Halperin: No Liberal Bias In Saying Exclusion Of God From DNC Platform No Big Deal
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 09/06/2012 4:44:01 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Methinks the MSMer doth protest too much. If Mark Halperin weren't keenly aware that he was about to try to whitewash a huge vulnerability for the Democrats, why would he have prefaced his remark with the disclaimer that he and others weren't showing liberal bias by claiming it was no big deal?

But that's exactly what Halperin did this on today's Morning Joe. The show rolled a rolled of the DNC delegates clearly voting against putting God and Jerusalem-as-the-capital-of-Israel back in the platform from which they had been removed. We then saw the convention chairman fraudently declare that two-thirds had in fact voted to reinsert the language. But there was Halperin, claiming "I don't think it's liberal bias to say that the story is pretty much done."

Mark Halperin claims story of Dems attempt to remove God and Jerusalem from platform “almost over.” I don’t think so ping to Today show list.

The 100 Muslim delegates and their Palistinian-sponsored sympathizers clearly would have kept God and Jerusalem out of the platform had it been a recorded vote instead of the bogus voice vote. It was obvious that there was not a 2/3 majority for the inclusions.

Always be suspicious when someone defends themself before they’re accused.

Even MSNBC apparently headlined the fiasco “awkward moment” ... so they clearly don’t think the story is done. You’re in rarified territory when you’re more biased than MSNBC.

That's because they know they're guilty.

I've heard a term from golf (I don't play - I can get that kind of frustration almost anywhere else) that is "first teeing" - meaning making excuses for a poor game before you even tee off.

But come on, really. There is no liberal bias in the MSM. Just ask any liberal in the MSM (which is just about everyone in the MSM), they'll tell you there's no liberal bias. :-/

What amazes me is the RNC is not capitalizing on this, if they had intelligent marketing people, they’d release an internet commercial titled, “How the Democrats View Democracy”, or something to that nature, then show the fiasco with overdubs of, “Whoops, look like they didn’t the results they wanted, SOOOOO...”

But, what do I know, I’m just a tax-paying chemist with a career in the private sector...

Right. it's not "liberal bias" to try to dump the stinking, bullet-ridden corpse from the back of the speeding drive-by Democrat Obama Media Machine.

I have an exercise for you, Mark. Try Googling "Deneeta Pope" on the websites of USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, the New York Times, and the Washington Post. You'll get exactly ONE hit, on the WP website, buried on page whatever, as an oblique reference to her.

For some reason, Obama's Big Media doesn't want you knowing about The Racist Republican Paul Ryan's black college girlfriend.

Just like they didn't want you asking too many questions about Obama's college background.

If Halperin is not getting a paycheck from the White House, he should be. Or maybe it's just party loyalty...

The rats voting on God’s inclusion/removal from the platform is mind boggling arrogance. It would be a hoot if the ‘no’ delegates decided not to show up tonight.

Kids and criminals do the same thing. When alibis and excuses precede the accusation — they’re almost always guilty.

I also remember when the democrats actually booed the Boy Scouts, on the convention floor, a few years ago. obviously a reference to God, Country and Self in the Scouts oath.

The story is spreading like wildfire by itself...the GOP doesn’t have to do anything to help move it along...

I'm amazed that you're amazed. They are right in character, pursuing their long established pattern of FAIL.

Hahaha! Wishful thinking. It's not over until WE say it's over. I truly hope the Republicans feature that spectacle in an ad.

“I’m amazed that you’re amazed. They are right in character, pursuing their long established pattern of FAIL.”

No, you are right...what’s the definition of insanity, in this case, seeing the same pattern of behavior over and over again, and expecting to see something different the next time...
