MSNBC President Phil Griffin Claims Station Has No Ideology
Breitbart ^ | Feb. 1, 2014 | Robert Wilde

Posted on 02/02/2014 10:23:52 AM PST by PROCON

In a recent interview, 57-year-old Phil Griffin, president of MSNBC, said that the network “has never had an ideology.”

The former NBC researcher, who prefers jogging suits to business suits and is beset with constant nervous twitching, insisted that the network stays “true to the facts.” Griffin maintained that if a Democrat has problems, MSNBC anchors are not going to bail them out. He claimed, “If you’re a Democrat in trouble, we’re not a place where we’re going to rehabilitate you. You’re not going to get a free ride if you did wrong.”

MSNBC is there to deliver ideology, not profits, for its cable company owner which has $63billion annual revenue.

That’s right. Ratings are meaningless because MSNBC’s losses are miniscule compared to Comcast’s total operation. In fact it’s a fairly cheap way to get their propaganda out.

He could be right. It’s not the impersonal network, just all the reporters and writers they hire.

It’s an essential tenet of leftism that what they believe is the unalloyed truth. Definitionally, their views are facts, not opinions, and therefore it is only those that disagree with them that are ideological, confused, wrong, stupid, evil.

Lying is just another tool to the left. If it gets them what they want, it’s ok.

This man is a hero to schizophrenics everywhere. Clearly you can be delusional and become the President of MSNBC.

Lies, lies and more lies. What else would one expect from ‘scum’.

The “constant nervous twitching” is probably a neurological symptom of continuous lying - much like left-handed children who were forced to write with the right hand would develop stuttering.

That sums it up.

From his perspective, they don’t have an ideology. They think their way is all there is. It takes an open mind and a bit of intelligence to imagine that there are other opinions in the world, and what your own opinion might actually mean.

Really? Okay. Name a time any time, ever, that MSNBC had to issue an apology for a derogatory attack on a liberal..

He claimed, “If you’re a Democrat in trouble, we’re not a place where we’re going to rehabilitate you. You’re not going to get a free ride if you did wrong.”

Among Conservatives, telling blatant lies is frowned upon and baldfaced liars are shunned.

Among Democrats (progressives, Commies, Pelosis, a distinction without a difference), the ability to tell outrageous lies without batting an eye, as Griffin does here, is a badge of honor and a career enhancer.

On the other hand, the overindulgence of certain recreational pharmaceuticals could account for his nonsensical statements and the neurological condition. Just a thought.

Does he live in Washington or Colorado? Does he really think anyone who as seen more than commercials on NBC believes there’s no obvious, wildly biased ideology? LOL

insisted that the network stays “true to the facts FAX.”

That would be the FAX from the DNC and The White House.
