Drudge and GOP attack machine caught again

Posted By on Thu, Sep 20, 2012 at 11:26 AM

It probably won't shock you to learn that the Drudge Report can be fed craftily edited bullshit and put it out for the Republican Party to counter damaging things like the Mitt Romney 47 percenter speech. It probably won't shock you to learn that as soon as Drudge spews, the Republican Party of Arkansas and other parts of the GOP organ can reliably be counted on to respew the dishonestly edited bullshit on Twitter and elsewhere

Happened again this week with the infamous 14-year-old 'redistribution' audio.

Politico explains. NBC bothered to get the entire videotape, where the full context presents a much different story than Drudge/GOP spin. (PS — As others have noted, Romney is a redistributionist at heart, too. Unless he's ready to disavow the graduated income tax, Social Security and Medicare.)
