No stone left unturned in their quest to find all the news that's fit to use in their propaganda campaign against the Right. Journalism my arse.
The report was apparently based on a “satirical post” published on the Daily Kos (http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/04/02/1079238/-Microsoft-Apple-unite-to-demand-National-Organization-for-Marriage-launch-boycott) on Monday by Scott Wooledge. The post was later republished (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/scott-wooledge/microsoft-apple-unite-to-_b_1394821.html?ref=comedy) by The Huffington Post’s comedy section and was presented as satire.

“NOTE: This piece is satirical. All quotations are fabrications for the purpose of satire,” the piece read.

This isn’t the first time Roberts and the show’s staff have fallen victim to less-than-factual information put out in the liberal blogosphere. Last December, Roberts relied on a blog post (http://www.americablog.com/2011/12/romney-adopts-kkk-slogan-keep-america.html) from the “progressive site” Americablog to tie a campaign ad (http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2011/12/14/msnbc_likens_romney_to_the_kkk_with_his_keep_america_american_slogan.html) for former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney to the Ku Klux Klan. Roberts later apologized (http://www.theblaze.com/stories/msnbc-apologizes-for-reporting-faulty-romney-klan-connection/) for the error.

What will those buffoons do next?:rofl:


If they can't get the simple stuff correct, then how can we believe them on the more complicated matters like the Middle East, Global Warming and the Economy?

Probably re-hire the "$10 million dollar chandelier" Keith Olbermann.
