The integrity of MSNBC and Ed Schultz

Heard about this on our local talk radio station this morning -

Rick Perry is speaking to a campaign rally in Des Moines, Iowa. He’s talking about our soaring national debt. Here’s Perry’s quote:

“That big black cloud that hangs over America, that debt that is so monstrous.”

So Shultz takes that tape and edits out the “that debt that is so monstrous” part. Schultz plays just the words “That big black could that hangs over America” and then cuts off the rest. Schultz then says “That black could Perry is talking about is President Barack Obama” and goes on the typical rant about Perry’s racist remarks.

I wonder how often people take media at face value, and don't examine quotes in their context.
