MSNBC chief: “This channel has never been the voice of Obama.” “’We hire smart people with a progressive sensibility,’ Griffin said. ‘I tell them to go think for themselves. We don’t have talking points.’” Yeah, they don’t tell their people to think left, they just make sure they only hire people who already do so. It’s what some call “a distinction without a difference” although others simply call it “bulls*it.”

Gosh that is amazing, and all this time I thought Sergeant Schultz, Ralphy Madcow, Tingles, Bashir and all the rest were all trying to ride Obama’s leg at the same time, How could I save been so wrong? (Snark)

These people who say this shit are actually starting to believe what they are saying. Like someone who abuses drugs, after while you really do think you got picked up by aliens in the desert and had an anal probe.

I’m fixing to sue an event promoter in small claims court for non-payment of fees. Wouldn’t it be funny if Judge Judy picked it up and offered us a chance to be on her show?

We were just talking about how progressives lie to you and then just expect you to believe it – and this crap sandwich is a perfect example. And when you question it, they act like you are the idiot.

And he probably believes it, too. Somewhere else i just read that in the week before the election, PMSNBC ran ZERO negative stories about Sock Puppet, and ZERO positive stories about Romney. Yup, that’s what they think is “fair and balanced.”

My liberal friend told me yesterday that she agrees with the fact that news is no longer fair and balanced. She even admitted MSNBC was VERY left oriented. But then when I brought up some stories she claimed never to have heard (like the precinct somewhere that has something like 500 registered voters, but 1500 voted or some similar scenario, she says she felt if there was real voter fraud like that she would have seen it in the news! I’m not sure exactly what HER definition of voter fraud is, but this comes mighty close in my mind.

I was having a “discussion” with my most liberal lunatic buddy on FB last night, and he insisted that FOX was extremely biased, and all the others were fair and balanced. Dummies can be fun to play with on occasion.

Oh yeah. she immediately said Fox is extremely right wing. She didn’t say anything specific about CBS or ABC. But the concept that the media may not report things like the examples I gave for voter fraud is beyond her. Where do get this stuff? I told her both stories were in the news. She just shook her head and said “well if was really true, it would have been reported in the main media outlets and I would hae heard about it.” Of course this is the woman who claims to have stopped watching the news 2months ago. . .

I loathe MSNBC but can appreciate how hard it is to stand against the left and battle them everyday. I like S.E. Cupp, although I don’t always agree with her, she is a leading conservative albeit moderate on some issues and an atheist. She recently published an article chastising the conservatives that started the petitions for secession on whithouse.gov website. Here is the link to the article and my comment about it.

I don’t wan to secede because I am pouting.
I want to secede because the north east and far left states deserve to found there socialist country founded in liberalism they so desire and to pay for it themselves. I have served in the military a decade and as a defense contractor a decade overseas and shed blood for the United States only to find the people flipping the bird to fallen HEROES at Arlington and for this I want to secede with the red states and form a country founded on conservatism and values.

MSNBC might as well change its nomer to MSDNC because it is purely leftist propaganda even at its furthest right leaning journalists and commentators. Purely Obama propaganda machine and leftist ideology and that is why the ratings are a constant 25% of what FOX News ratings are; another obvious indicator that the election was rigged.

the real mystery is why they do so well in the ratings. Lately MSNBC has been close to FNC in the cable.ratings. Maddow has even been ahead of Hanniity in the 25-54 demo.

MSNBC is counting the fact that it holds the armed forces hostage on AFN as ratings. Broadcast all over the world and a lot of military are required to keep TVs on the news channel.

The National Broadcasting Company (NBC) is an American commercial … jointly owned by GE and current Universal Music Group parent Vivendi). …. A variant with two preceding notes is used on the MSNBC cable television network.

I think you’re right. When I go to the VA clinic for blood work or an appointment, the TV’s in there are all tuned to CNN.
That probably explains why they have any ratings at all.

You only hire communist loons (but they are smart, really they are), selectively report and edit to favor only Chairman O and his party in reports, and interview those that will support the democrat party line. A blind man can see the bias with a cane.
