MSNBC whores' eyebrows knit together in worry as they discuss *'s
inability to get attention after his speech. That damn hurricane and the massacre in Russia are stealing AWOL's thunder. I may be sick.

1. Payback time
The swift boat liars stole Kerry's thunder.

Kerry was right to speak out at midnight (EST). That stole some of GWB's high.

As Lynn Cullen said, "God hates Republicans." (referring to Frances overshadowing Bush's speech.

13. Kerry released excerpts of his speech early in Ohio - did he make
the headlines in Ohio papers?

26. Some, not all - but got mentions in all of them
The Ohio papers didn't have pictures because the rally came after their deadlines.

Sampling:
Dayton Daily News Big, separate story online with GREAT photos (don't know about the print edition)
http://www.daytondailynews.com/localnews/content/localn... (requires a subscription, but it's free and definitely worth doing to check out the photos!)

Cleveland Plain Dealer - Separate story on Page A15, teased on Page A15: KERRY FIRES BACK: Democrat says President Bush "unfit to lead this nation."

However, Kerry's remarks are mentioned in the lead Bush story, on the first page above the fold: Kerry wasted no time getting started, striking back with a ferocious attack at a midnight rally in Springfield, Ohio.http://www.cleveland.com/frontpage/pdfs/today.pdf

Cincinnati Enquirer Not a separate story, but AP story quoted Kerry. http://www.cincinnatienquirer.com

2. You can't be serious
I am sick in my heart about those kids in Russia and I can't imagine anyone saying that that story is interfering with *'s post-speech press.

I am a pacifist but days like this make me want to buy a gun. Seriously.

5. The "Compassionate Conservative" MUST come first!
Bush first, everything else later.



"An injured boy is rushed away from the siege school Friday."



"A pupil is comforted by his mother as he awaits an ambulance."



"A schoolboy is helped away from the Beslan school."



"A woman hostage is placed outside the school on a stretcher."

This behavior is nothing new on the part of our media. I'm giving my opinion about something I observed, and nothing more. I believe that is perfectly clear.

17. with that logic we can assume
That, Ron Reagen Jr, Bill Press, Rick Kaplan, Debra Norville, Keith Olberman were all a part of this pity party for shrub...that is doubtful!

Next time note the people involved, it's not asking too much..is it?

31. who was attacking?
and what kind of reply is "The links almost always follow". Shit you sound as bad as those swift boat liars, "we will say what we want and at some point down the road we will try to give you information to back it up".

The only reason I wanted the info is because MSNBC has been doing a much better job of calling shrub out on some of his garbage. There has been an uptick in the viewer ratings and CNN has fallen behind.

What kind of logic and laziness is it for you to defend a post that was thrown together on a temper tantrum without specifics. This wasn't an "ATTACK" nor was it meant to be.

whether the individuals are named. I think nitpicking, this falls into the category of "getting a life."

32. and that means what?
Because this is DU you can slap together anything without providing detailed information to back up a broad brush statement? Crazy.

Poster this wasn't an attack on you. More information was needed for your broadbrush statement, that is all.

35. What a ridiculous statement.
I noted what I observed and you call it a temper tantrum. Well, I've been mad at the media for 4 years now because I have seen it giving AWOL a pass over and over. What I feel is stone cold rage over this media assisted fascist coup. YOU may not believe there is a rightwing media bias, but I guarantee you are in the minority here. And I intend to point out each and every media whore incident I see, regardless of whether I have the exact names of reporters, as long as I please. Why don't you start an MSNBC love post if you are so offended.

37. I think your a personality that
has to do everything they can to get the last word in.

and stop with your soap box rant. No one told you to stop pointing out "media whores". You were asked to give a lil more information so others here who actually do see a change for the better in MSNBC have an idea of who and what you are talking about.

It's amazing what people do when laziness is shown on their part. Chill!

23. Expect plenty more to come
the corporate media's bought-and-paid-for whores will close ranks around * through November. Look for debates with even softer questions than 2000, and the media dissecting every twitch and movement by Kerry while lionizing "everyman" *.

The other day Woodruff asked Bloomberg if he, like Giuliani, praised god that * was president on 9/11.

27. I wouldn't wish it on anyone
I wouldn't wish a hostage situation, a super-typhoon level hurricane, or quadruple bypass surgery on anyone -- not even Bush*, unless I were in a really, really bad mood. But the fact is that between Russia, Frances and now Clinton, Bush* really is having his news cycle stolen from him, due to circumstances entirely beyond the control of Bush* or Rove.

Who thinks that God is on Bush*'s side?

29. I'm waiting for someone to use the "trifecta" joke on Bush's behalf..
.. or perhaps Bush, himself, will use it. In light of the three things taking attention away from him..
