BP catastophe is ""like the Monica Lewinsky scandal" according to MSNBC
"Chris", the newsmodel, just asked a former Clinton speechwriter if he didn't agree with that assessment. Surprise! He didn't agree, nor did he seem impressed by her "analysis."

Geez...just when you think you've heard everything. :crazy:

7. My ex-best friend told me her husband did that segment. He's one of those at MSNBC
who puts the "story" into the prompter.

14. I wrote about this before...
he was hired years ago to bring the network "more to the right." And when I wrote to my friend about a week ago, and she told me her husband still works there, I told her I call and email MSNBC regularly to complain about their bias. When she told her husband that I thought they "leaned right" in daytime programming, he "almost did a spit-take." He said that was HIS segment, and she also told me the WH killed a banner that he wrote for the bottom of the screen. She will tell me more about it later.

3. They wish.
The media loves nothing more than a salacious scandal, preferrable involving an extramarital or underage sex partner. But since there is no sex involved here, the media will just pretend there is.

6. But there was pipe, drilling, pumping, and gushing
If that doesn't translate into a sexual metaphor, I don't know what does...

4. Chris Jansing. She did the same thing the other day, asking Ari Fleischer if the oil spill was
"Obama's Katrina." I started a thread about it: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...
