OUCH!!! Former White House spokesman Robert Gibbs admitted on MSNBC, ‘The Morning Joe’ that the lie made by President Barack Obama over and over and over (26 times) to sell Obamacare “you can keep your health care insurance” was a big mistake.
MSNBC host Brzezinski: Why would you let your president say that?
Robert Gibbs: Well look I don’t recall significant discussions around some of the verbiage on this to be 100% honest with your.
MSNBC host Brzezinski: Do you agree it was a wrong move?
Robert Gibbs: Certainly.
Folks, when Barack Obama has MSNBC going after him, he has some serious, serious problems.
MSNBC Strikes Again: VIDEO of Numerous Examples of Obama Appearing to be Left in the Dark from ‘Fast & Furious’ to ‘Benghazi’ to ‘IRS-gate’, etc … The Bystander in Chief or Did He Know All Along and Is Lying?
What did the President know and when?
Barack Obama was supposed to be the smartest president ever. Now we see a president is a mere onlooker in his own White House. MSNBC and ‘The Morning Joe’ delivered a damning video of Barack Obama, the Bystander in Chief, who appears to be just clueless and left in the dark. But is it really possible that an individual, the President of the United States, could be that far out of the loop and disengaged from all things bad and scandalous in his administration like Fast & Furious, IRS-gate, Benghazi terror attack, NSA-gate, AP-gate, and the Obamacare rollout. But at the same time Obama is in the minutia with Obamacare in acting like an insurance agent selling plans and getting involved in the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin case.
Is this really a case of Obama being a bystander, or his attempt for plausible deniability? Does anyone really think Obama is out of the loop, or are all of his actions intentional with a smile?
So what is worse America, a liar as president, or a complete and total incompetent? Let this be a lesson to all Americans why you never elect a community agitator as president or some one so unqualified to do the job.
OUCH, ANOTHER HIT FROM MSNBC … ‘Very, Very Major’ Social Media Site Co-Founder, Obamacare Technology ‘Sucks’
It is not just Republicans who think that the Obamacare rollout is a disaster …
Willie Geist on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ via Newsbusters told panel that a person he interviewed who was a co-founder of a site so major that they would all know it and might have it open on their computers said the criticism of the Obamacare website is fair because the “technology sucks.” Let’s just say that social media web site founders are hardly ever Conservatives.
Obamacare depends on young, healthy people, especially, young healthy males to sign up for the train wreck and subsidize older, sicker or poorer individuals. However, if the young, technological savvy generation on Twitter, Facebook and other social media think the technology sucks as well, they will lose them. Young folks are not going to waste their time, spending hours waiting for a web site in which we currently live in an immediate, instantaneous world.
WILLIE GEIST: I was interviewing last night at an event one of the co-founders of a very, very major social media site that you all know and may have open on your computers. And I said, are we being fair here? Am I missing something? He said, no, they had two-and-a-half years to figure this out; to build a site that would work, and as you said, there were going to be problems in the beginning, but you have things in place to fix that. And he said, frankly, the government’s technology sucks.
Even MSNBC is Questioning the Barack Obama … The Obama Administration Is Lying About Obamacare Enrollment Numbers …”They are Outright Lying”
CAN YOU SAY WOW … MSNBC FINALLY ADMITS OBAMA IS THE
LION LYING KING …
How bad is it for President Barack Obama and Obamacare? Even in uber-liberal MSNBC is calling the Obama administration liars. During yesterday’s ‘Morning Joe,’ the gang absolutely ravaged Barack Obama and his administration for their lack of transparency, misleading the American people and lies. Host Joe Scarborough questioned the Obama administration in saying, “these people want to run the healthcare system that is most import to Americans over the age of 35 and 40 and yet they are not telling us what is going on with our system that they want to run?” That was only outdone when it was then said, “they are lying about it … they are outright lying”
And we wonder why America has no faith in government anymore?
As the Gateway Pundit correctly points out, with so many states reporting ZERO sign ups in Obamacare, there is no way possible that 500,000 individuals have enrolled as Obama and his minions claim.
Obamacare, EPIC FAILURE … The lap dog media could not even defend Obamacare on this one …
The joke is on you America, after years in the planning and millions upon millions of dollars spent on the implementation of Obamacare, day one is a complete and total bust. Not even the liberal media could come to the aid of President Barack Obama as the internet sign on system was rife with errors, server delays and page loading mishaps. s reported at the Washington Times, President Barack Obama now says Obamacare will bring months of ‘glitches’. What a microcosm of the Obama presidency, all promises and nothing but a clustf*ck in return. Welcome to your Obamacare.
CNN tries to log on for Obamacare and fails miserably.
From The Weekly Standard:
BROOKE BALDWIN: So you guys hit a wall. we’re here in Georgia. What about other states? Similar issues?
ELIZABETH COHEN: The CNN medical team branched out. We tried in about 20 different state states. In 12 of them we hit glitches. Sometimes it made it impossible to sign up. There were error messages or that little annoying kind of twirly thing.
BALDWIN: I hate the twirly thing.
COHEN: Hate it, hate it, right? In many cases, you just couldn’t sign up.
From NRO … Even the Progressives at MSNBC could not sign up for Obamacare either.
MSNBC’s Mara Schiavocampo ran into difficulties as she tried to sign up for the newly launched health-care exchanges on Tuesday. After getting an error message on the website, she called the help line twice, but wasn’t able to reach a navigator on the other end. Instead, she was put on hold for 35 minutes.
“If I were signing up for myself, this is where my patience would be exhausted,” Schiavocampo said before she gave up.
The joke is on you America, how did this guy get reelected again?
So much for media objectivity, at least MSNBC.com does not even present to be “fair and balanced” …
From The Blaze comes the following interesting tid-bit regarding MSNBC and their push to be more of a progressive and liberal hub for ideology, rather than an objective news source. It is hard to believe that this used to be an actual, credible news source all not that long ago. Yup, no media bias here.
Individuals visiting MSNBC.com over the weekend will be greeted with a new splash page billing the new website as “what progressives have been waiting for.”
“Want a sneak peek at the new msnbc.com?” the splash page asks. “It’s what progressives have been waiting for.”
On the other side of the splash page, visitors are told to visit NBC News for “breaking news and reporting.”
Could MSNBC become any more of a joke? Looks like the Magic 8 Ball says … signs point to yes.
As reported by Mediaite, Alec Baldwin is going to host a prime time show on the MSNBC cable news channel. According to Mediaite, Bladwin will not be replacing any of the stellar prime time news talent that MSNBC as assembled, but instead will replace the Lockup prison documentary series that airs Friday evenings. Are you kidding, that is actually the only show worth watching on the pathetic network. It would appear that MSNBC is neither confirming or denying the rumor.
Is the only reason why anyone would watch this to see if he has a melt down on live TV? But alas there is no way they would allow such a show to be taped live.
War on woman? Take a good look what MSNBC thinks should host a show on their network … Alec Baldwin calls his 12 year old daughter a “rude, thoughtless little pig.”
Mediaite has learned from a senior source in the cable news industry with knowledge of MSNBC’s programming that actor Alec Baldwin is getting his own weekly show in MSNBC’s primetime lineup.
According to our source, the so far untitled show will air Fridays at 10 p.m. ET and will feature a large dose of Baldwin’s outspoken liberal politics.
The gig would make sense, considering Baldwin’s long history with the NBC family. He starred on the network’s award-winning sitcom 30 Rock for seven years, has frequently hosted Saturday Night Live, and hosted the network’s American airing of 2007?s Live Earth concert. Most important, Baldwin’s fiercely liberal and often combative political views make sense for a network that has become the place for progressive viewpoints on cable.
Twitchy is a flutter with some great tweets regarding Alec Baldwin to MSNBC. How comical, pathetic and telling is it that FOX News puts an intelligent, aspiring and up and coming female talent like Megyn Kelly to prime time on their network and MSNBC puts a tired, old cranky, child hating, gay bashing lunatic white man like Alec Baldwin on theirs? Really, is this how far this cable network has fallen? I am going to go out on a limb and say it will not be too long before Lock Up is back on Friday’s.
Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin.com could not have stated it any better, “If the story is true, it’s another desperate attempt by MSNBC to make Al Sharpton look like the rational one”. Amen brother!
After 25 Years It’s Pay Up time for Tawana Brawley, the 1987 Rape Hoaxer Finally Pays the Piper for Slander … Al Sharpton Still Race-Baiting & Going Strong
FLASH FORWARD 25 YEARS AND AL SHARPTON IS GOING THE SAME THING HE DID WITH TAWANA BRAWLEY, FANNING THE FLAMES …
Twenty five years after falsely accusing an innocent man of rape, Tawana Brawley is finally paying the piper for her lies. Brawley owes Pagones $431,000 in damages for her slander and is now forced to pay Pagones $627 each month, possibly for the rest of her life. A Virginia court ordered Brawley to pay this money after she had been found hiding from her lies and her past living under the assumed name of Tawana Vacenia Thompson Gutierrez in Hopewell, VA. You can run, but you cannot hide. However, isn’t it something that Sharpton never had to hide … he made a living off of this sordid, terrible incident.
Twenty-five years after accusing an innocent man of rape, Tawana Brawley is finally paying for her lies.
Last week, 10 checks totaling $3,764.61 were delivered to ex-prosecutor Steven Pagones — the first payments Brawley has made since a court determined in 1998 that she defamed him with her vicious hoax.
A Virginia court this year ordered the money garnisheed from six months of Brawley’s wages as a nurse there.
She still owes Pagones $431,000 in damages. And she remains defiantly unapologetic.
“It’s a long time coming,” said Pagones, 52, who to this day is more interested in extracting a confession from Brawley than cash.
Isn’t it something though that a race-baitor like Al Sharpton never really had to pay a price for his involvement in this rotten and cruel hoax perpetrated on Pagones? Brawley’s advisers in the infamous race-baiting case, the Rev. Al Sharpton, and attorneys C. Vernon Mason and Alton Maddox, have already paid, or are paying, their defamation debt. However, they never really faced real justice for their reprehensible actions. As Weasel Zippers opines, “Well, you [Al Sharpton] never had to hide, someone else pays your court judgment, you continue to race-bait and you get a job on MSNBC. Take a good look at the NY Post story as to what Al Sharpton, Maddox and Mason did and was allowed to get away with it. They exploited the false rape story of a 15 year old girl to help fan the flames of racism. Flash-forward to present day and Sharpton is once again fanning the flames as he leaches on to the death of 17 year old black teen Trayvon Martin and exploits it for his personal gain. Are you sensing a pattern? Why is this allowed to happen? Because no one calls Sharpton for what he truly is. Well, maybe not no one. During a talking point on ‘The Factor’ Bill O’Reilly ripped the race-hustler and profiteer Sharpton for what he really was and pointed out the real problems that face the black community.
She was only 15 when she claimed she was the victim of a crime whose shocking brutality sparked a national outrage and stoked racial tensions.
The two-decade-long saga that nearly ruined Pagones’ life and career began on Nov. 28, 1987, when Brawley was found in a trash bag, with the words “n—-r” and “b—h” scrawled on her body in feces.
Firebrands Maddox and Mason and a relatively unknown Sharpton jumped into the fray. Within weeks, a suspect emerged — Fishkill Police Officer Harry Crist Jr., who had been found dead in his apartment three days after the Brawley “attack.”
But Pagones, a Dutchess County prosecutor at the time, defended his dead friend Crist, offering an alibi for the cop — they were Christmas-shopping together on one of the days in question. And on the three other days of the “kidnapping,” Crist was on patrol, working at his other job at IBM, and installing insulation in an attic.
Brawley’s handlers then claimed — without proof — that Pagones was part of the white mob that kidnapped and raped the girl 33 times.
George Zimmerman Attorney James Beasley Says All Ahead Full in Lawsuit Against NBC News Now that Verdict of “Not Guilty” Returned by Jury in Murder Trial
James Beasley, George Zimmerman’s attorney in his law suit for defamation of character against NBC News for doctoring and mis-editing Zimmeramn’s 911 call, stated that they are going forward and full speed ahead now that the criminal murder case against Zimmerman is over and he was found “not guilty”. Every one is talking about George Zimmerman’s legal troubles, a most certain civil lawsuit by the estate of Trayvon martin and a possible federal civil rights charge by the DOJ, even though the FBI has previous found that Zimmerman was not racist and did not display any prejudice or racial bias. But it would appear the most immediate legal action is going to be that of George Zimmerman suing NBC News for defamation.
Last night’s not-guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial will enable the neighborhood-watch volunteer to resume his case against NBC News for the mis-editing of his widely distributed call to police. Back in December, Zimmerman sued NBC Universal Media for defamation over the botched editing, which depicted him as a hardened racial profiler.
The company also noted the pivotal nature of the second-degree murder case: “[I]f Zimmerman is convicted, that fact alone will constitute substantial evidence that the destruction of his reputation is the result of his own criminal conduct, and not of the broadcasts at issue which, like countless other news reports disseminated by media entities throughout the country, reported on the underlying events.”
That formulation is now null.
According to Zimmerman attorney James Beasley, the case against NBC News was stayed pending the outcome of the criminal case. Now that’s out of the way, and Beasley is ready to proceed. “We’re going to start in earnest asap, we just have to get the stay lifted which is a ministerial act,” says Beasley, a Philadelphia lawyer, via e-mail.
Brent Bozell and Sean Hannity discussing the media and political bias against George Zimmerman … the NBC doctored 911 tape
NBC News presented the 911 call as follows, in a March 27, 2012, broadcast of the “Today” show, abridged the tape of Zimmerman’s comments to a police dispatcher on the evening of Feb. 26, 2012:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.
However, the undoctored and full tape went like this:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about. Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.
NewsBuster reminds us that NBC has since fired three employees because of this incident, but claims that it did not engage in a deliberate misrepresentation of the facts. Oh, of course not. This was an obvious case of NBC News going out of their way to doctor a 911 call to present a narrative to the American people that would support the LEFT’s witch hunt of Zimmerman. It could not be more clear. As Patterico’s Pontifications opines, one of the biggest villains in this case was “Big Media” and NBC was at the head of the list.
EXIT QUESTION: When has the news media ever had to edit a 911 tape except to take out expletives or addresses?
MSNBC Dead Last Among Cable Networks in Ratings Collapse … Rachel Maddow Show Has Lowest-Rated Month Since 2008 Debut
You mean people actually still watch
MSLSD MSNBS MSNBC … How Low Can They Go?
It certainly does not come as a surprise that MSNBC’s ratings have hit the skids. Only die hard libs watch the network and with the Obama scandals with Benghazi, AP/Rosen and the IRS, even the most hearty libs cannot seem to stomach watching their Obamamessiah go down in flames. Honestly, MSNBC has become unwatchable. I would sooner watch a 24 hour Honey Boo Boo marathon than have MSNBC programming inflicted upon me. Which is sad because I used to know folks there; however, they have long since gone. MSNBC is down during the day 346,000 total viewers, down 10% (115,000 in 25-54, down 7 percent). And during prime time, MSNBC at 539,000 total viewers, down 20%. What, you mean folks don’t want to watch shows like, The Morning Joe I used to be a Republican, Hard Ball with Chris “a tingle up my leg” Matthews, Politics Nation with Al “Race Baiter” Sharpton, All In with who cares, and Rachael Maddow? Say it isn’t so. At what point does MSNBC clean house?
What is even more stunning is that FOX cable has more views than there other three competitors combined.
From the Hollywood Reporter:
Averaging 539,000 viewers in primetime and 175,000 viewers in the adults 25-54 demographic, MSNBC suffered double-digit drops from last May — down a respective 20 and 19 percent. Losses were less substantial in total day, down 10 percent to an average 346,000 viewers and down 7 percent to 115,000 adults 25-54, while all other nets pulled growth in multiple categories.
The soft start for All In With Chris Hayes has not helped. Hayes, down 32 percent in total viewers from The Ed Show last May, has offered a poor lead-in for MSNBC’s primetime flagship, The Rachel Maddow Show, at 9 p.m. The show delivered its lowest-rated month since it debuted in September 2008 (717,000 total viewers) and its second lowest with adults 25-54 (210,000). Maddow was topped by typical time slot victor Sean Hannity and CNN’s Piers Morgan.
Read the complete rankings, May 2013 versus May 2012, via Nielsen:
- Primetime FNC: 1,973,000 total viewers, up 17 percent
- CNN: 660,000 total viewers, up 70 percent
- MSNBC: 539,000 total viewers, down 20 percent
- HLN: 624,000 total viewers, up 91 percent
