming a long list of participants in the Sherrod affair, from the White House to the NAACP to the Big Government website, which posted the edited video, to "this network," Fox News — which, he said, was one of the places where the video had been played "totally out of context."

He went on to explain why his program, unlike others on Fox News, had not covered the story:

"We here at Studio B did not run the video and did not reference the story in any way for many reasons, among them: we didn't know who shot it, we didn't know when it was shot, we didn't know the context of the statement, and because of the history of the videos on the site where it was posted, in short we do not and did not trust the source."

so have you seen how many of the local nutjobs are still ignoring the unedited video?

manipulated indeed.

Haavud eh?

As I recall, Gen Shinseki told bushie boy he needed at least 400,000 to have a high probability of making the incursion a victory. Rummy wanted 75,000.

He was promptly fired by bushie boy.

Joe Biden feeds the idiots watching ¨The View¨:

“How many of you are single women with children with a dead-end job … there because of your health insurance.”

“You would rather have the opportunity to spend the next couple years with your children,[but] you’re not trapped in that job.”

Enter Obamacare, and he said,“You’re [now] able to make a choice.… Did you know you can get health insurance absent that job?”

Biden’s final message to women: Obamacare “gives women a great deal more freedom” and the ability to quit their jobs and stay home with their children.

This is the liberal moron one heartbeat away from the presidency.

Maybe Joe forgot that these children who now have ¨free¨ health care have to eat, wear clothing, and live in suitable housing.

On Joe's planet does mom get all that ¨free¨, too?
Yeah

Well gee son. You used marketers as a beating tool.

Yet when it comes to actually producing the proof to support your claim, poof!!

Zero. Zilch. Nada.

Then you dump and run.

Then complain about others not doing what you won't do yourself!

So yes, you do "...squabble, attack or other negative behaviors (sic)' on a regular basis... you just don't count it...
