HuffPo Ran Doctored John Gibson Clip

From a thing called TVNewser:

FNC’s John Gibson Responds to Doctored Clip

Friday, Feb 20

Yesterday we posted a Fox News clip involving several references to a "bright blue scrotum." The nature of our story was how anchors Julie Banderas and Harris Faulkner got through the story. What we didn’t realize at the time is that the very end of the clip includes an exchange with Trace Gallagher and John Gibson. And that portion was doctored to put words in John Gibson’s mouth that he did not say.

The Huffington Post, which picked up the clip from us got hundreds of comments on their version of the story which focused on that part of the clip.

HuffPo has issued a full correction:

The video was doctored to include Trace Gallagher’s voice saying, "bright blue scrotum" where Gibson played Holder’s ‘nation of cowards’ remark. The Huffington Post does not know the source of the video’s doctoring — it was picked up off TVNewser…The Huffington Post regrets the error.

We don’t know either. It came from YouTube user "john13210" and arrived in the anonymous tip box. We regret the error as well. The clip has since been removed from YouTube.

Gibson tells TVNewser, "The Huffington Post, in its zeal to slime me, went over the line and posted a phony, fabricated quote, attributed it to me, and which actually constitutes a lie, and a slander. The Huffington Post plays fast and loose on a regular basis, but this time it was caught in an out and out fabricated falsehood."

Mind you, our one party media regularly holds up Zsa Zsa Huffington’s site as a shining example of what journalism can and should be.

But of course, as Mr. Gibson notes, this is just another example of the HuffPo posting something that is untrue.

Of course they wouldn’t even think to question anything that shows the dreaded right wingers at Fox News in a bad light.

It just has to be true, no matter how preposterous.

    When you have a good double-standard, you stick with it.

    Reminiscent of the mrs. o-blah-blah’s “proud of my country” slip up. That was doctored up to include a “really proud” after the reaction was so huge to her actual comments. The View couldn’t play enough of the doctored version ….

    “Tell the lie often and loud enough .. they’ll start to believe it” …. NOT!!!

    This incident reminds me of the phony Army Ranger Jesse Macbeth and the IVAW video that made the rounds a few years ago. The left is soooo easy to fool. Just tell them what they want to believe. It’s ironic that the libs are so ready to trash and deny anything coming from the Right.

    We need to demand an apology from Holden. Why doesn’t ollah Obama apologize for him and says it’s his fault.

    I dare Gitanjali Gutierrez to even slide the food tray into the cells where the worst terrorists are isolated, yet do her attorney job in normal fashion and meet in the same room with these terrorist. Recent documentary, said they never know what will start a riot, but a commerical on tv for dish soap, a fully clothed woman showing her hands led to an upheavel. She knows these terrorists are being held because they are the worst terrorists. All those terrorists have mental problems. duh.
