This certainly isn't the first time dishonest journalism has been blogged about, and this most definitely won't be the last.
MSNBC and Andrea Mitchell have been caught... again. What did they do this time? Well, you decide. Here are 3 links; one from the "right" in Fox News, one from the "left" in The Huffington Post, and a non-mainstream write-up that captured this, too.

I recently wrote (http://loudmouthelephant.blogspot.com/2012/06/fill-in-blank-obama-campaign-is-based.html) that it seems that the Obama campaign and the liberal mainstream media's biggest play is to spin, deceive, and mislead. I gave specific examples of this. Of course, many people will say, "well, both sides do it, too." Okay... fine. Back it. I asked for examples. I'm open to hearing it. In fact, I said the following:
- "Now before you jump up and say, "well, it's being done by the Romney campaign, too," me and the writers of this blog say, "okay, we are open to it... let's see it." If you have something that you think the Romney campaign is doing that is misleading, please share it in the comments section below. Frankly, I'm not seeing it yet. But if it's out there, please share it. It's all about learning and sharing information."
The point of this post and the previously linked post is to point out the deception on the left. I've heard all too often the liberal chant "Fox News lies," and every time I've asked the chanter (whether it has been someone on the street or a personal friend) for evidence, they have none. This isn't about policies. This isn't about Obama versus Romney. This is about truth. This is about honest reporting and honest campaigning. For those that say "Fox News lies" and "Romney lies" I would like to hear some examples. Where did Fox News lie? Where did the Romney campaign mislead in the promotion of Mitt Romney as the Obama campaign has? If both sides do it, where is the "doing it" on the right? The Obama campaign has spun the "Massachusetts was 47th in job creation under Romney" baloney out of control. Does anyone have the balance coming form the Romney side?
What do you think?
