MSNBC's Morning Joe discusses " The Conservative Entertainment Complex" (with video)

This is the news program "Morning Joe" discussing what has come to be known as the C-E-C. This stands for the Conservative Entertainment Complex. This is an entire media industry driven by media outlets such as FOX News, The Drudge Report and Rush Limbaugh. These entities don't report news, but broadcast untrue stories, conservative talking points and Republican propaganda to increase their audiences size and popularity.

Over time what has developed is an entire Republican "news bubble" where conservatives get their news. This new " GOP news bubble" is void of facts, differentiating points of view and even reality. This is part of what led conservatives to believe that Romney was likely to win on election night. For the entire campaign, conservatives were being fed affirmation stories, when objective polling and news outlets correctly reported Obama as very likely to win.

Conservatives are increasingly rejecting facts, math, science and even basic news because it does not fit their viewpoints. This is the founding base of the CEC.

11. Disturbing picture

He sits comfortably, dressed comfortably, relaxed pose. She poses in a seriously uncomfortable pose, short dress, high heels not fit for actual human walking, leg in the air, flesh exposed. He looks at us, big grin on his face, she pouts and looks at him. All that is missing is a leash - even the neck line of her dress is somewhat evocative of a dog collar, at least within the context of this picture. The picture says everything about the power differentiation in that TV relationship. Very disturbing.

12. She has two teenaged daughters and is always talking about parental responsibility!

I wonder how she manages to justify this pose to them! And what about her husband? I wonder what he had to say about this...

2. Isn't his program one of those in the "C.E.C"? They are certainly close to Fox 'news'

in their views and his vomiting the same line of crap qualifies him for membership.

10. Agreed. I have no idea where her fan base comes from.


Sometimes I think she is just there to help Joe promote his macho image by having him shout her down the 1 or 2 times per week she even has a relevant point.

I have a friend who calls her "Meek-A" instead of Mika.

And I don't mind saying this... For a woman who is suppose to be "all about pay equality" I don't think her actions on the show often do a real good job promoting women equality in the work place.


If I were a producer or TV news exec, and I saw a segment like the one above.... "Why the heck would I pay Mika the same as everyone else?"

16. How ironic

Isn't Morning Joe Washington's go-to place for the day's memo on conservative talking points?
