Green Room

RFK Jr: This country is divided because the right wing controls American media

posted at 1:45 pm on December 8, 2012 by

Via Newsbusters. Just to show you how far out Junior is, when Gallup polled Americans on media bias last year they couldn’t get even a plurality of Democrats to agree that the media skews too far right. Dems split evenly, 20/20, between “too liberal” and “too conservative.” (Independents split 50/13.) The only group that agreed on balance that the media is too conservative was — ta da — liberals, and even in that case only 37 percent agreed. Fully 16 percent of them thought the media was, er, too liberal.

What this guy really wants isn’t less “division” but a mainstream left-wing propaganda outlet that’s every bit as overtly activist as the left’s caricature of Fox News. (Bonus fun fact: His brother works for Fox.) Luckily for him, that niche is being filled, and then some. Exit question: If conservative talk radio dominates the Republican mind, how’d we end up with McCain and Romney as the last two GOP nominees?

Junior must be back on drugs again.
Wethal on December 8, 2012 at 2:41 PM

Back?
Again?

Has he ever NOT been, at any time in the last 30 years?

LegendHasIt on December 8, 2012 at 9:56 PM

Obviously, MSNBC just doesn’t really matter at al.

J_Crater on December 8, 2012 at 10:32 PM

Maybe you have to be on drugs to see the vast right wing media.

RFK Jr: This country is divided because the right wing controls American media

Yeah yeah, whatever dipshit. A burning question to me is why no Kennedy ever goes to the dark side and gets conservative? Because there are a whole lot of examples the other way.

arnold ziffel on December 8, 2012 at 11:51 PM

JFK would now be considered a right wing conservative.

profitsbeard on December 9, 2012 at 12:56 AM

Not much I can add about this psycho, except I feel sorry for his kids and for any woman he happens to be abusing now.

juliesa on December 9, 2012 at 7:31 AM

The Kennedy seed after JFK has shown a rapidly shortening half-life.

The only thing Robert Jr. does well is mimic his uncle’s quavering voice. He should have given Kerry lessons.

…I see the Kennedy’s still have a drinking and drug problem!

KOOLAID2 on December 9, 2012 at 10:15 AM

Didn’t RFK Jr. drive his late wife to kill herself? He’s a monster.

Punchenko on December 9, 2012 at 10:26 AM

And why do the voters repeatedly pull the lever for this genius?

“This latest example of crony capitalism at taxpayer expense involves a company named BrightSource whose largest shareholder is none other than Robert Kennedy Jr. But the ties to the Democrat party do not end there. One of Robert Kennedy’s employees was a person named Sanjay Wagle.

Sanjay Wagle was a top fundraiser for Barack Obama in 2008 and he was rewarded for his efforts with a position in the energy Department. Care to guess what his job was in the department? He was an adviser on energy grants. Perfect!

“BrightSource touted the Ivanpah project as a green jobs creator. Yet as its own website reveals, the thermal solar plant will only create 1,400 jobs at its peak construction and 650 jobs annually thereafter. Even using the peak estimate of 1,400 jobs, that works out to a cost to taxpayers of $1 million per job created.”

That’s all you need to know about that ass. He robs from the middle class for his bullshit visions.

Bobby & Ethel had so many, I get them confused. Is he the one whose wife killed herself earlier this year or is it another one? I watched a bit of it, he sounds like he’s high and/or drunk.

carolt2 on December 9, 2012 at 2:53 PM

Being a coke addict and a drunk apparently makes this guy real smart.

pat on December 9, 2012 at 4:46 PM

the media only seems liberal

that’s the vast right wing conspiracy

Slade73 on December 9, 2012 at 5:01 PM

I feel sorry for his kids and for any woman he happens to be abusing now.

juliesa on December 9, 2012 at 7:31 AM

I feel sorry for the kids, but I can’t work up much sympathy for the girlfriend(s). After the way he treated the last wife (both before and after her death), no woman in her right mind should be willing to have anything to do with him.

AZCoyote on December 9, 2012 at 6:13 PM

The Kennedy gene pool dropped off the cliff with RFK jr and Caroline turning out to be babbling fools. If their names weren’t Kennedy, they would be barefoot, half naked, eating out of garbage cans in an alley in a Boston slum.

volsense on December 9, 2012 at 6:35 PM

I’ve always found it intriguing that liberals believe they are so intelligent, yet they expend so much energy to prove they are not.

Never stand in the way of a liberal when demonstrating how ignorant they are.

And maybe the onset of Ted’s last battle too? It might be in the DNA.

Twana on December 9, 2012 at 7:44 PM

Memo to RFK, Jr.:

Thanks for reminding us again what bespeaks the unctuous, dysfunctional spawn of Bootlegger Joe.

By the way, how’s the wife?

viking01 on December 9, 2012 at 10:20 PM

I saw Ted Kennedy Jr. on TV last week. He was making the rounds as one of the spokespeople for the U.N. Disabilities Act that failed in congress. It made sense at first, seeing as Ted the Younger had lost a leg to cancer as a kid…But the guy came across as vapid as hell! The sponsors might as well have sent Chloe Kardashian out to make their case. Guess the last generation of Kennedys took all the erudition and magic with them.

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on December 10, 2012 at 1:08 AM

Man, talk about the sins of the fathers being visited on the children… what a family. I use the term ‘family’ loosely, of course.

Marcola on December 10, 2012 at 1:18 AM

Junior is a moron. What the f**k else is new?

HerneTheHunter on December 10, 2012 at 5:05 AM

I was born in Quincy Mass. but left years ago. However, I just wish that the obnoxious, overbearing, insipid, abrasive, elitist and limousine liberal Kennedy family would shut up and go-the-’bleep’-away. Enough!

Isn’t this enough evidence to get him committed to a mental institution?

Old Country Boy on December 10, 2012 at 9:24 AM

He’s crazier than Lyndon LaRouche. Next he’ll be saying that the Queen is a drug dealer.
