Green Room

Finally: Someone Calls Out Mainstream Media For Being Too Darned Even-Handed Toward Republicans

posted at 3:27 pm on December 13, 2012 by

Chris Matthews started out his Hardball program on MSNBC chastising his fellow broadcaster for their behavior in the last election cycle, and demanding that the kid gloves come off and they all start reporting what everyone knows is the truth. Republicans are gay-bashing, women-hating racists. The Democrats? Why, they’re fundamentally unchanged since the days of Kennedy.



Maybe my memory is still a little fuzzy, but I remember President Kennedy being for a lot of things. Dividing the country in half over a desire to raise income taxes just because he wants to redistribute wealth wasn’t in any of my history books.

I can’t wait till they start demanding, like Harry Belafonte, that their opposition gets jailed, starved, or murdered.

Think Progressive™

Forward!

Um…they’re already doing this. Get with the times, Tingles.

the use of MSNBC to troll for comments and hits is amusing

graduated college in 2009. Didn’t hear a thing about Kennedy’s tax position or Reaganomics.

Spent semester after semester on:

- The New Deal
- FDR’s greatness
- The New Deal
- Woodrow Wilson’s foreign policy wisdom
- The New Deal
- The New Deal

and why George W. Bush sucked.

Almost every day in one of my undergrad genetics classes, my New Zealand prof would say something negative about Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Halliburton, Wolfowitz, The Carlyle Group. Etc. Etc.

I was reading a research paper the other day and the author just had to throw in a derogatory crack about Cheney that had absolutely nothing to do with the subject of the paper. I was really kind of taken aback by it in the middle of the paper. The liberals just can’t let go of their hatred of Bush and Cheney. That is why no matter how bad BO makes this country it will always be the fault of Bush and Cheney.

Me too: he had fabulous hair and a pathological addiction to strange that would later inspire Billy Jeff to become a serial rapist.

The White Liberals elite (in particular White Liberal elite men) will always be angry and hateful even after they win elections because they really do not want to be anywhere close to the majority of people who vote for them as they consider them irrelevant parasites (which is true) and only need them for their vote and nothing else… They know that those who vote for our side and against them are the ones with the real power and makes the country runs on a daily basis…

Same here. In fact, when we first learned about FDR, we were taught that the New Deal didn’t really work and that it was WWII that pulled us out of the Great Depression. By the time I graduated high school in 2007, we were learning that the New Deal ended the depression and WWII was just icing on the cake.

idiot

Since Matthews is clearly an idiot, can we stop posting his nonsense here? Really, it’s a waste of time. We already know he’s a complete @sshat.

MF DA HS CL!

I just want to scream!!!

Since the election I was wondering when this piece of dung would be so buoyed by O’s reelection to spout something arrogantly untrue.

I guess his employer really think Americans a herd of sheep in third world.
