David Gregory you lied to our faces today

On MTP Gregory was discussing Rice's comments about Benghazi and purported to replay for us the relevant part of the comments. From the transcript of 16 September I have all of what she said the bold is what Gregory left out.

MS. RICE: Well, let us-- let me tell you the-- the best information we have at present. First of all, there’s an FBI investigation which is ongoing. And we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpired. But putting together the best information that we have available to us today our current assessment is that what happened in Benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in Cairo, almost a copycat of-- of the demonstrations against our facility in Cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video. What we think then transpired in Benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. They came with heavy weapons which unfortunately are readily available in post revolutionary Libya. And it escalated into a much more violent episode. Obviously, that’s-- that’s our best judgment now. We’ll await the results of the investigation. And the president has been very clear--we’ll work with the Libyan authorities to bring those responsible to justice.

What was left out is quite important. If you stop before my bolding, ad the lying Gregory did, then you would believe that the attack was perpretrated by people who were inspired either by the video or copying them. But when you put the stuff I have in bold in there, well then a little different picture begins to emerge. One of people taking full advantage of a demonstration to hide an attack, which incidentally, is pretty much what the CIA said happened.

6. 3.1 million people watch MTP on any given Sunday...

That's less than 1% of the populations.

I know the show is a big influence on the movers and shakers as well as the smooshers and ass licker's that reinforce the self importance of the movers and the shakers, but you have to put this all in perspective...

8. I caught that! What was amazing to me was that FEINSTEIN & the others didn't know what she'd said!

That they didn't know that Rice had included that extra terminology, was SHOCKING to me! This is a MAJOR claim by the rightwing, and Feinstein has been defending Rice and apparently doesn't even know what she said?????

Grrrrrr. this gets me spittin' mad.

9. Earlier today I heard people defending David Gregory and I wondered if I had stumbled upon the wrong

blog. The guy is a joke and anyone here who defends him is a troll as far as I am concerned.

14. Aw, come on. That's going too far. But today, leaving out the end of the Rice clip is surely

proof that he is NOT fair and balanced. This was an intentional misrepresentation.

But...I blame Feinstein and the others for not knowing what Rice said. She'd apparently not read the quotes or watched the clips herself.

11. This Sunday and EVERY Sunday, that's Meet The Press.

Stop watching, let them wither and die instead of using you as justification to people looking to buy ad time in order to fund a right wing propaganda platform.

18. MTP on NBC, owned by GE (nation's second-largest defense contractor). Need

 

I say more? I'd call Gregory a 'whore,' except that doing so risks insulting legitimate sex workers.

15. "Current political problem." It's all a game to them.

To keep us bamboozled, upset, confused. While they take our money.

17. If you despise David Gregory as much as I do...

"Remove David Gregory as host of Meet the Press" is a new facebook page. Please support us and "like" if you feel so inclined. I just started it and It's not very sexy as I'm trying figure the mechanics of it out, but I promise to keep it as up to date as I can
