Posted on 01/13/2011 8:44:59 AM PST by Nachum
Guess MSNBC missed the part of Pres. Obama's Tucson speech decrying the way our politics have become "so sharply polarized" . . .
During today's Morning Joe, MSNBC aired a promo for PBO's impending State of the Union that featured video from previous SOTU speeches. Notably missing were any clips from past Republican presidents. Instead we were treated to a montage of JFK, LBJ, Clinton, Obama and even Jimmy Carter. Think Ronald Reagan, or W just a few months after 9-11, might have said something inspirational in their SOTUs? Not in the mind of MSNBC.

As if anybody watches PMSNBC.
Damned ungrateful of GE to have left out the best spokesman they ever had.
I saw that and it was the first thing thaat came to my mind. Since JFK we have had 5 Republican Presidents (Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush 1 and Bush 2) but the only ones shown were the 5 Dem. Presidents (JFK, LBJ, Jimmah, Bill and O). Is there any doubt that MSNBC is a shill for the DNC?
screw all tv news media as I will not watch any of them anymore. My TV will be used for my other passions, watcing football, hockey and lacrosse.
YEP....I think we are going to be cancelling Comcast cable tv....and watching only online, soon....just gotta figure out how to do it on our TV....
MSNBC always preaches to the choir. Look at it this way - if they have to kiss leftwing butts by showing only Democrats in their promos, then they must be worried that they may even lose THEM as viewers.
I don’t do business with GE or watch PMSNBC. And I used to be an employee (not in broadcasting) long ago.
We were in a division that got sold off by Jack Welch. I will not buy a product or stock until Immelt is gone and NBC is either taken over and cleaned up or off the air.
“Think Ronald Reagan, or W just a few months after 9-11, might have said something inspirational in their SOTUs? Not in the mind of MSNBC.”
THAT’S why you don’t watch them!!
This is subliminal and is being done all the time by the present administration.
Administration czars and unpopular officials rarely make appearances, e.g., Holder, who COULD have had a presser or two of his own—flanked by law enforcement, Mueller, local Tucson representatives, and the Dupnik character. A Tucson LEO and federal LEO could have been held on Saturday evening or at any time thereafter, especially given that the judge was murdered along with the congressional staffer.
The Together We Thrive campaign memorialization theme will erase America and Tucson and start using other implications, so that everything runs together. It is image and is meant to override facts, such the question of WHAT does that mean when we have 10% unemployment, 30% inflation on groceries, $3.XX/gallon gasoline, mounting foreclosures and over $14 trillion in (stated, non-off-the-books or obligated) debt.
Now, Chris Wallace has suggested that there is a suggestion that for the the upcoming SOTU, just this once, all members sit where they want. This is the Delphi diamond technique, meant to create the image of unity when in fact there is none.
Everything here is visual and uses the absence of information, a la the stonewalling of DOJ on the Hasan shooter case, lack of the count of dead daily in Iraq or Afghanistan, questioning of government officials before Congress, or the bringing of charges against the Black Panthers, as evidence. This is also the Birth Certificate issue all over again, by virtue of the fact that its lack of release is being used to advance an agenda as though the agenda is legitimate.
The perceived illiteracy and visual-learning reliance of the American people is being used as a net positive for the 0bama administration. For that matter, the bridge at Chapaquiddick no longer exists and so will not be missed.
I also forgot to mention that the people who were injured or the families of the victims were behind black dividers, presumably out of respect. It also removes them from sight. They were not front and center, nor were the speakers on stage.
Also, does anyone know of any time in the past when any person other than a sitting President has spoken at a podium that has the Presidential Seal? Except Clinton.
The MSM in the US are accomplished propagandists.
However, and as you say, how much skill or effort does it take to manipulate generations of voters preconditioned by a shamefully inept/biased public education system and by decades of the crudest, most maladroit system of institutionalized visual fraud on earth??
