Skip to comments.Video: MSNBC Host Kicks Conservative Off the Air

The topic? Romney's decades-old alleged bullying, natch. And without a shred of irony, host Tamron Hall bullies conservative guest Tim Carney right off the air:
After fight with Tim Carney, MSNBC host Tamron Hall mutes mic
Hall was peeved that Carney had the audacity to call the media out on its "meta" narrative-building BS, so she got all huffy and cut his mic. For the record, Carney says he actually was addressing the issue he was booked to discuss:
@TPCarney: The question I was sent for the Romney bullying segment was "Does the story matter?" So I was answering it, not dodging.
I hope you stuck with the clip above to the bitter end, when Hall pulls up the shot of Carney to scold him again -- but with his microphone muted so he literally cannot respond. Yet he's the ingracious one, in her book. Bizarre. Meanwhile, I was over on Fox News discussing the Democrats' pickle in North Carolina. They've planned their convention in a state that they'll probably now lose in the fall; NC's gay marriage amendment just passed by an overwhelming margin, and now some liberals are calling for a boycott or relocation of the confab. I broke these issues down with Lefty Fox News contributor Sally Kohn and host Megyn Kelly. Our bit was much more jovial than the MSNBC showdown, but I'd still encourage you to watch to the very end for an enjoyable one-liner about the president's self regard:
Guy Benson speaks about NC Gay Marriage Convention
They have to control the story. If they can’t keep the sheep on message they will be in deep yoghurt with their supreme leaders in the DNC
I would characterize it as the hard left communists watch MSNBC, run of the mill left wing socialists watch CNN, and the middle watches Fox. Actual right wingers in America who believe in limited government, free markets, individual rights & following the constitution have no where to go on TV. So, they get their "news" from the Internet instead, and avoid the cable "news" propaganda channels that are little more than mouthpieces for rich "elites" running the two-party system.
What you said.
Considering that Fox's ratings are more than the other two combined, you're probably right.
Yeah, how did that happen?
"Affirmative action" doesn't explain it all, because if you want to "act affirmatively" and throw opportunities away, you can give them to the first wino or stoner who stumbles along.
Somebody picked Obama. Who did it, and why? I'm thinking that Indonesian passport and "MUSLIM" marked on it had a lot to do with it, as also did Frank Marshall Davis and his Communist Party connections in California.
Which is not to confuse, btw, really conservative Americans with "rightists" in the classical sense -- fascists and phalangists -- who probably don't have anything to read or agree with anywhere except perhaps Europa.com and Stormfront.
U.S. conservatives are "paleocons" not phalangists. Paleocons are anti-statist, along the lines of the late Murray Rothbard, who once called Wm. F. Buckley, Jr., a "totalitarian" for having made his peace with the idea that keeping our independence in the face of Soviet expansionism meant having to accept a large Defense Department and "military-industrial complex".
Agreed...some day, some citizen-journalist is going to do the due dilligence and look at Obama’s background...like the Kennedy assassination...this is one case the msm will not touch.
We still don’t know who Obama is.
Obama got into Harvard Law on the sponsorship of Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal. He was also helped by prominent members of the radical Left. He's been being groomed for great things since he was a teen.
