DUFFY: Listen, is it non-negotiable that he's not going to enter Obamacare, and he's going to say, "I get my gold-plated health care plan, but I want members of Congress and rest of America to be in Obamacare." That's non-negotiable? Come on. That's not reasonable. One issue that we have is the media won't even ask the question about why are you treating families different than big businesses. You need Jon Stewart on Comedy Central to ask Secretary Sebelius, "Hey, why won't you treat these two equally," and she can't answer it. That's how pathetic I think news reporting has become when we won't ask tough questions to the administration.
MITCHELL: Well, we've asked questions to both sides. That's not fair.
DUFFY: Do you ask that question, Andrea?
MITCHELL: We have asked the question. The basic point is that --
DUFFY: Why do you want your own health care, and you won't join us in Obamacare? That question I haven't seen anybody ask on MSNBC. Please ask it because they don't have a good answer for it. With regard to actually --
MITCHELL: The response that Kathleen Sebelius gave to Jon Stewart was, "If we had gotten what we wanted, which was a single-payer plan, this wouldn't be the problem."
DUFFY: You say, "I think this is what they would say," but you don't know what they would say because you haven't asked.

Despite their best efforst, the msm is facing a failure in propping up the swooning Dear Leader.
Too bad Andrea Mitchell is so stupid she can’t tell the difference between looking stupid and looking like a journalist.
I think she looks more like a pizza....
I have something similar to say about her husband as well (and agree with your statement on her)
The Rs are getting closer to figuring it out. They have to treat the news media as an opposition party that they are. They have to bluntly call them out for their cover ups and for the lying by the Dems.
WI Congressman Sean Duffy takes nno guff from Andrea Mitchell!
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
No they aren’t. All they ramble on about is inside the belway DC double-speak.
They should be taking every moment in front of a camera denouncing these ridiculous shutdown measures and CALL OUT members of the government and Park Service, etc. that “follow orders”.
They should bring those managers and superviors, by subpeona, to hearings in the House and grill them good.
But no, they just go “blah, blah, work together, blah blah blah, CR, blah blah blah, debt ceiling.”
The Rs are getting closer to figuring it out. They have to treat the news media as an opposition party that they are.
Exactly right. The media jackals will tear you apart if you let them. The Rs are finally catching on that they’ll get berated no matter what they say or do, so they may as well fight back. What is there to lose by punching back?
The MSM (mendacious state media) is the enemy. There is no other way to look at it.
One of the few good things about the past few years is the fact that when I laugh at liberals when they repeat the MSM’s pathetic attempts at journalism, they retain enough common sense to not even attempt a snippy reply.
One of my faves is to get into an argument about climate change...and then enjoy letting the lib arts dumbos stumble around when asked even the most elementary physics question.
FINALLY!!! Somebody brought up the elephant in the room. None of the polls are giving as an option the real cause for the shut-down, and that is a complicit media. Without a media that hides the truth from the distracted/low-information people, the dems would not DARE try what they’ve done. And that doesn’t apply just to the shut-down; it applies to EVERYTHING.
When America is finally buried, the obituary will say it was murder by the so-called “news” media, poisoning the public through treasonous lies. They are accomplices to the murders of every man who died in Benghazi and a whole bunch of innocent Mexicans as well as Brian Terry in the FAst & Furious crimes, at the very least. They have blood on their hands, big-time. They are the critical accessories to the crimes committed against the American people.
I hope somebody comes right out and says that to Andrea Mitchell and all the others.
And it feels so GOOD.
I will take the Media serious the day they tell me how Obama got a Connecticut Social security Card, and how he got into foreign aid student program in college when he was an American,
I beg to differ, the media are doing their job and working quite hard to do so. Their job, of course, is to support Obama and to advance his agenda in any way possible, principally through the use of lies and disinformation so that the American people will not come to understand that they are being had.
MITCHELL: Thanks for your advice. Thank you, congressman.
Is that patronizing or condescension? I get them confused with just plain rudeness.
He kicked her ash all over the place. Well worth watching.
That was Ben Shapiro's book earlier this year.
Whoa, just one damned minute, I made a pizza tonight, that would take grave exception to that kind of slander.. :)
