Awful. Just Awful.
But not surprising. The corrupt media will do anything ANYTHING to assist failed President Barack Obama, the worst jobs president since the Great Depression, in his re-election campaign next year.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry won over some Republican voters at a backyard reception held Saturday at the Manchester home of Chuck Stephen and co-hosted by John Stephen, the former Republican gubernatorial nominee. (Shawne K. Wickham/Sunday News)

And, the state-run media is TERRIFIED of Governor Rick Perry from Texas.
Yesterday the AP reported this on Rick Perry’s campaign stop in New Hampshire:

Speaking to hundreds of Granite State voters at a private reception, the Texas governor was asked whether he supported a fence along the Mexican border.

“No, I don’t support a fence on the border,” he said. “The fact is, it’s 1,200 miles from Brownsville to El Paso. Two things: How long you think it would take to build that? And then if you build a 30-foot wall from El Paso to Brownsville, the 35-foot ladder business gets real good.”

The answer produced an angry shout from at least one audience member.

But, Weasel Zippers found this report from WOIA TV on Perry’s speech:

Speaking to hundreds of Granite State voters at a private reception, the Texas governor was asked whether he supported a fence along the Mexican border.

“No, I don’t support a fence on the border,” he said, while referring to the long border in Texas alone. “The fact is, it’s 1,200 miles from Brownsville to El Paso. Two things: How long you think it would take to build that? And then if you build a 30-foot wall from El Paso to Brownsville, the 35-foot ladder business gets real good.”

Instead, Perry said he supported “strategic fencing” and National Guard troops to prevent illegal immigration and violence from Mexican drug cartels.

The answer produced an angry shout from at least one audience member. And it exposed an ongoing rift with some conservative voters over Perry’s immigration record.

The AP deleleted the part of Perry’s speech that including using “strategic fencing” and National Guard troops on the border.

And, then there’s this.
There was no angry shout from the audience. At least that’s what one audience member said.
Via Instapundit:

A BLOG REPORT FROM RICK PERRY’S SPEECH IN NEW HAMPSHIRE: “I attended that event, stood about 15 feet from where he delivered those remarks and never heard an ‘angry shout’. Either the AP is making it up or it wasn’t much of a shout. Perhaps they can supply the audio.”

Unfortunately, there doesn’t appear to be any video of the reported incident.

** Once again - If you plan on attending one of these events PLEASE bring your camera with you.

  1. It’s Sarbanes-Oxley time for the media. Material falsehoods in political reporting are more damaging than in economic reporting, yet corporations involved in the manipulation of politics have no accountability, compared to the falsehoods in financial reporting resulting in a CEO and CFO (and others) facing years of hard Federal prison time.

    Until the media is held accountable, they will be exploited by elites interested in wielding their propaganda capacities.

  2. The AP won’t provide any audio of Perry’s “media manufactured” non existent angry shout. They got burned when they publicized racist Dem Congresscritter Andre Carson’s accustaion of the Tea Party people screaming the N word. It never happened of course. These media scum are just outright lying propagandists.

  3. AP is a lefty news wire, they are an american company. Reuters is an international news wire, they can’t afford to be lefty like AP hence tend to be more realible.
    People are recognizing more and more AP is a lefty when it comes to their stories.

    Check out who sits on their board of directors, and then go to open secrets to see who they’ve donated to, and it then makes sense.

  4. What’s your point? Strategic fencing. National Guard troops. Yeah yeah yeah. We’ve heard all of that nonsense before from Bush, McCain, Romney. It’s a bunch of hogwash nonsense.

    What about his support for the Dream Act and in-state tuition for illegals.

    This has always been our problem as conservatives. We go way out of our way to defend RINOs and fakes in our own party who we think … can win the general election and we end up with nominees like … Juan McCain. Then we whine and moan about them backstabbing us after the election. Have some nads people. Don’t defend the non-defensible and you won’t come out looking like idiots.

  5. Not to change the subject from Perry or illegal immigration, I just saw this a few minutes ago and thought of more biased inaccurate legacy media reporting:

    Obama’s Jobs Malaise
    http://powerwall.msnbc.msn.com/politics/obamas-jobs-malaise-1700384.story

    Check it out for yourself and see how these guys pass off bias for fact as they manage to defend Obama and bash Republicans and Tea Party movement folks all in one totally biased article.

  6. Its all they have left. Their guys, Odumbass and Huntsman are both losers. They have to try to do anything to get them to look good. I think some troops shooting some lead would help the illegal crossing problem very rapidly. Throw in a few airstrikes against the cartels for some added show.

  7. PERRY=RINO=BUSH=MCCAIN=PERRY, no Perry for me, he is another establishment republican for me.

  8. One angry shout? Have they counted the angry shouts against what Obama is saying and doing? Bet it’s more than one.

  9. I have not started backing any horse in this primary race, nor will I until the field is settled and I know a whole lot more about all of them. But seeing AP willfully distorting this story tells me that the lefties fear Rick Perry, and that is a definite plus in his column.

  10. well, I’m voting for Perry, I heard his interview on Levin, he’s a strong 10th amendent candidate, and I like that he fights back very hard. And I see as having the best chance to kick out Barry. If a toilet roll runs and wins the GOP nomination, I’ll be campaigning and voting for that toilet roll. I’m always very surprised to hear when repubs say they’re going to stay home. 6 million Bush supporters stayed home in 2008, that’s how Barry got it, and there were many repub who voted for this jerk.
    If its Perry, Romney, whoever, they’ve got my vote, and I’m not socially conservative, but I’m a stanch very staunch fiscal limited govt conservative. This country will not survive another Barry term. Its not just the economy, supreme ct justices, there’s so much at stake.

  11. He was on Mark Levin the other night and explained his position on this. If there are ways to secure the border without the fence that will be effective, I’m alright with it.

  12. Thanks Jim–I don’t think that all this misreporting is having the desired effect. The same media didn’t just sell Obama, they forced him down our throats 24/7 and now that anyone with half a brain can see that he is the worst President in history they still stand by him instead of delivering the truth.

    I will vote for any Republican who gets the nomination but Rick Perry is of, by and for the American people. Rush says the media will always tell you who they fear and they must be scared to death of Gov. Perry. Nary a word is said about Romney.

  13. i don’t like perrry but why is anybody really surprised by this the purpose of american tass is to advance the political agenda not to inform.

  14. I call BS on Mr. Hoft !!! He posts one story then another !!! I bet both of the stories are half truths !!!

  15. You may wish to gloss over Perry’s position on illegal immigration but, the fact of the matter is HE IS SOFT ON ILLEGALS. This should concern real conservatives.

  16. Thanks for the link Jim. I wish I knew who the AP reporter was. I saw some guy walking around in a NY Times tee shirt and found it odd that he would wear that to this rally as he had no other reporting equipment.

    The lesson is to never ever ever trust the moonbat media.

  17. Oops = sorry about that name, it was a joke that I didn’t notice until after I posted.

  18. The term “Yellow Dog Democrats Journalists” comes to mind.

    Already fighting to keep their ‘hallowed’ place in the forefront of American thought (not to mention their super-sized paychecks to go with their super-sized egos), the Dying Media will do anything, including fabricating stories out of whole Marxist/Alyinskyist cloth. As seen from the overhyped Irene coverage, Dying Media need a ‘boogeyman’ to sell their swill. Romney isn’t sufficiently conservative, Palin has taken too long and has been too teasing to be a proper target and Bachman just can’t get the traction they need to sell swill.

    Rick Perry however? That’s their ticket to continued paychecks.

  19. The “angry shout” was from the AP reporter at the event.

  20. Somebody did catch part of it on an MP3 player…just a few words, though. If anyone has more, send it to Jim.

    Angry shout
