In the aftermath of Martin Bashir's hoax, NBC promised to review the controversy and determine if one of its key employees had, yet again, deliberately falsified audio or video to make for a splashy, sensationalistic story for its partisan liberal audience.
Well, they did. Surprise-- NBC gave themselves a Gold Star of Accuracy. They claimed the only question was one of semantics, whether one could call the answer "The Second Amendment" an incidence of heckling.
They claim that different people could decide this matter differently -- even though at this point the only two people I know of who claim the situation can be termed "heckling" are 1, NBC host Martin Bashir, who perpetrated the hoax, and 2, NBC host Lawrence O'Donnell, a decrepit old man who fancies himself a Boston Brawler and so who naturally comes to the rescue of softer, squishier members of his cable gang.
