Chris Hayes apologizes after being caught in ‘inexcusable’ lie; Do citizens buy it?!/NObamaGirl/status/344861017936908288
Facts matter, no matter how inconvenient they may be. The clowns at MSNBC have yet to learn that valuable lesson.

Last night on “All In,” host Chris Hayes marked the 50th anniversary of Alabama Governor George Wallace speaking out against racial integration. And in the video clip accompanying Hayes’ story, MSNBC was very careful to remind viewers that Wallace was a Republican:

Here’s the thing, though: despite the Left’s dishonest but cherished contention that the GOP is the party of racists, Wallace was a Democrat. MSNBC flunkies may like to believe that pushing a false narrative will make the ugly truth go away, but that’s not how it works. And Hayes was rightly called out for presiding over such an egregious lie:!/Shaerona/status/344869368833904641!/theleftfails/status/344880400323203072
This afternoon, Hayes tweeted an apology:!/chrislhayes/status/344874968825344000
But what if he had caught it?!/Repunklican/status/344878008773013504
We wouldn’t be surprised. After all:!/jtLOL/status/344877774693097472!/matthewhurtt/status/344877203634413569
Bingo. And MSNBC has little interest in allowing facts to get in the way of that narrative.

If there’s a silver lining for Chris, it’s that he doesn’t have to worry about being embarrassed in front of too many people:!/massSNAFU/status/344883329348288513!/OrwellForce/status/344878999585058816!/MarkLenz15/status/344887269666222080
But there can’t be a silver lining without a dark cloud, and many of those who did witness the jackassery weren’t interested in giving Hayes the benefit of the doubt:!/GregorioFQ/status/344883331168616448!/mcassill/status/344877338003120129
Hayes did earn praise from some people for apologizing:!/TheH2/status/344878157687578624
But was it enough? Is he sorry for the lie, or sorry that he got caught? We’re not satisfied with his apology just yet:!/TheRiler/status/344876191318167552
He’s got a long way to go before we’re willing to consider taking his sincerity at face value.!/AnthonyBialy/status/344898176463015936
Hayes eventually apologized for that, too— after being called out for his callousness. Few people bought that apology, either.

In the meantime, we’re guessing this won’t be the last time MSNBC pulls such a stupid stunt. After all, lying is kinda their forté:!/blakef11/status/344876357265813504
