MSNBC to Host One-Hour Special About New Jersey Traffic
FrontPage Mag ^ | 01/14/2014 | Daniel Greenfield

Finally Bridgegate has its own Woodward and Bernstein and his name is Chris Hayes or Mr. Rachel Maddow. Is he all in? You bet, he’s all in.

Do you want to see this man talk about New Jersey traffic for one hour? Are you an MSNBC viewer? Then of course you do. It’s either that or Al Sharpton talking about how the Tea Party is just like the Klan or Ed Schultz talking about how the Tea Party is just like the Klan or Melissa Harris Perry talking about how the Tea Party is just like the Klan.

Bridgegate is a chance for MSNBC to leave racism behind for 5 minutes and do a one-hour special about New Jersey traffic. Oh wait…

It’s MSNBC, there’s no escape from racism. That means we need a disparate impact study on New Jersey traffic. Why does Chris Christie hate black people while Chris Hayes loves them?

Thus far MSNBC’s award-winning staff of whiny white kids in glasses have tackled Bridgegate as if Christie was a fat Nixon and they were journalists instead of failed Peace Corps volunteers.

Here’s a sample of MSNBC’s coverage of the greatest traffic story ever told.

Steve Kornacki answered your questions about “bridgegate”

The billion-dollar development at the center of ‘Bridgegate’

Conservatives pile on Christie over ‘bridgegate’

Christie’s marathon ‘bridgegate’ presser left questions unanswered

‘Bridgegate’ sees its first lawsuit

Roadmap to ‘Bridgegate’

Rachel Maddow Has an Alternate Theory of Christie’s “Bridgegate …

Scathing bridge complaint reached Christie’s staff

and…

‘Bridgegate’ draws little public interest

Little public interest? Go figure.

“As the media analyzes every angle of the story, a new poll reveals that Americans don’t really care about ‘Bridgegate.’”

They must be racist. Time to hit them with a one-hour special from that guy no one watches anyway. Here’s my pitch for MSNBC.

Did the Koch Brothers make up Benghazi to cover up Bridgegate?



TOPICS: Culture/Society; Government; News/Current Events; US: New Jersey
KEYWORDS: bridgegate; chrischristie; msnbc; newjersey; traffic
I wonder how many people are going to bother watching this...

Did I miss the hour special on Benghazi or the failure of obabacare, or maybe the one about how I can keep my doctor and insurance?

Right now Rachel Maddow is working on a little diorama of Fort Lee, NJ.

Only a “network” like MSNBC would have an hour to spare for this tripe. They can’t go any lower in the ratings and I’m sure that somebody’s paying them something to do this.

MSNBC doing the work that republicans will not do.

The good news here is the more press on Cristi, the less on anyone else. So far they have systematically tried to kill off the following:

Rubio
Cruz
Lee
Paul
along with warning shots over the bows of Haley, Walker, Jindal and anyone else they feel might be a threat. The absence of any warning shots or direct attacks is indicative of whom the GOP should not run.

Maybe they should have a one hour special about how all those "shovel ready" highway jobs caused endless backups and delays for ordinary citizens so a few well connected construction companies and their union workers could pocket some of the taxpayer's money.

I'm no fan of Gov. Christie, but is there really much of a comparison between a state government which creates one traffic jam as political payback and the federal government creating hundreds of traffic jams as a result of their political payback?

I've sat for hours in traffic with thousands of other people, all of us losing money, so that a half dozen union guys replacing a perfectly fine guard rail can get their $40 per hour.

Will this be before or after the one hour special on how Obama used the government shutdown to punish/hurt ordinary Americans?

They are just following White House orders. A certain percentage wants to believe the lie. The White House wants to make sure they have a lie to believe.

They would improve their ratings if they just showed the bridge for an hour.

Pray America is Waking

That might be what this is about and the $1 million or so dollars a day that’s taken in from the plus 100,000 vehicles a day that use the George Washington Bridge.

What better punishment for those that have a hand in the till than to sting their fingers for being naughty. Bet they won’t go into corruption that’s there but infer Christie is getting it all. But they will mention the revenue generation which everybody seems to forget that’s there.

“I wonder how many people are going to bother watching this...”

I wonder who in the hell will spend their advertising dollars to support this drivel — The usual madcow audience I suppose;

1) Snap on tools
2) Lifetime
3) Massengill
4) Prozac
5) Zoloft
6) Paxil

LOL

They are a self-parody.

Much like the old Soviet PRAVDA became its own parody.

I’m quite sure they’ll mention politicians who fly into Newark and close down major and surrounding roadways during rush hours so they can travel about...
