Default MSNBC Hosts Visit Obama

While some are freaking out because an executive at Fox asked Patraeus to consider running for office, here's what's ACTUALLY HAPPENING...

MSNBC Hosts Visit Obama



Quote:
MSNBC's prime time line-up was spotted entering the West Wing Tuesday afternoon for what host Ed Schultz tweeted was a meeting with President Barack Obama.

White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest released the following statement on the meeting:

Quote:
“This afternoon at the White House, the President met with influential progressives to talk about the importance of preventing a tax increase on middle class families, strengthening our economy and adopting a balanced approach to deficit reduction.”
This would be Maddow's FIFTH trip to meet personally with the president (at least)...

influential progressives = media's subservient lapdogs at Obama's command

Gee salty, this is what you said about FOX's Roger Ailes asking Paterus to run for President.

What ? That a propaganda machine has been linked to the Republican party?
So FOX is the propaganda machine of the republican party, but MSNBC is a news organization.

GEE, I just can't think of that word that describes this double standard....it starts with an H and is on the tip of my tongue.

I have a simple question really, who cares who talks to a president or any one else be it about running for public office or not? I sure couldn't care if Fox asked Paterus to run for POTUS or for a date really. I also couldn't care who Obama gives and interview too either as I've seen him on all the major networks at one time or other giving interviews.

Finally: Serious Talk About Taxes

Quote:
Dateline Washington D.C., December 4, 2012

Today, finally - a meeting of minds - serious minds - great minds - on the tax predicament now facing America: President B. Hussein Obama met with the Reverend Al Sharpton and television journalist extraordinaire Rachel Maddow to discuss taxes and the best way to deal with America's current tax quagmire (which is largely because, Bush, and the Republicans).

While there hasn't yet been an announcement on what decision was reached, those in the know say that America can rest easier tonight, knowing that the three greatest minds in the country have no doubt determined the proper course for the great ship The United States, through Republican-infested waters and storms of unrepentant Teabaggers, to that appropriately and equally taxed grand utopia some call NextTuesday™.

Presidential spokesunit Jay "Carney" Carney barked that, "The President (PBUH) in His wisdom has joined together today in a meeting of progressive minds with two of America's deepest thinkers - and as a result, when he gets back from His three-week Hawaiian vacation He will be clear with the American public, as He always is, being the President and leader of the most transparent administration in the history of the known universe. That is all".

So we can expect to see a nice in-depth investigative report on the President that includes information from this trip sometime in the near future?? I'd put money on that not happening.

Somebody has to counter the Fox machine.

Maddow will do a great job. The President will actually be able to get his message about the deficit out to citizens.

Why would the President bring Billo and Co. to the White House? Fox News outrage over it is sour grapes.

They just wanted to get their talking points in sync, maybe come up with some catchy headlines so they can be more effective at doing their masters bidding. Also, I heard they all took turns blowing him with Mathews taking the money shot.

This would be interesting if the author had shown much interest in how the right and FOX have operated. Instead of showing the integrity of admitting the outrages tool FOX is they hope to show examples that justify their activities. I mean if you are truly outraged at the media being involved in politics you should have shown the same concerns for FOX all this time. A little late to whine.
