NBC's Andrea Mitchell gives her take on the state of Iowa while covering the upcoming caucus. Mitchell makes her feelings about the Midwestern state to the viewers, opining that "the rap" on Iowa is that it is too white.

"The rap on Iowa: It doesn't represent the rest of the country, too white, too evangelical, too rural. Still here, politics are personal," Mitchell said on Sunday's broadcast on NBC's "Nightly News.

Iowa is 60% urban and has no greater percentage of evangelicals than the national average.

Andrea must be prejudiced.

Calling this clown a reporter is the same as calling Herr Dr, a journalist.

Andrea must be prejudiced.

Of course she is...like all her comrades in the state-run media; she hates conservative whites, gun owners, and Christians.

Blah, blah Andrea; we have heard it all before. Funny story (at least I thought so!).

Back in 2004 my company planned a trip out of town for some of us. We flew out of the Des Moines airport. It was the day after the 2004 caucus and it was of course packed. All the media types were there moving on.
I had never seen so many people so ready to leave!
I was just laughing to myself thinking of the media from the large markets such as New York and Los Angeles and they were probably thinking they were escaping from somewhere!

Many people just don't get what it's like in a small state. That's good!

Bingo! And gun ownership is for minorities only, provided they just kill each other.

I notice she did the usual “there are some who say” which basically translates to “the person sitting next to me on the bus”.

Your skepticism has forced me to conduct exhaustive research. For which I am usually chagrined. This time, however, it was with utmost gratitude.

That statement is right up there with the newsie who said of the Supreme Court during the Bush-Gore election: “Why they are just a bunch of old white men!” I swear that is what she said, don’t know what her name is/was.

I think Andrea Mitchell is Jewish from birth, not conversion. Don’t now how she got the name Mitchell, however. Since I’m not too interested in her history, I have not looked it up on Wikipedia.

Just out of curiosity, Mrs. Greenspan, how does the racial makeup of Iowa compare to that of NBC News?

Well, they DO have Lethster Holt.

Andrea Mitchell.....that old broad is still alive?

I thought Williard Scott wished her a happy 100th birthday years ago on the “Today Show.”

Wow! She certainly sounds like a bigot and a racist when she makes bias, bigoted, racist comments like that. Though more then likely, she probably thinks that she spoke an unbiased view because her negative comments are about white Christians, who are, more then likely, natural born Americans.

She thinks America is comprised of the two liberal coasts. They totally want to dismiss the rest of the country.

*** Are lou yetter dyslexic, like I am? ***

:-) yeah 'sometimes'.

*** Is alan a {shhhh} Jew? ['That's Racist' .gif follows] ***

I don't know? About him or his 'w'itch wife.
Though I did get that Bloomingdales joke from a Jewish friend-business associate. And yep, it's about Jewish wives. It just seemed to fit her perfectly.

wonder if she even knows Iowa is majority Democrat and has voted Democrat I think 4-5 of the last 6 elections

So she’s a native born American, but what’s her ancestry? How many generations of Americans are in her ancestry? I am curious about the “American” familial descent that produces Americans such as her. Meaning those that have scorn for everyday Americans and divide Americans into racial groups, etc. Those who see America as a buffet table of independent dishes, in which some those dishes are superior, while others, which may include the tried and true, should be tossed into the garbage can. They see it that way, rather then as a melting pot or a soup kettle, where all the ingredients, come together to compliment and blend into one delicious, nutritious united dish.

You: “I notice she did the usual “there are some who say” which basically translates to “the person sitting next to me on the bus”.”

Me: I took it to translate as “In order to appear unbias, I will pretend it isn’t me saying and believing this and say that “there are some who say.” That way, maybe those listening to me, will think that there is a majority of people who think and say this and it’s not just something I think and believe and therefor would be called to task over.”

Sure point taken but in many cases it amounts to more or less the same thing. Unless you believe that the press “corps” is composed of vibrant, intellectual, independent deep thinkers (I don’t) then Journolist A’s “opinions” are probably very highly correlated with Jounolist B’s “opinions”.

I doubt seriously that any of these geniuses actually “think” in the commonly understood meaning of the term. I think they mostly parrot and regurgitate.

Hey Andrea...why don’t you take a vacay away from you damned Georgetown Condo and take a walk on the wildside where I used to live: Prince Georges County, Marlow Heights.....28th Avenue..... you won’t see any white people there, luv..... you can have all the black you want.

Mrs. Greenspan seems to be at least second generation American-born if one considers New York American.

The common denominator for Anti-American attitudes seems to be universities, as there are plenty of Mayflower descendents who are America-haters.

Andrea’s indoctrination was at the University of Pennsylvania, which, despite its name, is a private Ivy League reeducation camp.

That’s okay. There is no danger of her being fired for this kind of racial hate speech.
