Dezinformatsia

Gratuitous Christian bashing:

“It’s looking more and more like [Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan] was just, sort of, a religious nut. And you know Islam doesn’t have a majority — or the Christian religion has its full, you know, full helping of nuts too.” –CBS’s Bob Schieffer

What was the tragedy again?

“It really is tragic that he was a Muslim.” –NPR’s Nina Totenberg

“I cringe that he’s a Muslim. I mean, because it inflames all the fears. I think he’s probably just a nut case. But with that label attached to him, it will get the right wing going and it just — I mean these things are tragic, but that makes it much worse.” –Newsweek’s Evan Thomas

Non Compos Mentis:

“[Hasan] makes a phone call or whatever, according to Reuters right now. Apparently he tried to contact al-Qa’ida. Is that the point at which you say, ‘This guy is dangerous?’ That’s not a crime to call up al-Qa’ida, is it? Is it? I mean, where do you stop the guy?” –MSNBC’s Chris Matthews

PC virus:

“We cannot call him the shooter until we have a trial. That’s the way we work here, you know, that’s how it works in America.” –Chris Matthews

Commie apologist:

“Many who were raised in the East are still adjusting to the harsh economic realities, especially during this economic downturn.” –NBC’s Tom Brokaw, taking the opportunity of the anniversary Berlin Wall’s demise to trash capitalism

Because America totally didn’t have anything to do with it:

“I know, I think it may be a little egocentric but I think most Americans look at that event and they think of it as an American victory.” –NBC’s Matt Lauer

Fact checking gone wrong:

“Nnn, Constitution doesn’t have a Preamble. Not. Nope. Stop it. That would be the Declaration of Independence. Ooh.” –MSNBC host Rachel Maddow responding to House Minority Leader John Boehner, who actually did quote the preamble to the Declaration

Sometimes the get it right:

The U.S. government is making a costly and open-ended commitment. Let’s not pretend that it isn’t a big deal, or that it will be self-financing, or that it will work out exactly as planned. It won’t. What is really unfolding, I suspect, is the scenario that many conservatives feared. The Obama Administration … is creating a new entitlement program, which, once established, will be virtually impossible to rescind.” –New Yorker columnist John Cassidy
