Ok. So we've established the assholes in MSM are incapable of reporting the news. We know there is a concerted effort by the MSM to make the race competitive, but you and i know, Obama is way ahead in this election.

According to a fellow Kos diarist, MSNBC's Joe 'Redneck' Scarborough went on a racist tirade this morning about Barack Obama. And i understand people are outraged and rightfully so, i will provide NBC's Political Director email address below.  Its also been brought to my attention that this morning CNN devoted a segment to Rudy Guiliani to bash Hillary Clinton's speech last night.

NBC Political Director Chuck Todd's email;

Isn't obvious the MSM was praying for chaos at the convention and now that their plans have been foiled, they're making trouble of their own by smearing the dems. Sad!!

Remember there are other networks to watch the DNC convention.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    If any of us have a problem with Joe, or Rudy, they are the ones to contact.  Filling Chuck Todd's mail box with rants serves no purpose beyond making us seem crazy.

  •  The press is desperate to make this a horse race (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    no matter what.

    It would be boring (and their ratings would tank) if the reality, that reality being that McCain doesn't have anyone who will go balls to the wall for him let alone care if they vote for him.  He's going to get creamed.

    This isn't a horse race, Hillary doesn't have a cabal of no one but her voters waiting to take the win from Barack, McCain doesn't have a secret and enthusiastic base, and Barack isn't going to lose.

    Again, no horse race here.  What we have is a blowout.

    So, let the press portray this as a close horse race.  That'll make sure that the kids and slackers, aging hippies, blacks, latinas, asians, ex-Republicans, middle class whites will alll turn out to vote because we want to be SURE that the Rethuglicans have their faces pounded into the dirt.

    Not. This. Time.  Yer goin' down, Rethuglicans.

  •  don't forget the RADIO. (0+ / 0-)

    it's a pretty great way for the convention, actually.  some of the speakers' physical presence and facial expressions really irritate me, get in the way of my being able to appreciate the words.  (i can listen to hillary, but don't ask me to look at her)  anyway. it's super old-school but i'm all about the radio broadcast.   makes me feel like i'm experiencing it right where i am instead of watching something happening very far away.  

    •  problem with that is.... (0+ / 0-)

      others ARE watching, and getting the body language.  And there are lots more of them.  I wanna know what they're seeing.

    that man has a brilliant analysis of her tepid speech. whatever u say, this lady is untrustworthy. Until the roll call vote is complete I do not trust her. Who do u think is putting out the whole buyers remorse thing? If she wanted healing she would have taken her name off the nomination. This is a pattern with HRC, she "shows" people that she is nice and then does something for which everyone will hate her. I am suspicious of her and I will always be. Her speech was ok. Not brilliant at all. lets see what she does at the roll call vote. then we can all gush.

  •  Chuck Todd has been pushing back but to no (8+ / 0-)


    Even yesterday evening, Brian Williams spoke with Andrea Mitchell about the impact of HRC's speech and then went to Chuck Todd to discuss the significance of Wednesday - Bill Clinton's speech.  Todd immediately corrected him and said it's about Biden not Clinton.  Biden is the VP and gives one hell of a speech.

    This morning with Joe Schmuck Todd was discussing the box that McCain is in with his VP choices and could not select Whitman or Fiorina.  Some one threw out Condi Rice's name and he explained that when it comes to the Presidency, single people just don't make it.  He used Bob Kerry in 1992 against Bill and Hill.  

    Andrea said that Charlie Crist got married for the VP nod and she was corrected by Joe Schmuck asking "isn't he still engaged?" to which Todd replied, "not after Friday if he doesn't get the vp nod." After that remark everyone tried to distance themselves from Todd.

    Even Todd knows Christ is marrying his beard.

    NEVER EVER assume that we are way ahead.

    I don't believe for a minute that we are, and even if we were, NEVER EVER behave as though we are not behind.  Turnout is going to be big in this election; turnout of people who don't usually do so especially.

  •  NBC pimps Luke Russert. (0+ / 0-)

    Chuck Todd claims Hillary has the most experience of any woman currently in office (nevermind that other females have been in the Senate longer than Hillary.)

    CBS analyzes Hillary's body language to claim she didn't mean what she said.

    David Brooks on PBS continues to be a baffoon with bogus talking points and stupid slams.

    None of them are all that great.  At least PBS is showing some of the speeches in their entirety without allowing the pundits to talk over them.
