More Palin derangement from MSNBC's loosest cannon (he is, now that Olbermann's gone to Gore some
MSNBC's Chris Matthews on Wednesday decided to wade into the Rick Santorum-Sarah Palin-CPAC dust-up by cherry-picking what the former Pennsylvania Senator told S.E. Cupp on Glenn Beck's online program the day before.NewsBusters Noel Sheppard says we should just imagine how ugly Matthews will get when the 2012 primaries get into full swing. We don't know, for it's hard to imagine the "civility" of Matthews and MSNBC getting much uglier. But as for it getting more unhinged and probably certifiable, not much imagination is needed. The cheese fell off Matthews' cracker long ago.
Not surprisingly, by presenting only his biased and abbreviated side of the story, the "Hardball" host attacked both Palin and Santorum...
Matthews and Company chose to air only fifteen seconds of a 44 second video. They apparently didn't have an additional 29 seconds of air time for "Hardball" viewers to see Santorum's entire response to Cupp's question...
Matthews, being the spectacular investigative journalist he's known to be, chose not to inform his small viewership of this fact, or that this was the third year in a row that Palin turned down an invitation from CPAC.
Such inconvenient truths would have gotten in the way of his ability to besmirch and degrade two conservatives in one fell swoop.
