I started this as another thread but named the thread wrong and could not edit it, this title is more fitting. Also, I did send two emails to Rawstory between 11:30 and midnight- who knows if they were the ones - but Big props to HsiKang!!!- they were the DU person that got the screen shot at post# 109, find it in the links below - BTW this was their 1st post WOW!!!! :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause:

Ron Brynaert
Published: February 15, 2006

An article at MSNBC's Website was edited to remove references to alcohol, that may have been available at a picnic, which preceded the accidental shooting of a 78-year-old lawyer by Vice President Cheney last Saturday, RAW STORY has learned.

The change to the article was quickly noticed by a number of liberal bloggers, and their readers, many of whom have been following this much discussed story very closely for the last few days.

Armstrong also told NBC News that she does not believe alcohol was involved in the accident. She says she believes no one that day was drinking, although she says there may have been beer available during a picnic lunch that preceded the incident. "There may be a beer or two in there," she said, "but remember not everyone in the party was shooting."

Jane Hamsher at the popular firedoglake blog included the "beer quote" in a post she wrote while it was still on the Web live, then later noted in an update that the article appeared to have been "scrubbed" (or removed) from the MSNBC Website. Hamsher also linked to an earlier post she wrote in which a similiar "scrubbing" occurred, but that time at the CBS News Website.

Other blogs and Websites that spotted the change include Democratic Underground, Thought Crimes, and Daily Kos.
