The Nations Jeremy Scahill gave a scathing critique of MSNBCs coverage of the Democratic National Convention Sunday, saying it lacked any serious critique of the presidents foreign policy, and more resembled an Obama for America meet-up than a serious debate.
Responding to Michelle Goldberg of the Daily Beasts assertion that it would be political malpractice not to milk the death of Osama bin Laden at the DNC, Scahill responded: But many of the media discussions, including here on MSNBC, about foreign policy during the convention felt like we were watching an Obama for America meet-up, not an actual serious critique of this presidents most egregious aspects of his foreign policy where you do see that of the Republicans.
He continued: Theres all of this going after Romney, and I think thats completely legitimate but some of the core issues of this presidents national security policy are not being debated. And Im sorry, but watching John Kerry and Joseph Biden criticizing the war in Iraq? They voted for the war in Iraq Theres revisionism; theres jingoism

Scahill concluded: Im not thinking about this from a cynical political perspective. Im talking about life-and-death issues that cut to the heart of, are we going to follow the Constitution when it comes to due process for American citizens?
MSNBC is such a horrible "news" channel that just one thread here has more criticism of Obama than MSNBC has had during... well... the entire history of MSNBC. I started this thread last night, and I encourage everyone to use it as a reference for Obama's evil actions, and to pass it on to others:
The media could cover the fact that all of the leaking from Obama has damaged our national security probably more in the long term than having let Bin Laden go...they leaked info which outed our informant who is now jailed - in the future when we need informants they will not be willing to stick their necks out for us because of what happened to that informant. That is devastating, and the press just gave it a bit of lip service and let it go, rather than treating it as the massive scandal that it is - far, far worse than Watergate.
When will Comcast flush this turd of a network?
