MSNBC Looks To Battle
Pro-Obama Reputation
During Second Term

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/21/2012 6:41:23 PM

Over at the Huffington Post, media reporter Michael Calderone reports that MSNBC President Phil Griffin seeks to combat the network’s growing reputation as not just being “progressive,” but being openly “pro-Obama.” Many believe the network’s “pro-Obama” reputation has, thus far, been warranted: A recent Pew study found that during the final week of the 2012 election campaign, MSNBC ran zero negative stories about President Obama; and not a single positive story about Republican challenger Mitt Romney. Comedians have also taken to mocking the network for what seems to be an

MSNBC is socialists ALL of the time, rarely a conservative voice. FoxNews has its liberals and socialists on every panel and even its business shows on the weekend. There is no comparison. FoxNews is fair and balanced.

Occasionally I tune in to the MSNBC branch of The Ministry of Truth, but only to see who is advertising. I then direct my purchases elsewhere.

MSNBC has been in the tank for the liberal left and slavish in its´ devotion to Barack Obama for so long that no sane person would call them anything but unfair and unbalanced. They will go broke long before they are viewed as anthing but the propaganda arm of the democrat party.

Well..if you follow their standard proscriptions delivered daily about how to make up for past Discrimination in Society...all they have to do is cover a 100% Republican/Conservative point of view for the next ONE HUNDRED YEARS! (I´ll check back in about 50yrs to see if they are living up to what´s "Fair"...and "encourage" them by Bashing them for the lack of enthusiasm in their reparations)

Unless there is a total housecleaning at NBC News and their subsidary channels such as MSNBC News, I expect the result will not be battling a "Pro-Obama Reputation" but a continued creep of that pro-Obama reputation deeper into the NBC News operations and over to CNBC.

MSNBC is a disease that kills from within.

Oh please, they do not. How can they not be pro-Obama when they hate Republicans so much? It´s not really about Obama as much as it´s about to-the-core, bitter, flesh-eating, brain-damaging, hatred of the GOP.

They will continue as they have been, despite this pathetic attempt at PR rejuvenation.

MSNBC has been doing the same thing to the country that the 30yr. old nit-wit Occupooper performed at the Tomb of the Unknown.

The only way for that place to get cleaned out would be to bulldoze it to the ground while the "so called staff" was still inside.

Have they forgotten they openly admitted they received daily phonecalls from the White House outlining to them what stories not only to run but to frontline?

And yes, they were both serious, as well as honest. The only thing from MSNBC I ever believed.

This makes no sense: Why "battle" their pro-Obama reputation if they are right about Obama being such a great POTUS?

Second, why did they wait until the second term to suddenly get religion and admit they´ve been biased all during the first term?

Aside from MSNBC being irrelevant at best, do they think they can gain some credibility with rabid, ear-splitting, spittle-spewing, shrieking TV personalities?

Finally, who cares other than the people who own this ratings-disaster program?

With as much info that the media knows about but refuses to cover for us the viewers, the fact that they are making this ´just kidding´ attempt to recover viewship must mean that there is something really, really bad out there in the wings.

We the thinkers here at Ldot already know that.

Whatever is done at MSNBC, please keep the two biggest losers, Chris Matthews and Lawrence O´Donnell. What whiners and truly miserable human beings. They will do more for the other side in the long run if they continue to spout their rhetoric claiming Republicans are racists because they dared to disagree with Obama. Chris Matthews still thinks he will be the next Tip O´Neill.

Also keep Rachel Madow. She is good for pure entertainment so we can be encouraged when we see a smart, well educated, lesbian demonstrate just how miserable she is. She surely has value as a human being. Perhaps along the way we will get to see her drop her snarky, condescending ways and enter the world as an actual person.

Stop the presses! This has to be THE news item of the year!

Has anyone told MSNBC how irrelevant they really are, how they´re ALWAYS at the rock bottom of the ratings lists, that almost NOBODY watches the ranting and raving of Chris Matthews, that MSNBC almost NEVER has any opposing views on their shows, that their idea of a balanced round table is Joe Scarborough (whose ties to Republicans and conservatives were effectively severed ages ago)? Does MSNBC still not understand that less than one percent of all Americans have ever heard of Rachel Maddow or Lawrence O´Donnell(my figures I admit), or that their network is the single most biased, most disrespected channel of any network anywhere today? It wouldn´t matter if MSNBC nails pro-Obama banners across its front doors and each commentator wears "HELP ELECT OBAMA FOR A THIRD TERM" on their bright red sweatshirts The fact is, MSNBC just DOESN´T MATTER! They could go off the air permanently tomorrow and only a handful of their fellow socialists would even notice. Or care!

A fish rots from the head down.
NBC is just as awful as MSNBC.
Brian Williams is just vile.
Foster Friess , Sheldon Adelson, Rove´s multimillion PAC and the rest should forget the ads and instead
try and buy a controlling interest in
one of the networks.
It´s the only way to reach the low information voter.
FOX News should also have a directly competing half hour news show in the same low information
format as NBC, CBS and ABC.
My personal goal for the next four years is to not only avoid seeing or hearing Obama , but , to avoid anything shown on NBC , CNBC , MSNBC or
the slyly political Weather Channel.
Unfortunately, GE also owns the Military and the History Channel , so, I am not going cold turkey there, but, I will cut back.

Griffin doesn’t think his anchors sugarcoated the situation: “We hire smart people with a progressive sensibility,” he told Calderone. “I tell them to go think for themselves. We don’t have talking points.”
===================================

When you discriminate against those who are not progressive, you have only people who would write left wing talking points left, DUMA$$.

Mr. Griffin is quite a fool, but thinks he is fooling others.

Oh, sure... Their entire lineup is built on 0bama worship and hatred of traditional American values. They have prevailed among the liberal networks by taking the most leftist view on every issue. Even if they dumped all of their programming, conservatives would still not be interested. FOX NEWS has the highest ratings for very good reasons.

On objectivity, integrity, and professionalism, the liberal networks have screwed the pooch!

Get Chris Matthews some meds for his lunatic behavior and for his tingle in his crotch.
Keep you dude Maddow off other shows like the crapfest Late Show with Dipwad Letterman. Its bad eough that you have her/it on PMSBSNBC.
And last but not least fire Mika and Scarbouroh because they suck.

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

Democrats target 30 House

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to
2016 front-runner status?
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/15/2014 2:28:49 PM     Post Reply
Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

UC Irvine Should Immediately Rescind

Note: This post was inspired by the #DropDropbox campaign. On March 20 the University of California, Irvine, announced that Barack Obama will give the commence address to its class of 2014. This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration? Because he is a Democrat and we should hate Democrats? No. This is not an issue of partisanship. It makes sense that UC Irvine would want an accomplished, high-level, well-connected individual as their commencement speaker. There is no doubt that Barack Obama is an

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
