Senator Barack Obama pledged TRANSPARENCY.

Hoisted on their own Orwellian/Stalinist petard.

There is a REASON GE (owner of NBC) pays no taxes,
even ignoring the obvious connections elsewhere.

Who is surprised the MSM has come to this?

One day, sooner than later hopefully, all republicans will respond to any request from these newsphonies for comments with an appropriately rude noise, followed by a good belly laugh.

At least they've got to stop considering them conduits for serious news.

I think that Fast and Furious will be the death of NBC and ABC news as the end of Holder becasue of their coverups.

Now the Non-FOX “News” media is going to show its situational ethics and protect the most non-transparent Imperial President in US history. Bravo NBC. Sink with the rest of the double standard Democrats.

It would sure help if Republcians would go on TV and explicitly treat journalists as if they were paid employees of Barack Obama and the Democrat Party.

"Katie, you push the Democrat agenda very well, but let me just say ..."
"Chris, yes, the White House does want you to make that point. Mission accomplished. But the truth is ..."
"Alan, this is like talking directly to the president. Well done! You serve the White House well. But the facts are with me ..."

Shame on you, you worthless sack of meat.

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was shot in his back by cowards just like you.
And now his family is being stabbed in the back by another bunch of coniving cowards, just like you.

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was doing his job, having already served this country as a Marine.

Shame on you. Shame on everyone connected with this cover up.

Thomas Roberts subs for Sgt. Schultz on PMSNBC.

Thomas Roberts is the first cable news anchor to publicly come out.

Roberts publicly acknowledged he is gay while speaking at the annual convention of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) in Miami, Florida, which was held on September 8, 2006.

He had slowly been coming out at CNN over the past several years. Diaz reported that Roberts, who has been a member of the NLGJA since 2005, said he was proud of his partner and that staying in the closet was a difficult thing for a national news anchor. "When you hold something back, that's all everyone wants to know", Diaz quoted Roberts as saying.

On September 15, 2006, Christie Keith, a reporter with the website AfterElton.com, published an interview with Roberts, who stated that he actually came out to coworkers in 1999, when he was living in Norfolk, Virginia. "I was happy, I was in a relationship, and I was very proud.

Roberts was raised a Roman Catholic, and still considers himself one.

He has been in a relationship with his partner, Patrick D. Abner, since 2000. According to an AfterElton.com interview, they celebrated their anniversary on September 30, 2006. On June 25, 2011, one day after same-sex marriage in New York was legalized, Roberts announced his engagement to Abner on his Twitter page.

Dear NBC News' Thomas Roberts:

Have you heard of the system of checks and balances? Congress can request anything regarding documents, and in the here and now emails. What parts of the constitution are you unfamiliar with; All of it?

Callers (democRATs) to C-Span are playing the race card. What part (of people lied and people died) do these race card players not understand? The race card players may as well call zer0 and now holder their gods. Sheet ....

That’s one reason I smell blood in the water here: the mild-mannered GOP folks are getting PISSED OFF. It’s not just those who COULD be called partisan fire-breathers, like Issa. It’s the Clark Kent types like Mica, Grassley, Cornyn and many others.

House Committee is not only entitled to the documents, it is their sworn Constitutional duty. Thus we see yat agin that the fifth column enemy euphemistically called ‘the media’ is working to destroy the Constitutional Republic they obviously either don’t comprehend or hate with all their ‘mite’. I happen to have no tolerance gene left, so I hate the media for the perfidy they daily convey.

You make an excellent point. Mica was sincerely disgusted. He’s not a grandstander in any way- this has him truly angry. And who ever sees Grassley in a dither as he’s been about this? These guys (Clark Kents) are PISSED.

They know something(s)we don’t.

Yes, very predictable. As if there was any question that NBC, et. al., are the propaganda organs of the democrat party and the 0bama regime. Well it’s confirmed now. Can you imagine NBC saying this if this flap took place under Bush?

Did NBC say the same thing during the Nixon years? I think not. Typical liberal hypocrisy. A real journalist would risk his life to see those documents.

Since the Dems and MSM (redundant, I know) like KEYWORDS so much ( "sour grapes" "axe to grind" "witchhunt"), I would like to spread the new KEYWORD from today's hearing.

This one is from the Republican side, though.

####

It sure would. Tremendously. But don't hold your breath.

Republicans treating these propagandizing, talentless slobs with even a modicum of respect, and an implied assumption of professional behavior, fair coverage and treatment, only serves to advance the Leftist agenda.

They should be cut off at the ankles; at even the level of foundational terminology they are allowed to deploy. (witness: “Homophobia” and “Birther”).

Their very framing of questions should be challenged or better yet ridiculed.
