Ed Rendell: Coverage of Barack Obama “Embarrassing,” & MSNBC “The Official Network of the Obama Campaign”
Even Democrats admit there is bias in the media, especially when it goes against the candidate they were supporting.
The Democratic Governor of Pennsylvania Ed Rendell gave members of the main stream media a tongue lashing, especially those at MSNBC. Rendell’s comments came during what were supposed to be closing remarks at the Shorenstein Center-sponsored panel discussion with the three anchors of the Sunday news shows, NBC’s Tom Brokaw, ABC’s George Stephanopoulous and CBS’s Bob Schieffer.
Rendell called the coverage of Barack Obama “embarrassing,” and accused MSNBC of being “the official network of the Obama campaign.” Let us remind everyone that Ed Rendell is a Democrat. This was the last thing that the Democratic organizers wanted prior to the convention was the Obamamessiah media bias can of worms being opened.
Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell was supposed to give “closing remarks” during this afternoon’s Shorenstein Center-sponsored panel discussion with all three Sunday show moderators — NBC’s Tom Brokaw, ABC’s George Stephanopoulous and CBS’s Bob Schieffer — but instead, he opened up a can of worms about bias in 2008 election coverage
“Ladies and gentleman, the coverage of Barack Obama was embarrassing,” said Rendell, in the ballroom at Denver’s Brown Palace Hotel. “It was embarrassing.”
All of this occurring the day before the Democratic National Convention begins where the Democratic Party is trying to display “unity”. Good luck to that notion. Rendell, a Hillary Clinton supporter, further went on to say:
“MSNBC was the official network of the Obama campaign,” Rendell said, who called their coverage “absolutely embarrassing.”
Chris Matthews, Rendell said, “loses his impartiality when he talks about the Clintons.”
