Why I think that MSNBC is the most biased channel
Listen to Ed Schulz, who works for MSNBC, as he takes a call from a mildly critical caller to his radio show. (H/T NewsBusters)
See, an outburst like this is why I am not at all convinced that left-wingers would protect the rights to free speech of those who disagree with them. It seems to me that there is some fundamental disrespect for the human rights of others that is grounded by the secular-left’s worldview.
Here’s another left-winger, Tamarin Hall, from MSNBC. (H/T Hot Air)
Here’s another MSNBC left-winger, Rachel Maddow. (H/T American Power Blog via Blazing Cat Fur)
News Busters has more detail on Maddow’s reaction to Obama’s Cairo speech here.
The best one of all is here at Hot Air, in which Newsweek’s Evan Thomas is interviewed by Chris Matthews on MSNBC! Thomas says, “I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God.”.
Check out this interview by Keith Olbermann, also of MSNBC, with Steven Crowder.
Well, it’s not really Keith. So this video is fake, but accurate.
Contrast MSNBC with FoxNews
Contrast the fawning over Obama you see on MSNBC, with Charles Krauthammer on Fox News. (H/T Hot Air)
Krauthammer is too moderate for me, but at least he’s a journalist, not a sycophant.
The Western Experience
Here is a more even-handed reaction to Obama’s Cairo speech from Jason at the Western Extern Experience. He has a round-up of stories from Lebanon, Palestine and Iran that shows what is really at stake.
Here are a few of the more disturbing headlines:
- Guardian UK | Lebanon vote likely to shift power to Hezbollah
- Fox News | Obama Overture to Hamas Suggests Inevitability of Terror Group’s Dominance Among Palestinians
- Washington Post | Iran in major nuclear expansion, UN oversight harder
This is what Obama should have talked about, but didn’t. Appeasement didn’t work for Chamberlain or Carter, and it won’t work for Obama.
What’s at stake?
The Washington Post reports that drug cartels use submarines to move massive amounts of drugs into the United States. The write that “U.S. officials fear that the rogue vessels could be used by terrorists intent on reaching the United States with deadly cargos”. Maybe Obama should be focused on defending the United States instead of apologizing on our behalf in order to send tingles up the legs of MSNBC talking heads.
Will Obama’s speeches deter aggression of this sort? Or will they be viewed as evidence that no reprisals would follow such an attack?
