Before I share my real thoughts on Charles Davis' sensational piece on unpaid labor at liberal/progressive newsites, let me take you back three years ago in my life, you want to read.
(To note: If you get a chance in your day, I highly recommend you read that piece if you aren't aware of it yet. I wasn't at the Kos yesterday, so not sure if anyone did a post or thread about it, so apologize if there is a repeat for sure and will try and acknowledge any one that did write on this here)
(Hope this won't be too long for you all)
Back in the archaic, colorless TV days of June 2008, I came to this great site bemused by how our centrist, corporate media still didn't want to do its job in bashing how Republican/conservative ideology had failed America and almost completely ruin the country (and arguably the rest of the world) with the Cheney Administration.
I saw an excerpt in the New York Daily News highlighting notable words from blogs on both the left and the right, and below a ridiculous Red State trash comment saying that "Senator Obama called Canadian Prime Minister Harper 'President Harper,' meaning he is not fit to be president," was just a common sense rational excerpt from Daily Kos on John McCain's clown campaign beginning to start the comedy fest it inevitably became.
I really think Rachel Maddow is a wonderful person, and so do many people around here. Her four year show has followed in the footsteps of Countdown to become MSNBC's #1 reliable show, regardes of how you feel about the network in general still having its limitations.
But as most have documented how awful Ezra Klein was in many diaries down low in his talk about the fiscal curve (because we know that's the accurate title instead of fear-mongering intentional crap from Beltway centrist and nutty elites), what happened Friday evening on Rachel's show is something that should be on standard, poor news shows like standard "both sides do something" anchor Chris Jansing and not Maddow's.
The fact that Peter Orszag, one of Klein's apparently comfortable sources to talk to regularly in the last four years, was not even challenged last night for basically advocating for austerity with Social Security and Medicare raised really was galling to any rational person in America watching.
You see that folks. That is my article when I had the pleasure to work for The Raw Story, and it was highlighted on MSNBC during their coverage of the Republican National Convention. Rachel Maddow talked about it in a segment about how Mitty Binders hates that exotic equal pay thingy for the female gender.
And that was all possible because of you. Yes, you read correctly, you.
You helped write that article even without jotting down one single word.
It was disgraceful and embarrassing when Mike Bloomberg decided that President Obama wasn't worth having to see the biggest damage the three islands of New York has ever witnessed, especially when Chris Christie of all people knew that he himself required the services of the most powerful person in the nation.
But the disrespectful decision has become probably fitting, because Obama should not have to be witness to a mayoral job so shameful, the Atlantic needs to hide itself in humiliation for ever placing Bloomberg on any of its magazine covers.
Always at the heart of The Very Serious, centrist media's ultimate desperation to make this election be a neck and neck horse race is one Mo(u)rning Jo(k)e.
Now this segment, featuring the usual, great, centrist, Very Serious disgrace Jon Meachem of course, was so desperate to still paint Ohio as a see-saw contest that instead of the "Likely Voters" model (which shows Obama up decently in Ohio), and the Registered Voter model (which will always show any "swing state" with an edge to Obama), they chose instead to use something I have never seen used before on TV.
One of the few, great things about this ridiculous general election campaign filled with more peculiar, elitist, nutty, arrogant, unhinged, and downright idiotic Republican and conservative behavior is the fact that a lot of annoying people of the past have been largely rendered irrelevant.
Peggy "Brooklyn has diversity!" Noonan, David "Applebees" Brooks, David Frum, Mark McKinnon, and many other prod hacks, liars, and deceivers have not be considered important enough to change conversations this election and maybe forever now.
I remember yesterday when some condemned my ridiculous, inane idea that a moderator should fact-check during a debate.
Well, look what happened last night.
