Shuster compares Obama’s “indoctrination” of little school children to Bush reading My Pet Goat

Sounds like a joke, doesn’t it, but he was serious – which is the joke, I guess.

This is the depths to which David Shuster (MSNBC) is willing to go in order to justify anything this administration does or says.  He’s talking here about the indoctrination implied in asking school children to write essays on what they want to do to help Obama and to memorize quotes from Obama.  They should be thinking about what they could do for their country – not Obama.  But never the less…..

Here is an exchange between Shuster and Michael Leahy:

SHUSTER: Mike, I’m going to give you one more chance. I’m going to try one more time with a yes-or-no. Was it a subversive threat when George W. Bush read “My Pet Goat” on 9/11, which essentially might have encouraged kids to go out and get a pet goat even though in Florida, where he was giving the speech, it’s against the law to have a goat unless you’re on a farm, so was the president trying to encourage kids to subvert the law when he did that?

LEAHY: David, you are so in the tank for Barack Obama, you should be on the White House communication staff, not at MSNBC.

Yep. I have a feeling he’s already on the payroll, but if he went to the WH then he wouldn’t be able to broadcast his drivel for an hour every day.

See Newsbusters for audio and video of this example of what MSNBC passes off as “news” every day.

But more on the children:

Catch the MoveOn Monster

Pro Obama health care protester bites off finger of 65 year old man. Who is the man to the far right dressed in black? Call Crime Stoppers with tips: 800-222-TIPS.

finger biter 2

An altercation begins between William Rice, right, in khaki shirt and olive shorts, and an unidentified man wearing black, who authorities say bit off Rice’s little finger. Anyone with information about the biting incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.

I noticed yesterday that both David Shuster and I believe Rachel Maddow too were quite amused that the man was a Medicare recipient. Yeah, 65 years old, stands to reason. He has paid a part of his salary for his entire working life (by law) into Medicare, and his employer contributed an equal amount, so he SHOULD have  Medicare.  That doesn’t mean he wants what is now designed for older Americans to take over the whole system, especially since it is widely believed that Medicare is going Broke.  That makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it, if something is unsustainable, make it 500 times bigger.

But I guess that makes it okay for the Moveon.org guy to bite off his finger? The stinking hypocrital media. Can you see it if it had been the other way around? What if a member of the “mob” had done the biting? I wouldn’t want to see it.

The Obama Chronicles, Part I and II (Video) Funny

Okay. MSNBC has made me really mad now. Today’s David and Tamron show was more than I could stomach. According to them and their guest, those who question the president’s origin and birth are mainly just “racist white people from the south.”

Was Barack Obama born in Hawaii? Was he born in Kenya? Was he born on the high seas? Was he born in Bethlehem or maybe he came in on a spacecraft from Mars.

But in honor of his birthday, and lest I lose my sense of humor entirely, I’ll just repost these videos straight out of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Happy Birthday, Mr. President. That is if you really have a birthday.  So sorry we couldn’t get Marilyn Monroe here for ya’.  Hope ya have yore best lil day evah.


“He entered into Jerusalem and the network anchors who had followed from afar cried Hosanna and waved great palm fronds and strewed them at his feet…..and in a instant, the lion lay down with the lamb.

Then suddenly, the angels and all the heavenly hosts were singing praises and crying…..

Yes, we can.  Yes, we can.  Yes, we can.”

Million dollars per day since Jesus was born


“Suppose you spent $1 million every single day starting from the day Jesus was born — and kept spending through today,” says the announcer as an image of the three wise men flashes on the screen. “A million dollars a day for more than 2,000 years. You would still have spent less money than Congress just did.”

See this new video that started airing yesterday. Ends with Charles Schumer saying that the American people (AKA the chattering class) just don’t care about the little tiny porky amendments.

MSNBC just gave the video “mention” but did not play it. This is on the David “Shyster” program. Shuster says “what’s the point?” of the video. They are having a little difficulty keeping ahead of the criticism of the stimulus bill and it is increasingly more difficult for MSNBC and CNN to provide cover for Obama and make him look good. Now Jonathan Capehart is on to reinforce the disdain for the video, and the “so what?” defense. Capehart has been on MSNBC since what seems like the beginning of time promoting Barack Obama.

I just heard a statement made by Alan Keyes that makes me want to say “Alan Keyes for President.”

Fireworks: Palin interviewer tells David Shuster MSNBC is a joke

From Media Bistro:

When “Media Malpractice” filmmaker John Ziegler appeared on MSNBC to discuss the You Tube videos that were released of his interview with Gov. Sarah Palin, some fireworks could be expected. The interview did not disappoint.

David Shuster interviewed Ziegler this afternoon, and the filmmaker took on MSNBC as a whole. “I believe that her character was assassinated, David, and I think this network played an enormous role in that process,” said Ziegler.

Later, Ziegler said: “You’ve clearly seen this through the prejudiced eye of MSNBC, which has had an agenda since the beginning of the campaign, pro Obama, against Palin, it continues today. And it’s very obvious to everybody you’re a joke.”

Shuster responded: “Right, as opposed to the agenda of people like you, to boost Sarah Palin, who is clearly unqualified. Most Americans, 65%, say she’s unqualified. You and your colleagues are trying to circle back and get her ready for 2012.”

What poll was that, Mr. Shuster?

Now, MSNBC a joke?  Let’s take a poll on that!

Watch the video of the interview, if you can call it that, at Media Bistro. (Or maybe it’s TV Newser, I don’t know.)

MSNBC Hoaxed By “Source” of Palin Post-Campaign Gossip

NEW YORK (AP) – MSNBC was the victim of a hoax when it reported that an adviser to John McCain had identified himself as the source of an embarrassing story about former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, the network said Wednesday.

David Shuster, an anchor for the cable news network, said on air Monday that Martin Eisenstadt, a McCain policy adviser, had come forth and identified himself as the source of a Fox News Channel story saying Palin had mistakenly believed Africa was a country instead of a continent.

Martin Eisenstadt doesn’t exist.  He is a hoax.

They were so thrilled to repeat a negative story on Sarah Palin, that they didn’t care, they didn’t vet the source.  MSNBC has been the long arm of the Obama campaign for the entire election season so they are more than happy to report this stuff as hard news.  Once you lose your objectivity and go all out for one candidate, it is not much of a stretch to accept any story or any source out there.

But this piece goes on to say:

The hoax was limited to the identity of the source in the story about Palin—not the Fox News story itself. While Palin has denied that she mistook Africa for a country, the veracity of that report was not put in question by the revelation that [Martin] Eisenstadt is a phony.

Here they still want to cling to the chance it is true, even though Palin has denied it.

“Carly” Cameron of Fox News was, oh, so, a-twitter to report it to begin with, using an anonymous source.  Anonymous source?  This isn’t about some crime or felonious activity, it’s not Watergate, for goodness sake.   It was gossip in the beginning and it remains gossip.  But break it down, there were three points — three irrelevant points — something about Africa being a country, about not knowing the countries in NAFTA, and the clothes.  None of it matters and never has there been any proof she said anything of the sort.  Where is the proof?

There are well upwards of 60 or more recorded verbal gaffes that Mr. Obama made during the campaign.  And do we even want to get into Sarah Palin’s counterpart, Joe Biden, AKA the gaffe machine?  There could have been an entire program devoted to them because some are quite humorous.  Two that come to mind are Mr. Obama’s blunders about there being 57, maybe 58 states, and thinking Canada has a president.

This compilation of gaffes and blunders is my favorite, with the Chris Matthews bonus, but bear in mind this is only a few because there are many, many more than shown on this video :

So, give me a break.  CNN, MSNBC, and even FOX, because of this gossip reported by Carl Cameron,  have lost all credibility with me.  They all should really be ashamed of how they have let the people down during this election.
