I’ve got dollars to donuts that Team Clinton had their hand in this one. Quite honestly, I don’t trust the guy anyway. The Muslims have stated time and time again that they plan on destroying the U.S. from the inside out. What better way to start than at the highest level – through the President of the United States, one of their own!
“This mistake was inexcusable,” MSNBC spokesman Jeremy Gaines said.
It happened during the opening of “Hardball” Monday evening. Matthews was previewing a story on the controversy over Obama’s use of another politician’s words, and a picture of bin Laden briefly flashed on the screen beside him with the headline “Words About Words.”
The Obama campaign immediately called NBC to complain, and Matthews apologized on the air a few minutes later. When “Hardball” was rerun later that night, a picture of Obama replaced the picture of the terrorist leader.
The mistake was made by someone in the network’s graphics department whom MSNBC would not identify. The network did not explain exactly how the mistake was made nor detail the punishment for the employee.
Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor noted the apology and said the campaign had no other comment.
It’s hardly the first time the presidential candidate and terrorist leader have been confused in the media. CNN apologized last year for promoting a story on the search for bin Laden with the headline, “Where’s Obama?”
