…for low information voters. Yup, that would be the far left extremists at the so-called “news network” MSNBC.
Let’s review the facts of the matter, Pew Research studies have shown that MSNBC content is only 15% actual news.
Compare that to the Emmanuel Goldstein of every “open minded” so-called “progressive”, Fox News, which is much more “Fair and Balanced” with a commentary/News ratio of 55%/45%. That’s right, dear readers, you get three times more actual news at Fox News than you do at MSNBC.
Now let us take a look at some of the mis-information MSNBC is passing on to it’s core audience of low information voters. Hot Hair has a couple of videos that illustrate how MSNBC carefully edits the information they pass to their viewers in order to advance their left wing extremist political agenda. In the first video, the MSNBC talking heads go to great length to imply that Senator Cruz lacks a basic understanding of the Heller case, as well as a basic understanding of the Constitution itself. In order to promote their politically motivated commentary, they have to ignore what Senator Cruz said in the second video, which is from the same hearing they are attacking him over! In the second clip, Senator Cruz notes that he argued the Heller case before the Supreme Court (which he won), and shreds the case the MSNBC talking heads tried to make. Just to add insult to injury, one of the MSNBC talking heads, who is supposed to be their token conservative, accuses the NRA of playing games with language for using the correct term “semi-automatic” rifle instead of the nonsense term “Assault Weapon.” Anyone who has bother to do the basic research on the subject would know that the term “Assault Weapon” was coined by victim disarmament activist Josh Sugarman. He deliberately wanted to confuse people by implying that semi-automatic weapons were fully automatic weapons that have been under strict federal regulation since 1936.
Another example is Rachel Maddow, supposedly the “smart” one at MSNBC attacking House Minority Leader Boehner for, correctly, stating that US Constitution has a preamble. Here is a video of Maddow claiming that the US Constitution doesn’t have a preamble.
My theory is that Maddow really is aware that the Constitution has a preamble, but is smart enough to know that most of her core audience aren’t the type to actually read the US Constitution. Even the ever so small minority of those viewers who are aware that she made a mistake, wouldn’t admit it, since it goes against their political agenda. For the left, their political agenda always trumps the truth.

MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell is desperately trying to get the Obama campaign talking points out there, but that “Evil Republican” John Sununu keeps insisting on using actual facts!
“MSNBC is less a news provider than a carousel of liberal opinion…”
This is not a surprise to anyone paying attention. Really, the head of MSNBC admitted that he was going to “out Fox Fox”, but from the far extreme left. It was a business decision in order boost their ratings out of dead last in the cable new race.
Kudos to him because it worked. MSNBC is still way, way behind Fox News in the ratings, but has passed CNN.
File under yet another example of how bad liberals are at history. Perhaps that is because they tend to rewrite it in a blatantly Orwellian fashion to fit whatever they think will assist their next grab at the brass ring of power, but I digress slightly. The topic at hand is in your face ignorance of the party that is constantly telling you how stupid anybody who dares disagree with them are.
Listen to this clip of a MSNBC talking head, i.e. a “News Anchor”, attempt to “educate” his listening audience and get a key historical fact about an elected democrat President completely and utterly wrong. This isn’t a slip of the Talking Head’s tongue, he’s reading from a prepared script, in a produced segment, complete with background graphics. The fact that JFK was assassinated in November of 1963, requiring LBJ to have been elected in November 1964, in order to decide not to run in 1968, is completely lost not only by the “News Anchor”, but the also by: the person or persons who wrote the segment, the producer of the segment, as well as anybody in the entire production team that set the segment up for presentation on the air.
Given that MSNBC’s business plan is to “out fox Fox News, but from the extreme left”, it is doubtful that there is a single Republican or conservative in that list of people involved in the production of the so-called “news segment” in question. One possible explanation is that the entire crew is so indoctrinated in the liberal “group think” or “herd mentality”, that none dared question the obvious and glaring error. A large C Conservative or Libertarian would have stood up and pointed out the error. The leftists have been conditioned not to question authority from “their betters.”
Then again, as one of the people commenting on the post I’m referencing there points out, it was a production team at MSNBC who let one of that network’s political “commentators”, Rachel Maddow, “mock Boehner for saying the Constitution has a Preamble.”
Perhaps MSNBC is betting that their audience is woefully ignorant about actual American history.
Hardly surprising was that MSNBC “commentator” and far left extremist, Rachal Maddow was stanch and aggressive supporter of Rep. Weiner as he lied to the press, his constituents, his staff, his wife and the rest of the world every time he opened his mouth.
Maddow put forth every moonbat conspiracy theory on exactly Weiner was hacked by an evil “vast right wing conspiracy” posted on the DailyKos, every single one of them were empirically proven wrong BTW, as the “Gospel Truth”tm.
Not that Maddow let the actual truth slow her down. She is now trying to down play the whole thing with her sex scandal chart
The real question, however, is “What did Maddow know and when did she know it?
One of Weiner Cyber-Mistresses had contacted the Maddow show back on June 3, 2011. The Maddow show wanted nothing to do with this information. Perhaps if the Cyber-Mistress had said the dirt was on a Republican, the Maddow team would have been all over it. Or was it the last thing they wanted to, ahem, touch was news about a political sex scandal right when the democrat party‘s attack congressman’s online habits were just hitting the news?
The management at MSNBC did pull him off the air for it, but let’s see if this is a real firing or an “Olbermann firing.”
Waiting for NOW to condemn his sexist hate speech…ok, that was laugh line.

Mr. Ferguson is articulate, competent, and lays out the facts of his argument very clearly.
How he made it past the MSNBC screeners is a good question.
I can think of no better reason to vote against Obama than the prospect of an administration where any criticism of the President is treated as racism.
Once again, he is being proved correct.
OLBERMANN: The Republicans and the Tea Partiers will tell you what happens tonight with Scott Brown tonight, whether he wins or comes close, is a repudiation of Obama policies, and surely one of Obama’s policies from the viewpoint of his opponents is that it’s okay to have this sea change in American history, to have an African-American President. Is this vote to any degree just a euphemism the way state’s rights was in the 60s?
FINEMAN: Wow, that is a good question.
Ed Morrissey interjects reality into Olbermann’s rantings:
Yes, because the state that gave Barack Obama a 26-point win in November 2008 has suddenly discovered its inner Bull Connor. That’s not “a good question,” it’s a baldfaced smear on the people of Massachusetts. They elect one Republican, and suddenly in Keith Olbermann’s eyes, everyone there wears a hood and burns crosses. It’s absurd, and Fineman should have said so immediately instead of playing along with Olbermann’s vicious fantasy world in which 201o Massachusetts 0has become 1966 Mississippi.
These MSNBC Moonbats really have gone off the deep end. They are actually flat out calling pickup trucks symbols of racism. These guys are seriously off their meds.
President Obama, Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid should publicly apologize for the rantings of MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann and condemn it as hate speech.
