RAWSTORY GIVES DU PROPS IN FINDING MISSING BEER QUOTE FROM MSNBC!
Edited on Wed Feb-15-06 09:01 AM by stop the bleeding
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:


http://rawstory.com/news/2005/Beer_quote_pulled_from_MS...

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.

~snip~

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.


Big props to HsiKang :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause:

1. That is very cool. May I ask a question for myself?
I am not tech savvy so how would I save something like that if I came across it? Thanks.

2. I believe that you right-click and choose 'Save Page As...'
If you're using IE, I believe it is 'Save Target As...'

6. well if you just want a screenshot
you hit the key "print screen", usually found at the top row of keys on your keyboard, toward the right. there would also be next to it (most likely) "scroll lock" and "pause/break"

Once you hit "print screen", it will copy your entire desktop at that time. then open paint or any image program and "paste". then save. that's all! unless you want to host it online, then just upload it to a host.

5. Hey, I started a beer thread once and found out that when it comes to
beer, DUers are very educated on the subject and well focused. No attention deficit disorder with that topic.

9. We need "Scrubbed News Screenshot" sections. This isn't the first time
News has been scrubbed for the benefit of Bush-Cheney.

15. Secret Service SAID it was accident.... They are in charge



Sally May, Whittington's daughter, said Tuesday that she is concerned about her father's change in condition, but remains "very confident with this hospital."

May said she still regarded the shooting as an accident.

"Just because of Cheney's profile, it's getting all this attention," she said. "It does not change anything. It was just an accident.

"snip

Kenedy County sheriff's investigators ruled Monday that the shooting was an accident.

And Ramiro Medellin, a county constable who also works at the ranch, said he had no doubts it was an accident. But it did not surprise him that Salinas did not question anyone the evening of the shooting.

*******Secret Service agents told the sheriff that it was an accident, and he trusted their word.********




"This is the federal government, and they run the show," Medellin said Tuesday. "They say who comes and goes. They are in charge. I know from experience."

A spokesman for the Secret Service declined to comment about the sheriff's investigation. But he said federal agents acted properly by informing the sheriff of the shooting within an hour of its occurrence.

"It was at the sheriff's request that somebody come out the following morning, which we facilitated and passed through to the vice president's office," said Eric Zahren, a spokesman for the Secret Service.

And Cheney spokeswoman Jennifer Mayfield said "the vice president was available immediately after the incident for questioning."

"Our**** Secret Service (detail) reached out to the sheriff's office," she said. "The sheriff's office suggested 10 a.m. (Sunday). The vice president wanted to do it sooner and the meeting happened at 8 a.m. He was always available for questioning,"

Texas Parks and Wildlife game wardens also have responsibility for investigating hunting accidents in Texas. A report by game warden Jason Duke does not indicate that he got a statement from the vice president.

Tom Harvey, a spokesman for Parks and Wildlife, said Duke did his duty.

"The facts regarding the hunting accident were gathered and reported," Harvey said.

But Ronald R. Scott, a retired Massachusetts state trooper who now consults in ballistics cases, said the investigators erred by not going to the ranch on Saturday night. Investigators probably lost their chance to recreate the scene of the shooting, he said.

"I think that is improper to be quite honest," Scott said. "Even if there was no wrongdoing, it is still improper not to do it."
Dallas Morning News correspondents Colleen McCain Nelson in Dallas, Pete Slover in Austin and Todd J. Gillman in Washington contributed to this report.
