NBC's Kelly O'Donnell Calls Congressional Advocacy Of Tax Increases A 'Bright Spot'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Earlier today in another item this NewsBuster wrote: "In the liberal media mindset, mature, sensible citizens will vote for higher taxes, and by extension, for Democrats. If they don't, they must have taken temporary leave of their senses. The notion that people, in full control of their rational faculties, might be opposed to higher taxes and more goverment, simply doesn't compute in the MSM medulla."

Literally within minutes of that item appearing, we had a perfect illustration of the MSM mindset it described. On Morning Joe today, NBC's Kelly O'Donnell called the support for tax increases contained in a letter from a number of congressmen to the so-called Super-Committe a "bright spot."

If this super committee results in tax increases, Boehner needs to be removed from the Speaker’s office immediately.

A radical leftist supermajority between 2009 and 2011 didn’t even float a tax increase due to the political impact, and here we are with the potential just after a conservative tidewave election.
