NewsBuster Scott Whitlock catches media leftist Norah O'Donnell engaging in a bit of MSDNC mendacity. O'Donnell had the gall to insist that Michelle Obama "never said that she had not been proud of her country." The cable host's deception came on Friday while she was spinning for the First Lady while ostensibly reporting on a speech Sarah Palin delivered in California:
In fact, on February 18, 2008, Mrs. Obama addressed a crowd in Wisconsin and announced, "For the first time in my adult lifetime, I'm really proud of my country, and not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change." [See video. MP3 audio here.]Gotta watch these soulless media maggots like a hawk.
On Thursday, Palin wondered, "You know, when I hear people say or had said during the campaign, that they had never been proud of America until, until that time, I think haven't they met anybody in uniform yet?" This prompted O'Donnell, during a supposedly straight news report, to chide, "Of course, Mrs. Obama never said that. She never said that she had not been proud of her country."
Now, perhaps O'Donnell was trying to argue grammatical semantics over the words "really" or "adult lifetime." But, clearly, Obama was saying that she hadn't previously been proud of America.
Of course, Norah O'Donnell is the same person who berated then-17-year old Jackie Seal for her support of Palin.
