... Americans in vast numbers are abandoning cable news networks because of stunts like this. Throughout the interview the host badgers and belittles Schiff who is barely able to open his mouth before the host interrupts him again.

MSNBC: the place for politics?

Maybe they should change that to:

It’s hard to tell the difference between the news shows and the Jerry Springer Show. At least Jerry admits it’s crap he’s selling.

I could only watch 2 minutes of it. I can’t take Lawrence O’Donnell. He asks the questions and answers them himself. Peter Schiff gets very little speech time.

Pointless interview.

won't watch odonnell either. he's unhinged and irrational (perfect for msnbc).

one can only conclude that Mr. Schiff is right in whatever position he took.

Check out the YouTube video:

Peter Schiff Was Right 2006-2007

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2I0QN-FYkpw

Peter Schiff knew what was going to happen to the US economy, Chris Dodd did not.

MSNBC hates Peter Schiff with a passion because he has been proven correct about the economy. He is also on the sh*t list of Bernanke, Greenspan, Soros and those nasty, arrogant supporters of Obama and his $ 25 Trillion bailout.

I guarantee the Fed is funneling money to Peter Schiff's political enemies. And possibly the media. Shills are for sale. Look at how they openly attacked me in 2004, 2005 and 2006 because I exposed hyper-inflated real estate. Shills and trolls act covertly and maliciously. They do a lot of damage because nobody calls them to account.

Also - Schiff has his eyes on a bigger prize:

Peter Schiff is Running for the U.S. Senate

Lawrence O’Donnell is the poster child for the self-absorbed liberal elite. They think they know what is best for the ignorant masses. My hope is that this guy gets the thrashing he truly deserves.

Sphincter is too nice, as is "interviewer." The Obersturmfuhrer is a flaming asshole. Schiff should have walked around the desk and mule-kicked him in the nuts.

I, and I imagine many others, would like to know what the heck is going on at the Federal Reserve. Do they have a clue?

Alan Grayson asked Ben Bernanke which foreigners got the fed’s $500 billion dollars.

Ben Bernanke replied “I don’t know.”

Somebody suggested conservatives boycott the Sunday morning shows and I disagreed about leaving the battlefield.

In the case of MSNBC, NOBODY watches anyway, so a boycott is likely to expedite the demise of some of these moonbats.

I made it to 2:15.
Remember that Larry “Butt-Boy” O’Donnell went ballistic on John O’Neil, of the “Swift-Boaters”.
He’s the psychotic alter-ego of Prissy Matthews.

It’s unreal and a perfect example of the liberals mind. When confronted with a different idea than his own, he psychologically and viscerally rejects the possibility that there could be any merit. This from the self-proclaimed leaders and standard bearers of tolerance. Liberals don’t like ideas; they like power and use ideas soley to achieve power.

Lawrence O’Dumbbell is ****. Always has been. Then again conservatives who go on MSNBC should know what’s coming to them. If they’re dumb enough to go on that crap network...maybe they’ll learn.

I think I posted a link to that YouTube clip myself. I noted at the time Bernanke was nervous and twitchy and was obviously lying to Congress. Also noted the chambers were almost empty on the representative side. Helicopter Ben showed up with lots of supporters, though.

Lying liars ought to be arrested and marched in bright orange jumpsuits in front of a hanging judge.

Have you ever read the message boards on a lib website? It’s all the same opinion, over and over. No honest debate about things—it’s not tolerated. It’s like they’re afraid of ideas different from their own.

MzNBC... that's the estrogen/testosterone battle channel isn't it? Those employed there that don't have it, want it, those that think they have it, don't.

I've read that the above is also gender neutral.

As to the reportage... they probably had better numbers with IMUS and more honesty.

Larry (Lawrence) O'Donnell... He still thinks that his success or ability to pay his bills allows him to dictate how we should live

Today in America being right in forecasting what has and will happen with the economy means nothing. You most set the right tone and you must not make the annotated look like stupid fools. Peter Schiff does both. He comes up with sound, reasoned forecasts that prove correct. He does this by not paying an deference to the happy talk crowd in government and the media. Then he has the never to think that because he was right he should get credit for it!

It is no longer about being right. It is about being in the right group. Anyway the interview had only one purpose as far as MSNBC was concerned. To give Dodd a sound bite for a TV spot.

O’Donnell is all of those things. I can never forget his hateful, extended and over the top rant against the Swift Boat Veteran leader. He kept shouting “Liar” and just went berserk/crazy on air. Yet they keep booking him. He is clearly unbalanced.

I sent a donation to Schiff’s campaign last night, then I emailed the Ed Show to thank them for making me aware that Schiff was considering running.

I informed them of my donation and told them I was looking forward to having a fully functional brain in the government. I also said they might want to try hiring one to interview future guests.

People who agree to appear with the goons on OMSNBC or with others like Miss Crissy must be well paid for their time. Otherwise, what do they think they will accomplish by appearing with those punks?

To be fair, Peter should have been more versed on some GOP Health Care legislation, so he could shove it in the POS’s face.

Typical jacka$$ PMSNBC crap! The only reason why they are still in business is because the Feds gave G.E. a trillion dollar contract over the next 10 years. If they did not have that, then they would already be out of business.

Agreed. Their greatest fear is a different idea; they aren't afraid of tyranny or enemies of the US. But an opinion different than their own is a horribly frightful thing.

They lack the confidence to discuss civilly the merits of their own opinions and lash out with insults at people who think differently. They always attack the intellect and motives of those whom they do not agree with. It's so interesting too that these progressives see no problem with proclaiming themselves as perfect models of tolerance. They remind me of the saying that there are only innocent men in prison (in their minds, of course). With liberals we now have the least tolerant people claiming they favor diversity! We have people who call anyone who doesn't agree with them a fascist, yet they, well they're the high priests of pluralism, a special pluralism where we all agree.

Their greatest fear is that people will realize that everything proposed by Democrats requires massive transfers of wealth before anyone realizes it was done for votes and power rather than the general welfare.
