Meghan McCain conducts first interview for MSNBC with Michele Bachmann
Yahoo! News' The Cutline ^ | November 30, 2011 | Dylan Stableford

Posted on 12/01/2011 2:53:36 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Meghan McCain, MSNBC's newly hired contributor, conducted her first interview for the cable news network on Wednesday with Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann.

McCain--who in January called Bachmann "a poor man's Sarah Palin" on MSNBC--said that the interview will air "soon" on "Now With Alex Wagner," the network's lunch hour show.

On Lawrence O'Donnell's "Last Word" in January, McCain took vigorous issue with Bachmann's tea-party rebuttal to President Obama's State of the Union. "I think it's important to note that Michele Bachmann is not a leader, and she's not the leader of the Repbulican Party," McCain said. "Michele Bachmann is no better than a poor man's Sarah Palin.

"I think CNN should be ashamed of themselves for airing this," McCain added. "It is one rogue woman who couldn't even look into the camera directly."

While McCain's harsh comments about Bachmann had the potential to make the interview uncomfortable, the sit-down with a high-profile GOP candidate could be designed to help quiet critics who say McCain is not a "real journalist."

Last month, MSNBC named McCain as a paid contributor shortly before NBC News announced the hiring of Chelsea Clinton....

People who claim to be objective (i.e., journalists) are insufferably self-righteous and extremely tendentious. Why would anyone think that Meghan McCain wouldn't fit right in with that bunch!

Exactly. Why would MB give the Chubby One any credibility?
To me, it makes MB look desperate for media attention.

I agree. No republican/conservative should do an interview with her. Let her wither & die on the vine.

Because, bless her heart, she's a poor man's Sarah Palin who is not smart enough or tough enough to be the candidate, much less President.

Dumb move on Bachmann’s part.

Glad McCain is on MSNBC however. It’s where she belongs...and guarantees I will never see her.

Which is a blessing.

Because all the successful candidates never do any interviews. Look at Gary Johnson, he's skyrocketing in the polls because he never does any interviews. /s

You people really need to stop following and do some of your own thinking for once. Its not that the left is getting smarter, its that the right is sinking to their stupidity level.

NO... mccain made ALL of those decisions. They were engineered to do exactly what they did... the elite had to kill off Sarah... but they failed... she is alive and well... but they lost to obama... and they are screaming down the tracks at a reelection win for obama... engineered to happen just like mccain’s loss.

I keep asking that same question about most Republicans' choice of media appearances.

There are plenty of objective hosts that will provide intelligent venues.

If you treat the lefties and airheads like they are irrelevant, that's exactly what they will be.

For me this indicates just how bad Bachmann’s mind set is, this interview, which I will not watch causes me great concern with Bachmann. What in the world is she thinking, she must be really desperate for face time with anyone who will put a camera in her face.

I don’t understand why people are so upset that she’s going one-to-one with the airhead. Michele’s pretty acerbic and once put Chris Matthews in his place. Most people would wonder why she went on his show but she shut him up for about 5 minutes. Just think what she can do to that little piglet!

No, actually, Nicole Wallace - McCain’s duplicitous lying ‘helper’ and Steve Idiot Schmidt are the ones who set Sarah Palin up with Couric and Charles Gibson.

If it weren’t for conservative blogs MSNBC would exist in a vacuum. Viewership is the lowest in cable. Bachmann’s energy serves her well but damages everything else.

You attribute WAY too much power to these alleged “elites”. The GOP is more grassroots than ever. This isn’t the old days when party bosses would select their nominee in the cloakroom of the convention.

You could not be more wrong. There are no grass root decisions when it comes to when, where and how the primary states are set up. There are no grass roots decisions on who can vote and not vote in our primary contests... the elite stack the deck and they hate our guts as much as obama, reid and pelosi. The elite decide who votes first... the elite funds attacks in candidates like Sarah Palin... they send out goons like rove... to spread lies and disinformation. Do not piss on my leg and tell me that it is raining.

I think you’ve been watching too many Oliver Stone movies.

What “elites” try to change the primary schedule?? If anything, the “elites”, i.e. the powers-that-be at the RNC do NOT want any of the changes being made now. It’s the state legislatures in places like Iowa, NH, Florida, Nevada, etc etc that want to move their primaries/caucuses up because their states get more attention, and therefore more campaign dollars and publicity.

Even if these so-called “elites” don’t particularly care for people like Sarah Palin, Herman Cain, etc......just how many votes do they have in the primary states? NONE. You’re assertion is that the base hates the elites, and vice versa. But at the same time, these elites somehow brainwash the base into voting for whomever they want them to in their respective primaries??? C’mon pal. I was born at night, but not last night.
