MSNBC apologizes for showing fake Palin photos

Good. Glad to see it. Even with an acknowledgement that the photos were false, they shouldn’t have been broadcast. (from TPM).

MSNBC anchor Dylan Ratigan apologized this morning for using fake photos of Sarah Palin last Friday in a segment about the former Alaska governor, and for not acknowledging their inauthenticity.

The pictures, which were widely circulated during last year’s presidential campaign, show Palin’s head photoshopped onto other women’s bodies. In one, “Palin” is wearing an American flag bikini and holding a rifle; in the other, the faux Palin is wearing a tight black miniskirt.

“I want to apologize to Gov. Palin and all our viewers. On Friday, in a very misguided attempt to have some fun in advance of Palin’s upcoming book, Going Rogue, our staff mistakenly used some clearly photoshopped images of Ms. Palin without any acknowledgment, and on behalf of the show I would like to say that this was completely unacceptable. We should have never used those photos in the first place,” Ratigan said today. “I apologize.”

It would do well for everybody to remember that no matter who you see on TV, or what stance they are taking, it’s very rare that you will find one that doesn’t have an axe to grind, an agenda to push, or is angling to cash in on a situation. Take it all with a grain of salt and don’t take any of them at face value.

Our tax dollars pay for Richardson’s therapy, and his medications, but Richardson and his party oppose healthcare reform to the degree they are proposing to waste billions of dollars in a colossaly stupid federal court fight to challenge any federal healthcare law on Tenth Amendment supremacy and other totally goofy grounds. Georgia has already been the subject of ridicule in several constitutional law journal articles, but *that* is hardly anything new. It wasn’t enough to waste millions of dollars getting their butts slammed in a losing water argument in federal court for Purdue and the GOPsters.

The topic of this blog was Palin, and ABC is going Faux Noise by chopping up the silly and superficial Barbara Walters interviews where you can bet their won’t be any Charlie Gibson “explain the Bush doctrine” (she couldn’t and still can’t) questions.

ABC has plans to plaster the Walters’ interviews on GMA, so-called World News, Nightline, 2020 and The View. Palin isn’t a serious contender for any office. She’s one of many GOP clown shows.

“One Muslim on the jury and that New York terrorist case is probably toast.”

A verdict of guilty does not usually require 100% agreement in the jury. In New York, imposing the death penalty DOES…but even if there’s not 100% agreement the defendent does not “walk” if found guilty: “New York: If the jury fails to reach unanimous agreement on the sentence, the court sentences the defendant to a minimum of 20 to 25 years to a maximum of life in prison (N.

Let’s be specific Dusty. Everyone who thinks they can match a doctors experience by surfing, should treat themselves by surfing.

I will say this though–if you’re willing to wade through some trash and a lot of advertisements and on line fly by night (some illegitimate) pharmaceutical websites, the medical profession (mostly med centers but increasingly some high quality publicatioins like NEJM and JAMA) makes detailed information available in a much higher quality package than most other professions do.

If you know where to look you can learn quite a lot. However, that doesn’t enable you to match what a doctor can do, and that was “doggone’s” firm contention.

Rachel Maddow alone makes anyone of Faux news look like an idiot. And they do that without her help. Stanford then a Rhodes Scholarship.

Faux airheads are lucky to graduate high school oor some crapass junior college and it shows–does it ever show. Vocabulary is constricted and they say the dumbest things possible.

Of course most of the Bookman Wingnuts lap it up.

Shawny, have you ever actually watched it?

Not real important, just wondering.

(I’ve sometimes wanted to do a little think piece here charting my own exposure level to right wing radio, newspapers, TV and interwebs over the years compared to not just my political opposites, but those on my side of the aisle who are quick to criticize FNC, Rush, et al.

But time won’t permit this today.)
