NewsBusters ^

Posted on 06/13/2011 5:03:16 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

When on today's Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski tried to report the comments of RNC Chairman Reince Priebus on Weinergate, Joe Scarborough shut her down and shut the comments out.

"It's just stupid. Just shut up," said Scarborough of Priebus.

Scarborough won’t permit airing of RNC Chairman’s comments on Weinergate. Ping to Today show list.

When will Republicans learn going on pMSNBC is akin to a beef producer showing up at a PETA convention to sell meat? In other words - a monumental waste of time, and potentially deadly?

His attitude on this thing clearly points to some naked sexting activity from Scarborough.

No you shut up Scarborough. You're no republican spokesman anymore. You sold your soul to the devil. At least Weiner doesn't have any dead interns to cover up. That we know of yet.

I still haven’t figured why the GOP goes on MSNBC. I’d shut them out entirely if it were my choice.

That is true. If the question is asked of Joe and Reince, “Have any of your staff died in your office?”...only Reince can answer, “NO”.

This is great. The rats thought Weiner was just a throw-away, one ‘wittoo House ‘Democwat. It’s not like he was the prestigious Banking Queen [Barney Frank]. But Scar-baby is making people curious now. What does the chairman think? What’s he saying? Heheh!

The ‘rats are in a bind.

If they throw Weiner under the bus, they are admitting that some standards of behavior exist. Can’t have that, because the next “unacceptable behavior” could be their own.

But, the majority of people recognize what is “written on their hearts” and tell them that what Weiner did is deplorable.

Thanks for watching Morning Joke and reporting, Mark. Tactics of totalitarian wannabees. Joke didn’t get the memo. The Weiner is out and flopping around Congress. You can’t shut him down or not talk about him.

FYI

Don’t be surprised if Palin goes on Maddow’s show on MSNBC if she becomes a candidate. They met in DC in May.

Long link, but follow along, here:

To her credit, Maddow is the only one over at MSLSD who makes an attempt to be somewhat cordial to Republicans who bother to show up on her show.

Not allowing a tape from a Sunday show to be played is NOT a shout down of anyone.

The RNC Chair wasn’t on the show and therefore wasn’t shouted down. They were going to play a clip from yesterday and decided not to. How’s that for inflammatory headline writing?

Follow the money. Scarborough has become what his employers want him to be.

I flipped through the channels this morning and Scarborborough was just finishing a segment in which they were all saying, hey, of course it made sense to go after the Palin emails like a bunch of wild animals, no big deal, group shrug.

- The headline reads: 'Just Shut Up': Scarborough Shouts Down RNC Chairman's Words On Weiner

The headline doesn't say the RNC Chairman was shouted down but rather his words, which were shouted down with "shut up".

And idiot DNC chair Debi Wasserman-Shultz (sp?) was debating Riens Priebus and she screached “you never once called for [some Rpublican] to resign [over his sex scandal]” and Priebus said “That’s because he resigned” and DW-S said “But you never CALLED FOR him to resign”

What a bunch of dumbasses.

What the heck happened to Scarborough? Kinda like the guy who broke the Paula Jones story. Did someone get to him? Did he turn gay? How can a fairly sane conservative turn ito a vitriolic libtard? I call it the Goldwater-Alan Simpson effect.

Good grief. Please go back and read my past posts. I’m no lib. sheesh.

If you read the link I posted, you will note that Palin & Maddow met and it wasn’t a disaster. Evidently, it was polite. For the record, Maddow was cordial over time to Michael Steele and he’s become an MSLSD contributor. There is no danger of that with Palin.

I’m a solid conservative. Your snarkiness is interesting but of no moment to me.

What’s your problem, btw?

“The headline doesn’t say the RNC Chairman was shouted down but rather his words, which were shouted down with “shut up”.”

You shouldn’t redefine the term to defend a lame headline. Interupting the playing of a tape with an exasperated “shut up” is in no way a shout down. You can’t “shout down” someone who is not there. It means to yell over another’s words to drown them out.
IMO the headline is purposely misleading and inflammatory. Why else wouldn’t it be something like, “Scarborough refuses to play tape of RNC Chair’s comments on Weiner”?

MICKEY KAUS: Weiner not the only one heading for rehab:

Markos Moulitsas, founder of the Daily Kos, said he would request a leave of absence from his popular group blog to learn what he called “partisan aggression management.” ”Twice now–with John Edwards and Anthony Weiner–I’ve defended pretty obviously guilty Democrats by approving nasty arguments attacking their critics–arguments that turned out to be wrong. I thought I was fighting back, but I brought nothing but humiliation and disgrace to myself and my party. The truth comes out eventually. I hadn’t taken that into account. I have departed this morning to seek professional treatment to focus on becoming a better blogger and healthier person.”

There’s a reason this former Republican “rising star” suddenly up and bailed.
Anyway, he’s with NBC now, so he once again has to do what he’s told.
