Rep Murtha's Miami Misquote: O’Reilly and Hume Correct the Record, others stay silent

Last Sunday, Murtha was the guest speaker at a town hall meeting on the Iraq War organized by U.S. Rep. Kendrick B. Meek, D-Miami, at Florida International University's Biscayne Bay Campus. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that Rep. John Murtha said he believed the “American presence in Iraq is more dangerous to world peace than nuclear threats from North Korea or Iran.” The report was quickly seized on by conservative media — including Brit Hume, Bill O’Reilly, Joe Scarborough and Tucker Carlson — to attack Murtha. Newt Gingrich, on Fox News, 6/26 said, "For an American congressman to say that is beyond any acceptable behavior, and I would hope the Congress would move to censure him."
