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.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Names Barack Obama the Political Loser of the Year of 2013 … “Feels Like the 7th or 8th Year of His Presidency”

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews has lost that thrill running up his leg … Hey Mathews, How’s that “Hopey-Changey” thing working out for ya?

Friday morning on ‘The Morning Joe,’ Matthews named Barack Obama the political loser of the year for 2013. How painful must that have been for Chris Matthews to say, rather than acting like a school girl with a crush and a thrill running up his leg. Maybe Mathews just hadn’t enough coffee that morning and had a moment of weakness where he was actually telling the truth. Many liberals are going to have an introspective in evaluating Barack Obama and the failure that has been his presidency as his poll numbers near the 30′s. How difficult will it be for Chris Mathews, the rest of the liberal MSM and Democrats to admit … he [Obama] is not the one they were waiting for.

“Terrible year for the president. I mean, it’s terrible,” he said.

Joe Scarborough agreed that it has been a “terrible year” for Obama after there was “so much hope” following his second inauguration.

“There’s another piece of it which you’re subtly getting at,” Matthews continued. “It’s not just that it’s a bad year in terms of the rollout. There’s an erosion in interest. It feels like a very long presidency now. It feels like the seventh or eighth year of a presidency. It doesn’t feel like the fifth.”

VIDEO Hat Tip – NewsBusters

Transcript – NewsBusters:

JOE SCARBOROUGH, HOST: Let me ask you losers, political losers of the year?

CHRIS MATTHEWS: Terrible year for the president. I mean, it’s terrible, this…

SCARBOROUGH: Can you go back a year? One year ago, the president was getting ready for his second inauguration. So much hope. This has been a terrible year. [American voters buyers remorse for if the election was today, Obama would have been run out of office in an epic landslide].

MATTHEWS: There’s another piece of it which you’re subtly getting at. It’s not just that it’s a bad year in terms of the rollout. There’s an erosion in interest. It feels like a very long presidency now. It feels like the seventh or eighth year of a presidency. It doesn’t feel like the fifth. There wasn’t that rejuvenation that comes with re-election. There wasn’t any, certainly he was never going to get a honeymoon from the other side, but there was no sense of wow. And I think that’s hurt him a lot.

Seventh or eighth year of the presidency … are you kidding … IT FEELS LIKE THE 7th or 8th TERM OF OBAMA’S PRESIDENCY!!!

Fox News Channel maintained its grip on the cable-news network ratings prize in 2013, drawing more viewers than the combined averages of CNN, MSNBC and HLN.

It was a down year in terms of overall audience, as every newsie but HLN showed primetime declines from their Presidential Election-driven tallies of 2012.

According to Nielsen data through Dec. 8, Fox News Channel averaged 1.774 million viewers in primetime (down 13% from 2012) and 297,000 adults 25-54 (down 30%). It was followed by MSNBC with 645,000 viewers and 203,000 adults 25-54 (down 29% in both); CNN with 578,000 (down 15%) and 187,000 adults 25-54 (down 16%); and HLN with 403,000 total viewer (up 21%) and 142,000 in the demo (up 27%).

Among all basic cable networks in 2013, FNC ranked sixth in primetime while MSNBC was 29th and CNN was 31st. In total day, Fox ran fourth while CNN was 28th and MSNBC ran 30th; in 2012, CNN finished behind MSNBC. CNN and HLN showed some year-over-year gains on a total-day basis, while FNC and MSNBC were down.

HA, Weasel Zippers adds, Media Matters unavailable for comment. But the LEFTIES live an an alternate universe and believe that they can still keep their healthcare insurance if they like it or any other Kool-Aid that Obama pours.

MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry Says “Obamacare” Is Same As Using The “N” Word … The Liberal MSM Playing the Race Card as They Play Chief WH Propagandists

WOW, when I first watched this VIDEO I  thought it was a SNL parody skit. Then realized this lib was actually being serious. I guess she went to that media/WH meeting about how to shill for Obamacare! Yup, NO MEDIA BIAS HERE …

Five years later, two elections later, record number of Americans on food stamps, real unemployment at all time highs, median household incomes at all time lows, job participation at all time lows, the Middle East in chaos, greater terror threats to America than ever before, millions of Americans losing their insurance, premium costs skyrocketing, scandals like IRS-date, AP-gate, Fast & Furious, NSA-gate and the liberal MSM is using the race card with the blessing of the Obama White House. MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry is saying that by saying “Obamacare” is the same as using the “N” word and you are a racist. In a cheer-leading Obama rant that would have made Joseph Goebbels blush, she suggested the term “Obamacare” and the N-word are interchangeable, claiming both were “conceived by a group of wealthy white men who needed to . . . render [a black man] inferior and unequal and diminish his accomplishments.”  Hmm, what was Reaganomics, Romneycare, Hillary-healthcare? What about Voo-doo economics? Were all these racists too? It’s called political discourse you IDIOT!

How very sad that liberals in the media continue to try to divide America and make everything about race in an attempt to stop people from criticizing a disastrous law by calling them racists. A note to MSNBC and Melissa Harris-Perry that have you taken a look at how “We the People” feel about Barack Obama? There is a reason why Barack Obama is at an all-time low in the polls, down 23% with Hispanics,  down 17% with Non-Whites and down 14% with women, are they racist too? Are the millennial’s who voted overwhelmingly for Obama in 2008 and 2012 racist too, 57% disapprove of Obamacare and 52% want it repealed..

From The Daily Caller:

HARRIS-PERRY: “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years. And like it or not, it’s indelibly printed in the pages of American history. A word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame and divide and demean. The word was conceived of by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man, to render him inferior and unequal and diminish his accomplishments.

“President Obama has been labelled with this word by his opponents, and at first he rose above it, hoping that if he could just make a cause for what he’d achieved, his opponents would fail in making their label stick. But no matter how many successes that he had as president, he realized there were still many people for whom he’d never be anything more than that one disparaging word — a belief he knew was held not just by his political opponents, but also by a significant portion of the American electorate.

“And so he decided if you can’t beat them, you’ve got to join them. So he embraced the word and made it his own, sending his opposition a message they weren’t expecting: ‘If that’s what you want me to be, I’ll be that.’

“Y’all know the word that I’m talking about. Obamacare! That’s right! I said it and I’m not ashamed, and neither is President Obama!” (More HERE)

Martin Bashir Resigns From MSNBC Following Disgusting Comments Made about Sarah Palin

HE’S OUT …  Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC.

Another one bites the dust at MSNBC; however, this time it was a resignation. The Politico is reporting that MSNBC’s  Martin Bashir has resigned following the controversy and uproar started when the BSNBC host made sick and disgusting remarks toward former Alaska governor and GOP Vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Bashir had been on vacation since making the offensive comments and was forced to make an apology after he called Palin on air  “a world class idiot”  because she made a comparison to slavery while discussing U.S. debt to China and an even more vulgar slave punishment comment after that. All that and he still was not fired by NBC.

MSNBC daytime host Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC following controversial remarks he made about Sarah Palin, MSNBC president Phil Griffin announced on Wednesday.

“Martin Bashir resigned today, effective immediately. I understand his decision and I thank him for three great years with MSNBC,”  Griffin said in a written statement. “Martin is a good man and respected colleague  — we wish him only the best.”

In his own statement, first published by Mediaite, Bashir announced that he had tendered his resignation following a meeting with Griffin and “further reflection” on his controversial remarks, in which he suggested that the former Alaska governor be forced to endure slavery-like conditions.

VIDEO – Newsbusters.com

In 1756, he records that “A slave named Darby catched eating canes; had him well flogged and pickled, then made Hector, another slave, s-h-i-t in his mouth.” This became known as Darby’s dose, a punishment invented by Thistlewood that spoke only of the slave owners savagery and inhumanity.

When Mrs. Palin invoked slavery, she doesn’t just prove her rank ignorance. She confirms that if anyone truly qualified for a dose of discipline from Thomas Thistlewood, then she would be the outstanding candidate.

It really does beg the question, how does one resign and not get fired for such offensive, planned comments made on air, unless the network agrees with the comments, but just can’t take the heat? Bashir hasn’t been on the air since November 22. MSNBC said he was on a pre-planned vacation, but it appears the vacation has turned into a resignation. MSNBC and parent company NBC still have literally taken no public action against Brashir for his comments. How amazing was the lack of punishment against Brashir for his vulgar comments, even Lefty Alec Baldwin had to question why he was fired and Brashir was not.

The Other McCain has other low-lights of Brashir’s past comments which the suits at NBC had no issue with either. And here are some others.

Statements from Brashir and Phil Griffin:

Martin Bashir: “After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the President of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation. It is my sincere hope that all of my colleagues, at this special network, will be allowed to focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments. I deeply regret what was said, will endeavor to work hard at making constructive contributions in the future and will always have a deep appreciation for our viewers – who are the smartest, most compassionate and discerning of all television audiences. I would also wish to express deepest gratitude to my immediate colleagues, and our contributors, all of whom have given so much of themselves to our broadcast.”

MSNBC president Phil Griffin: “Martin Bashir resigned today, effective immediately. I understand his decision and I thank him for three great years with MSNBC. Martin is a good man and respected colleague – we wish him only the best.”

Good man and respected colleague, eh?

Alec Baldwin Fired from MSNBC for Anti-Gay Slurs … Baldwin Points Out Hypocrisy, Asks Why “Martin Bashir’s On the Air” with Comment He Made About Sarah Palin “On the Air”

Alec Balwin is out at MSNBC …

The NY Post is reporting that MSNBC has had it with Alec Baldwin and fired him. It would appear his latest unhinged rant was just the final excuse that MSNBC needed to whack Baldwin and his weak ratings show after just four episodes. My that was quick. It would appear though that according to reports that Baldwin was quite the PITA diva. Baldwin’s unhinged antics reported by the media would appear to have been common place at MSNBC as well by the classy Baldwin.  But that is what happens when you screamed at a media photographer, calling him a “c—s—ing faggot.”

Just how bad must Baldwin truly have been to deal with for an uber-lib like him being given his walking slip by liberal BSNBC?

Fired

The rage-aholic’s weekly show, “Up Late With Alec Baldwin,” was canceled Tuesday because of the actor’s foul-mouthed, homophobic rant at a New York Post photographer.

Baldwin’s spokesman Matthew Hiltzik and a rep for the cable channel said, “We are jointly confirming that ‘Up Late’ will not continue on MSNBC.” The MSNBC spokeswoman added, “This is a mutual parting and we wish Alec all the best.”

Baldwin was suspended — supposedly for two weeks — after he screamed at a Post photographer, calling him a “c—s—ing faggot.” The “30 Rock” star was supposed to resume his weekly show Friday.

Besides demanding a humidifier because he claimed the air at 30 Rock was too dry, Baldwin alienated colleagues when he demanded a separate makeup room that was being used by a woman with cancer who is sensitive to hairspray.

When Baldwin was told he couldn’t have his way, he allegedly bellowed at the top of his lungs, “I don’t give a f?-?-?k if she has cancer or not, I want that f?-?-?king makeup room.”

MSLSD

As reported at Page Six, Baldwin was impossible to work with and became more and more impossible to work with as his ratings sunk. What a combination, a male diva, a bomb of a show and a lib who did not want to work hard. There is a recipe for success. In typical Alec Baldwin style, he pretty much blamed others for the show’s demise as Baldwin blamed “the fundamentalist wing of gay advocacy” for the show’s cancellation. Baldwin said, “They killed my show. And I have to take some responsibility for that myself.”

A network source told Page Six’s Emily Smith, “The frustration set in several weeks ago. All Baldwin’s shows were unwatchable. He assumed it would be a success, and when he saw the ratings were a disaster, he stopped wanting to do a lot of work for a little audience.

“Baldwin found out that cable news is tough, and stopped making an effort,” said the source.

This is good, when LIBS attack each other It would appear that Alec Baldwin told the Gothamist that there seems to be just a little bit of hypocrisy as he was fired, yet Martin Bashir made an over the top comments about Sarah Palin on air and nothing happened to him, not even a suspension. C’mon man, you know better than that Alec … you can call a conservative woman every name in the book and wish anything upon her, as for gay slurs, that is strictly verboden.

“Martin Bashir’s on the air, and he made his comment on the air! I dispute half the comment I made… if I called him ‘c*cksucking maggot’ or a ‘c*cksucking motherf*cker’… ‘faggot’ is not the word that came out of my mouth. That I know. But you’ve got the fundamentalist wing of gay advocacy—Rich Ferraro and Andrew Sullivan—they’re out there, they’ve got you. Rich Ferraro, this is probably one of his greatest triumphs. They killed my show. And I have to take some responsibility for that myself.”
