This Just In: Secret Video At MSNBC Production Meetings Released

posted at 6:15 pm on May 13, 2013 by

No, it’s not about Benghazi.

Sorry, it’s not about the IRS deciding who gets audited depending upon their political persuasions or their religious beliefs.
What is going on inside of MSNBC is the news that Barack Obama’s Justice Department, for some inexplicable reason, decided in 2012 that not only was the President’s campaign staff concerned about what the media was reporting, but that they opted to secretly wiretap the offices of the Associated Press. Sources close to MSNBC came out of their planning session for how the little-watched network would cover the story.



Erika of course has the full story on the front page, but this leads to a bigger question.

Hugh Hewitt has long called for a select committee on Benghazi, because of the inter-jurisdictional problems of five committees involved that might step on each other. You’d have to think that’s almost a certainty now, wouldn’t you? With Benghazi, the IRS scandal, and WiretAP now busting out all over, there’s nobody in Washington busier than Darrell Issa in the House Governmental Affairs and Oversight Committee. His plate is certainly going to be full. Benghazi deserves its own investigatory committee.

We’ll soon see if the other scandals rise to that level.

All of these scandals coming to full fruition now.
So the worst the Democrats came up with for Bush was leaking the name of a CIA employee who was NOT a field agent and firing of 7 US Attorneys.

I thought the melting bunny was Allahpundit’s domain?!?

something’s wrong with this site…I want to hump a chocolate bunny and melt a robot.

Obama claimed today in the presser that Benghazi investigation is just ‘political motivated’.

He’s going to use the same excuse for the other two scandals too?

No, that’s not what MSNBC production meetings look like. This is.

Huh. I was always under the impression they were like this.

Issa is, at best, not a closer. He cannot handle this much work, and will ultimately bungle all of it. There is far too much work for just his committee, but of course, Boehner doesn’t want any of this exposed anyway…

A CHOCOLATE bunny?

Racist!!

With all of these scandals to look into, Darrel has got to be fast…& furious.

The hair dryer was just pure art.

What are they surprised their creation is turning on them also? Have none of them read Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein???

Ukiah on May 13, 2013 at 9:32 PM

Hmmmm…pretty sure Allah is the only one authorized to melt the bunny….

Wiretapping? Did they call the operatives “plumbers?” The media went nuts when Nixon did something like this. Where are the Oval Office Tapes? Where?

What gives you that impression? I find Issa to be a very effective executive. Glad he’s there right now.

The tears from that bunny under the dryer look just like the ones our President shed when asked about Benghazi.
