Skip to comments.John Kerry: Media Has ‘Responsibility’ to ‘Not Give Equal Time’ to Tea Party
Posted on 08/05/2011 12:09:10 PM PDT by lbryce
John Kerry has waded into the media waters and now wants the news to cut out conservatives he doesnt agree with.
During a discussion of the debt deal and the economy on MSNBCs Morning Joe Friday, the current Massachusetts senator and former presidential candidate lambasted the Tea Party and conservatives and the idea that they should be given equal time in the media. According to him, their ideas are so whacky that they dont deserve air time:
And I have to tell you, I say this to you politely. The media in America has a bigger responsibility than its exercising today. The media has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual.
It doesnt deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do. And the problem is everything is put into this tit-for-tat equal battle and America is losing any sense of whats real, of whos accountable, of who is not accountable, of whos real, who isnt, whos serious, who isnt?

All fascists are morons.....case in point.
Kerry is such a maroon.
Do you think he’s more of a Maoist or Stalinist?
So, Mr. Kerry, we’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and say you’re not a Marxist...
just please tell us how you’d be acting differently if you were.
“Do you think hes more of a Maoist or Stalinist?”
Kerry is more of a Satanist.
This from a person who earned a DD or BCD and was pardoned by Carter for it? Who gives this guy a platform????
“Do you think hes more of a Maoist or Stalinist?”
He fits the profile of a “Radical Moron-ist”.
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
Wow...he’s is certainly promoting censorship of the media by the government.
We are hurting them and the hysteria simply proves it. Dare I hope that we can destroy leftism in this country for good? Hope springs eternal...
reporters expose and informa about a subject.
Kerry is demanding prohibition of information.
Kerry hates grandma.
Tea partiers don’t need the media to get their message out.
Like, for instance, when a certain U.S. senator claims that 'president' Richard Nixon ordered him to spend Christmas in Cambodia... ...in 1968.
jenjis rides again. Wonder if he still hears those Christmas carols from Laos?
Oh, ok, John Kerry.
That’s called government oppression of the opposition and the last time I checked, Chi-coms, the Soviets and every single tyrant and dictator did the same thing.
What about tanks? Are government tanks good at protest marches too?
Imagine if a republican senator said that Fox should not give equal time to liberals
Kerry looks like he’s had a face lift and is shot full of Botox.
Let’s see, a leftist traitor (John ‘the gigolo’ Kerry) thinks his friends in the media shouldn’t give anyone from the TEA party any coverage. What a shock! He is trying hard to brand anyone that doesn’t toe the liberal line as deranged, dangerous, blah, blah, blah. From Kerry’s warped perspective, if you’re not a big-spending, big-taxing leftist, you must be crazy and the media shouldn’t waste their time on crazy people. John F. Kerry is endemic of the liberal arrogance that amplifies the strong totalitarian streak inherent in the Democrat party of today. What Kerry is saying to anyone who isn’t a leftist is: shut up. Sorry ketchup man, we won’t. Not now, not ever. Your day is passing - and none too soon.
Too bad this b@stard didn’t come home in a box from Vietnam......What a POS.....
One of them should just to underscore the tyrannical nature of Kerry’s stupidity. Let the MSM get all wound up about it and then say it was all a joke to satirize Sen. Kerry. Then laugh and walk away from the microphones.
Kerry and his mis-use of parables is such a lout.
The people, finally waking up from BEING HELD HOSTAGE BY SOCIALISTS AND LIFER-GOVERNMENT ELITES, began to question what exactly is wrapped up in that little pink blanket, Johnny?
Kerry: It’s a baby!!
Dems: It’s a choice!!!
Pelosi: You have to give us the blanket before you can see what is in the blanket!
Kerry: Only legitimate thinkers can have this baby.
Dems: Its a choice not a child. Not a baby.
Exactly. It’s not a thing that will die if pruned. It’s a thing that must be examined, accounted for and pruned back Johnny.
It’s called a budget and YOU are using OPM even while you Geithner your yacht.
These people are so arrogant and insulated by perks, power and minions that they have no idea.
LOL!!! Yes, that’s him all right!
“La Grenouille Moronic”
I understand it was “seared - seared” into his memory...too bad his memory stinks. John Fraud Kerry and American Disgrace.
Heard about this on the radio today, I didn’t believe it when stated, but went online and watched.
Why would anyone watch the news if they can only present one side?
Kerry thinks letting nature to take it’s course is a crazy idea. He needs a government program to help all of nature’s functions to run better.
What an idiot
This is what happens when liberals get full control.....censorship, history re-written, suppression of any opposition.
Then, when the people do not comply, the liberals justify the use of violence against them.
Hey media, the Gigolo has spoken, now you know what to do.
Ecclesiastes 10:2 says, “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.” God said it, it must be true and that settles it. Kerry is a prime example of whom God was referring to.
There are better and more reasonable solutions and strategies for development of our political and economic progress. Since these mechanisms reduce the need of government involvement they are regressive ideas. Regressive ideas will no longer be tolerated.
Did he really say, “The President ought to convene the G8?” Did he really say that?!
First, John Kerry is a despicable human being and if not a traitor technically, betrayed his country without question.
Second, by his standard I would have wanted his left wing idiocy censored years ago.
Despicable and useless.
The MSM covered the Tea Parties wacky ideas like living within your means? All I know from them is they are crazier than loons.
I flippin can’t STAND john f’n kerry.
So Kerry dislikes the Constitution, freedom and liberty?
Oh that is right, the hundreds of thousands of US soldiers he sold out during the Vietnam War
Really. All somebody need do is read the US Constitution to get the message...
I went on Kerry’s Facebook page and every posting on his wall was blasting him for his comments. Every one.
My God!....What a stupid thing to say! This major A-hole was almost president?
OMG, don’t say ‘balanced budget’. Lordy, are they scared or what?
Arrogant POS has lived a charmed life ay? Must be cool to stand tall and lecture America as a vapid empty suit but a rich one at that thanks to the late Senator Heinz!
“”According to him, their ideas are so whacky that they dont deserve air time:””
Why is he afraid the TEA Party ideas will become known around the country? Every stinkin’ liberal is scared to death of new ideas and of losing their kingdom. Just think how many terms they had to serve to make people think they’re so irreplaceable. Guess what John!! I don’t care how long you and your buddies have been in DC, you’re expendable and the sooner, the better.
Wasn’t it Daniel Greenfield who wrote about The Professional Politician this week? Excellent and so, so true!
