MSNBC Slanders Obama With Bin Laden Graphic

MSNBC has once again started smearing Barack Obama by "unintentionally" confusing his name with Osama bin Laden. I put the word "unintentionally" in quotes because this latest smear was in the form of a well executed graphic that appeared over the shoulder of Chris Mathews shoulder while talking about the alleged controversy of plagiarized a speech by Obama. This is old news and was cleared up back in 2007, but the Clinton camp has resurrected it again as they see their lead trailing away.

The graphic was a picture of Osama bin Laden with the title "Word Over Words" below it. Hardly a mistake! Though Mathews apologized for the gaff, it is obvious it was intended to create that imprint of an association between Barack Obama and the Muslim radical.

MSNBC has long had a conservative leaning, but now they are aligning themselves with the yellow journalism of Fox News. At least I now know who to trust and who is willing to lie in the interest of their political agenda.
