Heres my post from yesterday, which kicked this off:
Soledads performance here is absolutely jaw-dropping. This video could just as easily been headlined, Soledad OBrien Melts Down, Ends Reputation As Journalist, Unmasks Herself For All Time As Leftist Propagandist Joel Pollak handles the situation perfectly, staying on offense, and making all the right points. Joel had the following to say to me after I told him he had performed impeccably: I thought of Andrew, and the rest was easy. Perfect advice for all of us, going forward.
UPDATE: Having seen this, Soledad responded to me on Twitter, but refused to answer these two key questions...

Not only did this dope melt down, she proved that she has no idea what she is talking about. That interview was hilarious.
umm.. how about a link to the Soledad interview that he is talking about?
It is proving hard to find this morning
neverming- here it is
soledad interview with joel
I saw the video yesterday morning and it stuck with me all day; like many others here I watch these types of interviews all the time. It really was a perfect execution of an interview.
Some if not all on Hot Air ..... the Breitbart site should have it too, I would think.
Amy Holmes and Joel did a GREAT job!! Soledad looked like a smarkey
high school student, I could barely stand to watch her!! I am amazed at
how our universities have been able to brainwash these journalists!! How
On GOD’S green earth are we ever going to be able to fix this??
Joel Pollak was amazing in his responses. Very cool, unruffled, and goes right in against the attacks with confidence and knowledge. Just.... WOW.
“That interview was hilarious.”
It sure was. She could NOT see the ‘bombshell,’ just repeat “A Harvard student and a Harvard professor, where’s the bombshell?” By the end she’d been so soundly defeated, she could hardly hiss her adieu to Pollack.
Wow. She is professionally unhinged. She is uncomforable and loathing.
I’d say Polloc won that round.
And to think i used to like her when she was on MSNBC, way back when the network was just getting started. She had hosted a show that focused on technology, primarily the internet i think, and had a Max Headroom type character as her sidekick. Too bad she didn’t stick to just doing those types of shows.
Just the opening is enlightening. The video clip is shown. From there, two approaches are possible:
"Welcome to the show. We've seen the video. This has been characterized as a "blockbuster". Can you tell our viewers why this is a Blockbuster?" -- this is the approach an objective reporter might take.
"That's IT?? THAT'S the blockbuster?? Seriously?? I mean, we just watched it and I have to tell you I'm not seeing the blockbuster here! I mean, REALLY?? That's your blockbuster, sir???" -- Soledad's attempt at winning a Pulitzer
Mr. Pollock was very impressive.
What's her face was an embarassment.
Soledad never had a reputation as a journalist. In the major news media, she has always been one of the most --- perhaps thee most blatanly biased, Democrat party suck-ups ever to appear on a television screen. She fools no one and this latest episode serves nothing more than to prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt --- if there actually ever were any doubters.
Two of the questions I had about the interview were: 1. Why was Jay Thomas included in the panel? What expertise did he bring (none that I could see and had no knowlege of CRT or Professor Bell) 2. Did CNN ask him to make the charges of racism (are you afraid of black people) when Soldad was going down in flames. They all wear those little earpieces so the producer, etc can talk to them. That was a particularly funny charge which showed lack of research on someones part since Pallak is married to a very beautiful black woman.
Perfect advice - great post!
Somewhere a village lost their idiot - he was found on CNN - will be returned soon....
It was superb. CNN's O'BRIEN had her head handed to her.
LET THE VETTING BEGIN,
Yeah, they probably had a room full of lefties with their talking points behind them, whispering in their ears...
NOTICE IT WAS ONLY THE LEFTISTS THAT CONTINUALLY BROUGHT UP RACE.
Our enemies are revealing themselves and they now appear in plain view. They must be confronted and defeated in the public arena.
Watching a Leftist show host find out that not everyone will allow them to spout nonsense, salute it then agree to move on to another topic, is priceless.
SoBad O’Brien was flummoxed, because this guy had the gall to rightfully call her on her ignorance.
She had no idea what Bell was involved in. All she could do is keep repeating “Very respected professor, over and over and over...”.
The clip is definitely worth watching.
Amy Holmes did fantastic.
“You’re wrong about Critical Race Blah Blah, but let’s go on.”
“No, I won’t go on, explain what your understanding of C.R. is.”
Yes, her “performance” was so over the top it was rediculous, how anyone could defend or claim she is an “journalist” of any calibre after this one is beyond me.
She basically behaved like a talk show host, not a journalist, her mind was made up before a word was said and she was going to attack and mock anything said and give it no credence.
I have never heard of this woman before this clip, but I can tell you, the very idea that should claim journalistic objectivity when reporting anything after this is ludicrous.
“She is professionally unhinged...”
I heard that exchange yesterday and it sounded like “Solenoid “Potatoes” O’Brain” kinda shorted herself out over it. She’s fried in the head.
One word Soledad......puta
Answer: An all out revolution were anything goes because these leftists will not go w/o it. They only believe in democracy when it suits them & when that fails it becomes a war. Either meet them & destroy or stay the passive & get taken to the Gulag.
But! I seems to me the video is like a tsunami. It just keeps building with each wave larger than the previous. O'Brian's poor performance is just a start. Here we see a question that I would love to know the answer to.
O'Brian, did you receive talking points on this from the White House of their right hand Media Matters before the interview?
I hope Dollard keeps up the questioning in regard to this. Maybe we should all email O'Brian and CNN and demand an answer to this question.
The hit may not land on Obama but the leftist media is defiantly feeling a blow.
It’s in the post. “Excerpt” means you only get a part of the post . If you click on the “Continue” link, you will continue to the whole post, which, as anyone would imagine, contains the video. Right here. http://is.gd/ZXtQSs
Oh for Heaven’s sake, how seriously can one be about a person named after a prison?
She was trying to suppress her utter hatred and radical left wing bias, but failed miserably. MSNBC is not close to journalism. It is nothing but DEMOCRATIC MORONS trying to make EXCUSES for the INEPTITUDE of OBAMA and the SOCIALIST DEMOCRAT PARTY. It’s no wonder why their rantings are in the sewer, right where they belong.
Its amazing the lengths that his zombie-like followers will go to protect him. However, the other woman openly defends the footage and questions why it wasn’t out there in ‘08. That surprised me a bit. The black guy, probably thinking he’s the 2nd smartest guy in the world - obama being the first, also reinforces the crux of the footage. That the professors were radicals and that they shaped his thinking.
And what was Jay Thomas on there for? Wasn’t the last greatest thing he ever did, was in the Tic Tac Toe thing on Hollywood Squares?
Meltdown is understated for sure. She comes off as a complete partisan idiot. YET - she would never admit it or believe it. Libotards never see their own stupidity.
Dear God in Heaven.....why doesn’t this stupid, drooling little bitch just don the hammer and sicle and be done with it????
She sounded like the WH press secretary she is.
Pray for America
“Pollak handles the situation perfectly, staying on offense, and making all the right points.”
Breitbart would be proud!!
Tweet her this ...
Obama Pal Derrick Bell: I live to harass white folks (VIDEO)
Soledad’s hacksterism was also highlighted by the Black gal who simply mentioned that the media had hidden that video in 2008 and asked why the media should decide what the public should be vetting rather than simply letting the public make up their own mind.
That Black gal did more to help race relations than Barack Obama or any of these thugs ever have or ever will do, because she was reasonable. That’s all we ask.
And if anybody has any questions about what Obama was forcing Chicago school students to be taught about Black supremacy, they need to look at http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/225971/wright-101/stanley-kurtz . In mid-October of 2008 Stanley Kurtz put together some of the connections between Obama, Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, and the people whose work was forced on Chicago schools through the Annenberg Challenge.
That video footage and the AUDIO with Obama telling people to embrace the teachings of Bell would have been additional evidence of those connections and OBAMA’S SUPPORT of what the Annenberg Challenge was actually pushing onto Chicago schools. But the media refused to air the audio from this video footage (that we’ve STILL only seen in edited form). Why?
Well, we do know that in October 2008 Soros had threatened the media heads with FCC and anti-monopoly annihilation after the election if they reported on the eligibility issue. And the media companies had passed that down to the on-air personalities as threats against their careers, with their lives and families’ lives being questionable. Somebody in the meeting with the on-air personalities said that it was said at the meeting (basically) that if such a threat had been made by somebody like Bush it would be problematic but since it was by Obama who is their friend they would willingly do what he asked anyway.
Those claims were made by Doug Hagman. Links are below. The transcript of Hagman’s interview with Laurie Roth can be seen in Tom Ballantyne’s book “Oh Really O’Reilly”, for anybody who doesn’t want to slog through 3 hours of audio.
And Mike Zullo, commander of Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse, has verified that the threats actually did take place. See http://www.wnd.com/2012/03/did-threats-silence-media-on-obama-probe/ for the article, and/or see http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2856160/posts for discussion regarding the article.
I’ll post here a comment I made earlier that gives the links for the Hagman information. I should also add that before I got confirmation of the accuracy of Hagman’s claims from Mike Zullo personally, I constructed a timeline of events related to potential Soros threats, and based on that timeline I had already seen that Hagman’s claims were very credible, which is why I reported them to Zullo and why he investigated them himself. (It was when I tried to forward my timeline to Zullo that my ISP informed me that my reply to Mike’s e-mail couldn’t be sent because the address failed; so I forwarded it to a go-between who forwarded it to him with no problem. Somebody with power to control the ISP didn’t want me communicating with Mike about Soros’ threats.)
Those threats were actually basically repeated PUBLICLY when Media Matters told Ben Smith that they were conducting guerrilla warfare against Fox, trying to get British regulators to destroy NewsCorp - right after Hannity had agreed with Trump’s statements that Obama should release a BC (which led to the release of what the posse has now confirmed is a forged BC).
Here is what I posted earlier about this, which puts into perspective Breitbart’s death, the bomb scare with Rush Limbaugh, and the presser all happening on the same day (taken from the thread at http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2854663/posts ) :
Right, but if he depends on Clear Channel for anybody to hear him, they can tell him what to say.
And this is a critical issue because Soros has threatened the media companies - including both TV and radio - if they reported on the eligibility issue. The same day as Sheriff Arpaio had a press conference saying there is probable cause that Obamas birth certificate and draft registration are both forged, two of the most independent and effective conservative media entities received messages intended to be overheard by every reporter at that presser. Rush had the bomb threat situation. And just hours after interviewing Sheriff Arpaio, Breitbart was dead.
So the country isnt hearing that a law enforcement investigation found that Obamas records are forged. Theyre hearing that Limbaugh called a gal a slut.
What the MEDIA, though, is hearing, is that Soros meant what he said when he threatened them - because Soros is working on taking out anybody in the media who MIGHT HAVE reported on the crimes that Soros & Co have committed to take the White House and country by an illegal coup.
The media is scared spitless. I encourage people to listen to the interview of Corsi at http://radiopatriot.wordpress.com/tag/dr-jerome-corsi/ (note: updated link) . Alex Jones says the people close to Breitbart believe he was murdered and notes that Michael Savage has a bodyguard and airs from different places because hes fearful for his life. Corsi then mentions that the media companies were threatened if they reported on the eligibility issue. Doug Hagman had investigated that, and the posse has corroborated his claims; Corsi says he will report on that soon (if hes not bumped off too...). What Hagman said was that the media people he spoke to were scared - and that was long before this situation with Breitbart and Limbaugh.
That was great. We need as many interviews like that as we can get. Clearly the majority of the panel was on the defensive and instead of answering him they resorted to the Ad Hominem attach of calling him a racist. I guess they were never read the story of the boy who cried wolf when they were young little statists.
“they probably had a room full of lefties with their talking points behind them, whispering in their ears...”
As the interview progressed, didn’t it seem that Soledad (who’d name a kid after a prison?) was being fed info from a producer via her headset? When she stopped drooling and started to respond coherently, weren’t her words verbatim from Wikipedia? I’m not sure... just asking. Something I’d heard.
mightily and he’ll never be invited back on that network. Reason and logic; the heavy weapon of conservatism and classical liberalism.
