Hoffa Claims Media Editing True Cause Of Distorted Comment “Take Sons Of Bitches Out.”


Jimmy Hoffa wrote an opinion piece in the Detroit News yesterday titled Union Fight Against GOP Will Continue.  Short piece, usual ranting points, but this quote caught my eye.

Unfortunately, that’s not the way they (The GOP) see it. And they have powerful allies in the media. We saw the stark evidence last week when outlets such as Fox News and the Drudge Report edited a clip of my Labor Day speech and created a media firestorm. There wasn’t even smoke.

We shouldn’t be surprised that some media outlets distorted a comment about voting tea party politicians out of office. We’ve all seen how these media outlets work. They try to bully and intimidate. They create fake news to distract the public from their real agenda of lowering wages for American workers. They ignore the failures of politicians who duck the tough challenges of creating good-paying jobs, jump-starting an anemic economy and leaving behind a better America for our children and grandchildren.

So the media edited a clip creating a false image/video of you saying to thousands of people “Let’s take these sons of bitches out?”

The media bullied and intimidated you at this Labor Day rally?

The media created fake news?  Jimmy, is this not you?
