MSNBC Mocks NY Times, Wash Post for Lack of IRS Coverage (VIDEO)
Washington Free Beacon ^ | June 24 2014 | Washington Free Beacon

Posted on 06/24/2014 7:09:32 AM PDT by PoloSec

Morning Joe’s Joe Scarborough slammed the New York Times Tuesday for running a story about another possible Chris Christie bridge scandal and choosing not to run a front page story on the latest IRS targeting scandal developments.

“Is it possible that the New York Times and Washington Post are not putting on the front page of their newspapers the fact that an internal investigation has been launched against the IRS on the most shady behavior, and yet they put the Pulaski sky bridge whatever on page A-1?” Scarborough asked. “This is garbage.”

Panelist Nicolle Wallace jokingly searched for IRS coverage and found it located on A19 of the Times.

This led Scarborough to erupt even further, “This is why conservatives don’t trust national newspapers. It’s why they don’t trust broadcast news. There’s a double standard and you can see it on every broadcast. You can see it on the front page of every major newspaper. This is why we don’t trust the national news outlets, because they are so biased and slanted. It’s not the news that they run, even though this is a joke of a story to put on the front page here. It’s the stories they don’t run. It’s the omissions, the acts of omissions when Democrats are in power. It’s stunning.”

That’s a surprise. I guess this is MSNBC’s nod to being “fair and balanced.”

“This is why conservatives don’t trust national newspapers. ...

“This is why AMERICANS OF ALL POLITICAL PERSUASIONS don’t trust national newspapers. Sure, some like the papers but everyone knows they're completely one sided.

Don’t read their papers, link to their websites, watch their programs. That is the only influence us little people have.

Personally, I don’t have time for lies & omissions.

Yep. I had a theory several years ago that as our country shows a lack of resolve internationally the ones at greatest risk are our “small allies” like Israel and SK. But then the Bundy ranch thing happened. And I realized that there was a flip side to that coin: The same thing happens domestically.

He has proven that he is an empty suit in every way. It means it is harder to control through fear. And once those that glom onto him strictly because they think he’s the “alpha dog”, as they realize he’s not, will probably be his most potent enemies.

And as the days click away toward January of 2017, they will grow in numbers, exponentially so.

I watched the show at the gym this morning.

This is Scarborough’s quarterly, perhaps semi-annual, breast-beating session over how the liberal press mistreats conservatives-—he presents himself as the lone voice of sanity, all the while shuckin’ and grinnin’ and playing the jackass, which is his fundamental self.

Make no mistake the rest of the show was dedicated to emphasizing that none of this nonsense reached the White House, that conservatives are almost always over the top, that Bush and Cheney are to blame for most everything, and repeated sneering references to Chris McDaniel and how “sketchy” he is, and how sterling and stalwart and upright Thad Cochrane is by comparison.

All of it is an act for Scarborough, a weird junky-like riff, especially when he gets amped up as he did today.

‘Course I would be twitchy and scattered too if I had the kind of dishonesty, pain, betrayal and even death on my resume as does he.

“...they are so biased and slanted...when Democrats are in power. It’s stunning.”

How are dems in power?

Does he mean the White House, or the Senate?

He’s so... What does he think happens when they are not in power?

Does he think the NYT doesn’t let up?

Does he want people to think the NYT does the same for republicans or conservatives?

The New York Times and the Washington Post are not even in the same UNIVERSE as news.

They are strictly Propaganda Channels for the Communist Democrats.

Maybe not a surprise if they are looking to support Warren because Hillary is too conservative.

There has to be an end game here. The left is cunning, and unshakable in their resolve. MSNBC would never leave the reservation without permission. I don’t know what game plan is, but I can tell you, MSNBC will not intentionally damage the boy king without some sort of plan to advance the liberal agenda.

“The media today does not merit protection. Let’s abolish the First Amendment as it pertains to the press.”

At this point, what difference would it make?

What's important:

The bank is being robbed, people are being held hostage, while down the block a truck hauling 20,000 of gas has tipped over and the gas has caught fire setting two blocks of businesses ablaze.

What the limps cover:

The police and fire departments descended on a hot dog vendor because people complained he was burning the hot dogs and the smoke irritated them as they walked by.

Joe is an out-front representative of MSNBC. Let’s see if he issues a retraction or “clarification”. If not, the first statement stands.

Getting justifiably called ‘biased’ by MSNBC is like getting justifiably called ‘ugly’ by Rosa DeLauro.

That's the plan, but I don't think it will work.

She was SOS as the mid-east barreled towards even more chaos, and proved herself as clueless as her boss.

In 2012 leftist Warren Buffet purchased the Media General chain of local newspapers. In 2013 leftist billionaire Jeff Bezos purchased the Washington Post. In 2013, Comcast took full control of NBC. Wealthy Comcast CEO Brian Roberts is a supporter of progressive causes and golfing buddy of Barack Obama.

Progressives control the media in this country and therefore exercise substantial control over what the American people learn about government and politics.

If the Koch brothers are truly spending heavily to support conservative political causes it would see there is no better way for them to spend their money than to buy one or more mainstream media organs such as CNN, The New York Times, Fox or CBS.
