Skip to comments.White House Responds to Blaze Video About MSNBC Hostís Departure
Posted on 07/22/2011 5:29:51 AM PDT by blueyon
Earlier today, we posted a simple little video that asked an interesting question: Is the the White House programming a news channel?
That seems like a provocative question, and it is. And some have wondered why we asked it. Why? Because a now-former MSNBC host suggested it in a resignation video posted on YouTube. Of course were going to do a story on that! And now it seems to have captured the attention of the White House.
Let me explain.
(Excerpt) Read more at theblaze.com ...
the head of MSNBC (hes presumably referring to Phil Griffin) met with Cenk and told him that he met with people in Washington and they didnt like Cenks tone.
Cenk may be on the wrong side of things but at least he seems to have a spine.
No surprise here. They did the same thing to Washington DC talk radio WMAL when management was pressured to get rid of Andy Parks and Fred Grandy.
Damn! If we only had a “Free Speech” clause in our Constitution. Oh...wait....never mind.
They (Anita Dunn, was one)bragged that they completely controlled the media during the campaign, every message & every story and all access. If they didn’t put the narrative to the story, it wasn’t reported on. Of course they are doing it now more than ever.
There is no dignity in being a journalist.
The WH didn’t have a ‘hand’ in it...
Of course not. The WH was in it from the tips of their toe nails to the last split-end of the hair on their head. Of course they didn’t have a hand it it - they were all-in.
I don’t know, The Bible is not a pick and choose kind of document.
So let me see if I understand the new media:
This article is an opinion piece from a radio host’s blog about the White House commenting on another blog post about a YouTube video by a disgruntled ex employee of a cable network that no one watches posted on a news forum.
Can you put this on Facebook and tweet it? That should just about cover everything.
Mixed it up with another thread regarding a minister who tore up some parts of the Bible he disagreed with.
I believe Cenk is scheduled to go on Olbermann’s show today to complain.
Damnable corruption. If and when the people get their freedom back..these acts should be prosecuted.
"Is the the White House programming a news channel?" ... a now-former MSNBC host suggested it in a resignation video posted on YouTube.It is unfortunate that this anti-American partisan hack will still be employed in so-called journalism. His semi-coherent, semi-paranoid ramblings about his resignation aren't exactly an indictment of either Zero or MSNBC -- so what that he claims he's harder on Zero than anyone else at MSNBC? No one on that network can be said to be anything but in the tank for Zero anyway. MSNBC's move was to put (another) one of Zero's diehard supporters into Skank's former timeslot.
It just proves, once again, that most journalists are nothing more than whores who throw themselves at people with power.
Today’s MSM is more like Monica Lewinsky than Edward R Murrow.
The old media is slowly being exposed as the Ministry of Truth that they are!
The 2010 elections prove without a doubt that the people have not only awakened, but have concluded that they have been lied to.
Name the medium, and you will find that left-leaning entities are losing market share, while right, or right-to-center operations are in ascendancy. It's a confidence issue, a credibility issue, that will marginalize the main-streamers for this upcoming presidential election also.
Sarah Palin is showing us how to make them totally irrelevant. She's completely ignoring the main-stream outlets, and is getting away with it. This would not be possible five years ago.
The media landscape has changed, and everyone sees it but the Democratic Party.
But by spiking stories that would reveal the leftist agenda, they help keep the people asleep. ssshhhhhhh
"Revealing the leftist agenda" is precisely what the main-stream media exists to avoid happening, and they can no longer "spike stories" with impunity.
I know what you are saying, they tend toward backing leftist ideological thrusts, and so they're a thorn in our side. But please look at the leftist memes that have been completely debunked, by actual results, in spite of the media's shilling for the leftists.
The 2010 election is the elephant in the room (pun intended). The people didn't buy what the MSMers were selling....remember the word "shellacking"? And what have we since? More misgivings than ever about Obamacare, more evidence that the stimulus didn't work. I sense that people have come to realize that hammering the "rich" with more taxes is also something that may have a downside. All this has occurred with the media, still shilling, losing more credibility by the day.
If I'm wrong, Obama wins. I just don't see it happening. The leftist media sold us a bill of goods, and they are being blamed as much as Obama, in my opinion.
As long as the American people accept lying as an acceptable character trait. What do you expect? Propaganda is just another form of lying. Spin is another form of lying.
Manipulating data is a form of lying. Americans can not make an informed opinion if everything they hear on TV or read in Newspapers is in the form of a LIE.
Demanding the TRUTH is the only answer to reaching solutions for our problems.
Chris Matthews, Ed Shultz, whatever you think about them, they seem like real, legitimate cable TV news shows. Not Cenk. He seemed like a nice guy, but that's not enough.
Anyway, long story short, was that when the network realized that he totally blew, and wasn't going to be getting any better, any time soon, they canned him. Since he was (according to the story), “well liked”, they softened it a bit w/ just a demotion.
He's either so delusional, that he doesn't think there's any reason to demote him, other than politics, or he's pretending that he is. Whatever. Another one bites the dust.
I thought that maybe you were referring to Obama tearing out those passages he did not like...
‘Todays MSM is more like Monica Lewinsky...”
At least Monica was not paid...as far as we know...
Good posts in a good thread. (I’ve never watched “Cenk” but seen posts/screenshots about him on FR)
No. At last count, they were programming at least seven -- NBC, SeeBS, ABC, CNN, MSDNC, PBS and NPR. And they're working on FNC.
