MSNBC first aired the video on Wednesday, “prompting an embarrassed Joe Scarborough to mutter ‘Oh, sweet Jesus’ and a purse-lipped Mika Brzezinski to ask ‘What’s wrong with those people,’” The Blaze reported on Thursday.
Beckett Adams wrote that MSNBC’s Martin Bashir also used the clip, claiming that Ryan “overshadows” Romney.
According to Adams, if one listens closely to the video, “it’s obvious the audio in the clip has been adjusted,” which Adams says is not unusual.
“However, where the controversy comes in is in the caption on the screen quoting the audience as chanting ‘Ryan!’ Why is that controversial? Because people who attended the event say that’s not what happened, and that the MSNBC video grossly misrepresents what actually occurred,” he added.
On Thursday, a caller to Glenn Beck’s program confirmed that the version put out by MSNBC was incorrect.
“The crowd was yelling,” a caller identified as Sherry recounted. “The crowd was screaming ‘Romney! Romney!’ and Romney, being the gentleman [he is], we can‘t get in his head because he’s so stinking nice, he stopped us to add ‘Romney-Ryan.’”
