With no respect for this floozy, Andrea Mitchell is a liar

After Mrs. Grenspan misrepresented the remarks of Mitt Romney and she was caught the network tried to recover when it made the following comment the next day - "The RNC and the campaign both reached out to us saying that Romney had more to say about that visit -- about federal bureaucracy and innovation in the private sector," she said before the clip aired.

MSNBC issued a statement stating that it "did not edit anything out of order or out of sequence and at no time did we intend to deceive our viewers."  Yeah Right, and Dan Rather was a responsible journalist.  Distorting the context and substance of a candidate's remarks is unethical.  But then this idiot does not understand anything about journalistic ethics.

The simple response to a journalist who has been caught as a liar is to proclaim what she did.  She lied. She got caught.  She should be fired.   But then MSNBC is already at the bottom of the ratings pile so who would care?   For one, I would.

It is a shame that Andrea Mitchell is allowed to remain at MSNBC but then again this is why they're at the bottom of the ratings. Their use of mistruths reflect their agenda. Hopefully a responsible viewer would recognize the misrepresentations. On the other hand their viewers are such that they likely believe what is said due to their own underlying beliefs. Any responsible journalist should do the right thing and call Andrea Mitchell and MSNBC out on their mistruths.
