CNBC Democrat telethon continues today

Posted on 11/01/2006 5:56:25 AM PST by ElRushbo

CNBC at it again today. Now defending Kerry for his slanderous comments. CNBC playing it out as a "botched joke" or at worst a "poor statement"! Again, nothing to do with business or the markets. The are relentless in these past few days. Anything they can do to support the democrats.

This whole week is one big infomercial for the dems on all MSM tv, newspaper, and radio stations.

CNBC is supposed to be neuteral, but as you can see this week, NBC execs are the ones who ultimately will tell them what politicians they will support.

All the networks are nothing but Democrat propaganda. If the Dems win and screw things up, we need to hold the media's feet to the fire. Give them their share of the blame. Teach them a lesson.

And I'll add that Joe Kernen is no fan of Kerry, as his comments indicated. Becky Quick, on the other hand...not so clear.

Ill never forget-- the night of the 04 election when everyone thought Kerry had won: The SP futures were tanking hard...down huge and the media outlets were reporting "Market falls off election uncertainty" !!! I couldnt believe what i heard... it was clearly tanking because it was basically announced that Kerry had won and everyone in the financial sector knows what that means. Of course, when the polls showed Bush taking Ohio and Florida, the market rallied massively and the next day was a big up day. The media is disgusting.

We go to war with what a leading Democrat said, NOT what he wished he had said and NOT what he wanted to say.

Al Jazeera prints only his actual words to rally those who are intent on killing our troops.

His legislative career. ;-P

He claims that the second sentence was supposed to be "If you don't, you end up getting us stuck in Iraq", which means it would have been a dig at President Bush.

"If you don't, you end up getting us stuck in Iraq"

That would have worked better...but you'd think he would have caught that omission right when he said it...if that is what he meant. It is akin to missing that one said n*gg*r when they meant to say black person.

Yeah, but put "Let's talk about education" directly in front of that statement, and see if it makes any sense that it's a slur against Bush. NO WAY!

I find these dem lovefests on MSNBC and CNBC totally funny. Just msm pump up the vote for themselves. No republican is watching and most of the dummycrats i know that are home to watch are looking at soaps, game shows and Jerry Springer. In fact, they embarass theirselves.

I just watched Tony Snow on Squawk Box. He was excellent as usual. But they did play Kerry's original quote and some snippets from his rant during the press conference. Joe Kern even brought up the Yale GPA comparison.

This was actually the first time I saw the video personally. HE WAS NOT TELLING A JOKE. If you look at his face while he's talking (ugh!), there is no hint whatsoever that he thinks he is making a comment in jest. What a lying jerk.

Well, back to hanging out with my dumb friends.

Thanks,

It sounded to me like cnbcBS was actually turning the Kerry comments around and using them to attack Bush. They asked SNOW question after question like, "is this what you will be focusing on the next 6 days?" or "Why not talk about this issues"... like they wanted to take the focus off Limbaugh and get back to this issues. HA

A pure waste of time. As we are seeing the the ongoing Dinosaur Media Watch, even when viewers or readers flee for the exits in disgust, liberals just cannot stop being liberal. It is a way of processing information, a way of thinking, a way of life, a world-view. They would rather die than change.

Even CNN cannot bring itself to change. It put on Glenn Beck, but as a token to non-liberals. That was where any changes stopped. There has not been any change to the tone, temperment, or orientation of the general news coverage.

A pure waste of time? Not hardly.

If it weren't for the MSM, we'd never lose an election. They know it. The Dems know it. The media is the only place we can force a change, because of one thing: Money.

You're right, the liberals would rather die than change. But somewhere in the chain of command, there's a CEO, a COB and a Board that has to answer to shareholders.

Fox News has provided a model for success.

CNBC caters to the "investor class" which liberals say are the rich, Republicans.

I own an ad agency. Most of my clients are Republicans. We put their ad placements on Fox News 2-1. CNBC has been a good choice, but it won't take long to alienate those advertisers.

Hey - I agree with you. Kerry is an insufferable anus (to be polite) who has no business speaking out about either education/intelligence or the military.

I was just reporting Kerry's claims.

Groundpounder, huh? I must admit I had it easier - I could sit in a heated/cooled van 150 feet away from a high-powered missile-attracting radar. PATRIOT system...

Oh well, there's good and bad in everything.

Thank you for your service, Major.

I, for one, am disturbed that the media is leaving out that important statement he made RIGHT before the slur against the troops. They are leaving room for people to believe it really was a big mistake - not that anyone with a brain could believe that!

It is certainly not. Not as bad as CNN, CBS or the other alphabet stations, but there is a definite tilt to the left, especially with a few of their talking heads.

Joke? What part of "I apologize to no one" in a sneering, condescending voice is a joke?
