MSNBC’s Lack of Professionalism … “Oh God” Statement Before Gov. Jindal Republican Response to Obama Speech

Posted in: Barack Obama,Bizarre,Media,Media Bias,Politics,WTF

So what was MSNBC saying “Oh my God” to? The fact they knew Jindal would say Democrats place their hope in government, we place our hope in you the American people.

More media bias … the fact that these people cannot provide just what would be considered common decency is amazing. This is a news network, or at least it is supposed to be.

No bias in the media on display last night at MSNBC. The MSNBC powers that be, Olbermann and Matthews bowed down and got on their knees as Barack “The Chosen One” Obama entered the House of Representatives for his speech last night. All hail Obama as members of the MSNBC staff became weepy and Chris Matthews got a tingly feeling in his leg, again.

Sorry the same respect could not have been provided to Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal as he gave the Republican response to Obama’s speech. How about any respect? So much for respect, decency and professionalism at MSNBC. It really is shameful that they pass this off as news.

“Oh God” and then laughter …

 WATCH the video at Real Clear Politics.

As Gov. Jindal prepares to give the Republican response to Obama’s address, an MSNBC host or producer was heard off camera muttering “Oh God.”

The remark came after host Keith Olbermann paused the panel’s discussion as Gov. Jindal was walking to the camera.

At Hot Air, they have an update that states Patterico’s sure the “Oh God” comes from Olbermann and Goldfarb’s sure it comes from Matthews. I am inclined to agree with Allah Pundit, does it matter?

Who do you think it was? Olbermann, Matthews, other? I am inclined to believe it was Matthews voice.

As The Politico points out, Olbermann and Chris Matthews were removed from the anchor chairs late in the 2008 campaign; however, both have returned recently to be out in front during MSNBC’s coverage. One might ask why?

UPDATE I: As for the Obama’s speech … no one will ever deny that he does not present of good speech, our issue is whether he can deliver the goods. Talk is cheap and eventually Americans will realize this.

UPDATE II: The Bobby Jindal Response … full text here … American’s Can Do Anything

Following any President’s speech is always a tough act to follow but as the Gateway Pundit states … Jindal’s message of individual freedom, economic freedom, personal responsibility and hope was a stark contrast from the unrealistic garbage that we heard from the socialist Messiah before him.

UPDATE III: I was Correct … Chris “Hard Ball” Matthews was the culprit

I thought the voice sounded to high to be Olbermann’s and I noticed a hint of smarmy arrogance coupled with elitist tone.

UPDATE IV: Chris Matthews Explains “Oh God” comment.

Chrissy Matthews explanation of his “Oh God” utterance is about as pathetic as the comment itself. Gee Chris, we are sorry if the presentation did not meet with your superior, elitist approval. Funny, I do not remember any such utterance when Obama had over the top productions like the during the campaign. Instead, that gave you a tingly feeling. But then again, we all know there is no left wing bias in the media.

I was taken aback by that peculiar stagecraft, the walking from somewhere in the back of this narrow hall, this winding staircase looming there, the odd anti-bellum look of the scene. Was this some mimicking of a president walking along the state floor to the East Room?
