MSNBC … The Least Trusted Name in TV News … FOX NEWS, The Most Trusted

Go figure, who would have thunk it?

A recent Brookings and Public Religion Research Institute poll seeks to name the most “Trusted name in News”. Needless to say, MSNBC was not it, in fact they were the least trusted name in TV news. Fox News Channel was ranked as the most trusted name overall with 25% of respondents. The Washington Free Beacon reports, MSNBC was also the worst choice among independents (4 percent) and moderates (5 percent), getting thumped by Fox News in both categories.

Read the full survey here.

Among all Americans surveyed, only 5% identify MSNBC as their “most trusted” TV news outlet, while Fox (25%), broadcast networks (23%), and CNN (21%) make up the top three. Now, of course, the argument could be made that MSNBC’s just trusted by the fewest because of exposure (CNN and Fox are much bigger household names; and broadcast networks are still the dominant news outlets in the ratings).

Also interesting is the fact that despite Jon Stewart‘s reputation as being the news source for younger demographics, among all age ranges, he only garners 8% of people’s “most trusted” label.

HA, HA, HA … Megyn Kelly Roasts Joe Scarborough as He Shills his Book ‘The Right Path’ … Have Fun with Your ‘Four Viewers’

ALL FOUR VIEWERS, HA,HA,HA … COME ON MEGYN, YOU KNOW THEY HAVE NINE.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, co-host of ‘The Morning Joe,’ appeared on ‘The Kelly File’ with Megyn Kelly to promote his new book, “The Right Path,” or so he thought. There was some political discussion of his book; however, it pretty much turned into a fun-filled roast of Joe Scarborough. As Megyn Kelly ended the interview with Joe she said, “If you want to see more of Joe you can join his four views tomorrow morning … make it five. OUCH!!! Prompting Scarborough to say, “You sure are having a good time here. You really are.” However, this was all done in fun, nothing mean spirited.

As Scarborough tried to steer the conversation back towards politics, Kelly couldn’t resist continuing the roast. Even when she plugged his book, she made sure to note how Fox News has “so many viewers,” insinuating he came to the right place to promote it.

Then she went after his show’s ratings.

“Thanks for being here,” Kelly began. “You want to see more of Joe, you can join his four viewers and see it tomorrow morning… No, just kidding.”

An MSNBC host appeared on Fox News tonight. No, you’re not reading this from a parallel universe where dogs walk humans, that actually happened. Joe Scarborough appeared on Megyn Kelly‘s show to plug his new book, and the interview quickly turned into a roast where Kelly got in a few barbs at Scarborough’s expense.

Scarborough complimented Kelly on his set, at which point she shot back, “There’s still a blond woman on the set interrupting you at every turn.” And, referencing one of Scarborough’s worst moments, she warned, “If you snap your fingers at me, you’d have eight fingers instead of ten.”

Megyn Kelly Roasts MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough as He Shills His Book, ‘The Right Path’ … “You Can Join His Four Viewers” Tomorrow Morning on The Morning Joe

HA, HA, HA … Megyn Kelly just scorched former US Rep. Joe Scarborough and co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe … oh she is subtle and good!

Last night Joe Scarborough, co-host of MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ went into the lions den to promote his new book, ‘The Right Path’. Or so he thought. As Megyn Kelly had a good time at Scarborough’s expense as he attempted to plug his new book, that is when she hit him with the knock out punch as she ended the interview … You want to see more of Joe, you can join his four viewers and see it tomorrow morning. Ok so she was embellishing a bit, The Morning Joe has 9 viewers. Of course this was harmless banter, not the personal attacks one gets when going on MSNBC.

MSNBC’s Chris “Tingles” Matthews Least Liked TV Newscasters

It will come as no surprise, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was named the least-liked newscasters, based on survey results from the Q Scores company. The ‘Hardball’ anchor Chris Matthews had the lowest likability score of all the names tested, as he registered only a 6 on the Q Score survey. But don’t worry, Matthews had company at the bottom of the list with fellow MSNBC’ers Andrea Mitchell and Alex Wagner. In comparison, CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley came in at number one on the list with a 19.

And just one example of how Tingles won the least liked award … Chris Matthews Gets Angry Over “Thrill Up The Leg” Question on C-SPAN

What do you want in a newscaster? Accuracy? Ethics? A voice of reason in times of duress?

Or do you just want to like your anchor?

If the last part is most important to you, then channel-surf no further than Scott Pelley of the “CBS Evening News.” The newsman topped TheWrap‘s list of most and least-liked newscasters, based on survey results from the Q Scores company.

Pelley’s 19 Positive Q Score, which measures likeability, helped him just beat the No. 2 guy, CNN’s Anderson Cooper, who had an 18. Cooper’s 56 Recognizability score places him among the highest on this list.

“Hardball” host Chris Matthews struck out with the lowest likeability score of all.

NBC Edits Out IOC Anti-Discrimination (Gay) Statement From Opening Winter Olympic Ceremony in Sochi

What was the #1 story leading up to the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games, other than a possible terrorist attack? It was Russia’s views and laws that were anti-discriminatory against Gays.

So then why did NBC edit out the one part of the IOC’s statement during the opening ceremony that was commenting about Russia’s  anti-discrimination” policies? As Buzz Feed reports,  IOC president Thomas Bach made a strong statement against “any form of discrimination” and in favor of tolerance; however, no one in America watching the games saw or heard them because NBC conveniently edited them out. But of course NBC is no stranger to editing out important parts of the news are they (George Zimmerman 911 call). Hmm, why edit something that spoke so directly to what was considered an important part of the games? Please, and I do not want to hear about it being edited for time. There was much more of his speak that could have found it’s way onto the editing room floor.

NBC Peacock

What would the Peacock say?

More from Deadspin more on the edits and both VIDEO’s, one edited, the other not.

Good evening, dear Athletes. Mr president of the Russian Federation, Mr Secretary General of the United Nations, Good evening Olympic friends and fans around the world! Welcome to the 22nd Olympic Winter Games! Tonight, we are writing a new page in Olympic history.

What has been achieved in seven years is a remarkable achievement. I would like it thank, in again, the president of the Russian Federation and his Government. The Sochi organizing committee. The Russian Olympic committee. And the IOC members in Russia.

Thank you to all the workers for your great contribution under sometimes difficult circumstances. Thank you to all the people of Sochi and the Krasnodar region. Thank you for your patience, thank you for your understanding during these years of transformation.

Now you are living in an Olympic Region. I am sure you will enjoy the benefits for many, many years to come. Thousands of volunteers have welcomed us with the well-known warm Russian hospitality. Many thanks to all the wonderful volunteers. Bolshoi spasiba, valantyoram! Thank you very much to everyone. Russia and the Russians have set the stage for you, the best winter athletes on our planet. From this moment on you are not only the best athletes, you are Olympic Athletes. You will inspire us with your outstanding sports performances. You have come here for sports. You have come here with your Olympic dream. The International Olympic Committee wants your Olympic Dream to come true. This is why we are investing almost all of our revenues in the development of sports. The universal Olympic rules apply to each and every athlete- no matter where you come from or what your background is. You are living together in the Olympic Village. You will celebrate victory with dignity and accept defeat with dignity. You are bringing the Olympic Values to life. In this way, the Olympic Games, wherever they take place, set an example for a peaceful society. Olympic Sport unites people. This is the Olympic Message the athletes spread to the host country and to the whole world. Yes, it is possible to strive even for the greatest victory with respect for the dignity of your competitors. Yes, Yes, it is possible – even as competitors – to live together under one roof in harmony, with tolerance and without any form of discrimination for whatever reason. Yes, it is possible – even as competitors – to listen, to understand and to give an example for a peaceful society.

Olympic Games are always about building bridges to bring people together. Olympic Games are never about erecting walls to keep people apart. Olympic Games are a sports festival embracing human diversity in great unity. Therefore, I say to the political leaders of the world – thank you for supporting your athletes. They are the best ambassadors of your country. Please respect their Olympic Message of goodwill, of tolerance, of excellence and of peace. Have the courage to address your disagreements in a peaceful, direct political dialogue and not on the backs of the athletes.

To all sports officials and sports fans I say – join and support our fight for fair play, the athletes deserve it. To you – my fellow Olympic Athletes – I say, respect the rules, play fair, be clean, respect your fellow athletes in and out of competition.

We all wish you joy in your Olympic effort and a wonderful Olympic experience. To all of you – Athletes, Officials, Fans and Spectators around our globe – I say, enjoy the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games! And now I have the honour of inviting the president of the Russian Federation, Mister Vladimir Putin, to declare open the 22nd Olympic Winter Games.

UPDATE I: An NBC spokesperson stated “The IOC President’s comments were edited for time, as were other speeches, but his message got across very clearly to viewers.

NBC, MSNBC Sink to Bottom of Who the Public Trusts as FOX News is the Most Trusted Name in News, AGAIN

What a shock, NBC and BSNBC MSLSD MSNBC have sunk to the bottom of the media outlets that Americans trust most for their news. Wow, really? Who would have thought that the Peacock has turned into a propaganda network for the Obama administration?  Imagine that “We the People” do not trust a media outlet like MSNBC that has to consistently apologize for hideous and heinous comments and tweets they make that are bigoted and racist. Oh, and the network that intentionally edited tapes to distort the news to make George Zimmerman a racists and misrepresent what actually happened.  And what will make the LEFT howl as FOX News was named #1 by PPP.  That would be named the most trusted name in news, AGAIN.

Fox News is the most trusted, with 35% choosing the “Fair and Balanced Network.”

MOST … Again

FOX News

LEAST … who saw that coming?

MSNBC2

NBC News and sister cable network MSNBC rank at the bottom of media outlets Americans trust most for news, with Fox News leading the way, according to a new poll from the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling.

In its fifth trust poll, 35 percent said they trusted Fox news more than any other outlet, followed by PBS at 14 percent, ABC at 11 percent, CNN at 10 percent, CBS at 9 percent, 6 percent for MSNBC and Comedy Central, and just 3 percent for NBC.

The pollster said Fox won because Republicans are devoted to it. “It leads the way because of its continuing near total support among Republicans as the place to go for news- 69 percent of Republicans say it’s their most trusted source with nothing else polling above 7 percent,” said PPP.

Fox News once again most and least trusted name in news.

PPP’s 5th annual poll about trust in TV news continues to find what it does every year: Fox News is both the most trusted and least trusted name in news.

35% of Americans say they trust Fox News more than any other TV news outlet, followed by 14% for PBS, 11% for ABC, 10% for CNN, 9% for CBS, 6% each for Comedy Central and MSNBC, and 3% for NBC. It leads the way because of its continuing near total support among Republicans as the place to go for news- 69% of Republicans say it’s their most trusted source with nothing else polling above 7%.

NRO says it best,  “If Democrats only have MSNBC at 12 percent, what’s the point of their liberal-bias programming? I’m no high-paid television executive, but these polling numbers suggest to me that hiring some true conservatives at CNN and MSNBC might translate into new viewer.”

Ann Coulter Responds to MSNBC’s Ed Schultz’ Challenge that Republicans are Afraid of Him with … “Invite Me on Your Show, You Lying P*ssy”

Looks like the ball is now in Ed Schultz’s court …

Following MSNBC’s Ed Schultz’s comment from ‘The Ed Show’ where he said, “Republicans, they’re afraid of me. They don’t want to talk to me,” the never at a loss for words Ann Coulter responded via Twitter with the following … “Invite me on your show, you lying p*ssy”. Well how about them apples? So the real question is whether Schultz will put his will have the CO-JONES to actually invite Ann Coulter on his show and face the intellectual and fiery wrath  of one of our favorite conservatives?

The answer is, if MSNBC actually wants some ratings they would do it in a heart beat. However, if they want Ed to be reduced to a puddle of goo, they might think otherwise. However, I would not hold your breathe on this one to happen.

From Newsbusters:

These MSNBC hosts like Rachel and Ed love posing as macho Republican-slayers, with Rachel repeatedly begging Republican senators to please, please, please come on her show (because she’s such a formidable debater, you see), and now Schultz boasting that Republicans are terrified of him! We quake in our boots!

I’ve been begging to come on their shows for years now, but they’re all apparently too afraid of a 99 lb girl. (Or any conservative who can put 2 sentences together — Hey! Somebody get Todd Harris on the line!)

Moreover, I don’t care that they’re all a bunch of pussies at MSNBC, but cut the B.S. posturing when you won’t allow any non-retarded conservative on your airwaves.

AND THE LIES JUST CONTINUE … Now the Obama White House is Saying that 7 Million Signups for Obamacare by March Was Never Their Goal

If the Obama White House minions mouths are moving, you can rest assured they are lying …

How bad is it when even MSNBC is trying to hold the Obama White House’s feet yo the fire as to Obamacare signup goals and questions the truthfulness of Obama’s minions?  White House adviser for health policy Phil Shiliro said to MSNBC that the goal for Obamacare was never 7 million signups by March, that was just some arbitrary number from the CBO. What a joke, Schiliro denied that the Obama administration ever set Obamacare enrollment goals of 7 million consumers or that benchmarks were necessary. Really, no benchmarks, I guess we can see why the roll-out and entire concept of Obamacare is a disaster.

What a shock, the Obama administration is moving the goal post once again. The GOP has stated that Obama was infamous for doing this, yet Americans paid no attention. I bet they are now. It is fair to say that nothing from the Obama administration can be trusted.

Transcript:

WELKER: Are you confident that you’re going to be able to meet your target of getting 7 million people by the end of March? And is that still your target number

SCHILIRO: Well, that was never our target number. That was a target that was put out by the Congressional Budget Office and has become the accepted number. But there’s no –

WELKER: Well Kathleen Sebelius has said 7 million people, that that’s the goal.

SCHILIRO: But that was because it came from the Congressional Budget Office and it had become an accepted number. There’s no magic to the 7 million. What there is magic to is that in the month of December, a million Americans signed up for insurance. Not because they had to. They didn’t face a penalty if they didn’t. They signed up because they wanted insurance on Jan. 1.

But wait, what do you mean that 7 million was not the goal? That is the number that HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated was the target back in June 2013. But ever since then the White House has lowered the bar and now they have lowered it so much they claim there were no benchmarks. Next thing you know Obama’s minions will be touting negative signups.

Sebelius on Monday said 7 million is a “realistic target.”

“We’re going to be driving our efforts toward that kind of enrollment effort,” she said. “It’s both about numbers and also hopefully getting a balanced risk pool.”

VIDEO below shows HHS Sec Sebelius agreeing with the 3 million target

But what makes it all worse is that not even the so-called 2.1 million who think they have enrolled in Obamacare, really have not. So they are referring to enrolled as individuals who have signed up but may not have paid their premium. How does one have coverage or considered enrolled if they have not paid? So on January 1, 2013 the new set of challenges will begin. How many people think they have insurance coverage; however, do not?

With President Obama’s health care law scheduled to begin in earnest when the new year kicks off, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius claimed on a Tuesday conference call that as of Dec. 28, “2.1 million people have enrolled in a private insurance plan” through the program.

Later in the call, Sebelius emphasized that enrollments wouldn’t be completed until individuals paid their first month’s premiums.

But HHS officials still won’t disclose how many of the 2.1 million they claim enrolled through the federal healthcare.gov website or one of the state-based exchanges actually paid for coverage.

Though Sebelius left the call before the question-and-answer session, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services spokeswoman Julie Bataille declined several times to provide payment information.

They Said What … NewsBusters Dopiest Quotes of 2013 … The “Audacity of Dopes Award for the Wackiest Analysis of the Year”

Newsbusters has the “Dopiest” quotes of 2013 and let me just say they are pretty damn dopey … Should it be considered the ‘Audacity of Dope” or “Dope and Change”? Incredibly, there were probably so many to pick from, the following are the winners, they said what?

1. MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry, for a Big Brother-esque “Lean Forward” promo that began airing on her network in early April.

I bet Americans did not know that kids belong to their parents and their families. Nope, not in the eyes of socialists in the media. This goes beyond Hillary Clinton’s notion that ‘it takes a village’. Americans should just say a collective, YIKES!!!

“We have never invested as much in public education as we should have, because we’ve always had kind of a private notion of children …. We haven’t had a very collective notion of these are our children ….We have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to whole communities.”

2. New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman on April 21 thought he had the perfect argument for his longstanding quest for a prosperity-suffocating tax on fossil fuels. This liberal, anti-fossil fuel, global warming columnist actually had the audacity to link the Boston Marathon massacre terror bombing by the Tsarnaev brothers as an excuse to exploit it and call for carbon taxes. Some one really needs to explain the connection other than liberal dribble. Because we can see that they really cared about global warming.

“Until we fully understand what turned two brothers who allegedly perpetrated the Boston Marathon bombings into murderers, it is hard to make any policy recommendation other than this: We need to redouble our efforts to make America stronger and healthier so it remains a vibrant counterexample to whatever bigoted ideology may have gripped these young men….And the best place to start is with a carbon tax.”

Read and listen to the rest at Newsbusters that includes the incredible notion that the media slants to the right and the part that makes the Christmas season too stressful, is the religious stuff.

Far Left Journalist Glenn Greenwald Says to MSNBC: I Defend Snowden Like You Defend Obama “24 Hours a Day”

When the Far Left attack each other … with the Truth.

Lefty journalist Glenn Greenwald defended himself and his actions when he was asked by MSNBC’s Kristen Welker if he was acting as a spokesman for whistle-blower Edward Snowden. Greenwald’s response was priceless, “We’re on MSNBC now, where close to 24 hours a day the agenda of President Obama and the Democratic Party are promoted, defended, glorified.” OUCH!!! But he did not stop there … Sure, I do defend him just like people on MSNBC defend President Obama and his officials and Democratic Party leaders 24 hours a day.”

Sit back, grab the popcorn and a beverage and watch Lib on Lib duke it out …

 

From Mediaite:

I think that’s ludicrous is what I say to that,” Greenwald shot back. “Every journalist has an agenda. We’re on MSNBC now, where close to 24 hours a day the agenda of President Obama and the Democratic Party are promoted, defended, glorified, the agenda of the Republican Party is undermined. That doesn’t mean the people who appear on MSNBC aren’t journalists, they are.”

He said that every journalist has a “viewpoint” and he doesn’t hide the fact that he finds Snowden’s decision to expose the NSA’s surveillance programs “heroic.”

 “Sure, I do defend him just like people on MSNBC defend President Obama and his officials and Democratic Party leaders 24 hours a day.”

It’s not just me who is laughing that anyone on BSNBC would have the CO-JONES to ask anyone if what they did affects their journalist integrity, the Lonely Conservative is getting a good chuckle herself.
