MSNBC’s Chris Hayes On US Veterans Killed in the Line of Duty: “I feel uncomfortable about the word ‘hero’…”

In May of 2012, I wrote a short Op-Ed addressing some truly inane comments by an MSNBC television host named Chris Hayes. In concert with Memorial Day, he and his panel were discussing how inappropriate it is for us to label military personnel killed in the line of duty as “heroes.” Here is what I wrote: ~~~~~ I come from a family with a proud military history. My father was a Leatherneck in WWII, seeing heavy action in the South Pacific. He was in the invasion of Okinawa and stood awestruck one August morning when he saw that mushroom cloud […]

MSNBC Show Featuring Ronan Farrow Loses in Ratings to a Golden Girls Rerun

The last first run episode of the Golden Girls ran in 1992.  However, it still has more viewers than MSNBC, or at least, Ronan Farrow’s show.  Weasel Zippers has more in Ronan Farrow’s MSNBC failure… Via NYDN: Ronan Farrow’s MSNBC talk show is facing cancellation amid poor ratings, sources exclusively tell Confidenti@l. Farrow, 28 — the opinionated, blue-eyed son of actress Mia Farrow and either Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra (even Farrow’s not sure which) — has been a disaster for MSNBC. The channel took the frequent cable-show guest and handed him his own program, “Ronan Farrow Daily,” which premiered […]

A Third Party Perspective

Often times we hear that we’re too close to something to be able to be objective enough to evaluate it rationally. Now before I go much further, lets make sure that we all know who I’m speaking of. I’m not talking about our main stream media, MSNBC, CNN or the plethora of far left websites, such as DailyKOS, HuffPo, etc… No, I’m talking about those that are closer to the center of the political spectrum. The folks that possibly bought into Hope & Change in ’08 and maybe sat home in ’12. Back in ’08, candidate Obama sounded pretty centrist. […]

Dispatches From The Deep Freeze

“Just because it snows in winter, doesn’t mean the planet isn’t getting warmer.” – Al Sharpton “Progressives,” besides being some of the world’s nastiest people, are some of the dumbest — to be expected in a group where ideological psychopathy will assassinate common sense the first chance it gets.  And leading the ever-shrieking Reality Deniers are the Agenda-Driven Liars, serial prevaricators like Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, every other elected Democrat, and assorted “community” loudmouths like the “Reverend” Al Sharpton, the aging agitator from the Big Apple who’s parlayed a lengthy career as a professional race hustler into a lucrative gig […]

What Has Happened To The Once Mighty Peacock?

The executives and powers that be over at 30 Rockefeller Plaza have evidently never heard that old adage, when you find yourself in a hole – STOP DIGGING!! What has happened to the network that brought us such sterling news people as, Hugh Downs, Tom Brokaw, Tim Russert, David Brinkley, Jessica Savitch, John Chancellor and Stone Phillips? The list of NBC’s faux pas keeps growing and growing with each passing day, it seems. Let’s recap, shall we? (and these are just the ones this author remembers) * MSNBC television host Ed Shultz via his radio show – – calls radio […]

The Famous Mr. Ed

A horse is a horse, of course, of course, And no one can talk to a horse of course That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mr. Ed. Go right to the source and ask the horse He’ll give you the answer that you’ll endorse. He’s always on a steady course. Talk to Mr. Ed. Once a horse’s ass, always a horse’s ass.  The Daley Gator elucidates: Suddenly, After Pimping Class Envy Rhetoric For Years, Ed Schultz Hates Class Envy Hypocrisy much Ed? The Angriest Man on TV™ gets paid big bucks for his act as a […]

MSNBC Panel: Obama a “Disappointment”

Someone must have been asleep at the switch in the control room at MSNBC.  They accidentally broadcast people being critical of Obama, most certainly causing severe nausea and cognitive dissonance among the three viewers that were tuned in at that time.  Chicks on the Right has more… I’m sure someone over there got a call form the administration to make their minds right, or to order someone lobotomized…or something like that.

Martin Bashir Resigns From MSNBC: And Nothing of Value was Lost

In a move that will likely disappoint the several viewers that tune into MSNBC on a daily basis. Martin Bashir has submitted his resignation.  Schadenfreude commences over at The Other McCain… When you think about all the evil things the liberal media have said about Sarah Palin over the years, you know it took a special kind of stupid for Martin Bashir to say something so grossly offensive he had to resign from MSNBC because of it: “Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the President of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation. It is my sincere hope that all […]

Ex-MSNBC Talking Head, Dylan Ratigan Loses His Plan Due to ObamaCare

MSNBC veteran and Conservative basher, Dylan Ratigan, lost his plan due to ObamaCare… Poor Dylan.  Too bad no one watched his show on the network no one watches.

Constitution is Problem, so Says Chris Hayes of MSNBC

Oh, that pesky separation of powers, limited government and freedom stuff all interfere with our nanny state!  That might as well be the translation, as Chris Hayes of MSNBC took to the camera, and spewed regressive nonsense at the handful of viewers that bother to watch. And they wonder why no one watches?

Rachel Maddow has Even Less Viewers, Ratings Down Nearly 50% From Same Time Last Year

“Worst ratings ever,” says Weasel Zippers… Via WFB: MSNBC’s ratings tumble continued with a poor August showing, with some programs seeing nearly a 50-percent drop in viewership from a year ago, TV Newser reports. Among the lowlights were the worst showings yet by its leading program The Rachel Maddow Show, with 43 percent and 47 percent drops in total viewers and the 25-54 demographic, respectively, and 40- and 42-percent drops in the same areas for The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell. [...] In primetime, “The Rachel Maddow Show” posted all-time low ratings in total and demo viewers, down -43% and -47%, respectively. “The Last […]

Has MSNBC Turned on #FreeKate?

I’m going to say this for the first time in my life, and it will likely be the last… I agree with something that was said on MSNBC. In fact, I agree with an ENTIRE SEGMENT that was broadcast on MSNBC. And yes, surprisingly, the Earth has not been flung off it’s axis, but dang, MSNBC engaged in a random act of real journalism, and actually told the truth.  Take a look for yourself!

Vintage Educational Film on Propaganda

I would think that the folks over at MSNBC has studied this one well.  Take a look that this educational film about propaganda, and see what you think! Take this, throw in some Alinsky, and you have a programming guide for MSNBC!

MSM Death Watch: MSNBC Losing Audience, Now Behind CNN

In the decay of the MSM, MSNBC is now taking the brunt of the damage.  It would seem that covering for the Obama Administration and blaming every single issue on Earth on racism is causing people to tune out in droves.  Newsbusters has more… The ratings from April through June brought good news for the dominant Fox News Channel, the resurgent Cable News Network and HLN — which was previously known as the Headline Network — but that period saw MSNBC deliver its worst quarterly prime-time showing among total viewers and adults from 25 to 54 years of age since […]

MSNBC Talking Head, Melissa Harris-Perry, States Islam Had Nothing to do Muslim Bombers

OK, the lefties wanted the Boston Marathon Bombers to be white, so they could use it as an example of racism and “privilege.”  Then, so they thought, they could use it to push their agenda.  In other words, they wanted to use a crime to smear all white people, and justify a massive federal power grab.  But, when the perpetrators turned out to be Muslims, race and religion are suddenly not relevant?  That’s the case, according the Melissa Harris-Perry of MSNBC.  The fact that they were Muslims, and that they older, deceased brother reportedly visited a radical imam SIX TIMES […]

In Times of Crisis, People Turn on the News, and Avoid MSNBC

When something terrible happens, people turn to the news.  But, it appears that MSNBC is not the place to which to turn.  During last week’s Boston Marathon Bombing crisis.  People turned to the news.  However, it was FOX, and to a lesser degree, CNN, that viewers trusted.  MSNBC was not in the equation.  Newsbusters has more… TVByTheNumbers.com shared data Friday (through Thursday): 4-DAY AVERAGE TOTAL DAY FNC: 1,647,000 total viewers (421,000 in the demo) CNN: 1,048,000 total viewers (403,000 in the demo) MSNBC: 515,000 total viewers (162,000 in the demo)   4-DAY AVERAGE PRIMETIME FNC: 2,783,000 total viewers (682,000 in […]

MSNBC Talking Head Melissa Harris-Perry: All Your Children are Belong to Us

I think it’s getting even more amazing for the regressives in that they are slipping more and more.  And, in that slippage, they’re letting out more and more of their ideas, and they don’t even get that it’s the most totalitarian drivel.  I guess if you live in the unreality bubble, it’s a matter of time before you slip and think that tyranny is the normal state of man. In the latest example of regressive truth slippage, we have Melissa Harris-Perry, who happens to think that all of your children are belong to us.  MRC has the video… Now, this […]

MSNBC Poll: 78% of Their Viewers Favor Targeted Killing of Americans

It would seem that our most regressive TV network, MSNBC, has the more regressive viewers.  In a recent poll, 78% of their viewers favor the targeted killing of Americans.  Here is the story, from the Daley Gator, via Weasel Zippers… Frankly, I think that his means two things… 1.  Like most regressives, the typical MSNBC viewer has no set morality.  Their ethics are situational.  So, when some are targeted, and they think that the people being targeted are their political adversaries, using drones to wipe them out is perfectly OK.  However, should those drones ever be used against regressives, the […]

MSNBC Caught Selectively Editing Video: Volume 7954

OK, the number is a wee bit of an exaggeration, but probably not by much.  It seems that MSNBC, and other news outlets, were caught selectively editing  footage to show that a parent of a Sandy Hook victim was heckled at a public hearing.  Nice Deb has the story and footage… First off , here is the MSNBC video… Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy Now, here is what really happened… He wasn’t heckled AT ALL, as Treacher and everyone else on the planet who has seen the complete video, can see: He asked […]

Romney Donates to Sandy Victims: MSNBC Says it’s Terrible

The media bias is so bad, that  Mitt Romney can use his campaign to collect donations for the people affected by Sandy, and MSNBC will still find fault with it.  Newsbusters has the video… So, it doesn’t matter what Romney does, it’ll always be wrong. Kinda like when everything negative that happens is George W. Bush’s fault. H/T:  The Daley Gator via Gateway Pundit
