Accuracy in Media

MSNBC apparently is a little gun shy when it comes to gun references on the network.

Mediaite points out that on Lawrence O’Donnell’s The Last Word a short Mythbuster’s intro showing fish being shot in a barrel was excised from the online version of the segment.

What’s odd as Mediaite points out is that the segment remained intact on the 11 p.m. rerun while in the intro-less online version O’Donnell can he heard repeating the shooting fish in a barrel idiom over and over.

Maybe as Mediaite points out someone thought the imagery of shooting fish was too violent for online viewers, or maybe it was just another case of political correctness, but I’m placing my bets that the online editor is a member of PETA trying to save some fish, I mean “sea kittens”  from an ignominious death.
