For awhile now, I have been watching MSNBC, as like most here, this is the only corporate news source, that is relatively close to the truth politically. While I admire the left wing hosts, I'm finding an increased dislike, towards the way they pursue the truth.
For example, and I apologize for not getting the names of the guests, Dilan Ratigan's take on Health Care. One of his three guests, was a Republican ex-governor who we know, (and he did) lie relentlessly on O'bama's health care piece of legislation. The other two, were in support of O'bama's health care legislation. During most of the 10 minute coverage, both sides traded blows, on this particular health care plan. Then, one of Dilan's guests from the left, asked this right winged pig, "if this piece of legislation wasn't so popular with the american people and congress, then why did it pass?" I mean it's pretty obvious, that the right wing filth in congress, doesn't have any tangible health care piece of legislation floating around congress today. A dead person is much more affordable in balancing the budget, than one who gets adequate treatment from their family doctor. (from their side anyway)
...we all know that...Right? (sure we do)
Anyway, back to the circus. As the debate continued, the "filthmaster" from the right, defended his position from the left, saying, "if that piece of legislation received more exposure from our media, it would of been much less popular with the american people."
Well, first of all, HERE COMES THIS "AMERICAN PEOPLE BULLSHIT" AGAIN FROM THE RIGHT!! He thinks that the general population here in america, still thinks O'bama is a muslim. However, and having said that, not once, did Dilan or his left winged guests, even mention the word, single payer, hb 676 or the public option. And as far as enough exposure from our media...
WELL, THIS FILTHY RIGHTWINGER IS "DEAD ON" ON THIS ONE!!
...no pun intended of course!!
...it simply was a golden opportunity for Dilan and his two left wing guests, to conveniently shove the truth, down this right wing pig's throat.
...that's what "the real american people" wanted.
...but they dropped the ball on it!!
If MSNBC would of hammered the other options to O'bama's, "I hope you enjoyed the crumbs off my White House floor" piece of health care legislation, then yeah, this right winged pig, and the rest of his "ringworms," would of been "ridden out of town," with their corporate tails between their legs.
Dilan's show, "steel on wheels," in my opinion, is the same way. A lot of interesting guests, with amazing stories how some business owners, were at the brink of bankruptcy, but were able to pull their businesses through, and became successful in the end. And the beautiful mountaineous setting from the ski lift well, it simply took my breath away!!
But from my end, it carries just about as much "resonance," as O'bama's speech last week. I have seen several of these episodes in the past, where the left could of "dragged the carcuses of the right wing," off the stage, with their "political filth," dripping closely and purfuselly from behind!!
...but they didn't!!
Another example, was the Ed Shultz show, who I was listening to last night. He tried to settle down his guests, who were "pissed off," that the "pyscho talk" program was taken off his show. Many of his listeners complained, and justifiably so, that the Faux lies and propaganda, are spread freely over the airwaves, and that Ed, is simply "calling them out" on their filth!! But almost in the same breath, Ed complained about his new time slot on MSNBC, saying it may take awhile to get use to. YOU'RE NOT ON PRIME TIME ANYMORE ED!! Remember, Keith Olberman split, almost immediately, (or possibly shortly before) Comcast took over.
...and then there's Lawrence O'Donnell
And there's "the given," such as the "green energy manufacturing base" in this country, where Dilan could easily run an hour long segment on this alone, on his "steel on wheels" program. Is all this ever mentioned? Sure it is!! But don't hold your breath, on it's re-occurances!! It's just a fricken' shame, when you have seen in the past, pieces of right wing flesh, dripping off Dilan's mouth, as he so justifiably "bitch slapped," these useless right wing pigs!!
In short, and I hate to admit this, but I'm starting to see the little strings, dancing from the ceiling, of the MSNBC studio, much more than before. Lawrence O'Donell was the first sign. Remember, we have NO VOICE AT ALL, when it comes to alternate voices, from our corporate media. MSNBC is just about it.
...God, I long for the days, of having my BIG DISH SATELLITE SYSTEM!!
Furthermore, and I have stated this before, that the media is more of a complainer, than a uniter, or a trailblazer. This of course, is due to the "widely scattered yellow," from our journalists today.
In closing, as long as MSNBC can bring up an issue, pursue it enough from the left, and not give the "real voice" of the american people, then the lies and propaganda from the right, will continue. This to me, IS a "given."
Back in the FDR and Kennedy days, the voice of the american people WERE heard. There were real debates on issues. People were able to make a much better decision, on who they wanted to vote for, than today. I still can't forget, how shitty Nixon looked, when debating Kennedy. To me, and this is just my opinion, the media simply wore him down. Kennedy looked great, primarily because he told the truth. Lies wore me down too, covering up my drug abuse from the past.
And this is because of a more "testosterone driven media." A media that use to bring the issues, straight to the forefront, and allowing the american people to actually "picture," what a piece of legislation would look like in action. From there, the american people could simply run with it, or ignore it altogether.
... they simply "could connect the dots" back then.
A high resolution picture of an expensive sports car, may motivate an individual, to take it for a test drive. However, and if they could afford it to begin with, they would be totally "bummed out," if all four tires were flat, once that individual arrived at the car lot.
Same way with our corporate media. "MSNBC Carrot on a Stick," is really not that hard to pronounce!!
...and then, there is the "911 issue," who the media will NEVER, get at the root of.
By covering a story only 60%-70%, this corporate media, will have tons and tons of "soap opera type" coverage/stories. By unfolding ALL THE FACTS, enables more accountability from our elected officials.
60%-70% coverage, might of been more acceptable, during the "pre Bush, I'm so fucking stupid days," but the world is so much more of a dangerous place to live in nowadays, because of the legislation this monster passed, when he used our constitution, as a door mat to the White House.
You simply cannot see, how a piece of legislation is going to perform, if the media cannot or will not, bring it's whole story to light.
Ed Schultz reassured his audience, that the acquisition by Comcast, will have no effect, on getting to/at the truth.
I respectfully disagree!!
Most of his shows, as well as other left winged hosts on MSNBC, educate me very little anymore. With a limited exception to Rachael Maddow, because like a wild animal, she has experienced the taste of "raw, right wing flesh," by having (a very few) of these filthy right wingers, foolish enough to be on her show.
And it hurts me profoundly, because I have other sources of information off the internet, that cover stories in much more detail, than MSNBC does. It would be nice, if I could reaffirm, that MSNBC is a great "cross reference."
...but I can't!!
