Third time's not the charm

Daily Item

---- — Doing it once could be seen as an unfortunate stumble. Doing it three times is seen as a corporate policy.

NBC and MSNBC, owned by Comcast Corp. CEO Brian Roberts, have repeatedly been found guilty of deliberately editing tapes to push a leftist agenda.

Mr. Roberts' new operation maliciously edited the 911 call made by George Zimmerman to make him look racist.

Mr. Roberts' news operation deliberately edited a tape of Mitt Romney to make him look "out of touch" over ordering a sandwich at a convenience store. The unedited tape showed the opposite. When Martin Baskin aired testimony of Neil Heslin, the father of a Sandy Hook victim, MSNBC deliberately cut out part of Heslins' remarks to make it appear as though he was interrupted by heckling gun advocates.

Former U.S. Attorney General, Richard Thornburgh led an independent investigation during the CBS networks' "Rathergate" scandal -- CBS anchor, Dan Rather, was caught using fake documents in a story smearing George W. Bush. The irresponsible conduct of NBC and MSNBC demands no less -- an outside investigation by an authority with unquestionable honor and integrity. This is important. Call or write Congress today!

To keep America free we must have fair and honest news reporting.

A Pew Research Center study has found MSNBC, which masquerades as a news network, is really filled with left-wing commentary and opinion for 85 percent of its airtime. Chris Matthew with his "crush" on President Obama, barely coherent Ed Schultz, and Rachel Maddow, who loves to rip apart Republicans.

Dictators rise to power when the media is corrupt!

There are four cities going bankrupt.

Detroit has had a big government Democratic Mayor since 1961.

Buffalo has had one since 1954.

Cincinnati had one since 1984.

Cleveland has had one since 1989.
