MSNBC: Racist Or Agenda Driven? Both? (With Video Addenda)

(Two posts today. Don't miss Sam's post below!)

As you may have heard, MSNBC curtailed their Tuesday, August 28, 2012 coverage of the 2012 Republicn National Convention in a particular way:
In lieu of airing speeches from former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis, a black American; Mia Love, a black candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from Utah; and Texas senatorial hopeful Ted Cruz, a Latino American, MSNBC opted to show commentary anchored by Rachel Maddow from Rev. Al Sharpton, Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews, Chris Hayes and Steve Schmidt.
Racism on the part of MSNBC?

Determination to continue painting the GOP as the political party of nothing but "white guys"?

Emulating Stalin along the lines of airbrushing?

If commenters have links to videos of the speeches given by any of the August 28, 2012 speakers at the convention, please leave those links in a comment.  I will try to add those videos to the body of the post.

Congressman Artur Davis:

Mayor Mia Love:

Senate hopeful Ted Cruz:


  1. If this doesn't show the bias of the MSM, I don't know what will.

    Showing 'minorities' at the RNC doesn't fit their narrative of the GOP being racist, so the simply don't include it, showing only white speakers.

    The shilling for the left is so transparent, it would be laughable were it not for real!

  2. yes,

    and it will be a long uphill battle. But here is the good news

    The media is acting like a spoiled brat. Look at the events in just the last 24 hours with the Yaho thing, the attacks on Mia Love...

    These media folks were indoctirnated in colleges to belief they were the arbiters of truth and knowledge and we the people should bekieve them. in 2008, the media had its greatest success ever convincing America to hire a guy to be leader of the free world who could run a Starbucks.

    Now all of them are expereincing shrinking viewership and revenue..

    And more importantly peole arent just not buying their papers and watching their program, they arent believing them. The polls have a 10% advantage to DNC because they know Obama is behind. He ans DNC are behind and the O team spent all of its money on the pregame warmup talking smack about the opponent. The kickoff just started a day or so ago and they knew their guy isnt going to be able to deliver.

  3. Nobody on the planet is more hypocritical than a liberal!

    Back when I was growing up, the one liberal family on our block bragged on and on about how open minded they were about the race issue. Then one day, their daughter brought home a black date. The parents just about blew a gasket!

  4. They ignore whatever doesn't fit the agenda.

    Having people of color speaking at what they want their handful of listeners to believe is a klan rally doesn't fit the narrative.

  5. Typical strategy of the right, call the one who points out the racism and hypocrisy of your group racists. Nah, it ain't working guys. We all know the GOP are racists, haters, misogynists.

  6. The all white network of Tingles and Schultz are all assheads.

  7. Liberalmann,
    You are living in an alternate universe or something.

    If Fox News were to cut the coverage of anyone not "white bread" at the DNC, you'd be screaming to the high heavens.

    Are there racists in the GOP? Yes. In the Party of the Ass? Yes. Libertarians? Yes. Communists? Yes. Apolitical people? Yes. What matters, then, is the actions that people take with regard to racism.

    In the case of MSNBC, racist is as racist does.

  8. I'll never understand why LIberals can't THINK. The post is SO CLEAR and yet ... geeez.

    It was amazing that MSNBC did that, but it's more amazing that the mainstream media won't skewer them for it. The Left is truly a sick bunch of pond scum.

  9. Racist or agenda driven or both?


    AOW, "The Party of the Ass"... lol!

  10. I've now added videos to the body of the post.

  11. This is my comment that I posted, previously on "Living The Grand Life".

    I wouldn't waste my time watching anything there. I opted to see the complete coverage on a bona fide news channel. It would seem, however, that the, reported, voids in coverage by MSNBC bespeaks the disingenuous nature of the 'Left'!

    I'll add: Since no one of any importance watches MSNBC, nothing much was missed. B.O. is going down, finally!

  12. Good grief!

    Look at this "beheading" picture of Paul Ryan on the cover the the New York Times.

    Tammy Swofford pointed out the above to me.

  13. Nothing will ever change until we get together to storm the bastion of the enemedia with pitchforks, scythes, clubs, stones, rifles, machine-guns and FIREBOMBS.

    The MEDIA is our truest ENEMY. The MEDIA must be DESTROYED -- taken apart stone by stone, board by board, brick, by brick.

    ~ FreeThinke

    1. The 'Media' has been the way the 'Media' is since I was a young Marine in Viet Nam. Lies on lies based on lies. Some things never change.

  14. Politics as usual. In the same category as redistricting. Sure it's discriminatory but like the old saying goes, if you want a free press you have to own one. Then you can slant and twist the truth any way you like. Just like blogging, we lean every whichaway.

    BTW, I notice AOW is taking longer and longer to load. Fox News, with all the junk they have on their page, still comes up just as quick as ever, for a comparison. What's happening is "waiting on xxx.com, waiting on yyy.com and so on. Waiting on too many outside sources. I had that problem with Islamanazi until I started deleting a bunch of my accumulated little goodies and addons, and didn't make the same mistake twice with Newsbleat. Just sayin'....

  15. MSNBC doesn't even pretend to be nalanced and unbiased.

  16. Mr. AOW,

    "Nobody on the planet is more hypocritical than a liberal!"

    The common denominator of liberalism is immaturity; the manifestation of which may be demonstrated in various ways.

  17. MSNBC has become the poster child for all that is unseemly about America. Why they haven't gone out of business is far beyond my comprehension. Who watches their filth?

  18. Does the convention get that much viewership?

    PBS covered most all of it so watch PBS.

    How many people want to listen to an airline stewardess who's mayor of a backwater Utah town which is run by a professional town manager?

  19. ”Tuesday night after rising GOP star Mia Love brought down the house with her inspiring convention speech, the stomach-turning Left labeled the black conservative a “token” and an “Aunt Tom.

    “Meanwhile, revoltingly racist, woman-hating Wikipedia vandals were hard at work updating her entry with disgusting slurs like “House Nigger” and “dirty, worthless whore.” The page called her a “total sell-out to the Right Wing Hate machine and the greedy bigots who control the GOP.”
    —Washington Times

    Wikipedia repaired most of the vandalism by now; it should never have happened in the first place. This is what the Democratic Party has become under the mantle of progressivism and Liberalman, EzzZee, and Ducky dare call us racists! Damn hypocrites.

  20. Ahem.....

    Black CNN camerawoman who was racially taunted at Republican National Convention is 'not surprised' it happened

    Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/black-cnn-camerawoman-racially-taunted-republican-national-convention-speaks-incident-article-1.1147983#ixzz254Xh6xWt

    'nuff said.

  21. Ahem...

    “This situation could happen to me at the Democratic convention or standing on the street corner,” "she said"

    So, Liberalmann, what is your point?

  22. Quoted from New York Post:

    An attendee at the Republican National Convention was given the boot Tuesday for racially taunting a black CNN camerawoman, an incident the news network confirmed after it was reported on Twitter.

    “GOP attendee ejected for throwing nuts at African American CNN camera woman + saying ‘This is how we feed animals,’” tweeted Current anchor David Shuster.

    The identity of the attendee was not immediately known, and it was not clear whether the person was a delegate or just someone with a ticket to the convention center.

    Had I seen such a thing happen, I would have kicked that idiot’s ass. But here’s a thought—and not an unreasonable one— suppose some scumbag leftist went in to the GOP convention for the purpose of causing this incident with, of all persons, a TV camera operator.

    In point of fact, whoever did this is no conservative.

  23. Jon,
    Thank you so much for your Ahem response.

    I am inordinately busy right now and can barely find time to get to my own web site.

  24. Liberalmann doesn't have a point, he's an idiot.

    But here’s a thought—and not an unreasonable one— suppose some scumbag leftist went in to the GOP convention for the purpose of causing this incident with, of all persons, a TV camera operator.

    This is a real common occurrence at Tea Parties.

    Why don't we talk about how many minorities Obama has working for him at his campaign headquarters? Or how well the Congressional Dems pay their women?

    The strongest racism and sexism you will ever find is from the left.

  25. In point of fact Sinclair, that mouth breather is one of your own.

    No, couldn't possibly be a conservative. Get off your high horse.

  26. Liberalmann makes me like Duck.

    Duck isnt even trying to defend MSNBCs obvious prejudice against Reps.

    As to the peanut thrower. I have never said the GOP is filled with Saints. The difference is in the DNC folks are cheered for showing photos of beheaed conservatives, telling Reps to go to hell, and calling Reps murders/tax cheats.

    In the RNC, throw peanuts at the a camera operater and you are ejected. No cheering just jeering. Your name is like mud and hard to find because no one will give you an audience because you are an idiot.

  27. Sorry Liberalgirlie and Quack-Quack... my money's in the hat that the peanut throwing idiot AND the 'African American CNN camera woman' were BOTH planted there by YOUR sick, wacko degenerates. It's a pretty easy conclusion to come to, with the track record that your panty waist group of morons have amassed.

    (Also sorry if I've overstepped the caveats of this blog -- that was about as much as I could clean it up.)

  28. Black Sheep,
    Thanks for letting me know about the time-to-load issue. I'll check with Warren.

  29. Marine4ever,
    I see no problem with the comment you published.

  30. And a mighty "High Yo THANK YOU!" to a true patriot, AOW!

  31. M4e,

    "BOTH planted there by YOUR sick, wacko degenerates."

    It wouldn't surprise me a bit, Devil Dog!

  32. And just for the record, Mayor Mia Love's words and thoughts NEARLY brought tears to the eyes of this old, down-and-out, Marine on the skids!

  33. Ducky:

    "How many people want to listen to an airline stewardess who's mayor of a backwater Utah town"


    "Mayor Mia Love's words and thoughts NEARLY brought tears to the eyes of this old, down-and-out, Marine"

    Now here is a contrast that is quite telling of the true "compassion" (not) of the Left!

  34. The MSM alters and edits video, audio, images, to suit their agenda. Most of us expected this. I won't watch them any more

    Right Truth

  35. I was so impressed by the true DIVERSITY of our party and the quality of all the speakers.

    It's not at all surprising that the media took pains to cover up as much of the diversity of our speakers as they can. The liberals can't afford the risk that a black or Hispanic or woman in the viewing audience might actually hear or see these speakers and realize that everything Obama and the Dems said about the GOP was a lie!

    Ahem... “This situation could happen to me at the Democratic convention or standing on the street corner,” "she said"

    So, Liberalmann, what is your point?


    My point? It didn't now did it?


  37. Did anyone see this?

    "My point? It didn't now did it?"

    Is this guy ever coherent?

  38. "They are going to hammer Ryan and Romney" Where have you been? Were you in a small province of Indonesia or was it Kenya?

    They have been hammering away all summer calling them names left and right. The Obama spent more than they took in to produce these adds and then added another 500,000 of stimulus money to MSNBC and the result ---Romney up 3-4 percent.

    The speeches from the DNC will be filled with rhetoric to be sure but the message will fall flater than the current GDP.

    I predict the convention in Charlotte ends in a chaotic mess that damages the Obama campaign further. Obama's campaign is a mess (maybe because Arthur Davis switched sides). Every step of the way, they have failed.

    I CRAVE hearing words like that! That's as good as a four inch soaking rain during a drought.

  40. AND this to JonBerg --
    I was waiting with GREAT anticipation to see what your comeback to Liberalgirliee would be -- Outstanding! Just OUTSTANDING!

  41. Liberalmann: proof that anal sex only produces turds.

  42. Thank you Dr. of Anthropology Whyte. Prior to your reserach few realized that fecal matter was the origin of what's now known as "Liberalism" or even more absurd, "progressive". I hereby nominate you for the next Nobel Prize for REALITY!!!!!

  43. DNC Florida delegates left stranded as bus fails to pick them up.....no comment from DNC committee

    DNC delegate (California??) arrested for public drunk and disorder

    Technically the convention has not even started

  44. Always, REALLY want to see the video you posted. I guess I am too dumb to find where it is on your site. Help!

  45. To be clear,

    I don't mean the videos of the fine speeches at the RNC. I mean the videos:

    "MSNBC opted to show commentary anchored by Rachel Maddow from Rev. Al Sharpton, Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews, Chris Hayes and Steve Schmidt."

    I have heard it was intemperate.
