NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 02/28/2013 6:25:01 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Using her most sarcastic scared-little-child voice, Mika Brzezinski has mocked Bob Woodward for saying the White House threatened him over his reporting on the sequester.

On today's Morning Joe, Mika said "is he really afraid of a little aide who said that to him? Really?"

How do you go from being a hero of the MSM to a wuss in one minute? Take on a Democrat president instead of a Republican. Ping to Today show list.

It goes without saying that if a Bush official threatened Woodward, or even looked at him cross-eyed, Mika would see Nazi Germany or Stalin’s Russia right around the corner.

That’s Mika? So then why was she chosen as talking head? It wasn’t for her good looks.

If I were Bob Woodward, I’d avoid small aircraft and parks in the DC area, especially since Hillary has completed her stint as SoS.

that is amazing, as if the point is that Woodward was afraid, rather than that the White House is freaking out over being caught lying.

Question: Why are there no Republican journalists who track these issues this closely? All our guys are screedmongers and we have to rely on Bob Woodward to actually follow a serious story for us.

It’s too bad people are afraid of those little wusses. In a better world, those little fancy boys would be laughed at and sand kicked in their eyes. In this world, they command jack-booted thugs with assault rifles, assault clips, assault bullets, and itchy fingers. Woodward is due to join Breitbart with a heart attack.

The aide is not the one to be worried about. It’s the guy on the street asking you for directions. The guy who just destroyed a file with your picture and personal information in it.

I’m not afraid of the pencil necked geek from the IRS, I fear the organization that tells him what to do. There’s probably no way to explain this analogy to dear little Mika, bless her heart.

That's the scariest list I have ever read.

Whoever is/was behind the Clintons rise to power, may well be the same entity behind Obamas rise to power.

This chills me to the very marrow in my bones.

Like any average citizen and FR poster/lurker, I knew a small amount about the Clintons (ie “Arkanside”), but to actually see such a list.

I don't know anyone, nor any other public figure, with that many “acquaintances” who have passed on. Now I (sort of) understand Justice Stevens a little better.

If Mika was really a journalist instead of a talking head who got her job because of her father, then she would know that Woodward was being threatened with loss of access among other things that an administration can do.

Woodward depends on access for his columns and his books. If the Obamaists can deny him access within the government and influence other Dems acrross the board outside of the government to brand him as a MSM quisling, then he has been threatened.

Your post: Every time I see this picture, I think how she’s trying to look sexy and young, when in fact she looks old and pathetic.
***

Maybe it’s my age, but I find her physically attractive on one level (the SILENT level). But that, like the photo with her kicking her leg in the air on a table in a short dress, only makes her less credible as a “journalist” (or what passes for one on MSNBC).

Once she opens her mouth she is full of the same inconsistencies all liberals have. “You are free from government, as long as you do what government recommends.”

I don't think she is an unattractive woman at all. Perhaps I should have used the word "undignified" to describe the picture.

At 56, I'm stll a pretty darn good looking woman (if I do say so myself!), BUT, I am good looking for my age, jumping up on a table and throwing my leg in the air, still wouldn't cover the fact that I'm not 26.

All poor Mika was doing was assuring that SHE would keep HER White House/Dem access and bona fides. These media types know exactly how the Chicago thugs threaten. They’re used to and (gladly) accept it.

Yup. The media couldn’t care less about the WH threatening someone because they called them out. Thats not important to them. What’s important to them is calling the threatened person a sissy. There is NOTHING they won’t do to protect king obama.
