NBC didn't play the whole Biden "crisis test" tape

Breitbart.tv provides the video clip along with this text:

In this clip, McCain spokeswoman Nancy Pfotenhauer presses Andrea Mitchell to play all of the audio of Joe Biden's comments to supporters where he predicts an "international crisis" if Obama is elected. Mitchell says, "I think we played the whole thing."

But as Breitbart.tv documented on Tuesday, the clip that Mitchell used was not from the Seattle event, but rather much milder comments made in San Francisco. MSNBC has even labeled the incorrect audio as being from the Seattle event.

Hat tip: Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit who says, "Andrea Mitchell busted on a Biden converup."

I am so bloody tired of the MSM running interference for Biden and St. Barack. Should the Democrats take this election (notice I didn't say "win"), they will have to actually perform. I fully expect them to fail miserably. Call it schadenfreude, but I will be quite smugly happy when their plans turn to fecal matter.

John, There is a great article on Drudge. I have been hearing about it all day. Man, this guy takes the liberal media to the woodshed. You will love this, it reinforces everything you have told us.

Would the Last Honest Reporter Please Turn On the Lights?
By Orson Scott Card

Excerpts:

Your job, as journalists, is to tell the truth. That's what you claim you do, when you accept people's money to buy or subscribe to your paper.

But right now, you are consenting to or actively promoting a big fat lie — that the housing crisis should somehow be blamed on Bush, McCain, and the Republicans. You have trained the American people to blame everything bad — even bad weather — on Bush, and they are responding as you have taught them to.

If you had any personal honor, each reporter and editor would be insisting on telling the truth — even if it hurts the election chances of your favorite candidate.
