Mika Demands: Stick To Christie Bridge Scandal, No Obama/IRS-Benghazi 'Distractions'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 01/13/2014 5:43:25 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

We got ourselves a good Republican scandal here, and we're sticking with it. No distractions about President Obama and his culpability in the IRS and Benghazi matters. Capiche?

That was Mika Brezinski's message on Morning Joe today. When Mark Halperin mentioned that President Obama has never subjected himself to the kind of intense media grilling on Benghazi and the IRS that Chris Christie underwent on the bridge scandal during his 109-minute press conference, Mika laid down the law. Bringing up Benghazi and the IRS is "flailing for some sort of distraction. It's Chris Christie. It's New Jersey. Stick to that story," she ordered. The MSM at large will be only to happy to comply.

The media are back to their old tricks. Using their access to the airwaves to elect a democrat.

The fact is that there is hardly a single major bridge in this country that doesn’t have at least one lane shut down most of the time.

I’m really surprised they’re going after the guy.

He’s the perfect candidate to lose to the next ‘rat candidate.

Another northeastern liberal “republican” that no one can get excited about, leading to a 2012 repeat.

Mika, you want to destroy Christie, go for it. We have a deep and conservative bench. P.S. — We’ll save the brutal Benghazi ads for when Hillary’s campaign gets under way.

I don’t use the bridge. I don’t live within 500 miles of it. I don’t care about it. I don’t watch MSNBC either.

There is no doubt the so-called press is in the tank for libdems. After the spygate scandal of this administration aimed squarely at presstitutes was ignored by these same mediots, it was apparent to this administration that their allies in the left-wing media enclaves were in its corner without reservation. Candy Crowley’s complicity in propagating a lie to assist this little president during a live debate, laid bare the media’s willingness to augment the level of scrutiny against enemies of leftism.

This has to change, the first amendment notwithstanding, OR the Republic will cease to exist as we have known it. The 4th estate - just like the three articles of Government - it out of control and have no respect for "WE THE PEOPLE".

The solution is so simple.

Just have a conservative billionaire buy all the networks and then fire all the commies and hire real conservative to report the news.

Much better use of their millions that giving the money to the RNC each election.

Krispy should just do what the Clintons did — claim that what happened is “old news and its time to move on.”

Or, Krispy could say, “What difference, at this point does it make?”

Dear Mika,

I want to take the opportunity to thank you for doing my our jobe Now we don’t have to spend money on a primary opponent, TV ad or information railing against another NE liberal Repubican politician. This means we can focus on our Conservative candidates.

Again, always a pleasure watching the unintended consequences of the left.

Regards

The TEA Party.

Many in my family have discussed this for years, and were hoping Rush would buy the NYSlimes or implement some such strategy. IT would take tons of money. Didn't Slim whatever his name is from Mexico bail out the NYSlimes years ago?

It’s too bad that it wasn’t some of her family members instead.

Mika Brezinski should be deported back to a Siberian gulag where she belongs (and take daddy along for the trip as a bonus).

Yet that is what so many conservatives are also saying in egging on the highway scandal story.

Fallujah is being ignored, the IRS and DOJ eavesdropping were always ignored.
