Can there be ANY doubt that the MSNBC is simply an extension of BushCo.?
MSNBC is working overtime today whoring for BushCo. They are re-running many of same pieces about Saddam that were run before the war. Before the war they ran these monuments to propaganda as part of well thought out plan to gin up fear and demonize Saddam. Now they are running the SAME stories to remind Americans of why the piles and piles of dead people were worth the effort.

I have been convinced that most of the major media corporations have been compromised for years, but the level of naked attempts at mind control and the reporting of unvarnished propaganda as news still astound me.

1. GE's profits were way up last year. Bush is great for defense contractors.
Of course they love him and any war he chooses.

4. ALL the news channels are doing this now
CNN has gone from a thinly veiled GOP mouthpiece to blatant, in-your-face cheerleading. Every story is a happy one of hope of wonderfulness, and happy Iraqis thrilled at being able to cast their first vote. Of course, most of the Iraqis they talk to are in safe havens, like the US. But let's not quibble on the details. The details won't matter when the BushCo machine is writing the script for MSNBCNNFOX to broadcast. It's gonna be wonderful, and we'll they'll we're ready to move on (but we won't really be doing anything different), and all the while the death toll will mount as George Walker Bush's denial will take it's place in history as the most dangerous WMD ever launched.

6. No more than any other MSM outlet in this country
They do employ Keith Olberman which is better than a lot of the others.

9. Don't expect them to admit it. They're all still part of the "liberal
media" of popular mythology.

10. Voting "yea" they all do it.
Today CNN is running a mostly glowing biography of Rummy the strick daddy. I think that what makes CNN worse than Fox, is that most of loons who watch Fox have some sense that they are getting pro-bush news (fabrications); but those same loons are completely convinced along with many other Americans, that CNN is liberal. IOW, the shit CNN has been pulling goes unquestioned. BTW, CNN is getting worse by the minute.

MSNBC is an arm of the MIC. Any break in the propaganda is never enough to change the equation.
