How To Make Morning Joe Panel Shut Up: Say 'Solyndra'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 11/16/2011 5:28:14 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Ever been watching Morning Joe, and wished you could stop the steady stream of liberal blather? Simple. Say the magic word—Solyndra—and watch the gabby guests fall suddenly silent.

Today's show offered a prime example of the phenomenon. For the first ten minutes, the panel had a great old time gabbing and joking on the theme that the Republican presidential field is a mass of morons. They laughed at the mere mention of Herman Cain, likened the GOP field to a vaudeville show, dragged out the shopworn "bar in Star Wars" simile, and called the Republican candidates "jokes," "clowns" and "stupid." But then, 13 minutes in, Mika Brzezinski mentioned a story reporting that the Obama admin had suppressed the announcement of layoffs at Solyndra until after the 2010 elections. And despite Mika's wondering out loud "why this story hasn't picked up more," there wasn't a peep out of the quickly clammed-up crew and Brezinski breezed on to another story.

An additional suggestion: MF Global.

From yesterday...

MF Global CEO was supposed to lecture on financial responsibility today

Good one! That should also be a sure show-stopper!

Good one Mark.

This is ‘series’ as the FReepers are wont to say.

Fox News had an amazing statistic today from The Daily Caller: Politico had 138 Herman Cain stories in a week or two, compared with 9 Solyndra stories and 3 Fast/Furious stories.

Got bias?

MFG is even worse than Solyndra, which is undoubtedly why it is now off the MSM’s radar screen.

It would be nice if we had a free press that’s honest. And when are we going to establish the doctrine of separation of press and State?

That’s Barnacle the plagiarist and Tina Brown the magazine destroyer. A real brain trust there on The Morning Schmoe (hat-tip to Mark Levin!). How bad is it when Mika Brzezinski comes across as the objective one?

Part of the communist goals for America (20,21) was infiltrating the press.
Another part was taking over education (17).

For good measure they could throw in the Siga Technologies deal. A no-bid contract for $433 million for something there is no need for. Yet another payoff to an Obama donor.

The corruption in this admin is deep and systemic. But the MSM sees only the patriotic OWS'ers, Herman Cain's alleged misconduct, and Rick Perry's slip-up. If the Iranians get the bomb I hope they use their first one on the MSNBC studios.

It’s actually half of the new PMSNBC slogan. The entire slogan is, “Lean Forward And grab Your Ankles”

And since we’re discussing the MSM’s total lack of curiosity when it comes to ‘Rat criminality, I’ll just toss this out there: Barry decided not to go with Graham Spanier for SecEd. Was it because the admin found out what Spanier was covering up at PSU? Inquiring minds want to know....

I wonder when the Joe Biden Video of going to Jon Corzine for the Obama Administration for financial advise is going to be in a GOP ad.

I think it is a more polite way to say “bend over”

There are at least two major scandals brewing in the Obama admin: Solyndra, and the Gunwalker scandal. Neither scandal solicits as much as a peep out of Big Lib Media. Needless to say, if this had been a Pubbie admin, we’d be getting Watergate-sized headlines coming from those clowns every day.

As always thanks for keeping an eye on the enemies of America and common decency, and thanks for the pings.

FRegards,
