SCANDAL-PLAGUED STEVE CAPUS OUT AS NBC NEWS PRESIDENT

For months now, Steve Capus has been the poster boy of the ongoing scandals and instances of editorial fraud that occurred under his watch as NBC News president. During his tenure, no fewer than the equivalent of five RatherGates happened; and after two , three, and four of these incidents, it became glaringly apparent that Capus was the problem. Today, action was finally taken. Capus is no longer with NBC News.

Whether Capus resigned or was forced out because someone on the NBC board finally decided his moral illiteracy needed to come to an end, doesn’t matter. What matters is that a management style that either encouraged this fraud or was helpless to stop it, is out.

It is worth noting, though, that just six-months ago, Capus signed a long-term deal with NBC News to remain as its president.

But the only real question is, why did it take this long?

The rap sheet against Capus isn’t troubling, surprising, or even disturbing -- it is breathtaking:

1. During last year's presidential election Andrea Mitchell was caught manufacturing a Romney gaffe where none existed.

2. During last year's GOP primary, Ed Schultz edited video of Texas Governor Rick Perry to make him look racist.

3. In April of last year, the "Today Show" was caught editing audio of a 9-1-1 call to make George Zimmerman look racist.

4. In August of 2009, Contessa Brewer sliced and diced a photograph so it wouldn't look like a black man attended a Tea Party carrying a firearm.  

5. Just this week, NBC News maliciously edited video of a town council meeting to make it look as though Second Amendment civil rights activists heckled a parent who lost his son in Newtown.

This isn’t bias; this is committing outright fraud in pursuit of a political agenda. And it is no coincidence that every single one of these incidents aided and abetted Obama directly or whatever his agenda was at the time.

Today, we finally got the answer as to how many deceptive edits before Capus is out -- too many.

If the history of the media, and specifically NBC News, is any indicator, the new boss is going to look an awful lot like the old boss. But let's not be completely cynical. While NBC's irresponsible and unrelenting left-wing bias will never end, we can at least have some hope that its irresponsible and unforgiving fraud will.

Wow - a liberal news executive is actually held accountable for fraudulent activity committed on his watch by his anchors and reporters??

Finally.

Oh...you will not get any responses from the left.  Whenever they are silence that means that they know that they got their Pee Pee spanked.  lol

Oh well. We post on theirs, they don't post on ours.

Primarily when it's a case of liberal hypocrisy. I guess because this is a regular military tactic of the Left, and does not surprise them.

 lololol......But all kidding aside.  It is a scary thing.  To have a government try to stop real news from getting out.  Kinda' reminds me of the old Mafia in NY that used to shut people up for "talking."
