Stuart Varney on MSNBC Editing Paul Ryan's Comments on President Obama: 'They Are Misleading America Quite Deliberately'
Sean Hannity exposed what he says is “deceptive editing” by MSNBC of Rep. Paul Ryan talking about how the Obama administration leaked its immigration plan over the weekend. They cut down Ryan’s interview with ABC’s ‘This Week’ and played two clips back-to-back of him saying, “Leaking this out does set things in the wrong direction,” and “This particular move -- very counterproductive.”
Hannity noted that MSNBC left out
the substantive policy disagreements behind Ryan’s opposition to the White House’s plan. Ryan stated in part, “I did think that his words were measured and productive in the State of the Union, but putting this, leaking this out does set things in the wrong direction. Look, the question that we always have to ask ourselves, particularly with this White House, is the president looking for a partisan advantage or is he looking for a bipartisan law.”
Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney reacted on Hannity, saying, “They sat around and figured out how to put this piece of tape next to that piece of tape to make it sound like this and not like that. […] They are misleading America quite deliberately. They’re not only cheerleading for the president, they’re actually leading almost a lie to the American people.”
