Is there something about the word 'DECEPTIVE' that you don't understand?

You mean NPR "admits" Schiller's comments were horrendous as taken out of context?
Except...none of that is true.

He made the comments, he agreed with the comments, even NPR admits it and it cost at least 3 of those executives their jobs, including the top dog.

The guy is a friggin HERO.

I'm trying to find his interview, where he said he was not a republican. I don't remember his exact words, but nice try saying that he is.
And you don't really care about deception anyways. That is what you left is all about. So trying to call out anyone on something that you guys do daily, is not going to fly.

I agree with Sanrene on this one. The video was edited by Mr. O'Keefe, for sure. All news media edits their raw news. It is the practice. All news media edit the news to reflect their own agenda. Show me an unbiased news organization and I'll show you a purple sun.

Those people who are outraged at the selective editing that Mr. O'keefe did on this story should also be outraged by the selective editing done by Fox News, or MSNBC, The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, or any other news media outlet.

The same goes for those who treat Mr. O'Keefe's creative editing with a grain of salt. Give other news organizations the same leeway in the way they edit if it's thought that this journalistic method exposes the truth.

In my opinion there is an art to editing and Mr. O'Keefe is no maestro.

He [is a pretty good looking guy who] made [me think of] the [sweet] comments [he'd be whispering in my ear].

See what I did there?

I know I don't have to explain the concept of editing to you, so quit playing stupid.

Oh puh-lease. There's a world of difference between an edited video, say, for the sake of time, and an DECEPTIVELY EDITED video, done intentionally, WITH MALICE.

That you don't draw any distinction between these practices speaks volumes about your bias.

How they continue to defend this miscreant after the boat incident is totally beyond me.

Kudos to The Blaze for some excellent investigative journalism.

I agree he went over the boundaries of normal journalism, but all organizations edit to their bias. Malicious or not, that is the intent.

No, I have no idea what you did, as it makes no sense to me.

How can one deceptively edit a video while at the same time putting out the WHOLE video for people to watch, which circumvents people like you making the false straw man claims?

Yeah, and NPR rolls over because of "deception".

Well exactly. Do we really think they would have fired Ms Vivian if the tape was deceptive?

Of course not. I'm sure they watched the whole 2 hour unedited video, just as I'm sure most on here haven't.
