Skip to comments.MSNBC’s O’Donnell Denies Anti-Palin Media Bias
Posted on 02/24/2009 6:53:25 AM PST by curth
During the Monday 12PM EST hour of MSNBC news coverage, anchor Norah ODonnell interviewed conservative film maker John Ziegler, creator of Media Malpractice, a documentary on media bias against Sarah Palin, and denied any such bias: "Well, let me ask you, you called the treatment of Sarah Palin and her family a, quote, 'media assassination, one of the greatest public injustices of our time.' Is that a little strong? Are you and her a little thin-skinned?"
Ziegler responded by pointing out ODonnells own anti-Palin bias: "The evidence is overwhelming. It's continuing today. I mean, just a few weeks ago, Norah, you incorrectly stated on the air Sarah Palin called Barack Obama a terrorist during the campaign." NewsBusters reported on ODonnells January 29 smear of Palin.
ODonnell criticized part of Zieglers documentary: "Let me ask you, in your documentary you cite examples of media bias by Saturday Night Live, that that's media bias. Aren't those comedians?...How's that media bias?" Ziegler explained: "Poll after poll shows that more people get their news from comedy shows because the line between entertainment and news, as this network has shown time and time again, has virtually evaporated...MSNBC used to be a news organization, now it's an advocacy organization, and SNL is actually thought to be a news organization."

How stupid do these people think we are?
How can someone deny an undeniable, obvious bias?
‘Ziegler responded by pointing out ODonnells own anti-Palin bias: “The evidence is overwhelming. It’s continuing today.

I’d note Nora O’Donnell is a political hack, but thats a requirement for employment at MSNBC.
I can imagine that they are so deluded by their own lies to the point they actually believe it.
For further evidence of this, consider a poll taken by a news organization right after the election in which respondents were asked to identify which candidate/ticket was identified by various statements or positions expressed during the campaign. One of the questions in the poll was about which candidate considered being able to see Russia from his/her home foreign policy experience. This was one of the questions with the highest "correct" responses, but the pollsters apparently failed to recognize that it was Tina Fey in her impersonation of Palin that made that claim rather than Palin herself.
Media bias? Does O’Donnell cast a shadow?
Tina Fey is a hero because she had a big role in ridiculing Sarah Palin. Many Americans got their knowledge of current political events from Tina, and learned that Gov Palin was a blithering idiot.
The Left knows that comedy shows have power and uses them and artfully denies that it has an impact "It's just a comedy show!"
Hearing Tina ScarFeyce is even more obnoxious than Nancy Pelosi. I know it’s almost impossible. Almost.
As with other Marxists who open their mouths, she lies. Simple as that. Liar!!!!!
Nora, are you?.....every time a liberal is exposed as being bias,they automatically resort to asking questions instead of answering...the claim,media bias,the retort are you this or that?
I am hearing impaired and use closed captioning when watching TV. During the Academy Awards Tina Fey was presenting an award. She introduced herself as Sarah Palin and then said some really non-sensical, stupid stuff. The audience was roaring but I don’t think the TV audience heard it because of Fey’s off-timing and the noise in the audience. The deaf and hard of hearing did though via the captioning. Just another example of the infiltration of “Sarah is stupid” campaign of the left.
Remember,Jerry, it’s not a lie,if you believe it.(George
Norah, your husband sexually abuses your oldest daughter. Any children you might have aren't really yours - they belong to your oldest daughter.
I've hacked into your personal e-mail and am now accusing you of misusing the e-mail system. Your hair and clothes are ugly. You're nothing but trailer trash trying to pretend to be someone. You're as dumb as a stump. And. . .P>What's wrong, Norah. A "little thin-skinned"?
Maybe we should ban political comedy?
She is not predjudiced. She just hates Palin.
The man (or woman) in the street knew ALL about Gov Palin: the questionable parentage of her young son, the pregnancy of her teenage daughter, the banning of books at the local library, charging people for rape kits -- man! The amount of "information" about Palin that people had been exposed to was sure staggering.
