<p>On Monday, NBC&rsquo;s <em>Today</em> and <em>CBS This Morning</em> deceptively edited comments from Republican Congressman Raul Labrador to constituents at a recent town hall meeting while discussing the GOP health care plan. While the Idaho representative was actually dispelling an outlandish false claim from a left-wing protester at the event, the two network morning shows ignored that context in an effort to make Labrador look out of touch on the issue.</p>

<p>During his report on the health care bill on Today, correspondent Peter Alexander declared: <strong>&ldquo;House Republicans are getting an earful from constituents at town halls nationwide. Idaho&rsquo;s Raul Labrador under fire for this claim.&rdquo;</strong> A soundbite followed of the Congressman stating that &ldquo;Nobody dies because they don&#39;t have access to health care,&rdquo; with the crowd jeering in response.</p>
