Exposed: A Spammer Fooled MSM & America with Edited NDAA Video

So this is rather embarrassing.

It turns out that the edited NDAA video of Carl Levin that was inaccurately cited in the mainstream media as proof that Obama wanted to detain US citizens was originally posted by a spammer. As we know, the President did not ask for language giving him the right to detain US citizens, he asked for the opposite. But that story wouldn’t get very many clicks for a spammer…..

Thanks to the hard work of several writers, we now know the truth behind the tin foil hat insanity trip of the edited Levin NDAA video that went viral. Congratulations, mainstream media – you got PWNED by a spammer.

Bloggers and journalists screw stuff up all the time - I don't know if its better or worse than things used to be, but it is much easier now to go right to the source, read the legislation yourself, and make up your own mind.
