Oh MSNBC, don’t ever change:
● “MSNBC Guest Stephanie Miller: Rudy’s Obama Comments Like Using the ‘N-Word,’ and ‘C-Word.’”
● “National Journal’s Hirsh [appearing on Chris Matthews’ Hardball]: Time for a moral sanction against gun metaphors similar to the ‘N’ word.”
—The Daily Caller, January 21st, 2011.
● “Can’t Make This Up: Now Joking About Obama’s Love for Golf is ‘Racist’ to MSNBC.”
—NewsBusters, August 29th, 2012.
—NewsBusters, August 30th, 2012.
Just another day at the office for Comcast’s Jim Crow TV. Which is why, as Ace writes today, “Enough of the game. Your entire politics is based upon resentment towards the existing American order and a hatred of current American mores. Get the f*** out of here with your insistence that I credit you as ‘loving America.'”
Update: As Charles C.W. Cooke writes today at NRO in “The Fall of MSNBC,” unlike right-leaning Fox News, MSNBC, “by unlovely contrast, does not aim at a broad swath of the United States at all, but is instead focused on a fascinating alternative universe to which few would-be viewers have ever been. Its handful of rather ordinary news anchors to one side, MSNBC’s hosts do not so much exist to represent a popular viewpoint as they are put on air to play a set of dramatic roles in what has become a vast and monomaniacal piece of conspiratorial performance art, of the sort that one might see composed by the theater department at Oberlin.”
Hence the kabuki theater above, just a microscopic sampling from MSNBC’s daily offerings.
