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.’”

Two COMPLETELY DIFFERENT backgrounds?!! What's up with that? I can't find anyone talking about that!
It appears some "reporters" are so desperate to run negative Romney news they don't verify any sources. MSNBC assumed the crowd was chanting Ryan they ran with the story and even put the caption "Ryan, Ryan" on the clip. I've heard the CSPAN clip and it seems most people are chanting Romney but a few may be saying Ryan. What isn't disputable are reports from people and reporters who were at the event who agreed it was a Romney chant. I don't think anyone at MSNBC spoke with any of those in attendance or they wouldn't have run with the story (what a concept, interview those who were there). Even the New York Times, who actually attended the event for crying out loud, reported it was a Romney chant!
Just got to love the truth telling on MSNBC and the sweet talking Ed I think he needs another rest period.
