Video: MSNBC hosts now asking Democrats for autographs on air

posted at 2:41 pm on May 9, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via the Washington Free Beacon, it used to be that you’d tune into MSNBC to find the host handing a prominent Democrat a check. Now they show restraint, confining themselves to more traditional fanboy behavior. Consider that progress. And look: To repeat a point I’ve made a lot recently, all our side has ever asked of the media, really, is to show its cards. They can call themselves impartial if they act impartial, or they can go on being liberal hacks and cop to it. MSNBC and O’D chose honesty. Wouldn’t you rather watch this guy whitewash yesterday’s Benghazi hearings forthrightly than watch the “objective” LA Times spin the hearings away as some sort of tedious, he-said-she-said battle o’ the partisan talking points?

Speaking of which, take two minutes to read Erik Wemple’s review of what did and didn’t make it into O’Donnell’s Benghazi coverage last night about Hillary Clinton. If you’re a loyal MSNBC viewer who missed Greg Hicks’s testimony as it happened, you’re well informed this morning that the big revelation yesterday wasn’t this but rather … Hicks calling Hillary at 2 a.m. on the night of the attack to brief her about it. See, she is taking the 3 a.m. (well, 2 a.m.) phone call. Oh well. If you insist on getting all of your news from this channel, you deserve your ignorance.

I think Warren’s new bill is quite right on the mark though.

I’m up to my neck in student debt and may die with it around my neck due to the ridiculously high interest rates. Student tuition is a ponzi scam and it’s gone on long enough, it’s good for someone to crack down on this issue that may very well lead to the next economic bubble bursting.

During the Spurs-Warriors game, I flipped over during the commercial to Christine Hayes’ new show on MSDNC. I could stomach about 30 seconds of him and Rep. Baloney before I had to change the channel. Even Ed Schultz was more watchable than that.

I had read that Chris Hayes’ lead in at 7pm has very low ratings and has been blamed for bringing even lower the ratings of Maddow and ODonnell. They were all doing better with Special Ed.

I watch Hayes almost every night, certainly over OReally?, because he’s supposed to be the smart one I guess. He certainly is less toxic than the others and its amusing to just see him struggle. I could probably have a beer with him and disagree with everything he says and more importantly, not throw up.

‘Cuz someone held a gun to your head to make you sign those loans. So, obviously, it’s the banks’ fault. Riiiight?

BTW, the Federal government took over the student loan biz in Obamacare. Government interference is also responsible for education inflation, in large part. Education inflation is higher than healthcare inflation.

Education has been increasing ever since the government got involved in the student loan business and I notice that the Left never complains about Big Ed.

The schools can jack up tuition knowing that they will get their money. The government knows that it will get repaid (or the banks know when we are talking about private student loans) because school loans ARE NOT DISCHARGEABLE IN BANKRUPTCY.

If Big Ed cared about the students, it would lower prices or give more scholarships. Harvard has around $25 billion in its endowment fund. Most private schools have large endowment funds and could provide free education for all of their students for decades, but you’ll notice that those Marxist administrators and professors never suggest that.

It is precisely because of government’s interference in the market that healthcare and education inflation has skyrocketed.

No. You’re whining about your own decisions and claiming that you are entitled to some relief from your stupidity. We don’t even get any relief from your stupidity.

I still think for future students, they should lower tuition interest.

nonpartisan on May 9, 2013 at 3:08 PM

If future students think the rate is too high then they should not borrow it. They can go to cheaper schools and pay for it themselves.

No one has a “right” to low loan rates. That sort of idiotic and demented thinking is what brought us the credit crisis. You lefties LOVE to pervert the debt markets. Partly it’s because you are mind-numbing idiots and partly it’s because you are jaw-dropping douchebags.

The only reason college costs so much (and the prices are beyond insane) is because you and yours have had government muck around and drive all the prices up – which is the left’s favorite sport. You people have government rain money down to jack up college costs and then you force affirmative action in order to water down those ultra-expensive (but worthless) college degrees.

You people do nothing but raise entropy everywhere you go and in everything you touch.

I’m not asking for a handout from you

I’m asking that I pay the same interest rate to borrow that big banks do

nonpartisan on May 9, 2013 at 2:56 PM

Do you have the same amount of capital as the “big banks”?

Mitoch55 on May 9, 2013 at 3:02 PM

Really. The non-brain numbnut expects a low rate to pay for his skooling or Yugo struggle-buggy as some big time lender gets for borrowing a billion or two (with actual collateral). It must be that fake Harvard edyukayshun kicking in that he’s always bragging about…

He’s filling out the paperwork to get a government loan to study it.

ThePrimordialOrderedPair on May 9, 2013 at 3:16 PM

I guess you should have read your loan documents before signing them.

HiJack on May 9, 2013 at 3:15 PM

The documents were in English . They should have been in Gibberish !

And yet, you couldn’t wait to vote for the idiot who has run the economy into the ground?
Yes we can!
Go cry elsewhere…I didn’t take one cent of financial aid, I just worked my butt off while I was in school.

lol, if you’re implying I voted for Obama, I didn’t.

nonpartisan on May 9, 2013 at 3:10 PM

Liar.
You sure do lick his boots enough.

I used to think pizza, snacks, and Captain Crunch should be free.
Then I grew up.

“Video: MSNBC hosts now asking Democrats for autographs on air”
…ya gotta admit, that a whole lot more dignified than their previous actions in asking the d-cRAT socialist politicians to drop their pants so they could kiss their butts.

TeaPartyNation on May 9, 2013 at 3:18 PM

charging a ridiculous interest rate just makes it harder for these people to pay off the loans, and in the long-term will create another crisis of sorts

nonpartisan on May 9, 2013 at 3:14 PM

7% isn’t a lot.
30%, sure, but not 7%

Well, maybe I misunderstood you, NP. I guess you should have read your loan documents before signing them.

HiJack on May 9, 2013 at 3:15 PM

But, but, those tuition assistance lenders are predators! They preyed on the dumbest and, well, the dumbest among us! ///

HornetSting on May 9, 2013 at 3:19 PM

I don’t always talk to children deep in debt, in order to get that coveted Poli Sci Degree, but when I do, I ask them to super size my order.

MNHawk that is nicely done.

DanMan on May 9, 2013 at 3:20 PM

I am dood, relax. I still think for future students, they should lower tuition interest.

nonpartisan on May 9, 2013 at 3:08 PM

Oh, I’m relaxed. Paid off my loans years ago. Without complaint.
Your beef should be with the actual loan amount and not the interest.
In fact, lower interest rates for student loans will only cause the cost of tuition to go up FASTER. Easy come, easy go.
