MRC Repeats Malicious Misquote of Sen. Lautenberg
Topic: Media Research Center

An Aug. 18 MRCTV post carries the headline "Sen Lautenberg: ‘We Got to Eliminate the Rich,'" linking to a post and continuing: "Senior moment, or Freudian slip? Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) lets his class warfare rhetoric get the best of him at a press conference in Belmar, NJ."

In fact, that's not what Lautenberg said at all; he said, during a discussion of Warren Buffett's statement that taxes should be raised on the wealthy, that "we've got to eliminate the waste." has since added a update stating, "Some of our readers with extra-keen hearing think they hear the Senator say 'We got to eliminate the WASTE.'" But Breitbart then cops out by adding, "We'll let you be the judge," even though it's quite clear to people with normal hearing that Lautenberg said "waste."

Will the MRC update or correct its post? We shall see.
