Scarborough To Republicans:
'Stop Blaming The Media'

Newsbusters, by Mark Finkelstein

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/8/2012 8:34:17 AM

Should Republicans unilaterally disarm in the media-bias wars? Joe Scarborough seems to think so. Arguing that it distracts Republicans from performing the political blocking-and-tackling needed to win elections, Scarborough has called on Republicans to "stop blaming the media." Saying "let's makes this personal," Scarborough cited as an example of the supposed distractions to which he was referring the controversy over the tape Morning Joe aired in September from a Romney campaign stop. Readers will recall that the clip seemed to show Romney asking the crowd, which had been chanting "Romney!", to change to "Romney/Ryan."

Joe has no clue about what Republicans should do. Does he still call himself one?

Joe thinks he is relevant. The only people who watch his show are leftists and a few RHINOS. His show is the excuse the left uses to prove they are open minded and see both sides. Just remember he works for MSNBC.

I sometimes view MSNBC to identify its advertisers, with whom I then no longer do business. In fact, neither NBC nor its evil spawn should remain in business.

The media bias war may be the single most important battle Republicans MUST fight. Obama would never have won if the media had done its job. The cover up of the true scope of the Hurricane Sandy tragedy is criminal. Most of the nation believes that other than a few downed trees and some watyer in the subways Sandy was no big deal. Its not in the news so the response must have been a resounding success. Thanks to Obama of course.

The reality is far different, and with 500,000 still without power and a nasty bitter cold snowy noreaster hitting yesterday and today the misery of millions is compounded.

NY City is a disaster, and the media ignore it so the Won can look "presidential". Disgraceful.

The reality is the Republicans have a huge problem with the press. The supposed demographic shift can be attributed in part to this propoganda machine, control what the masses are allowed to know and you can control how they think.

We must find some way to destry the MSM, not balance out, destroy. They are the single most dangerous enemy a free America has today.

Joe, you are so, so wrong. Your media consistently and purposefully doesn't tell the "whole story" and scraps reports which do not favor 'your/their' candidate. That is dishonest and unfair to the American people. The truth is the truth is the truth. We Americans deserve it - whether you think so or not.

And, Joe, - once again - we hardly knew ye! What the hell happened anyway?? You and Chrissie would be good together on your own show and could make beautiful music together. I won't be watching, but 'go for it'.

I would love to see Lucianne.com become a Scarborough-free Zone. And while we're at it, a Matthews-free Zone. We don't want to live in an echo chamber, but what they say is of no consequence unless we pretend that it is and ruminate on it here.

I'm sorry but the second Media stopped reporting the news and began telling "the narrative", was when they stopped being neutral. The media is the first big fat target to be destroyed before the next election in 2014 so a Crowley doesn't get to moderate another debate. Preferably, she should end up in a homeless shelter, jobless.

No one is blaming the media. We are just stating the facts: You are liars, have no professional integrity, are incompetent, and ignorant. I am all for breaking up those cable packages -- let's see how long some of those liberal networks last without forced subscriptions.

Looking back we can all see that the media has always been biased toward the left. What Republicans need to do is start effectively fighting back which will mean not accepting their horribly biased questions. Wouldn't it have been fun if Palin had asked Charlie Gipson "Why the frowny face?" or "Are you feeling okay?" when he was sneering down his nose at her? Almost everyone watching would have cheered - we all like to see a snot taken down a peg. What if when Candy Crowley jumped in to save 0bama, Romney had quipped that maybe she would like to join 0bama at the podium and an audience member could take her moderator's seat? You can't fight the evil in the world if you're unwilling to fight the likes of Charlie and Candy.

I have never that show, whatever it is. I don't watch any of the popular media because it plays to a low common denominator. The internet is easy to filter for maximum content. Lucianne is one of my favorites because of this. But the popular media is the enemy of liberty. It is a strong force in the face of freedom. It is extremely biased and corrupt. But it doesn't share all the blame.
If Romney really did get less votes than Mcain't then we really deserve zipp0.

Joe, who watches your show anyway? not many viewers, and very, very low ratings...pathetic. Nattily-dressed, overfed, scrubbed up "pseudoconservatives" need the general cure. Basically, prostituting yourself to be a tv coservative equals Tokyo Rose. Sad. I gave up Morning Joe long,long ago.

He is partially correct. First up the campaign managers and speechwriters, then the candidates themselves and finally a voting population that appears to have a population of fools and parasites that overwhelm informed voters. Of course the media and by that I mean anyone in a position to disperse information or entertainment which is the most appealing information, brainwashes dim viewers into sheeple. Orwell predicted it, we are living it.

I watch Morning Joe once in a while when I want to jump start my blood pressure for the day. Scarborough is so irrelevant and Mika is a mess. She makes so many faces I think she is doing facial exercises to keep her skin taut. Both of them are shills for the DNC and they can say what they want - but the media has become the Fifth Estate. They are subversive and I consider them enemies of America. I don't trust them one iota and neither should you.

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow    Original Article

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

Morgado is the star of Son of God, by executive producers Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey, which continues to thrive in theaters, pulling in $59 million since its debut Feb. 28. Downey believes there will be a "spike" in attendance at theaters this weekend because of the spiritual holiday for a film that has already proved a box-office force.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
