NBC was caught editing footage of Rudy Giuliani to make it sound like he was disagreeing with Trump, when in reality he was not. This type of thing should be very illegal.
“Amid the chaos, President Trump is defending his actions. The statement reading, ‘To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting. This is not about religion – this is about terror and keeping our country safe.’ But Trump’s argument is seemingly contradicted by one of his advisors. Rudy Giuliani telling Fox News Trump consulted him and others,” reported NBC.
They showed a brief clip of Giuliani saying “when he first announced it, he said Muslim ban. He called me up, he said put a commission together, show me the right way to do it legally.” However, this is just a fraction of the whole story. If you watch the whole clip Giuliani specifically says that this is not a religious ban.
“When he first announced it, he said Muslim ban. He called me up, he said put a commission together, show me the right way to do it legally. I put a commission together and what we did was we focused on, instead of religion, danger. The areas of the world that create danger for us, which is a factual basis, not a religious basis. Perfectly legal, perfectly sensible, and that’s what the ban is based on. It’s not based on religion,” Giuliani actually said.
Do you think that NBC was being purposefully deceptive?
