Sam Seder is an honest guy, has a great podcast show and deserves our support


Sam is under attack from the alt right. They are using the typical rightwing bullshit and lie tactics to smear him

I have listened to Sam for almost 15 years, going back to the Air America days. He has a podcast and I listen all the time and highly reccomend it

You can find the start page here --

https://majority.fm/report/

Most shows are available for free. I like the Friday shows the most, he has Cliff Schecter on to do the week in review

Sometimes he has Digby on, which is always good!

Give it a try, listen to a few shows. And if you like it please make a donation to help out with expenses

Keep in mind the rightwingers have people like the Koch brothers and Mercers to finance and prop up media outlets. There are no big fat cat media financers on the left, so it's up to us to do what we can

You can make donation here
https://majority.fm/support-the-show

Check out the show, I think you'll like it


Best
Kelley

1. ...and he has a real turn of phrase...

ďDonít care re Polanski, but I hope if my daughter is ever raped it is by an older truly talented man w/ a great sense of mise en scene,Ē


But, I guess if he's on "our" side.....

2. The sarcasm was painfully obvious. There is nothing wrong with that tweet.

 

It was a condemnation of people defending Polanski by talking about how talented he was and how people should let it go because of his age.

10. Tweet was fine. SEDER is relentlessly anti-Democrat,

and spent the entire 2015-2016 campaign period spreading slurs against the Democratic Party and candidates, above all -- of course -- Hillary Clinton.

Of course MSNBC should never have been associated with dishonest spinners like Seder. I am wondering what the real reasons are. This nothingberger joke was out there for months.

Seder's site and podcasts are STILL full of statements that would violate DU's TOS if posted here.

Seder dishonesty means he OWNs what Trump and the Repubs are doing with the power he helped give them.

Btw, "interesting" crowd that gathers over there at "Majority Report" to slime Democrats, KelleyKramer. Strong smell of the same brand of hostile extremism from the outcasts over on Jackpine. A quick glance at the list of podcast titles brought up by searching on Hillary and a couple other terms explains why they are there.

14. Yea, he is a little too like the Young Turks for my taste....

 

But the truth is the truth and this hit job based on that tweet is total bullshit.

19. Thank you for that truthful reminder and comparison! You are absolutely correct.

This...
Seder's site and podcasts are STILL full of statements that would violate DU's TOS if posted here.
...and this ...
Seder dishonesty means he OWNs what Trump and the Repubs are doing with the power he helped give them.

Nailed it!

18. and

I would say you could not find another post or pattern of him saying something like that.

It is not him.

The original poster is correct about Sam and his show,

He has integrity

4. Come on, it was clearly sarcasm.

And he was in no way condoning rape.

5. Its sad that MSNBC cut ties with him.

Iím so pissed at these right wing lunatics! Mike Cernaovich and Sebastian G are responsible for this.
I watch Sam all the time. He didnít deserve this.

13. My support for prosecuting minor sexual misconduct acts ends......

....when it's demonstrably and maliciously in the service of neo-Nazi freaks like Gorka. I stand with Sam, and I suggest others do the same. The alt-righters have played us enough, already.

16. Sam Seder & The Majority Report is the only thing that has kept me from jumping off a cliff

this year! During the dreaded Bush years he kept me informed, engaged and active whether it was on Air American, Breakroom Live, The Majority Report or Ring of Fire. His appearance on Dylan Ratigan was the only reason I started watching MSNBC. I LOATHE these ALT-Right TROLLS!!!! I am so sick of the double standard in this country!!! When the Right uses satire to incite white anger the Left is overreacting. When the Left uses satire to draw attention to an issue, you get fired. Craven F*****

17. I'd never paid attention to him before

and now that I've read this thread I find I may not agree with him on all things. But I know I smell serious danger right now. I'm with him on this one.

The joke wasn't funny because it wasn't meant to be funny. It wasn't even really a joke. As a sarcasm fan, it was brilliant.
