MSNBC: a Clone of Old Pravda

MSNBC, in its style of taking stories out of context and manipulating videos and pictures have reached a new low. Discussing the man that brought a gun to one of Obama's townhall meetings, the commentators went on and on discussing the racial connotation behind bringing a (legal) gun to this meeting. Pundits in this network seemed to imply that this was a right winger nut who opposed the president because of Obama's race. The video showed the protester's face blurred. The unedited photo shows why. The man carrying a gun is black.

It might come as a surprise inside the beltway and upper Manhattan, but there are blacks who are conservatives and supporters of the Constitution.
