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.
Thanks for the post, Mark. Someone has got to feed the Punk Of The United States talking points. Who better than state-run media?
A scholar like Mika can add fractions to Zero’s I.Q. and amplify his intelligence on a daily basis among her vast viewers and the male test-dummy sitting next to her.
Mika is pretty clueless and most of the time makes funny faces and funny sounds while the liberals on the show are talking. I guess this admission puts her in the Maddow/Olbermann club. What is interesting is Mika does a Morning Joe commercial on MSNBC where she says she always tries to be ‘fair’. ‘Fair’ is their codeword for liberal socialism.
“Mika should be on the WH payroll. She shills for Obama every day. And Joe isnt much of a conservative voice, IMHO.”
I’d love to be Joe’s chiropractor with all the contortions he’s twists himself into in an attempt to be “moderate”.
Bush could have done it. MSNBC would have laughed at him for doing it, but he could have done it.
The outrage is that Mika TOOK THE INITIATIVE to collaborate with the White House in doing her "journalism". She voluntarily became a WH spokeswoman on MSNBC's payroll. MSNBC should declare Mika's salary as an "in kind" political contribution.
You have the patience of Job.
Please don’t insult the Cretins.............They are dead and can’t defend themselves.............
Whata ya know, an honest propagandist.
Pray for America
Good point. A media whore actually admitting it.
Guess they feel pretty comfortable in that position.
She’s got plenty of “journalistic” company. Amazing how this gang of whores can side with a thuggish regime. Particularly after their whining over the evil Bush Administration.
Its not like MSDNC has any credibility to protect!
The MSM does not just support the Dems. The MSM IS the Dems.
A real jounalist would be ashamed to say that, let alone hear it. Of course, they quit teaching real jounalism decades ago.
She’s not a “real journalist”...she’s a shill.............
Remember when the WH Press Corp. ostracized a reporter for daring to ask a question favorable to the Bush admin? I forget the guys name (he turned out to have a past involving male(gay?) modeling or some such). Anyway, the MSM accused him of being a plant and ran him out of the press room. Wonder if the rest of the MSM will put Mika on the blacklist?
She is not a journalist, she is an employee for the White House..period. She is always looking at her blackberry during the broadcast getting her notes from the White House.
Very disturbing and disgusting.
At the very least we should all send in letters of our disgust not to MSNBC or NBC News...but to our local editorial board of our newspapers and have them print it. This way it will show up in search engines everywhere that MSNBC works hand in hand with ZERO objectivity with the Obama administration and is never to be trusted or watched as a news source.
She should have been back in the home country shilling for Jaruzelski and Company back in the day.
While sampling a friend’s homemade brandy, I spent a few idle, half-inebriated moments trying to decide whether this woman was attractive or not. I decided she wasn’t, because:
1. I prefer brunettes;
2. Mike always looks as though she’s about to spit out a peach pit.
Mike = Mika
those contemplative moments were some weeks ago
Mika was fired from her previous employer who said she was “too weird looking.”
How about mentally ill? Like all liberals.
I hope they do go viral.
Those are great pics.
The only thing they lacked was a more visible Biden.
Maybe a Biden reminiscing, as he tries to tell Obama
all about the great old days of the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill hearings, which he turned into The Joe Biden Show.
Most liberals I know aren’t mentally-ill. They are, almost to a person, extremely immature and incapable of thinking logically.
Liberals feel while conservatives think: isn’t that the mantra?
And I wouldn’t call Mika weird-looking. “Puckered,” perhaps, or maybe even “pointy.” Every now and then, though, I look at her sidewise and go...”Heh, maybe...”
The issue of what????
Aw, comon guys, who says this is a dictatorship????
and she’s better looking than Robert Gibbs -
what a milestone in her professional career
Joe, must have in his PMSNBC contract that before he criticizes Obama, he must first criticize President Bush. He brings up George W. Bush this and George W. Bush that over and over. So tiring Joe, working for the LIBERALS, it must be like walking a tightrope.

Joe hasn’t been a recognizable conservative for some time now.
