Earlier today President Trump tweeted out a statement that NBC is fake news. The media, and Trump’s political opposition, immediately began circling the wagons to defend NBC.
However, as if on cue, moments after President Trump made the statement, NBC presented video of a Today Show segment interviewing a maintenance worker for Mandalay Bay with a jaw-droppingly false claim about Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock warning the worker. LOOK:
Notice the headline: “Las Vegas Shooter Stephen Paddock Warned Me ‘To Take Cover’: MGM Maintenance Man”.
NBC follows with the script to describe the interview:
Stephen Schuck, a building engineer at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, was on the 32nd floor when the Las Vegas mass shooting began. He tells TODAY that he had been called to check on an exit door and was walking down the hallway when “I started to hear shots ring out” and Stephen Paddock “popped out and yelled at me to take cover.” He adds “I am incredibly blessed that somehow I came out of there alive.” (link)
That claim is entirely false.
It never happened.
The NBC claim is entirely fake news.
No-where in the interview does the maintenance worker claim that Stephen Paddock warned him to take cover. See for yourself; the interview is below. The maintenance worker specifically states the hotel security guard Jesus “Jose” Campos was the one telling him to take cover. Watch:
NBC the LYING PEACOCK they were sued by GM back in 1993 for faking a explosion of a GM pick-up the whole thing was rigged and the reporter for DATELINE NBC lied about it all. Look it up on Youtube
pure horse shit. here is a guy spraying the crowd for 10 min, according to the fake news, now he takes time to remove himself from the window, look outside, tell this turd to take cover, runs back to the window and commences shooting. fake news in Katy Perry’s song “teenage dreams” penis as implied in the lyrics of the song. well, nbc is a penis. billy the whore dog loved the penis network. New Flask PENIS BROADCASTING COMPANY.
Well maybe someone dug up a recent voter registration card…..
He didnt want to kill he was a good boy, then along came the gun…he fell into a bad crowd over 40 murderous gang members all with nick names like AK, bump and the like.
NBC… lying for the sake of lying.
@kitt: I see it as a stupid mistake–they’ll correct it.
You think they’re trying to paint the shooter as a caring guy? lol
Still pushing that registered Dem meme?
MOS “TURD” how so?
@Richard Wheeler: How in the HELL do they make a mistake THAT BIG and base an entire segment on it? Sheesh, wake the f**k up.
@Deplorable Me: The video speaks for itself–didn’t they play it?
What reason to PUSH a warning from shooter rather than guard? Seriously.
@Richard Wheeler: I actually favor the Isis theory, it is rumored that they have the terrorist on film taking the oath, that is yet to be seen. the Dem is just a jab as they have done everything to stop the travel ban from terrorist strongholds.
They said he had no evidence of brain damage, interesting find since he blew his brains out.
Weird the security guy gets shot 6 minutes before he opens up on the crowd and the police took over an hour to blow the door. I expect that timeline will be altered as well.
I loved to hear that the Vet that stole a truck and went back twice to haul wounded to the hospital was gifted a brand new Ford F150.
The Owner of the stolen truck forgives him, Vet apologizes for all the blood.
@kitt: I’ve heard the ISIS theory though this old successful investor/gambler certainly doesn’t fit the mold. Think he just wanted to go out in a blaze of infamy.
LVPD NOT LOOKING GOOD– You are right—Vets and off duty cops saved lives.
@Richard Wheeler: Looks much worse for the hotel casino, they knew the floor and room of an active shooter. Could they have turned on the sprinkler system or done anything. I dont expect a hotel security guy to face the shooter down.
Many converts dont fit a profile he has traveled to the middle east.
@Richard Wheeler: What reason, indeed, except that they don’t really waste much time on accuracy.
Perhaps there is information about where Paddock’s political sympathies were and NBC is trying to lay the groundwork that he’s really a nice considerate guy?
I would speculate that since nothing of substance has leaked out, it’s not going to look good for the left. Just my suspicion, based on how these things usually go down.
As veterans who have been in battle would attest, the sounds of rounds passing by is soon understood to be the Language of Battle, whispering learnable phrases like, “Take Cover And Get Your Head Down.”
@Deplorable Me: ” NBC IS LAYING THE GROUND WORK THAT PADDOCK IS A NICE CONSIDERATE GUY.”
That is probably your most insane comment to date Bill. Have you totally lost it?
Thank God for Marine 4 star Generals Kelly and Mattis—keeping Americans safe from DT.s unstable leadership OH RAH.
Hey, give me a break. It’s tough trying to explain why the liberal media acts so stupidly.
