I got this email last week from MoveOn.org.
Interesting thing about it? There’s an odd…synchronicity in the chanting points that pop up in this email, the entire leftymedia’s coverage of the subject of last weeks bombshell videos of the Planned Parenthood ghouls selling baby parts.
Why, it’s almost as if the entire left, from Scott Pelley down to the lowliest, loneliest liberal blogger, is reading off the same script:
Dear MoveOn member,
Two weeks ago, a heavily edited, blatantly misleading video was released attacking Planned Parenthood.
Let’s stop right there.
The lefty chantingpointbots seem to think that “heavy editing” is unique to sting videos that gore their sacred cows.
News coverage generally shoots between 6 to 10 minutes of footage for every minute that appears on the air. With documentaries – think Michael Moore, who made hundreds of millions of dollars producing exactly the sort of footage that liberals love unless it’s James O’Keefe and the Center for Medical Progress – and “reality” shows it’s much, much much more; documentaries often shoot 30-60 minutes of footage for every minute of the final product.
Now be honest – do you think that those damning, eight minute videos of the Planned Parenthood ghouls talking about their Lamborghinis and the “crunchy” methods they use to kill prenatal children started out as 50-minute-to-eight-hour long conversations?
In the great scheme of video production, I’m going to suggest to you that these Planned Parenthood stings were edited vastly more lightly than most of what you see on television.
And this week, another deceiving, doctored video was released, continuing the smear campaign against the largest reproductive health care provider in America.
Did the ghouls actually say they were selling infant body parts? Then the “doctoring” was irrelevant.
It’s clear we’re facing a highly coordinated attack on reproductive rights.
No. You’re facing an attack on late-term abortion – the killing of “fetuses” that are in many cases perfectly viable.
Well, that’d be about time. There’s no reason only “progressives” can be “highly coordinated.”
