Outrageous MSNBC

The spin about Sarah Palin and John McCain having "no chemistry" is something else. This after Senator McCain appeared on the Don Imus radio show today, and stoutly (Imus said "huffily") defended his running mate. Listen here.

Foghorn to MSNBC:

What you sense from McCain and in turn by Palin is loathing towards NBC. Though Williams is by far the least egregious of all the NBC reporters (and subsequently, that's why he's an also-ran in that network), neither Republican is trusting him for a moment.

You can see that in their faces towards him, not towards each other.

My God, these people will spin anything negatively. You know what Matthews led with in his programme today? The Palin clothing budget instead of what everyone from CNN and Fox led with -- "Dow down 500 plus points".

I'll post separately with a photo and my further thoughts on this matter. Bottom line is, MSNBC is a disreputable channel which has long since jumped the shark, no matter how many times Olbermann and Co. get called on the carpet for their misbehaviour.

  • You're absolutely right. It boggles the mind that MSNBC still exists. Who would pay to advertize on that channel?

    Also, I don't quite understand why McCain/Palin even bother to appear on any of their programs. What good does it do them? They must know they're walking into an ambush every time. Pointless.

  • Thanks for the comment, Anonymous.

    Remember that they gave the interview to the more moderate Brian Williams, not to MSNBC proper.

    I think at this late stage, it would've been too much of a slap on the face, if NBC were the only network not given an interview.

    It's interesting that they went jointly though. It's much more difficult to edit TWO answers, one right after the other.
