VIDEO: MSDNC anchor unwittingly reminds GOP what they’re up against

Posted by: ST on September 19, 2011 at 9:27 pm

MSNDC anchor Thomas Roberts anchored his network’s coverage of our celebrity President’s “jobs plan” speech from earlier today and, while interviewing a guest about the speech and the GOP’s response to it, Roberts had some, er – interesting things to say, especially for a supposedly ‘unbiased’ network anchor. Watch/listen:

Note how he describes the term “class warfare is “bunk” and pledges “not to bring it up” (sound familiar?), and then asks “how can the right defend greed?”

This, of course, is how the debate on taxes, the deficit, the economy, etc will be framed from here on out – all the way up until the November 2012 elections, all in a repeat effort by our mainstream media to try to give Their Chosen Candidate four more years in office by way of shameless, unprecedented demagoguery and outright deception. In fact, CNN joined in the effort today to prop up the President’s “jobs plan” by alleging that “any serious budget expert’s analysis” says we must increase taxes on “the rich” in order to get the economy growing.

See what I mean? Sigh.

BTW, Roberts’ liberally biased comments shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone who has been reading Newsbusters for any length of time, or for anyone who puts themselves through the torture of watching MSDNC during any given time of the day. Click here for a searchable archive of documented left wing bias from Roberts’, who filled in a time or two for Keith Olbermann “back in the day” – which should explain an awful lot. 8-| In addition to being openly liberal, he’s also apparently openly gay – a fact which MSDNC allows him to use to the fullest advantage. Keep that in mind next time some blowhard from Media Mutters tries to suggest that its Fox News that blurs that lines between ‘unbiased’ media reporting and opinion commentary.

    Roberts probably had three people watching him. Maybe four if his mom remembered to turn on her TV.

  2. John says:

    In other words, these corporate broadcasters are waging psychological warfare on their fellow Americans. Indeed, there is no progress without propaganda.

  3. Ralph Gizzip says:

    When they Lean Forward it leaves them in a position to take it from behind. And we just laugh and laugh and laugh.

  4. Nox says:

    Not defending greed. Defending ambition, success, prosperity. If administration would embrace the American Dream instead of trying to tax it out of existence, they may actually help one of their constituents for once.

  5. Brontefan says:

    All biased media personnel [I won’t call them journalists!] should have a sign: “Slobbering Love Affair with Barack Obama” ~ and it should be posted whenever they are on camera.
    BTW, this bunk was tried in the 1920s unsuccessfully.

  6. Neo says:

    There is one underlying assumption that seems to be less spoken than the name “Lord Voldemort.”

    That assumption is that the “rich” don’t get any of the services from the federal government.

    I mean, the “balance” is always a trade off where the “rich” lose some of their income as taxes while everybody else loses some services from the federal government.
    Funny how that is never explicitly said.

    By the way, unless you have a lobbyist in DC, that assumption is true. Which brings us to “crony capitalism.”

  7. Chris Bennett says:

    Judging by the way they savaged Hillary for Obama in ’08, I’m not sure it’s MSDNC for the past few years as MSBHO.

  8. Mark Allen says:

    On Monday at 5 pm KIRO, the ABC affiliate in Seattle, stated the rich “pay a 15% tax” and left it at that. That’s what we’re up against.
