Politico, the unofficial web-branch of MSNBC, and whose staff spends more time on MSNBC than Chris Matthews, has a so-called reporter named Joseph Williams who all but called Mitt Romney a racist on Martin Bashir’s show today. – Breitibart
POLITICO AND PENIS JOKES, lovely. But seriously, have people watched “Fox and Friends” lately? It’s a non-stop negative ad against Pres. Obama, just without the d*@! jokes.
Some in the chattering class will say the media conversation is all a distraction. However, considering how much the traditional and new media played to Barack Obama in ’08, it’s important to note that you can’t get fair coverage without some discipline from the media, which Joe Williams clearly does not have.
Having two whole cable networks geared for their favorite big two party, it’s also pretty astounding that CNN still can’t find their groove. I’ve really never seen such bad talent casting before. Even Current TV is managing to field some exploratory shows that are interesting to see flail around.
But when was the last time you heard any of the networks cover Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson or Progressive upstart Rocky Anderson? They can’t even get a good scandal going.
Unfortunately, since the public is besotted with the binary Obama-Romney Super Bowl it’s unlikely they ever will.
