MSNBC faking another video? Shocker(not so much).
Another day, another deceptively edited video from NBC News.
Here’s footage that MSNBC has just released of Neil Heslin, whose son was murdered in Newtown, speaking at a public meeting on gun control. It’s presented with the headline, “Emotional father of Sandy Hook victim heckled by gun nuts”:
Except that’s not how it happened. Twitchy has obtained the full, unedited video, and the relevant portion is at the 15:20 mark:
He wasn’t heckled. He asked the question and demanded an answer. There was complete silence. And only then, when he said that not one person could answer it — rather than remaining quiet out of respect for his feelings — did a few people answer it. You might not like their answer if you don’t like the Second Amendment, but that answer wasn’t unprompted. They were not heckling him.
