Dateline Just Does Not Know Us Rednecks
Since my report on Dateline being under fire, I noticed that Fox news and Michelle Malkin are picking up the story and also questioning the journalistic ethics of Dateline. Michelle Malkin really had a post about this before I did. And her commentary was excellent.
You can watch the video pictured on the above, on Michelle Malkin's site.
I learned of another occurrence of how Dateline doctored it report to present their point of view namely with exploding gas tanks that they reported faulty on GM trucks. It was back in 1993, when in their reports the failed to clue in the audience that they had rigged the gas tanks with explosives to demonstrate in video the exploding gas tanks. At no time did they clue in the public.
NASCAR is rightfully outraged by their tactics of sending in people who appear to be Muslim. NBC Dateline was just prodding for a response. They wanted an incident to report and they failed to find one. By the way reports are they are not giving up on this idea, they plan to go to more NASCAR events to instigate a negative response from the someone in the crowd.
Often I have kidded some Northerners about my redneck background. But Stone Phillips and the rest of his crew think that they can play a game with us dumb hicks. Well, we are not so dumb, and we know how to treat others with respect, that is really our calling card.
Perhaps Dateline really believes those red neck jokes they hear like:
You know you are a redneck when you think the last words to The Star Spangled Banner are “Gentlemen, start your engines.”
Well, Dateline you are sadly mistaken, and the joke is on you. No one bit at your Muslim ploy and NASCAR is going to start their engines, without even a sideways glance. By the way, like everywhere there are a lot of Muslims in the south. People in these parts, may not cotton to all their ideas; but we treat people with respect. A Southern tradition that we would hope would rub off on some of the Dateline crowd.
If you come around these parts Dateline and you really want to instigate us: Insult our Mommas. We will bend you up backwards, tie you in a knot, and roll you done the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Here is what Nascar had to say about this tawdry affair.
And it is interesting to read how Michelle Malkin puts Dateline in its place.
