Video: Did Rachel Maddow Purposefully Mislead Viewers On 'Meet The Press'?

Yeah, the question is more rhetorical than anything.

Watch expose how NBC News' Rachel Maddow cherry-picks facts to make the S & P downgrade appear to be a partisan slap at Republicans. She also theatrically reads from a document on the air making it appear as though she is reading directly from S & P's statement.

This is a device Maddow uses often on her show. She takes a dramatic pause and reads from a paper on her desk which subliminally suggests to the viewer that what she is saying has some extra level of validity.
