Want to see Rachel Maddow interview Chomsky, at length, on MSNBC? Check in HERE.

It's time Noam Chomsky gets some airtime on Corporate TV, whether they like it or not.

MSNBC is losing credibility fast, IMO, by NEVER having Chomsky, Chris Hedges or Glen Ford on.

Yet lying wackos get on FOX and CNN all the time (MSNBC even shows FOX excerpts,
giving the wackos even more time).

Let's figure out a way to put some pressure.

I would love to see a special, full hour interview with Chomsky,
by Rachel Maddow, on MSNBC.

I'll bet millions of other people would too.

Certainly some viewers would be uninterested. I get that. But those who would OPPOSE it,
must be frightened of freedom-of-speech.

Maybe a petition would also help?

I'm open to suggestions.

But please check-in/acknowledge here if you agree.

Thank you.

1. The Corporate Media will Only Interview Him if they have a Need for his Views

 

But, yes... I would love to see that happen, so I recced your post.

2. If nothing else...

 

I would like to get a statement from MSNBC on WHY they never interview or reference
these prominent intellectuals?

I can't believe Rachel would have nothing to ask Chomsky.

It would definitely be fascinating.
And a ratings-kick.

It could even be brilliant.

4. Chomsky will never be on corporate TV.

The only place you will catch him with any frequency is Amy Goodman's Democracy Now. I doubt even Rachel would have him on MSNBC.

5. MSNBC is to the left what a strip show is to actual sex

I'm with Bill Cosby, who never understood the attraction of strip shows: "I mean, when you're hungry," Cos once remarked. "You don't go watch a guy cooking a steak."

6. I would pay money to see that!

 

Chomsky has been on TV in other countries. Only not the US.
Even though I have seen him many times, I would love to see him on ANY commercial TV station.
What would be great is having him on Faux Noose, and watching him make a total fool of anyone interviewing him.

Better, an all out, battle to the death with Richard Wolff, Noam Chomsky, Chris Hedges, Arundhati Roy, and Angela Davis, vs
Rush, O'Reilly, Hannity, Beck, and Savage.

Oh, how I wish Howard Zinn were alive today, to talk to all this crap!

7. I'm curious...

 

What does anyone think MSNBC's/Rachel's public excuse would be for not having him on?

Anybody have a guess?

8. Do you know what Corporate Sponsors Rachel has?

I don't have a TV but read that Exxon is one. Next time somebody watches her be sure to see who sponsors the show because that could affect Noam from ever showing up.




I would love to see it happen but its not democracy now.

9. Maybe Maddow and Chomsky BOTH have fewer fans than I thought.

 

Perhaps America's news is so milquetoast and irrelevant
because that is what most Americans prefer?
