Video: MSNBC Host Kicks Conservative Off the Air
Townhall.com ^ | May 11, 2012 | Guy Benson

Posted on 05/12/2012 3:53:32 AM PDT by Kaslin

The topic?  Romney's decades-old alleged bullying, natch.  And without a shred of irony, host Tamron Hall bullies conservative guest Tim Carney right off the air:
  After fight with Tim Carney, MSNBC host Tamron Hall mutes mic

Hall was peeved that Carney had the audacity to call the media out on its "meta" narrative-building BS, so she got all huffy and cut his mic.  For the record, Carney says he actually was addressing the issue he was booked to discuss:
 

@TPCarney: The question I was sent for the Romney bullying segment was "Does the story matter?" So I was answering it, not dodging.


I hope you stuck with the clip above to the bitter end, when Hall pulls up the shot of Carney to scold him again -- but with his microphone muted so he literally cannot respond.  Yet he's the ingracious one, in her book.  Bizarre.  Meanwhile, I was over on Fox News discussing the Democrats' pickle in North Carolina.  They've planned their convention in a state that they'll probably now lose in the fall; NC's gay marriage amendment just passed by an overwhelming margin, and now some liberals are calling for a boycott or relocation of the confab.  I broke these issues down with Lefty Fox News contributor Sally Kohn and host Megyn Kelly.  Our bit was much more jovial than the MSNBC showdown, but I'd still encourage you to watch to the very end for an enjoyable one-liner about the president's self regard:

A person of limited intelligence can’t handle an honest discussion.
A person who sees disagreement as a personal attack can’t handle an honest discussion.
This MSNBC fits both categories.
Particularly telling, “This is my house.” Translation: “How dare you challenge me!”

Just one example of why their nickname is “MSLSD”.

Liberals, in general, cannot handle the truth and attempt to silence those that speak it.

It is all part of the “show” intended to instruct their robotic following on how to behave towards Americans...

If we are going to dig into Romney’s teen years let’s dig into Obama’s past.

This media thing with Romney’s high school history is clear and total BS when they wont even look at Obama’s history.

Dig into anyone’s HS history and you can come up with something.I know mine wasn’t as a pure humane sober virgin.
I quickly learned that the way to stop bullying was to kick one bully’s ass then the problem went away.

Today kids aren’t allowed to solve their own problems and learn lessons that carry them through life.

Mitt was right.

The media gets to ask the questions they want, and I get to give the answers I want.

She was anticipating that he would do this - whether or not he actually did - because she was projecting the lefts’ tactics on the situation. This is what the left does: they reply by launching a diatribe unrelated to the question that was posed. That’s their MO. Actually, the bait-and-switch occurred on PMSNBC’s part because the topic Carney was told he would be discussing was whether the bullying rumor was relevant.

You raise a good point...if Romney’s childhood is on the table...why can’t we see Obama’s grades? In the book ghost written for him by Bill Ayers...he admits to taking every drug he could get his hands on.

Obama also admits he “staggered” through high school...drunk or stoned. Yet he got into Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard.

Think affirmative action. Why is nobody in the msm interested in this...if they are interested in Romney’s high school career?

Huge double-standard. Many in the msm must be on the take. I suspect there are off-shore bank accounts set up for prominent “reporters”.

There should be an investigation by Congress.

I guess my question is; Why would Tim Carney appear on MSNBC? Anyone smart enough to make a cogent argument in Romney’s favor should be savvy enough to know that he/she ain’t gonna get a fair shot on MSNBC.

MSNBC is actually the second highest rated cable news network, well behind Fox, but ahead of CNN.

This indicates an increasing polarization of the news audience: the Right watches Fox, the Left watches MSNBC, and the middle watches CNN. And the middle is fairly small.

They have to control the story. If they can’t keep the sheep on message they will be in deep yoghurt with their supreme leaders in the DNC

I would characterize it as the hard left communists watch MSNBC, run of the mill left wing socialists watch CNN, and the middle watches Fox. Actual right wingers in America who believe in limited government, free markets, individual rights & following the constitution have no where to go on TV. So, they get their "news" from the Internet instead, and avoid the cable "news" propaganda channels that are little more than mouthpieces for rich "elites" running the two-party system.

Considering that Fox's ratings are more than the other two combined, you're probably right.

Yeah, how did that happen?

"Affirmative action" doesn't explain it all, because if you want to "act affirmatively" and throw opportunities away, you can give them to the first wino or stoner who stumbles along.

Somebody picked Obama. Who did it, and why? I'm thinking that Indonesian passport and "MUSLIM" marked on it had a lot to do with it, as also did Frank Marshall Davis and his Communist Party connections in California.

Have to concur that MCH pretty well broke it down, and the "right" gets most of their reading material at Lew Rockwell and a few similar sites.

Which is not to confuse, btw, really conservative Americans with "rightists" in the classical sense -- fascists and phalangists -- who probably don't have anything to read or agree with anywhere except perhaps Europa.com and Stormfront.

U.S. conservatives are "paleocons" not phalangists. Paleocons are anti-statist, along the lines of the late Murray Rothbard, who once called Wm. F. Buckley, Jr., a "totalitarian" for having made his peace with the idea that keeping our independence in the face of Soviet expansionism meant having to accept a large Defense Department and "military-industrial complex".

Agreed...some day, some citizen-journalist is going to do the due dilligence and look at Obama’s background...like the Kennedy assassination...this is one case the msm will not touch.

We still don’t know who Obama is.

Read my homepage, and especially the youtube interview with Percy Sutton (a powerful NYC politician and power-broker a few decades ago).

Obama got into Harvard Law on the sponsorship of Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal. He was also helped by prominent members of the radical Left. He's been being groomed for great things since he was a teen.
