Glenn Beck plays edited Hillary Clinton audio to target MSNBC clip to bash second amendment advocates VIDEO

While appearing on Tuesday’s “On the Record,” with Greta Van Susteren, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton talks the Libya crisis and the new leadership in Egypt. Glenn Beck opened a segment on Wednesday’s radio show with a edited audio clip from the interview, insinuating that Clinton was bashing the Obama administration.

This was a ruse by Beck and company to target MSNBC for airing a manipulated clip.

MSNBC on Monday aired a misleading and incomplete clip of testimony given by the father of a Sandy Hook victim at a hearing before the Connecticut Legislature. The edited version of his remarks, aired on Martin Bashir’s show, to make it appear as if pro-gun advocates heckled the dad for no reason as he calmly argued against civilians owning semi-automatic rifles and high-capacity magazines.

MSNBC is now reportedly “reviewing” the “heckling” tape aired on the network Monday, The Washington Post reports.

“We’re reviewing the video in question,” an MSNBC source said.

Twitchy took issue with this assessment, writing:

MSNBC is propping up its story with a blatantly edited video. In fact, Heslin was not heckled. Gun rights advocates in the audience indeed voiced their support for the Second Amendment — after he asked why anyone would need “assault-style weapons or high-capacity clips.” You’d never know based on the MSNBC version, which completely cut out the footage of Heslin’s question.

 This is the unedited CLIP provided by Twitchy

 

Beck played the BOLD text below with the BLUE text edited out.

The Fox transcript is as follows:

VAN SUSTEREN: Is President Morsi, though — is he sort of with the program with us or not? Because he’s said some horrible things about Israelis two years ago, and there’s some things printed today from one of his senior aides about, that the Holocaust didn’t exist. And so there’s sort of very sort of suspicious things that he’s saying. And with all this turmoil, I’m wondering if his — you know, is he with us or against us?

CLINTON: Well, we were quite concerned about those statements, and the Egyptian presidency repudiated them and reaffirmed a commitment to the Israel-Egypt peace treaty, which is, of course, absolutely core to everything that we hope to see happen in the Middle East.

But you have to, I think, take a step back and look at the fact that the people now in power in these countries have never been in government, never had a chance to really learn how to run agencies or to make decisions.

So we don’t, certainly, condone or in any way approve of what a lot of these leaders are doing, or failing to do. But we also know how important it is that we try to avoid even more extreme elements, which are active across the region, taking control of territory, even threatening a regime, where the people are often American-educated, have some ongoing commitment to, you know, make tough decisions.

When I negotiated the ceasefire in Gaza with President Morsi, he was, you know, very involved. I’d obviously gone to Israel first. Then I went to Egypt, and we got it done. It’s still holding.

So we have to, you know, keep pushing forward, and yet call it like we see it when we think something is not appropriate, as we did with those statements.

VAN SUSTEREN: When you met him, did you have a sense that he was a good partner, someone that we can deal with, or do we have to, you know, sort of, you know, be very cautious with him?

CLINTON: I think he has a lot of the right intentions. You know, certainly in my long conversations with him, the many reports of meetings that I’ve received of other American officials, a recent congressional delegation, you do get the impression that he and the team around him are trying to deal with the economy that is in very bad shape in Egypt, the loss of foreign currency and investment and the tourism trade, the political reforms that are necessary.

But the — you know, the jury is out, Greta. You know, I’ve been around long enough to, so it’s not what somebody says, it’s what they do. And some of what he’s done, we have approved of and supported. And some of what he’s done, like abrogating a lot of power unto himself personally, reinstating emergency law provisions that had been a hallmark of the Mubarak regime, are very troubling.

And, you know, we have a balancing act to do, as do the Egyptian people as to how this is going to turn out.

 

Beck played audio that excluded the highlighted words, obviously changing the meaning. He was trying to dupe a caller, which was named Tim, who believed the audio. Playing the games with listeners, Beck bashed MSNBC over the edited clip.
