Well to be fair, there were two guys there with an AR-15. One was black, the other white.

I do agree. However, there's a difference between an intimidation by showing unwillingness to conform to unconstitutional standards and intimidation by threatening violence or violent acts.
A freshman Democrat in a conservative New York congressional district says he'll vote for a government run health care option even if his constituents don't like it.
U.S. Rep. Eric Massa says he supports the single payer plan and would vote against the wishes of voters if he believes the insurance plan would help them. He was videotaped making the comments Saturday at a political conference held by the liberal Netroots Nation.

While I don't see the problem, apparently it's common practice to edit footage in order to further your position, heck, Fox has been doing that and a lot more for years.
-Good for the gander, perhaps.

They claim to be a news channel however, that's the problem.
BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation today accused MSNBC of using deceptively-edited video from a Phoenix, Arizona anti-tax rally on Monday to invent a racial stereotype in its on-going effort to demonize and marginalize American firearms owners as “racists.”
But by raising the racial issue in this context, bloggers claimed that MSNBC was purposely misleading viewers by not showing that at least one African-American man has also carried a gun to an event.
An MSNBC spokesperson responded to POLITICO: "Contessa was speaking generally and not about that specific person with the automatic weapon."
UPDATE: Bill Wilson, president of Americans for Limited Government, is now calling on MSNBC to fire those involved with the broadcast.
" But Brewer did specifically cite an unidentified African-American man who attended a protest outside of a Monday speech by President Obama:"Yesterday, as President Obama addressed the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Phoenix, a man at a pro-health care reform rally just outside, wore a semiautomatic assault rifle on his shoulder and a pistol on his hip."
