MSNBC has long been as bad as Fox News when it comes to ideological bias. But with the hiring of longtime Team Obama loyalists David Axelrod and Robert Gibbs, it’s official: MSNBC is worse.

The cable channel that flies under the banner of NBC News is now all but a bona fide organ of state propaganda, an information channel that speaks in the same dominant voice as the folks running the government–and tries to mask what it is up to.

Fox news is pretty much middle of the road centrist, with a significant mix of “progressives” and more conservative types.

the same kind of oppositional attack-dog stuff Axelrod and Gibbs did when they were on the president’s payroll

Does anyone really think they aren’t on the president’s
payroll still?

They may get a check from Msnbc but it comes because
of their relation to Obama.

Disgusting and frightening, the placement of so MANY
libdem/former administration personnel in the fourth
estate!

Why do they still have MS in front of their name? Microsoft (even as liberal as that organization is) couldnt even stomach them any longer and dumped them a couple of years back.

But what makes him an expert on what some Republicans in Congress feel or don’t feel about the sequester and what kind of “dangerous” thoughts they hold?

Eh, this has been SOP at MSLSD for years. Here's a typical segment: "Tonight, the Pennsylvania primary: What does Rick Perry need to do so Newt Gingrich's supporters will vote for him instead of Mitt Romney? I'm Lawrence O'Donnell. With me tonight: Representative Shelia Jackson Lee of Texas, Katrina Van Den Heuvel, Editor in Chief of The Nation, Sandy Fraud-Votegetter, Director of Outreach at ACORN, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Chairman of the DNC."

Precisely. Yes, Sean Hannity has Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin on and he is a right winger. BOR is a populist and Greta is married to a Democrat strategist and plays it pretty center of the road. MSNBC is flat out propaganda from the far Left.

Hint: if you see it on TV, hear it on the radio, or read it in a newspaper, it’s government propoganda. It’s so pervasive, they don’t even try to hide it anymore. It’s all about social engineering and brainwashing the masses now. Bread and circus.
