Posted on 06/21/2010 6:08:20 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
Cut out the middle-woman and install Obama's teleprompter on the Morning Joe set . . .
Give her high marks for candor: on today's show, Mika Brzezinski admitted that she has been "working with the White House" on oil spill talking points. But that still leaves the issue of the journalistic propriety of someone in Brzezinski's position serving as such a blatant shill for the president. H/t tip NB reader Ray R.
Mika could be seen reading from her notes during exchanges with former GE CEO Jack Welch, who was critical of the PBO's handling of the spill. After repeated ribbing from Welch and Joe Scarborough over her use of White House talking points, Mika came clean . . .

So much for journalistic ethics...............
Mika should be on the WH payroll. She shills for Obama every day. And Joe isn’t much of a conservative voice, IMHO.
Now there’s an oxymoron.
Not a surprise but still kind of shocking pint to Today show list.
There is nothing inconsistent in Mika’s action at all. MSNBC is one big shill for P-Bo.
Understatement of the year.
I think Mika could make a great living in any major city in the US.
One of the stupidest women on TV. She said that her favorite “Founding Father” was Abraham Lincoln. Yikes!
For heavens sake, it’s MSNBC. Everyone on the station works for the white house.
“So much for journalistic ethics...............”
The major difference between Liberal and Conservative commentators is, Conservative commentators say they are Conservative commentators and are proud of it.Liberal commentators “LIE” and try to pass themselves off as unbiased journalists.
If congress wants a fairness in media doctrine, what they can start with is in every media market, force stations, newspapers, magazines and television to post whether their position is commentary or hard news without opinion. This way people get to ultimately decide what they want to watch, read or listen to.
It is fair to both sides. You will know a Liberal show from a Conservative show and have the decision which one you want to read, view or listen to. You want to hear an opposing opinion, just click to that station. You are free to advertise where you want.
Mika is the moron who said her favorite Founding Father was “Lincoln”.
Yep, she has the brain-power to we working with the Obama team.
Now theres an oxymoron.
Now there's an understatement.
There are no journalists anymore, just propagandists.
Oxy Moron? Izzat how she bleaches her hair?....................
Hold on, once a journalist License, becomes a requirement, we will be free of all this bias, since only those with a government issued certification will be allowed to have opinions.
Yes, she could have many client #9’s and apply her true vocational abilities/talents.
It’s kind of scary. Someone at the White House monitors the show and sends Mika blackberry messages if they are not following the party line. Imagine is Bush did that. STATE RUN MEDIA they would be exclaiming.
just a few weeks ago Alex Witt said (I think to their NASA guy Jay) “speaking on behalf of the White House...”
That is very scary and this is a very big story. It compromises the integrity of the entire NBC network. Are they willing to continue to put it on the line for an unpopular president?
Teh One needs a Teleprompter, they need written talking points...
Cretins, every one.
