MSNBC Looks To Battle
Pro-Obama Reputation
During Second Term

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/21/2012 6:41:23 PM

Over at the Huffington Post, media reporter Michael Calderone reports that MSNBC President Phil Griffin seeks to combat the network’s growing reputation as not just being “progressive,” but being openly “pro-Obama.” Many believe the network’s “pro-Obama” reputation has, thus far, been warranted: A recent Pew study found that during the final week of the 2012 election campaign, MSNBC ran zero negative stories about President Obama; and not a single positive story about Republican challenger Mitt Romney. Comedians have also taken to mocking the network for what seems to be an

MSNBC is socialists ALL of the time, rarely a conservative voice. FoxNews has its liberals and socialists on every panel and even its business shows on the weekend. There is no comparison. FoxNews is fair and balanced.

Occasionally I tune in to the MSNBC branch of The Ministry of Truth, but only to see who is advertising. I then direct my purchases elsewhere.

MSNBC has been in the tank for the liberal left and slavish in its´ devotion to Barack Obama for so long that no sane person would call them anything but unfair and unbalanced. They will go broke long before they are viewed as anthing but the propaganda arm of the democrat party.

Well..if you follow their standard proscriptions delivered daily about how to make up for past Discrimination in Society...all they have to do is cover a 100% Republican/Conservative point of view for the next ONE HUNDRED YEARS! (I´ll check back in about 50yrs to see if they are living up to what´s "Fair"...and "encourage" them by Bashing them for the lack of enthusiasm in their reparations)

Unless there is a total housecleaning at NBC News and their subsidary channels such as MSNBC News, I expect the result will not be battling a "Pro-Obama Reputation" but a continued creep of that pro-Obama reputation deeper into the NBC News operations and over to CNBC.

MSNBC is a disease that kills from within.

Oh please, they do not. How can they not be pro-Obama when they hate Republicans so much? It´s not really about Obama as much as it´s about to-the-core, bitter, flesh-eating, brain-damaging, hatred of the GOP.

They will continue as they have been, despite this pathetic attempt at PR rejuvenation.

MSNBC has been doing the same thing to the country that the 30yr. old nit-wit Occupooper performed at the Tomb of the Unknown.

The only way for that place to get cleaned out would be to bulldoze it to the ground while the "so called staff" was still inside.

Have they forgotten they openly admitted they received daily phonecalls from the White House outlining to them what stories not only to run but to frontline?

And yes, they were both serious, as well as honest. The only thing from MSNBC I ever believed.

This makes no sense: Why "battle" their pro-Obama reputation if they are right about Obama being such a great POTUS?

Second, why did they wait until the second term to suddenly get religion and admit they´ve been biased all during the first term?

Aside from MSNBC being irrelevant at best, do they think they can gain some credibility with rabid, ear-splitting, spittle-spewing, shrieking TV personalities?

Finally, who cares other than the people who own this ratings-disaster program?

With as much info that the media knows about but refuses to cover for us the viewers, the fact that they are making this ´just kidding´ attempt to recover viewship must mean that there is something really, really bad out there in the wings.

We the thinkers here at Ldot already know that.

Whatever is done at MSNBC, please keep the two biggest losers, Chris Matthews and Lawrence O´Donnell. What whiners and truly miserable human beings. They will do more for the other side in the long run if they continue to spout their rhetoric claiming Republicans are racists because they dared to disagree with Obama. Chris Matthews still thinks he will be the next Tip O´Neill.

Also keep Rachel Madow. She is good for pure entertainment so we can be encouraged when we see a smart, well educated, lesbian demonstrate just how miserable she is. She surely has value as a human being. Perhaps along the way we will get to see her drop her snarky, condescending ways and enter the world as an actual person.

Stop the presses! This has to be THE news item of the year!

Has anyone told MSNBC how irrelevant they really are, how they´re ALWAYS at the rock bottom of the ratings lists, that almost NOBODY watches the ranting and raving of Chris Matthews, that MSNBC almost NEVER has any opposing views on their shows, that their idea of a balanced round table is Joe Scarborough (whose ties to Republicans and conservatives were effectively severed ages ago)? Does MSNBC still not understand that less than one percent of all Americans have ever heard of Rachel Maddow or Lawrence O´Donnell(my figures I admit), or that their network is the single most biased, most disrespected channel of any network anywhere today? It wouldn´t matter if MSNBC nails pro-Obama banners across its front doors and each commentator wears "HELP ELECT OBAMA FOR A THIRD TERM" on their bright red sweatshirts The fact is, MSNBC just DOESN´T MATTER! They could go off the air permanently tomorrow and only a handful of their fellow socialists would even notice. Or care!

A fish rots from the head down.
NBC is just as awful as MSNBC.
Brian Williams is just vile.
Foster Friess , Sheldon Adelson, Rove´s multimillion PAC and the rest should forget the ads and instead
try and buy a controlling interest in
one of the networks.
It´s the only way to reach the low information voter.
FOX News should also have a directly competing half hour news show in the same low information
format as NBC, CBS and ABC.
My personal goal for the next four years is to not only avoid seeing or hearing Obama , but , to avoid anything shown on NBC , CNBC , MSNBC or
the slyly political Weather Channel.
Unfortunately, GE also owns the Military and the History Channel , so, I am not going cold turkey there, but, I will cut back.

Griffin doesn’t think his anchors sugarcoated the situation: “We hire smart people with a progressive sensibility,” he told Calderone. “I tell them to go think for themselves. We don’t have talking points.”
===================================

When you discriminate against those who are not progressive, you have only people who would write left wing talking points left, DUMA$$.

Mr. Griffin is quite a fool, but thinks he is fooling others.

Oh, sure... Their entire lineup is built on 0bama worship and hatred of traditional American values. They have prevailed among the liberal networks by taking the most leftist view on every issue. Even if they dumped all of their programming, conservatives would still not be interested. FOX NEWS has the highest ratings for very good reasons.

On objectivity, integrity, and professionalism, the liberal networks have screwed the pooch!

Get Chris Matthews some meds for his lunatic behavior and for his tingle in his crotch.
Keep you dude Maddow off other shows like the crapfest Late Show with Dipwad Letterman. Its bad eough that you have her/it on PMSBSNBC.
And last but not least fire Mika and Scarbouroh because they suck.

Al Gore´s youngest daughter has gotten remarried under a historic tree in Santa Monica. Sarah Gore has a very casual outdoor service on Sunday morning outside a coffee shop with her famous father walking across a patch of grass that served as the makeshift aisle. Wearing a loose, off-white lace dress with bell sleeves, Sarah made her way towards her groom, realtor Patrick Maiani, who was waiting for her beside the outline of a heart in the shape of rose petals.The brief service was officiated by a female religious leader and attended by about a dozen invited guests.

As a young reporter, I once expressed shock at how routinely and reflexively government officials lied to the press. A savvy newspaper vet who overheard me just smiled and told me not to take it personally. “Why shouldn’t they lie to you?” the late, great Murray Kempton asked. “They lie to themselves all the time.” His observation came back to me as I read about President Obama’s trip to Asia. He’s going, the White House says, to tell our allies face to face that America is committed more than ever to their security and prosperity. In ordinary times, the trip and

WASHINGTON — Curt Clawson, a businessman who was little known months ago in Southwest Florida, won a contentious GOP primary Tuesday to fill the U.S. House seat left open by the scandalous downfall of Trey Radel.Clawson, 54, pitched himself as an outsider against more established candidates and was embraced by the tea party. He poured more than $2 million into television ads. In one, the former Purdue basketball player challenged President Barack Obama to a three-point contest. The Bonita Springs resident took about 38 percent of the vote in the Congressional District 19 race, besting several rivals, including state Sen.

IRS employees who had been disciplined for tax and conduct issues were nonetheless rewarded with monetary awards or time off, according to a watchdog report released Tuesday. The report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that while for the most part the reward program for IRS workers complied with federal regulations, employees who had themselves failed to pay their federal taxes and had discipline problems were also rewarded. "While not prohibited, providing awards to employees who have been disciplined for failing to pay federal taxes appears to create a conflict with the IRS’s charge of ensuring the

It seems only yesterday, before the soothing elixir of “hope and change” was spoonfed to us by present-President Barack Obama, that Republicans could disagree with Democrats without being branded “teabaggers,” KKK-members, anarchists, Nazis, bomb throwers, arsonists, political terrorists or extremists. The unspeakable crime of conservatives? Their heartless desire to live their own lives and to be left alone by the bullying U.S. government. What has been the conservative outcry since disco was still a thing? Follow the Constitution, be fiscally responsible, and restore limited government.

The speaker, talking to reporters the day he was easily elected to a fifth term as Illinois Democratic Party chairman, said voting to keep the personal income tax rate at 5 percent instead of letting it fall to 3.75 percent on Jan. 1 will be a “difficult roll call.” “Every person in the legislature is going to be called upon

How often have you heard a Democrat prattle on and on about how well Barack Obama has done with the economy, given the mess he inherited? Usually, it’s some version of, “Things are getting better, but the economy the President started with was so awful, so he’s done as well as anyone could expect.”When Ronald Reagan took over from Jimmy Carter in ’81, things were actually worse economically compared to when Obama took over from George W. Bush in ’08. Consider these three important comparisons of economic indicators, then and now: - Unemployment was at 10.8% versus 7.7% - Inflation (Consumer

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
