At TalkLeft, Jeralyn Merritt analyzes the persistence of the mis-edited “he looks black” audio at NBC, and finds that the rot runs deeper than has previously been reported:
So the blatant, racially charged distortion of George Zimmerman’s 911 call started on NBC 6 Miami on March 19, appearing in two articles by three different writers. It was repeated on March 20 in an article attributed to one of the three writers. The articles have been updated, but the quotes remain. The mis-quote aired on the Today Show on March 22 during a live segment with reporter Lilia Luciano, and again on March 27 with reporter Ron Allen.
For NBC and MSNBC to characterize the error as a single episode caused by a producer’s time constraints in getting a video clip ready for live morning television, which just unfortunately happened to be missed by layers of editorial control, is not very convincing.
***Obama administration diverts $500 million to the IRS to enforce Obamacare. If that doesn't chill you to the bone, nothing will. IRS agents are poised and ready to make sure you do as the government tells you regarding health care, whether you like it or not. Sieg Heil!
***13-year-old drives school bus to safety after driver passes out. Way to go, kid!
A middle school student is being credited with saving a school bus full of kids after he drove the bus to safety after the driver passed out behind the wheel.
13-year-old Jeremy Wuitschick told Q13 Fox he was riding the bus to school Monday morning when he noticed something was wrong with the driver.
"He starts acting all funny," he said. "His eyes are bulging and he is twitching in his chair."
Surveillance video shows Jeremy's split-second reaction. The teen raced out of his seat and grabbed the wheel as the bus veered towards the sidewalk. He was then able to bring the bus to a stop and take the keys out of the ignition.
Oh, but THAT'S not racist.
***Three things Bubba Watson and Tim Tebow have in common. Great to see sports figures who aren't afraid to speak their faith.
- Their priorities are in order: Both athletes have repeatedly stated their careers are not the most important thing in their lives. God comes first, followed by family – and then their job.
- They’re not afraid to evangelize: Watson and Tebow have both been criticized for being so bold and open about their love of Jesus. But equally important, they refuse to fire back at their detractors. It’s one thing to be outspoken – it’s another thing to do it with gentleness and grace.
- They publicly lift up and praise their mothers: Did you see Bubba Watson hugging his mom last evening as tears rolled down his face? He gave her the credit for his success. Tim Tebow has likewise affirmed his mother’s positive influence, from homeschooling him to helping him develop his character and cultivate a deep love of the Lord.
***Olbermann's nastiness spotlights Democrats' hypocrisy. Well, to be fair, it's not that hard to spotlight Democrat hypocrisy. It's everywhere.
Democrats profess to be for uplifting the downtrodden. But as Current TV’s firing of left-leaning Keith Olbermann demonstrates, when it comes to treating the less fortunate with respect, Democrats may be the worst offenders.
Among the complaints by Al Gore’s Current TV was that the anchor went through eight different car pick-up services, often complaining that the drivers “smelled” or that they “talked to him.”
