Neil Heslin, Father Of Newtown Victim, Heckled By Pro-Gun Activists(VIDEO, PHOTOS)

screams the Huffington Post

Neil Heslin, the father of a 6-year-old boy who was slain in the Sandy Hook massacre in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14, stoically faced down pro-gun activists last night.

More than 1,000 people attended a hearing before the Gun Violence Prevention Working Group at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford on Monday to share their views on gun control, USA Today reported. Among them was Heslin, who held a large framed picture of himself and his son Jesse as he urged officials to consider strengthening gun laws in Connecticut.

But as he gave his emotional testimony, pleading with lawmakers to improve mental health options and to ban assault weapons like the one Adam Lanza used to murder his child and 25 other people, his speech was interrupted by dozens of audience members, The Connecticut Post reported.

“I still can’t see why any civilian, anybody in this room in fact, needs weapons of that sort. You’re not going to use them for hunting, even for home protection,” Heslin said.

Pro-gun activists responded by calling out: “Second Amendment!”

There’s just one problem. It didn’t happen

He wasn’t heckled. He asked the question and demanded an answer. There was complete silence. And only then, when he said that not one person could answer it — rather than remaining quiet out of respect for his feelings — did a few people answer it. You might not like their answer if you don’t like the Second Amendment, but that answer wasn’t unprompted. They were not heckling him.

Mr. Heslin has every right to his grief and anger, and he has every right to ask that question. And those other people have every right to answer it, when an answer is demanded of them. None of them are well served by MSNBC deceptively editing the video to create an event that didn’t happen. It serves nothing but NBC’s own political ends. It’s absolutely disgusting.

Ed Driscoll
recaps the history of creativity at NBC/MSNBC

This is at least the fifth time in recent years that NBC or MSNBC has gotten caught cooking the books, John Nolte writes at Big Journalism:

1. During last year’s presidential election Andrea Mitchell was caught manufacturing a Romney gaffe where none existed.

2. During last year’s GOP primary, Ed Schultz edited video of Texas Governor Rick Perry to make him look racist.

3. In April of last year, the “Today Show” was caught editing audio of a 9-1-1 call to make George Zimmerman look racist.

4. In August of 2009, Contessa Brewer sliced and diced a photograph so it wouldn’t look like a black man attended a Tea Party carrying a firearm.

And just today, NBC was caught in yet another malicious edit, this time to make Second Amendment advocates look as though they did something as heinous as heckling the heartsick father of a child who lost his six-year-old son in the Sandy Hook massacre. You can watch the full video and NBC’s science fiction adaptation side-by-side here.

All of this has happened under the watch of Steve Capus (pictured above), who’s not only the president of NBC News, but also the “the arbiter of issues involving ethics, style, standards, safety and other matters that affect the Division’s journalistic bearing.”

It’s just another day for the Obama State Media

    I really feel for this loving father, Neil Heslin, who testified before the Gun Violence Prevention Working Group at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford.
    Maybe people knew the rules and maybe they didn’t.
    But it was Mr. Heslin who insisted on an answer IF ANYONE could give one.
    Only then did a few answer….correctly.
    Instead of threatening to clear out the audience for answering when asked that question, the person in charge might have made it clearer to Mr. Heslin that he is NOT to engage that audience in conversation.
    The person in charge let his meeting get away from him.
    Where are our Paliamentarians now that Tip O’Neill is gone?

    You don’t think that whole thing was a set up to make 2nd Amendment advocates look bad? Because I believe these leftists really are just that manipulative.

    @Krysti: Examples abound — beyond the recent examples given in this article — do not forget the famous “exploding Pinto” gas tank and the Dannie boy rather’s Boosch fraud

    The NYTimes just got caught posting staged photographs …. again.

    I recall a couple years back when the NYTimes published photos of men dead or dying under rubble in the Middle East….only to have photos of those same ”dead” men up and walking to get into and out of their poses!
    Photographer Tyler Hicks explained that he had given the correct caption description to the New York Times, and it was they who screwed it up — something they admitted.
    His actual explanation, here, is almost as silly as the one the Times ran.
    A compilation of many photos taken that day shows the unharmed man walking around, with hat on and off, looking for a perfect spot to make a political statement in a phony photo.

    this is criminal, they are more dangerous than any criminal in prison,
    because their death wish for the gun owners is the same,
    yes they need to all lose their license for fooling the people with lies,
    lies that incite the obamists to such hate and calling for represals on the gun owners and the business who supply it, those lying MEDIAS are guilty as hell on any crime to happen related to their criminal actions and the people have just enough of it them crossing their lines with constant lies,
