Reprehensible even by MSNBC standards

An MSNBC anchor used a cropped picture of a man (legally) carrying a weapon near an Arizona health care rally to raise the issue of "racial tensions" and "white people showing up with guns." What was cropped out of the picture was the man's head and lower arms...which would have shown viewers that the man was black.

NewsBusters has the story here:

Although it will lead to nothing, Americans for Limited Government is calling for the firing of those involved with the broadcast.
