When a quote is taken out of context or cut short to make a candidate
Edited on Wed Nov-28-07 09:35 AM by hedgehog
look bad, is that mudslinging?


On edit - why do I forget to spell check when I know I can't type?

5. Even with them,
what's quoted shouldn't change the meaning of what was said.

"I am ... a crook"? Bad form, very bad form.

Still, it's SOP in many circles.

4. It's SOP if it's a Repuke smearing a Dem out of context ...
it's unfair and damn near illegal if the exact quote in context makes the Repuke look stupid and the media actually acknowledges it ...
