Openly Socialist NBC Propaganda Spin Piles on Santorum, Claims He Wants to ‘Reignite the Culture Wars in America’


On Sunday, NBC’s David Gregory spent much of Meet the Press blasting Ric2012-02-20-NBC-TDAY-CultureWars.jpgk Santorum for criticizing President Obama’s “phony theology” of liberalism. Earlier that morning, he appeared on the Today show to wonder if the GOP was “comfortable” with that line of criticism and warned: “Does it want to reignite culture wars in America over these kinds of issues?”

On Monday’s Today, fill-in co-host Savannah Guthrie followed Gregory’s lead as she lead the top of the show with this proclamation: “Culture wars. Rick Santorum is trying to explain his comment that appeared to question President Obama’s faith.” NBC did not dare accuse the Obama administration of trying to “reignite” a “culture war” over the ObamaCare contraception mandate controversy.

Correspondent Peter Alexander announced that Santorum was now “Facing a surge of scrutiny to go with his surging poll numbers,” and how “The Obama campaign blasted the remarks as well over the line.”

On Sunday’s Nightly News, correspondent Ron Mott couldn’t help but mock Santorum’s effort to push back at the supposed controversy surrounding his remarks: “After saying the President’s energy philosophy was based on a ‘phony theology’ Saturday, Rick Santorum had a real challenge, separating religion from theology, no less on a Sunday.”

Mott later observed: “Each of the Republican candidates has voiced disapproval of the President’s stance on energy and the environment. Only Santorum…has linked them to theology.”

On Saturday’s Nightly News, after playing a sound bite of Santorum’s comment, Mott read a response from Obama campaign press secretary Ben LaBolt: “The Obama re-election campaign quickly fired back, calling it, quote, ‘Just the latest low in a Republican campaign that has been fueled by distortions, ugliness and searing pessimism and negativity.’”

On Monday’s Today, Alexander included a sound bite of former Obama press secretary and current campaign advisor Robert Gibbs: “It’s just time to get rid of this mind set in our politics that if we disagree we have to question character and faith.”
