'Morning Joe': 'The press was in the tank for Obama' (Video)
Daily Caller ^ | December 21, 2011 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 12/21/2011 8:22:58 AM PST by Rufus2007

On Wednesday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, host Joe Scarborough and guests were in agreement: The press was “in the bag” for Barack Obama during his 2008 campaign.

The conversation kicked off referencing Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly’s recent interview with former President Bill Clinton.

“We talked about it before, … [O’Reilly] trying to get it out of the President [Clinton] that the press favored Barack Obama by a longshot over Hillary Clinton,” Scarborough said. “And you followed Hillary around in 2008 and just saw, everyday, incoming [attacks] against not only Hillary Clinton, but anybody who supported her.”

Tell us something we don't know, but how about this time around Joe, you and Mika keep an eye for the media being in the tank for Obama before it happens again...

It’s always refreshing when the MSM admit the obvious. But I’m sure it was a lapse, and they’ll be right back in the tank for Obama as if this discussion never happened.

He thinks they were in the tank for in 2008? How about every single day since??

Three years in office and not a single scandal, no relation to a scandal and absolutely no wrongdoing by anyone he has ever even heard of. The lovefest has continued since day one.

The DNCmedia is the enemy.

At least they have removed the blinders—in 2008 Hillary was screwed. the MSM worked overtime to slant the news, ask the soft questions to get Obama elected—only to have bought a “pig in a poke” who turned out to be a poor leader and a weak president. At least the truth is out for them. Maybe they can re-think things and select someone else in 2012.

You know the amazing part is you are right and it is to the point where people I know who like Barry have absolutely no idea of whats going on in the regime. When you tell them they say well that's Fox news making stories or that’s the right wing.

As the realization sinks in that they will lose in 2012 and someone like Newt will roll-back all their socialist gains under Obama, they will beging to dump all over Obama too.

We can tell how bad they think they are going to lose by how bad they start to dump on him.

If it looks totally hopeless they will even push for a draft Hillary movement

That was the only bright spot of the 2008 election season. Watching and listening to the Clintons whine that the press was favoring Obama at the expense of Hillary. Favorable press is the only reason Clinton isn’t in jail. They were correct of course. If Obama was white, the presstitutes would have ripped him to pieces and HC would be president now.

Well, except that it appears MJ thinks the press should have been in the tank for Hilary, and made a mistake in favoring 0 over her.

It's more than that...they are admitting that they are just realizing it, and by association that they couldn't see it at the time. They were just root, root, rooting for Zero to win.

They knew all along that they were in the tank for Obama. That’s what the whole “Journo List” flap was about — journalists informally swapping ideas as to how best to advocate for the democrat candidate.

But for the MSM every day is a new day. Call them on an admission like this tomorrow and they’ll either ‘play dumb’, quibble with your wording or say it’s ‘old News’ and demand we ‘move on’!

It’s like wrestling with a muddy pig.

The link is the first time I've seen "Morning Joe." The venue appears to be much like "The View" with everyone interrupting each other.

Anyway, is "Joe" light in the loafers?

In other news, MSNBC has also discovered that water is wet.

Scandal? MSM hasn't even batted an eye over the Hawaii vacation.
Can you imagine any Republican spending seventeen days and $14 million in the middle of this financial crisis?

If hussein was W.......

Scandals, whether fake but accurate or real.

Connection to Rezko
Connection to Blago
Connection to Solyndra and a thousand others
Endless golf outings
Starting new wars
Czars
Fast and Furios
Walprin

and about a million others. But since hussein came in all those “investigative journalists” seem to have retired.

they still are in the tank for him.

Hiding, lying and just not reporting on him and his administration the illegal, radical and racist goings on...

Ole slippery joe was right in the skum tank with them.

From watching McCain’s seriously weak performance (and his staff’s manipulations and attacks on Palin who was more popular than McEvil), I think he was in the tank with his beloved media as well.

The GOP is now trying to do a re-run for Obama, warning canidates not to critize him.
