Demon with a Glass Jaw

Vindictive, personal and above all – untrue? Let’s examine that last word first. For a while, John Nolte of Big Journalism was keeping a running count of NBC’s deceptive editing, including these examples:

1. During last year’s presidential election, Andrea Mitchell was caught manufacturing a Romney gaffe where none existed.

2. During last year’s GOP primary, Ed Schultz edited video of Texas Governor Rick Perry to make him look racist.

3. In April of last year, the “Today Show” was caught editing audio of a 9-1-1 call to make George Zimmerman look racist.

4. In August of 2009, Contessa Brewer sliced and diced a photograph so it wouldn’t look like a black man attended a Tea Party carrying a firearm.

5. Just this week, NBC News maliciously edited video of a town council meeting to make it look as though Second Amendment civil rights activists heckled a parent who lost his son in Newtown.

Vindictive? NBC has an entire subsidiary channel devoted to making their stories as vindictive as possible — a raging case of “liberal Tourette’s Syndrome,” as George Will dubbed it — to the point where even stories about Super Bowl TV ads become racial jeremiads on what Jeffrey Lord accurately described as “MSNBC. Better Described as Jim Crow TV.”

As far as personal, well, Mitt Romney’s adopted African-American grandson was considered fair game for mockery by the network in December, which had then only recently allowed an anchor on the air to suggest defecating in a former governor’s mouth.

That’s the tone that the network uses to paint half the country as “The Other,” and Gregory’s own childish attempt in late 2012 to brandish a gun magazine that’s illegal in the District of Columbia, the home of Meet the Press’ studio, to intimidate the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre certainly fits the bill.

NBC, the very definition of punitive liberalism, really shouldn’t have a glass jaw when receiving the very mildest of criticism in response.

To find a liberal like Tim Russert is not easy. Russert was a liberal of the old kind, the kind that could dialogue with his adversary. The present generation of liberals are ideologically formed reactionaries who follow the script without any critical thinking at all. There are no Tim Russerts any more. American liberalism is a wasteland just as much as American liberal television.

David Gregory looks like a suit and tie version of Pajama Boy.

I completely lost interest in this show when Gregory brought an empty 30 round clip on the air (to push for a nationwide ban). Since NO ONE on the show's staff was intelligent enough to realize that this clip is illegal in D.C....OR...if they did it never occurred to them to simply move the taping of that episode to their Baltimore affiliate, since this clip is legal in Maryland, he got the network in hot water. His lack of judgement would have cost anyone else their job, but at NBC Gregory "walks on water"!!

Tim Russert, while leftist, could still have an honest dialog with conservatives, and even more important he could ask challenging questions to leftists. He could put himself in a conservatives shoes to question his liberal guests in the way a skillful conservative would, instead of giving them constant softballs, or challenging them with hackneyed straw man charachterizations of conservative positions, that the leftist can easily shoot down. Modern leftist reporters seem totally incapable of this basic skill, or else if they know how to do this basic kind of honest reporting they choose not to.
But the main problem is not just Gregory, but the shows producers and editors, who are just as clueless and biased as he is.
Face the Nation and This week are not much better, although their hosts occasionally do something right, where Gregory almost never does.

I don't give a rat's rear end what NBC thinks of my "chatter" or that which I read on the innertubes. The only real vote I get is to not watch, so I vote all day every day. And in those occasional chances to tell advertisers what outlets I turn to for information, their networks are never listed.

Their ratings are shrinking - not just for MTP, but overall news division - and revenues (advertising) follows ratings closely. It's been decades since news divisions have been profitable but the less they bring in, the more losses, and that brings unfavorable attention from the suits.

So we're winning that election. Keep up the good work.

The US is now "The Nation of the Perpetually Aggrieved". Everyone is insulted or angry or abused all the time. We have become a nation of precious buttercups.

Harden the eff up.

I have been very active in helping to host the TV talk show thread on FreeRepublic.com for some ten years now.
Every week we watch and analyze MTP and DNC Dave's antics as well as the other shows.
We watch the show to find out what the left will be concentrating on, how they will be covering for the numerous screw-ups of their side and what the newest talking points from the DNC will be. We are never disappointed.Its always a left wing show and always has been.
What other network would hire the likes of david axelrod and the entire crew of MSLSD?

Catino is right about who is a liberal. The word "liberal" originally meant someone who loved liberty - see John Stuart Mill, On Liberty. It has now become a euphemism for "socialist," and socialism is not love of liberty but of state control of the economy.

They first used "progressive" because Marxism or communism didn't sell well at the turn of the 20th Century. After a while, the disasters of their programs became an inescapable stigma, so they expropriated the term "liberal" (which wasn't really being widely used) until they made that toxic as well about 25 years ago, when they began slowly switching back to "progressive."

But note that "socialist" is no longer a tainting label, after four decades of effective federal control of education of all levels has led to radicals controlling most faculties and curricula, because the radicals have effectively obscured its real meaning.

If socialists were proud to be socialists in public, they wouldn't be stealing the good names of other political movements (liberal) or hiding behind new names every 5 to 10 years ('progressive' being the latest one).

Look. NBC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the DNC. Gregory is just another mouthpiece. His ratings matter as much as truth-telling does to Obama.

Putting the narrative out is the most important. The Lie has to be repeated and come from all quarters to sound authoritative.

Gregory is just a loss-leader among the liars.

It is racist to criticize NBC for their ratings failure.

I hear Gregory has a tough time getting to work since he refuses to turn right at any corner...
