MSNBC: Tasteless Ronan Farrow Compares War Hero's Struggles to Congressional Bickering

Posted on 01/31/2014 12:30:07 PM PST by chessplayer

What is wrong with the hosts at MSNBC? Ronan Farrow, who will begin anchoring a network program on February 24, made a tasteless joke on Tuesday night, comparing war hero Cory Remsburg's struggles to that of politicians in Congress. Farrow tweeted, "Cory 'struggles on the left side.' Congress relates.'"

Farrow has not apologized for the tweet

On Wednesday, political reporter Mark Murray, whose wife works in the Obama administration, compared Remsburg's struggle to that of the President: "Obama's ending on Remsburg wasn't just a story about America -- it also was a story about Obama.

The left excoriates Fox News all the time. MSNBC engages in more irresponsible journalistic behavior in one week than Fox News has in their entire history, and that includes Shepard Smith’s J-Lo comment.

Remember his quote a few months ago on CNN? “Hillary Clinton has the kind of honesty the public craves”.. And supposedly he is smart, got his degrees early etc which says a lot about education in this country. “Smart” is the new retarded.

Something really stinks in Denmark about this kid. But then he was raised by a single parent who changed his name several times (as she’s done with many of her kids), and now claims he was fathered by a different father - which has been totally debunked, by the way.

If he’s so smart, why isn’t he teaching physics at MIT, or something? Instead of involving himself in a soft topic like “human rights”? He’s a fraud.

And no matter how many times they are forced to “apologize,” they just keep on pushing the envelope.

“Cory ‘struggles on the left side.’ Congress relates.’”

I find that more offensive than the Cheerios Incident, to be honest. I’m to the point where I’m used to idiot leftists and their presumptions of racism about conservatives. Making glib about a wounded veteran’s injuries, though...that’s truly the act of scum.

Wow. I just looked him up on Wikipedia.

It appears he’s the kid Howard Stern used to call “Suitcase” back in the 1990s when he was talking about the original Woody Allen / Mia Farrow scandal.

He’s a pretty boy and a hardcore leftist so of course the Treason party is going to promote the living hell out him then he will run for office, absolutely 1000% guaranteed.

I suspect this kid was promoted throughout his “career” due to the Peter Principle and the fact that he was, is and always will be Woody Allen’s kid. No one can underestimate the awe that stupid elites have for the Woodman. Perhaps this is why his mother suddenly started talking about Sinatra - a way to throw people off course as to the only reason this kid would get a job at a major network.

Big time. Wonder what Ol’ Blue Eyes would say to him, today, about this loser’s nitwit comments/stance.

Another reason why NBC is at the end of the most trusted list.

Leftist Media Scumbags ping.

Of course, it’s okay to mock Cory — he joined up at age 18, never went to college, and GOT STUCK IN IRAQ.

Thanks chessplayer.

Let's see.... What if someone said Ronan Farrow's mother was a two bit whore. Then profusely apologized saying he didn't mean to say she did it for twenty-five cents - or that she kept change for a fifty dollar bill on her... but that he meant to say she was a bore. A bore - not a whore... slip of the tongue... (no pun intended)

Then the person wanted to 'apologize' on all the cable networks... throwing in new things he 'felt sorry for'..

I think MSNBC is so filled with hate they can't stop themselves from expressing it. NBC will go down with them... it's a shame... Anyhow I'm really sorry if Ronan took offense at me using the example of his mother to make this understandable.

It's a new low... but I'll bet within a few months MSNBC will come up with something more insulting. It's who they are...
