NBC reports demand for Holder resignation … but not why

posted at 1:11 pm on June 13, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Hey, NBC finally reported on Operation Fast & Furious! Of course, it took a high-profile call for the resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder to get them to do so, but at least they mentioned the scandal, in which hundreds of Mexicans and two US law-enforcement agents have lost their lives. That’s at least a good start.

Well and good, except for the fact that they didn’t actually link the resignation demand to the Fast & Furious scandal. NBC News last night cut the tape to make it look as though Senator John Cornyn demanded the resignation on the basis of the scandal over leaks from the White House on classified national-security operations, as our friends at Breitbart reported today:

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

In the eighteen months since the Operation Fast & Furious investigation began, Brian Williams and NBC Nightly News have never mentioned the Department of Justice’s gunwalking controversy. Every single time Mr. Holder has testified or a major development happened, NBC Nightly News ignored it. Tonight, in their first mention of the scandal–ever–NBC Nightly News and Brian Williams distorted Attorney General Eric Holder’s testimony.

While the majority of the testimony covered Operation Fast & Furious, NBC made it appear that the hearing was mainly over the national security leaks. The segment even made it appear that Senator John Cornyn called for Mr. Holder to resign over said leaks when, in fact, he expressed his greatest frustration with Mr. Holder over Fast & Furious.

That small bit at the end is all NBC viewers know of the deadly gunwalking that took place on Holder’s watch, at least from NBC’s reporting of it.  No mention of the deaths.  No mention of the anger from the Mexican government over the lack of communication and coordination of the operation.  No mention that the House Oversight Committee has subpoenaed 240,000 pages of material, and Holder’s DoJ has only surrendered 7,000 — many of them so heavily redacted as to be completely blacked-out pages.  Not even a mention of the misrepresentations made by senior DoJ officials, including Holder himself, as to the timing and depth of knowledge of this operation, intended to embarrass gun owners and provide a pretext for tougher gun-control laws.

Perhaps those who only get their news from NBC might be curious enough after this brief clip to see how well the network informs them of current events … and start switching channels as a result.

NPR is doing the same thing by burying the WH role in the leaks amidst all kind of speculation about intel agency leaks, and how sometimes leaks serve a useful purpose to help the public fully understand a story! The stench must be awful in the NPR newsroom.

And that right there is why they don’t cover it. The only way Fast & Furious becomes a bigger story is if these conspiracy theories are true.

Good piece on News Hour last night on how/why Holder’s been a target for partisan attacks since day one, etc.
As they noted, what has truly upset the right is his actions on social issues – DOMA, etc. And now he won’t help them reduce voter rolls to give Repubs an edge….the nerve!
Guess that’s why he seems so unrattled by all the bellicose theatrics from the Repubs.
He knows there is nothing…they have nothing…but that doesn’t make any of this less predictable.
Also, suddenly a concern for there being a bunch of weapons out there that could bring harm to law enforcement or citizens?
This could bring down their NRA scores…

No mention of the deaths. No mention of the anger from the Mexican government over the lack of communication and coordination of the operation.

I guess the deaths of those Mexicans is not worthy of acknowledgement by NBC. It’s just not politically expedient….protecting The One trumps even human life.

NBC News has a link to the video on their facebook page, this comment someone left about fast and furious was pretty good.

Gary Lee Whoa! NBC Nightly News mentioned something called ‘Fast and Furious’ tonight. Not sure I have ever seen Fast and Furious discussed on NBC Nightly News. Could you maybe take some time to educate your viewers to this Fast and Furious scandal NBC Nightly News hasn’t talked about? Rumor has it a US Border Agent has died and hundreds of Mexican citizens have been killed at the hands of these Fast and Furious guns. I have also read that the Mexican government was not involved in this operation to run guns across their border. IS this true? That would be a serious issue I would imagine. Why would we arm violent Mexican drug cartels without the knowledge of the Mexican government? Is the Mexican government upset hundreds of it’s citizens are dead as a result of this Fast and Furious operation? Does FAUXbama hate Mexicans?

So many questions unanswered and NBC Nightly News barely even mentions this Fast and Furious coverup. Is NBC Nightly News protecting FAUXbama?

Reality is coming for you imbeciles, and holy crap is he packing a big surprise, what will you do on Nov. 6th, when Obamacare has cut off your anti-psychotic medications and Obama looses in a landslide of Reagan proportions?

SWalker on June 13, 2012 at 2:04 PM

Wait a minute. Are you denying, spinning, that a gun found at the scene of Agent Brian Terry’s death was not a gun from Fast and Furious?

CherryBombsBigBrownBeaver on June 13, 2012 at 1:56 PM

Um..nope. Your point?

And, a dead Border Patrol Agent at the hands of Mexicans with US guns that were walked is not partisan.

Well try telling that to Isaa & co.
But I agree with you. Exploiting the agents death for nakedly partisan purposes is abhorrent.

Barack Obama wrong on U.S. guns in Mexico: FactCheck.org-updated

April 17, 2009 | 5:36pm

(UPDATE: On April 22 FactCheck.org withdrew its flat statement that the president was wrong, saying it could not prove that. An updated item appeared here.)

On his recently concluded first visit to Mexico as president, a week after telling Europeans that his country had been at times arrogant, President Barack Obama blamed his own country for providing 90% of Mexico’s recovered crime guns.

According to a report by the independent FactCheck.org this afternoon, that’s incorrect. By a, uh, long shot…

The truth and then the arm-twisted update, lol.

Not really funny… at all. The Occam’s razor reasoning behind Obama’s mistatements(lies)? Fast and Furious was meant to put U.S. guns into Mexico, more specifically into the hands of criminals in Mexico, to bolster cries to crack down on legal gun sales in the U.S. This isn’t over… not “by a, uh, long shot.”

You tell me? How many lives do you think it’s worth if you can get NBC news to ‘report’ the false narrative and twisted facts and partisan mumbo jumbo that you feel is just oh so obvious and provable?

I guess C-BS, which has been reporting for it for months, now qualifies as a partisan, anti-administration source fro news. I’m sure Les Moonves would be proud to hear that.

Fallon on June 13, 2012 at 2:07 PM

Don’t you have some provable facts here that support the wild-eyed theories?
No?
Well, ok then.

verbaluce on June 13, 2012 at 1:56 PM

Whether the “allegations” against Holder are true or not is not the topic of this thread is it?

It’s NBC’s refusal to report on an official Congressional investigation concerning the Attorney General of the United States that has been going on for over a year.

As I said above, when you can’t defend – divert.

I’ve got your number verbaluce. You know it and I know it and that drives you crazy, doesn’t it?

No need to answer, we all know you’d lie or change the subject anyway.

Your words, stupid. You are the one saying this is all partisan and that there are no provable facts. Well. There are and you’re right, democrats probably don’t give a damn about a dead Border Agent, but the republicans do and they want to find out who is responsible so they can be punished and the family can finally have answers to why their son was killed by his own government.
You are a joke. And we enjoy playing with you.

CNN News- We Distort, You’re Deceived.

You see, two can play that game.

DickCheneyIsAWarCriminal on June 13, 2012 at 1:36 PM

Thanks so much for sharing that. However, you had the letters confused, so I fixed your sentence. You see, two can play that game.

During their long and checkered history, the fine folks at CNN “News” have done the following:

1. Falsely reported that the US had dropped nerve gas on civilians in Laos.

2. Censored and overlooked Saddam Hussein’s atrocities against his own citizens in Iraq for over a decade, just so they could keep their precious Baghdad office open.

3. Had their CEO resign in disgrace after he falsely accused US soldiers of “murdering Iraqi journalists.”

4. Showed in primetime, without apologies, videos they happily accepted from America’s Enemies, showing the snipers’ eye view of their American targets just before the snipers pulled the trigger.

I’m sure you can provide plenty of credible evidence showing Faux News doing similar things. Please do so and entertain us.

(Starts stopwatch).

Oh, PS:

Lenin set the bar high, but to their credit, the American “press” has exceeded all his expectations.
